Earlier this year, the IEEE released its 802.11ax Enhancements for High Efficiency Wireless (HEW) LAN standard, known commonly as Wi-Fi 6.
IDTechEx Research suggested the 5G rollout will accelerate the growth of the telecommunications, automotive, manufacturing and entertainment industries.
Telecommunication operators are optimistic about the future services 5G will enable, but over 90% also fear it will result in much higher energy costs, according to new research.
pureLiFi has announced it will present the first Gigabit LiFi components in a commercial device at Mobile World Congress (MWC) later this month.
The GE MDS Orbit industrial wireless router platform is designed to offer the security, reliability, performance and wireless flexibility required for next-generation industrial networks.
Buildings may soon be able to monitor themselves, report problems autonomously and even talk to smartphones with the rollout of an IoT solution known as EMIoT.
The technology aims to allow cellular communication nodes in 5G systems to partition bandwidth more efficiently to improve end-to-end data transmission rates.
Scottish technology company pureLiFi recently presented its Li-Fi technology as a symbol of UK innovation at China's International Import Expo (CIIE).
Growing market interest and the development of a new global standard mean Li-Fi technology is one step closer to becoming commercialised.
The fifth-generation wireless network is expected to fast-track the smart city, but there is still more to be done to prepare for 5G in the smart city space.
With more businesses, public spaces and educational institutions offering Wi-Fi, understanding how to troubleshoot Wi-Fi network issues is crucial. There is an expectation for Wi-Fi networks to work seamlessly. When they don’t, it can be frustrating both for users and for network engineers.
Daniel Saffioti, CIO of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, had been told for years his property in Haywards Bay, NSW (south of Wollongong), was not eligible for NBN access, despite the fact that a fibre (FTTP) pillar was installed directly opposite his home. When his neighbours started getting NBN access via FTTN, he took matters into his own hands.
We could soon overcome the issues with charging smart devices, according to new research from University of Washington (UW), Duke University (DU) and the Intellectual Ventures' Invention Science Fund (ISF).
With safety and speed of resolution in mind, field engineers across the globe can now solve customer issues with a clear connection back to the office via FieldVision HD, a video communication platform for maintenance and inspection personnel from Neox.
Organisations must make strategic changes to effectively secure wired and wireless LANs while supporting business applications for use on mobile and desktop devices alike. This means taking a 'mobile-first' mentality.
