Wireless Systems Beyond 3G

  • Asrar U. H. Sheikh


With 3G revolution unfolding, the hottest question being asked at present is what lies beyond 3G. It is always difficult to make predictions on future events because these can turn out to be embarrassing wrong as happened many times in the past to several giants among the members of the scientific community. To forecast on the development of future events on scientific grounds, it is required that the history of the past events be examined. We can examine the past and the current status of wireless systems and try to establish the direction or the trend in which this rapidly changing technology will follow. If forecast on the trend is reasonably accurate then it is possible to open a window through which one can future events unfolding.
