Internet of Things (IoT) newcomer, Riot Micro is claiming that a radical design approach applying BLE/Wi-Fi architecture has delivered a new cellular IoT solution with cost/power levels that are characteristic of short-range wireless systems. Here Peter Wong, CEO, tells Jeremy Cowan how Riot has reinvented itself as an IoT chipset maker.
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.
As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to mature, organisations are looking to select enabling technologies, services and solutions to turn their business ideas into reality. Among the many fundamental capabilities required, connectivity and security are among the most visible as Richard Stamvik, managing ecosystem and partnerships at MultiTech, discusses in this interview with IoT Now.
u-blox, a global provider of wireless and positioning modules and chips, announced that its SARA-N2 NB-IoT modules have successfully completed AVL certification with China Telecom and validation with China Unicom.
Qualcomm Incorporated announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and Alibaba have ported Alibaba Cloud Link One to run on the Qualcomm® MDM9206 global multi-mode LTE IoT modem.
Too much choice can be a dangerous thing but, the vast diversity of IoT applications and business models depend on appropriate functionality being available at varying price points. George Malim examines the options.
According to a new report from the M2M/IoT analyst firm Berg Insight, the installed base of smart gas meters in Europe will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 37.8% between 2016 and 2022 to reach 62.0 million units at the end of the period.
Nick Sacke, the head of IoT and Products at Comms365, believes IoT is on the cusp of mass deployment, as organisations use Lower Powered Wide Area Networking (LPWAN) and new IoT-as-aService (IoTaaS) deployment models to achieve fast, minimal risk, low cost innovation.
The IIoT is predicated on a simple concept: acquire device data and leverage its value. That is the basic business model. Vendors package the various hardware, software and service components into bottom up solutions that go from networked devices through to enterprise environments.
The GSMA has announced that mobile network operators are set to benefit from an estimated US$1.8 trillion (€1.50 trillion) Internet of Things (IoT) revenue opportunity by 2026 boosted by the early deployment of commercial Low Power Wide Area Networks in licensed spectrum,
