First responders are out on the front line ready to face emergencies at all times. They are a vital component of communities, working to identify threats, carry out evacuations, and treat the injured to save lives. Emergency medical services treat 25 to 30 million patients per year.
In this article we will look at a practical application of 4G Wide Area Networks (WAN), examining how industrial service provider Bilfinger uses 4G WAN solutions to bring its short-term maintenance projects online quickly and without the need for expensive cable installation.
School buses help to reduce traffic, by keeping over 17 million cars off the road and prevent over 20 million tons of CO2 from being released each year. School districts are now making school buses even more valuable, by installing Wi-Fi on buses. This should help extend the reach of the classroom.
As the world edges closer to the reality of the fifth generation (5G) of wireless communications, a new age of product innovations is at the doorstep as wireless providers contend with the last remaining hurdles to a national rollout.
Cities are becoming smarter by producing greater public-sector efficiencies through sensors, IoT, LTE connectivity, and data analysis. The change of culture and technology is causing towns, cities, counties, and even entire states, to adapt to technologies that help lower costs.
Airgain Inc. has released its Ultramax MIMO 9-in-1 antenna, which can receive multiple GNSS signals. The antenna is the first in an Airgain series designed to support state-of-the-art communications technology in fleet routers, including the Cradlepoint IBR1700.
Municipalities of all size around the world are embracing digital transformation and have launched Smart City initiatives to make service delivery more efficient, improve quality of life, develop new sources of revenue, and protect the environment.
Cradlepoint continues to enhance its LTE wireless-router portfolio while providing a cloud-based NetCloud network-management solution that can make it much easier for public-safety agencies to maintain and monitor their broadband connections, according to company officials.
The collection and analysis of data from sensor-equipped devices in order to achieve a business or organisational goal -- a.k.a. the Internet of Things -- is a key component in the wave of digital transformation underpinning the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
As long as I have been an industry analyst, network engineers have tried to build multifunction boxes that are capable of addressing a wide range of network functions. These all-purpose network boxes have been lost to history as single-function platforms optimized for network performance (e.g., router or WAN optimization) dominated the market.
