Chinese semiconductor industry is speeding up advanced chip development

Total Telecom | April 21, 2021, 9 p.m.

China's semiconductor industry is growing from strength to strength. The country has accelerated its efforts to advance its semiconductor industry in the wake of increasing geopolitical tensions with the US.A case in point is China's newly acquired capability to produce 28-nanometer chip wafers. This is likely to mature this year and is a crucial step in developing competencies for advanced chipmaking technologies. It is a sign that the country is fast developing high-end skills in chip manufacturing. Production of 28nm chip is not the only instance of the growing capabilities of Chinese chipmakers. Some Chinese companies have shifted its 14nm chipset orders from the market leader Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to China's Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMIC)…read more on TotalTele.com »

"We are at the cusp of building a new 5G ecosystem that is embracing all sectors of the economy"

Total Telecom | April 20, 2021, 9 p.m.

 We recently caught up with Orange's Arnaud Vamparys to discuss the opportunities the ongoing 5G rollout offers network operators, ahead of our upcoming virtual event 5GLIVE. 1.What has been the biggest success of 5G rollout so far? Despite the disruptions brought about by the covid pandemic across economies and societies, we have been able to continue to launch 5G in five of our European countries. This has proved particularly important at a time when connectivity is proving indispensable to so many people. Launching 5G has enabled us to bring additional capacity to urban areas where 4G is heavily used and it is helping to anticipate the demand and opportunity for developing new uses and innovation.  Our industry ecosystem has also played a significant part in helping to make 5G more accessible to consumers. For example, consumers now have easy access to a wide range of 5G compatible smartphones, at different prices, and this is helping to further democratize 5G and give people the benefits of speeds of up to 3 to 4 times faster than they had previously…read more on TotalTele.com »

By 2026, the 23 Billion IoT Connections will Present New Threat Vectors and Generate US$16 Billion in IoT Security Revenues

ABI Research | April 20, 2021, 9:30 a.m.

Today there are 8.6 billion IoT connections. By 2026, that number will nearly triple to 23.6 billion. In its new whitepaper, Connected & Protected: The Vulnerabilities and Opportunities of IoT Security, global tech market advisory firm ABI Research explores how the exponential growth in IoT connections will usher in a new era of connectivity and productivity along with a slew of new threat vectors and vulnerabilities. At the same time, the looming security gaps offer a tremendous revenue potential for players in IoT security.“Concerns about security of the Internet of Things (IoT) are widespread,” says Michela Menting, Digital Security Research Director at ABI Research. Security gaps run the gamut from devices that are incapable of being secured to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and vendors often choosing to accept the risk rather than remediate it, as well as functional safety-type IoT devices that prioritize availability and cannot simultaneously ensure confidentiality. “There are limited IoT security solutions in the market, due in large part to the fragmented nature of the IoT itself,” Menting explains.While these security gaps pose a significant challenge for companies and end-users, they also represent a tremendous opportunity for players in the IoT space, including IoT service providers, vendors, platform operators, and Information Technology (IT)/Operational Technology (OT) security organizations. “Much like the number of IoT connections is set to explode, so too is the revenue opportunity in IoT security. ABI Research market data shows that total revenue in the space will reach US$16.8 billion by 2026,” Menting says.The sheer number of new IoT connections over the next 5 years, the increased digitization capabilities of certain IoT markets (e.g., utilities, industrial, infrastructure, and smart cities), the increase in connected users and assets along with the increased connectivity needs brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic are all fair predictors for digital security overall.The amount of IoT security revenue, however, does not always correlate with the amount of IoT connections, and some markets are expected to experience disproportional revenue. Menting points out, “This is due to the multi-faceted level of security and management requirements that provide the foundation for other key operations and valuable services, including for intelligence operations and analytics, life cycle management and predictive maintenance, firmware updates, and device and data integrity.”“ABI Research forecasts that digital security services will enter the Return on Investment (ROI) equation significantly faster in the next 3 years, as both security vendors and IoT players will better understand how to protect the key monetization applications related to their IoT strategies,” Menting concludes.To learn more about IoT security, what is driving the revenue, and ABI Research’s strategic recommendations for companies and end-users, download Connected & Protected: The Vulnerabilities and Opportunities of IoT Security.
