This white paper evaluates the performance of LTE-M in meeting the high coverage, low-cost and low-power consumption demanded for cellular IoT applications.Comparing LTE-M’s performance against 3GPP requirements, the study reveals LTE-M capable of 10.4 years of battery life in extremely deep coverage, with a message latency of just 6.2 seconds, exceeding the set performance [...]
Introduction: In an increasingly complex and globalized logistics landscape, being able to accurately track assets as they move throughout the supply chain can be a huge advantage for businesses. But generating real-time data on mobile assets has traditionally been difficult to achieve. Containers and pallets are often transported through remote areas that have low connectivity and limited [...]
In recent years, the cost of sensors has decreased and the network capabilities designed to handle sensor data have evolved to meet application needs. As a result, the question for companies, businesses, organizations, and municipalities is no longer whether an IoT (Internet of Things) deployment is possible —instead, the question is how to implement wide area IoT solutions. Since each IoT [...]
Could dynamic sharing and the scalable use of the 3.5 GHz spectrum be the next big business opportunity for CSP’s and MNO’s?
A new paper looks at the business opportunities for telco providers and mobile network operators opened up by Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), based on dynamic shared spectrum access.
This paper explains how dynamic sharing and scalable use of [...]
Along with remote monitoring, tracking/tracing applications are a bedrock of the IoT. The ability to find assets, to track them as part of a logistical operation or even to just monitor where people or animals are is a fundamental requirement.
As shown in Figure 1, the number of mobile assets being tracked worldwide at end 2017 was in the region of 50m units of which over 90% were [...]
It’s no secret that organizations utilizing low-power IoT applications should be giving increased consideration to their eventual migration from 2G and/or 3G networks to LTE. While the transition seems daunting – and make no mistake, any major change has bumps in the road – working ahead with your timeline and technology requirements in mind will make the process much easier to [...]
Global demand for agricultural products is on the rise. By applying advanced technologies in agricultural production, farmers are able to measure and manage the variability of crops in the fields and animals within the herds. Connected equipment, sensors and [...]
In the UK, the average per capita cost of a data breach in the transportation industry is £72 per data record – meaning that if 10,000 data records are lost or stolen, it could cost an organisation £720,0001. With that price tag in mind, it’s imperative that companies take all of the necessary steps to reach reliable, secure network connectivity.
Network security is especially [...]
Aeris’ Evan Whitelock explains why eUICC is the enabler of multi-carrier, multi-platform IoT
Assessing the requirements for an IoT security strategy in the business environment needs careful attention these days. With cyber threats rife and frequent reports of security breaches to businesses big and small, no one is safe, and many are not prepared.
