Well, this week’s themes are BIG. Fundamental flaws in chip security are affecting all kinds of IoT devices, and big players like Intel and Apple are in the frame as they scramble to patch the problem. ‘Does the IoT have the device management tools needed to fix this?’ asks Jeremy Cowan. One analyst doubts it.
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.
Altair Semiconductor, a provider of LTE chipsets, reports that the ALT1210 LTE-M chipset has successfully completed AT&T’s ADAPT chipset validation process. The ADAPT validation improves time-to-market and reduces the cost associated with the introduction of new Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Representatives from two of India’s creative companies have visited Birmingham City University to learn more about how the UK university is training the next generation of virtual reality (VR) professionals, and with the hope of exploring potential partnerships in the future.
