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
The SIM card has been around since the early 90s. It is a small, removable piece of silicon and copper encased in plastic. There are pads to interface to a modem or a processor, which allow the device to authenticate on a network as unique. If that unique SIM device has a plan with a… Continue Reading
Today we’re proud to make two major release announcements: Multi-Factor Authentication and the next iteration of the Hologram Global Dash. Multi-Factor Authentication for Connected Devices Already standard for much of the internet, existing multi-factor authentication methods protect user accounts from unauthorized access. They typically require something you know, such as a username/password, in addition to… Continue Reading
The first line of code that you write and the first components that you choose should set you up to scale. Don’t let cellular bandwidth stand in your way.
Connectivity is a fragmented space. Hologram’s working on changing that, and we’ve taken the first steps by launching our toolkit, Nova.
Introducing Nova. Making cellular connectivity simple and scalable.
Open-sourcing our hardware helps us clarify who we are and why we do what we do. Hologram is a connectivity company. Everything we do is to lower or eliminate barriers around securely connecting things to the internet.
The latest Hologram updates means even more powerful networks. Imagine the solar energy companies having greater capacity to store excess photovoltaic power. Imagine warehouses being able to reduce risk of injury by using more technical solutions. Imagine the future.
