This is less than 14.6 mobile device synchronization, and it's less than we're gonna discuss Different in various ways to synchronize the data on your mobile device between different service is. So let's go and jump right in mobile data synchronization.
In today's world, there are a lot of different technologies that you could use an access from a new mobile device.
And that's what makes mobile devices so popular.
There's a lot of different applications. Service is some of the service is to name a few email calendar in texts. There's a tremendous amount of APS that we use for personal use, business use or whatever the case may be that we can use those across multiple devices.
We can access the same accounts across multiple devices, the same applications
and again, today's technology. We've come a long way where we can use these applications ago across many different devices
that could be devices off different operating systems in different formats. But with all those applications and all the multiple devices that we can use to access those applications, there has to be a way to synchronize that to keep all of that information in sync. We're in a world of complete mobility. So therefore,
that data has to be in sync. It has to be the same on all the devices.
Um, the devices have to stay in sync, and it has to be transparent to US users and has to be a way that's very intuitive, that we don't see the sinking behind the scenes. And also one of the biggest concerns in a situation like that would be security. It has to have a way to authenticate
me as the user us, the user on across many devices that you're using and we're using.
So the clients must authenticate to the servers as well. So that's the state of technology and where we're at. And we're going to discuss various ways of synchronization that happened on mobile devices.
So there's a lot of different data types that we have. We have contacts, we have e mails. We use e books, location data for phones, bookmarks, applications, documents, social media, data, calendar, passwords, pictures. And this is just a few of the different data types that we use across multiple devices.
So again, we have to find a way to sink these
because when I use a tablet, and when I use the phone, all of that information should be transparent. To me, the end user. Are you the end user?
So that's off. What cloud synchronization Automatic synchronization does not have to manually sink. It just happens automatically integrated with some software like exchange or Google, it can synchronize over a different type of Internet connection mediums, whether that be a WiFi or cellular network.
And in Apple IOS, you can sink your data in iCloud. That's one form of sinking. There.
Complete backs up everything to from that phone to the iCloud and an android. It will be your Google account.
There's also a way to synchronize in desktop desktop synchronization. There may be some environments or some users that don't want their information to go to the cloud. They want to synchronize it to a desktop or a server of some type that in the cloud. So application requirements is some things you would have to look at operating system and displaced. Of course,
the operating system would have to be a new release that supports those type of features because there's gonna have to be a software of some type
that would be the connection medium between your device and the storage on that desk. Top
memory would be have to be relatively minimal because you're not using the application. You're just transferred the data from a device to the storage place. Now storage space is the key here.
I have to be large enough to store data, pictures, videos, et cetera, and you have to plan for growth. Our data use is not slowing down by any means,
so an IOS and Android is different ways. That desk tastic organization could happen in Iowa s. We use Apple. ITunes thinks everything to the phone and creates backs up on the computer.
Androids thinks with online with Google. But there's 30 part third party applications that will allow you to transfer movies and music from your device to a desktop or laptop
auto bill synchronization. This is another type of synchronization you kick. Connect your phone to your automobile or your device to your automobile. You can use a wire or Bluetooth. You can display maps, control phone calls, plays music. This is a great way for hands free. Do too easy viewing from the
cars in dash screen or the monitors that set up in newer cars. Now,
in IOS, you can use the features of car play an android, and they'd be android auto again. Synchronize your contacts, you music. Share your phone information from their vote mobile device to your phone. Now there is a security concern there as well, because if you're a one of multiple users of a vehicle
and when you upload your contact information to that vehicle,
your contact information is staying on that vehicle. So when you're not using the vehicle in someone else, someone else has access to your information. So you want to be aware of that.
Okay? Synchronization type connections. There's various ways we can synchronize our data in IOS. We can use the USB proprietary connections, the 30 pin Connection adapter or the AP Enlightening connection. Also, U S B. C. We can also synchronize over 802.11 wireless
and across the mobile network.
An android. It'll be similar USB see the 80 to a wireless network and also the mobile network as well.
All right, different ways to synchronize our data from our mobile devices to the either the cloud or to a desktop or to a server. So we talked about different ways to synchronize our information. So that's it for this lesson, and we will see you in the next lesson.
