The 3.9G and 4G are the promising high-speed wireless technologies. With more companies from different industries, a new business environment will arise in years to come. The complex nature of interaction with other industries necessitates the wireless communication industry to seek quality methods and management it has never or hardly utilized, which means more effort for the quality improvement engineers. It is said that the high-speed wireless technology, specifically 4G, would have faster data communication speeds than optimal cables. This excellent specification will enable various industries to utilize this technology in their products or services. In such business environment transition, the Japanese wireless communication industry would face a difficulty of managing quality practices. However, the industry would also be able to have business chances to expand their operation into other fields by introducing quality practices. The Japanese automotive industry, on the other hand, is well-known for their quality management. By analyzing its quality practices, the problems that the wireless communication industry has to pursue for improvement of quality practices would come to light. For my analysis, quality of practices was compared to seek similarities and differences between the Japanese wireless communication and automotive industries. Based on this, analysis will thrash out future solutions to practices the wireless communication industry should implement.
