eMobility demands precision, price, power and packaging

Quectel’s LC79D GNSS module enables the eMobility industry, especially micromobility companies, to harness the fusion of data from different sensors in a very small footprint at very low incremental cost yet with unparalleled accuracy. The LC79D is in production and samples and development kits are available now, uniquely offering both L1 and L5 capability which can bridge the gap between basic GPSmodules and very expensive high-end GNSS systems that are both cost-prohibitive and too power-hungry for use in eMobility.

A technology for all – why LTE Cat-1 is transforming cellular connectivity

We are living in a hyper-connected world in which interconnected devices are ubiquitous. At the same time, existing technologies such as 2G and 3G are being retired to be replaced by new choices of network technology that can provide excellent fits for individual solutions. However, the IoT industry is looking for an all-in one solution that brings together excellent coverage and capacity and is secure, resilient and future-proof. In addition, the solution needs to deliver cost advantages, global roaming and voice capability.

LTE Cat-1 is a transformative technology because it can provide all these attributes and presents a simple way to connect IoT and enable a smarter world. To learn more read our report here.

Will COVID-19 change the face of automation?

The year is 2020 and the world is gripped by the COVID-19 pandemic. With social distancing and remote working highly encouraged, our reality has changed drastically in a space of weeks and months. A return to the pre-coronavirus status quo seems unthinkable and waves of change are being felt across all levels of society. How will businesses react amidst widespread reports of temporary layoffs and long-term unemployment which are fueling the growing impact of the virus on the global economy?

Thinking 5G? Things You Should Know

Fifth-generation wireless (5G) is the latest iteration of cellular radio technology, engineered to greatly increase the speed and responsiveness of wireless networks while, at the same time, significantly reducing latency. Typically, a new generation is named when it denotes a significant leap in wireless mobile technologies, and 5G will provide significantly advanced features, such as higher data rates (peak of 10 GB/s); lower latency (1-4 milliseconds); and higher capacity at each tower (1M+ sensors per square kilometer).

Evaluating Quality in IoT Modules for Device Longevity

Considering the critical role they play in a successful IoT deployment, cellular IoT module function must always be appropriate, consistent and sustainable. These small communication adapters and computing devices allow physical objects to connect and interact with wireless networks as they transmit the data that devices sense, collect and store.

The ‘Private’ in Private LTE: IoT Healthcare Networks and Data Security

From inpatient monitoring to connected drug delivery systems, remote appointments to at-home care for high-risk patients, the use cases of IoT in healthcare are infinite. Given the rising pressure on doctors and nurses, IoT applications could be more widely implemented to alleviate the strain, ensuring patients continue to receive the same high - or even improved - levels of care. Not only do connected devices aid physicians, they may also empower patients to play a more active role in managing their own health. First, though, a reliable connectivity solution is required in order to successfully deploy, and take full advantage of the benefits offered by IoT health applications.

IoT Modules Hardened with End-to-End Security

This paper examines the comprehensive security needs of IoT modules and platforms and discusses the best practices to ensure that the whole system is protected.


Up to now, IoT has always had to use standard plastic SIMs , but eSIM is changing all that with the potential for increased openness and flexibility.

Innovation in Private Networks: no need to wait for 5G

LTE clearly has the right attributes for private business networks and the key performance parameters, a peak rate of 1 Gbps and latency less than 50 milliseconds, are state-of-the-art figures. They can run low data rate applications like LTE-M and NB-IoT, as well as the high data rates needed for on-line security cameras. This adds up to a very positive case for employing LTE connectivity on private networks.


The idea of connecting devices and sensors over the cloud enables many new applications such as Industry 4.0, asset tracking, connected cars, telehealth and much more. Suddenly, many operational experts in vertical segments such as agriculture, the petroleum and oil industry, manufacturing, and more are becoming deeply involved in the Internet of Things. They are partnering with experts in IoT to provide complete solutions to their clients. The future is bright with more IoT applications, 5G network and Low-Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) being developed. And this is just the beginning.

Harnessing Automation on the Path to Digital Transformation

The future of automation in UK industry looks promising, at least in the sense that companies are willing to seize the opportunity presented by COVID-19 to introduce technologies not requiring human intervention in the workplace. Furthermore, Pod Group’s latest survey also reveals that efforts to automate processes will be ramped up as a result of the pandemic. However, automation technology needs to be adopted for the right reasons and with a clear strategy. Not defining the“how” will get businesses nowhere, with the outcome a far cry from what was initially envisaged.
