Ceredigion Rubbish Truck Council PR 12062024

12th June, 2024 (1 Comment)

The Growing Mid Wales (GMW) programme has launched a major new project in Mid Wales, which aims to identify areas with poor 4G mobile (mobile broadband) coverage and network capacity (“mobile not-spots“) by installing “advanced mobile data-capturing devices” on waste collection vehicles across Powys and Ceredigion.

13th May, 2024 (8 Comments)

Future wireless broadband and home networks, using technologies such as 6G or WiFi in the higher frequency mmW and sub-TeraHertz (THz) bands (i.e. between around 24GHz and 300GHz), could be set for a significant speed boost after researchers discovered a way to curve light beams around objects.

Mobile operator and UK ISP Vodafone have teamed up with Nokia Bell Labs to conduct a “world’s first trial” of the “viability” of harnessing L4S (Low Latency, Low Loss, and Scalable Throughput) technology over passive optical networks (PON), which could “greatly improve” network latency times for internet activities like AR, video conferencing and multiplayer gaming, even during peak hours.

Morse Micro HaLow WiFi Test on Beach

2nd February, 2024 (8 Comments)

Sydney-based fabless semiconductor startup Morse Micro has successfully demonstrated how outdoor Wi-Fi signals, using their HaLow (802.11ah) chips, can be made to work at distances that are many times the reach of a conventional Wi-Fi technology. The trial saw them push a working wireless network up to 3km from its source.

The UK communications regulator, Ofcom, has today published an interesting new white paper that, in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London, explores whether “reflective surfaces” could be used to cost-effectively extend the coverage of wireless broadband and mobile networks. But more research is required.

The Wi-Fi Alliance has today official begun certification for the next generation of Wi-Fi 7 (802.11be) capable wireless networking devices. The new Wi-Fi 7 standard is expected to “see rapid adoption“, with more than 233 million devices predicted to enter the market in 2024 alone. Just don’t expect to see those dizzy speed claims of 46Gbps in the real-world.

Space cat! Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California claims to have recently conducted the first video stream from deep space using lasers via their new Deep Space Optical Communications (DSOC) network, which naturally consisted of a 15-second video featuring “Taters” the cat chasing a laser cursor.

Satellite operator OneWeb (Eutelsat) is working with the Imperial College London (ICL) in England on a new project that will explore the possibility of harnessing the company’s ultrafast broadband satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to help monitor global space weather, which may in turn help to protect other satellites and ground services.

Capabilities of IMT-2030 for 6G Wireless and Mobile by ITU Dec 2023

2nd December, 2023 (14 Comments)

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has today published the first framework for the future 6G mobile (mobile broadband) and wireless networking technology (IMT-2030), which will support the development of related standards and radio interface technologies. The framework also reveals more about its potential capabilities.

20th November, 2023 (0 Comments)

A new technology has been created by a team of computer scientists at the University of Leicester (UL), which could improve speed and power consumption for users of mobile devices, particularly Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, and may help reap the benefits from the next generation of mobile broadband technology, 6G.


1st November, 2023 (1 Comment)

Digital Catapult has teamed-up with Ofcom, Cellnex UK and Capgemini to launch its first independent 5G SA (Standalone) outdoor field-testing site – via SONIC Labs – for Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) technology. The technology tested here could eventually make it into commercial mobile networks.


10th October, 2023 (11 Comments)

Nokia’s Bell Labs research division has established two new world records in submarine optical communications. The first achieved a net data rate of 800Gbps (Gigabits per second) on a single optical wavelength at a distance of 7865km, while the second hit a net throughput of 41Tbps (Terabits) over 291 km via a C-band unrepeated transmission system.

The Government has this morning announced that the UK is to join the Global Coalition on Telecommunications (GCOT) and commit £70m to the Future Telecoms UKRI Technology Missions Fund (TMF) Programme. Both of which are intended to help research and develop the next generation of telecoms, broadband and 6G networks etc.

AST SpaceMobile BlueWalker 3 Satellite with Earth

19th September, 2023 (5 Comments)

AST SpaceMobile, which is backed by Vodafone and several other mobile operators around the world, has followed up their earlier achievements in two-way 4G calling by harnessing their prototype BlueWalker 3 satellite in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to make the first space-based 5G internet voice call using a regular handset.
