Anelto | April 26, 2022
Anelto, a leader in Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) solutions, announces the addition of the RemoteCareLive! video remote patient monitoring system to its product portfolio. RemoteCareLive! is an extension of Anelto's successful RemoteCare voice and data console, which has over 15,000 systems in service across the United States. This new solution runs on AT&T’s nationwide IoT network, known for its reliability and coverage.
The RemoteCareLive! system is designed specifically for healthcare with Medicare users in mind. It is a simply elegant, easy-to-use cellular-based video console providing excellent in-home availability and a highly reliable telehealth conferencing connection. RemoteCareLive! is always on since it is plugged in and has a two-day battery backup. Unlike tablets, a notification is immediately sent to the care provider if the power source is removed.
The RemoteCareLive! video consoles contain IoT SIM cards, so they automatically send the patient’s data over the AT&T IoT network to the cloud where a healthcare provider can access the data via a secure log-in.
"Our collaboration with Anelto is another example of how our IoT connectivity is advancing connected healthcare," said Joe Drygas, VP of Healthcare Solutions for AT&T. "More and more healthcare providers are turning to remote patient monitoring for improved patient outcomes. IoT-enabled RPM devices provide a quicker and more convenient service for patients and give them more control over their health. For doctors, RPM solutions with IoT connectivity mean access to more complete patient data and the ability to act on that data as it’s received."
RemoteCareLive! continuously monitors in real-time with loud, clear audio that is easy to understand. Unlike tablets, the RemoteCareLive! system is designed to remain on a tabletop. It has a sturdy, integrated adjustable base with simple, intuitive buttons for essential functions permanently positioned along the outside of the frame. The RemoteCareLive! audio volume and clarity are superior to a tablet experience.
RemoteCareLive! uses improved Anelto device management, clinical tools, and proprietary Care-driven, Android-based, Reliable, In-Home Software, also known as CARIS, a Greek word meaning love and kindness. It seamlessly connects to Anelto-approved blood pressure, pulse oximeter, glucometer, scale, spirometer, and other vital sign monitors. The CARIS software and conversational AI allow users to answer care pathway questions with just their voice.
We have been successfully delivering RPM clinical services using Anelto equipment for several years. Their equipment is robust, reliable, and easy for patients to use. For most patients, their RemoteCare audio platform is a superior choice. Their new RemoteCareLive! video platform offers many advantages over traditional consumer-grade tablets. We look forward to continuing to serve patients and providers with these types of innovative solutions."
Rick Griffin, CEO, Navcare

IOTech Systems | June 24, 2022
IOTech, the edge software company, has announced the general availability of Edge XRT v2.0. This is a major release of its open software platform designed for time-critical and embedded OT applications at the industrial IoT edge.
Edge XRT 2.0 greatly simplifies the development of OT applications and enables faster time-to-market for new edge systems. It is hardware agnostic, independent of the silicon provider (Intel or ARM) and operating system. Users have complete deployment flexibility. They can deploy it as a native application, containerized and/or into a virtualized environment.
With its small memory footprint and efficient use of computing resources, Edge XRT 2.0 is also suitable for microcontroller-based applications where CPU and memory resources are limited. This makes it ideal for use cases such as connected commercial or consumer electronic devices (e.g., refrigeration unit), medical device applications or automotive engine management systems.
The product's open APIs make third-party application integration very easy. Major industrial OEMs and ISVs are leveraging the product's multi-vendor OT connectivity, cloud interoperability and high-performance, real-time edge processing capabilities to create a new generation of protocol-agnostic edge solutions.
"As a configurable, embeddable, high-performance OT platform, Edge XRT 2.0 is unique, It provides a rich set of OT and IoT capabilities that our customers can easily use to create their own edge solutions. In most cases, this is through simple configuration without the need for lots of custom code."
Andrew Foster, Product Director at IOTech
The new release adds a number of important features including:
OT connectivity: In addition the existing pluggable OT connectivity for Modbus, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT, BACnet and OPC UA protocols, the platform now supports PROFINET, S7, GPS and BLE.
For protocols that support device discovery such as OPC UA, BACnet and EtherNet/IP, devices can be discovered and then onboarded easily without any manual configuration.
A new MQTT API allows Edge XRT clients to easily manage the lifecycle of connected device/sensors, support read/write OT data access, control device discovery and resource scheduling.
When deployed on an Azure Sphere device, an Edge XRT application can now be dynamically configured and reconfigured via a Device Twin running on Azure IoT Hub.
IOTech has made scalability and performance improvements to address customer demand for concurrent access to an increasing number of OT devices and their data.
Edge XRT is designed for high-performance edge computing use cases, such as industrial control and real-time signal processing applications across a variety of vertical markets. These include factory automation, renewable energy, building management, retail and hospitality. It also enables integration between the real-time edge applications and higher-level enterprise IT, SCADA and cloud applications.
IOTech builds and deploys vendor neutral software platforms and tools to support the rapid development, deployment and management of applications at the IoT Edge helping drive IoT innovation, global market adoption, velocity and scale. The company's products address the full spectrum of secure hard and soft real-time edge computing needs, dramatically reducing time to market, development and system integration costs for its partners who are the supply chains to multiple vertical IoT market domains. IOTech leverages an open-source ecosystem to collaboratively improve time to market, develop global channel partnerships and achieve pervasive adoption of its software products.
