  • Abstract
  • This paper deals with Telecommunication trends
    from ancient time to the next decades. First of
    all, I bring a brief history of beginning of
    telecommunication and than trends in
    microelectronics technology as predicted by SIA
    in their roadmap will be presented. Based on ever
    shrinking geometries of solid state devices and
    ever decreasing size of telecommunication
    equipment, the number of telecommunication
    subscribers will add up in the next few decades,
    until in average every man on earth has a mobile
    phone. The demand for higher bandwidth leads us
    to the use of optical fibres in networks around
    the world. This trend also boosts equipment
    development, as we will see in another part of
    this paper. Coding will be in future very
    important. I close my paper with some poems of
    Ferdowsi, where you see that coding was used 2500
    years ago.

  • 1. Introduction
  • 50 kilometres away from Shiraz we have persepolis
    the capital of the hochamanid dynasty, the cradle
    of communication. Herodoth describes in his 8th
    book part 98 the post system of that time. He
    writes that the Iranian have very fast horses.
    They are kept in places with the name angereion.
    Hedjazi writes in the magazine no. 4 of Ptt that
    the word post comes from sanscrit and means
    constant. That word has been overtaken in Latein.
    Posta comes from the word positus which means
    something like the place where you can deposit
    things and this word is in greek pistoli. The
    first telegraph was in the year 481 B. C. during
    the time of King Xerxes when Mardunieh
    telegraphed the conquering of Athens. On 24th of
    May 1844 at 8.45 o clock sent morse a telegraph
    from Washington to Baltimore and transmitted a
    sentence from bible what for marvellous creates
    the God. They did not believe
  • him and said he is Shalatan. Only 16 years after
    that Siemens made one of the largest
  • networks from England via Kermanshah, Isfahan,
    Shiarz and Bushehr to India.
  • 2. Technology Trends of Microelectronics
  • The technology of electronics goes to smaller and
    smaller structures in the direction of nano
    electronics. The smaller structures bring new
    effects in the semiconductor technology and also
    new directions. The nano technology goes two
    different ways, the top down and the bottom up.
    In the first case we go to smaller structures by
    physical, chemical and mechanical processes,
    where as in the second case we will have complex
    systems by atomic and molecular structures of the
    components. The research on the carbonnat pipes
    is an important section of research which I can
    not say much about it, because it is not my area
    of activity.
  • The Roadmap of Technology Trends in
    Microelectronics, published by the SIA in 2002
    SIA 2002 shows a dramatic increase in DRAM
    storage capacity and on-chip transistor density.
    This fact is due to ever decreasing gate lengths
    in modern MOS processes. The roadmap predicts a
    decrease of the gate length of a MOS transistor
    used in modern microprocessor chips from 53nm in
  • 2002 to 28nm in 2006, 18nm in 2010 and 9nm in
    2016. Using these figures, the storage capacity
    on a single chip will change from 512Mbit in 2002
    up to 2Gbit in 2006 to 64Gbit in 2016. According
    to the roadmap, the nominal power supply voltage
    of a logic or microprocessor chip will drop from
    1.1V in 2002 to 0.9V in 2006 down to 0.4V in
    2016. The realisation of threshold voltage of 0,4
    V will be very difficult.

3.3. Optical Communication Systems The optical
Systems are the most important systems for an
efficient core network, because they are the
answer for broader bandwidth in the future. DWDM
and digital cross connects of communication
networks are the answer for the new standards in
new communication. The optical transport
hierarchies are as follows
3. Microwave-, Satellite-, Optical-, Internet-,
Mobile- and High definition TV-Communication-Syste
ms 3.1 Microwave communication Systems Microwave
communication is an interesting alternative to
the optical cables. The microwave is outside of
dense areas the only alternative. Their repeater
spacing is ca. 80 kilometres. In most of the time
the microwave is cheaper than the cable system.
Therefore the countries of the third world mostly
begin with microwaves systems, when they build
the infrastructure of their communication system.
Unfortunately offers microwave technology not
enough bandwidth. Therefore microwave systems
have to use PSK modulation. Just now labs develop
256 PSK-Systems which is very critical to noise
and can not survive without coding.

1987 I realised a low noise optical receiver with
HEMT transistors and feedback over 3 stages. I
described the results in former conference.
It shows that the Bit stream between US/Canada
and Europe was already 4 Tbit/s in the year
2000. Alcatel and Wireless companies are planning
to build a fibre optical Transmission between US
Canada and Europe to transport 4 Tbit/s over
only 4 fibres using WDM technology. Some OPEC
members and oil companies are planning to build
the same system around the globe with a length of
30.000 km, using Optical Amplifier
Technology. 3.4 Mobile communication Systems We
will have soon everywhere Universal mobile
communication systems (UMTS) with the 1,920
2.120 GHz with an average cell radius of 500 m
900 m and transmit power of 125 mW 2

Figure 3.3.1 Bitrate per Cable in Tbit/s The
figure 3.3.1 shows the development of Bits
transported over one single cable. The squares
standing on their corner are representing copper
cables, the upper squares for optical fibres.
Just now (2005) we are able to transport 12
Tbit/s over one optical fibre using WDM
(wavelength division multiplexing). 40Gbit/s x
300 wavelength 12000 Gbit/s 12Tbit/s. The
figure 3.3.2 is a prediction of the possible bit
rate trends in optical fibres 2.

