Ericsson is effectively addressing the challenge of battery life with a software-only upgrade to existing LTE networks. Ongoing standardization of low-power, low-cost LTE modules and devices specifically targeted at IoT applications will fuel stronger growth in the LTE segment. AT&T and Ericsson are committed to LTE for IOT and jointly supported a recent 3GPP work-item for NB-IoT targeted for inclusion in 3GPP Release 13 in 2016 for ultra-low cost applications. Ericsson has announced it will join AT&T and chipset provider Altair to demonstrate LTE Power Saving Mode on commercial LTE Internet of Things (IoT) chipset platforms at the GSMA Mobile 360 Series – North America event on October 27-29 in Atlanta, Georgia. The demonstration will be held in the AT&T booth running on Ericsson networks and Altair’s FourGee-1160 Cat 1 chipset featuring ultra-low power consumption.Long-term battery life has become a prerequisite for a vast number of IoT applications. Many IoT devices are not located near a power source and depend on battery power for long-duration operation. With the sheer number of connected IoT devices, the cost of going out into the field to replace batteries isn’t viable. Many modules need to be “fit and forget,” without any need for maintenance or replacement over the lifetime of the device or application.Power Saving Mode is an Ericsson Evolved Packet Core feature based on 3GPP (Release 12) for both GSM and LTE networks. The feature is able to dramatically extend IoT device battery life up to ten years or more for common use cases and traffic profiles. This capability is defined for both LTE and GSM technologies and lets devices enter a new deep sleep mode – for hours or even days at a time – and only wake up when needed. For devices that need only intermittent network contact, this is a very effective energy- saving feature. This Power Saving Mode feature is available in Ericsson SGSN-MME Release 16A.Power Saving Mode running on a Cat 1 device enables new use cases and services so far impractical for LTE based IoT networks. IoT connectivity is essential to helping businesses stay tethered to their assets around the world. Whether a trucking company hauls expensive cargo across the country or a restaurant transports fresh food overseas, a long battery life on their connected devices can help them provide continuous service. Businesses can save money and become more efficient with battery replacements every few years rather than very few months.

Paine was from Anchorage and had extensive military experience. He had been a pilot for more than two decades and taught others about aerobatic flight, including stall and spin awareness. Federal Aviation Administration officials were attending the airshow at Madras Airport and are investigating, along with local police. The 61-year-old crashed while apparently attempting a very low-altitude loop in a Boeing Stearman at about 3pm Saturday.
Junior middleweight Patrick Day is fighting for his life in a Chicago hospital after suffering a 10th-round knockout against Charles Conwell on Saturday night. The fight took place at Wintrust Arena on the undercard of Oleksandr Usyk’s heavyweight debut, which ended with a seventh-round TKO of Chazz Witherspoon.Day, 27, was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital after being knocked unconscious by the undefeated Conwell. Day was down for several minutes before a medical staff took him away on a gurney in a frightening scene. He suffered a seizure before arriving at the hospital and remained unconscious. A source close to the Day family told DAZN News that Day underwent emergency brain surgery to reduce swelling and was in a medically induced coma.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year Conwell, a 2016 U.S. Olympian, dominated much of the fight but there was no sense Day was in danger until he was dropped with a left hook. The fighter from New York went down hard with his head bouncing violently off the canvas. He was out cold and referee Celestino Cruz immediately called a halt to the bout at 1:46 of Round 10. Day lay motionless as he received immediate medical treatment.He was administered a breathing tube at the hospital prior to surgery, the source told DAZN News.Day (17-4-1) is a former WBC continental Americas super welterweight champion who suffered his second consecutive loss after winning six fights in a row from April 2016 to February 2019. He was named as an Olympic alternate in 2012.
