Communications & Internet (Web3)
Standardized communication networks (DSL, 2G – 6G, WiFi, etc.) are innovation drivers of applications for the 2nd generation of the Internet, such as search engines, social networks, sales platforms, etc. The fifth generation of wireless communications systems, 5G, has already been deployed and 6G is currently being standardised. With these technologies will come reliable connections with low latencies for the Industry 4.0 or the Internet of Things. Further, digital distributed ledgers (blockchain) might evolve as the DNA of the Internet. Based thereon, digital currencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum), NFTs and Smart Contracts might form the 3rd generation of the Internet, the “Web3”.
