I recently switched to a new dental practice after my old dentist retired from the business. Like most people, I don’t look forward to having my teeth and gums poked and prodded, so I was especially anxious as I waited to meet my new dentist and hygienist. It didn’t help matters that the waiting room was less than Zen-like. Not only was the quality of light like a windowless department store circa 1975 (picture bright, blue-hued fluorescent tubes), but one of the bulbs or ballasts was on the fritz, creating the type of irritating buzz that one would expect from a miniature golf course bug zapper. When my wait was extended due to an emergency procedure ahead of me, you can only imagine how my state of mind was aggravated further…

5g stats

Despite the success of 4G, there has been an industry push to increase speeds dramatically not only for today’s uses but for applications that let data drive 8K video, remote access to broadband, remote medicine and learning, autonomous vehicles, and a whole range of possibilities that now require hard-wired network connectivity. Delivering all of that and more is what 5G is all about. Here’s a look at some 5G and mobile usage statistics as you contemplate what has been called the “Fourth Industrial Revolution.”…

we ask industry insiders one question

We do a lot of work in MDU projects, and more recently we’ve begun designing and providing the access control portion of these projects. One of these projects can often have 50 or more camera locations, full integration with the elevator control and life safety systems, and often hundreds of additional control points. These systems can be large, often adding $300,000 or more to the overall project revenue for us.

It’s a problem I’ve run into in my own home, commanding Alexa to turn on the living room lights only to be left standing in darkness as I recall Alexa’s new name is “Computer” and the command to turn on the lights is, “It’s dark.” Now, imagine my grandmother has come over for a visit and walks into my living room. I doubt her first instinct is to shout into the darkness, “Computer, it’s dark!” But, what if when she came to my home, and I instructed her to simply walk up to the illuminated 12-inch panel on my…
