  4. Scope of Technologie /Services

  5. Services • Shared Business Networks (V-LANs), IP Telephony • Fast Internet (multimedia; experienced economy) • Other (triple play: TV/Internet/phone) Areas/ target groups: Public: E-Government E-Health E-Learning E-Communities (E-Culture, E-Safety) Businesses: E-Business E-Commerce E-Learning

  6. St@dsRing Leeuw@rden • National policy: Leave it to the market. Rural regions: market failure! • Artery: City investment in Open StadsRing, 33 km • Managed dark fiber at cost price (based upon public utility ROI) • Veins: Last mile policy: Pilots and research, organisation of concerted demand and supply; exploration on business models • FTTI: education, culture, health care, government, commercial services

  7. Successes,Problems Broadband (innovation!) is on the agenda By the end of 2004: 100 organisations connected Hybrid solutions, scalable connectivity (no cherry picking) New service providers enter the market Development of community nets: networked services Competition lowers prices Start of consumer services (wireless, fed by StadsRing) Anti-lobby from Incumbants KPN (nat. Operator): free Internet for schools Legal issues pending: State Support / false competition Dark Fibre not a regular service: specific marketing

  15. SOME VISIONAIRS: I think there is a world market for maybe 5computers. IBM Chairman Thomas Watson, 1943 If the automobile had followed the same development as the computer, a Rolls Royce would today cost $100, get a million miles per gallon, and explode once a year killing everyone inside.Robert Cringely in InfoWorld In a few minutes a computer can make a mistake so great that it would have taken many men many months to equal it. Anonymous Ict-applicaties worden de zuurstof voor onze maatschappij.Prof. Dr. Ir. Nico Baken, 2002 Whoever makes the most mistakes, wins Think Global, act Local Where is the knowledge we have lost in Information? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
