re: Trial shows active antenna can raise cell capacity 40%

This is a very interesting result. With the increase in the importance of smartphones and the attendant increased importance to customers of good signal for voice and data transfer, and in view of the existing number of very low signal level areas and dead spots, the need for better coverage, preferably at low cost, becomes increasingly apparent. What would have been an minor inconvenience only a couple of years ago now seems like a major problem to the customer and will need to be resolved soon.

Heavy cell phone users are well aware of the "dead spots" in their local area. It would be wonderful if this active technology could build continuous coverage bridges across small dead spot gaps and avoid the need to add additional towers. New towers could be more cost effectively allocated for the larger gaps that can't be bridged by active antennas.

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.
