Timing the Calliope LTE Platform

With the introduction of a category 1 LTE chipset solution targeting ultra low-cost and low-power applications including wearables and M2M, Sequans’ Calliope LTE Platform is addressing the market for highly-cost-sensitive devices that don’t require the high throughput of its Colibri solution.

How Do You Say “Social Networking” in M2M: Swarming

I particularly like one of the definitions for the word “swarm” that can be found in the Merriam Webster dictionary: “A large number of animate or inanimate things massed together and usually in motion.” Swarms of individual animals, such as birds, can attain incredible mass, involving thousands moving in lockstep with each other.

Altair Takes on M2M/IoT: Why LTE Is Future-Proof Technology

LTE continues to gain a stronger foothold in automotive, healthcare, wearables, energy, and the list goes on. As companies continue to prepare for the next big wave and the leading carriers look to sunset their legacy 2G and 3G networks for a more robust global standard, single-mode chipmakers and M2M/IoT providers are tapping into their devices.

Are We Losing Control of Cybersecurity?

As a regular reader of my column you know that I have been talking about cybersecurity a lot during the past 18 months, and with reason. Sadly, corporate security breaches have reached an all-time high.
