For many reasons, 2010s was the best decade for tech and telecom industry. It was the decade that redefined the consumer tech and pioneered many innovations that will define the future tech industry.
Many mobility platforms like iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Firefox OS either flourished or vanished during this decade. Mobile data networks like LTE evolved to their peak during this time. Foundation for future tech like 5G was laid during the same time. We saw amazing tech innovations in last 10 years such as iPad, Amazon Alexa, Nexus, Pixel Phones, Oculus VR, iPhone X and the list goes on… Social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat gained massive user base as a result of this tech revolution. Many cloud services such as AWS, Azure also got better and it has also paved a way for techs such as AI, AR, VR like never before. Streaming services such as Netflix, Disney+, Hotstar and YouTube (never forget it!) have witnessed a record number of users in last few years.
This huge progress is commendable in the entire human history. The world has never been this connected and virtually close ever before. It’s indeed the best time to be alive! While it’s hard to predict what tech we will see in 2020s, we can foresee an unparalleled era of AI, cloud computing and IoT and 5G as their enabler.
As already discussed, 5G network evolution will gain its momentum in early 2020s with wider commercial launches by 2024. In a nutshell, 2020s are going to be exciting for tech entrepreneurs and enthusiasts. We at Towards5G are here to track and analyse every little progress in this industry (telecom + tech) for 2020 and so on…
