The Internet we use today is undergoing a massive evolution — bringing about far more change in the next few years than in the last ten. The Next Generation of the Internet, or NGi, will make today’s Internet seem primitive! Many parts of the NGi are here already. Everyone doesn’t have it yet but millions do. There is no arrival date but each day we get a step closer. Not only will the Next Generation Internet be orders of magnitude faster but it will also be Always on, Everywhere, Natural, Intelligent, Easy, and Trusted. The impact of these characteristics on organizations of all kinds will be dramatic. Many people expect or hope that the NGi is going to bring us incredible speed for surfing the web. Speed is in fact one of the characteristics of the NGi but all seven characteristics are profoundly important.
