Your IoT devices may soon have a new network to connect to in order to transmit data directly to the cloud. AT&T has completed its nationwide rollout of its LTE-M Internet of Things (IoT) network. This rollout, which involved a software update to AT&T’s existing LTE network, enables IoT devices to connect from more places, […]
In addition to contributing to the exponential increase in data, security concerns, and strain on enterprise networks, the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) is creating demand for upgraded wireless sensor nodes in the enterprise. And as IoT becomes more prevalent in the enterprise, the ease with which we as IT professionals can deploy […]
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing at a rapid rate and telecommunications giant Verizon wants a large slice of the cake, with the aim of $1 billion in sales by 2017. Over the past year, it has made a few large purchases to bolster its position in the market. It acquired fleet management firm […]
Until wireless power goes mainstream, the Internet of Things (IoT) will fail to reach its potential. And by “wireless power,” I don’t mean the power pads that masquerade as wireless chargers. True wireless power eliminates the need for all power cables and contact. It resembles Wi-Fi in its ubiquity, safety, and range. Essentially, there’s a […]
In a technological advance that could drastically extend the global reach of wireless web access, AT&T Labs unveiled a project to deliver ultra-fast wireless broadband over power lines. The research and development wing of U.S. communications giant AT&T unveiled Project AirGig today. The company said the project is still deep in the experimentation stage but […]
Smart technologies promise to connect us to our environment in new and exciting ways, but this increased connection comes at a cost. As more devices go online and transmit mass amounts of data to the cloud, the cloud itself needs to be capable of quickly receiving, analyzing, and returning that data. During his keynote at […]
Modular wireless connectivity may be coming to cars in the “a few years,” allowing cars to talk to other cars, connected roads, and parking lots. Car component supplier Lear is looking to become the major player in this market, after acquiring Arada Systems and Autonet Mobile, two firms that developed wireless connectivity inside cars. See […]
Wireless broadband is an essential part of the United States’ digital infrastructure. Millions of Americans are presently connected to 4G and LTE networks, but with a swarm of new IoT devices demanding resources from these networks, the White House is taking steps to give development of a new generation of wireless devices a boost. The Advanced […]
WiFi has become so omnipresent that losing signal for five minutes feels like the end of civilisation, but there may be a new contender on the horizon that uses light instead of radio waves to send data. PureLiFi, a spin out project from the University of Edinburgh, was created in 2011 by professor of mobile […]
Though the Internet of Things (IoT) is heralded as a future money spinner for industries far and wide, one analyst says telcos won’t see 5G-related windfalls from IoT any time soon. As reported by RCRwireless, New Street Research partner Andrew Entwistle dumped cold water on the future of IoT and its relationship to 5G wireless […]
Internet of Things (IoT) connections will surpass mobile by 2018, according to communications giant Ericsson. In the firm’s annual Mobility Report, it said IoT connections will climb by 23 per cent annually for the next five years, hitting 16 billion in 2021.

Arduino has announced two new developer boards aimed at the Internet of Things (IoT) community, called the Primo and Otto. It comes just one month after the MKR1000 was announced worldwide. The Primo is Arduino’s first IoT computing board to feature all the traditional wireless standards, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth low-energy, near-field communications (NFC), and […]
Smart cities may look towards open wireless standards to save billions in Internet of Things (IoT) deployment costs. Choosing open standards could cut costs by 30 percent and promote more cities to utilize IoT, according to Machina Research. The market intelligence firm predicts that by 2025 smart cities may spend $1.12 trillion on deploying smart tech, […]
Semiconductor firm Cypress has announced a $550 million acquisition of Broadcom’s Internet of Things (IoT) division. It comes on the same day Cypress CEO T.J. Rodgers revealed his intention to step down as leader of the company he founded, after 34 years in charge. The acquisition includes Broadcom’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee IoT products and […]
A recent conference focused on the world of Wi-Fi highlighted the immense opportunity created by the blossoming of the Internet of Things (IoT) space, as long as the wireless industry can keep pace with IoT’s rapid growth. RCR Wireless News reported that IoT was the hot topic at the Wi-Fi Now 2016 conference held recently […]
French wireless communications firm Sigfox has announced a collaboration with Microsoft’s Azure Internet of Things (IoT) hub. The collaboration allows Sigfox customers to use Microsoft Azure IoT for real-time analytics and automation of operations, while also utilizing Sigfox’s low-power, wide area communications network (LPWAN) to make an IoT system affordable and reliable.
