OriginGPS today announced the launch of the Nano Hornet, the world’s smallest fully integrated global antenna module. “Although there has never been more demand for location information, size and power constraints have limited innovation in the wearables space”, said Gal Jacobi, CEO of OriginGPS. “Developers want to add features to wearable devices without making them bulkier and less [...]

World’s Smallest Standalone 3G Modem Aims to Make Large Impact on the Internet of Things

World’s Smallest Standalone 3G Modem Aims to Make Large Impact on the Internet of Things

At the heart of the Internet of Things lies the convergence of computing and connectivity, where even the tiniest of everyday devices—or “things”—can have massive computing capability and intelligence though its connection to the cloud. Today, we commercially launched the XMM™ 6255 modem to provide a wireless solution for the billions of “smart” and connected devices that are expected in the coming years. At about 300 mm2in size, it is the world’s smallest standalone 3G modem, making it perfect for networked sensors and other [...]

The Internet of Things Will Drive Wireless Connected Devices to 40.9 Billion in 2020

The Internet of Things Will Drive Wireless Connected Devices to 40.9 Billion in 2020

According to an updated market forecast from ABI Research, the installed base of active wireless connected devices will exceed 16 billion in 2014, about 20% more than in 2013. The number of devices will more than double from the current level, with 40.9 billion forecasted for 2020. Principal analyst Aapo Markkanen comments: “The driving force behind the surge in connections is that usual buzzword suspect, the Internet of Things (IoT). If we look at this year’s installed base, smartphones, PCs, and other ‘hub’ devices represent [...]
