Connecting devices to the Internet, also known as the Internet of Things (IoT), is a technological process that has vastly changed the way we live our daily lives.
IoT is deeply ingrained in various professional sectors around the world. Successful medical centers and business corporations are making the most of its applications, and we are now witnessing its growing popularity within the education sector.
According to the eMarketer Statistical Report, it was estimated that among 12-17 year olds, 83.2% of them own a smartphone. Furthermore, more than 70% of parents had said that their children had a smartphone between the ages of 11 and 13, while another 31% claimed that their children had them between the ages of 6 and 10.
Due to the increasing influence of IoT and mobile technology, there has been a significant impact both inside and outside the classroom and has made e-learning a common practice within various school systems around the world.
Thanks to these advances, educational institutions can improve the security of their campus, keep track of essential resources and improve access to all kinds of information within a learning environment. Furthermore, this also helps teachers to use these IoT applications to create smart plans for future lessons instead of sticking to the old traditional teaching methods.
IoT also offers personalized learning through software downloaded to Internet-connected devices. These specific softwares can detect a student’s deficiencies in their learning abilities and suggest to instructors how certain learning materials can be modified to suit and assist these students, allowing teachers to be more aware of their students’ progress. in real time.
Automation is another highly integrated factor in education. School administrators can benefit from artificial intelligence to produce their daily, monthly, and annual reports on a wide range of matters, such as financial planning data, student progress, and school board reports.
Plus, as long as you’re connected to a digital device anywhere in the world, you can quickly access a world of knowledge. Even outside of the classroom, 4G Internet services have helped people attend educational seminars or online classes, regardless of where they are in the world. This has been of great help during the COVID pandemic, where students and teachers were able to connect and study online from the comfort of their own home, minimizing health risks and maximizing educational influence.
IoT is the future of enhanced education, and there is still much more that we have to witness in the progress of IoT within our educational institutions.
Therefore, it has become more critical than ever to achieve further improvements within IoT applications, and Sequans Communications is already one step ahead in turning that plan into reality.
Founded by Georges Karam, Sequans Communications is a factory-less semiconductor company that creates chips and modules for 4G and 5G IoT devices. The company’s influence has expanded exponentially over the years in the United States, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore, and many more.
The pandemic has created a huge demand for private distance learning networks and Sequans Communication has worked on two unique connectivity devices that connect the USB dongle with laptops or other types of USB-based equipment to CBRS OnGo networks to help to solve distance learning problems. Dennis Wu, Vice President of Sales and Business Development for AMIT Wireless said: “We selected Sequans Cassiopeia CB610L module to provide the connectivity for our USB dongle and WAN extender because Sequans is an expert in 3.5 GHz connectivity, and we believe that it is the most robust and feature-rich CBRS connectivity solution available every day. “
For years, their skills have allowed them to create high-quality chips, and their LTE services have been certified by various carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, Orange, and NTT Docomo. The team behind Sequans Communications is dedicated to providing its customers with modules for 4G and 5G connectivity and providing solutions to generate future innovations within IoT applications, which will continue to transform industries in ways that will surprise us for the better.
