Wireless & Cellular

‘The nation that secures control of the air will ultimately control the world’.
Alexander Graham Bell– creator of the world’s first wireless telephone communication

In terms of global standardization, the 19th century telecom genius had it absolutely right as far as control of the world was concerned. Today almost 90% of all the approximately 6 billion mobile phone voice users across the world are under the control of one unified wireless standard; GSM.  From cell phones to the wireless (cable free) corporate networks that give a maximum of reliability and need minimum of maintenance, to the satellite run Google earth, that gives you visibility of any location on earth from the comfort of your living rooms, wireless technology continues to change the 21st century living, unabated!

Today’s most dominant wireless technology in the world, GSM, continues to keep itself two steps ahead of the market by upgrading its network to offer more and more. The 2nd generation voice (2G) was augmented by high speed data capability in the network through (2.5G) GPRS and EDGE and then the (3G) WCDMA and HSPA. While the HSPA is still being rolled out, it has come up with a (4G) HSPA+ to keep up with the likes of high speed wireless platform like LTE! The GSM operator needs to rapidly assess the business and network planning for the upgrades and migration if it is to retain and acquire more customers through high speed VAS. With the social networking and other applications such as M-Health, M-Commerce demands on the up and at a break neck pace, the pressure to migrate to the highest speed available should be tackled while it is still in the ‘strategic’ domain rather than when it falls in the ‘necessity’ domain. The best available expertise need to be mustered up to ensure the fastest network and marketing roll outs. If ever a first mover advantage was imperative with a service launch, it is with this.

Wireless offers the modern day corporate a much more efficient and reliable working; broadband connectivity across the office through WiFi, secure data communications within the office and its distant hubs through Wireless LANs, cordless phones all allow the office to bring in improved top and bottom lines.  Wireless technology continues to churn out better and better solutions for the corporate. Be it an extremely fast 4G data service through HSPA+ or LTE platform or a complete wireless solution through a convergence of LTE, HSPA+, bluetooth, WiFi, wireless technology should be an important cog in your corporate’s strategic plan; a plan that not only gives reliability and security but also reduces your annual operations and maintenance costs dramatically, thereby increasing your profitability.

Other wireless technologies with lucrative business models during this decade will include ‘smart home’ WiFi and wireless networks, Digital Satellite and terrestial television broadcast networks,  data and broadband systems such as WiFi, WiLAN, WIMAX and EV-DO, GPS networks and units and radio receivers.
