THE NEXT GENERATION SIM AND HOW IT WORKS

This paper will look at the characteristics of the traditional, Standard SIM and of the next generation of SIM and explain how they are different and the resulting benefits of the next generation of SIM technology

DIGI FIELD GUIDE: FIVE TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR IoT DESIGNS

This field guide provides an overview of five ways to improve the design of your wireless IoT product, get to market faster, and increase the reliability of your solution. While this document focuses on the unique challenges of cellular technology, the concepts apply to any wireless technology (e.g. LTE-M, NB-IoT, Bluetooth Mesh, or ZigBee, for example).

The Truth About eSIM: The Top 5 Myths – and Facts

As IoT capabilities and cellular connectivity requirements change, the emergence of eSIM has been heralded as the ultimate answer. While it certainly can help alleviate many of the current challenges IoT providers face – like achieving cost-effective global coverage and prolonging the lifespan of their investments – there are a few misconceptions that still need to be cleared up. The promise of eSIM is great, but the first step in implementing this new technology is understanding its capabilities as well as its ideal use-cases.

IOT DEVICE MANAGEMENT: SECURE AND SCALABLE DEPLOYMENTS

To effectively manage a complex IoT deployment requires an IoT device management application that not only lets you visualize the activity of complex networks in a simplified form, but also provides these important capabilities:
• Management: Manage large numbers of devices efficiently
• Monitoring: Monitor IoT deployments and ensure all devices are operating as expected
• Security: Continually scan the deployment for security issues and repair them

Key Questions to Ask to Make the Right IoT Endpoint Decision

Across industries and across use cases and business processes, organisations are increasingly implementing Internet of Things (IoT) applications to improve operational efficiencies, enhance existing offerings, and bring new offerings to market.

ANY-G TO LTE: THE TOP FIVE CONSIDERATIONS FOR MIGRATING TO 4G, 5G AND BEYOND

PREPARING FOR 2G AND 3G SUNSETS
In the consumer market, 4G and 5G LTE standards continue to gain favor as the preferred networks for phones and tablets, thanks to increased data speeds. Consumers might not give much thought to the differences between generations of cellular technology, but engineers and network professionals who manage remote commercial and industrial equipment are, naturally, very focused on the nuances and distinctions that can affect their short- and long-term plans. As many carriers announce their plans to sunset their legacy networks, managers of corporate wireless networks must prepare for the migration away from legacy 2G and 3G networks. This migration, which is already well underway in North America, Western and Northern Europe,Japan and South Korea, is driven by the pursuit of three fundamental and worthy benefits.

AERIS FUSION IoT NETWORK: BEST-IN-CLASS CONNECTIVITY

Aeris has been at the forefront of global IoT expansion for more than a decade, providing connectivity solutions and insights to industries regarding their products, their customers, and their business.

New MNO Opportunities Enabled by IoT Cloud-Native Platforms

As the consumer market for cellular services has become highly competitive and highly saturated, the Internet of Things (IoT) market is providing an attractive opportunity for mobile network operators (MNOs) to build new revenue streams.

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.

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.

Successful Troubleshooting Design For It

M2M / IoT devices sometimes encounter problems when operating in the field; however the logistics of reaching and repairing a M2M / IoT device - particularly one that is remote or otherwise not easily accessible within its installation - can often be quite expensive. Thus, it is important to design troubleshooting and device update support right from the start - the time and effort spent on this capability will save you significant time and money throughout the lifecycle of your deployment. This whitepaper identifies touch-points during the M2M / IoT application lifecycle, when it is important to consider the necessary debugging and troubleshooting support in a product.

Lorawan™ Capacity Trial in Dense Urban Environment

In December 2017, machineQ and Semtech executed a joint study designed to emulate a full-scale dense network based on these deployment techniques. In the study, multiple sensors hit multiple gateways. The study assessed the value of a dense network by reassuring packet success rate, interference, gateway density, and evaluated performanceand quality of service potential in a dense urban LoRaWAN™ network environment. The following paper summarizes the outcomes of this joint study.
