Standardized settings have become an indispensable part of our lives. The absence of standards would render our lives chaotic. We have standard A4/ Legal size sheets; we have housing standards; we also spend most of our time with standard technologies such as the Wi-Fi. These standards make everything around us simpler to utilize. Imagine not having a standard A4/ Legal sized paper-- we’d probably be spending our days standing next to our printers adjusting papers.
Telecommunication and smartphone industries, these days are highly dependent on standardized technology. Standardization of technology matters because of its influence on interoperability across competing devices, lowering the costs of products for consumers and encouraging compatibility amongst various competitor’s products. In a nutshell, standards are crucial for products to communicate with each other and provide ease of use and other benefits to consumers.
