(PRWEB) February 01, 2012 -- CradlePoint, a leader in enterprise connectivity, today announced its participation as an industry spokesperson at the 2012 M2M Evolution Conference. Hosted in Miami, M2M Evolution brings together a variety of industry stalwarts to help set the direction, address challenges, and discuss the application of Machine-to-Machine’s (M2M) growing pervasiveness. CradlePoint’s Vice President of Business Development, Ken Hosac, will speak about the impact of wireless broadband as a primary connection to ensure business continuity specifically within the healthcare and SmartGrid markets.

A leader in the 3G/4G market, CradlePoint developed its CradlePoint COR Series specifically to meet the space constraints and connectivity challenges of the M2M market. CradlePoint’s COR Series provides instant and reliable 3G primary connections for a multitude of applications, including retail, kiosks, digital signage, surveillance and monitoring. Unlike other embedded 3G routers in the market, the COR series provides multiple Ethernet ports and robust Modem Health Monitoring (MHM) to self-monitor and to maximize modem uptime. Large deployments of these devices can be managed using CradlePoint’s WiPipe Central management software to monitor, configure, and upgrade geographically-dispersed systems without requiring on-site technical resources.

“I am looking forward to both attending and speaking at this year’s M2M Conference,” said Hosac. “As wired and wireless network infrastructures converge, the M2M market has turned to CradlePoint to keep up with the growing need for reliable, high-bandwidth M2M networks that can be quickly integrated and deployed without the constraints typically associated with wired connectivity. CradlePoint’s suite of M2M solutions is deployed across a variety of applications and industries that require an affordable and highly reliable 24/7 connectivity solution. CradlePoint’s expanding footprint within the wireless market affords us a unique vantage point to see the industry’s evolution and growth.”

CradlePoint’s Ken Hosac is slotted to speak on two different panels:

Remote Patient Care: No Longer Out of Sight or Out of Mind
Tracking Alzheimer’s patients is not about the diagnostics but about the location. Many Alzheimer’s patients live at home or at a facility where the grounds are designed for their comfort. However the patients’ disorientation can lead to roaming. Monitoring location is essential for the quality of life. This session covers the use of remote health care systems to track the whereabouts, and the status of patients.

Smarter Solutions for the Smart Grid
Ironically, as most carriers talk about dumb networks, most utilities see the SmartGrid as being utility centric. The real question is: “What are the opportunities for really smart applications, and how can they be delivered?” Are the smarts really in the grid, or at the edge?
