Today, some six billion people use mobile devices and consume mobile data wherever they are. New wireless services and applications are the catalyst for exponential growth in mobile data traffic volumes. The transmission of data, image and video can be of massive support to police, fire and emergency medical services and are used in mobile backhaul on trains, for in-car communication, for the control, maintenance, and security of industrial estates.
Data applications are bandwidth-hungry and for tailored applications, the availability of enough bandwidth at the right moment is crucial. Whatever the technology - 4G or 5G, LTE, or Wi-Fi - future applications are likely to demand even more bandwidth.
