The supply chain for manufacturers and distributors is facing challenges around increased analytics, multichannel fulfillment, talent shortages, and the use of new technologies such as wireless, augmented reality, robotics and machine-to-machine (M2M). At the same time, there is continued focus on cost reduction and sustainability.
The Industrial Internet of Things is driving a huge transformation as it increases the interconnection between connected devices and analytics. The smart manufacturing enterprise can seize opportunities to maximize efficiency and safety through networking and intuitive collaboration with its users.
This eBook shares practical steps to follow for a smart material handling and logistics approach.
To improve safety and mobility across its 5,600km road network, the City of Toronto forged a partnered with HERE Technologies for the provision of traffic, incident, and historical traffic data.
Access to this data allows the city authority to see exactly what’s happening on its roads and more easily and affectively run studies on improvement projects.
This case study details how HERE Technologies enabled the City of Toronto’s transportation team to:
Work smarter with comprehensive network coverage and accurate data to aid analysis
Examine the impact of city projects without significant forward planning or expenditure
Ensure travel volume models used to drive decision making are calibrated to represent real-world truths

For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and
future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing. (IDC defines IoT as a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity.) These scenarios more tightly integrate “things” with other information, processes, and even value chains. Further, we demonstrate how companies in these industries leverage technology to create business value today and disruptive opportunities tomorrow.
When it comes to securing all the parts of a modern distributed network, endpoints remain
the most vulnerable outlier. Mobility has brought a flood of different devices that cross in and
out of enterprise networks on a daily basis. This public exposure, combined with inadequate
traditional endpoint security and a high degree of user autonomy, makes these devices
prime targets for malware infections and other forms of sophisticated attack that seek to
exploit the broader organization. And threat actors are finding enormous success along
To stay competitive, most organizations are currently embracing digital transformation
(DX)—including cloud services, smart Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and greater mobility.
These adaptations provide organizations with faster and more seamless access to critical
information, regardless of the device being used to access it. However, as distributed
networks expand and become more difficult to manage, the endpoint remains a weak link i
If you’ve noticed more employees accessing the corporate network using their personally owned mobile devices, you’re not alone. Many employees are boosting their productivity by using their smartphones and tablets at work.
Gone are the days of corporate IT departments dictating the types of mobile devices that could access the network. Bring your own device (BYOD) policies, while increasing employee satisfaction and productivity, are straining corporate networks.
This white paper describes the limitations of legacy networks, especially for supporting BYOD. Understanding these limitations can pave the way for a successful BYOD management policy for campus and branch networks.
This whitepaper provides an overview of how Craigs International leveraged Alibaba Cloud’s technology solutions, including Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN), Virtual Private Network (VPN) Gateway, and Smart Access Gateway (SAG), to build a global enterprise network. Alibaba Cloud’s solutions helped them improve business operations, increase efficiency, maximize profitability, and reduce OPEX and CAPEX costs. Craigs International wants to move to the cloud to build a global hybrid enterprise network by partnering with a technology player that has such solid experience within Mainland China.

The network has never been as critical to the healthcare sector as it is today. Electronic health records, Wi-Fi-connected medical devices, and clinician smart phones are among a plethora of healthcare technologies that depend on a stable network.
The consistent development of this infrastructure is key for the healthcare sector to continue its successes in creating new possibilities for management, patient and family experience, and patient outcomes.
Extreme Networks posed key questions to Nolan Greene, a senior research analyst with IDC’s Network Infrastructure group, who highlights the critical issues healthcare IT professionals must consider when building a network that maintains industry needs.

The last decade has seen many exciting advances
in connectivity accelerated by the near universal
availability of smartphones and tablets – leading to a
highly interconnected world.
The security of networks - and the businesses and
individuals that rely on them - has become top of mind
for the IT Security professionals who are responsible for
ensuring the safety of the data and the networks where
this information is utilized.
As high-visibility security breaches occur - affecting
ecommerce, banking, retail and other industries - the
critical importance of the security of the infrastructure
these businesses rely on continues to grow.
Security in the workplace is a daily fact of life. From
using ID cards to control physical access, to entering
passwords to join the network, to using software to
monitor and prevent unauthorized access, all are
routinely used to protect critical assets and information.
However, there is one key area where many
organizations still have potential vulnerabili
Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.
