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.
Whether it’s a matter of national security or commercial success, a space plane or a sensor, brilliant people regularly refrain from trumpeting their astounding scientific achievements. It's not always easy or popular, but it's necessary, and I tip my hat top you, secret-keepers.
NR is billed as a more capable air interface, and will need to operate in both the frequencies below 6 GHz and above 24 GHz (mmWave) with a frame structure supporting both TDD and FDD, as well as operate in both licensed and unlicensed spectrum.
How much do the FCC’s RF spectrum auctions foster competition, benefit consumers, or spur development of new components and technologies?
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.
Flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) is a category of microelectronics using novel materials with stretchable, conformable, and flexible form factors. FHE enables wearables, medical Internet of Things (IoT) applications, defense applications, and more by shifting from electronics based on rigid and fragile circuit boards to flexible electronics components mounted on substrates, such as plastics and textiles.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) plans to relax existing rules governing the deployment of small cells needed to run upcoming 5G networks across the United States.
University of Washington engineers have 3D-printed plastic objects that do not require batteries or electronics to transmit data to other devices. Instead, these objects ‘talk’ to each other using embedded antennas that reflect ambient radio signals.
The United States Government Accountability Office (U.S. GAO) urges the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to monitor the increasing number of high bandwidth and unlicensed-spectrum devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). GAO says this would give FCC a leg up in ensuring adequate radio frequency (RF) spectrum is available for all stakeholders.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is picking up the pace in its drive to meet 5G usage in the United States by making available an additional 1.7 GHz of high-frequency spectrum, which will facilitate carriers’ plans to deploy next-generation mobile broadband services by 2020.
It is estimated that by 2020 more than 26 billion devices will be connected to the internet of things (IoT). By using cellular telecommunications bands and existing wireless networks, a low power wide area network (LPWAN) radio technology standard known as narrowband IoT (NBIoT) will be used to support a wide range of IoT devices and services.
A team of scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed a way to wirelessly deliver light into deep regions of the body to activate light-sensitive drugs for photodynamic therapy (PDT).
In two years, the world may see a revolutionary solution to the century-old approach of allocating bands for specific use on the radio frequency spectrum. Vanderbilt may help solve the problem.
The "2018 IoT and Embedded AI Chip Platform and Eco Strategy Conference" will be held on December 8, 2017 at Intercontinental Hotel Beijing Beichen as one of the sub-forums at the "2017 IoT Developers Conference".
Baidu, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIDU) and Chinese consumer technology company Xiaomi today announced that the companies have entered into a partnership to establish in-depth cooperation, leveraging the two companies' strengths in artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) in order to offer an enhanced experience to users in consumer electronics and smart devices.
NASA’s newest communications antenna became operational today following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Alaska Satellite Facility in Fairbanks. The antenna will increase the agency’s communications support to Earth-observing missions.
The most demanding 5G applications will require fiber for each small cell, but the exact fiber cable requirements for each deployment will differ based on local geography and expected demand. This paper discusses the use of fiber in 5G technologies, as well as how to calculate the amount of fiber needed for 5G in metropolitan areas.
The key to improving energy efficiency lies, fundamentally, in the use of active antennas. However, duplex operation of cellular phones greatly distorts the desired performance of active antennas. To correct this, one must deploy self-diplexed antennas.
As 5G technologies bring commercial applications into the microwave and mm-Wave bands, new challenges must be met to provide safety and security to armed forces and civilians alike.
The smart home revolution has taken a lot longer to get up and running due to the disagreements over what protocols and platforms should be used in the base technologies, as well as the poor choices in consumer words like “smart home” and “IoT.”
This white paper covers relevant trends and examples of innovative automotive sensors that support closed-loop control functions in exhaust gas after-treatment, transmission, and battery monitoring.
Successful medical device and pharmaceutical companies are using engineering simulation to develop systems that ensure high reliability, provide data privacy, and achieve regulatory compliance quickly.
On the front line of the most frequently attacked IoT solutions are resource-limited embedded devices. These devices, unlike their PC or Internet counterparts, need to have their own unique security methods to defend their ever growing platforms.
In order to design autonomous drones, wearables, self-driving automobiles, or smart industrial equipment using the Internet of Things (IoT), engineers need to take into account the amount of stress these products will encounter in harsh conditions. Many types of damage can have negative impacts like shortening the lifespan, causing warranty or repair expenses, and increasing liability risk. ANSYS simulation is created to help identify potential product failure early in the design process, which enables the anticipation of potential design problems and optimizes each product. This article describes the advantages of using ANSYS simulation for simulating severe conditions such as vibration, impact, and fatigue, with examples and images.
