Sprint Velocity believes that vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications are huge business opportunities to car manufacturers and the automotive sector.

The M2M telematics services company offers vehicle connectivity through an open, cloud-based architecture with standard machine-to-machine interfaces.

“With more than 14 million vehicles sold in the US yearly, auto manufacturers are in a constant race to bring the newest, most versatile and technology-packed products to market,” said Ben Vos, vice president and general manager, Sprint Emerging Solutions.

“Automakers can win that race by offering the most advanced connected services… can translate into increased revenues and stronger customer loyalty,” said Vos.

Wireless comms firm CalAmp offers a device that plugs directly into the standard vehicle interface to connect to the Sprint Velocity mobile services.

“By having an economical, plug-and-play, full-featured vehicle monitoring and tracking device tap the power of the Sprint Velocity platform, we can extract valuable vehicle data to enable a variety of mobile services,” said Greg Gower, senior vice president and general manager of CalAmp’s Mobile Resource Management business.

The device provides wireless location and messaging which can be used for insurance, driver behavior management and vehicle maintenance applications that require access to vehicle performance data.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
