Alpha Networks Showcases Integrated Wireless Products for Smart Cars and Healthcare Applications
The ubiquitous nature of the mobile Internet and the proliferation of network applications have optimized the concept of the Internet of Things or IoT. The IoT aims at creating a better digital lifestyle in a smart home in addition to other applications.
Alpha Networks, a specialist in the networking ODM/OEM industry, has developed new Internet of Things (IoT) technologies focused on smart applications for automobiles, healthcare, industrial control markets, mobile devices, home networking, multimedia and home surveillance.
Harrison Chang, president of Alpha Networks said, “Over the years, Alpha Networks has accumulated valuable experience in networking design and development. Our exceptional capability in this industry can be proven in multiple areas such as evolving network technologies and diversifying applications.”
At CES (News - Alert) 2014, Alpha Networks is showcasing a new integrated wireless product that synergizes the features of mobile enterprise solutions with Internet of Things (IoT) for future smart cars and remote health monitoring.
To make electric cars more intelligent and eco-friendly, Alpha Networks will be launching its 24GHz intelligent radar sensor featuring multiple-sensing capabilities. This will deliver smart detection features that can pick vehicle movement, speed, distance and other measurements as they occur. This helps in collision avoidance thereby making future cars more safe and reliable to drive.
The active sensing technology featured by the 24GHz intelligent radar sensor can monitor fuel level, dim car headlights, detect heartbeat and so on.
Alpha Networks is also introducing the multifunctional, 4G, Bluetooth, BLE, Wi-Fi module in healthcare applications for preventive care, remote health monitoring, automatic diagnostics and commercial-grade sensing control.
Also, IoT has been leveraged by Alpha to develop the smart wireless power switch for boosting the wireless signal at home, and to monitor electricity usage from a mobile device using a 3G/Wi-Fi network. This allows the remote monitoring of home appliances at all times.
In 2013 Alpha Networks unveiled its WHU-FAP10 WCDMA and Wi-Fi small cell. This small cell product from Alpha Networks incorporates UltraSON self-organizing network technology provided by Qualcomm Technologies and Qualcomm Atheros (News - Alert) subsidiaries of Qualcomm Incorporated. This technology is designed to augment network capacity and coverage through densification of WCDMA small cells, thereby enhancing the end-user experience.
