Trends in 2020: Digital and Efficient!
In 2020, instead of the originally planned six e-magazines issues, a total of eight e-magazine issues with be published in German and English. In addition to the publication program, the informative exhibitor magazine of the RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2020 will be published digitally.
"In 2020 the trends are 'digital and efficient'. As an international publishing house, we have already been involved in digital formats, daily news, 100% in-house text work, and the embedding of social media channels for years. Today, our readers benefit from this," says Anja Van Bocxlaer, Editor-in-Chief, RFID im Blick and RFID & Wireless IoT Global.
"We too, are feeling the impact of the Corona crisis head on. Anything we do editorially must therefore generate a very high added value. This is the entrepreneurial answer to the crisis: We demand quality in editorial work and high value creation. My personal answer to the crisis is simple. I am convinced of the innovative power of the WIoT industry and that we, as a publishing team, will continue to hoist the flag for the industry. Restraint or withdrawal is not an option!"
For this reason, in 2020, 8 e-magazines will be published instead of 6 as originally planned, in German and English. In addition to the publishing program, the informative exhibitor magazine of the RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2020 will be published digitally.
The Next Issues will be Published in:
- August 2020: Laundries and Textile Logistics
- September 2020: RFID & Wireless IoT Technologies
- October 2020: Logistics and Supply Chain
- November 2020: Industry 4.0
Special Edition 'RFID & Wireless IoT Technologies 2020'
The special edition 'RFID & Wireless IoT Technologies 2020' will be published for the first time this year. The focus lies on these technologies:
BLE, operating at 2.4 GHz, enables devices to send or receive data over distances of up to 100 meters. The solution-dependent energy consumption guarantees a battery lifespan of up to 10 years for the beacons.
SAW technology uses the surface acoustic wave effect. Ultrasonic signals are reflected at markings on tag surfaces. SAW tags can even be used in applications at temperatures exceeding 300 degrees Celsius.
RFID and NFC are radio technologies. The advantage of predominantly passive transponders in RFID solutions: They do not require their own energy supply. Hybrid combinations make it possible to collect data with different devices.
Mobile networks such as 4G/5G offer data rates of up to 20 Gbit/s, increased frequency capacity and data throughput, real-time transmission and a latency of less than 1 ms.
UWB is mainly used in RTLS applications in frequency ranges from 3.1 GHz to 10.6 GHz in short range real-time indoor localization and tracking applications. A WiFi-based RTLS can often use existing WiFi structures.
LPWAN technologies such as Sigfox, NB IoT or LoRaWAN are designed to enable communication over long distances (up to several kilometers) at a low bit rate between connected objects, such as battery-powered sensors.
