Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE), a frontrunner in offering communications, networking, and cloud solutions tailored to various industries, has been awarded the 2024 Health & Wellness prize by IoT Breakthrough.

IoT Breakthrough is an organisation specialising in recognising and honouring the creativity, diligence, and achievements of IoT (Internet of Things) companies, technologies and products within the highly competitive technological sphere.

The Health & Wellness accolade honours ALE's Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess Stellar Asset Tracking solution, a ground-breaking IoT solution designed to aid healthcare organisations.

This application helps to address key challenges within the healthcare industry by improving patient care, safety and operational efficiency. It provides capabilities such as prompt emergency response, the ability to monitor and locate equipment usage, and ensure on-time maintenance.

Daniel Faurlin, Healthcare Business Line Manager at the Network Business Division of ALE, expressed his delight at this recognition. He said, "We are honoured to have been selected by IoT Breakthrough as the 2024 Health & Wellness award winner."

"This win demonstrates ALE's proficiency in translating our own internal digital transformation journey into the industry-specific solutions our clients require."

Faurlin further illuminated the importance of IoT in healthcare. He added, "IoT enabled health-related data is critical as it empowers healthcare professionals to make well-informed decisions regarding patient care, enhances preventive measures and can even prompt immediate emergency services. This recognition is a testament to ALE’s culture of innovation, and the dedication of our teams."

This award pays homage to the impact of ALE's innovative solutions to the healthcare industry, amidst an increasingly digital landscape. It highlights the strides being made within this field and the significance of IoT in creating sector-specific solutions.
