We are the last global eco-system which still advances its entire technology family in generations, having started as a 1G-niche and now entering the transformational era of 5G. The typical 10-years innovation cycles between generations, the 'Gs', worked well in the past but are unfortunately not adequate for the future. Based on some past trends, the aim of this paper is to develop a technology and innovation roadmap for the mobile ecosystem. Notably, required technology disruptions to the cellular infrastructure are discussed as well as much-needed changes in the overall innovation landscape suggested, which would enable a massive shift from selling the cost of connectivity to co-creating value in ubiquitous connectivity.
