Low ARPUs, fraud and client culture clashes are backdrop as TeleSign acquisition accelerates BICS transformation
Carriers and even carriers’ carriers need to stimulate growth and reduce their dependency on declining voice revenues. All of which comes as news to no-one, says Jeremy Cowan. But how they manage this transformation is critical and presents fascinating challenges.Read More
How should you monitor, service, update and finally decommission the army of IoT devices you deploy?
Step One is relatively easy; you agree to reap the benefits an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) deployment. Step Two is harder; how do you deploy and manage a fog, cloud or hybrid compute approach? How do you support the thousands of sensors and actuators that need to be installed? And how do you plan their lifecycle? Editorial director, Jeremy Cowan asks a man who must know; Keith Shea, general manager, Helix IoT Solutions at Wind River.Read More

Here, Jeremy Cowan reports from Ireland on companies that are partnering to prevent this. Read More
When will you be ready to get in a driverless car?
We are really close to perfecting the technology for self-driving cars. But our driverless future won’t go anywhere if people don’t trust it. It’s one thing for our autonomous test cars to take us for a drive with a safety driver behind the wheel. But soon there won’t be anyone in that seat. When will you be ready to get in?Read More
How real-time IIoT actionable data impacts process improvement of warehouses and manufacturers
All those sensors on AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) which prevent collisions (with people, equipment, or building structures) are collecting data. Until recently, no AGV manufacturer has found a way to concretise these data and make the actionable, predictive, and fundamentally useful.Read More
