The commercial use of low-orbit satellites still needs to be integrated, but the industry has its own plans

Published

on

Taiwan’s industry has a lot of layout in the low-orbit satellite supply chain, from the chip end, radio frequency component end, antenna system, etc. Manufacturers capable of “docking” with satellite communication signals. However, since the application for the license was opened, the actual number of deliveries as of December 29 is not many. After all, it is because of regulatory restrictions, construction costs, and even commercial benefits. Everyone has their own plans, and Taiwan’s low-orbit satellite communication application “landing” may still have a long way to go.

The Russo-Ukraine war that broke out since February this year has highlighted the problem that in times of war, natural disasters and other extraordinary times, once the national society faces the problem of disconnection of cables and internet, communications may be interrupted, and low-orbit satellites can just act as “communication cables in the sky.” function, a key role in keeping communication systems functioning. The Taiwan government plans to set up more than 700 fixed-point or low-orbit satellite signal receiving stations with mobile functions in the next two years in all counties and cities in Taiwan, and strive to maintain domestic communications in times of natural disasters such as earthquakes or even wars. Certain ability to operate.

In terms of public use, low-orbit satellites can play the role of an alternative communication network backbone when the submarine cable is cut off, and important information including disaster prevention and rescue information, news dissemination, etc., can also be transmitted smoothly without interference when disasters occur. The location where the satellite signal receiving station is built may include existing telecommunication signal towers, or even fire trucks at mobile receiving points, etc., equipped with low-orbit satellite or medium-orbit satellite receivers, and then transmit messages through 4G/5G networks to each user’s mobile phone.

However, in addition to the “public” functions of low-orbit satellites, “commercial functions” are a must-have for all telecom manufacturers. Unfortunately, due to domestic laws and regulations restricting low-orbit satellite license applicants, overseas investors can only own a maximum of 49% of the shares, and the remaining 51% must be held by Taiwanese. , which is also at odds with the business strategies of some satellite operators. Therefore, the entire process of negotiating a commercial LEO satellite network cooperation agreement cannot be said to be very smooth.

The 4G and even 5G mobile signal coverage in the metropolitan area of ​​Taiwan is not low, and the low-orbit satellites are not only used for public emergency rescue communications, but the biggest advantage is that compared with the construction process between 4G and 5G base stations , saving the construction cost of the ground section. Therefore, if renewable energy such as solar energy can be used as the power source of the satellite signal receiving station, the flexibility of the location of the receiving station will be further improved.

From CLP’s point of view, due to its state-owned and private status, it is the “last mile” of the construction of the communication network, which is for the broadband network communication that many rural tribes lack, and the supplement for disaster prevention communication in mountainous areas. Satellite business development has a certain degree of responsibility, so it is more active in its actions and showing the openness of cooperation with overseas satellite operators. For CLP, the big brother in the telecommunications industry, satellite applications may be just an act of “fulfilling responsibility” in the initial stage.

In a joint interview with the media a few days ago, Taiwan’s general manager expressed that he continued to work hard in the process of applying for a low-orbit satellite license, but kept silent about the progress of the application, saying only that “everyone will know when the time comes.” Perhaps it also more or less means that under the conditions of high communication network coverage in Taiwan’s metropolitan area and very limited applications in rural and mountainous areas, it is not easy to find the balance between new applications of low-orbit satellites and corporate operating income. .

Observing the progress of the satellite network deployment of the current international low-orbit satellite industry, there is no doubt that the low-orbit satellite network Starlink (Starlink), which SpaceX is responsible for launching, has made the fastest progress. According to overseas media materials, Starlink is currently operating in space orbit. There are already more than 3,000 satellites, and other companies that are actively taking a share in this field include OneWeb jointly owned by the British government and India, Canada’s Telesat, and Kuiper, a low-orbit satellite company affiliated to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. But the progress is not as good as Starlink.

5G private network is gradually fermenting, and ODM manufacturers are grabbing card slots

Published

on

By

5G is an indispensable weapon for the digital transformation of various industries. In recent years, major electronic assembly companies have actively deployed the 5G private network market, hoping to seize opportunities in the fields of smart manufacturing, medical care, and transportation. Although the proportion of 5G-related revenue of each company is still relatively low, there is an opportunity to grow gradually as applications continue to expand.

The characteristics of 5G are low latency, high bandwidth, and large connections. After being built as an enterprise private network, it can become a network system with a specific purpose to help enterprises carry out digital transformation, and can penetrate into application fields such as smart manufacturing, medical care, transportation, education, and entertainment. .

