As automation becomes more and more prevalent, it’s becoming progressively clear to our experts how entwined our products and services are with this aspect of digital transformation.
Automation is essentially the use of technology to perform tasks and processes that were previously done manually by humans. It involves the use of machines, software, and other technologies to perform tasks with minimal human intervention. Automation can be used in various industries, including manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, and finance, to streamline processes, reduce errors, increase efficiency, and save time and money.
In manufacturing and industrial settings, automation often involves the use of sensors, cameras, and other devices that generate large amounts of data. To transmit this data to automated systems for processing and analysis, businesses require high-speed internet connectivity, such as fibreoptic broadband, as well as reliable wireless connectivity, via cellular or Wi-Fi networks.
Telehealth involves the use of technology to provide remote medical care, including remote diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment. This typically requires high-speed internet connectivity, as well as secure and reliable data transmission and storage, which may be provided by virtual private networks (VPNs) and cloud-based storage services.
Smart buildings use automation to optimise energy use, improve security, and enhance occupant comfort. To enable this automation, businesses often use IoT devices, such as sensors and smart thermostats, that can communicate with automated systems over wireless networks, as well as reliable high-speed internet connectivity.
Automation is increasingly being used to optimise supply chain management, with automated systems used to track inventory, manage logistics, and optimise freight routes. To enable this automation, businesses need reliable wireless connectivity, such as cellular or satellite networks, as well as cloud-based data storage and processing services.
Automated chatbots and virtual assistants are being used to provide customer service and support. To enable this automation, businesses need high-speed internet connectivity and secure data transmission, as well as cloud-based processing and storage services.
These are just a few examples of how telecoms services are enabling digital transformation across all industries. If you’d like to discuss how we can help your business, please reach out to our experts.
