The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of sensor-embedded devices and machines
that exchange data with each other and the cloud through a secure network.
Often referred to as “things” or “edge devices”, these intelligent machines
connect to the internet either directly or through an IoT gateway,
enabling them to send data to the cloud. Analyzing this data can reveal
valuable insights about these objects and the business processes
they’re part of, helping enterprises optimize their operations.
Devices in IoT deployments can span nearly any industry or use case.
Each one is equipped with sensors, processing power, connectivity,
and software, enabling asset control and other remote interactions
over the internet. Unlike traditional IT assets, these edge devices are
resource-constrained (either by bandwidth, storage, or processing
power) and are typically found outside of a data center, creating unique
security and management considerations.

The “consumerization” of healthcare and sweeping policy changes will require that healthcare providers become more competitive or risk being left behind. Gaining the competitive edge means finding scalable efficiencies, leveraging the wealth of available patient data for improved care, and figuring out how to meet (or sometimes treat) patients where they already are—whether that happens to be at work, at the mall, or on the street.
While Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Healthcare Things (IoHT) technologies promise to create massive efficiencies and a transformed patient experience, traditional wired connectivity solutions are often costly, difficult to deploy, and don’t offer the flexibility required for effective M2M and IoHT deployments.
This white paper explores considerations for choosing network solutions that ensure secure, reliable, and cost-effective connectivity for enabling mobile healthcare — anywhere. it also discusses the advantages of 4G LTE over traditional wired lines.
Few travelers today will arrive at a hospitality venue without a mobile device. In fact, some 86% of us will carry two or more. Our expectations are changing. Wi-Fi is now the essential amenity we look for at a hotel. It’s a deal-breaker: no Wi-Fi, no return stay. In fact, both leisure and business travelers say that it’s more important to have Wi-Fi at a hotel, along with air-conditioning, than breakfast.
Many healthcare organizations are looking at mobility as a means to improve treatment paths and patient outcomes. To achieve these goals, you need a Wi-Fi solution with the strength and intelligence to support the demands of digitization and the Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things (IoT) – devices and sensors connected to computing systems and networks – has received enormous attention in the last few years.