Major electronic assembly companies have entered the 5G market with their server and network equipment hardware manufacturing capabilities, including Quanta, Inventec, Wistron, Compal, Pegatron, etc., and have actively deployed the 5G private network market in recent years.

As for Wistron, its server factory, Wiwynn, is actively investing in the development of the edge computing market, investing in a number of open radio access network (Open RAN)-based 5G private network verification projects, cutting into the distributed units in the 5G network ( DU), central unit (CU), core network, and other edge computing applications.

Wiwynn also cooperated with Ciena, a major network equipment manufacturer, to participate in the 5G smart factory verification field project in Germany of the world’s largest telecom tower supplier; it also developed a low-latency mixed reality (Mixed- Reality) application.

As for Quanta, its server factory, Yunda, has also cooperated with a number of Taiwanese system integrators. With the QCT OmniPOD 5G enterprise private network equipped with Intel and the QCT POD HPC & AI integrated platform as the infrastructure, it has now cut into smart manufacturing, Medical, higher education, urban and entertainment applications. Including assisting Singapore University of Technology and Design to use Campus 5G to incubate commercial digital transformation, and working with German companies to expand applications in industrial transformation such as smart medical care, logistics, and production.

As early as 2018, Compal actively deployed 5G enterprise private network, and cooperated with Qualcomm in 2019 to join hands with many technology and start-up companies in Taiwan to build ASE Kaohsiung Plant as the world’s first 5G millimeter wave enterprise private network smart factory . At the same time, Compal and Qualcomm also have long-term close cooperation in the fields of 5G modules and XR applications, providing a number of 5G+AIoT wireless application products and solutions.

Compal also cooperated with the Kaohsiung City Government to enter Kaohsiung Yawan 5G AIoT Innovation Park. Previously, the 5G AIoT R&D Center was officially opened. Manufacturing, health care, cloud gaming and other four major areas.

As for Inventec, it has completed the verification of the actual field assembly line level of 5G smart factories in the first half of the year, and will provide 5G end-to-end solutions for the manufacturing industry in the future. In addition to conducting O-RAN application integration verification in the 5G field, Inventec plans to conduct more 5G O-RAN application integration verification planning solutions through the 5G open laboratory in the second half of the year, and complete the application integration from the laboratory to the field , focusing on more 5G solution applications for smart factories.

Recently, Inventec has also invited Intel, Microsoft and other partners to build 5G Next Lab to build 5G connectivity solutions for enterprises. The solution is based on Intel chips and Microsoft core network software, and can be applied to 5G public networks and private networks. network.

Inventec pointed out that the Japanese and Taiwan markets currently have relatively complete regulations on frequency spectrum, which is where future opportunities lie. As for other markets, the biggest difficulty lies in the tightness of local regulations. Therefore, the development of overseas markets still has to wait. There will only be a chance when local regulations become clearer.

Pegatron has actively developed 5G vertical integration since 2020, and continues to develop 5G technology in multiple application fields such as smart factories, transportation, and disaster relief. Previously, it also cooperated with Taiwan Microsoft and Shenbo Communications to jointly develop 5G-ORAN base stations. Pegatron’s 5G enterprise mobile private network is expected to be commercialized in 2023. The company believes that there is a great opportunity to expand in ground stations, and will continue to invest in antennas and modems (modems) to continue to expand the market.

On the whole, the current 5G O-RAN market application is still in the initial stage of introduction, and each ODM factory will focus on the field verification of its own smart factory at this stage. Gradually grow as the application continues to expand.

Recently updated to the computer version of Evernote 10.50.9, a long-awaited feature has been added. Finally, in a note, you can quickly find other notes and insert note links by searching , without having to go to other notes to copy note links Paste it again.

Although in my actual use experience (including Notion , Logseq and other tools), there are still many times when it is necessary to find and confirm the note first, then copy the link of the note, and then insert it into other notes.

But adding a quick search to directly insert a note link can still save a lot of time when inserting notes.

