Do you need to get up to speed quickly on the techlogies and services that could transform the wireless world over the coming decade? Whether you work directly with wireless or in a sector where wireless solutions could be beneficial (e.g. healthcare, transport, sensor networks, location and smart metering), this concise guide provides a critical insight into future developments. For the first time, you will have a clear view of all the key techlogies, including mesh networks, white space/cognitive devices, 4G/LTE and femtocells, and all the sectors or applications in which they could be used, with a comparison of the positives and negatives of each techlogy and sector area. You'll also see where the techlogies required overlap and so could bring benefits across multiple areas, as well as how the key drivers of change in the past may impact on the future.
