BBC London Olympics will be extensive use of mobile media

Following the Internet from a technical means to become the fourth media, the many people have mobile phones as the fifth media. But the communication speed is too low (ie, bandwidth is not enough), makes the mobile phone can not afford a lot of information, particularly pictures and audio and video information transmission. As with the press, radio, television and the Internet as a media form of a tie still quite immature.

Recently, some media from Barcelona at the World Mobile Congress understood that mobile broadband technology has become the focus of competition in mobile communications sector. In this area, including "Long Term Evolution (LTE)" technology, including a variety of technology will play an important role. As a powerful wireless communications technology, LTE peak download speeds of up to 100Mbps, upload peak speeds of up to 50Mbps. If the bandwidth to achieve a breakthrough on the Internet, various functions can be ported to mobile phones, mobile phones will rapidly rise as a medium.

And the Internet is different from mobile media start very high. Is expected to 2013, the number of worldwide mobile Internet users will exceed the number of Internet users use the computer to reach 1.78 billion. Contrast to the rapid development of Internet history, we can predict that if the bandwidth to achieve a breakthrough soon, mobile phones, we can immediately become the largest number of users of a media is bound to impact on the formation of other media.

It is precisely because the significance of the fifth media, mobile communications to the General Assembly of the World, "based on mobile communications media" and mobile broadband, mobile communications applications, as the General Assembly with the main question.

According to the General Assembly, the Global System for Mobile Communications Association, organizers predicted that 15 years after it had been 50 billion of electronic equipment is mobile Internet, people, and objects of basic interoperability of the era will become a reality. By then, the fifth media's influence over the current imagination. The other four media, media convergence is only the fifth in order to ensure survival in the premise, exceed and achieve the development of mobile broadband era.
