On the roads of the Nuremberg Web Week #NUEWW

For the fifth time, the Nuremberg Web Week offered digital natives the opportunity to network. The main focuses of the Web Week from the 15th to 22nd of May were events and lectures on digital topics such as online marketing, eCommerce, web development and virtual reality.

Sounds exciting, right? Indeed, it is. We also found some time and visited two events: eCommerce-Day and "VR in Nuremberg". On Tuesday the eCommerce-Day offered interesting lectures about the latest state of eCommerce. In addition to trends and forecasts regarding commerce in the digital age, we also learned a lot about payment methods, growth opportunities for online shops and what we can expect from Google in the near future regarding SEO and SEA. Also the important topics eCommerce law and data protection weren’t missed out. As you can imagine, we took a lot of useful input with us, which we can use for our daily business.

Virtual reality in Nuremberg

On Thursday we visited "VR in Nuremberg" (#vrnue) at the Südwestpark Forum. Local companies and start-ups presented their impressive virtual reality applications. The enthusiasm of the exhibitors for their projects was infectious and so we held interesting discussions about the possibilities offered by augmented and virtual reality for the industry 4.0. In addition to the VR exhibition, the sessions of the barcamp were also an ideal opportunity to network and exchange visions.

Many thanks to the organizers and to all those who made this event so unique. This just leaves us one question: Where can we register for the next Web Week?

Virtual Reality: Also for industry 4.0

For applications in the industrial environment, applications from the areas of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are increasingly being developed. In industry 4.0 numerous applications are possible: In addition to the training of employees, customers and business partners (e.g. flight simulators, operating rooms, but also hard-to-reach places such as power plants), VR is also interesting for design, development and presentation. In virtual reality, products, assemblies, systems and processes can be simulated and are interactively accessible. Currently, however, there is still a lack of decent hardware, since VR applications place high demands on the processor and graphics performance of a Mini-PC.

Integrated battery: More reliability

The vehicle PCs of the MOVE series from spo-comm can all be ordered with an optional battery pack. If, for instance, the power fails or the ignition in the car unexpectedly breaks down, the PC runs operated by battery and shuts down automatically, if it doesn’t get power again. Among other things, this is interesting in the measurement technology, as data can still be saved. In addition, a hard shutdown isn’t good for PCs, since the operating system can be damaged sooner or later.

Not just for border crossers: Two mobile networks

Our new models of the MOVE series each have two SIM card slots and therefore it is possible to rely on two mobile networks (3G or 4G). The advantages are obvious: On the one hand two simultaneous connections can be established, which increases the speed of data transfer. On the other hand, by using two different networks, a larger coverage can be achieved, in order not to suddenly get into a dead zone during transport. This is also interesting for vehicles traveling in the border area. Here it is possible to use the appropriate network for each country.

DIN EN ISO 9000 ff. is an internationally applied and approved quality management standard, which ensures that certain standards are maintained within a company.

Our operational processes are regularly reviewed, optimized and kept transparent for all. Risks can be easily identified, reduced and even estimated. Therefore suppliers have to prove themselves and the production of goods in monitored in order to ensure a continuous quality assurance of our products and services.

With the DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 certification, the latest revision of the ISO standard, we guarantee that we work according to the latest quality standards and regularly control ourselves through internal audits.

spo-comm goes ISO 9001:2015!
spo-comm is now certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. But what does that actually mean?
12 Apr 2017 Array ( [id] => 260 [title] => What’s new? Bluetooth 5, TPM and high demand for SSDs [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => A lot has happened in the last few weeks. This month we have some news about the new Bluetooth standard, the Trusted Platform Module and we explain the rising prices for SSDs. In addition: Product change in the spo-comm range and everything about Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. [description] =>

Even faster, even better: Bluetooth 5

A few weeks ago, developers of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) presented Bluetooth 5. The fifth version of the radio standard promises a faster data transmission, further distanced and thereby also saves energy in some cases. These changes mainly affect Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for small, current-saving systems. With these, the data rate can even double. Manufacturers of radio chips have already announced that the new standard will be available soon.

More security for Mini-PCs: Trusted Platform Module (TPM)

The Trusted Platform Module is a chip that is integrated into many systems and provides more security. The TPM can be used to encrypt a hard drive, identify a computer and detect changes, such as malware. More information about TPM and the spo-comm Systems possessing the chip, will soon be available on our blog.

Rising SSD prices due to high demand: Improvement is finally in sight

Due to the increased demand for NAND memories (=a type flash memory used for SSDs), the prices for SSDs have risen a lot in the recent months. This is because on the one hand SSDs are increasingly popular because of their multiple advantages. This also results in an increased demand for the more favorable so called TLC memory. On the other hand, NAND modules are also required for smartphones. While a price increase of up to 16% was expected for the first quarter, the situation should slowly ease in the second quarter.

It’s time for a change: WINDBOX II Plus goes EOL

Unfortunately everything has its end: Our very popular spo-book WINDBOX II Plus is End of Life (EOL) and is now completely replaced by the spo-book WINDBOX II Quad. Thanks to the same dimensions and also the same connections – only one USB was upgraded from 2.0 to the current 3.0 standard – the product change should not cause any problems. The WINDBOX II Quad also features a newer quad-core processor and Windows 10. Drivers for the old system are from now on available here.

Windows 10 IoT Enterprise: Find all information on our blog now!

It is hard to believe that our Windows 10 IoT weeks are already over. Over the past five weeks we’ve introduced you to a new topic every Tuesday: from general introductions, to the benefits of the OS, customizing and security features, to Microsoft’s new licensing policy. And if you do not have enough time to read, just take a look at our overview page. We have summarized the most important information short and sweet, just for you.
