With talk of a 5G mobile network slated to launch sometime in 2020, cellular carriers and consumers in the know are equally delighted: 5G will mean more than 10 times the current capacity of even the best 4G LTE. Still, with the announcement of this and other technological advancements, some are concerned about what the debut of new technology could mean for the cellular industry as we know it.

It has been estimated that there will be no less than 50 billion connected devices online by 2020. Before the promise of billions of connected devices sharing information can be realized, there is the question of how, exactly, most of these devices will be connected. Internet of Things (IoT) solution providers and those supplying them are keenly interested in the answer since it will help determine how those solutions and their components are architected. Will specialized networks be built, or will an existing technology, such as Wi-Fi, LAN, satellite or cellular, fill the void?
Plano, Texas – Parsec Technologies, Inc., a global provider of advanced antenna and semiconductor technology announces a new line of high efficiency LTE antennas beginning with the PTA700-LTE Antenna.

DETROIT (Reuters) - General Motors Co will generate $350 million in improved profit over the three years to 2018 from its rollout of 4G LTE mobile broadband in its cars and trucks, the No. 1 U.S. automaker's chief financial officer said on Wednesday.
Chuck Stevens, speaking at a Bank of America Merrill Lynch conference, called GM's OnStar 4G LTE connection an "untapped, under-appreciated opportunity."
4G LTE is a wireless connection that allows faster flow of data and developing better in-car technology is critical to automakers like GM to attract younger, tech-savvy buyers.
BRUSSELS/BARCELONA (Reuters) - The European Union is looking to sign agreements with China and Japan and the United States to cooperate on developing the next generation of mobile broadband as it seeks to help its companies catch up in the race to develop such technologies.
Europe, once a leader in the 1990s in the second-generation GSM technology standard for mobile phone networks moving into the digital era, has fallen behind the United States, Japan and South Korea in the deployment of the latest 4G standard for mobile broadband services.
Geo IoT is anticipated to move well beyond simply the ability to determine proximity for commerce and various retail applications. Longer term, presence detection and location determination will be a critical aspect of IoT privacy, security, and preference management for both consumer and industrial applications.
