Mobile and fixed wireless connectivity products support our daily lives in so many ways that we have become accustomed to network access and communication wherever we go. With this dramatic rise in network availability, speed and accessibility over the last three decades, we are now disappointed when Wi-Fi® networks are not available in every public venue. We are troubled by dropped calls in remote areas. We expect flawless GPS navigation in our vehicles. We connect to high-definition video chats from our smartphones, homes and offices. We imagine that we will be able to locate the people and assets that are important to us and monitor their health and condition at all hours in the not-too-distant future.
The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and a general demand for pervasive connectivity to mobile applications and digital services have mandated the deployment of faster wireless networks, in more places, at short range and over long distances, with greater security characteristics and 100% uptime.