Further reading on linked applications:

  • How to quickly find information when you have tens of thousands of documents? Four Evernote Organization Tips
  • Evernote Organizing: The List of Contents Taxonomy Should Be Prioritized
  • Design links, reduce productivity friction, and reduce finishing time

After the PC version software is updated to Evernote 10.50.9, there are two new ways to insert note links of other notes:

  • In the “+” menu, select “Note Link”
  • Use the shortcut keys Ctrl + Alt + K (need to switch to alphanumeric mode)

Then, enter keywords in the note search engine, filter out the notes you want to insert, and click OK to insert the note link immediately.
And in the new version of Evernote, note links can display three display modes:

  • Text: Just like the previous green text link, it is the default mode.
  • Title: A green note title will be displayed, and the name will be updated according to the title of the source note.
  • Preview: In addition to the note title of the link object, there is also a graphic preview at the beginning.

These three display modes can be switched at will. In addition to simple text links, the “Title” link allows us to update the note title at any time, and the “Preview” link makes it easier to identify (highlight) important project task notes.In addition, in the new version of Evernote 10.50.9, you can set different preview modes for note links and attached files in the “Notes” setting:

  • Note link: whether to use text or title preview
  • Image: To display a preview image, or file name
  • PDF: whether to use the title of the file name, or single-page or multi-page preview
  • Google Drive files: text or title
  • YouTube Videos: To use a link title, or a preview of the live-playable video

These preview methods can also be manually switched for specific file links at any time according to different needs!

Although everyone loves to use tools such as Notion or Obsidian in recent years , I still like to use Evernote for personal notes. I only use Notion for project collaboration. This new feature is also shared with friends who are still using Evernote.

Here are a few of my favorite new Evernote features:

  • Evernote 10.15 introduces a new function of “To-Do List Management” that is most suitable for the logic of task notes!
  • Evernote automatic periodic task graphic teaching, habit formation, routine work, learning reminder
  • Start in 2022: Build your own time management portal, take my Evernote system as an example

