5g and the future

ConsumerLab research from May 2019 that indicates half of all consumers are willing to pay a 20% premium for 5G over 4G. Operators can achieve higher Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) by offering added value to consumers beyond data and speed. Many operators are expected to offer 5G service bundles with their ecosystem partners; with services such as immersive media, cloud gaming and Live event experiences.

Why the time to invest in the smart factory is now

Manufacturers must be ready to answer accelerated product cycles, master agility for changing market demands and navigate fragmented markets. Therefore, digital transformation should no longer be a wish list item — it’s a business imperative. Integrating the IoT can help manufacturers to stay ahead of the curve – by reducing operational costs, producing better products, minimising risks, optimising processes and ultimately creating better customer experiences.

Nokia and SoftBank team up to complete world’s first 5G connected car test

Nokia has become the first telecommunications firm to successfully complete a trial demoing the use of non-standalone 5G technology for commercial operations of connected cars.

The testing was conducted by SoftBank at Japan’s Honda research and development site in Hokkaido.

SoftBank, a buyer of Nokia’s end-to-end 5G portfolio, installed non-standalone 5G networks that are suitable for testing connected vehicles. The test proved to be a breakthrough owing to Nokia’s 3GPP Release 15 compliant commercial-level 256QAM high-order modulation and 4x4 MIMO radio equipment were used.

An Open Source Effort to Encrypt the Internet of Things

End-to-end encryption is a staple of secure messaging apps like WhatsApp and Signal. It ensures that no one—not even the app developer—can access your data as it traverses the web. But what if you could bring some version of that protection to increasingly ubiquitous and notoriously insecure internet of things devices?

The Swiss cryptography firm Teserakt is trying just that. Earlier this month, at the Real World Crypto conference in New York, it introduced E4, a sort of cryptographic implant that IoT manufacturers can integrate into their servers. Today most IoT data is encrypted at some point as it moves across the web, but it's challenging to keep that protection consistent for the whole ride. E4 would do most of that work behind the scenes, so that whether companies make home routers, industrial control sensors, or webcams, all the data transmitted between the devices and their manufacturers can be encrypted.
