Fourth Generation Networks
The evolution of the cellular networks has undergone rapid changes because of the advancements in information technology that people never thought were possible. Over the past two decades, there have been technological advancements at unimaginable paces due to the growth in ideas and globalization. People from all over the world have been involved in growth of technology by competing with others to develop identical products that have seen favor in the eyes of the consumers and public. New products such as the touch screen mobile phones that were not in existence over the past decade are now en vogue with almost every individual in countries around the world owning one or planning to buy one creating a huge demand for such gadgets (Adibi et al, 34).
More mobile phones are being developed with enhanced speeds that can be able to stream videos at unimaginable speeds. This can be attributed to the development of new bandwidths such as the Third generation networks (3G) and the Fourth Generation (4G). The evolution of the 3G networks into the 4G network can be attributed to the advancements in technology that have aided in the development of new networks. As an individual, the use of electronic gadgets that rely on new generation networks for transmission of information such as mobile phones, laptops, personal computers, tablets and android mobile phones, has been fun and exhilarating. On is able to stream videos form the internet in an instant. In addition, you are able to send videos and other multimedia messages at fast and unimaginable speeds that have never been experienced before.
The fourth generation is exceptional as it provides the mobile users with exceptional and fast internet speeds. Business as well have been able to take advantage of the use of the new generation of networks that allows them to coordinate plans and strategies that are vital for the success of the business between different branches of a business some of which are thousands of miles apart. The new networks developed have enabled video conferencing by companies. This has the benefit of reducing costs such as traveling and other expenses that would have been used in traveling from one location to another for meetings. The use of teleconferencing enables people to communicate on a live basis while viewing each other on a screen maybe thousands of miles apart.
The fourth generation networks have opened up new businesses that were not in existence. Technological advancements have enabled development of new products that only use the fourth generation networks. Gadgets such as the screen sensitive phones and tablets have become a common scene in the public domain because of their high demand due to their high speeds and numerous entertainment capabilities (Makaya & Pierre, 22). Increased demand in products that use fourth generation networks has resulted in increased job opportunities.
Development of new networks might eventually lead to new technologies that are superior to the existent fourth generation networks. Moreover the fourth generation networks has been a source of revenue to governments due to increased usage of data and revenues for companies dealing in the business of selling data (Hey, Tansley& Tolle, 18). Thus with such revenues accrued to governments they are able to initiate development projects and further the growth of the networks into remote areas. Fourth generation networks have led to globalization of the world such that it is relatively easy to coordinate business and communicate with people around the world. Businesses have grown because of globalization such that it is relatively easy to coordinate and delegate duties within a global organization with presence in different parts of the world.
