The “internet of things“ will un doubtfully be one of the key growth sectors in cellular communication over the next decade. The usage of software defined radio (SDR) is a desired requirement for network providers who seek long term, future proof support of their installed telemetry , automotive and household appliances. However cost and power were considered prohibitive, now with ASOCS technology such barrier to entry is removed.
ASOCS will support this market by offering several key features:
- Future Proof – The combination of state of the art Over The Air (OTA) and ASOCS software programmable processors can enable advanced usages ensuring years and sometimes decades of operations:
(a) Upgrading to new versions of a specific air-interface
(b) Upgrading to a new generation of wireless technologies
(c) Self healing in low reception areas
- Multi-Communication – ASOCS enables devices to encompass both legacy telemetry networks, and widespread cellular networks (such as GSM) into a single, economical platform
- Main/Fall back connections – An inherent ability to support a main operation (for example GSM ) with a more operationally expensive link , such as satellite, in case of loss of reception
