As the hype cycle in the Internet of Things (IoT) begins to yield to more realistic expectations, a new study by the GSMA’s Mobile World Live and commissioned by mobile technology R&D firm InterDigital, highlights some important transitions in market perception.
Ericsson is reported to be expanding its end-to-end 5G Platform by adding new hardware and software products to the Ericsson Radio System portfolio. The aim is to enhance the agility and speed with which communication service providers can roll out their 5G networks.
As new LTE mission critical standards are being established by 3GPP, there is a major opportunity for the rail industry to benefit from the latest secure broadband voice and data services.
The two providers in mission-critical (MC) communications, Sonim Technologies and Softil, jointly announce that they have combined their technologies enabling Sonim to roll out the world’s most rugged range of next generation LTE devices for first responders.
For about two years the Internet of Things (IoT) has been in what Gartner’s Hypecycle refers to as the ‘Trough of Disillusionment’. So say three InterDigital executives talking to Jeremy Cowan of IoT Now at Mobile World Congress (#MWC18) in Barcelona.
As Mobile World Congress in Barcelona draws near again, you know that 5G will be on people’s lips. So Jeremy Cowan of IoT-Now.com asked Chris Pearson, president of 5G Americas to shed some light on what the advent of 5G will mean to all of us.
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, and Ford Motor Company, are accelerating the development of connected cars with the extension of their long-standing relationship into the development of advanced connectivity systems for
Mobile operators have a significant opportunity to offer LPWA solutions, but competition will be intense. The leaders have decided which technology to support – for example, AT&T has opted for LTE-M, Orange uses LoRa and LTE-M and Vodafone has gone for NB-IoT.
We forecast that 6.4 billion IoT connections worldwide will use fixed, mobile and low-power wide-area (LPWA) networks by 2025. As the IoT market grows, so does the security risk. The discussions on how to secure the IoT are increasingly the focus of attention.
Technologies in Mission Critical Communications (MCC) are incorporating functionality with LTE, but during this transition period, the performance must not be affected, says Pierre Minot, president of ETELM, a manufacturer of advanced Mission Critical communications infrastructures.
