The ideal communications network is invisible to the user. In the same way that we no longer worry about the reliability, performance or security of electrical circuits when switching on a light, we have always strived for that same instant access to our data, applications and services, wherever and whenever we choose. With 5G, this long-sought yet elusive goal finally promises to become a reality, ushering in new possibilities and opportunities, the extent of which seems limited only by our imagination.

5 Ways to Secure Your IoT Devices—Before They Get Hacked

Article | March 13, 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) devices make our lives more efficient and our day-to-day more convenient. They allow us to monitor our homes from afar, control our lights, thermostats, and locks and beef up the security of our homes—among a host of other things. But because smart devices have become so integrated into our lives, they leave us vulnerable to cybercrime too. In general, IoT devices have little to no built-in security, making them top targets for hackers. And since most IoT devices are interconnected, it puts your whole suite of devices at risk if even one gets hacked. Just as you lock your front door before you go to bed, you’ll want to make sure your IoT devices are secure before you start using them.

Future ‘smart walls’ key to IoT

Article | March 13, 2020

IoT equipment designers shooting for efficiency should explore the potential for using buildings as antennas, researchers say. Environmental surfaces such as walls can be used to intercept and beam signals, which can increase reliability and data throughput for devices, according to MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).Researchers at CSAIL have been working on a smart-surface repeating antenna array called RFocus. The antennas, which could be applied in sheets like wallpaper, are designed to be incorporated into office spaces and factories. Radios that broadcast signals could then become smaller and less power intensive.
