  • Seizing The IoT Opportunity Requires Mastering Network Essentials
    Published May 2018
    The Internet of Things presents an historic opportunity for mobile network operators, but the path to capitalizing on the IoT has its own unique challenges due the unprecedented requirements from the IoT's structure and scale. Enabling tens of billions of tiny devices to stream data to the cloud and allowing enterprises to manage untold gigabytes of data introduces unique processes, service improvements, connections and business relationships between network operators and their customers and partners. Kerlink explains how the IoT can cause businesses, farms, cities and government agencies to experience tremendous operational improvements and a renaissance of innovation.
  • Using RAIN RFID Technology to Fulfill the FDA's UDI Regulation and Improve the Health-Care Supply Chain
    Published May 2018
