Enhancing Warehouse Operations with Location Intelligence

DATE: Tuesday, April 12
TIME: 12:00 PM ET/11:00 AM CT

Location intelligence gives warehouse operators the ability to provide solutions to issues such as suboptimal utilization of material handling equipment and warehouse workflow congestion, in turn enhancing overall productivity of warehouses.

Indoor asset tracking solutions can enable fast, highly accurate tracing that could pinpoint process inefficiencies and smoothen warehouse operations by reducing order picking or putaway time and enabling rapid fulfillment.

This webinar covers how combining critical capabilities such as asset tracking within warehousing and logistical operations can address pain points such as inventory shrinkage, lengthy dwell time, yard management complications and extensive order fulfillment time. It includes use cases and examples from Yojee to illustrate the relevance and potential of the HERE platform for Supply Chain.

Evolving Hardware Security Module Technologies Redefining Information Security

Information protection is at the core of every security program in the era of cloud, data, and remote work. In a recent webinar, ABI Research Director Michela Menting and Utimaco’s Vice President Mario Galatovic discussed how Hardware Security Modules (HSM) can become a security game-changer and empower businesses to effectively create trusted foundations and remain vigilant against cyberthreats.

Beyond traditional data protection and key management, HSM applications of growing interest include cloud and inter-cloud/data center communications, machine identity management and device authentication, application security and code signing, digital payments, blockchain, and post-quantum cryptography.

According to Menting, “All of these factors are contributing to driving a dynamic HSM market going forward, which ABI Research forecasts to reach US$1.2 Billion by 2026, proposing a combination of service propositions, platform modularity, and feature-rich choice.”

Watch the webinar replay, 2022 Information Security Trends and Directions, to gain a better understanding of the trends and directions affecting HSM’s role in information security, as well as the risks, solutions, and best practices being developed to meet the evolving requirements ahead.

The companies evaluated and ranked include:

Market Leaders: Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica, Vodafone, KPN
Mainstream: AT&T, Verizon, Orange

China Leads the Way With Private 5G Networks at Industrial Facilities

Wall Street Journal

China is racing ahead in building the infrastructure of 5G networks, but it is inside factories, coal mines, shipyards and warehouses where the technology is really taking off. Last year, companies involved in their deployment generated $1.2 billion of revenue from 5G private networks serving businesses and governments in China, accounting for about a third of the global total and more than the revenue generated in Europe and North America combined, according to ABI Research, a technology research firm. The figure is a proxy for the scale of the deployments of such networks in China, says Leo Gergs, an analyst with ABI who studies the use of 5G networks by businesses.

The research firm expects China’s lead to widen in the coming years, given aggressive government targets. This year, it expects private-network revenue generated in China to rise about 60%. By 2025, it will top $5 billion, ABI forecasts.
