The recent convergence of low-power wide area, short-range wireless, and cellular networks

I have a pleasure to recall that, the recent convergence of low-power wide area, short-range wireless, and cellular networks represents a fertile battleground for the future of IoT enablement. 

According to ABI Research, while today about 55% of IoT connections can be attributed to the digital-first domain (the Internet of Digital), the emergence of low-power wide-area and short-range wireless network technologies purpose-built for the IoT puts the physical-first domain (IoT) on track to account for 65% of active wireless connections in the next five years.

Increased availability of advanced aerial imagery+ geographic information system (GIS) mapping

I have a pleasure to recall that, High-resolution digital satellite aerial imagery has gained popularity among government organizations, planners, developers, and engineers.  In effect, the technology helps in real-estate management, land calculations, mining operations, road planning, and small-scale mapping for most land applications. 
The information from aerial images, along with geographic information system (GIS) mapping, is used for analysis, strategic planning, and evaluation in engineering and urban planning.

VSAT terminal vendors and VSAT technology in our ever-connected digital era

For those who are unfamiliar, I can recall that, in the telecommunication sector, mobile network operators and internet service providersuse VSAT technology to establish cost-effective backhaul networks
In effect,Backhaul networksrequire high-speed data transfer to establish a connection between two network operation centers or switching centers spread over a large area

The broadband services segment is growing very fast due to the increased demand for broadband services among government users, media users, SMEs, and other end-users. 
It is also interesting to recall that, the increasing demand for higher data rates is prompting VSAT terminal vendors to develop and introduce new product models, which can support services demanded by customers.

Sensors and Connected Peripherals in our ever-connected world

Steadily, one can observe that, Sensors and Connected Peripherals outpace Smartphones and PCs for majority of active wireless connections for the first time in history.
On this momentum, ABI Research forecasts the installed base of active wireless connected devices will top 47 billion by 2021, more than double the current level.
