Mosaik Solutions Unveils Map Depicting 30 Years of Key Events That Have Shaped the Industry
Mosaik Solutions, the global source for geospatial network intelligence, today officially announces its “First 30 Years to the Big Four” Wireless Industry Evolution Map. The unprecedented map depicts notable events over the past 30 years leading up to the formation of the Big Four operators: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. The map was unveiled at last night’s Wireless History Foundation Hall of Fame Dinner at MobileCON 2013.
Showcasing the capabilities of Mosaik’s creative team, as well as the company’s depth of knowledge and deep-rooted industry connections, the map is a strong visualization of how the nation’s biggest carriers have evolved. This includes mergers, acquisitions and significant technological advancements throughout the first 30 years of this dynamic market. The granularity and amount of the data gathered and visualized by Mosaik exemplifies the company’s unique team composition of creatives, geospatial analysts, software engineers and telecom industry experts.
The Wireless Industry Evolution Map displays many developments in the industry including the original breakup of AT&T, the impact of the Telecom Act of 1996, Sprint’s rollup of its affiliates, Verizon Wireless’ acquisition of Alltel, the release of major smartphones and currently proposed mergers and acquisitions.
“As a twenty-five year-old company who pioneered coverage map design, Mosaik Solutions has a great appreciation for the rich history depicted in our new Wireless Industry Evolution Map,” said Bryan Darr, CEO of Mosaik Solutions. “Our creative design capabilities and network intelligence have been a vital resource for those making the business decisions that have made the wireless industry what it is today.”
“Each aspect of this map, including the theme, colors, and images, were carefully considered to accurately and effectively portray the progression of the Big Four,” said Conroy Lam, senior graphic designer at Mosaik Solutions. “This map is a testament to our team’s varied capabilities. It shows that our extensive creative design talents linked with intricate telecom background knowledge, makes visualizing such a detailed, complex history possible.”
"We are so pleased to include the Wireless Industry Evolution Map created by Mosaik Solutions that shows the incredible evolution of wireless operators in our celebration of 30 years of service,” said Liz Maxfield, executive director of the Wireless History Foundation. “Mosaik Solutions has been an important part of the wireless industry for more than 25 years, and we appreciate their support of the Wireless History Foundation and of the Wireless Hall of Fame Dinner."
