The “consumerization” of healthcare and sweeping policy changes will require that healthcare providers become more competitive or risk being left behind.
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.
Cradlepoint solutions leverage 4G LTE to offer reliable, flexible, secure connectivity that is dependable and easy to deploy while enabling healthcare organizations to maintain the highest levels of network security and retain the flexibility they need to deploy M2M and IoHT.
Discussion will include how:
•Check-in kiosks streamline administrative tasks and help patients access and update important information.
•Telehealth and “clinic-in-a-store” kiosks let patients conduct health screenings, update their personal health records, and conduct virtual appointments with health professionals via video streaming.
•Wireless Real-Time Location Systems (WRTLS) allow IT administrators to track and locate medical devices across massive campuses, reducing overhead and wasted time.
•Medical devices that need maintenance or supply refills can be monitored remotely, such as when a problem arises or supplies become depleted, the device can send an alert.

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.
