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.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
