Overlook 5G security at your peril

May 2018 – 5G is being hailed as the next big thing in the telecoms world. It’s seen as the enabler for IoT applications such as autonomous vehicles, healthcare solutions, and robotics – the future in other words, all thanks to its increased data speeds with incredibly low latency. With the number of worldwide 5G connections set to hit 1.4 billion by 2025 , you can understand why its imminent rollout is also music to the ears of equipment manufacturers. Once fully implemented, the likes of Apple and Samsung will be using the “5G enabled” tagline as a key selling-point to an ever-growing smartphone market.  Continue reading Overlook 5G security at your peril

The IoT Explosion

What can network operators learn from SMS when implementing IoT

February 2018 – The Internet of Things market is growing at an exponential rate. It’s set to quadruple in size, growing from $900 billion in 2014 to $4.3 trillion by 2024 , with more than 30 billion connected devices in use. But the huge number of devices and subscribers accessing the network will have consequences for operators. Operators will need to prioritise traffic – can you imagine if the smart grid were to stop working to prioritise advertising boards? Continue reading The IoT Explosion

The IoT phenomenon will equate to nothing if the industry fails to connect the dots

December 2017 – The Internet of Things is no longer the future. It’s very much the present and the market is growing at an exponential rate. It’s set to quadruple in size, growing from $900 billion in 2014 to $4.3 trillion by 2024 , with more than 30 billion connected devices in use. Approximately 7.5 billion of those devices will access a cellular IoT core network, which is three times greater than the number of LTE-connected smartphones today. Service providers have faced waves of game changing technologies influenced by end user demand over the past 20 years, including the rise of SMS and the explosion of Over-The-Top (OTT) applications on smartphones, and IoT is in the same bracket, if not out on its own as the future of the technology world.
