    6/25/2018

    Much like the 2017 event, this month’s IEEE International Microwave Symposium 2018 (IMS) was abuzz with talk of 5G applications, rollouts, and developments. But nowhere was that focus more singular than Monday’s (June 12) 5G summit, whose speaker lineup looked like a connectivity all-star roster.

  2. 3 Common Pitfalls Of 802.11ax DVT (That Test Developers Should Avoid)
    4/2/2018

    The transition from previous 802.11 standards, such as 802.11n and 802.11ac, to 802.11ax adds several new technologies and performance requirements that need to be fully tested. However, there are a number of challenges in designing these test scenarios.

  3. Loose Lips Sink Gifts And Spaceships

    How much do the FCC’s RF spectrum auctions foster competition, benefit consumers, or spur development of new components and technologies?

  6. Satellite M2M, The IoT, And The Public Sector
    9/25/2017

    As machine-to-machine and Internet of Things technologies grow congruent with daily life, satellite-based IoT is increasingly relevant to the mix. Given that IoT devices are primarily used to eliminate the need for human interface, as well as provide real-time automated monitoring and control across distances, it’s often essential to enable its functioning in remote regions that lie outside the range of terrestrial network coverage.
