Forty years ago, in April 1973, he was made the first call on a portable cell phone. Martin Cooper (Martin Cooper) from the communications division of Motorola called his rival of Bell Labs, thus opening a new era. For this he used a prototype of a mobile phone the size of a brick, vesivshim about a kilogram and stoivshim almost $ 4,000.
Reflections on the first mobile phone to help understand to what level can go up mobile communications in the future. In just four decades, cell phones are no longer clumsy devices for moneybags, becoming an essential attribute of everyday life.
Today, people of all ages use mobile phones and other mobile devices for personal and business communication, listening to music and watching videos, for work in social networks, the acquisition of goods and services, paying bills, banking, finding optimal routes and more. But that’s not all. With the development of mobile devices people expect them to ever higher levels of personalization services. They want to work on their service conditions and maintain a high level of information safety.
By themselves, the devices can not meet the growing expectations of customers. To reach a new level of mobility, it is necessary to ensure close interaction between mobile devices and networks that are deployed on the premises. Such interaction should constantly improve and become more intelligent, to keep pace with the miniaturization and intellectualization connected devices.
Meanwhile, we are witnessing is born Comprehensive Internet that are connected to each other people, processes, data, and inanimate objects, and ensure interaction between them. As a result, the Internet will become as vital as electricity and water. The intelligent network will make the connection more valuable, personalized and relevant.
Intelligent networking features not only show the organizations list of connected objects, but also indicate the type and cause of each connection, as well as give information on what actions have been taken together with these connections. Smart features ensure secure delivery of the right information to the right or to the recipient at the right time. In the context of the exponential growth of data network information should help the mobile users to receive necessary and useful data by pressing one or two buttons on the mobile device. As a result, the user experience should far exceed what is available to us today.
For example, to obtain data on the location of the user and his activities in the network in real time, the retailer may examine the situation on the trading floor to the nearest minute and use the context (knowledge of the location of the mobile user) to enable local services and providing customers a useful, correct them information (unless, of course, they expressed their willingness to receive it in Safe Mode). Thus, customers will receive timely personalized services, and sellers learn new ways of studying customers interact with it and increase profits.
There is no doubt that tomorrow, network devices become more compact, inexpensive, flexible and specialized. But the main condition for realizing the potential of mobile technology has been and remains the network.
