2016 Spectrum Guide Released

If you use a mobile or smartphone, you need to know the term “spectrum.”

In wireless, Spectrum refers to the radio portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. The radio spectrum spans a certain, limited frequency range. Multiple signals can be transmitted simultaneously on different frequencies. But if the frequencies are the same, or even too close, the signals interfere with each other.

This may be a little geeky to the average person, but if you are interested how you smartphone works now and will work into the future, this is worthwhile reading.
