Question description

DQ 1  In the
Fall of 2010, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) changed its
criteria for 4G communications (originally defined as 100MB per second or
higher) to an ambiguous definition of “a substantial improvement over 3G” after
pressure from cell providers who were using the term 4G in their marketing. Do
you think that this move has hurt the ITU’s reputation as a standards-defining
body? Why or why not?
DQ 2  Describe the
difference between circuit switching and packet switching. Name some examples
of networks that use each one. What are the advantages and disadvantages of
each?
