Bell Research Labs and Motorola both had research and development initiatives to invent a wireless telephone which could connect to the existing telephone networks. In 1973, Dr. Martin Cooper of Motorola invented the first modern wireless telephone. The patent number for the telephone was 3,906,166 [2].

Higher frequencies are often preferred for cell phones with high-resolution digital cameras where high-bandwidth video needs to be sent. Newton’s Telecom Dictionary says that Shannon’s law is “a theorem defining the theoretical maximum at which error free transmission can be transmitted over a bandwidth limited channel in the presence of noise” [17]. Newton’s Telecom Dictionary states that the theorem works out to approximately 10 bits per hertz in analog circuits [17]. However, in 2011 there are many ways of getting more information on a signal such as using digital circuits and quadra angle signaling.
