It is specified in "LTE; Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access(E-UTRA);Physical channels and modulation(3GPP TS 36.211 version 10.4.0 Release 10)" that, there are 504 unique physical-layer cell identities. They are grouped into 168 unique groups, each group containing 3 cell identities.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
