Three UK strengthens Internet of Things with Low Power Wide Area Capability

Three UK strengthens Internet of Things with Low Power Wide Area Capability

Three UK and CKH Innovations Opportunities Development (CKH IOD, a unit of CK Hutchison’s telecom division) are piloting a Low Power Wide Area network (LPWA), which is the first step in a nationwide network roll out that will support mass deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

LPWA networks – made up of Narrowband IoT and LTE-M technologies – provide a cost-effective way to wirelessly connect IoT devices which monitor and control everything from key infrastructure to smart buttons. Sectors such as energy, logistics, building management, and transport can be digitally transformed by LPWA technologies.

IoT devices used in these sectors are generally deployed on a massive scale. Often, the devices need to be placed in difficult environments for wireless (or wired) connections. LPWA technology solves this connectivity challenge in three ways: it covers a large area; the radio signal penetrates deep inside buildings and underground, where infrastructure IoT devices are often placed; and low-energy NB-IoT devices can last 5 or more years in the field. LPWA devices can operate without a fixed power source, meaning they can remain in situ and maintenance free for long periods.

The Three UK LPWA pilot network has been set up at the Integrated Transport Electricity Gas Research Laboratory in Gateshead UK (InTEGReL). The lab is a collaboration between Northern Gas Networks, Newcastle University, Northern Powergrid, Northumbrian Water and Siemens.

The LPWA at InTEGReL will enable researchers to deploy wireless devices throughout the experimental energy network to identify problems and gather performance data. In a live environment, LPWA technology helps energy companies improve service reliability, detect faults, make customer billing more accurate and lower carbon emissions.

Three UK’s Wholesale division currently provides IoT connectivity to partners such as ARM, Arkessa, AT&T, Wireless Logic and Mobius. These partnerships allow Three to target IoT industry verticals including retail, transport, logistics, infrastructure and utilities. The LPWA network enables Three Wholesale to extend the portfolio of services that it offers and work with a range of customers on new use cases which require low bandwidth and wide coverage.

Three UK will draw on extensive LPWA experience CKH IOD has acquired with other CK Hutchison telecoms companies – Three Austria, Sweden and Hong Kong. In Austria, for example, LPWA technology is used by a range of companies in energy, transport, logistics and building management to track assets and monitor energy usage. Three Sweden were the first mobile network in Sweden to launch narrow-band IoT services nationally and are actively partnering with Utility providers on smart-metering applications.

Darren King, Head of Business Development at Three Wholesale said: “The launch of our LPWA pilot is an exciting development for Three UK, giving our Enterprise customers access to a broader range of services. The low power, long battery life and excellent reach of LPWA technology has great potential to support companies in any industry where companies need continuous information from their infrastructure in order to optimise service. We expect that we will be able to start offering LPWA services to a range of industries over the next few years, as we extend the sectors we offer the service in.”

Matthew Little, Innovation, Information and Improvement Director, Northern Gas Networks, said: “LPWA offers huge potential for the gas industry. Real-time data from our infrastructure flowing into advanced data analytics models will allow us to take fast, agile and even pre-emptive action to deliver outstanding customer value whilst maintaining the highest level of resilience, which will be more important than ever as we transition to a low carbon energy network.

Our industry needs new technologies such as this to support our ambitions to decarbonise gas systems, through projects such as H21 to transition to hydrogen for heat and meet the UK Net Zero target by 2050.”

Nigel Watson, CIO Northumbria Water, said LPWA will be an enabler for the delivery of the company’s strategic objectives. “We recognise the power of innovative technologies to enhance what we’re already doing. IoT is a key tool for us to detect and proactively respond to the impacts of climate change,” he said. “We’re excited to be involved in the LPWA IoT test bed and look forward to the learnings it will provide.”

Thermoplan and Qiio Connect Coffee machines to the cloud

Thermoplan Partners with qiio for IoT Coffee Machine Solution

 Exclusive coffee machine supplier to a global coffeehouse chain selects qiio for IoT   connectivity.
Swiss-based qiio (pronounced “kio”), a leading provider of complete, end-to-end “Internet-of-Things” (IoT) solutions from sensor to cloud, today announced a partnership with Thermoplan, manufacturer of the “Black&White” brand of professional coffee machines. Since 1999, Thermoplan has been the exclusive provider of fully automatic coffee machines to one of the world’s largest coffee house chains.

