As I stated in a previous column and on my radio show, 5G was pretty popular once again this year, but there was a different feeling in the air about it. Okay, I do agree there might have been some 5G fatigue from years of hype.
CES 2020 did not disappoint if you were looking for IoT (Internet of Things), AI (artificial intelligence), and almost any connected technologies you could only dream about and perhaps a few you might have never imagined. Toyota announced Woven City, a sort of “living laboratory” at the foot of Japan’s Mt. Fuji that will focus on developing and testing technologies in the realms of robotics, autonomous vehicles, smart construction and manufacturing, and smart homes.
Have you given much thought about what to expect from the Internet of tomorrow? Candidly, this topic has been foremost on my mind lately after I sat down with executives from Cisco to discuss the company’s vision of the Internet for the Future.
As technological innovation gains momentum, digital skills gaps may widen. Eventually, if not addressed, digital skills gaps could stunt growth and slow innovation. Intel recently released a study that delves into manufacturing, Industry 4.0, and hurdles to future-proofing a business, including skills gaps or skills shortages.
The benefits of MEC (multi-access edge computing) sound promising indeed. But what exactly is MEC, and how can it benefit industries like retail?
The IoT (Internet of Things) is driving new compute-intensive applications, and networks must be able to keep up.
Peggy and Stacy Schwartz, vice president, public safety and FirstNet sales, AT&T, discuss the importance of FirstNet, and how it is designed to improve communications across the U.S. public safety community and the milestones it has already achieved.
Taking the Smart Approach to a Healthy Cyber Lifestyle. The potential smart-city benefits of greater efficiency, sustainability, and responsiveness come at a price:
One of the topics that I’ve spent a considerable amount a time investigating lately is MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing).
Edge computing has been huge hot topic in 2019, and it will continue to be one in 2020. Edge computing brings computation and data storage to the network’s edge.
The supply chain is getting bigger and we are beginning to see an even greater intersection of blockchain technology and the supply chain.
For this column I want to talk about manufacturing, one of my favorite subjects. I have been writing about manufacturing for more than 20 years. If you have been following the space at all then you know the latest ISM (Institute for Supply Management) Manufacturing Index might be showing another month of contracting economic activity in the manufacturing sector.
Peggy and Emily Lyons Soelberg, vice president, product management, IoT (Internet of Things), AT&T, talk about how everything is getting connected and how the IoT will really change the trajectory of AT&T’s business.
One of biggest question marks in the wireless industry during the past couple of years has been the pending merger between T-Mobile and Sprint.
We are just about at the end of the year and readying ourselves to make predictions for the new decade, but before I start to do that, I thought we should look at what’s been happening in procurement, supply chain, and how the IoT (Internet of Things) is making an impact on business processes.
