Technology as we know it has come a long way from the days of Sir Graham Bell’s photophone, through Michael Faraday’s theory of Electromagnetic waves. There has been a tremendous advance in technology from that period when the only wireless communication was the radio, used by high-level scientists for communications through space (they still use this), up until now when every teenager and even children know how to use Bluetooth.
What Is Wireless Technology and Where Is it Used?
Wireless technology is technology that allows users to transfer data from one device to another without any cable. As stated above, wireless communication through radio has lasted for years, and still is the most commonly used wireless communication mode.
The terms “wireless” and “radio” have been used interchangeably for long. They can actually mean the very same thing, depending on your location. The “wireless” term was used by the British, and the “radio” term was used by the Americans.
We will attempt to predict the future of wireless communication as observed by the trends. But before we delve into this, let us first get to know what types of devices use this communication method:
- Wireless Networks (WLAN), which are used mostly by computer interface devices
- Cellular devices and networks (Wi-Fi hotspots are very common here)
- Medical Technologies and wireless Hospital Systems
- Wireless energy transfer
What Is the Future of Wireless Technology?
Hence, having known all the above, we can now go ahead and ask ourselves: “What’s the future of wireless technology? Have we as the humanity reached the end of wireless technology? Is wireless technology promising? Can we do better?”
Clearly, wireless technology has a bright future, even though it is such an old trade. It keeps evolving, growing and surprising us at every turn. We should embrace it and use it for the good of all humanity.
There are some providers who offer managed wireless services, which allow you to predict and control your wireless costs.
Entrepreneurs, banks, hospitals and tech-geeks are discovering ways to conquer the current speed of the wireless network and are working on the brink of discovering some ground breaking internet speeds which have been unparalleled. Their use of the current wireless technology as is, is getting low and cloud-based apps, category 6A cables, 4G LTEs, the new 802.11ac technologies are being adopted.
Companies and people in general need to employ strategies geared towards this new wave of wireless technologies, which are proving more secure, time efficient, can carry large data and generally more convenient for people and machines to use.
The future is already here; we need to embrace it and fasten our seat belts for this fascinating ride of wireless technology.
