The impact of COVID-19 is the latest reminder that healthcare must be as flexible as available tools will allow. From pop-up networks, mobile screenings, and mobile health vehicles to telemedicine and IoT, technology is pushing the boundaries of how and where healthcare is offered. Whether inside a clinic or far beyond, healthcare requires flexible, reliable, and secure connectivity. In many situations, LTE and 5G are the best solution.

With the Internet of Things (IoT) generating more data than ever before, organisations must seriously consider what edge computing has to offer. According to a study from the International Data Corporation (IDC), 45 percent of all data created by IoT devices will be stored, processed, analysed and acted upon close to or at the edge of a network by 2020.
In a world that is increasingly data-driven, a large amount of data is being generated outside of the traditional data centre. Edge computing places the physical computing infrastructure at the edges of the network where the data is being generated, and in many cases, this is where the data is needed most.
Internet-enabled devices have led to an explosion in the growth of data. On its own, this data has some value, however, the only way to unlock its full potential is by combining it with other data that businesses already hold.
Together, pre-existing data and newly-minted IoT data can provide a full picture of specific insights around a single consumer.
