Connected Medical Devices: Blood Analysis Machines

Based in Europe, the company manufactures blood analysis machines (blood analyzers) which are used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities across Europe, Middle East, North America and other parts of the world.

Business Challenge

The company wanted to remotely monitor its blood analyzers so it could swiftly action on performance issues. As on-site IT networks are prone to outages and congestion, the company wanted cellular connectivity for its blood analyzers to ensure uninterrupted data transmission.

Sierra Wireless Solution

To this end, it chose a cellular gateway from Sierra Wireless’ AirLink® series to ensure that its blood analyzers were always connected. Because the gateway is an out-of-the-box solution, the company did not need to design special IoT hardware for machine connectivity.
