Over the past year, many people have considered starting a new life away from the city, looking for a better lifestyle with more spacious homes, less noise, fresh air and surrounded by nature. The pandemic has shown that telecommuting is possible and that this new model can bring multiple benefits to both businesses and employees.

The bad news is that currently a significant part of rural Spain does not even have access to a 4G network.

The Spanish healthcare system, both the public and private sectors, focuses on healing diseases and hospital care rather than questions such as prevention and primary care. This reality, coupled with its low digital maturity, makes it incapable of handling challenges like the one we currently experience in an effective way.

During these unprecedented times, from the entire BlueTC Team, we would like to THANK YOU for staying in touch with us throughout 2020!

Early in the year, when news surfaced about a virus, - which quickly evolved into a full blown pandemic -, our way of working and interacting needed rethinking. As a forewarning of what was to come, the GSMA’s Mobile World Congress was the first large, international trade show in our industry to be cancelled. From then on virtual events and meetings became the norm globally.

The benefits of integrating telecommunications in production models have been anticipated for quite some time. Now, no one doubts the potential of connected machines and their positive impact in all social and economic spheres.

The industry currently leads the way in the development of new Use Cases within the Industrial Internet of Things, commonly denominated IIoT. The massive influx and consolidation of intelligent objects, i.e. sensors connected between each other and also with the data centres in the cloud, offers a great potential for producing and operating in more efficient ways. In this evolution, the technology that appears to be at the forefront is the so-called digital twin. 

A digital twin is a replica of an IoT product that includes all its components, physical as well as digital, plus all the dynamics and interaction between them. This permits the analysis of an object in real time from a computer and without physically monitoring it.

This technology requires important investments, and thus, its adoption has so far been limited to leading industries, with examples from the machine and tool industry, manufacturers of heating equipment, engines, vehicles, etc. Despite this, according to Gartner, almost 50% of the companies that are implementing IoT already employs or are planning to create a digital twin. Also, the next generation networks, 5G, with its promises of super-fast connectivity and low latency, can only contribute to the development of new products or business models based on this innovative technology.