  • 4. Telecommunication Subscriber Trends
  • (in Millions)
  • Telecommunication technology resulted in the
    growth of the global information infrastructure.
    The Internet, a network of networks, is
    revolutionizing how information is accessed and
    how people communicate. The Internet has
    potential to change a persons lifestyle with
    services ranging from shopping, finding local
    entertainment to helping with childrens
    homework. Technological development in the last
    several years combined with new network
    architectures interconnecting various
    heterogeneous information systems created a truly
    global information infrastructure. Many future
    broadband applications such as streaming video
    and audio, real-time distance learning, medical
    imaging, movie downloads, and online gaming,
    targing both residential and enterprise targeting
    users, demand high bandwidth. An outcome of this
    demand were several technologies under
    development to provide advanced network services
    with increased capacity of 40 Gabit/s per second,
    Internet Protocol version 6 (IVv6), and IP over
    Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM)
  • 3.6 High Definition TV
  • The high definition TV of the future will have
    seven times more points 720 x 576 points than the
    todays TVs with 720 x 576 points. The Premiere
    a pay TV organisation, in Germany will bring
    three HDTV programmes, for cinema, sport and
    documentation at the end of this year. You can
    buy at german markets plasma flat screens with
    105 cm x 65 cm x 18 cm for only 1.490,-- . They
    show brilliant pictures with these TV sets. But
    there is still a lot to do to decide the digital
    Video Broadcasting (DVB) standard. European
    Telecommunication standard institute (ETSI) has
    published a draft for Digital Video Broadcasting
    (DVB). It describes in 70 pages second generation
    framing structure, channel coding and modulation
    systems for Broadcasting, Interactive Services,
    New Gathering and other broadband satellite
    applications. It will be difficult to find a
    compromise between microwave, satellite, mobile
    communication systems who have not enough
    bandwidth on one side and optical communication
    systems on the other side, who wants 140 Mbit/s
    for a TV programm, because of its DWDM

Fig 4.1 Trends in Telecommunication
Subscribers The figure 4.1 shows the trends of
the number of fixed and mobile phone users. It
shows that we will have nearly 10 Billion handies
around the year 2030. This means, every
inhabitant of the earth has one mobile phone in
average, if the trend of the last years will
Figure 4.2 Long Term Bitrate
Trends The Figure 4.2 shows trends in Digital
Access Technologies for a small office using two
different scenarios The first scenario is a
cautious scenario, predicting that one person
might use a capacity of up to 200 Mbit/s for data
exchange from his home office using modem
technology, whereas a more optimistic scenario
predicts a bitrate of about 1 Gbit/s used by one
single person.
5 Trends in Networked Equipment
  • 6. Equipment Visions
  • Equipment visions is to be divided into several
  • Regarding Computers, I would like to list the
    development on the basic of past inventions.
  • Calculation machines (Schickard, Babbage, Zuse)
  • The Myth of Thinking Machines (Mortimer Taube
  • Engines of Creation (K. Eric Drexler 1986)
  • The Future of Robot and Human Intelligence (Hans
    Moravec 1988)
  • The Age of Intelligent Machines (Ray Kurzweil
  • The Age of Spiritual Machines (Ray Kurzweil 1999)
  • The key words of the Computer trends are
  • Desktop, Deskside, Laptop, Notebook, Portable,
    Ultraportable, Personal Digital Assistants

Figure 5.1 Trends in Networked Equipment Figure
5.1 shows the trend of networked equipment 3.
The TV set is being counted to the networked
equipment. As one can see, each inhabitants owns
at average nearly one TVset. The trend in fixed
and mobile subscribers goes to the same limit, as
the above diagram shows. You will have one
equipment for Internet, telephony in fixed
network, mobile and Television. Figure 5.2
shows trends in screen development 3. Beginning
around the year 1940, where black-and-white TV
sets usually having around 100.000 pixels,
increasing to around 600.000 pixels for color TV
sets and around 1.500.000 pixels for
state-of-the-art high definition TV sets (HDTV)
in the 1980s and 1990s. Regarding PC screens,
there is a trend to increase pixel count using
CRTs to nearly 5.000.000, whereas flat panel
display technology will probably expand pixel
count to more than 10.000.000 pixels per screen
about the year 2025.
Regarding mobile equipment after the handy,
there will be UMTS and next generations. TV sets
will probably emerge into Screen
Wallpapers. Special equipment are Video Games and
developments for Handicaped People like Sound
Future for the Deaf . 7. A Vision The Age of
Digital Lifestyles or The Third Culture The
vision of the future We will have limited
molecules and quasi unlimited bits.
  • The analogy to the present lifestyle of the
    mobile society with traffic by road, rail and
  • The history from fairy tales and dreams to
    recognizeable facts
  • The trend Interpretations and predictions
    utilizing a synergy of the above forecasts
  • The future Limited molecules versus
    quasi-unlimited bits
  • Telecommunication establishes an information
    society and with that democracy all over the
  • Telecommunication via Internet Universities
    brings better education to the people in
    developing countries

8. Conclusions The paper gives an outlook into
the future of telecommunication. On the basis of
past development trends Ive tried to picture the
future. Let me close with a sentence of Ian
Pearson, British Telecoms futurologist, which he
said in 1999 Accuracy is impossible but
blurred vision is better than none at all. 9.
