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…)
Better Intelligence and Communications are needed to counter current global environmental threats.
The World Economic Forum’s annual risks report has consistently since 2012 highlighted extreme weather, climate action failure and human environmental damage in the top five risks to global habitation. The breakout of the Covid-19 pandemic early in 2020, understandably made it into the top five in 2020’s WEF annual risk report, but despite the impact that the pandemic has wrought across the world, the top three risks are still environmental.
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.

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.
With local authorities facing budget cuts, restricted resources in delivering essential local council services to the public in both urban and rural areas and tougher challenges to meet the needs of staff and the areas they cover it is imperative that you have the right communication systems in place. Local councils and government agencies manage a diverse and disparate portfolio of parks, public facilities, roads and social services. When visibility and response time are key factors in your ability to allocate tasks and effectively respond to disasters, your communication network must deliver continuous connectivity, voice clarity, and reliability.

A technological transformation is taking place across the UK’s rail network. As discussed in this article on the Network Rail website, a new ‘Digital Railway’ strategy has officially been launched, taking one of the UK’s most iconic forms of transport into a new era. Both trains themselves and the tracks they run on are increasingly being controlled by digital technology, from upgrades from old analogue signals, to digital control of the trains themselves on the likes of the new Crossrail line. As the chief executive of Network Rail has said, this is the biggest technological revolution on the railways since the transition from steam to diesel in the 1960s.
