How Google's SkyBender drones will deliver Internet access to remote areas

How Google's SkyBender drones will deliver Internet access to remote areas | Tech and Business blend for Investing News | Scoop.it
The company is quietly conducting tests of the technology, which could potentially transmit large amounts of data at speeds up to 40 times faster than currently 4G LTE networks, at a vast site in New Mexico developed for private spaceflight.

Richard Platt's curator insight, February 1, 2016 7:23 PM

Google is quietly testing whether solar-powered drones can deliver high-speed Internet service from the air at a much faster rate than traditional cell towers.  The project, codenamed SkyBender, uses transceivers that can send and receive signals using high-frequency millimeter wave radio transmissions, which can potentially transmit gigabits of data per second, up to 40 times faster than 4G LTE cell networks, the current mobile standard. The high-frequency transmissions have often been proposed as part of a faster 5G standard.  Because millimeter wave technology uses higher frequencies, it has the potential to carry more data and operate in a less crowded part of the radio wave spectrum, making data-hungry services, such as streaming video sites, available to a wider group of users.  

But there are some drawbacks to the technology behind SkyBender — high-frequency transmissions have a short wavelength, meaning they can’t travel as far and can be blocked by obstacles such as buildings, walls, and windows – and even rain and moisture in the air.  The market for lower frequencies that aren't already being used — so-called “beachfront property,” which can travel longer distances and through buildings — is often highly competitive. An auction held by the Federal Communications Commission last year netted $45 billion from wireless carriers.  “The huge advantage of millimeter wave is access to new spectrum because the existing cellphone spectrum is overcrowded. It’s packed and there’s nowhere else to go,” Jacques Rudell, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle, told the Guardian.  But in order to get millimeter waves to work from a drone, Professor Rudell says, Google must experiment with using highly-focused transmissions from what’s known as a phased array. That’s a difficult task that also burns a lot of power, Rudell told the paper.

LinkedIn stock plunges 43% wiping $11 BILLION off firm's value

LinkedIn stock plunges 43% wiping $11 BILLION off firm's value | Tech and Business blend for Investing News | Scoop.it

LinkedIn shares plunged as much as 43 percent on Friday, wiping out nearly $11 billion of market value, after the social network for professionals shocked Wall Street with a poor revenue forecast.

Jerry Mills's insight:

Not nearly ready for a buy in, but really worth watching for awhile.  One man's pain will be another's gain.  Anyone holding positions in this stock got really hammered with this drop.  It could still go lower but will eventually right the ship.

Microsoft outlines IoT plans for Windows 10

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 10, 2015 12:01 AM

Microsoft's goal of having 1 billion devices running Windows 10 in the next two to three years. The first partner in that ambitious project is Toshiba, which will build "next-generation Windows- and Azure-powered IoT solutions."  That means offerings for the transportation and logistics industry, from devices to services, including state-of-the-art hardware such as an onboard video recorder than can also track vehicle data and analyze driver behavior.  This isn't exactly new. I recently saw a documentary on NHK World (the English language version of Japan's top broadcast network) on Japan's adoption of IoT, and they are way ahead of us in the States. One of the first places IoT was deployed was in heavy equipment, which Toshiba makes, to monitor the equipment and driver as described above. So this is already in use.   -  Toshiba will also create a ruggedized environmental device with up to 12 sensors onboard, a military-grade case, and a battery capable of six months of continuous operation that will run on the Azure infrastructure to track shipping and ensure that goods arrive on time, undamaged, and in a predictable manner.  -  Parker also showed off a consumer device, Crestron Pyng, a home-automation technology powered by Windows embedded services that connects lighting, shades, audio, thermostats, door locks, and security systems within the home that utilizes Azure IoT services so everything works together.