 

Bridging the information gap about machine usage

Professional coffee machines are normally sold with a maintenance contract. Manufacturers usually do not know how coffee shops use their machines, e.g. whether a machine serves 2 or 60 cups of coffee per hour. Without real-time data to monitor machine usage, technicians are sent to shops on a monthly basis which may be too frequent for some machines, or too little for machines that serve a lot of coffee.

Connecting coffee machines to the cloud

Based on embedded sensors and qiio’s IoT connectivity hardware and cloud platform, Thermoplan is now able to remotely monitor machine usage and other critical parameters in real-time. As a result, they only need to send out technicians when maintenance is actually required, saving on average one service visit per machine per year. With thousands of machines installed, this results in an annual cost savings in the millions of dollars.

“Our client expects smoothly running machines with minimum down-time”, said Sylvia Schoeberl, Head of Marketing, “For Thermoplan, maintenance is a significant part of overall costs. With qiio’s IoT solution, we have achieved the optimum balance between the two, resulting in a reliable, uninterrupted supply of great-tasting coffee which is the foundation of our client’s business.”

“Thermoplan’s huge installed base of professional coffee machines is precisely the type of application where qiio’s IoT solutions excel,” said Felix Adamczyk, CEO at qiio, “We handle the complexity of remote asset management, allowing Thermoplan to focus on their core business – enabling their clients to deliver the best coffee experience to consumers quickly, reliably and cost-effectively.”

qiio: taking the complexity out of IoT connectivity

To complete Thermoplan’s coffee machine IoT monitoring system, they looked to qiio to provide a secure, “plug and play” wireless connectivity solution and cloud-based monitoring platform. Based on qiio’s “IoT Concentrator” hardware and secure WiFi connectivity solution, sensor data is collected, concentrated, encrypted and relayed directly to a secure cloud platform hosting qiio’s remote monitoring dashboard. qiio’s solution includes a seamless migration path from WiFi to cellular connectivity, providing future-proof IoT connectivity for machines located in even the most remote locations.

Canadian drone test uses LTE network to deliver defibrillators

drone-with-camera-flying-over-forest-fire_web-110672crop397055833141resize1500844autoorientbackground23ffffffquality90stripextensionjpgid8

LTE-enabled delivery of life-saving equipment and emergency medical supplies via beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) drones could see a 17-fold increase in the distance covered compared to current non-mobility-enabled alternatives. That’s just one finding from successful tests driven by health authorities in the Canadian province of Ontario, enabled by Ericsson LTE connectivity. 

Renfrew County authorities say using the mobile network could see life-saving equipment and supplies being delivered more than 128 km from the control point compared to the 7.25 km range of current non-mobile-network enabled drone delivery services. The 4G LTE-enabled tests included live video streaming, photo-sharing, and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, such as collision avoidance.

Renfrew County says the trial results will be used to plan services to reduce time to treatment for people suffering cardiac arrest, and, in the future, those who need urgent medication in private, residential, or rural locations.

THE TESTS

In addition to Ericsson, Renfrew County also partnered with Canadian unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) company InDro Robotics, and tech firm Cradlepoint.

The drone flew via the LTE network to remote take-off points selected by GPS and landed successfully to deliver an AED to onsite researchers, who used it to treat a medical mannequin.

InDro Robotics supplied the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV); Cradlepoint provided the on-board router, while Ericsson provided 4G LTE equipment with carrier aggregation, as well as mobile network design support and drone research.

THE REACTION

Renfrew County Paramedic, Chief Mike Nolan, says: “Given the large area and varied terrain that the county encompasses, it is often difficult to get emergency medical services to patients in a timely fashion. We have been successfully using drones to support our emergency responders for several years, but until now, the operators have had line-of-sight of the situation. We will now have further reach than ever.

“What’s particularly innovative and exciting about this trial is the potential of drone-delivered AEDs to have a transformative impact on emergency care for patients suffering cardiac arrest, especially those in remote private, residential or rural settings, where getting emergency treatment rapidly is vital.”

David Everingham, Chief Technology Officer, Ericsson Canada, says: “This trial is an illustration of Ericsson’s belief in Technology for Good. We are proud to partner in this innovative trial with multiple companies showing how 4G LTE networks and drones can be used to advance life-saving services.”

Bad Cars: Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack

TV and science fiction writers have let their imaginations run wild with theories about what could happen if your car was attacked by bad actors. There have been a few real-world cases where white-hat hackers and researchers have been able – in limited, controlled instances – to actually penetrate a car’s electronics and communications systems, take over the car’s steering and acceleration systems, and potentially do real damage.

However, there are other scenarios that might not be as obvious or as dramatic.

