In today’s world, mobile communication has woven itself seamlessly into the fabric of our lives. As technology advances at an unprecedented pace, we await exciting developments in blended mobile communication for commercial use.
Blended mobile connectivity combines satellite and cellular networks to provide fast, reliable coverage at all times. It offers a layered approach that ensures uninterrupted communication in any situation.
Blended mobile connectivity enables first responders, businesses and critical infrastructure to have reliable communications in crisis situations. When one channel fails, another takes over automatically without human intervention.
In this blog, we will discuss blended mobile communication trends to watch in 2024.
1. Private LTE Networks
Major oil and gas companies are investing in private LTE networks. This technology will allow them to connect various sites, including offshore rigs, using a private network that is more secure and reliable than traditional networks.
Benefits of using LTE include:
Quicker download speeds: 4G provides download speeds of up to 100 Mbps, leading to improved productivity and cost-cutting in organizations.
- Faster web browsing: 4G LTE enables faster data transfer, reducing latency and allowing for quicker webpage loading, data backup, and remote file access.
- High-quality video and live streaming: 4G’s real-time video feeds are used by businesses to monitor remote locations and facilitate video conferencing.
- Longer battery life: Reduced latency in 4G LTE results in faster data transfers and optimized power usage, extending smartphone battery life.
- Decreased network loads: LTE’s speed and reduced latency minimize network load, reducing crashes and ensuring reliable connectivity for businesses with remote locations.
2. IoT for Enterprise Businesses
Enterprises are adopting the Internet of Things (IoT) at a rapid pace, with the global IoT market projected to reach $1.6 trillion by 2025. In 2024, IoT will continue transforming enterprises by enabling real-time data collection and analysis, automated operations, and efficient decision-making.
With high-speed connectivity, enterprises can leverage IoT technology for improved communication, automation, and safety.
3. 5G Infrastructure
5G networks are expected to be widely available by 2024, offering faster download and upload speeds, lower latency, and greater reliability. This will significantly boost mobile communication, enabling new technologies like autonomous vehicles, augmented reality and virtual reality.
Blended communication technology will work seamlessly with 5G networks, providing high-speed broadband services for critical communication in public safety and other industries.
4. Satellite/Cellular Connectivity
Losing connectivity, even briefly, can have severe consequences for businesses, including financial risks and potential life-or-death situations. Ensuring all communication channels are always operational is crucial, but constantly monitoring and switching carriers can be time-consuming and frustrating. Uncontrollable factors like environmental conditions and customer demand can also disrupt cellular connections.
In remote areas, satellite communication has traditionally been the go-to communication solution. With blended satellite/cellular connectivity, it’s possible to have the best of both worlds.
Blended satellite/cellular networks allow seamless connectivity by switching between satellite and cellular networks as required. By 2024, we expect to see more growth in this area, particularly in industries like oil and gas that operate in remote areas.
