OECD: Tomorrow's Internet about Things

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has issued its bi-annual Communications Outlook. As usual the Outlook is packed with a wealth of information and analysis about mobile and broadband developments in its member countries. It notes the growth in mobile broadband, fuelled by inexpensive, flat-rate mobile data plans and proliferation of smartphones and tablets. A related press release cites the Republic of Korea as being the top-ranked mobile broadband country followed by Nordic nations.

Analyst Taylor Reynolds discusses the impact of the Internet in the clip below and predicts that the Internet of tomorrow will be the Internet of "things" with devices like electricity meters increasingly communicating information over broadband networks.
