Today, businesses and organizations of all sizes — and from all industries — are challenged to extend their networks to more people, places, and things than ever. It’s also clear that legacy WANs — predominately based on wired, hardware-defined, and resource-intensive infrastructures — can’t keep pace with the rapidly changing needs of today’s lean and agile connected enterprise.
Join Cradlepoint’s Ian Pennell on June 22 for a live webinar about trends in enterprise WAN architectures. Learn what Cradlepoint’s recent State of the Network 2017 report revealed about LTE adoption, software-defined WAN, and more.
Today’s IoT topology is a hodge-podge of standards, communication mechanisms, software, and hardware.
Look at a typical home IoT environment that requires a unique hub for every IoT device. This results in complexity and interoperability challenges for widespread adoption and support. Sensors will continue to reduce in size, power, and cost but will remain constrained as to how many features one can bind into a small compute device. Communication standards at the Edge range from WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Zwave, Thread, ANT, and the list is growing. What is needed are smarter Edge devices that provide the services of communication routing, security, aggregation, and resiliency.
Join this webcast with Perry Lea, Principal Architect and IoT Strategist, for insight into the “wild west” of IoT interoperability, recommendations and predictions on how smart gateways will evolve in the near future.

An ACG Analysis, Research Brief and Webinar Developed in Partnership with RCR Wireless. Concurrent innovations in 5G radio access and in network control and application delivery using virtualization and the cloud at multiple layers of the ‘stack’ will bring services to market not feasible in the past. This fortunate combination makes the arrival of 5G especially inspiring. Evaluating several of the more impactful new radio access innovations, the way they benefit from virtualization and the cloud in managing the network and and delivering new applications, and examining the benefits these enhancements bring to stakeholders in the 5G and IIoT ecosystems is the focus of this research.
One area of innovations in 5G and IIoT is to support a massive scale of connectivity for ‘things’ for commercial and industrial use. In many cases use of low power access technologies such as LoRa is integral to supporting new applications at scale. In other cases innovative data distribution mechanisms such as Coordinated Multi-Point communications (or CoMP) to support the use of diverse types of end-stations are crucial to bringing the versatility, efficiency and scale to IIoT that some applications need. In parallel support for highly reliable and ultra-low latency communication for applications in transportation, health care, public safety and other vertical sectors will harness new frequency bands and transmission management techniques to accomplish their functions.
This research brief and webinar from ACG Research will examine the symbiosis between 5G radio access innovations and the technologies of virtualization and the cloud for delivering IIoT at scale in ways that have not been possible in the past.
