Leveraging C-band for 5G Wireless Connectivity

For 5G to offer an experience that’s noticeably better than 4G, it needs broad, dedicated channels, which is where C-band comes in. But what exactly is C-band, and what does it mean for the future of 5G wireless connectivity? Here we’ve outlined some of the top questions people have on the subject, alongside some answers […]

Why Containers are the Edge Compute Strategy of the Future

The introduction of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) highlighted the value of data in the industrial space. From sending small amounts of operational data for remote monitoring and diagnostics, the industry quickly grew to the centralization of huge amounts of asset and process data for analysis. Suddenly, oil and gas companies could remotely monitor […]

Which Communication Standard is Right for Your IoT Deployment?

The Internet of Things (IoT) has grown rapidly as organizations from all sectors seek to streamline operations, improve the flow of information from their assets to their cloud applications, and gain tighter control over their businesses.
