Mobile Phone Technologies and UMTS and GSM Comparison
10 pages in length. Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and Universal Mobile Telephone Service (UMTS) represent the future in mobile phone technology. The extent to which each entity has enhanced the entire wireless communication industry has been so significant that upgrades are already in the works to improve upon them even more. By April of 2001, five hundred million people around the world were GSM users; its counterpart, UMTS, boasts a third-generation (3G) mobile system in development within the ITU's IMT-2000 framework, which will ultimately enable the reality of portable videophones via its 2 Mbps data speeds. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
Wireless Communications and Satellites
A 10 page research paper discussing the increasing use of satellite technology in the wireless communication industry. This paper discusses a description of the subject matter, the current state of technology in this field, and then presents the advantages, disadvantages and present and future trends in the use of satellites in wireless communications systems. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
Parallel Computing and its Evolution
An 11 page paper discussing the evolution of parallel computing. The path of the quest for workable parallel computing configurations is littered with far more failures than successes. Despite the failures of the past, the concept of parallel computing remains one worth pursuing and in fact represents the next logical step in the evolution of computing in general. The paper begins with Gene Amdahl in 1955, progresses through the trial and error of the 1960s and 1970s, and relays many of the successes and strides of the 1980s and 1990s. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
