April 20, 2018 by Matt Louden

Keeping Communication Healthy

healthcare

In healthcare, a consistently reliable communication path can literally be the difference between life and death for a patient that requires around-the-clock care. So, it should come as little surprise that 90% of healthcare organizations will make significant investments into smartphones and securing unified communications over the next 12 to 18 months. In addition to this industry’s investment push, 73% of hospitals are also developing mobile strategies to address their company’s communication, collaboration, and clinical computing requirements. In today’s increasingly complex healthcare environment, the industry’s mobile employees share numerous concerns and challenges. An overload of different devices and platforms, a lack of standardized processes, and dissatisfaction with traditional communication tools are just a few reasons why these organizations are investing their time, energy, and IT resources into mobile technology now more than ever.

moon

Next year, man takes more than one small step when the moon gets its first mobile network. For the first time, scientists, astronauts, and other space explorers will be able to stream data and high-definition video from the lunar surface back down to Earth in real time. Though there’s no official launch date set, Berlin-based PTScientists—who lead this collaborative effort—say they’ve secured spots aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket set for takeoff next March. A True Team Effort In addition to PTScientists, experts from Vodafone Germany, Nokia, and Audi are all partnering to support this unique mission 50 years after the first astronauts walked on the moon.

Android: Alive and Well

Android devices

We’ve all heard it, said it, or thought it a million times: enterprise mobility is complicated. Especially if you’re trying to keep an Android-heavy mobile asset inventory secure. Even Google knows that’s the case. That’s why, in 2017, the company increased how many Android devices were receiving its security patches by more than 30%—securing a bigger portion than ever of its 60,000-model device ecosystem. In today’s enterprise mobility landscape, devices that stick exclusively to Google Play downloads are nine times less likely to encounter a potentially harmful application than those that use other sources. That’s because Google increased its mobile app screenings from once a week to once every day, leading to the identification and removal of 39 million potentially harmful applications last year alone. If you use one of the almost two billion global Android devices these updates will…
