Taoglas | February 24, 2023
On February 23, 2023, Taoglas®, a reputable provider of antennas and Internet of Things (IoT) components that solve complex engineering challenges, introduced three new invisible antennas with cellular, Wi-Fi, and GNSS technology compatibility. The TFX series is a lightweight, paper-thin, transparent alternative to traditional opaque antennas. The peel-and-stick antennas are ideal for public infrastructure, mobility, transportation, medical devices, and emerging IoT applications.
Individually or in custom combinations, the TFX62.A, TFX257.A, and TFX125.A can improve cellular, Wi-Fi, and GNSS antenna installations, respectively. Pre-applied adhesive and an enclosed carrier with a FAKRA connector make deployment simple. A hybrid transparent conductive film with sub-mm thickness is used to offer the same reliability and performance as opaque antennas.
Its low-profile design, robust construction, and customizability make it ideal for many scenarios. Example use cases include on-screen placement for parking meters and EV chargers, placement on windows for smart buildings, and in-vehicle connectivity with covertly placed antennas.
Global Head of Engineering at Taoglas®, Baha Badran shares, “At Taoglas, we continue to explore new manufacturing technologies and design techniques that help customers solve complex problems.” He added, “Our patented flex PCB antennas pushed technology boundaries, and the use of transparent mediums is our next step in IoT and connectivity innovation.”

Iridium | December 28, 2022
Cloud-native networked data services offer features such as scalability, flexibility, cost efficiency, high availability, and security and are designed to be used in cloud computing environments. With breakthrough innovations such as Iridium Messaging Transport (IMT), which enables the transmission of messages between devices or systems using the Iridium satellite network, organizations can get global coverage, low latency, high reliability, and robust security.
Iridium Communications has introduced a two-way cloud-native networked data service called Iridium Messaging Transport (IMT), which is designed to make it easier to add satellite connections to Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. The service is available to use over the Iridium Certus broadband service and provides an IP data transport service for small-to-moderate-sized messages, supporting satellite IoT applications.
The Iridium satellite network is made up of 66 low-Earth-orbit (LEO) satellites that can reach almost everywhere on Earth, even the oceans and the poles.
IMT is integrated with Iridium CloudConnect and Amazon Web Services and can reduce development costs and speed up time to market for new Iridium-connected IoT devices. The service is currently available for the Iridium Certus 100 service, with introductions for Iridium Certus 200, 350, and 700 planned for Q1 2023.
Overall, Iridium's cloud-native networked data service for satellite IoT connections is a safe and reliable way for businesses to connect their IoT devices to the Internet in a wide range of places and situations.
