Current Trends in Telecommunication
The electronic exchange of information across distances in various forms is what telecommunications entail. There are various trends that have happened and are currently happening in this industry that have a direct impact on the way that companies operate.
The telecommunications industry is the biggest one in absolute size within the overall general IT industry, however, it only contributes around 15% of the total growth of this industry. On the other hand, the fastest growing segments of the sub-industries in IT are internet publishing, data processing, as well as other types of information services. In the last couple of years, the IT industry in general has been dominated by software as a service companies (SaaS companies). Companies have been investing in legacy technologies for a while now, such as software, services, and capabilities, as well as hardware, however, all of them have been supported by the cloud. That means there’s going to be an even bigger investment in the coming years in cloud platforms, which includes social and mobile, as well as big data analytics, which has become essential in the operation of many companies. In fact, without cloud platforms, plenty of companies would longer be able to operate at all, because they are so dependent on them, as well as because of the fact that individual tools and platforms that companies can purchase have been going out of style.
It’s been nearly two years now since the first 5G major event, at the Super Bowl. The term stands for the fifth generation, which is the most recent in mobile networks, which is a brand new global wireless standard but is not going to be the final generation of innovation in this field. This industry trend is going to continue to be applied globally and push wireless speeds to new heights because of its capabilities. Many telecom giants have already started implementing their brand new wireless networks all over the globe. During a time when high-speed data transfer and communication have become more important than ever, this new global wireless standard is more than ready to match the expectations that many people have all over the globe. The network itself benefits from lower costs associated with connectivity, incredibly high speeds, and lower latency, all of which can boost a number of different industries, such as retail, healthcare, mobility, and many others. As more and more companies have started to roll out infrastructures and devices that are fully capable to handle 5G, it’s safe to say that this type of high-speed and efficient connectivity is an essential for businesses everywhere. Although 5G has just begun implementation, many telecom companies have already started working on 6G, which is expected to be able to bridge physical, digital, and human roles by employing high-frequency terahertz airwaves.
