Australian telco Telstra has added narrowband capabilities to its internet of things (IoT) network following the launch of its Cat M1 IoT offering late last year. With narrowband IoT, or NB-IoT, Telstra claims to be the only carrier in Australia, and one of the first in the world, to offer both narrowband and Cat M1 IoT technologies, enabling enterprises in industries such as logistics, mining, manufacturing and agriculture to choose the technology that best suits their needs.
The telecoms industry has reached a major tipping point, with the way it currently operates limiting its ability to keep up with the growing demands of customers in the digital economy. Anil Rao, principal analyst at Analysys Mason, noted in a study commissioned by Huawei that although telcos have embarked on digital transformation initiatives, with software-defined networks, the internet of things (IoT) and 5G still to come, they remain constrained by their prevalent operating model.
Despite the promises of big data, many countries including Singapore do not have enough data scientists with the business acumen and technical skills to make sense of heaps of data. In anticipating the growing demand for professionals with training in data sciences and analytics, Singapore’s Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) started a massive open online course (MOOC), which attracted over 350 participants from the private and public sectors.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
