Today, Hologram announced the pre-order for the next version of our Nova platform, a global LTE-M & NB-IoT Nova. This enables low power cellular prototyping via platforms like the Rapsberry Pi and BeagleBone Black.
How real-time is your driving application? For self-driving vehicles, it depends on architecture. Is your device using the cloud? Or edge computing? If it’s the latter, the answer truly depends on the speed and bandwidth of cellular 4G IoT networks. The average time for data to travel from cloud to car is about 100 milliseconds. For… Continue Reading
Starting last week on July 6th anyone in America importing Chinese electronic components (including wireless devices and components) may experience a 25% price increase. The jump in cost comes from a new U.S. import tariff covering some common electronic parts. The tariff is a result of the White House’s position on international trade. Particularly its… Continue Reading
Electric scooters are showing up in cities around the globe, often unprompted. These cellular connected devices showcase what is possible when software companies can rent out real world hardware. Read about how it could impact your next business idea.
We cover the best cellular IoT development boards and shields available in 2018. Most of these boards include support for the new LTE-M and NB-IoT standard, but with lack of ubiquitous NB-IoT coverage, we still see manufacturers releasing new boards that support 2G/3G.
Last week was a great week. Ryan and the team announced our new pricing along with a number of new dashboard features. Among the details, Hologram is the first to offer a cellular SLA in North America and the only provider that offers global coverage for the new 4G M1 and NB standards. The team… Continue Reading
We created a Hologram Compatible Hardware list to showcase the fastest ways to get started on the Hologram network, no hardware knowledge required.
Hologram’s network is designed to work with every piece of hardware in every country in the world. Hardware that cannot join our worldwide network is the exception, not the rule. But even a widely accessible network requires getting third party devices hooked in and transmitting properly. This guide (and the associated video below) goes over… Continue Reading
The great promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is understanding where and how your “things” are operating and optionally pushing commands back to those devices. A subset of the entire field is called “asset tracking”. These are mostly passive monitoring devices focused on telling where it is currently located; pushing commands to asset trackers… Continue Reading
TL; DR: We created a shared document that compares a wide range of cellular hardware (including our own). Use it to evaluate what is available in the marketplace to get your project started quickly. In my group at Hologram (Developer Relations), we need to work with a lot of hardware. In fact, the entire company… Continue Reading
