It’s the alarm in my smartphone that helps me wake up every morning. Then it’s time to read my work e-mails and send responses. A newspaper is the other thing that one tends to read at this time of the day, but who needs a physical newspaper when you can install a news app on your smartphone and be up to date with everything that’s happening around the globe. After getting dressed up, it’s time for breakfast and to discuss the day's activity with an onshore client over an Instant Messaging application.
Everyone wants to be a part of a connected world. The LTE wireless technology provides the means to be connected anywhere, and to continuously improvise on it. Apart from meeting the high data rate/low latency demands, LTE works on many public safety aspects to be chosen as the standard to be used in many applications, which helps in ensuring the safety of mankind.
With LTE-Advanced telecommunication systems now beginning to be deployed, the focus has moved towards research and development of the fifth-generation telecommunication technology and services. The new fifth generation, better known as 5G technology for cellular systems, will probably reach execution stage, and be ready for deployment around 2020 or later. Future human society and economy will strongly rely on 5G infrastructure, and the impact will go far beyond existing wireless access networks with the aim for communication services, reachable everywhere, all the time, and faster. 5G technologies will be adopted and deployed globally in alignment with developed and emerging markets’ needs.
Code, eat, sleep, repeat! These four words work like magic on Aricentians passionate about coding, competing and above all, winning. They perfectly describe our annual 24-hour non-stop coding contest, #Hack100, which gained popularity in just two years. 11 and 12 March 2016 saw the second season of #Hack100 - bigger, better and more rewarding than last year.
Wireless Service Providers (WSP) have been extending wireless coverage for both Wi-Fi and LTE/3G/GSM/CDMA by using Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS). Using Wi-Fi for offloading data from LTE/3G networking is an attractive value proposition for WSPs. Typically DAS deployments have significant installation and maintenance cost and this cost sometimes is taken care by the carrier provider but in most cases the venue owner needs to bear this cost. In most cases this cost cannot be mapped to direct revenue and is considered as part of infrastructure cost.
If there was one thing that MWC 2016 Barcelona got excited about…it was the vision of the future that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg showed everyone. Imagine sharing a 360 degree view of your baby’s first smile! Imagine saving it to look at ages later. Images, videos are all fine, but if we can experience life’s precious moments in virtual reality…why not?! We will definitely buy one of those!
