The Technological Fundamentals of Successful Wireless Applications
While this report was published in November of 2003 it is still as relevant as ever. In fact, I always thought that this report needed to be written much earlier. It was always on my to-do list while in the investment banking business. This report explains the basics of wireless communication applications in a relatively non-technical manner, and links those technological fundamentals to the business principles that drive successful wireless applications. My favorite misconception that I hear over and over is the one that directly equates higher frequency communications with longer range communications, when in reality there is an inverse relationship between frequency and range. That fundamental, in turn, directly impacts the density of communications infrastructure (i.e. infrastructure cost) needed to deploy a communications system. Those costs, of course, are key to the success of a business based on that system. This is one of many interesting fundamentals you'll find in this report.
