New tech in wireless communication & the growth of ubiquitous radio

Availability of a ubiquitous high capacity radio that can provide sharing of data anywhere and anytime for anyone and anything is one of five key technology trends for the future listed by Ericsson’s CTO Erik Ekudden. In other words, wireless access is no longer just for people. In fact, wireless access will provide connectivity for any kind of device that may benefit from being connected. It should also be available anywhere, in the office, at home, on the street, in the forest…the list is almost endless.
