5 Considerations When Choosing an IoT Connectivity Partner (4/5) – Security

#4 Security Hackers and other bad actors are constantly seeking (and finding) new vulnerabilities in networks, and access points to data and devices. “When companies are trying to determine how well connectivity providers can combat such intrusions, they should focus on three areas: infrastructure, endpoint security, and encryption techniques.” We all “know” we need to… View Article

#3 Reliability In addition to switching between networks globally, eUICC technology also enables static devices or devices with a small travel radius to steer to the best network, instead of the “primary” network. Obviously when you have one carrier, they will not send you to the competition simply because they have an extra bar of… View Article

5 Considerations When Choosing an IoT Connectivity Partner (2/5) – Switching

#2 Switching Downtime in IoT may refer to the time a device itself is inoperative, or to the time it spends offline. For mission-critical devices, this is nothing to take lightly, but for many devices, consistent coverage may be a crucial factor to a business case.  According to the Veeam Availability Report, downtime costs enterprise-sized… View Article

5G Is Damned Expensive and Not Here–Really

At the end of 2019 Ericsson estimated the number of 5G subscriptions to be only 12 million. Projections for the end of 2020 hover at a mere 84 million. Even if 2021 sees the projected 600+ million subscriptions, 5G will remain only a small fraction of all mobile subscriptions. Over the last decade, we’ve seen… View Article

Time Is Not On Your Side for IoT Security

IoT Vulnerabilities A Microsoft IoT study shows 97% of IoT adopters have concerns over security. Well, aren’t we all concerned about security? I believe so, but I don’t believe we are equally concerned. Companies are concerned because they hear that other companies (or the whole industry) are concerned about it. But do they really know… View Article
