In most of the ICT solutions of today Internet and telecom is a necessary and basic infrastructure. The smartphone revolution has opened up a new field of applications that enrich and creates value for people in all aspects of life. We are only in the beginning of a society where everything is connected and everything can be part of global or local applications. The technology continues to develop towards more powerful processing and higher bandwidth communication. This development makes completely new applications feasible and raises new research issues accordingly.
Internet and Telecom engages by far the largest part of the research at SICS. SICS has the expert competence to support Swedish industry and public sector to stay in the forefront of this development. Our current application areas include:
