WPA2: WiFi Previous Access, WiFi Past Access

| December 5, 2018

An internal or external person tries to connect to a company’s WiFi network. In theory, this connection is something that should happen almost automatically given the daily activities of a salesperson, external consultant, delivery person, security guard, restaurant server, or really any type of employee. There’s no point in making it painful or inconvenient to connect to a WiFi network just for the sake of it. WiFi fears aside, despite the complications many administrators experience regularly, controlling the who, what, when, and how of WiFi access can actually be made quite simple.

How 5G can build the connected industry of the future

Article | August 17, 2021

Despite a global pandemic and the associated economic challenges, the world has moved to 5G four times faster than it did with 4G LTE, according to 5G Americas. In the midst of this rollout, how can industries ensure that the benefits of 5G investment warrant the long-term investment costs? Or to put it another way, how can industries leverage 5G technology to build cost-efficient connected industry on a global scale? The answer is the intelligent edge. The intelligent edge is the analysis of data and development of solutions at the site where the data is generated. By doing this, the intelligent edge reduces latency, costs and security risks, thus making the associated business more efficient. As 5G puts compute closer to the user (whether that be a human or a device) it enables a new paradigm of capabilities with AI, machine learning and a host of related use cases.

FCC Votes to Auction Mid-Band Spectrum for 5G

Article | August 17, 2021

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted on a final order Feb. 28 to auction mid-band spectrum for use by providers of 5G wireless services, but the vote spurred some criticism from members of both parties in Congress. The auction is scheduled for December 2020. The FCC, in a 3 to 2 vote, ordered that 280 megahertz of spectrum in the C-band be cleared no later than December 2025 so it can be repurposed for 5G providers. The spectrum is now used by satellite service providers, who are in line to receive $9.7 billion if they clear the spectrum early.

Four reasons why NB-IoT is the enabler of mass IoT apps and tracking

Article | August 17, 2021

Everyone understands the need to track and trace and tracking was one of the first apps that kick-started the M2M industry at scale about two decades ago. It now encompasses everything from routine shipments to monitoring of high value equipment and has even further proved its worth in the pandemic, enabling tracking of essential shipments and cold chain logistics for vaccines. With narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) now rolling out across the world, the technology is powering tracking applications for the mass-market, bringing new capabilities and functions to tracking and opening up new markets and use cases. Four essential attributes of NB-IoT, in addition to the fundamental ability of throughput, were discussed in a recent Quectel webinar

5G Challenges: Exploring the Biggest Challenges for 5G Deployment

Article | August 17, 2021

5G promises exciting advances for communications service providers (CSPs), but the 5G rollout is going to be challenging. CSPs must rapidly build out dense, low-latency edge networks in ways that are affordable, secure, and easily maintainable. CSPs are looking toward open-source, container-based network infrastructures that meet the 5G latency, reliability, and flexibility requirements while being inexpensive to deploy and maintain.
