The evolution of mobile technology

In the world today, mobile experiences are expanding

Technical achievements have played a big role in the expansion of mobile experiences. Connectivity has become the foundation of a great mobile experience hence we can now connect on the go, connect fast, connect reliably, and connect real time. All these experiences have been powered by the evolving mobile technologies.

Mobile wireless technology is a system used by cellular telephone manufacturers and service providers to classify wireless communication into several generations. Each generation is characterized by new frequency bands, higher data rates and non–backward compatible transmission technology.

In recent past mobile wireless technologies have undergone technology evolution from zero generation (0G) to First Generation (1G), Second Generation (2G), Third Generation (3G) and now the Fourth Generation (4G) which is being deployed with the aim of Quality of Service (QoS), efficiency and performance. Mobile wireless technology has however reached to 4G and soon we will be looking at embracing the 5G of technology as our next logical step and the future!

Wi-Fi Speeds for 4G have been further increased to keep up with data access demand used by various services. High definition streaming is now supported in 4G. New phones with HD capabilities surface. It gets pretty cool. In 4G, Portability is increased further. Worldwide roaming is not a distant dream.

Currently, there is no 5G technology deployed. When this becomes available it will provide very high speeds to the consumers. It would also provide efficient use of available bandwidth.

Mobile communications are clearly going to show major enhancements in terms of capabilities of mobile networks. The next generation of wireless services, besides improving the overall capacity, will create its own unique demands in terms of localization, personalization, etc., which will in turn, drive the development and continuous evolution of services and infrastructure.

While technologies continue to establish themselves in the business world, research is already progressing towards the next generation of communication services. The future mobile communications systems are expected to provide a wide variety of services, from high-quality voice to high definition video, through high-data-rate wireless channels anywhere in the world.

Future generations of mobile communications will talk about multimedia communications, wireless access to broadband fixed networks, and seamless roaming among different systems. That is why, we at Viscar offer the GSM, GPRS, EDGE & UMTS Course which is a fundamental course that covers all aspects of 3G operation from the radio air interface through to the core network including planning and optimization.

This course would suit engineers who need to add to their existing knowledge on the subject and those who have GSM experience but completely new to this technology. It covers the next evolutionary step for 3G networks, High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) and Long Term Evolution (LTE).

The objectives of the course are to present fundamental concepts of 3G technologies that will enable senior managers and other staff members to make informed decisions about their 3G deployments and understand regulatory policy framework. To introduce the fundamentals of 3G to give attendees a broad grasp of the key engineering, commercial and regulatory principles. If you wish to register for this course Click here
