It is mentioned in the article that Nokia is planning to design Cat9 device that can support carrier aggregation up to 60Mhz. Carrier Aggregation in LTE-A systems will require some special features on the user devices/phones. What specific requirement supposed to be on the phones to get benefited with LTE-A? It is also discussed in the article that Nokia was able to test 20 MHz and 40 MHz carrier aggregation on the existing handsets, which handsets are in the discussion here?
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.
