Many businesses use WiFi to provide convenient, wireless access to the corporate network – but even with a network key, have you ever considered how secure the solution is? We look at the differences between WPA-Personal and WPA-Enterprise, and highlight why your business should really be using WPA-Enterprise. Read more
IoT sensors offer an inexpensive way of monitoring the indoor environment; with battery-powered sensors able to monitor temperature, humidity, CO2, room occupancy and light levels. Due to Covid restrictions, many of you will be working home like me. To demonstrate the effective use of the technology, I installed a single IoT sensor in my home office to highlight the different use cases and value of IoT. I then look at some applications of IoT in healthcare, business and the public sector.
Agricultural technology (agritech) aims to improve food production efficiency using technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), AI and Robotics. In this post, I explain the different pillars of agritech and highlight three key technologies.
This article may grow over time as new features and market terms develop.
When you read a small business firewall datasheet or brochure, you may be confused by the terminology or lost in the wealth of performance metrics quoted. This problem is often made worse when different vendors use subtly different terms or use a different basis to assess performance! Read more
As retail businesses begin to reopen following lockdown and government restrictions, many companies are looking at technology and IoT solutions to help comply with new regulations, while also safeguarding their staff and customers. IoT technology can assist retailers in a post-covid-19 era and give shoppers peace of mind as they return to the high street.
Retailers and supermarkets have introduced new “one-in-one-out” rules designed to enforce social distancing and limit the spread of coronavirus. IoT and people counting technology can be used to automate the process of one-in-one-out, therefore, reducing cost and improving safety.

Monitoring bathing water quality with IoT reduces cost, improves coverage and provides real-time measurements. The use of IoT technology offers rich datasets and real-time alerting for bathing water or pollution events.
An LPWan (Low Power Wide Area Network) is a type of wireless network , well suited for IoT and sensors, where low-power, long-range data communications is a requirement. Typically LPWan technologies have data-rates of less than 100Kbps so are not comparable to broadband, but are well suited to data transmission from IoT sensors. Read more
