Emanate Wireless Awarded Competitive Grant from the National Science Foundation for Healthcare IoT Solutions

CLEVELAND, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Emanate Wireless has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $255K to conduct research and development work on a unique healthcare IoT solution: Utilization, Condition, and Location System (UCLS). UCLS uses smart tags with sensors and machine learning algorithms to track the utilization, condition and location of medical equipment within a healthcare facility. The NSF funding will support pilot trials with three major hospital groups.

Managing medical devices is one of the top cost centers for a hospital. UCLS provides actionable insights to healthcare administrators to help them discover under-utilized equipment, optimize equipment workflows and implement usage and condition-based maintenance schedules. Current hospital asset tracking solutions (known as RTLS) attempt to track the location of assets, but do not provide context on what the device is doing or how effectively it is operating. The addition

New Ttint IoT botnet caught exploiting two zero-days in Tenda routers

Tenda

For almost a year, a threat actor has been using zero-day vulnerabilities to install malware on Tenda routers and build a so-called IoT (Internet of Things) botnet.

Named Ttint, this botnet was first detailed in a report published on Friday by Netlab, the network security division of Chinese tech giant Qihoo 360.

But unlike the myriad of IoT botnets of its kind spotted in the past, Netlab researchers said Ttint was different on several levels.

It didn’t just infect devices to perform DDoS attacks, but also implemented 12 different remote access methods to the infected routers, used the routers as proxies to relay traffic, tampered with the router’s firewall and DNS settings, and even gave attackers the ability to execute remote commands on the infected devices.

“Two zero-days, 12 remote access functions for the router, encrypted traffic protocol, and infrastructure […] that that moves around.

At This Valuation, Intel’s IoT Segment Could Provide The Only Growth They Need (NASDAQ:INTC)

After my last article on 7nm’s inability to kill off “dinosaur” tech over the last 8 quarters, I wanted to extrapolate on some of the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSM) revenue data in order to get a bigger picture view. This will be most pertinent for an investor looking to analyze the potential revenue trends for the chipmakers that are TSMC’s direct customers and/or their customers’ competitors, such as Intel (INTC), Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Nvidia (NVDA), Broadcom (AVGO), Qualcomm (QCOM), Micron (MU) and others.

It will especially help in analyzing the potential in Intel’s Internet of Things Group (IOTG), and also provide some supplemental context on how much the 7nm delay is likely to influence Intel’s long-term profitability and revenue prospects in the segments which most rely on cutting edge technology nodes for semiconductors (like high performance computing) moving forward.

My last article showed the movements in TSMC’s revenue
