One of the most revolutionary technological advancements in the 21st century is the smartphone. It has changed how we communicate, navigate, interact, and entertain ourselves. Our smartphone is the alarm clock that wakes us in the morning. We read the news on our tablets while eating breakfast. We navigate to places, monitor the weather, check email, and book a new flight when stranded at the airport using our mobile phones. In a car, on a train, up a mountain or at a beach, we can access information and remotely control many of the other wireless devices we use.
Everything is Becoming Wireless
From our homes to our cars to our own well-being, wireless technologies are ubiquitous. Smartphones and tablets with access to millions of custom applications allow us to control and monitor the world in which we live. LitePoint® technology is used by the world’s leading device makers to verify and calibrate the world’s most popular wireless technologies and our close partnership with top chipset companies enables us to continue to develop solutions for new technologies…even before you’re ready to implement them. Wireless technologies in mobile devices today:
- 2G/3G/4G/LTE – The most ubiquitous cellular technologies that enable mobile connectivity from almost anywhere on the globe
- Wi-Fi – Streaming TV, movies or live sports video over a wireless network turns a smartphone or tablet into a mobile mini entertainment center
