More connectivity with digital infrastructure

Thema:
Fast open infrastructures

The Netherlands is among the world's leaders when it comes to our digital infrastructure. But there is still a lot of inefficiency. Various parties are creating their own closed networks and platforms for different applications. That is why we are working on technologies to connect existing networks and platforms and to make them flexible.

During the Corona pandemic, we already experienced the importance of digital infrastructure for online education and working from home. In future, the bar for digital infrastructure will be raised ever higher. In addition to more capacity and speed, more reliability, security, sovereignty, and sustainability will be needed. Standards and open systems contribute to freedom of choice for users, providers, and suppliers.

5G and Social XR

One example of what we are working on is the development of 5G, which will enable numerous new applications and services such as self-driving cars. With Social XR, we are bringing people together in a lifelike way, even if they are in different locations. Our work contributes to a digital infrastructure that can also support these kinds of applications efficiently and on a large scale.

More opportunities and sustainability

We believe it is important that users and providers are given more opportunities to actually use European digital infrastructure and services. For this purpose, we contribute to standardisation and open-source initiatives. We also want to ensure that our work contributes to the sustainability of digital infrastructure and its use.
