Ericsson is to build its first fully-automated smart factory in the U.S. The state-of-the-art factory will produce Advanced Antenna System radios to boost network capacity and coverage, including rural coverage, as well as 5G radios for urban areas, both necessary for rapid 5G deployments in North America.
5G, using 3GPP standardised wireless technology, has been commercially deployed by 15 mobile network operators worldwide, according to 5G Americas, the industry trade association and voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas and TeleGeography (GlobalComms Database). There will be an additional 47 launches of 5G technology expected before the end of 2019 for a total of more than 62 live 5G [...]
Altair Semiconductor, a provider of cellular IoT chipsets, reports that its ALT1250 dual mode CAT-M/NB-IoT chipset can now operate on the 450 MHz spectrum.
PTC has expanded its strategic alliance with Microsoft by delivering its Windchill product lifecycle management (PLM) solution on Microsoft Azure. PTC says optimising Windchill with Azure is another milestone in the growing relationship between the two companies.
Going from millions to billions of connections with the Internet of Things (IoT) will see deployments with massive, multi-region footprints. However, each of these connections will need to be managed with capabilities installed, activated and maintained. The challenge here is that traditional connectivity is not sufficiently automated, is inflexible and, often as a result of management [...]
UMC Utrecht uses tags and decentralised mesh network to enable on-demand dispatched equipment
Not knowing where things are, can be inconvenient at best. In hospitals, not having wheelchairs, beds and infusion pumps available at the right time can impede the required daily care. But as patients are frequently on the move, says Liam van Koert, keeping track of hospital assets proves [...]
Companies using or offering IoT-based products and services don’t want to be IoT network managers. Their focus is on digitally transforming their businesses, harnessing new capabilities and adopting new business models enabled by IoT. Time spent learning how to manage connectivity is a distraction that could also cause cost increases, delayed service introduction and lost competitive [...]
Online giants such as Google, Amazon and Facebook talk in terms of being webscale as if that is the largest possible market size that can be imagined. Yes, in comparison to traditional, physical markets, webscale is enormous. It certainly dwarfs the market for consumer connections such as cellphones or home internet connections which have a top end customer base limit of the world’s entire [...]
The number of IoT connections has been routinely projected to be in the billions during the early 2020s and, at last, momentum appears to have arrived with the millions of devices rolled out to date forming the basis for billions in the not too distant future. However, there is room for confusion within these predictions which stems from what constitutes an IoT connection. Research [...]
