I watched a recent video posted to a news network which showed a policeman in the USA discussing with the householder why the parents needed to persuade their daughter to remove inflammatory social media posts. Whilst the content was fascinating from a news perspective, more interesting, (to me anyway), was the fact that the video feed was shot from the in-vehicle CCTV, parked several metres away, but the audio was from the policeman’s vest microphone. The audio was clear, crisp and captured clearly the conversation from all parties gathered near the front door. (more…)
Businesses are demanding that the information needed to analyse and monitor elements within their industries, are delivered in real-time. Many mobile units, such as vehicles rely on separate network connections to move information from disparate systems sources. The result is a mobile units often maintain a variety of data sources across multiple cellular networks. This makes for very expensive connectivity in a single unit and may discourage organisations from collating more information which, in turn, leads to a better informed and more agile business decisions. The need for a unified hub that aggregates and manages the data and that can in turn be centrally configured and managed remotely in real-time is an interesting and compelling story.

As we kick start another year and new decade, technology is advancing and accelerating at a phenomenal growth. This technology growth and change is likely to continue for the next decade and beyond. In this blog we take a look at what new technology trends will steal the limelight in the critical communications industry.
Comms Connect is one of the key events for critical communications in the Australasia region. With a keen eye on trends, hot topics and the latest technology solutions in the critical communications sector, Comms Connect is the key source for vital information and networking opportunities. Leading professionals from all over Australia and the rest of the World will debate where the critical communications industry is heading, Simoco Wireless Solutions is proud to sponsor and exhibit at the yearly event.
The evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) era has opened up to enormous capabilities for traditional radio communication networks to converge with rich data applications and digital communication channels such as email to be seamlessly integrated with traditional voice.
What is the IoT?
The Internet of things is a huge and rapidly growing ecosystem resulting from the embedding of IP connectivity in ordinary devices or “things”. These devices can communicate and interact with others over the Internet, and can be remotely monitored and controlled. The broad aim is to capture previously untapped data from across this infrastructure and to turn this data into tangible insights and actions, some of which may be automated in nature.
Introducing a cellular router that boasts next generation performance suitable for SCADA and telemetry or industrial IoT deployments
What are Cellular routers?
A cellular router is a transportable device which enables users to connect to the Internet via a cellular data network rather than cables. The benefit a cellular router provides is that they let many users access the Internet using just one integrated cellular networking system. As opposed to conventional modems, a cellular router does not require an Ethernet wire, phone line or fibre optic connection to connect to the Internet. Rather, they are able quickly connect to cellular towers that belongs to certain networks.
The countdown is on to the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) 2018, which takes place from March 5th to 9th in Orlando, Florida. We’re looking forward to packing up our exhibition materials and travelling out to the Sunshine State – especially as we have a raft of exciting new technologies to share with delegates.
November 2017 has seen the opening of the first phase of a new stretch of smart motorway on the M1. More are to follow, as the section of road is just part of a wider government investment in a junctions 19 to 13 smart motorways project.
This project is part of a much broader trend for transport operators, including rail and tram companies, taxi firms, commercial fleet managers and airports, who are increasingly using technology to deliver more efficient operations and an improved travel experience. This can be seen in a recent report that has underlined how 66% of US conurbations are investing in smart city technology for their transport infrastructure, and the world’s first fully autonomous long-distance rail journey, which was successfully completed in Australia last month.
Earlier this week, Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond announced that the UK government will invest more than £1bn in digital infrastructure, in order to support trials for 5G mobile technology.
The current ambition of the government is for the UK to be a world leader in 5G. The next generation of mobile technology will become commonplace across the UK within the next few years, but what is 5G, and what does this revolution mean for the communications industry?
