In the U.S. early commercial 5G launches from Verizon and AT&T are focused on the consumer segment. But, given the ultra-high capacity and incredibly low latency 5G will bring, there’s real value in leveraging next-generation cellular to provide enterprises and industries with a bigger data pipe.
There are hundreds if not thousands of efforts going on every year to get more people into the world of computer science. This week the National Coding Week kicks off, and unlike Computer Science Education Week, this event is meant to engage everyone of all ages in digital events and coding.
The ability to extend network connectivity to vehicles has significantly improved the way that countless organizations do business, with modern vehicles from ambulances to mass transit cars and school buses now containing multiple connected devices like tablets, video cameras, and payment systems.
As of October 1, Verizon expects to be the first U.S. provider of next-generation 5G wireless services. Today, Verizon and Cradlepoint announced a partnership to offer a “Pathway to 5G for Business” that will combine Cradlepoint hardware and services with Verizon’s 5G and LTE Advanced networks.
Forty years ago, the only technology the police force needed was the radio and the location of the nearest pay phone. Today, officers get all of their information digitally. It’s no longer received by telephone like you see in the movies. Police radios scan dozens of channels, as there are multiple outlets to monitor.
Much of the technology we take for granted today stems from 50 years ago. In 1968 we saw Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore launch pioneering semiconductor company, Intel, as well as the first large-scale test of RAND researcher Paul Baran’s distributed communications network ARPANET.
The rise of education technology - in conjunction with the ever-increasing reliability, performance, agility, and cost-effectiveness of fourth-generation long term evolution (4G LTE) networking - is giving schools the green light to expand their capabilities with new, exciting applications.
2018 is the year in which carriers will begin launching 5G commercially in limited markets while at the same time they are broadly deploying a pathway to 5G services. In February, AT&T announced that Dallas, Atlanta and Waco would be among the first cities to experience the much-anticipated networks.
Technology brings innovation and over the years we have seen it filter through to almost every aspect of our lives, affecting organisations both large and small, personal lifestyles, government operations and scientific and medical advancements. With this in mind, we have taken a look at how technology has evolved in the past 50 years.
No network provides coverage in all locations, but the Emergency Drop Kit announced yesterday by AT&T soon will let FirstNet users take network connectivity with them virtually anywhere, providing a 300-foot-radius Wi-Fi “bubble” supported by backhaul that can switch seamlessly between satellite and LTE connections.
