    Satellite M2M, The IoT, And The Public Sector

    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.

Demystifying 5G – V5GTF Crest Factor Reduction (CFR) - A Simple Way Out? Demystifying 5G – V5GTF Crest Factor Reduction (CFR) - A Simple Way Out?

High peak-to-average power ratios (PAPRs) are not beneficial as they challenge the non-linear power amplifier operation close to compression in order to reach maximum efficiency. Possible solutions for include crest factor reductions (CFR), such as clipping high signal peaks. This video demonstrates a simple technique to clip any waveform, including the Verizon Wireless 5GTF signal, with the use of software tools for signal generation and analysis.
