Wireless tech keeps criminals in check

By Clay Hine September 22, 2022

For the length of human history, technology has played an important role in preventing theft. Before car keys, Henry Ford had to chain his car to a lamppost to avoid anyone with the strength to turn a physical crank from stealing it. Anti-theft technology has moved on significantly since Ford’s day, but so too have the criminals, and it’s not just cars they have in their sights.

Improving transport facilities with wireless wastewater management

By Kevin Kotinkar August 31, 2022

When the average American toilet is flushed, six liters of water surge with a force of up to 40 psi before traveling over a million miles of irrigation and pipework. Yet, given that the plumbing is fixed to a set route with minimal diversions, this isn’t even the most complex wastewater management application to consider. Toilet systems on planes or trains travel thousands of kilometers daily and must remain in good working order from journey to journey.

Cellular IoT closes the gap between end-devices and the cloud

By Kristian Sæther August 10, 2022

Several technologies are vying to become the dominant player for LPWANs (Low-Power Wide-Area Networks ) – a critical part of the IoT’s infrastructure. But as the alternatives face headwinds, maturing cellular IoT is gaining increasing traction as the bridge between remote IoT devices and the cloud.

Smart street lighting and cellular IoT is the gateway to the smart city

By Alf Helge Omre June 29, 2022

Turning previously ‘dumb’ LED streetlighting ‘smart’ is one of the easiest cost-to-benefit propositions in smart city because it effectively pays for itself. And this is especially true with the advent of cellular IoT technology because it means the supporting infrastructure needed is already in place.

Could DECT NR+ democratize massive IoT in 5G?

By Kristian Sæther June 15, 2022

DECT NR+ (NR+) will be the first-ever, non-cellular wireless technology to become part of a cellular generation (“G”) standard, starting with 5G. It's also license-free and targets massive IoT applications targeting millions or billions of nodes. This takes massive IoT over 5G and private 5G networking from unaffordable for all but a privileged few to something any company can access.

How to get even more from NB-IoT

By Martin Lesund June 9, 2022

Billions of remote IoT end devices are quietly doing their jobs, measuring humidity, temperature, vibration, air quality, or any of a hundred other parameters. The data from these devices is valuable, but that value can only be realized once the data is transmitted to the cloud to be sifted, analyzed, and then used to make informed decisions.

Discovering innovative cellular IoT pioneers

By Thomas Page June 1, 2022

A study published in the U.K. earlier this year forecast the cellular IoT (LTE-M/NB-IoT) market would double in the next four years to $61 billion. Predictions aren’t always reliable, of course, but the numbers are significant, and if the sector lives up to its promise, continuous innovation will be essential.