“Personal Digital Productivity” online course Q&A, take advantage of the lowest price of pre-order early bird to attend the class!
A few days ago, my “Personal Digital Productivity” online course reached the target of 300 students, and I unlocked the teaching units of the three major digital tools of Evernote, Notion, and Google. this course:
• Personal digital productivity|30 problem-solving, habit-forming, efficient output, and time-management modules of the computer toy Esor
• Four chapters, 30 units, a total length of 450 minutes
• Building a Bulletproof Second Brain
• Dismantling bullet action time
• Design Agile Workflows
• Start the Bulletproof Atomic Habit
Readers and friends of computer toys are reminded to take advantage of the ” Personal Digital Productivity ” online course pre-purchase discount to buy it as soon as possible. The following also uses a complete and in-depth Q&A to answer your common questions about this course.
Question: What tools will be covered in this course? Does it help if I use different digital tools?
The core of this course is “method application modules using digital tools to improve efficiency”, rather than hoping that you must use which digital tools, but as long as you can master these “method application modules”, no matter which one you use Digital note-taking tools, to-do list software, and project management systems can all be applied and help you truly use digital tools to improve productivity.
In the pre-class questionnaire survey, the vast majority of friends think that the real difficulty in this era is not how to operate the functions of digital tools (instead, many friends do not want to waste too much time on learning tool functions), but what is behind the tools Application can really improve the logic of productivity, as well as creative thinking on how to solve real work, life and study problems .
So this course will also focus on this kind of “applied logic” and “creative thinking” that can be used universally, so that you can apply it to different tools without any problem.
Just like a recent class, a student came to me after class and asked me that he is currently using Onenote, does he need to switch to Notion or Evernote? I said that the most productive way is to ask yourself what you currently have, and then improve and fine-tune it. As long as you master the core application methods and understand the operation logic of the digital workflow, then various tools can improve productivity.
However, the actual case demonstrations in this course will focus on Evernote, Notion, and Google cloud tool systems . And in the unlocking unit (the unlocking has been confirmed), according to how Evernote, Notion, and Google three major digital tools construct a system in line with the course description, the teaching instructions of the “quick start function” will be recorded to help the beginners of the digital tools. Advanced beginners can also be handy, and don’t waste too much time learning tool functions .
Question: How is this class different from Bulletproof Notes or previous books?
The ” Bulletproof Notebook Method ” launched this year (2022/7) has won the support of many friends. In the book, I also explained in detail a set of work organization principles centered on “task notes”. Later, in the 10 consecutive online reading sessions, I found that many friends wanted to know how to use them in actual work cases, life problems, and tool use after knowing the principles of organization, and wanted to see more practical ones. demonstration.
And in the questionnaire survey before this class, nearly half of the friends in the more than 1,000 questionnaires mentioned that they hope to see more “practical cases”, implement the steps to solve real and specific problems, and learn how to solve problems in different places. Solutions to specific problems .
So it can be said that the course ” Personal Digital Productivity ” is the “practical application version” of all my previous methodology books.
There are expected to be 30 units, from “Building a Bulletproof Second Brain”, “Dismantling Bullet Action Time”, “Designing an Agile Workflow”, to “Starting a Bulletproof Atomic Habit”, the basic methodology may have been seen in my previous books, However, in this online course, there will be many units like the following:
• “Building a Bulletproof Second Brain”: How to turn messy meeting notes into effective task notes? How to effectively organize study notes? Or how to organize your own work and study knowledge base?
• “Dismantling bullet action time”: So what is the specific operation method when actually dealing with various trivial matters that suddenly occur every day? What if you really have to multitask at work?
• “Design Agile Workflow”: How can I organize a large number of files and documents? How to make reports, briefings and other tasks faster in such a process?
• “Start the Bulletproof Atomic Habit”: What to do if you often have negative emotions at work? How can I advance my life tasks when I am tired after get off work? What should I do when I often give up halfway even after learning a system?
I have accumulated more than ten years of digital workflow experience, and various problem cases seen in more than 600 training courses, plus the questions received from the previous pre-class questionnaire, will be integrated in this “Personal Digital Productivity” online course.
If the previous books were to explain the methodological system that I have studied for many years, then the “Personal Digital Productivity” online course is to face the real you, based on the methodological system, but specifically to solve problems in the process of work, life and study. One by one productivity problems, and countless practical cases, let everyone see the most real problem solving and implementation steps .
Question: How is this course different from previous physical and online courses?
I currently have two regular physical courses: ” Adult Learning: Time Management Philosophy of Computer Toy Esor “, ” Bulletproof Notes Method: Easily Create a Productivity System that Decompresses the Brain “, which can take you step by step in the physical course Your real project, your goal. “Time Management Philosophy” will take you through the dismantling of your goals, and “Bulletproof Notes Method (Physical Class)” will take you through the process of building a tool system according to your own projects and tasks. This is more difficult to do with online (pre-recorded) courses.
However, similar to the previous books, the above two physical courses are laying the core foundation of the system, but there will be many specific operational problems in the actual implementation process. Due to the time limit and the need to keep Allocating more time to trainees may not necessarily be able to make specific solutions to every extended problem.
Therefore, this ” Personal Digital Productivity ” online course hopes to complement the physical course. In the physical course, we will practice a core methodology and help you complete it on the spot. But in this online course, you can see more Many specific operations will encounter problem-solving cases, and watch the executable details I disassembled in the video repeatedly as needed .
So how is this online course different from my previous two online courses “Evernote Bullet Time Management” and “High-Efficiency Workplace Note-taking Method”?
• “Evernote Bullet Time Management” is a time management methodology based on the functions of Evernote tools.
• “High-efficiency workplace note-taking method” focuses on how different types of notes in the workplace notes can be written better.

The ” Personal Digital Productivity ” online course focuses on improving productivity. What specific problems need to be solved in our work process, learning methods, and life management? How to solve? What are the specific steps? And use more actual cases from different angles to demonstrate.

It can be said that this is a collection of real cases that can help you follow the operation at most. It is not just about methods, nor will it teach you a lot of functions, but how to use the simplest steps to solve the most difficult specific problems. .
Question: How is this course different from reading the article on computer toys?
My articles in “Computer Playthings” are often very complete sharing. I will also disassemble a problem in depth in the article, and share my best ideas and practices at that time without reservation.

So what is the difference between the online course “Personal Digital Productivity” and the experience of reading articles?

• “Problem case analysis”: I will start with a specific real case, and invite you to think about what we usually do? What problems might be hiding in it? Through interaction, you can compare whether you have any blind spots?
• “Key change steps”: Then I will disassemble each problem-solving process into specific steps that can be operated, and use a real case (or multiple real cases) to demonstrate how to solve such a problem. Help you have specific steps, and there are examples to see how to do it.
• “Quiz and Q&A”: Then I will use another case to invite you to analyze the possible practice again through interaction to see if there is any misunderstanding of the previous steps? Or is there any problem that may be encountered in actual operation? By resolving these doubts, we are more likely to complete the implementation ourselves.
• “Action Suggestions”: At the end of the unit, I will summarize the previous change steps and thinking about the problems into an action suggestion of “how to get started more easily”, and add a description of thinking reversal, the purpose is to make this unit truly Let you use it.
