How Can the Electronics Industry Tap into the Potential of 5G?
5G may one day be a universal communication feature, but so far, it is still far from ready. We look at what is holding it back in the consumer world, and what engineers and manufacturers can do to help both its integration in towns and cities—which may ultimately involve increasing the fifth generation’s capabilities in the industrial IoT.
Critical Engineering Skills For the Future: Readying for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the UK
Engineering is vital to the UK’s economy: it provides quality employment alongside some vital solutions to major global challenges. However, the UK, similarly to the rest of Europe, has been experiencing a skills gap. Faced with the fourth industrial revolution and more, will the UK have the volume of engineering talent it needs to remain a key player?
University Carlos III de Madrid to Implement 5G Technology in Four Different Test Working Environments in Europe
Coordinated by the University Carlos III de Madrid, 5Growth will implant 5G technology across four European working environments with a view of validating the functioning of new telecommunication networks.
Electronically Securing IoT Devices for the Future
As IoT-connected devices continue to rise in popularity, there is a growing need to secure them against cyber-attacks that plague the internet daily and continue to grow in prominence. These threats have the potential to access sensitive information—to the extent that conventional anti-virus and firewall solutions will not suffice.
Addressing Energy Inefficiency in Wi-Fi Systems and Infrastructure
The intensive use of Wi-Fi communications has led to the growth of W-Fi infrastructure worldwide. Due to the huge amounts of data transmission, however, these consume a whole lot of power that is lost as heat. This shouldn't (and doesn't need to) be the case.
Electronic Device Security Experts Weigh in on Insecure Electronics Use by the Military
At the end of last month, a report by the Pentagon's inspector general revealed the US Department of Defense (DoD) spent over $32.8 million in the 2018 fiscal year on electronics with known security vulnerabilities.
