5G’s Move to Mobile Technology

October 23, 2018 by Matt Louden

5G NR

In case you missed it, 5G is back in the news courtesy of Verizon’s recent announcement and T-Mobile’s multibillion-dollar deal. While we started preparing for these next-generation wireless networks months ago, most of the conversation has centered around broadband connectivity. Until now. Last December, 3GPP—the organization that oversees global cellular standards—approved 5G New Radio (NR) as the world’s first mobile 5G spectrum. Since then, several network operators have taken massive steps toward making this technology viable on a global scale. So, what do these recent developments mean for your enterprise’s mobility effort? 5G NR Brings Never-Before-Seen Speeds If you thought today’s mobile technology was fast, buckle up. Because 5G NR will operate through network bands that have only recently been made available by regulators, expect this traffic-free access to enable skyrocketing data communication speeds. Until now, the upper end of…

Untethered 2018

Another year—another best Untethered yet. This year’s event saw a record number of attendees, customers, and prospects in Indianapolis. Why? “Year after year, Untethered is a highlight for MOBI, our customers, and our partners,” said MOBI CEO Scott Kraege. “The event is a huge opportunity for prospects to get a behind-the-scenes look into how we operate. Our combined recipe of unique culture, customer-first hustle, bad-ass platform, and own-it attitude mix for a great event.” For many enterprises, this annual event also serves as the best networking opportunity for meeting the MOBI professionals and account teams helping them manage mobile technology every day. “Your people are as strong as your technology,” said one customer in attendance at this year’s Untethered. “Getting a chance to meet the individuals who support us so well is invaluable—they assume our problems as their problems and…

Delivering Value Through Data

October 15, 2018 by Matt Louden

user data

User data is more valuable than ever. Don’t believe it? Last month, a computer science professor at Vanderbilt looked at how much data mobile technology companies truly collect—the results were staggering. An unused, unmoved Android smartphone with Chrome actively running in the background was found to communicate user data to Google 340 times over a 24-hour period. That’s an average of 14 transfers every hour. Location data was the most heavily targeted information—35% of all samples sent focused on these insights. However, not all companies are created equal. Compared to its primary competitor, iOS endpoints actively running Safari sent almost fifty times fewer requests to Apple during the same span. In general, it appears idle Android devices communicate with Google almost 10 times more frequently than Apple’s devices do with their own manufacturer’s internal servers. User data—and the platforms used…
