Looking back at 2017 in U.S. Telecom

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Feb 15, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  We are well into the second month in a brand new year and I have started to fervently check off new year’s list of things to accomplish; so far I think I’m doing a decent job. Now, what I also want to look back and review from last year is the tech-trend. Having always been amazed by how technology evolves and advances every passing day ( especially so in the wireless macrocosm), I wanted to check back on what technology promised us last year and look back on which ones actually made it to reality!

The call drops we all dread about

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Feb 1, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  Amidst the intense debates over Net Neutrality, the long-prevalent problem of call drops in mobile networks is still a new burning subject for many people. Whether you’re taking or making a call, if it is interrupted before either party decides to end the call, it is known as the infamous call drop. The real culprit for the dropped calls may either be in the Macro or the Micro network, or both, but without the shadow of a doubt, it affects directly on the network quality perception of the carrier, and the build quality perception of the building. Not only are they annoying and frustrating, calls drops are also more worrying than blocked calls as they don’t get in the queue to re-establish a connection. The drop call rates are often used as one of the essential figures of merit to measure the quality of service in the mobile wireless networks. Read More

Enterprise-grade Wi-Fi puts your efficiency in the spotlight

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Jan 25, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  Let’s get this one straight. If you need to cross the Atlantic pond and get to the other end, you can’t do it in a single-engine aircraft. Those are best suited for recreational and private use. Similarly, if you own an organization but attempt to run it on a residential grade Wi-Fi, you’re bound to experience similar things as you would at home - low on energy, low on productivity, and high on distractions.

What's new in the Public Safety Connectivity realm?

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Jan 11, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  Dropped calls and feeble data connections are modern day nuisances, but for public safety officers, it could very well be a matter of life and death. Every mobile connection, conversation, and video transmission counts when public safety is at stake. For this reason, the providers of dedicated public safety wireless communication networks aim to build a private system for public safety communications through full build-outs. Twenty-nine states have decided to opt-in to FirstNet and AT&T build-out plans that are to be submitted to each state. Read More

The loss of Net Neutrality

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Dec 14, 2017 2:00:00 PM
Net Neutrality, the principle that says the Internet Service Providers should treat all content equally and not give preferences to select digital content providers, has been lost. In layman terms, Net Neutrality simply means the consumer can load every website, video, app, gif, or any content on the internet evenly, regardless of where it is hosted. For instance, an Internet Service Provider (ISP) may not charge additional dollars for sites that stream movies or promote a specific agenda. This is also quite literally referred to as the ‘Open Internet’. Read More
