(IDT) (NASDAQ: IDTI) announced today its collaboration with IoT40 Systems to expand its 6LoWPAN wireless radio frequency technology and sensor devices in Europe by leveraging IoT40 Systems' Caberra software platform to deliver a complete and highly secured IoT solution for smart factory, building, and city lighting customers.

  10. Enduring ‘Radio Rebound’ Powered By Jets From Gamma-Ray Burst

    Astronomers using ALMA studied a cataclysmic stellar explosion known as a gamma-ray burst, or GRB, and found its enduring “afterglow.” The rebound, or reverse shock, triggered by the GRB’s powerful jets slamming into surrounding debris, lasted thousands of times longer than expected. These observations provide fresh insights into the physics of GRBs, one of the universe’s most energetic explosions.
