The IRIS-W1 module from u-blox lets IoT devices connect over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth while supporting Thread and Matter protocols. IoT module company u-blox has announced the IRIS-W1, which the company claims is the first stand-alone Wi-Fi module to combine dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) 5.3, and Thread including support for Matter protocols. Based […]
Customize private 5G networks for application requirements
5G private networks show potential for a wide range of diverse applications. Engineers can implement features to address the requirements of markets such as manufacturing and non-terrestrial networks.
Our second 5G Handbook is now available
Featuring 15 articles, the 2022 5G Handbook looks at private networks, timing, connectivity, latency, mmWaves, test, and other topics.
Mitigate mmWave test costs in 5G smartphones
The economics of manufacturing test directly affect how you plan for the right number of test stations and test sites. Adding mmWave testing makes the difference.
Orchestration at the edge reduces network latency
Edge computing brings benefits to users by reducing network latency, thus improving services, but needs management orchestration. Here, we demonstrate how orchestration improves latency in an automotive edge-computing use case by reallocating network resources. Multi-access edge computing (MEC), commonly called “edge computing,” moves data processing to the edge of communication networks. Bringing computing close to…
Battery backup chemistries for 5G small-cell sites
As the number of cell sites increase and their sizes decrease, engineers have options to consider for battery backup. Differing battery chemistries offer more choices and different performance levels. Selecting the right battery chemistry for each application is critical to ensure reliable, long lasting, and cost-effective power delivery.
Measurements show 5G improves latency in public networks
Measurements on public networks at our facilities demonstrate how 5G’s lower latency compared to LTE can improve industrial applications.
5G Reshapes mobile RF design strategies
Steep learning curves in RF mmWave antenna design demand collaboration and technology understanding beyond sub-6 GHz strategies.
How RedCap fits into 5G and IoT
Targeted at IoT applications, the reduced-capability in 5G will support a wide range of devices and applications that don’t need high speed, but do need low latency and high-reliability. 5G’s real promise comes not from mobile phones, but from industrial and business applications where network operators hope to recover the huge investments they’ve made in…
Private 5G: What is it? How does it work?
Private networks, whether operated by users or by wireless carriers, requires radios, addressing, timing, and automation to make them run.
