Recent high-profile product recalls and failures have shown that even the most experienced and well-funded company can fall down when it comes to product testing. A product goes through two fundamental types of test. The first is ...
According to a recent report from Nextmarket Insights, the current home automation systems and services market is about 3.6 billion and is forecast to grow to around 15 billion by 2017. This market growth will be driven by a newly emerging homes service market where various cable MSOs, broadband service providers, and telcos will be offering a variety of new home automation and connected home services.
This is the third article in a three-part series. The first article examined the driving forces for QoS in wireless networks and the second article outlined the technical requirements of the LTE QoS framework. This article describes how QoS is being implemented in LTE networks using purpose-built System-on-Chip communication processors.
This is the second article in a three-part series. The first article examined the driving forces for QoS in mobile networks. This article outlines the technical requirements of the LTE QoS framework, including the critical parameters and policy controls, and how these fit into the LTE architecture.
Ongoing worldwide adoption of mobile devices has created unprecedented demand for access to e-commerce, social media and entertainment applications anywhere, at any time. This has not only increased the amount of mobile broadband traffic transported by the carrier networks, but also transformed its composition.
Ottawa, Canada-based TrueNorth Avionics outfits private, VIP business jets with airborne telecommunications technologies. With full telecommunications capabilities available, passengers can turn otherwise nonproductive time in the air into useful working time, or — in the midst of a hectic and grueling travel schedule — grab a few moments to stay in touch with family and loved ones at home.
The majority of new LTE platforms being released to the market have digital MIPI RFFE interface, which controls radio frequency front-end (RFFE) components, either from an application processor or baseband. One front-end component is a power management device for power amplifiers. There are two types of power management solutions for power amplifiers.
The Value of Information: Best Practices for Choosing a Wireless Network for Connecting the Internet of ThingsSeptember 5, 2013 5:21 pm | by Jake Rasweiler, Chief Strategy Officer, On-Ramp | Comments
Whether it is called the Internet of Things (IoT), the Industrial Internet, or the Internet of Everything, the vision is relatively the same – achieve value by connecting billions of previously unconnected devices or objects to a network for the automation of insights that can be used to solve existing business problems, improve efficiencies, or create new business opportunities.
Increasing demand for product specialization from customers and market pressures to speed new product introductions are two big challenges facing manufacturers today. Manufacturers with engineer-to-order and made-to-order products need new tools to be able to successfully share the collective brainpower of manufacturing and engineering in real-time.
Brain imaging equipment has been around since the 1930s, but we have made very little progress in understanding the human brain, explains Tan Le, Founder and CEO of Emotiv Insight. With almost a decade of experience in the field, she hopes to change this.
As LTE networks start to mature across the world, more and more carriers are looking introduce voice services on LTE networks using a technology called Voice over LTE (VoLTE). What is not always understood is that voice services on LTE are very different from those on 2G and 3G networks. An appreciation of the differences leads us to the conclusion that we must think and act differently for 4G.
Energy harvesting wireless technology is important for realizing interconnected M2M systems more reliably, conveniently, and economically while utilizing existing communication technologies. Machine-to-Machine communication enables equipment to interact with other equipment without human intervention, creating an intelligent network that automatically manages everyday tasks in production, logistics, monitoring, or smart buildings.
Interconnects and connectors are important components for various electronics systems. Modern day electronics systems require smaller and more complex IC interconnects, connectors, and electronics packaging to help add convenience and flexibility to an end product.
To offer an extra layer of protection for swimmers, Raleigh, NC-based SEAL Innovation has created the SEAL wearable swim monitor and drowning detection system that issues warnings and alarms to lifeguards and parents for swimmers in distress.
To deliver a great customer experience, operators are building next-gen networks capable of handling explosive volumes of traffic, even as subscribers continuously change devices, download applications, and find new ways to communicate.
