Ever since mankind first harnessed radio waves a century ago, the spectrum of radio frequencies from 3 Hz to 3 GHz has been exploited for a variety of applications. Interestingly, waves between 20 Hz to 20 KHz are audible to humans, with the best sensitivity in the range 1 KHz to 4 KHz.
Today we enjoy the benefits of on-the-go mobile data thanks to 4G wireless technology. 4G comes equipped with an alphabet soup of features like multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), further enhanced intercell interference coordination (FeICIC), co-ordinated multipoint (CoMP), beamforming, enhanced multimedia broadcast multicast system (eMBMS), license assisted access (LAA), higher order modulation with 256QAM, carrier aggregation (CA), dual connectivity (DC) and many more all supported in frequency and time division duplex (FDD and TDD) bands.
Earlier this month, we joined hundreds of tech enthusiasts at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, the world's largest annual exhibition for the mobile industry. As always, the event featured top mobile operators, manufacturers, technology providers and vendors.
