5G Era The Internet of Everything Is Possible with Wi-Fi 6 and 5G in the Future

IoT Business News | March 16, 2020

With the increasing commercial use of 5G networks by global carriers, many 5G application scenarios are being realized. Among them, indoor network service is an application scenario in which consumers directly use 5G.General carriers traditionally provide users with wired broadband service through a telephone wire, optical fiber, coaxial cable or other media. However, it is impossible to provide high-quality network bandwidth services in some regions due to various reasons, such as inadequate infrastructure and sparse population. The emergence of 5G networks provides a new solution for carriers. The three major features of 5G, namely high bandwidth, low latency and massive connections, provide more wireless Internet service possibilities for carriers and users. It’s clear that the ultra-high speed of 5G networks is close to or even faster than the speed of existing average home broadband networks. Fiber-to-the-premises deployments are no longer necessary. Carriers only need a 5G CPE to provide users with high-speed Internet access.

Buildings IoT launches UK operations to help to build stakeholders reach net-zero by 2050

Buildings IoT | May 31, 2022

Buildings IoT, based in the United States, has opened offices in the United Kingdom to service the unique demands of building stakeholders in Europe, with the goal of decarbonizing buildings and advancing Net-Zero projects. Buildings IoT will market its IoT Jetstream smart building platform in the UK and across Europe to building owners, managers, investors, contractors, and systems integrators. Les Russell, Director of Business Development, is in charge of Buildings IoT's UK operation. Russell will be in charge of overseeing all primary partner connections, as well as providing assistance and raising the visibility of Buildings IOT across Europe. "Smart building technologies have reached an inflection point of maturity and performance, with speed to impact and a tangible ROI. The UK market is ripe with opportunity, thanks to the country's concerns over carbon reduction, indoor air quality, and financial due diligence requirements. The UK's goal to reach Net-Zero by 2050 is also a major driver of demand for proven solutions, including those from companies like Buildings IOT, that hold decades of domain expertise in both building infrastructure and platform technologies. I'm thrilled to be part of a team that recognises the UK as a global leader in sustainability and environmental consciousness, setting a high benchmark in energy efficiency standards for buildings," explains Russell, who has spent the last five years in the smart buildings industry. The Buildings IOT UK team will look for potential to improve occupant experience and realize overall operating efficiencies in a number of London-based commercial buildings, including office and manufacturing buildings. The organization will collaborate with important partners who have clients with specific ESG [environment, social, and governance] goals, as well as energy efficiency, sustainability, indoor air quality, security, and other operational factors. "We're happy to have Les on our team. His strong commercial background and business acumen made him a perfect fit. In his last role, Les identified Buildings IOT as a company to assist with a high-profile customer and a bespoke request around data optimisation. His belief in the Buildings IOT solution and understanding of what the UK market needed made it seem natural to bring Les on board," Gina Elliott, Chief Services Officer of Buildings IoT. Buildings IoT will expand its European presence by hiring engineers and customer success representatives in the United Kingdom. In addition, the company continues to use Agile development methods, enabling partners and customers to participate in the development of its smart building platform roadmap.

ARCHOS and Ossia Partner to Bring Innovative Wirelessly Powered Consumer IoT Products to Market

Ossia | November 17, 2021

ARCHOS, the French manufacturer that designs and democratizes products and mobile solutions with high innovation value, announces its partnership with Ossia Inc, the company behind Cota® Real Wireless Power™, the patented technology that delivers power over-the-air, at a distance, and without the need for line-of-sight, to bring wirelessly powered products to consumers by 2022. Ossia is changing the world with wireless power by untethering devices from cords and reducing or eliminating batteries. Positioned as a global standard for wireless power at a distance, Ossia's Cota technology will soon be in every home, office, car, store and place, offering never-before possible freedom of device placement, device innovation and the elimination of battery anxiety for personal devices. As the world turns to sustainable solutions for their electronic needs, Ossia's wireless power system offers a reduction in the carbon footprint currently being proliferated by an influx of devices needing expensive wiring and large, costly batteries. ARCHOS, which has been dedicated to innovating and revolutionize the portable consumer electronics market for years, will be offering products used every day, at home or in mobility, for which permanent charge is a must. The following solutions1 for initial wireless power deployment are targeted: Indoor wireless camera:For security or peace of mind purposes, consumers will be able to discretely place this camera anywhere in the home, without cable to install and without the worry of keeping it charged. Air quality & temperature station:Consumers will benefit from a device allowing them to know the Air Quality and temperature in any room. It will remain charged at all times, no matter if it is moved from one room to another or where the station is in the home. Smart Tracker:Easily clipped on any pet's necklace or in any bag, this tracker will automatically be located and wirelessly charged enough to get a few days of autonomy Smart Health watch:Battery autonomy quickly becoming the #1 priority for users, this smart watch, equipped with GPS, pedometer, ECG, Blood pressure, sleep quality, SOS, etc., will integrate power over the air and will never need to charge via a cable. Each product will be Cota-enabled to receive power over the air at a distance, without the need for user intervention, wires, batteries, or charging pads. The Cota system was selected by ARCHOS because of its unique ability to automatically track a device to send and receive information without the use of complex algorithms or the need to shut down when the path of delivery is interrupted, and for its ability to send RF-based power while avoiding people and pets. ARCHOS and Ossia plan to showcase the Cota-enabled ARCHOS devices at CES 2022. "This is the first time the general public will be able to experience the convenience and efficiency of wirelessly powered devices." said Loic Poirier, CEO at ARCHOS.
