During the keynote address, Seidenberg noted that today’s more than 2 billion Internet users and 5 billion wireless users form the biggest market for technology the world has ever known. He said that collaborations between hardware and software, computing and communications, technology giants and thousands of entrepreneurs will be crucial to the industry’s ability to deliver relevant, personalized communications and entertainment services to billions of individuals.
"People are using technology to erase the boundaries between home and work, here and there, virtual and real," Seidenberg said. "They imagine access to everything at their fingertips and they want it now, no matter where they are or what screen they have at hand. They are challenging us to deliver better products, faster networks, more simplicity and more creativity."
Ultra-fast intelligent networks, including Verizon’s advanced 4G LTE, fiber-to-the-home and global IP networks, will spread innovation on a global scale and help lead the way to the future, according to Seidenberg.
"The more we infuse consumer electronics with the power and intelligence of high-speed networks, the faster we’ll create new demand and accelerate the cycle of innovation and growth that drives the industry forward," he said.
