The health industry is in the throes of widespread transformation, thanks to the increasingly rapid adoption of technologies harnessing the Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things already touches many aspects of healthcare, enabling new efficiencies that are redefining patient care, hospital and clinic operations, prescription delivery, secure record access and more. Some compelling examples of these and other areas of healthcare being impacted by IoT were on display this week at the HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition in Chicago, a massive gathering that brings together tens of thousands of healthcare professionals from around the world. One of the pioneers of IoT in the industry, Cognizant, demonstrated a remote patient monitoring solution that enables anywhere, anytime patient care.

Connected Fleet Management: Why a Unified Network is Key

Article | April 15, 2020

As consumer demands evolve, fleet managers are turning to IoT to deliver products faster and more efficiently. The progress being made in edge computing represents the full potential of IoT: the power of data on the move. However, operating on the edge also reveals some of IoT’s greatest challenges: maintaining network security as the number of endpoints multiplies; rethinking traditional business models as industries become increasingly interdependent; and, perhaps most importantly, establishing a seamless, reliable network across borders, cultures, and regulatory environments.

The Internet Of Things is all over HVACR. Is the value there yet?

Article | March 23, 2020

AHR Expo used to be mostly a “mechanical engineering” event, and even in 2017, when I first got there, there were just a few companies who mentioned IoT or connectivity at their stands. Only the most prominent players in the HVACR industry presented their IoT solutions. In my conversations with companies at that time, no one was taking IoT very seriously. And it’s understandable, there already were Modbus, BacNet – well-defined protocols to connect machines to a PC or PLCs to make them work in unison without any Clouds and external access.

How Big Data and IoT Are Connected

Article | April 1, 2020

Big data as a term and a field, has been around for some time. It relates to the ways in which we study, analyze and process data sets that are too large to be handled by traditional data-processing software. Data can be described as ‘big’ when it demonstrates the four ‘V’ qualities: veracity (accuracy), velocity (speed), volume (size) and variety (both structured and unstructured). IoT, on the other hand, came much later and relates to devices, data and marrying them together. This area looks at making devices ‘smart’ (anything from watches to kettles) and collecting data about their performance or usage to influence consumer behavior.

The role of BSS in the journey to 5G monetization

Article | March 24, 2020

The rollout of commercial 5G services is well underway. This evolution is unlocking exciting new opportunities, but it also presents new challenges. To capture new 5G revenue streams, service providers must transform their existing business support systems (BSS), and develop clear roadmaps to guide this transformation. In the latest MIT Insights report, telecom executives share their vision for 5G-enabled BSS, and how they are preparing for it. Here, we explore some of the highlights. The benefits of 5G are well-documented. Low-latency connectivity and superior broadband speeds will open doors to fully automated factories and put driverless vehicles on our roads. Service providers will be able to provide cutting-edge solutions and superior consumer experiences. However, monetizing a 5G-fuelled IoT society requires a clear strategic roadmap – particularly when it comes to BSS. As 5G matures, BSS will play an increasingly important role in establishing the service provider’s position in the value chain – and having a clear BSS evolution plan is crucial.
