We're off to MedTech Ireland to discuss IoT connectivity and digital healthcare

13 September 2022

Next week the Telecom26 IoT connectivity team that works with our healthcare customers will be off to MedTech Ireland.

Taking place 21-22 September at Galway Racecourse, Medical Technology Ireland Expo and Conference will be “showcasing innovative medical technology products and solutions for the Irish medical device design and manufacturing industry”. 

Healthcare is just one of the market verticals that Telecom26 is working with to improve IoT connectivity.  This previous blog IoT healthcare and the need for global connectivity discusses the growth in the market with predictions that “the global internet of medical things (IoMT) market is expected to swell to a $158 billion valuation in 2022, up from $41 billion in 2017”.

Digital technology will be widely discussed at MedTech Ireland; the conference includes sessions looking at Digital & Connected Health Clusters strategy and how they add value” and Wearable IOT in Healthcare” led by Stephen Seawright, Centre Manager from the Wireless Sensor Applied Research Laboratory at Ireland’s Atlantic Technological University.

Of course, IoT is now starting to be deployed across the healthcare industry by both patients and  medical professionals.

Patients have started to use ultrasounds, thermometers, glucose monitors, electrocardiograms, smart medication dispensers, and more in the comfort of their own homes.

Telecom26, IoT and the need for always-on reliable connectivity

Telecom26 has been providing IoT connectivity to digital healthcare programmes across the world for several years.

In the case study section of our resource library you can read about how Telecom26’s IoT connectivity is helping to control the spread of infectious diseases.

In a nutshell, we are providing IoT connectivity to the ehealth and mobile health services of SystemOne across Africa - Ghana, Lesotho, Malawi Mozambique and Zimbabwe - and in Bangladesh. 

SystemOne is a pioneer in the rollout of ehealth and mobile health solutions across the world, implementing the digital backbone for medical diagnostics, and managing data for testing programmes for TB, HIV, Malarai, Ebola - and, most recently, COVID-19.

Telecom26 - your partner for IoT connectivity

At the heart of Telecom26’s IoT service for digital healthcare programmes across the world are our global eSIMs and physical SIM cards. 

These can be inserted in medical devices that need connectivity either when they arrive at the clinic, or at the point of manufacture.  This means that wherever the medical device ends up, with a Telecom26 IoT eSIM card it can connect to the local network.

So, rather than leaving the problem of connectivity downstream, to the end-user or agency that deploys the device - who may well end up blaming the device rather than poor connectivity - wouldn't it be better to ensure devices natively equipped with connectivity, ready to go when activated in the field?

Just one of our eSIMs in an IoT device:

  • Provides access to all of the networks covered by our global roaming service. That’s 1100+ cellular networks belonging to 650+ mobile operators in 200+ countries.
  • Removes the need to worry about the coverage of a single MNO, or the existence of roaming alliances. Our eSIMs select the best performing network in the area, cross-border, while providing enterprises with the freedom to change SIM profiles and services with ease.
  • Can be customised with routing profiles built for each IoT device according to a customer’s needs and budget. For example, for organisations that are more price sensitive we can ensure that our Global eSIM cards automatically connect to the cheapest service in the area.

In a nutshell, Telecom26 enables data connectivity, anywhere - so that your IoT device can connect to the best available network, regardless of location.

You can read more about our IoT eSIM service here.
