The future of telecommunications worldwide

World growth can be summarized in many ways. We can look at the dramatic transformation of statistics over a number of years in birthrates, the rise and decline of diverse economies, and the vast social and cultural movements, which continue to enthrall and bewilder us. But the one industry, which connects all of these various aspects together, is undeniably one of the most rapidly evolving industries: telecommunications.
The future of IMAGE
Unparalleled growth
In two decades, we have been swept from corded telephones and tube TVs into the multi-stimulus infused world of smartphones, tablets, laptops, and virtually limitless Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. We have practically bypassed what was once predicted to be the infinite era of CDs, DVDs, and MP3s, and transcended into direct file sharing, downloading and streaming. Now, our cinemas, offices and social rooms can all be accessed with a few screen taps in a cafe with a good signal. We take it for granted, but it’s actually incredible.
Telecommunications have been integral to the development of Asia – as well as North America and Europe – and its economy. Necessities and luxuries alike have flourished in a competitive and free market that is powered by online access. The result is not just widespread access to business resources and commerce, but an explosion of cultural fusion and accessible education. Telecommunications is now so deeply ingrained in our lifestyles and functioning that the relationship is infinite, and constantly evolving.
Rebirth and rebuild
However,it is not just the booming economies of the East that are benefiting from this very vital asset. The Middle East has been investing in massive telecommunications infrastructures for a number of years, and Africa and other parts of Asia are following suit.
One of the most promising ventures has already come to fruition in Afghanistan, through the work of Ehsanollah Bayat. Bayat, a successful Afghan businessman who is also the founder of Telephone Systems International, Inc. in Florida, worked in close partnership with the Afghan Ministry of Communications to create Afghan Wireless, the first mobile provider of its kind in the country. Afghan Wireless has already made a significant impact on the country’s economy, connecting communities and helping to rebuild its social and economic infrastructure in the aftermath of the Taliban. Such work has garnered praise and recognition from the international community, and Bayat’s achievements are not only seen as progress in business, but also in humanitarian effort.
This easily places Bayat as one of the most pioneering, innovative, and conscientious thinkers on the telecommunications scene, alongside Richard Branson. His ventures also reflect the ability to help regenerate a region and use telecommunications as the heart of its recovery, not only helping to resurrect it but to pave a promising future. As more and more economies across the globe rely on mobile services for connectivity in virtually every conceivable operation, it’s not surprising that they look for inspiration to the exciting changes taking place in countries like Afghanistan.
No doubt, the futurepoints towards cloud computing, unlimited streaming, instant access, and secure transactions, which are accessible from virtually any place on any device. What is set in place now is just a teasing glimpse of what is to come, and how our world is more connected than ever.
