Technology Filtered by - Communications Software

New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Communications Software sector. Advances in electronics are often fast-paced and innovative, so we know that as a design engineer you want to be kept up-to-date with current developments.

Below is a comprehensive list of all the latest electronics technology news from New Electronics.

Delivering reliable communications

At the heart of Industry 4.0 is a reliable communications infrastructure that enables data to be extracted from machines, field devices, and factories and delivers trusted and precise operation.

The never-ending quest for bandwidth

You can tell that Shannon’s Law provides little further scope for improving cellular bandwidth: it’s forcing the architects of what will form the 6G cellular standard to consider all manner of options.

A critical issue

With more cyber-attacks than ever on critical infrastructure, how can utilities actively counter these growing threats?

Building better

The construction industry, like many other sectors of the economy, has and continues to experience challenging circumstances, whether that’s been the impact of Covid-19 or having to deal with new regulations such as energy efficiency standards.

Securing national infrastructure

Increasingly hackers are becoming more sophisticated and turning from bank accounts and smart devices to targeting a country’s infrastructure. As a consequence cyber-security has never been more important.

Communication in Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet standards LAPP industrial cables

As the production lines develop and become increasingly complex, the number of devices (sensors and actuators) that need to be managed also grows. Industrial processes are carried out by PLCs and extensive networks of digital or analogue connections. Most often, these are systems based on electric (copper) or fibre-optic cables. Depending on the age of the infrastructure, these will be FIELDBUS (older) or ETHERNET (newer) systems

A blended strategy

IoT production deployments are underpinned by a carefully orchestrated connectivity layer, but there is an on-going debate about which network types and protocols are better suited for supporting mass sensor deployments.

Navigating the pathway to 5G

Is 2021 set to be the year that 5G delivers? With the construction and upgrading of base stations and other infrastructure and the roll out of mobile 5G devices, are we about to see the realisation of the many promises associated with the technology?

A clearer roadmap

There are four trends now shaping the automotive market and in a report published in 2016 by McKinsey & Company (“Automotive revolution – perspective towards 2030”) these were identified as autonomy, connectivity, electrification and diverse mobility.

Network testing in the 5G era

Mobile network operators need to test the stability and performance of their networks in order to ensure good service, but because of the enormous amounts of data that’s involved this is hardly possible with manual methods so, operators are turning to artificial intelligence to solve this challenge.

Maximising the value of IoT data

Many commentators described data as the ‘new oil’, and in the wake of the current epidemic, it might start to be viewed as a utility – a vital resource essential to shaping, supporting, securing and optimising, everyday life.

Why Ethernet-APL is so important

Ethernet-APL (advanced physical layer) specifies the details of the application of Ethernet communication to sensors and actuators for the process industry and will be published under the IEC.

Technology to the rescue

Finding malicious flows hidden in the traffic of millions of connected devices is a huge challenge, but a solution is at hand. By Claire Huckerby-Brown and Richard Parks.

Securing the Things

With the IoT industry calling for common standards and infrastructure it’s fair to say that the industry is very much in its infancy; certainly not mature anyway.

Bridging broadcast

Savvy broadcasters are using software to reap the benefits of emerging technologies whilst making the most of existing assets. Charlotte Hathway reports
