This preview shows 2 out of 3 pages.

Wireless network interface card:  enables mobile devices to communicate wirelessly. Wireless mesh networks  use multiple Wi-Fi access points to create a wide-area network  that can be very large.   Mobile computing:  refers to real-time, wireless connection between a mobile device and  other computing environments, such as the Internet and an intranet. Mobility:  users carry a mobile device and can initiate a real-time contact with other  systems from wherever they happen to be. Broad reach:  users can be reached instantly when they carry an open mobile device. Ubiquity : mobile device can provide information and communications regardless of  user’s location. Convenience  and  Instant Connectivity : Internet-enabled mobile device makes it easy  and fast to access the Web, intranets, and other mobile devices without booting up a PC  or placing a call. Personalization : information can be customized and sent to individual consumers (e.g.,  as a short message service). Localization of products and services : knowing a user’s location helps companies  advertise their products and services. Mobile commerce  refers to electronic commerce transactions that are conducted in a  wireless environment, especially via the Internet. Shopping from Wireless Devices  – online vendors allow customers to shop from  wireless devices. Location-based Advertising  is when marketers know the current locations and  preferences of mobile users, they can send user-specific advertising messages to wireless  devices about nearby shops, malls and restaurants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
