New Products and Technologies
Long Term Evolution (LTE), also known as 4G, is a technology designed to deliver data over the radio wave spectrum typically between 700MHz-2600MHz. With the demand for bandwidth increasing, technology providers like MikroTik have adapted their product line to include several high-performance LTE devices. Choosing MikroTik over conventional entry-level LTE products has many advantages. It is packed with functionality and is available in different form factors with high-gain MIMO antennas to cater for long-distance applications. All models include PoE which allows users to make the most of their signal without introducing long antenna cables with associated loss.
Ubiquiti have decided to remove all pricing plans. That means exactly what it says — UNMS Cloud is now completely free of charge! Having a reliable network and business management tool is crucial for any WISP. Unfortunately, some companies offer these types of tools at inflated prices that affect an already tight budget. Ubiquiti's goal is to empower anyone who would like to start a new WISP to help provide internet connectivity where coverage is lacking, and this is their contribution to this effort.
Ubiquiti launches the Ubiquiti Speedtest, the first public test network integrated with enterprise network equipment. Ubiquiti Speedtest comprises a network of test servers and built-in speed test capabilities. Reports include uplink/downlink throughput and latency. Sharing the results is easy via email or social media.
Ubiquiti selected the highest performance models from Ring, Nest, and Arlo and benchmarked them against the UniFi G4 Pro. This Blog post discusses the test results.
What is AI? AI, or Artificial Intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processed by computers, this means that computers have the ability to perform human tasks and make its own logical decisions without human intervention. AI has the ability to analyse data in real time much faster, more reliable and efficient than any human can. Therefore AI is used to perform both simple and really complicated tasks, and is designed to be more accurate and to assist humans in day to day activities.
