Smart Wireless Broadband Technology for Smart Cities

Posted 12/05/2017 by Neil Bullock

The next generation of wireless communications equipment will need to be able to integrate with traffic lights, street lights and bus stops. It must become smaller, lighter, low-power. It must also become more modular to accommodate a wide range of services, from 5G to metro Wi-Fi to NB-IO, and make it easier to integrate and deploy in new systems.

After all, when it comes to video quality, the higher the resolution the better quality, right? Actually, that is not always the case. While resolution certainly does matter, video quality is actually the combination of a number of factors. Everything from the refresh rate of the screen to the compression applied, all will affect the final quality of the video.
