Juniper Research unveils 2011 “Top Ten Wireless Predictions”


Juniper Research has unveiled their top 10 predictions for 2011. These are global insights so some of these will not be relevant yet to us Canadians – we take a bit longer to implement some new technologies – such as Mobile Lottery Tickets… this will be a long drawn out government process to get buy in. However, there are are a few certainties for Canada in 2011: Surging Mobile Data, Mobile Handset sensitivity and mobile banking will become more popular – you’ll see Zoompass (the Big 3 joint venture) come in your daily life more with the ability to pay by mobile.

Here’s the complete top 10:

1. Surging Mobile Data Traffic
2. Augmented Reality to Enhance Mobile Games and Retail
3. Cloud-Based Operating Systems are Launched
4. Mobile Banking will become a “must-have” when opening a new account
5. Mobile Devices Begin to Replace Credit Cards
6. Mobile Handsets Become Even More Sensitive
7. Mobile Lottery Tickets Sales to Soar Fuelled by Deployments in US, Europe, and China
8. Mobile-Specific Threats Lead to Demand for Mobile-Specific Security
9. Buyouts take Social Purchasing to a New Level
10. More Vendors Develop a “GreenHeart”
