Curtis Tilly, Director of Enterprise Media for Microspace Communications, recently authored an article published in the November 2014 issue of Sign Media Canada magazine, “Connectivity for Content Delivery.” Tilly discusses the advancements in wireless systems, the challenges that have been overcome, and how wireless services have evolved to support larger digital signage networks.
Tilly explores the factors that contribute to making digital signage a viable, cost-effective, and extremely reliable solution, with an emphasis on how wireless network technology has expanded the world of digital signage:
- Parallel networks: Today’s technologies make setting up parallel networks to accommodate security concerns relatively easy to install, and highly secure and robust.
- Development of hardware: The development of enterprise-grade modems and routers call for game-changing advantages for wireless networks, such as greater connectivity.
- Evolution of wireless business plans: High-data-rate plans with greater bandwidth and use limits are now affordable, making it possible to run digital signage without a wired infrastructure.
- Centralized monitoring capabilities: Managing content and monitoring network equipment is essential, and made possible by enterprise-grade providers.
