On Tuesday, ARM will introduce processors that are just a fraction of a millimeter across and incorporate the company’s TrustZone technology.
On Monday, the Wi-Fi Alliance launched a certification process for WiGig products, which will go as fast as 8Gbps (bits per second) and could include virtual-reality headsets and high-speed office Wi-Fi zones.
Cisco is boosting the speed of its long-distance storage links for disaster recovery and business continuity. It’s also introducing higher speeds for IP (Internet Protocol) storage networks in data centers and rolling out software to simplify storage management.
Facebook’s 100-gigabit switch design has been accepted by the Open Compute Project, a step that should help to foster an open ecosystem of hardware and software on high-speed networking gear.
5G networks will be five times as fast as the quickest LTE technology by using the highest cellular frequencies ever, according to Qualcomm, which provided a glimpse of a next-generation modem on Tuesday.
Connected cameras are among the hardest-working IoT devices. They’re the target of chip and software enhancements that Qualcomm is introducing on Tuesday.
Combining forms of enterprise collaboration is only part of the battle. There’s also integration with productivity applications. On Monday, Avaya announced an all-in-one collaboration platform, plus an open SDK for making other applications work with it.
The fallout from the Note 7 debacle, which is expected to take a big chunk out of Samsung’s third-quarter profit, will keep hurting its business into next year, the company said.
If dispersing data among storage nodes can make it more secure and less prone to loss, wouldn’t spreading it across far-flung cloud data centers make it even more so? If so, IBM has the right idea with its Cloud Object Storage service
Two of the main IoT standards groups have merged, probably bringing consumers closer the day when your lights, your refrigerator and the power company can all talk to each other. On Monday, the Open Connectivity Foundation and the AllSeen Alliance announced they would merge.
The long fight over LTE networks sharing frequencies with Wi-Fi may be just the first of many battles as device makers and service providers try to make the most of the limited available spectrum.
Comcast and the biggest U.S. carriers are taking their long-running rivalry to the internet of things. On Wednesday, Comcast said it would launch trials of LoRa low-power network technology.
Software is beginning to simplify one of the hardest kinds of networking: wide-area networks that link up an enterprise’s remote sites, branch offices and data centers. Now AT&T is getting in on the game.
If you want 5G, there’s a good chance you’ll need a small cell nearby to deliver it. Putting up that cell may be hard because of a host of problems, but Nokia Bell Labs thinks it can solve some of them with drones and tiny solar panels.
A massive DDOS attack and weaknesses in critical systems have put security concerns front and center in the internet of things. IBM thinks blockchain technology could lock down at least one use of IoT.
