What's the Internet For, Anyway?
Given that more than half the traffic (and growing) over the Internet (fixed and mobile) is video content, the discourse around network investment and future design has been dominated by the role of the content providers in the broadband ecosystem. To ISP's the content providers represent both a source of network stress and a potential pool of revenue to be tapped. And to many content providers, the internet is viewed primarily as a new content delivery network with both opportunities and risks. But in fact, not only is the internet used for many other things like e-commerce, the actual amount of revenue generated by the content industry is relatively small compared to the economic value generated by these other activities. In the CFP Fall 2013 plenary, we will explore the significant changes that both the content and broadband industries are going through in their repective industries, but more importantly, in their co-evolutionary relationship. Where do we see our symbiosis and opportunites for collaboration vs conflicts and tussles? How have these dynamics changed over time?
