Will SD-WAN Solve IoT’s Toughest Questions?

Sdxcentral | January 16, 2020

IoT and SD-WAN might not sound like they belong together, but ask VMware’s VeloCloud or managed service provider Apcela and you might be surprised by what they have to say. The two companies see SD-WAN as the key to making large IoT deployments manageable at a human scale.Sanjay Uppal, who co-founded VeloCloud and now serves as the head of VMware’s SD-WAN division, said the expanding scope of SD-WAN has opened the door to several applications that the technology wouldn’t normally be associated with, and IoT is one of them. “You think of IoT, it’s not just IoT running on a cellular network or IoT running on Bluetooth, you could absolutely run IoT on your enterprise SD-WAN,” Uppal said in an earlier interview. “Just think of that IoT traffic as a new data type that you will steer across the WAN and you can add services to it as it is steered.”

Synaptics Introduces Low-Power, Highly Accurate GNSS IC to Power IoT Devices

Synaptics | January 04, 2023

The SYN4778 is a small, low-power, and accurate global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) integrated circuit (IC) for the Internet of Things (IoT). Synaptics Incorporated announced it. The SYN4778 is made to provide accurate positioning and navigation for a wide range of IoT applications, such as smart cities, connected cars, asset tracking, and smart homes. The chip uses 80% less power than similar devices and is 30% smaller, and it is also 50% more accurate. It is meant to improve the battery life and performance of location-based services in IoT devices like wearables, mobile accessories, asset tracking systems, drones, and transportation navigation. “Low-power GNSS chips are key to opening up the market to a wide variety of IoT products where battery life is important. Many of these applications also have size constraints while still requiring the highest possible performance to accommodate advanced services. The key differentiation GNSS ICs can provide means discrete implementations for IoT products continue to form a significant portion of the total market for GNSS chips.” Phil Solis, research director at IDC The SYN4778 is made to be used in applications with the least amount of power, giving GNSS and location-based services a higher level of accuracy. The SYN4778 chip is a reliable positioning and navigation solution for IoT applications because it is more accurate and uses less power. The SYN4778 uses an advanced 7-nm semiconductor process and on-chip power management to use less power. Its use of the L1 and L5 satellite bands cuts the time to the first fix by 35% and the power used for the first fix by 72%. It also has advanced multipath interference mitigation using L5 band signals from different satellite systems, LTE jamming and signal filtering, and support for multiple operating systems.
