This has given birth to enormous industrial activity. Manufacturing and maintenance industry has been flourishing in the Internet era. These computers along with the latest media players should be capable of functioning in rural as well as urban environment with diametrically opposite extremes of temperature and poor quality power supply conditions. The communication systems have to use high technologies for fast transmission of enormous amount of data. Optical fibres of hundreds of thousands of kilometres are required to be laid around the earth's surface forming FLAG -Fibre optic Link Around Globe. On the other hand cellular mobile system requires modular cells to supplement the satellite based global communication system. These systems are providing Internet broadband connections that are resulting in the increase in download and upload speeds, just imagine a system with 2 MB link can do i.e., the customer can hear online streaming audio and view available online videos. The industry is also required to manufacture and supply those tiny cell terminals, which in addition to being cell phones, also provide the Internet browsing, or E-mail facility for the busy executive, who is always hard-pressed for time.
The Internet system also requires large number of knowledge workers. ...
A large number of the software engineers are working in the music industry across the globe to make quality music available online so that customer instssead of buying conventional music CD's can buy his/her choice of music online and thus saving time. It is expected that there will be millions of job opportunities in the music industry in the current fiscal year.
Online music helping the manufacturing industry
Internet has a new incarnation in industry and it is called intranet. In other words Intranet is a private network of an industrial organisation. It uses the same protocols and standards as those of Internet. Intranet structure is also similar to that of Internet. The servers and the user terminals within the company are networked together. While the servers are the repositories of the data, information, records, design, procedures, inventory, decision, policies, and everything else that is required for all the industrial activity, the required information is available to each and every functionary of the industry on his desk. The executives, for whom the distinction between home and office has already vanished, have access to the required information at anyplace and at anytime either through his home computer or through the hand held mobile terminal like Ipod's, PDA's, Simputers, MP3 players, etc. Internet system provides all the updates, modifications, and configuration control details etc., in real time to the concerned persons. Quality alerts and market pricks can be passed on to those concerned throughout the factory at the split of a second. Needles to state, the Intranet transmits and provides access to the information to
