GPS jamming and spoofing - the threat

GPS jamming and spoofing - the threat
What do cars, sports watches, mobile networks and stock exchanges have in common? All of them have benefited from satellite positioning - and have probably been changed by them, either to perform a geographic location or to synchronise distributed networks to exactly the same beat. But while GNSS technology has permeated every aspect of our lives (GNSS stands for Global Satellite Navigation System), its success has made it a target for people with bad intentions, from amateur thieves to military organisations.

Return of the IoT Botnet: exposing the soft underbelly of IoT devices

Return of the IoT Botnet: exposing the soft underbelly of IoT devices
Like the Fast and Furious movies, IoT botnets and cyber attacks just keep coming. The most recent attack, the Silex botnet, is particularly nasty. It doesn’t use devices to create DDoS attacks or attempt to steal personal data. As ZDNet explained in its June article about the attack, the new malware simply deletes the software from the device rendering it useless, or 'bricking' the device.

The electronic start-up’s shark fin dilemma

The electronic start-up’s shark fin dilemma
There has been a sea-change in electronic manufacturing markets. And conditions are now ideal for disruptive start-ups looking to achieve volume at a pace never before possible. Here, John Johnston, NPI Director of Chemigraphic discusses how your EMS can help you manage rapid growth effectively.

Space as the final frontier? Simulate for safety!

Space as the final frontier? Simulate for safety!
Mythology tells the tale of Icarus burning his wings while flying too close to the sun. In the 16th century, Leonardo da Vinci sketched a flight machine, and flight became a reality in the 20th century. We have always looked up into the sky for new frontiers. The US government alone plans to invest $20bn by 2027 for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, infrastructure like the ISS, planet exploration and other deep-space missions.

Welcome to the future!

Welcome to the future!
It has been a whirlwind of activity at SailPoint these last few weeks. We wrapped up our annual Navigate conference in Austin two weeks ago, giving me a chance to connect with many of our customers, partners and prospects. By Paul Trulove, Chief Product Officer at SailPoint.

The fastest way to networked vehicle solutions

The fastest way to networked vehicle solutions
As data plays an increasingly important role in vehicles, wireless networking becomes as important to automobiles as tire pressure. Real-time navigation solutions require an Internet connection to use live traffic information to find the best route to a destination. In an accident, the emergency services (eCall) need important information about the location of the vehicle, its direction of travel and the number of passengers. Similarly, for telematics solutions, it is necessary to exchange data and commands with cloud-based systems.

5G, autonomous systems and the revenge of real time and determinism!

5G, autonomous systems and the revenge of real time and determinism!
If you tend to look at the technology landscape through the lens of a cloud approach, you probably believe that infinite compute, storage and bandwidth are available to you thanks to the cloud. In terms of scalability and elasticity, IT and most of the popular PaaS have largely demonstrated that this is possible - just buy more compute, storage, services from your favorite cloud platform.

Co-existing with containers

Co-existing with containers
Containers are widely regarded as the next big thing in telco virtualisation technology, but what about the service providers who have already deployed VM-based solutions? Some communications service providers have already started virtualising with virtual machines and VNFs and will want to continue that route for various reasons, but they will also want to adopt container-based technologies for the advantages they bring.

HiRain Technologies and u-blox join forces to compete in IoV market

HiRain Technologies and u-blox join forces to compete in IoV market
With the gradual consolidation of wireless standards and the rapid improvement of smart technology in the automotive sector, the pace of development in connected cars is also increasing. In particular, the evolution of electric cars has taken a back seat and has given way to other major trends in green automotive development, including low carbon energy sources, lightweight body materials, intelligent functions, intelligent traffic management systems and car-sharing systems.

Considering the trade offs of different fan bearing designs

Considering the trade offs of different fan bearing designs
Fans are a vital element of many electronic systems, designed to keep the device operating within recommended temperatures, while making sure the electronics are working at their optimum level. Attempts have been made to find alternative thermal management methods, with none proving as effective and economical as the fan.
