Organizations across every industry are inventing new services, streamlining operations, and enhancing user experiences thanks to the IoT. From universities to hotels to offices to homes, the IoT is transforming the fabric of business and personal life.
As the number of connected devices reaches 30 billion by 2020, how will you harness the power of the IoT for your customers and users?
New uses for the IoT are being discovered by every enterprise in every industry.
Hoteliers are using IoT technologies to enable a personalized guest experience that differentiates their hotel property and brand. Hotels are enabling smartphones to act as digital keycards to easily unlock guest rooms and to simplify the check-in process—and installing amenities like smart lighting and smart window shades to deliver a more personalized, state-of-the-art guest experience.

Cities are using IoT applications to run city services more efficiently and to deliver new services to residents, businesses and visitors. Connected public parking makes it easier to find an open space, reducing traffic congestion and driver frustration. Connected security cameras and sensors improve public safety by detecting gunfire and providing precise coordinates to emergency responders. Cities are also deploying IoT sensors to monitor air quality, water and waste management, lowering costs and improving public health. Learn more: Smart cities
Multi-dwelling unit (MDU) owners and operators are using IoT applications to create “smart home” experiences that attract new residents and help their properties stand out from the crowd. Amenities like smart lighting, environmental controls, and connected security make MDUs more attractive to the people who live there, increasing property values and rents while reducing energy consumption and operating costs.

IoT-enabled smart campuses make colleges and universities safer and more efficient, and give students new ways to engage in campus life. Wayfinding applications to get around campus, connected transit and bike shares, and even smart parking applications are all part of the new campus experience. Connected CCTV, smart lighting and smart locks—all connecting over ubiquitous outdoor wireless—make everyone on campus safer. And connected HVAC sensors reduce energy consumption and lower costs.

Connected classrooms give students a more engaging, personalized 1:1 learning experience, with new “edtech” (education technology) tools being added every day. AR/VR, maker spaces with 3D printing, STEM projects, and more are all part of today’s digital classroom. IoT solutions can also enhance student safety with CCTV, automate attendance taking, and make it easy to add school data to digital curriculum—all while saving school budget through smart energy use.

As hospitals and clinics struggle to provide better, more personalized healthcare, a converged access network becomes the foundation for supporting all of the devices and services that deliver a safer, healthier, and more responsive patient experience. Additionally, physicians, nurses, and administrators that monitor patient wellness are beginning to demand networks that support patient location tracking, patient alerts and more.

An IoT access network connects both Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi IoT endpoints over a converged, multi-standard, physical network. Such a network eliminates the need to deploy independent, stand-alone networks to support different IoT technologies such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Zigbee, LoRa, and more.

Smart devices, often referred to as the internet of things (IoT), offer the hospitality industry the opportunity to provide guests with a much richer experience. When the Royal Park Hotel opened its doors in 2004 in Rochester, Michigan, it had the look of a historic landmark. The luxury hotel is designed in the tradition of an elegant English manor house. Its old-world elegance makes you feel like you’re stepping back into the past. But the hotel’s use of technology is all about modern conveniences.
Innovative companies are using the internet of things (IoT) to transform one of the first and most important customer and staff touchpoints: the door locks on which every person relies. Learn about the solution we have created with leading industry partners.
Employee safety concerns are on the rise across all industries. Joining forces with industry leaders, CommScope is making it easy to implement staff alert solutions while building a flexible foundation for tomorrow’s IoT applications.
Intelligent buildings promise new levels of energy efficiency, occupant health and visitor productivity through innovative uses of highly connected, autonomous systems that support connected entry solutions, lighting, occupancy sensors and personalization tools.
IDC predicts worldwide IoT market spend will grow to $1.1 trillion in 2021, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.4 percent. Organizations are eager to embark upon IoT projects; however, the trend is fraught with complexities spanning the endpoint, network/connectivity, and software layers, leading to concerns about security, privacy, and cost management.
