Mission-Critical Communication: Empowering Real-Time First Response with 5G

Across a wide array of contexts, 5G technology is opening the path for rapid communications and seamless data transfer, powering the shift to a more connected world. There are few arenas, however, where this capability is more essential than in the provision of mission-critical communications (MCX).

Connected vehicles: how to select 4G/5G network access devices

As the automotive industry continues to mature, adding more connected vehicles continuously, it’s important to keep looking ahead. Vehicles, in contrast to many other items of hardware, have long active lifespans so car makers are focused a long way ahead in terms of planning their future products. How to do this effectively was a key focus in a recent Quectel webinar hosted by Manfred Lindacher, VP, Sales Automotive International at Quectel Wireless Solutions.

Marine and wildlife conservation initiatives rely on IoT to protect endangered species

Many of the most popular commercial applications in IoT have introduced capabilities that are finding applications in conservation and are being used to help to protect and manage marine and wildlife populations. Now-mature technologies such as wireless sensor networks and GPS-enabled monitoring can easily be adopted to track animals and to foster better understanding of animal behaviours. In extreme situations IoT can be a contributor to the securing the safety of endangered species that face threats from poachers.

Increased Employee Safety – Smart Factory Solution

In a typical manufacturing/supplying product company, both management and working teams face many challenges, ranging from employee safety or security of the equipment, to minimizing the time spent on optimal use of storage space. An important aspect is also the efficiency of work, as well as the possibility of reducing the negative effects of a potential incident on the company’s premises.

Protecting Hotel Staff with Indoor Location – Panic Button Solution

Hotel employees are exposed to dangerous situations. In some US states, a law has been introduced that imposes the implementation of technical solutions that allow for locating an employee quickly in case of an emergency. The idea is to introduce ‘panic buttons’ carried by hotel staff. When the safety button is pushed, a system enables real-time location of the person in danger.

5G is finally in use across the IoT – should your business make the switch?

IoT Industry Impact: Field Services

As world populations age, the human and economic toll of currently incurable neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s grows staggering. DZNE fights these diseases using Big Data analytics, but the limitations of traditional computer systems have been a major bottleneck. Seeking a breakthrough solution, DZNE discovered HPE’s Memory Driven Computing—and saw unprecedented computational speed improvements that hold new promise in the race against Alzheimer’s.

SMS WorldWide’s Disaster Communication System Powered by MultiTech

In times of crisis, maintaining communication between individuals is vital. With this awareness in mind, SMS WorldWide went to work in 1999 to develop the rst major incident text communication system to handle emergency communication management needs. The system required a no-fault text messaging foundation. Regardless of any and all conditions, it was imperative that messages within the system could be successfully transmitted from a desktop, laptop or tablet computer to any cell phone on any network worldwide. Failure within the system was unacceptable.

Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory

The Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) is an application that recognizes the great humanitarian and scientific potential of the IoT. Partnered with Oregon State University and the Delft University of Technology, the organization aims to create a socially driven network of 20,000 connected weather monitoring stations every 30 km across the continent, to accurately measure previously undocumented weather systems, and leapfrog Africa to one of the best monitored continents in the world.
