1. Introduction

"Discuss the implications of being able to communicate from anywhere in the world using mobile technology"

This part of the syllabus wants you to combine your understanding of satellite, mobile and wireless technologies with some kind of scenario, hence the 'Discuss the implications..." wording.

So it is not just about laying out facts as in the previous sections, but to also examine your understanding of the effects of technology.

The technologies are

  • Satellite communication systems
  • Cellular / Mobile networks
  • Wireless networks

The implications should cover both positive points and negative points for a balanced answer. After all, every technology has some kind of issue with it no matter how beneficial.

This mini-web will raise some scenarios for you. But you should discuss how to answer this kind of question with your teacher as well and practice with some made-up scenarios of your own.
