On Sept. 9, the National Information Society Agency (NIA) announced its "K-ICT Hyper-Connected Intelligent Network Strategy" at an open forum as a core strategy in the network field to bring the realization of the "creative economy" closer.
The new network strategy came after those for super-high speed information and communications networks and broadband convergence networks, with the aim of building top-class hyper-connected intelligent networks by 2020.
Specifically, it is aimed at continually sophisticating networks, leading the intellectualization of networks, making networks trustworthy, expanding hyper-connected intelligent networks, and creating infrastructure to grow the network industry.
The NIA expects that once hyper-connected intelligent networks are built nationwide, it will be possible to download a UHD movie within 3 minutes through wired and wireless gigabit-level networks that are up to 100 times faster than current ones.
In addition, the agency anticipates that it will be able to provide various types of services related to healthcare, financial technology, and smart factories, and to prepare for security threats using software-based network technology.
