Business models widely embrace IoT connectivity’s emerging concept (Internet of Things) to achieve flexible and agile connectivity to meet network performances required for devices’ efficient performances.
The technology of broadband networks has bought a radical improvement in connectivity and has constructively contracted the distances between two far-off users. In telecommunications, broadband is wide bandwidth data transmission that transports multiple signals and traffic types. There has been extensive work and development done for the efficient working of the broadband network. The novel innovation of 4G and 5G chips and modules aids in the working of the broadband system. These wireless chips are designed sophistically and encompass a microprocessor that provides the logic for sending and receiving data (including voice and video) on a telecommunications network. As a result, additional devices are not needed for these functions.
The ‘G’ in 4G and 5G stands for generation. These latest models chip are avant-garde and acquire complex yet high-tech systems to ease communication and make the process faster. They are a mode of electronic highway and succors to provide fast, uninterrupted, and streamlined internet supply. After manufacturing, these chips are delivered to IoT companies who use these chips in applications and devices to provide efficient and powerful cellular networks to their customers and users.
These a la mode chips can be used in various devices, including smartphones, tablets, PCs, and other applications requiring fast and efficient internet access.
Ian Fogg from OpenSignal, a mobile data analytics company, articulates,
“Whatever we do now with our smartphones, we’ll be able to do faster and better. Think of smart glasses featuring augmented reality, mobile virtual reality, much higher quality video, the internet of things making cities smarter. But what’s really exciting is all the new services that will be built that we can’t foresee.”
The gains of these ultra-modern network chips are colossal. This wireless innovation reduces Wire Routing Congestion. Arteris network-on-chip interconnects fabric technology significantly reduces the number of wires required to route data in an SoC, reducing routing congestion at the backend of the design process. The distributed architecture of the Arteris network on chip interconnect fabrics allows for precise placement of pipelines (aka “register slices”) to efficiently resolve timing closure issues without affecting other areas of the chip.
Further, network chips acquire higher networking frequencies which simplify the hardware required for switching and routing functions. This thereby allows SoCs with chips to interconnect fabrics to reach higher operating frequencies. Moreover, chip technology makes it easy to swap IP blocks to create derivative chips or to respond quickly to engineering change orders (ECOs) during developments.
It eliminates the need for archaic routers and saves prodigious time, thereby excelling efficiency and productivity. It contributes to higher computer performance. The invention of 4G and 5G chips are transforming and highly developing the telecommunication industry. They are revolutionizing the networking industry and growing it at a fast pace.

This is evident in the module’s ultra-low power consumption and its advanced features that no other competing module in the industry provides.”
The Perfect Investment: RAD Diversified and Income-Producing Farms
Amidst the global lockdown of 2020, Dutch Mendenhall, founder of RADD America, began looking for an alternative to standard residential real-estate investments. So, he turned his analysis to farms and was blown away by the immense potential he saw. After going public in late 2019, RADD America purchased US farmland and made slices of the real estate available at minimum investments of $10,000.
Income-producing farms vs. other real estate asset classes
According to Mendenhall, an apartment complex in today’s US real estate market commands approximately a 4% or 5% cap rate. Farms offer somewhere around a 15% to 20% cap rate.
“When I first began looking at investing in farms, I compared each acre to an apartment or housing unit,” Mendenhall recalls. “The variety that income-producing farms provide is what I really love about them as an opportunity. With one season producing wheat and corn the next, you can double tap — you can raise livestock on top of agriculture. Putting money into the farm only pays off in time. Everything from improving soil to increasing irrigation makes a major impact on potential income, and so much of America’s farmland has fallen into disrepair during the last 20 years.”
When Mendenhall began investing during the early days of the pandemic, sustainable acres of producing farmland sold anywhere from $3,500 to $5,000. Today, he finds that income-producing acres of farmland easily sell for $9,500 to $10,000.
“I’ve seen farmland values almost double during the last couple of years,” Mendenhall says. “Currently, we’re in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Idaho, but we are analyzing land all over America. What reports don’t show is the difference between a properly maintained acre of farmland and an acre that is in disarray. There’s only so much workable farmland on the market today. We’ve hit the tipping point, and now, there’s a scarcity of land for people to buy. If you have the opportunity to purchase amazing agricultural land, you have to pull the trigger quickly.”
Income-producing farms as an asset class
Mendenhall is no stranger to investors. Since 2006, he’s connected them to deals in short sales, wholesaling, residential properties, and storage units, though he admits that every asset class has caused the same excitement as farmland. “At this point, we can’t find enough bargains for our investors,” he says. “They take real pride in their investments and keep asking us for more.”
RADD America takes a true grassroots approach when connecting its investors to farmland. “The farming world is different from any other in real estate,” explains Mendenhall. “We start by having our acquisitions and agricultural teams meet with farmers. When we get ready to brand cattle or plant, all the local farmers come and help. In the same spirit, our teams go out and help the local farmers when it’s their turn to brand and plant. To do it right, you have to build a relationship and a connection that’s quite different than other types of investing.”
RADD America is composed of expert investors and expert farmers. The company offers its investments through fractionalized ownership. In other words, the company purchases one farm and then allows a joint pool of investors to own it together.
“If you don’t have a team that knows how to farm and maximize income, you’re not going to get the best possible return for investors,” warns Mendenhall. “Thankfully, our team isn’t so big for this type of investing that we forget who we are, and we have the economy to scale at a great pace.”
The impact of global competition on income-producing farm investments
RADD America closely monitors global trends. In Mendenhall’s experience, investors win when they move before the market. However, when they move after the market, they lose.
“When Russian first invaded and sparked its war with Ukraine, for example, we kept a close eye on its global impact,” he says. “As one of the largest producers of wheat in the world, we knew that Ukraine — now in the midst of a war — wasn’t going to be able to produce wheat at the same scale, so someone else needs to step in and fill the gap. We’re constantly monitoring what’s happening in the world to stay on top of evolving trends.”
In terms of global competition, Mendenhall is frustrated by foreign entities staking ownership of American farmland and agriculture. In this area, China has positioned itself as the number one threat to the sovereignty of the United States.
“When foreign powers have ownership of agricultural land in the US, it puts us all at risk as Americans,” remarks Mendenhall. “Over the past few years, we’ve seen soil quality erode, closures of meatpacking plants, and numerous fires. The likelihood of nuclear war in this age is very small. The quiet war of buying American agriculture and unsettling the American dollar is the threat we face today.”
Clearly, RADD America has a lot to pay attention to at home and abroad. “We’re monitoring weather patterns and making one-year, three-year, and five-year predictions,” Mendenhall explains. “We’re also paying close attention to interest rates to see where this shifting economy is headed. The up-and-down cycles are faster than they’ve ever been. Monitoring the industry is critical. With expert investors and agricultural specialists from RADD America on your team, farmland can be one of your most promising and rewarding investment opportunities.”
