Example of Pre-competitive Research
There is a lot of competition in the mobile phone market. All the companies are working on the next generation of mobile phones to better serve the customer needs as compared to their competitors. However, pre-competitive research areas include network architecture, connectivity of the future internet, and energy efficient communication to make interconnectivity amongst different vendors more reliable and efficient. Research with pre-competitive nature is far from the market, and will benefit and create new business opportunities for the telecommunications sector as a whole.
