Barcode Technology Transforming Healthcare
The healthcare sector is one of Australia’s fastest growing and most important industries. An ageing population, coupled with a rise in lifestyle diseases, is placing greater pressure on the nation’s health system. Both public and private healthcare providers are being forced to do more with less.
The Internet of Everything (IoE)
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a concept which has evolved from another concept, the Internet of Things (IoT). Whereas IoT focuses primarily on connecting physical devices to the Internet, IoE takes things a step further by incorporating people and processes as well.
Cisco is the company credited with devising and popularising IoE. Cisco defines IoE as "the intelligent connection of people, process, data and things." IoE combines machine-to-machine (M2M) communication with both machine-to-people (M2P) and technology-assisted people-to-people (P2P) communication. In other words, “everything” joins the network.
Wi-Fi and WLANs Explained
A wireless local area network (WLAN) is a computer network which uses radio signalling to connect devices and users. A WLAN which uses the IEEE 802.11 communication standards is usually called Wi-Fi. Most Wi-Fi networks use the 2.5 GHz UHF and 5 GHz SHF radio bands.
