By Education Technology Insights | Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Wireless trends are spreading like wildfire in the market, and it is mandatory for the education providers and leaders to be aware of these advancing trends for the next generation.

FREMONT, CA: Nowadays, wireless technology is widely used in all the industries streamlining the work process. It has now become one of the largest carriers of digital data all over the world. As the demand for these technologies is growing day by day, so it is expected to progress more in the coming years.

Technologies are blooming in ed-tech industry. The growing next generation that is fast becoming independent, wire-free, and tech-savvy demands the best networks – be it to interact with each other or study. When it comes to an educational institution with spread facilities, providing the best network connectivity is the norm in this century. The growing wireless technology also affects the students, helping them grow. Here are some wireless trends influencing the educational systems around the world…

1.Wi-Fi

Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) is a type of wireless network technology that allows devices such as computers, mobile devices, and other equipment to interface with the Internet. A wireless router enables Wi-Fi-compatible devices to interface with the Internet. Wi-Fi will become the primary high-performance networking technology for homes and offices through 2024.

2.Millimetre-wave wireless

Millimeter-wave technology is less expensive and more comfortable to deploy, making it a candidate for many wireless connections, including backhaul, personal area networks, LANs and even mobile devices. This technology operates at frequencies in the range of 30 to 300 gigahertz.

3. Low-power wide-area (LPWA) networks 

Low-power WAN (LPWAN), a type of wireless WAN, interconnects low-bandwidth, battery-powered devices with low bit rates over long ranges. It emerged in 2013 as a class of wireless technologies. Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), Long Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M), LoRa and Sigfox are included in LPWA technologies.

4.5G cellular system

Fifth-generation wireless (5G) is the latest iteration of mobile technology. It increases the speed and responsiveness of wireless networks. As 5G is cost-effective for high-speed data networking, so in coming years it may supplement Wi-Fi.

5.Smart Campus

Education providers are trying to adopt the concept of smart class for the universities. A smart campus creates an environment which will allow humans and technology-enabled systems to interact. Students will find it more attractive and it will provide automated experiences for university’s stakeholders.

6.Software-defined radio (SDR)

Software-defined radio (SDR) is a radio communication system where components are implemented using the software on a personal computer. It enables the receiver to support more frequencies and protocols. 

There are several advantages of wireless networks:

• Flexibility: Wireless technology will lead the workers to a new trend of working, where no need to stick to a place to work. Employees will get a flexible atmosphere to work, either from home or any other convenient location.

• Cost-saving: Comparatively wireless network is cost-saving because it can be installed easily at cheap cost.

• High efficiency: Wireless network allows sharing information and data quickly at a very high speed.

• Access and availability: It will help the user to access their data quickly, no matter of the place or surrounding. It can be accessible even without wires and adaptors.

• Increase scalability: Wireless systems can improve scalability. It can correctly configure to meet the needs of specific applications, depending on the user’s need. 

• Installation speed: Installing a wireless network system takes less time compared to the other traditional methods. It is time-saving and comfortable too.
