Previously, OT (Operational Technology) and IT (Information Technology) though related were separate environments where OT industrial automation and control systems and IT enterprise digital networks were not connected. With the advent of IoT, it has become an agent for the integration of OT and IT.

As an increasing number of businesses undergo digital migration, all aspects of the digital user experience are becoming increasingly important. Both the external customer experience, delivered via web applications, and the internal employee experience, delivered via SaaS or internal enterprise applications, are being transformed by the digitalization process. This has increased the need to monitor the user experience to optimize and improve it. That has required the development of improved monitoring technologies, including those that track both network performance and the user experience via Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM).

As digital transformation progresses in the business world, networks are steadily gaining in importance. The building blocks of business digitalization are the infrastructure technologies that comprise it, including uCPE, vRAN, Cloud Edge, Aggregation Routers, IoT, and A.I., all of which share one thing in common – network centricity.

Software-Defined WAN technology is currently driving Wide Area Networks' expansion, providing substantial benefits to organizations requiring increased bandwidth for their extended networks. Using low-cost internet bandwidth provides secure and flexibly configured network access to ensure network resource demand is reliably satisfied.

Lanner was approached by a customer searching for the ideal hardware appliance capable of supporting the deployment of a K-12 education system, one that serves millions of students and teaching staff residing both inside and outside the country. This inquiry came at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic and all distance learning programs and collaborations must be commenced without too much delay in order to ensure continuity.

For most large-scale enterprises, a Wireless LAN (WLAN) is still a necessary part of the corporate network infrastructure for several reasons. In addition to affording employees the convenience and flexibility of a wireless network connection, it also allows extending the network to temporary users such as guests and contractors. This service may transform from a convenience to a necessity as the organization expands or implements a ‘wireless-first’ network solution.

Modern fisheries have embarked on a new era of data and analytics-based technology to provide monitoring capability in a complex operational environment.

To ensure reliable monitoring and recording, the industry is turning to a reliance on Artificial Intelligence-based vision and Big Data analytics enabled by IoT technologies. By using electronic monitoring, video surveillance, sensors, and control systems, today’s fishing industry can achieve cost and risk reduction using intelligent systems.
