This is the trend of the future - the processing needs for LTE and beyond are so much higher that the traditional macro base-station architectures are running out of processing capacity. It makes sense to consolidate all the heavy processing into a datacenter connected to a large sea if small cells.
ALU did announce a similar liquid radio architecture sometime back.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
