D-Link has announced mobile solutions to bring connectivity to consumers, businesses, and carriers at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
“Our range of mobile products cover most scenarios,” said Anny Wei, CEO & President of D-Link Corporation.
D-Link’s new solutions for mobile connectivity include:
Edge as a Service
D-Link’s new Edge as a Service provides enterprises with their own private LTE network. Sensitive data from Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices are processed locally rather than through the MNO network, allowing for a network that is more secure and has shorter latency. Our low-power base stations bring unlimited scalability and can handle more intense networking demands.
D-Link’s VPN routers provide connectivity that moves with you on public transportation. By working with in-vehicle network cameras and GPS trackers to monitor and report driver and passenger behavior, D-Link VPN Routers enable smarter, safer journeys.
As more cities struggle with traffic congestion and parking issues, D-Link delivers customized solutions to improve cities’ parking conditions. D-Link’s new LTE VPN Router works with NVRs and other analytics tools to provide central management, data acquisition, and data dissemination.
D-Link’s Smart Retail solutions consist of smart cameras with numerous beneficial features for retailers who want to sell better and profit faster. Facial recognition not only allows businesses to recognize their best customers and provide better service, but it also auto detects threats. Discover what store display area and products are most popular with hot spot analysis. Automatically keep track of visitors and guests and make sense of numbers with the business analytics software.
BLE IoT Solution
Designed to work with a 3rd party cloud, D-Link’s BLE IoT solution consists of a new connected home gateway, water sensor, and smart plug. With the support of a 3rd party security chipset, the devices have a secure connection to the 3rd party cloud. The hub allows users to conveniently manage Bluetooth-enabled smart home devices. 24/7 reliability is provided with 4G/LTE connectivity and a backup battery. A built-in siren provides on-site alerts based on preset conditions, and the smart devices can also be scheduled to turn on and off when certain events are triggered.
Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC)
With an increasing demand for faster bandwidths, D-Link’s robust hybrid IAD combines 4G LTE with fixed line broadband to deliver a faster, more reliable Internet. The solution offers a failsafe Internet connection even when broadband or LTE connections fail.
Connectivity & Surveillance
Everyday life is safer and more convenient with D-Link’s customized smart city solutions. D-Link’s surveillance cameras offer smooth video streaming, and D-Link’s LTE hotspots and bridges allow communities to easily access information and entertainment.
Password managers don’t protect you from hackers
Using a password manager to protect yourself online? Research reveals serious weaknesses…
Top password manager products have fundamental flaws that expose the data they are designed to protect, rendering them no more secure than saving passwords in a text file, according to a new study by researchers at Independent Security Evaluators (ISE).
“100 percent of the products that ISE analyzed failed to provide the security to safeguard a user’s passwords as advertised,” says ISE CEO Stephen Bono. “Although password managers provide some utility for storing login/passwords and limit password reuse, these applications are a vulnerable target for the mass collection of this data through malicious hacking campaigns.”
In the new report titled “Under the Hood of Secrets Management,” ISE researchers revealed serious weaknesses with top password managers: 1Password, Dashlane, KeePass and LastPass. ISE examined the underlying functionality of these products on Windows 10 to understand how users’ secrets are stored even when the password manager is locked. More than 60 million individuals 93,000 businesses worldwide rely on password managers. Click here for a copy of the report.
Password managers are marketed as a solution to eliminate the security risks of storing passwords or secrets for applications and browsers in plain text documents. Having previously examined these and other password managers, ISE researchers expected an improved level of security standards preventing malicious credential extraction. Instead ISE found just the opposite.

MWC: Next generation of inflight connectivity to be unveiled
Next week at Mobile World Congress, the Seamless Air Alliance will reveal progress on its mission towards enabling the next generation of inflight connectivity. This follows a significant start for the Alliance, which has seen membership increase five-fold since the first meeting in June of last year. The Alliance has a new research laboratory setup and continues progress through its three working groups, writing specifications for the technology, requirements, and operations.
These developments represent a huge leap towards the goal of making connectivity as easy and enjoyable in the skies as it is on the ground. Appearing as part of the Airbus stand (Hall 6, stand 6G34), the Seamless Air Alliance will reveal specification topics that have been completed and published to its membership.
“The passenger experience with inflight connectivity remains one of the great technology challenges. From Day One we have been determined to deliver on our mission to bring industries and technologies together to make the inflight internet experience simple to access and a delight to use,” said the Alliance’s Chief Executive Officer, Jack Mandala.
“I have been tremendously encouraged by the enthusiastic and committed response we have seen and the widening areas of expertise we can call upon as more and more companies and organisations continue to join us,” he added.
Announced during MWC 2018, the Seamless Air Alliance has since grown to twenty-three membercompanies with more than one-hundred key personnel from across the membership participating in its three working groups, with numbers continuing to increase.
The Seamless Air Alliance was created by founding members Airbus, Airtel, Delta Air Lines, OneWeb and Sprint, and quickly joined by Air France KLM, Aeromexico, and GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes and global technology leaders including Astronics, Collins Aerospace, Comtech, Cyient, iDirect, Inmarsat, Intelsat, Latecoere, Nokia, and Panasonic.
Today, the Alliance is pleased to announce five additional new members: Adaptive Channel, Etihad Airways, GlobalReach Technology, Safran, and SITAONAIR.
“We are extremely pleased to have these companies join and be a part of the companies driving the next generation of connectivity.” said Mr Mandala.
The Seamless Air Alliance will enable travelers boarding any flight, on any airline, anywhere in the world, to use their own devices to automatically connect to the Internet with no complicated login process nor paywall to scramble over.
The Alliance is also announcing the release of a new research study on the economic benefit of standardization on the inflight connectivity market at Mobile World Congress. This report is available for download at https://www.seamlessalliance.com/publications/
The Alliance is moving rapidly towards an expected demonstration of the technology later in 2019 and anticipates massive interest in Barcelona from the whole communications eco-system.
