Towards a Wireless Connected World: Achievements and New Technologies
To be Published by Springer Nature
While the deep impact of the Internet was realized even in the past decades, during COVID-19 pandemic period, its utility has been realized even more meaningfully. During the lockdown phases and due to taking their own precautionary measures, millions of Internet users preferred staying at home and doing whatever possible to do via online mode. Perhaps, for similar future cases (if any, again), same mode of communication would be very crucial. We have experienced academic institutions, regular corporate offices, businesses, political meetings, and even judicial proceedings running online. For many of these activities, people often use wired connection to get Internet services; however, it has been experienced in many places that when the wired connection fails, a more reliable form of connection could be achieved via the wireless technology. Also, it gives more flexibility to stay connected with the Internet when the users are on the move. For instance, the mobile phone’s data services can be turned on and a smartphone can be made a hot-spot to connect a computer to the Internet – all via the wireless technology. During online exams, for better reliability, some students can use this method to get uninterrupted Internet connectivity.
In some parts of the globe, regular electricity supply is a problem and often the Internet connection gets cut when power failure occurs. Wireless Internet via smartphones can solve the problem in this case. Many students could attend the online classes, businessmen can attend meetings or listen or watch important briefings while traveling via bus or vehicles and still remain connected to the Internet via wireless communication. Same experience is learnt from the journalists who may use mobile data for their job related tasks for interacting with people when covering some events outside. This is what we call as the Wireless Internet, which could be facilitated via Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN), Cellular network and Satellite communications technologies. To enhance the coverage and service features of the Wireless Internet, many works have been done from various angles on various wireless technologies. The challenges that remain in this field are still manifold.
The objective of this book is to collate the significant contributions in the fields related to Wireless Internet technologies. We expect the contributors from academia, industry and regular research labs would report their impactful solutions, trends and technologies that would make the Wireless Internet (in general, wireless connectivity for distance communication) more reliable and secure for the coming years.