For example, what if your car’s computer was infected by a virus that greatly reduced the engine’s efficiency or capped the car’s maximum driving speed? What if the virus did something less dramatic, such as make the car unable to lock the controls for automatic window operation, or simply prevent the car from starting? No one would die, but the car owner would be very upset, posing a disaster for the automobile’s manufacturers.

Motor City Ransomware

Electric Vehicles require sophisticated control and safety technologies for their electrical power systems to safely manage the high voltages that store and distribute from their battery systems. If something goes wrong, the car cannot operate, people could get electrocuted, or the car could burst into flames or explode. These are real dangers that are managed by the car’s network of fuses, circuit breakers, and control systems.

What would happen if a cyber hacker got into these sensitive electronic systems and turned off the safety and control system?

Why would someone do this? Money, of course.

Suppose the bad guys successfully penetrated and infected these vehicles? Imagine now that they had the software or security keys that could fix these problems, but hold them as ransom, jeopardizing an automaker’s entire fleet of new cars.

How many millions (or tens of millions) of dollars would the automaker pay to get that solution? Holding a manufacturer hostage is a very real possibility, as evidenced by the results that today’s hackers are getting by attacking hospitals and cities and successfully extracting substantial ransoms to just return these institution’s data. In a recent WIRED article, The Biggest Cybersecurity Crisis of 2019 So Far, which discusses the risks to “things” and across supply chains, the FBI explained, “We are seeing an increase in targeted ransomware attacks. Cyber criminals are opportunistic. They will monetize any network to the fullest extent.”

Pre- and Post-Assembly Infections

It is possible that cars could be infected before they even hit the auto dealers’ lots. Bad actors have the capability to infect a small electronic part, essential to the auto manufacturing food chain, purchased from one of the hundreds of component suppliers.

How could auto manufacturers possibly test each electronic element? It is almost impossible – and requires that parts manufacturers themselves take more care in their software development process to ensure the software in these components are not infected during manufacturing process, or during the testing and shipping processes.

Of course, cyber infections could happen on the actual assembly line where the cars are put together. With many car manufacturing plants using IoT connected robots and machines, there is always a possibility of infection happening on the assembly line.

These components could even become infected after assembly, during the manufacturers’ testing and process. Infection, during installation, or with after-market parts and upgrades, could arise after the vehicles arrive at the dealers’ facilities.

Already aware of the possibility and the potential disastrous effects of infected cars reaching the market, manufacturers throughout the supply chain need to become more aware of how their devices could be attacked and infected even before they leave the warehouse. This means embedding IoT security from day one – from the smallest electronic components to final assembly of motors, transmissions and other large vehicle components.

Operators Warm Up for 5G Sports Coverage Opportunity

5G sports coverage

Like the athletes and competitors on the field, many mobile operators are working to get their networks in shape and fighting fit to deliver 5G enterprise services to live sports and esports event organisers, according to a recent survey by Ovum on behalf of Amdocs.

Operators are eyeing the opportunities to not only give fans a more innovative experience via 5G services in the stadium but also make the arenas more efficient.

According to the survey, 87% of network operators intend to offer 5G services to major event enterprises. While 82% of operators said they plan to offer Internet of Things (IoT)-type services that would improve stadium management, more than half of operators said they aim to offer services that would improve the fan experience, such as being able to order food and drinks from their mobile devices.

By being part of the sports ecosystem, the potential benefits to operators include increased average revenue per user (APRU), growth of their enterprise businesses, improved customer loyalty, attracting new subscribers as well as expanding brand awareness among different consumer demographics.

Almost half of operators surveyed said that 5G will propel higher ARPU and about one third said it will drive enterprise business growth. For operators that run sports-related businesses, such as media services, half of respondents said they expect to add more sports TV subscribers, thanks to 5G. In addition, many operators (42%) said that virtual reality services will go mainstream with 5G.

Operators Need to Be Team Players in 5G Arena

To succeed in the 5G sports market opportunity, the survey found that operators are already thinking about partnering with other ecosystem players, including tournament organisers, social media companies, device manufacturers as well as video game companies.

Furthermore, a majority of operators (75%) plan to ink partnerships with broadcasters and over the top (OTT) service providers to discover new ways of delivering sports content to customers. And 73% said they want to partner with virtual reality app providers.

Gary Miles, Amdocs Chief Marketing Officer, said: “Working with new types of partners on 5G and sports will give operators a vital role in a new digital business ecosystem. Out of a multitude of potential 5G use cases, our research shows that sports and esports is certainly among the most compelling.”
