Customer Use Cases for Smart Home and Office

Customer Use Cases for Smart Home and Office - Efficient, Scalable and Reliable Solutions

Following are some of the common challenges and considerations in assuring wireless communications quality for the IoT devices used in the Smart Home and Smart Office field.

Home Electronics & Appliances

Smart Home Electrical Goods

What to consider when integrating wireless functionality into home electronics and appliances?

More and more appliances, previously without communication capabilities, such as refrigerators, garage doors, and vacuum cleaners, are now designed with wireless connectivity functions. This brings new challenges to device designers in order to assure the product quality.

VR/AR/MR Goggles, using Large Data Traffic in Real Time

Products, such as VR/AR/MR Goggles, using Large Data Traffic in Real Time

Is the throughput sufficient?

XR technology can improve performance in several use-case, such as entertainment and remote assist. XR products need to provide stable connection with high-definition, high-frame rate video transmission to deliver the improved performance. If an XR product’ s communications quality deteriorates on occasion, the end user may not receive the expected entertainment quality, causing disappointment with the product and possible loss of future sales for the company.

Have we verified the connection stability?

For the VR devices, sudden movements can increase latency, so it is necessary to confirm whether the connection remains stable.

Have we secured low power consumption?

Low power consumption is best for products with low data traffic and infrequent communications. Confirming the actual power consumption under the real use conditions is also recommended to ensure quality by keeping the battery life longer. The IoT device vendors select the suitable wireless technology and take care to design their products with the low power consumption needs in mind. That’ s why most IoT products are designed to realize minimized data transmission period. If an IoT product has some issues and starts to frequently retransmit data, this may become critical a issue that shortens battery life.

CPE/FWA Devices

CPE/FWA (Customer Premises Equipment/Fixed Wireless Access) Devices

Why do we need to verify the product performance after embedding the modules and antennas?

Wireless technology is complex, which is why it is necessary to confirm the performance of the finished products, as it might not satisfy the communication standards and regulations even if a wireless communications module itself does. As key factors for CPE/FWA devices, confirming the peak throughput performance and thermal status is very important.

RF Components, such as Antennas and Power Amplifiers

RF Components, such as Antennas and Power Amplifiers

What is expected of the RF components in actual 5G use cases?

RF components are one of the key aspects in determining the features of IoT devices. In order to enhance the wireless technology and the complicated wireless functionality, the verification at the RF components level, rather than at the finished product level, is no longer sufficient to ensure IoT device quality.
