With new product launches and evolution of existing devices requiring multiple radios, smaller form factors, and greater device breadth, OEMs are increasingly challenged both at the design phase and when getting their products to market. The majority of this market is made up of embedded antennas that are challenged to find space within devices that allows them to connect without interference but not all use cases face the same constraints.
To accommodate the rapid growth of the IoT, developers are having to program an increasing number of devices with greater complexity, and at speed. Old approaches are too slow and cumbersome, but fast, flexible programming, using the Python language and the QuecPython environment for execution, is enabling IoT organizations to develop products in less than 30 minutes.
Everyone understands that building a successful startup is a long, complicated and high-risk task. The startup phase extends from the seed of an idea or concept and carries it through to the point at which a business that generates revenues, has employees and creates products or services.
Certification is an inescapable requirement for all new IoT devices. It requires investment of both time and money to ensure that the devices can be deployed in each target country and comply with all local requirements.
As the automobile itself, its component parts and the associated manufacturing and services become more and more connected, the potential vulnerability and threat landscape also grows.
Connected environments as one of the most prominent examples of Industrial IoT (IIoT) are the enabler for providing higher levels of productivity based on full transparency across all organizations worldwide.
Frost & Sullivan applies a rigorous analytical process to evaluate multiple nominees for each award category before determining the final award recipient. The process involves a detailed evaluation of best practices criteria across two dimensions for each nominated company. GXC excels in many of the criteria in the 5G private network space.
M37 Ventures has put together this brief to explore one of the key technologies that will facilitate private 5G adoption for enterprises in the near future and beyond – cellular mesh technology. We interviewed senior technology leaders, telecommunications experts, buyers and distributors, and the engineers developing the technology to enable it all.
Wireless connected payment devices have already been widely embraced across the globe with consumers preferring the convenience of card or mobile phone-enabled payments over handling cash. Since the pandemic, this has become even more apparent and cashless is not only the favored payment method but now the default for most users. In 2020, global consumer preference to pay with cash fell to 15%. The move away from cash and increased trust in near-field communication (NFC) for payments, has seen connected terminals for in-store remote payments become part of everyone’s daily lives and the global point of sale (POS) terminal market is growing even more rapidly because of this.
Since their inception, networking technologies have revolutionized global communications, offering us new ways to connect and collaborate in real time across the globe. From business and enterprise to the public sector, enhanced network capabilities have allowed organizations to improve their response times, increase their efficiency, and employ data-driven decision-making for better outcomes across multiple scenarios.
Everyone understands that 5G will bring with it a huge uplift in speed and capacity as well as device density per cell to support massive IoT. 5G is fundamentally changing the way we communicate, delivering improved latency and throughput. These benefits, plus network slicing, are just a few ways in which 5G will transform life for businesses and consumers. Central to 5G’s delivery will be antenna technology, and as such, the entire RF front end design layout. This is highly complex and 5G IoT deployments are reliant on optimized antenna and RF performance so 5G can deliver on its promises.
The promise of 5G is increased speed and capacity through extended mobile broadband (eMBB), but significant challenges exist in terms of spectrum availability which broadly divides 5G deployments into Sub 6GHz and mmWave bands. In 3GPP Release 15, FR1 describes the sub-6GHz spectrum while FR2 describes the range above 24GHz which extends to 100GHz – and beyond. Spectrum therefore has a significant effect on the throughput that 5G networks can achieve.
