Putting sustainability at the heart of local authority decisions

Total Telecom | Sept. 16, 2021, 9 p.m.

2021 kicks off what is widely referred to as ‘the climate decade’. A ten-year period where our collective actions will determine the kind of world our children and grandchildren will inherit. ‘Collective’ is the critical factor here because no person, business or Government can tackle climate change single-handedly.Sustainability is increasingly topping the agenda of many organisations and rightly so. In the run up to climate talks later this year, we’re starting to see momentum, but much more needs to be done.The UK and the US have both announced ambitious climate change commitments ahead of the COP26 summit in November, and real change is taking place at a local level, with 230 local authorities across England and Wales declaring a climate emergency, with two-thirds of those in England committing to being carbon neutral by 2030. Among growing calls for the Government to place more power into local hands to help tackle the issue, decisions taken by local authorities will have a significant impact on building a more sustainable future and it goes far beyond adopting greener tech…read more on TotalTele.com »

By 2025, Over 7 Billion Antennas will be Shipped into IoT Devices, Creating Challenges for OEMs and Opportunities for Antenna Vendors

ABI Research | Sept. 15, 2021, 5 a.m.

By 2025, 7.2 billion antennas will be shipped for IoT devices - nearly threefold of what it is today. With new product launches and evolution of existing devices requiring multiple radios, smaller form factors, and greater device breadth, OEMs are increasingly challenged both at the design phase and when getting their products to market. A new whitepaper, Rethinking IoT Device Development with Virtual Antenna Technology, by global tech market advisory firm ABI Research, highlights the challenges created by the small, yet critical, antenna component and the real-life impact it has on all IoT product design and certification processes.“The antenna is one of the most common causes of failure when creating a new IoT product,” says Tancred Taylor, IoT Hardware & Devices Research Analyst at ABI Research. “The goal of any antenna in terms of choice and design is high performance for the application it serves, and the network and spectrum it operates on.  The reality is much different. There are dozens of factors that impact real-life operating performance such as proximity to metal or the human body, interference from surrounding waves in RF-congested environments, obstruction from vehicular traffic or other objects, or detuning by other electronic components in a device. If the antenna is not designed and integrated properly at the beginning of the process, an OEM is very likely to encounter higher costs, delays, and even product failure at the certification stage.”Increasingly, antenna vendors are required to work more collaboratively with their customers to limit the potential pitfalls of the process. The antenna is less and less seen as a standalone component, but as one that functions as part of a broader system. Offering software and services on top of the antenna component itself presents significant emerging opportunities for traditional component vendors, as RF engineering gains complexity from expanding network standards and accessible radio spectrum.One antenna vendor taking a different approach to its incumbent competitors is Ignion, a Spanish company responsible for creating the Virtual Antenna, which has shipped over 25 million units through 2020. These wideband antennas work on all frequencies between 698-10,500MHz, and are tuned purely through the matching network. This technology shifts the focus of antenna integration from the antenna component itself to the comparatively simple matching network, which can significantly reduce complexity, antenna selection, and integration time for IoT devices. Ignion’s technology addresses the critical concerns of OEMs regarding RF design in IoT products.“IoT designs are evolving to incorporate more radios, to miniaturize devices, and to reduce power consumption. There are a huge number of OEMs operating in the space, with many getting to large volumes while many others experiment with smaller-scale products. Simplifying the job of RF design in these conditions becomes critical, meaning there are significant opportunities for antenna vendors willing to modify how they interact with customers. This whitepaper highlights one vendor’s efforts to look at the market through a different lens,” Taylor concludes.To learn more about IoT antennas and where innovation is happening, download Rethinking IoT Device Development with Virtual Antenna Technology.

IoT For All: The Sunset of 2G and 3G: What It Means for IoT Connectivity

ABI Research | Sept. 14, 2021, 1 a.m.

5G has been hyped, with operators and system integrators eager to showcase use cases and feature them in new product offerings. However, enterprise adoption has been minimal to date for 5G in IoT initiatives. ABI Research estimates there are only 290 publicly disclosed private 5G network deployments globally.[5] Even if several times that several deployments haven’t been announced, it’s a tiny share of the massive IoT market, and there are signs it’s shrinking.In Germany, for example, ABI found that spectrum applications for private 5G networks have fallen from 80 in the first half of 2020 to “only” 20 in the second quarter of 2021, a decrease of roughly 50% over that period.
