Current IT monitoring systems are not designed to operate in challenging and dangerous environments, such as the ones found in underground mines. They won’t tolerate dust, high/low temperatures, humidity, or explosions. If a device were to withstand such conditions, providing reliable and fast communications to various dispersed in-field sensors, video cameras is still a pretty challenging endeavor.

Electrical power consumption continues to grow at a rapid pace globally, and therefore it is essential to efficiently manage power distribution to ensure reliability and reach. The development of remote substation control and automation has become fundamental to the operation of the electricity network.  

The landscape of web threats has grown significantly, and as enterprises migrate to the cloud and expand their remote sites/branch locations, providing open always-connected access to the internet leaves the company vulnerable to several threats, such as malware, fraud, and other complications. Many organizations are realizing that the risk is especially high for web-based threats, and a more advanced and integrated approach is needed to secure against external and internal risks.

To stay in pace with the ever-increasing user expectation for instant access to information, service providers and businesses need the agility to scale on demand and launch new products and services as quickly as they are requested. Open architecture like Open RAN can provide more flexibility and cost-effective deployment options for operators and enterprises.

As public safety technologies continue to improve and evolve, mobile command and control center (MCCC) solutions are becoming more prevalent for public safety agencies of all sizes, and recognized by law-enforcement and military applications and even among organizations that require high quality, mobile video surveillance. Mobile command centers can be vital equipment during emergencies, man-made or natural disasters, enabling quick response and uninterrupted communications to monitor and respond to a crisis.

The growing demand for AI machine vision can be found in fast supply-chain processes, and one such application is the unloading of boxes from pallets, or depalletization.

A system integrator specializing in delivering smart solutions for supply chain management came to Lanner in search of a hardware solution that could be relied upon for automating most of the arduous tasks involved in depalleting, so that an end customer in the logistics industry can increase their productivity, throughput and also save costs.

In today’s digital world, designing and implementing a public safety system requires considering an entire ecosystem, from applications, services, and property and network infrastructure. Deploying a high-quality software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is essential to operate a public safety ecosystem, which can enhance the speed, efficacy, coverage, and reliability of first responders by enabling citizens and public safety answering points to send and receive voice, text, photos and video communications over a wireless network.
