Can your network keep up?

Technology expectations of businesses and employees are growing and changing every day. But the underlying network which enables us to use this tech properly, can’t always keep up. Instead of being the power behind it, networks can often prove inflexible when it comes to getting the most out of technology in the working environment. By Kevin Drinkall, EMEA Wireless and Cloud Market Development Manager at Zyxel.

Blended Connectivity: The Key to Unlocking IoT at Scale

Arguably one of the biggest challenges facing UK businesses in the coming year is the continued confusion regarding access to Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) that is essential to support the deployment of IoT at scale. At a time when organisations are being actively encouraged by the government to invest in innovation to drive up productivity, the continued prioritisation of broadband as a digital economy enabler is short-sighted. IoT is a technology that is set to deliver far more value than many of the high bandwidth applications can – and the lack of availability is a concern. All is not lost however. LPWAN roll out is a constantly changing situation, with both network standards and network deployments, licensed and unlicensed, still evolving. It is also a buyer’s market: there are a number of propositions ready that will enable organisations to leverage IoT and gain a competitive advantage.  As such, Nick Sacke, Head of IoT and Products, Comms365 explains why it is the independent providers, able to provide access to a blended network model, who will enable not only IoT at scale today, but also provide a long term solution that will drive new levels of efficiency and customer service.
