In the realm of critical infrastructure management, ensuring the safety, reliability, and efficiency of systems such as power plants, oil refineries, and communication networks is paramount. Traditional inspection methods have their limitations, often requiring manual labor, high costs, and potential safety hazards. A private network with 5G-enabled wearable applications is employed to revolutionize the inspection process.
Communications play a crucial role in the event of an emergency, such as natural disasters including hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, or pandemics. First responders, mobile command posts, and remote emergency shelters must have reliable and secure communications for operational effectiveness. Building a mission-critical communication system can ensure rapid and safe health services within the hospitals, and in remote areas can help in minimizing the fallout due to the disaster.
Mining companies face several challenges, including ensuring safety for workers, increasing efficiency, sustainability, and reducing costs. Wireless connectivity has the potential to increase safety and efficiency in mining operations by collecting and analyzing tracking data on the performance of vehicles, equipment, and workforce, in addition to remote monitoring of equipment, which can detect issues before they cause major problems.
As cities are becoming both digital and smart, communication has become the fifth core infrastructure network after water, electricity, gas, and transportation. To keep up with the demand for bandwidth generated by consumers and applications, service providers and network operators need to optimize the performance and scaling of their existing networking architectures while generating innovative and cost-effective ways to deliver the services.
The ISD-O370 (from Lanner) is an edge-rugged cellular router. It is compliant with IP67 and the MIL-STD standards (to ensure the device operates in harsh environments) and also supports 5G and Wi-Fi 6 for demanding wireless applications. The appliance can also provide edge computing capabilities. It runs on Linux on Intel’s Atom C3000 with up to 64GB DDR4 (64GM eMMC).
Mobile Health Units (MHUs) are integral elements of any advanced health care system. They make health care accessible to everyone regardless of their location or resources. The MHU is especially useful in geographically remote “underserved” communities or vulnerable populations.
Segment Routing IPv6 (SRv6) is a next-generation IP transport protocol, that utilizes existing IPv6 standard specifications to implement a network programming framework through flexible IPv6 extension headers. Leveraging SRv6 simplifies network protocol types to feature better extensibility and programmability, providing high reliability and offering new cloud service application potential. SRv6 is most suitable for cross-domain interconnection, large-scale networking, service cloudification, and cloud-network synergy.
