Delivery, development, technology, interface, communication, integration, innovation, backbone and anticipation can be described as a great corporate model or the making or a micro-government take your pick, Google is in this space. Too much attention is paid to search while tracking, navigation, high level communication and breaking ground to connectivity is Larry Page’s vision to successful full operationalized global Google implementation. This is connectivity will produce access and have sustainable impact.
As we settle on one model Google has set its sights on the next evolution “Google to Fund, Develop Wireless Networks in Emerging Markets” penetrating the advancement of global access to technology reducing and the digital divide one network and node at a time.
The Wall Street Journal reported “Google Inc. GOOG -1.07% is deep into a multipronged effort to build and help run wireless networks in emerging markets as part of a plan to connect a billion or more new people to the Internet.”
Google’s intention has always been expansive to create a Google nation of access to technology. This new implementation to give technology to developing nations is a sustainable development and broadens the intentionality to network, communicate and exchange information.
“These wireless networks would serve areas such as sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia to dwellers outside of major cities where wired Internet connections aren’t available, said people familiar with the strategy. The company has begun talking to regulators in countries such as South Africa and Kenya about changing current rules to allow such networks to be built en masse. Some wireless executives say they expect such changes to happen in the coming years.”
This technology is a leap forward to innovation shrinking global spheres to provide access to information that supports equity, inclusion and economic development for small and start-ups.
The networks also could be used to improve Internet speeds in urban centers, these people said. In some cases, Google aims to use airwaves reserved for television broadcasts, but only if government regulators allowed it, these people said.”
The economics of technology reduces the digital divide that can advance women and others to form trade, partnerships and teams that change developing nations to economic hubs centers made-up of virtual intelligence centers. Governments will have to determine the rule of thumb and structural roadmap that integrates infrastructure, smart grid viability and networks to deliver accessibility to the internet.
“Google plans to team up with local telecommunications firms and equipment providers in the emerging markets to develop the networks, as well as create business models to support them, these people said. It is unclear whether Google already has lined up such deals or alliances.”
The partnerships will lead to new ventures that backbone will drive new wealth and support derivative solutions such as, healthcare through telemedicine enhancing the work of Doctors Without Borders for example. This new expansion by Google can support education and online learning practices. The viability of this capability reduces one’s carbon footprint by using green and clean processes versus the traditional asset model of constructing facilities. The traditional asset model can lead to national intelligence zones reflective of free trade zones models that produce global exchange of commerce, tariffs and processing with government oversight.
“As part of the plan, Google has been working on building an ecosystem of new microprocessors and low-cost smartphones powered by its Android mobile operating system to connect to the wireless networks, these people said. And the Internet search giant has worked on making special balloons or blimps, known as high-altitude platforms, to transmit signals to an area of hundreds of square miles, though such a network would involve frequencies other than the TV broadcast ones.”
The result of new innovation is more Big Data to be parsed and structured. Connectivity pushes more content into the internet market space. Further, the overloaded systems delivered by current communication and telephony giants will be forced to expand their infrastructure and retrofit green to jump into the new market. Currently, the market is not braced for wide global expansion. The result is the need for advancing sustainability planning to determine the resources, requirements, land, air, innovation, partners, environmental and policies needed to take the forward leap across platforms.
Google could bank that many cannot come into quick compliance taking the market beyond reach to own the space that promotes the Google backbone such as, phones and more for a short-term capital and intelligence gain in a managed window.
