Wireless Industry Challenges We Address
The wireless industry continues to undergo rapid change on all fronts, from the growing expanse of heterogeneous networks, to the vast array of connected devices, to the endless barrage of mobile applications and digital content – especially video – consumed by users who want information and entertainment anytime, anywhere. While most of us think about being “connected” in terms of computers, tablets and smartphones, the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) market is creating a world where almost anything can be connected to the wireless internet.
Although the opportunities associated with pervasive connectivity are plenty, so are the challenges:
- Complexity, congestion and spectrum scarcity plague wireless networks, making mobile data access inconsistent, unreliable and expensive for consumers and businesses.
- Mobile Network Operators are being marginalized by over-the-top applications, social networks and Wi-Fi providers as they struggle to differentiate while facing tremendous price pressure.
- Enterprises face increasing pressure to mobilize workforces, operations and customer engagement, but lack the expertise and technologies needed to leverage mobile securely and cost-effectively.
- Consumers - frustrated by complicated, slow and restrictive access to wireless data services – seek simpler, more personalized mobile experiences.
