GISFI has outlined future technologies in areas mentioned below to be pursued for defining the standards for India. Thereafter, GISFI will propose these standards to the international standardization bodies.

The areas of future technologies:


Spectrum may appear to be quite in abundance, in practical terms it is extremely limited because of availability of technologies,propagational and operational constraints and enormous requirements for variety of applications. Wireless is being used so predominantly,
now a days, that there is hardly any walk of life, which does not use radiocommunication in one form or the other. It includes maritime,aeronautical, broadcasting, transport, oil & electricity sectors,public utility services, health & environment, public telecommunication services, internet, e-commerce, and so on and so forth. To cater for the gigantic demand on the spectrum, the world-over, it is essential that the spectrum be used efficiently,economically, rationally and optimally.

The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a worldwide network of intercommunicating devices. It integrates the ubiquitous communications, pervasive computing, and ambient intelligence. At this point (IoT) must be seen as a vision where "things", especially everyday objects, such as nearly all home appliances but also furniture, clothes, vehicles, roads and smart materials, and more, are readable, recognisable, locatable,  addressable and/or controllable via the Internet.....

Convergence in network technologies, services and in terminal equipment is at the basis of change in innovative offers and new business models in the communications sector. The utilization of the term “convergence” represents the shift from the traditional “vertical silos” architecture, i.e. a situation in which different services were provided through separate networks (mobile, fixed, CATV, IP), to a situation in which communication services will be accessed and used seamlessly across different networks and provided over multiple platforms, in an interactive way. ...

A key way to reduce carbon emissions and thus enable healthier life on the planet Earth is to introduce and more develop information and communication technologies to at least four proposed areas of human activity: smart grid, road transportation, smart buildings and travel substitution.

The idea of the smart grid is to provide real-time information to end-users, grid operators and distributed generators. In this way everybody can accomplish the tasks with minimized emissions for the benefit of all. This can be accomplished by changing the grid network from point-to-node to point-to-point with the connection between end-users, by process automation using smart ICT-meters, and by creating a real-time marketplace for energy consumption by enabling two-way communication between customers and suppliers. Road transportation efficiency improvement opportunities concern optimization of individual and commercial logistics. Smart buildings relate to design and technology, which would enable buildings with minimal, or even negative, energy consumption. This especially concerns buildings of public importance, such as hospitals and schools. Topic of travel substitution relates to savings in energy consumption due to flexible place of work and with the possibility for virtual meetings, which is already definitely possible for number of jobs, due to the certain existing level of development of ICT.

Of course, the highest importance is introduction of ICT resources to the topic of climate change. This can be performed via monitoring climate change, via mitigation of local effects of climate change, via concerted action against global warming and via ICT standardization in the field of climate change.

The ICT industry plays a significant role in setting an example for other industries and encouraging the adoption of ICT in all the proposed four areas, especially in the field of travel substitution and definitely by deepening its involvement in climate change. It can further drive development and penetration of new technologies by enhancing the user-experience and reducing costs.
