A Glimpse into Our History- IoT, connected cars, smart cities
Welcome to our Newsletter
Welcome to our first newsletter. Given we’re in Year 8 (has it been eight lucky years? Yes it has) of operation, we figured we were due. Why the Signal? We specialize in analog insight in a digital world. Hence, the Signal.To make up for lost time we’re shooting for a monthly newsletter.Today we take a quick look back at the ground we’ve covered; provide some recent articles from us; and most importantly ask for your input on what kind of content you’d like to see in this newsletter. Please let us know at this VERY SIMPLE survey.
It’s been fun looking back at some of our earlier engagements: benchmarking Android when there were only two models in the market; standing in an e-recycling facility seeing where old phones and TVs go; developing the ATSC Mobile DTV Standard. Later, reviewing the fine print in an investment document, or figuring out the economics and network requirements of cloud gaming. More recently our engagements have become more industrial in focus: connected car; cybersecurity; industrial IoT; AI and robotics.
At a time when all things are being connected and the value at stake is tremendous, we are privileged to do the work we do, and are grateful to our clients for their belief in us.
With that, we look forward to your feedback, and to continuing our dialogue with you.
