All of these acquisitions and mergers point to one thing: true cell and the entire range of wireless monitoring technologies are crucial as far as the future of base stations and radio towers are concerned. The monitoring system helps with all kind of analytics and is at the core of what is needed for a network to run properly.
This acquisition will indirectly push Tektronics Network Monitoring equipments sales among the Telcos, as Newfield Software is already in use with many Telcos, but all of them are not using Tektronics Network Monitoring equipments, as far as my best of knowing in my geographical area.
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.
