Building a secure IoT

Building a secure IoT
IoT devices and the ecosystems they comprise are constantly exposed to a wide variety of rapidly evolving threats. By partnering with Kudelski, u-blox are doing its part to build a secure, sustainable Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things (IoT) depends, by definition, on creating an ecosystem of distributed devices that are connected over a communications infrastructure. This infrastructure can be private; often, however, it is the open internet.

Enable the digital transformation of the healthcare system

Enable the digital transformation of the healthcare system
The healthcare sector is facing a great change. And he comes at the right time. At $ 7.7 trillion in 2017, global healthcare costs are staggering. And an end is not yet in sight. In many developed countries, hospitals and other health care facilities are at full capacity. Outdated and inefficient processes in disease diagnosis, patient monitoring, treatment and follow-up, and the ineffective communication of patient data form the heart of the problem. The consequences are excessive costs, poor results and frequent, costly re-hospitalisations and health facilities.

Which tech will form the networked buildings of tomorrow?

Which tech will form the networked buildings of tomorrow?
As the pace of innovation continues, future smart buildings will be able to leverage a range of technologies, from established standard technologies to new and futuristic developments. So far, no single technology has established itself as the standard for intelligent buildings. For example, even relatively small implementations with only dozens of sensors often use several different communication protocols. And as the size of the building increases and the complexity of the network increases, the number of communication systems generally also increases.

Energy harvesting for 'net-zero-power' IoT devices

Energy harvesting for 'net-zero-power' IoT devices
NB‑IoT and other low power wide area technologies have made ten year battery lives a reality in applications with minimal data transmission. Others need some extra power, which is precisely where energy harvesting fits in. Imagine an IoT device that performs year in, year out, powered by a steady drip of power scavenged from its immediate surroundings.

What does 3GPP Release 14 means for NB-IoT and LTE-M?

What does 3GPP Release 14 means for NB-IoT and LTE-M?
It’s been about two years since 3GPP, the Standards Developing Organization that defines mobile communication standards, froze its 14th release. The release includes a number of improvements to NB‑IoT and LTE‑M, two cellular technologies that enable the cellular Internet of Things. Now that many of the features are supported by mobile network operators, cellular module manufacturers are announcing the first generation of Release 14 compliant low power wide area cellular modems.

5G will connect the Industry 4.0

5G will connect the Industry 4.0
Wireless communication is driving Industry 4.0 and 5G is at the forefront, with billions of machines, devices, and sensors just waiting to be connected. 5G plays such an important role that it is being designed with the industry’s needs specifically in mind. The thing with Industry 4.0, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), the connected industry – whatever you want to call it, one thing is undeniable: it is growing, and fast.

Preparation for 5G

Preparation for 5G
Ericsson predicts that by 2023 every active smartphone in the US will consume 48 gigabytes of data per month. This is roughly seven times higher than in 2017. In global markets, this trend is the same, driven by improvements in our smartphones, increasingly data-heavy content, and better, more affordable data plans.

WiFi 7: the next generation of WiFi technology

WiFi 7: the next generation of WiFi technology
When developing an industry standard, a mutually agreed solution is crucial. Often this is a slow, inefficient and frustrating process. It is therefore surprising that, recently and in rapid succession, a number of advances have been made by the WiFi Alliance and the IEEE Standards Association regarding the 802-standard for Wireless Local Area Networks, better known as WiFi.

GPS jamming and spoofing - the threat

GPS jamming and spoofing - the threat
What do cars, sports watches, mobile networks and stock exchanges have in common? All of them have benefited from satellite positioning - and have probably been changed by them, either to perform a geographic location or to synchronise distributed networks to exactly the same beat. But while GNSS technology has permeated every aspect of our lives (GNSS stands for Global Satellite Navigation System), its success has made it a target for people with bad intentions, from amateur thieves to military organisations.

Seven reasons why Bluetooth is perfect for Industrial IoT

Seven reasons why Bluetooth is perfect for Industrial IoT
Most of us use Bluetooth on a daily basis in some form, usually to connect things like our phones, smartwatches, headsets, mice, and keyboards. In fact, Bluetooth is now so widespread that the Special Interest Group (SIG) , which monitors the standards, has forecast an incredible 5.2 billion deliveries of Bluetooth devices by 2022. With all the buzz about Bluetooth in the consumer segment, the fact that it is incredibly well-suited for smart, industrial use is paying less attention.

Simplification of smart metering through Bluetooth

Simplification of smart metering through Bluetooth
Smart metres play a key role in the digital transformation of cities. Without smart metres, it is difficult to envisage many of the smart utilities and services that will ensure the attractiveness of tomorrow's cities: improved resource efficiency, increased capacity for renewable energy sources, better management of public utilities, and higher overall urban resilience.
