Wireless communications are one of the better domains of technology development of our time. This progress is being driven by the shift of what has been largely a medium for supporting voice telephony into a medium for supporting other services. The demand for new wireless capacity is growing at a quick pace. In the present day, the wireless communication system has become an important part of different types of wireless communication devices, which permit the user to communicate even from remote operated areas. There are many devices used for wireless communication like mobiles, Cordless telephones, GPS, Wi-Fi, satellite television and wireless computer parts. Current wireless phones include 3G and 4G networks, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technologies.
Let’s see how the following emerging communication technologies are going to make the communication systems better and efficient to use:
5G Enables High-Speed Internet for Masses
The 5G cellular technology is upon us, we might see 5G get adapted in major cities by the end of 2019 or at the beginning of next year. The technology supposed to compliment Wi-Fi as the speed of the internet is going to improve by the introduction of 5G. The speed is not the only thing that 5G is going to provide as its prices are going to be economical. The evolution of 5G will help in setting high-speed internet services for individuals and organizations on the Internet of Things and low latency applications.
Vehicle-to-Everything Wireless (V2X) Compulsory in Future for All Vehicles
V2X wireless system will allow normal and autonomous cars to communicate with each other and with the infrastructure on the route. This new technology will help in gathering and exchanging information related to safety, navigation, and infotainment. With the development of self-driven cars catching up the speed we might see V2X be made compulsory in the future for all the vehicles. But, this system needs hi-speed internet service to work.
Long Range Wireless Power to Replace Power Cables
The long-range wireless power someday in the future going to replace the power cables from electronic appliances like computers, mobiles, and gadgets used in the kitchen. But, the initial wireless power systems were not that successful in providing the experience that the users expected. The information that is available combined with current technology will help to redesign the communication system that will fit into living spaces. Previously, the device needed to be kept in a certain place, which is a slight improvement on the cable charging devices.
Low Power Wide Area Networks Provide Long-range Wireless Connectivity
Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology come up as a phrase in 2013 not as a new technology standard, but rather as a category of wireless technologies that are well suited to the specific needs of machine-to-machine and IoT devices. Most of IoT devices, especially those in cities and industrial sectors, don’t require the same speed and bandwidth of consumer cellular devices. LPWA Network (LPWAN) technologies enhance the business case for IoT solutions, offering a cost and power-efficient wireless option that leverages existing networks, global reach, and strong built-in security.
Wireless Sensing Enforce Effective Communication
A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) can be specified as a network of devices that can communicate the information gathered from a monitored field through wireless links. The data is moved forward through different nodes and with a gateway, the data is connected to other networks like wireless Ethernet. WSN is a wireless network that includes base stations and numbers of nodes (wireless sensors). Networks are used to monitor physical or environmental conditions like sound, pressure, temperature and co-operatively pass data through the network to the main location.
Enhanced Wireless Location Tracking is Precise
Wireless communication systems are used to sense the locations of the devices connected to them. The highly accurate tracking system can precisely locate the device up to one meter. The data generated from the device can be used in different business areas like marketing, channel management and the Internet of Things.
Millimetre-Wave Wireless Provide High Speed at Lower Frequency
The improvement in technologies over the past decade has allowed the widespread use of millimeter-wave to address the challenges of lower frequency and high-speed communications. The evolution of network technologies from 1G to 5G has taken almost five decades from 1G in the 1980s to 5G in the 2020s. The possibility of achieving data rates of up to 10 gigabits per second, where the data rates are restricted to less than 1 gigabit per second in microwave frequencies has increased. The application of millimeter waves to automotive radar solutions, high-speed point-to-point communication, streaming high-resolution videos, and carry large amounts of data.
Backscatter Networking Leveraging Existing RF Signal Resources
Backscatter communication technology has been introduced recently. It is becoming a go-to choice for self-sustainable communication systems as an external power supply or a dedicated carrier emitter is not required. By using existing RF signal resources, backscatter technology can support sustainable and independent communications and consequently open up a whole new set of applications that facilitate Internet-of-Things.
Software-Defined Radio making it Assessable for All
Software-defined radio is an RF communication system that incorporates a significant amount of this software-based signal-processing functionality. It is a concept according to which RF communication is achieved by using software to perform signal-processing tasks that are typically performed by hardware. This communication system provides a vehicle for carefully analyzing RF signals and experimenting with modulation and decoding techniques. It also makes custom RF communication systems more accessible to those who have limited experience with RF design.
Wi-Fi 6 More Reliable with Speed
Wi-Fi 6 will ultimately enhance the experience for all wireless users, from office workers, who will find that their devices communicate more securely and quickly in crowded offices, to people supporting constellations of IoT devices. Customers will find that they can pack more low-power devices into a space with fewer access points.
Wireless communications globally are something that people can expect as technology advances. Wireless communications have a lot of benefits and can make the world a lot more efficient. It does have concerns though as with every other new advancement that is made in today’s world. The difficulties with security regarding access to a person’s personal information or the negative impact that it may seem to have on society are a few things that are keeping back the progress that wireless technology could be making.
