Wireless: the Next Generation

The telecom industry is working on the next generation of wireless technologies that will offer users the “perception of infinite capacity.” New networks will not only be “super fast” but also “green and soft”, meaning much less energy-hungry and entirely controlled by software. As with computer systems before them, much of a network’s specialized hardware, such as the processor units that sit alongside each cell tower, will become “virtualized”—that is, it will be replaced with software, making it far easier to reconfigure. 

Wireless networks will become a bit like computing in the online “cloud”
