In the last part of this series, we stated that, after GPRS was past its prime, telephone service providers were not quick to move on and adopt new technologies. This inability to offer a competitive, modern technology presented the perfect opportunity for the rise of Sigfox and other IoT technologies. Today, we finally catch up and hopefully start to see the future of communication possibilities of the Internet of Things, i.e. the NB-IoT infrastructure, also known as LTE Cat NB1, according to the 3GPP Release 13.
Technological development is racing ahead at full speed, and functions of augmented reality (AR) can be found in our smartphones for quite some time now. At eMan, we’ve been working with AR since 2011. And that’s quite a while! So, in this article, we’d like to do a brief overview of the most interesting projects that we’ve worked on so far.
As is the case with many of my peers, I also grew up playing computer games. Today, I’ll talk mainly about server modifications for the legendary game Counter-Strike: Source. Read on and immerse yourself in a world where anything and everything is possible.
In the world of IT, it’s said that some documentation is better than no documentation. While that’s true, you can still encounter quite a lot of difficulties when working with any given documentation. That’s why a tool named Jazzy exists. Jazzy is a tool that can generate documentation with a single command. It saves you time and gets rid of the need for lengthy “rewrites” of the code for people who want to understand it. Let’s have a look at how this handy tool works.
In previous articles, we covered two technologies that are not dependent on any telephone service provider. So, if you’re brave enough, you can use them for your awesome solutions while eliminating the need to pay any fees. Today, let’s talk about a different case, called Sigfox.
Sometimes, in a developer’s life, there appears a tool which can significantly facilitate mutual communication. A tool one can use to prevent a burst of anger and uncontrollable rage. One of these lifesavers is this beautiful linter I will briefly introduce to you today.
In 2012, a technology that can process signals which are close to the noise level while operating in license-free bands was born. How does LoRa (Long Range) and LORAWAN work? What are their pros and cons, and usages in real life?
First, let’s take a look at a technology which was developed in the Czech Republic. Introduced to the world fifteen years ago, it uses radio frequency for communication. How does it work exactly and what are its pros and cons? How much does it all cost and what is its best use? And do you know what IQRF Alliance is?
Recently, you may have been hearing words like IoT, narrowband, Sigfox, IQRF, or LoRaWAN. What does all that mean? Well, it means that the time for devices that are usually quite small, connected to the internet, and can work on their own without the need of any interference of a third party, has come. (They’ve been here for a few years now...) These properties are summarized by an acronym LPWAN (low-power wide-area network).
The user enters her smart car. Her favorite playlist starts playing, a message is sent to her family, a notification of low fuel pops up with a suggested gas station that has the lowest prices and is along the way. This isn’t Sci-Fi, this is an everyday reality. What technologies make this possible and why is infotainment the most important part?
