Verizon Looks to Connect
 
 

From the smart home to connected healthcare and in-vehicle systems, M2M (machine-to-machine) technology is affecting nearly every aspect of our lives. This week at CES, it’s clear Verizon Wireless, www.verizonwireless.com, aims to support this connected world.

Verizon announcements span far and wide. A partnership with Manley Solutions, www.manleysolutions.com, for instance, has produced a 4G LTE-enabled air-quality-monitoring system that uses sensors and wireless telemetry to provide data (and therefore, insight) into a person’s living and/or working environment.

The MS110-V Air solution contains an LTE module from Novatel Wireless, www.novatelwireless.com, and allows users to collect and transmit indoor air-quality measurements, which can be particularly useful in healthcare situations such as nursing and assisted-living homes. The system can generate realtime alerts and communicate with a variety of peripheral medical devices.

Verizon has also partnered with HID Global, www.hidglobal.com, and Yale Locks & Hardware, www.yalecommercial.com, to create a “mobile key” solution. Using NFC (near-field communication) technology, Verizon says smartphones carrying HID Global Mobile Keys can be used to open doors fitted with Yale Real Living locks.

Verizon’s network will also power the Vectraplex Holter System, an ambulatory cardiac monitor being developed by VectraCor, www.vectracor.com. The companies say this technology will detect crucial changes in an ambulance patient’s ECG in realtime. Any changes will be automatically sent to a physician over the Verizon Wireless network to increase the professional’s ability to care for the patient once he or she has arrived.

Another CES announcement in conjunction with In Motion Technology, www.inmotiontechnology.com, unveils a wireless mobile-router system that extends Verizon’s 4G LTE network to the vehicle. The In Motion Technology onBoard system transforms vehicles into mobile hotspots.
