Each CommsUpdate article is tagged with one or more keywords including “Mergers & Acquisitions,” “Corporate & Financial,” and “Broadband.” These tags make it easy to filter CommsUpdate’s massive archive. Using these keywords, one can also observe the rise and fall of prevailing telecommunications technologies over time. For example, in 2010, articles tagged with the keyword “WiMAX” gave way to “LTE” as the latter gained wider and faster adoption than the former.
