Just as the internet revolutionized how the world accessed information and communication through the 1990's the ongoing development in speed, bandwidth, and functionality will continue to cause fundamental changes to how our world operates for decades to come. Millions of people worldwide are using the internet to share information, make new association and communicate. Individual and businesses, from students and journalists, to consultants, programmers and corporate giants are all harnessing g the power of the internet. The major trends Globalism, Communities, Virtual realities, Bandwidth, Wireless, Grids, and Integration are shaping the future of the internet are summarized paragraph by paragraph along with extrapolated predictions.
The future of the internet global distribution of information and knowledge at lower and lower cost will continue to lift the world community and generation to come. People will have access to any information they wish, get smarter and sooner and be more aware of the world outside their local environment. A better inform humanity will make better macro-level decisions, and an increasingly integrated world will drive international relations towards a global focus. Attachment countries will marginally decreases and attachment to the earth as a shared resource will significantly increases.
The future of the internet communication revolution is ongoing, now unities communities as it recently united networks. Not everything about the internet is global; an interconnected world is also locally interconnected. The internet will increasingly be used for communication within communities as much as across countries local communities will organize in virtual space and take increasing advantage of group communication tools such as mailing list, News groups, and websites, and towns, and cities will become more organized and empowered at the neighborhood level.
The future of internet technology revolution will continue to be made in human's image. Experiments with wide area voice and video communication on the internet began to be held in early 1990's. VOIP began to be used voice communication in 2002. Internet video phones would not be far behind. The virtual reality will be applied to innovative ways to navigate the internals information universe, for hyper realistic games, and for group communications. There will come a day when we will be able to have dinner with a group of friends each in a different city. The increasingly sophisticated virtual experiment will continue to change how we understand the nature of reality, experience, art, and human relation.
The future of internet growth in bandwidth viability shows little sign of. Cable modems and telephones based on DSL modems will continue to spread high speed internet throughout populated areas. High resolution audio, video, and virtual reality will be increasingly available online and on demand, and the cost of all kinds of internet connection will continue of drop.
The future of internet wireless communications is the wireless frequencies has two great advantages, one is there are no infrastructure startup or maintenance costs other than the basic stations, and other is it free users to become mobile, taking internet use from an dimensions to three. Wireless internet networks will offer increasingly faster services at vastly lower costs over wider distances, eventually pushing out physical transmission systems. The internet open TCP/IP design was originally inspired by use of radio communication network in 1970's. The wireless technologies experimented with in the 1990's were continually improved by the early 2000's several technologies provides reliable, secure, high bandwidth networking that work in crowded city centers and on the move, providing nearly the same mobility for internet communications as for the cellular phone.
The future of internet grid movements is an inevitable as the spread of the internet seems now. The connection of thousands of computers on the internet together to solve problems, often called "grid computing". In a large scale example of the connected internet computer cycle from home users across the world will be harnessed together to be provide enormous reservoirs of computer power for all sorts of purposes. Increasingly used for scientific and engineering research, grids can create processing power houses for larger than any one organization by itself.
The future of the internet integration with an increasingly number of other technology is as natural as a musician's experimentation with notes. The internet will become increasingly integrated with phones, televisions, home appliances, portable digital assistance, and range of other small hardware devices, providing an unprecedented, nearly uniform layer of integrated data communication. User will be able to across, status, and control this connected infrastructure from anywhere on the internet.
One of the leading efforts to define future of the next generation internet is the "Internet2 Projects" which grew out of the transition of the NSFNET to the Very high speed Backbone Network Service (vBNS). The vBNS supported very high bandwidth research applications.
