As a telecommunication expert who has been with Verizon for the past 26 years, Steve Misencik is always interested in the emerging trends and new innovations within the industry. The future of telecommunication surely holds exciting events like it did in the past, and will probably always do, but the upcoming trends are just as interesting.
Cheaper and Cheaper Mobile Internet
The integration process with content providers continues in the telecommunication industry, and being connected is as cheap as ever. If content provider services can sustain their growth and success, it wouldn’t be unfeasible for one of them to acquire one of the biggest telecommunication giants. If that happens, we could see a collaboration like never before in the history of telecom.
Mobile connectivity is far more important these days than line connectivity, and the trend will definitely continue. More and more people ditch their home connection in favor of an improved mobile one, which means that the telecommunication companies put their resources there. 5G could be another game changer and its use could be widespread as early as 2022.
With the ever increasing connectivity that opens up a can of worms in terms of security issues, customers will demand more proactive solutions from telecommunication companies to guard their personal data. This is one of the biggest challenges that carriers will likely have to face, and their potential solutions can only come through technical and operational innovation.
Steve Misencik is fascinated by the potential that the future of telecommunication holds, and hopes that he will be able to play a big part in the story that’s about to unfold.
