55 Days Remain Until the 10th Internet Governance Forum in Joao Pessoa, Brazil

By Janis Karklins

On behalf of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) I would like to extend the official invitation from the United Nations Secretary-General which cordially invites and encourages all stakeholders to participate in the upcoming 10th annual meeting of the Internet Governance Forum, being held this year in the beautiful coastal city of João Pessoa, Brazil.

IGF 2015 takes place at a turning point in the history of Internet governance. The ten-year review of the WSIS is an opportunity to set a forward-looking vision for the Information Society, but also to discuss the renewal of the IGF’s mandate. Furthermore, with the Sustainable Development Summit, this year offers a unique opportunity for the community to articulate the value of ICTs and the Internet in supporting a people-centric and development oriented Information Society. Many of these issues will be at the heart of the IGF’s discussions.

Towards IGF 2015 Outputs

This year some innovative processes are under way, leading to tangible outputs:

‘Policy Options for Connecting the Next Billion’ exercise, which aims to create better synergies and create linkages between the IGF and National and Regional IGF initiatives that are mushrooming around the world. The process that has been put in place by the MAG strives to produce a community driven, bottom-up developed IGF output. It is direct response to the recommendation of the UN CSTD Working Group on improvements of IGF that called for more tangible outcomes from IGF. Information on how to contribute to this initiative in a variety of ways can be found here.

IGF Best Practice Forums (BPFs) are working to produce diverse outputs intended to become robust resources, to serve as inputs into other pertinent forums, and to evolve and grow over time on the subjects of:

  1. Developing meaningful multistakeholder participation mechanisms,
  2. Regulation and mitigation of unsolicited communications (e.g. “spam”),
  3. Establishing and supporting Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRT) for Internet security, IV. Practice to counter abuse against women online,
  4. Creating an Enabling Environment for IPv6 Adoption,
  5. Enabling Environments for Establishing successful IXPs.

All interested individuals and organizations are invited to join this community driven work. Information on how to join and participate in the BPFs can be found here.

IGF Dynamic Coalitions, some of which have been working since the first IGF in 2006, and others who have just began their work on important and emerging issues related to Internet Governance, are open to all interested stakeholders. This year some of the IGF Dynamic Coalitions will be presenting their work to the broader IGF community in a dedicated main session. This work will be available for public comment leading up to the IGF.

Presence of the UN General Assembly President (or his representative), as well as review co-facilitators (ambassadors of Latvia and UAE to UN in NYC) at the IGF, will provide significant relevance to this multistakeholder engagement.

Registration is now open via the IGF website. More than 1,000 representatives from Governments, private sector, civil society and the technical community, have already registered. Thousands more are expected to join both in person and through online participation. Newcomers and first-time IGF participants are also encouraged to participate in the work of IGF.

We look forward to working with all of you online and seeing many of you at the IGF in November.

IFA 2015: A messy jumble of 4K TVs, smartwatches, and troubled IoT devices

By all accounts, IFA—Europe’s largest technology show—should be a complete disaster. Right up until the evening the show opens to the public, and while the press days are still taking place, the labyrinthine Berlin Messe is a chaotic mix of industrial scale construction and confused journalists attempting to not get themselves killed by a wobbly, unfinished booth. And there’s no method to the madness either; no sense that a human ever looked at the insanity of the Messe’s layout and thought, “no, this is a disaster waiting to happen.” Billion-dollar companies are thrown in alongside no-name case makers and startups, while others are made to occupy halls that seem to exist only in the imagination of IFA organisers.

Yet somehow, everyone gets through it. This year’s IFA might not have been the gangbusters, headline-stealing show of years past, but it played stage to notable announcements from some of the world’s biggest technology companies, as well as a bunch of interesting tech (the best of which is in the gallery below). Sony went ahead and unveiled its new range of Xperia Z5 phones, the “Premium” version of which featured a totally unnecessary, but stunning 4K display. It also had a new take on the smartwatch, the unfortunately named Wena, which pairs a Citizen-designed watch face with a unique wrist strap that offers up subtle notifications and LED alerts.

Compact stereo systems might not get as much love as they used to, what with the ubiquity of all-in-one Bluetooth speakers, but Sony’s CAS-1 bucks the trend. Designed for hooking up directly to your PC via USB, the tiny CAS-1 actually contains two independent amplifiers and DACs based on the company’s high-end ES range: one for headphones and one for driving the included 62mm speakers. Don’t let its tiny size fool you: the CAS-1 was monstrously loud, and sounded phenomenal, even against the din of the IFA show floor. Release date and pricing is TBC.

Indeed, while everyone wonders whether they actually need a smartwatch, the world’s consumer electronics manufacturers continue to plug away at the concept. Motorola dropped its new Moto 360, which now comes in a smaller size for slender wrists, but still sports the “flat tire” look on its display. Samsung, after some seriously poor efforts in the past, unveiled the Gear S2, a circular smartwatch with a unique twisting bezel for navigating its homegrown Tizen OS. But there was still little answer to why the smartwatch is a compelling purchase, no killer app to justify their lofty price tags and poor battery life.

LTE is making a full-court press for the Internet of Things

By Stephen Lawson

While most people dream of ever faster LTE, a dedicated band of innovators is striving to make the latest and greatest cellular system more like 2G.

That’s the goal of companies working on special versions of LTE that run slower but are cheaper and use up less space and power. Those advantages are tailor made for the Internet of Things, but other kinds of networks offer similar benefits.

Next week at CTIA Super Mobility Week in Las Vegas, communications chip maker Sequans will join with network giant Ericsson to demonstrate LTE Category 0, a variant of the global cell standard that Sequans expects to hit the market next year. It could go into connected devices like parking meters, credit-card terminals, oil tank sensors and even wearables. Meanwhile, another form of low-power LTE called Category 1 should ship in devices starting in the next couple of weeks, according to Sequans. On Monday, cellular vendor Gemalto announced a Category 1 module for mobile devices that Sequans says is built around its chip.
