Course: Information Technology in a Global Economy

Part A:

Discussion 6 (Week 5): Global Wireless

In discussion 5, we looked at networks in general; however, in this discussion we’re looking at wireless networks, mostly focusing on mobile networks. Mobile networks in a global economy can be a challenge for multiple reasons. First, governments in other countries control the mobile networks. Second is the technology. Mobile networks in other countries might not be as good as the mobile networks within the US. As a global company, how can we deal with this? With a big push for 5G, which has speeds well over 2Gbps, how does that change the way you do business? What are some things you need to think about when it comes to doing business globally, using a wireless mobile network?

Please make your initial post and two response posts substantive. A substantive post will do at least two of the following:

Make an argument concerning the topic.
At least one scholarly source should be used in the initial discussion thread. Be sure to use information from your readings and other sources from the UC Library. Use proper citations and references in your post.

Part B:

Week 5 Research Paper: Building an economy: Government planning vs. entrepreneurial innovation

Find a peer-reviewed scholarly journal article discussing government planning and/or entrepreneurial innovation. Complete a review of the article by writing a 3-4 page overview of the article. This will be a detailed summary of the journal article, including concepts discussed and findings. Additionally, find one other source (it does not have to be a peer-reviewed journal article) that substantiates the findings in the article you are reviewing.

You should use the UC library (https://www.ucumberlands.edu/library) and/or Google Scholar to find these types of articles (https://scholar.google.com/ )

Once you find the article, you will read it and write a review of it. This is considered a research article review.
