It's about time that standard plug and play interfaces are available for medical devices. Standardization of these interfaces and the availability of full-stack solutions will make it simpler and less costly to add the interfaces and ultimately drive down costs for the devices while improving their interoperability. A win-win for everyone.
Providing The plug-and-play communications is a definite advantage . Apart from reducing the design overhead for each application engineer to implement the protocol stack , it also removes the probability of bugs getting introduced in the communication software.
