Creating an App-Centric Network for the Internet of Things

    Hospitals

    Hospitals utilize several smart devices, both standalone and those wired to nurses' station monitors. Soon these will be interconnected through a highly available and secure network with service-based applications that can track patient conditions by correlating all data – not just nurses' readings – allowing better monitoring, data logging and Big Data analytics. Staff will be able to focus on delivering the best care based on deterministic information.

    An IoT connected network helped St. Luke's Medical Center reduce patient-bed turnaround by 51 minutes.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is not just the connected refrigerator. It's thousands of medical devices in hospitals, smart utility meters, GPS-based location systems, fitness trackers, toll readers, motion detector security cameras, smoke detectors, and last but not least, embedded systems. Each of these IoT end nodes requires connectivity, processing and storage, some local and some in the cloud. This means scalability and application elasticity to adapt to dynamic requirements and ever-changing workloads.

To support and accommodate all the devices, sensors and other network-connected gadgets that will eventually become part of the IoT, network designs will need to adapt and become more application centric, according to KEMP Technologies. From health care to automotive and manufacturing to consumer electronics, the Internet of Things is a quantum revolution in how we think about application data activity. Is your network ready for the application onslaught that's coming?
