This publication summarizes the materials and conclusion of a workshop held by ITU from 6 to 8 April 2005, organized by the Strategy and Policy Unit (SPU). This workshop served as a forum for policy-makers, regulators, mobile operators, content providers, industry players, consultants, academics and sociologists to exchange information, experiences and visions relating to future ubiquitous network societies. Topics covered include the impact of ubiquitous technologies on the traditional telecommunication industry, the role and application of RFID, privacy and public policy issues. Country case studies on Italy, Japan, Korea and Singapore are also featured.



Ubiquitous network societies: The case of the Republic of Korea

The concept of a “ubiquitous network society” implies a world in which information, and the tools to exploit it, are available “anytime, anywhere, by anything and anyone”. A ubiquitous network society is thus the logical, long-term outcome of the drive to create Information Societies, as espoused by the World Summit on the Information Society (Geneva 2003 and Tunis 2005).
