With technology at hand now, and a vision for what Beijing could be in 2008, the Chinese city will host the most modern, high-tech Olympic Games ever in 2008.
Beijing is already looking at “4G” that will allow users to perform wirelessly in a fully mobile environment what they can do at home or in the office while wired to the Internet.
4G could bring to Beijing Olympics:
– better security by allowing the deployment and wireless backhauling of cameras,
– wireless connection of traffic control boxes to intelligent transportation management systems,
– creation of mobile hot spots.
Furthermore, the 4G mobile broadband network will be deployed for the Games according to a strategy that should ensure that its inhabitants will also enjoy lasting benefits.
