Meet Delta Sharing: Access more data with secure, open source data sharing

Article | May 26, 2021

If we’ve learned anything in the past year, it’s how much our progress hinges on the ability to share and collaborate around data.During the pandemic, we watched as scientists from around the world raced to develop COVID-19 vaccines in record time. A process that typically takes 10 to 15 years took less than a year—due in part to global collaboration and data sharing. As we transition to the post-COVID-19 era, the “need for speed has never been greater,” says McKinsey. The organizations that will thrive in this new economy will facilitate collaboration, empower individuals and teams, and build impactful partnerships. That success requires shifting from the traditional “don’t share data unless” mindset to a data-sharing mindset grounded in a solid foundation of technology, data-driven culture, and processes.

AT&T expands its 5G network to 22 new cities and introduces mmWave 5G+ in some markets

Article | March 5, 2020

This is the same 5G technology that Verizon is using, and it requires customers to be in very specific locations to connect to it. But when you can get it, AT&T promises speeds up to 2Gbps. Only the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra support mmWave on AT&T and not the carrier’s variant of the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G. The company’s mmWave network, which they are calling “5G+,” is available in 35 cities. Last month, AT&T expanded its coverage of sub-6GHz 5G to more cities. This week, they are adding 22 more markets to the list, bringing the total number up to 80. Those markets include:

Nokia expands WING with 5G IoT capabilities

Article | March 18, 2020

In a recent release, Nokia announced that it is evolving its Worldwide IoT Network Grid (WING) managed service to add 5G and edge capabilities. This upgrade reportedly facilitates operators in offering 5G IoT services without having to invest in global infrastructure. WING is designed to help operators capture early IoT market share without having to make investments in infrastructure because of a pay-as-you-go business model designed to allow the scaling of 5G IoT services faster and more cost-effectively. With Nokia WING, operators will be able to leverage new business models and tap into industries such as connected cars, critical public services, and real-time industrial monitoring and control, as well as remote healthcare, the company said. Nokia has invested in a 5G WING lab in Dallas, Texas, to which operators around the globe can connect and begin testing 5G IoT use cases.
