Laird’s global team works to make a difference for our employees, our business partners, and our world. This includes affecting positive change in the world around us. This year, Laird has been privileged to host a talented group of interns and co-ops at several of our NA sites. Each group executed a Philanthropy Project to benefit their surrounding community. Examples include: a bake sale and raffle benefiting a local animal shelter; a book drive for a children’s literacy program; a park beautification project; helping with a children’s STEM event; and volunteering at a children’s soapbox derby event. These students exemplify Laird’s commitment to service.

A driver of the Connected Hospital, the market for Wi-Fi healthcare services is set to grow to $1.34 billion by 2016. Read this blog post to learn more! http://ow.ly/Q38lv
Through successful wireless medical device integration, Connected Hospitals have become the model of healthcare deployment that is economic, scalable, efficient and, most importantly, secure. The success of this approach to healthcare is largely due to Wi-Fi adoption which has led to an increased number of wireless medical devices.

How is the evolving healthcare field shaping the future for patients and healthcare professionals? http://ow.ly/P6zFq
With increasing hospital admissions, administrators are increasingly seeking to create models of healthcare deployment that provide value for money, are economic, scalable, secure and, above all, efficient.  The vision of the connected hospital is a simple one: a place where wireless technology allows caregivers and patients to roam around the hospital freely while providing accurate and timely monitoring. The vision itself stems from a technolog...

Laird protects electronics from heat with its new, more efficient AA-230 cooler.
http://goo.gl/Tr25at

That means the networks connecting everyday electronics like mobile phones and medical devices can remain operational longer.

A new innovative design means the AA-230 uses less energy while still providing the cooling power needed by the telecommunications and medial technology. The compact design also allows it to go places standard air to air coolers cannot.

Providing the best solutions to protect and connect the electronics we use everyday... that's Laird.
New AA-230 Cooler with Horizontal Mount protects electronics from heat, ensuring maximum uptime and low total cost of ownership. Global technology leader Laird (LRD: London) releases the new AA-230 Series Cooler designed to protect electronics used in telecom, industrial, medical, and analytical applications.

Heard about driverless or autonomous cars? They are closer than you might think.

Enabling a safer, more efficient highway system while empowering motorists through data is certainly the future of the automotive industry, but many more steps need to occur before it can be fully realized.

Laird's new White paper called "The connected highway" addresses some key questions facing the automotive world and discusses how Dedicated Short Range Communications (or DSRC) technology is enabling solutions.
Both the connected car and highway are complex RF environments. While OEMs will have a key role in developing their own value proposition of the connected car, the premise of it remains very much the same. Enabling a safer, more efficient highway system while empowering motorists through data is certainly the future of the automotive industry, but many more steps need to occur before it can be fully realized. Both the connected highway and its co...

Wifi in your car is the just the beginning of what we like to call the "connected highway."

http://goo.gl/s2Eaeq

When cars start talking to one another they can alert drivers about hazards ahead or even warn them before accidents happen. The result is a safer, more efficient, and improved driver experience.

RCR Wireless addresses some of the challenges and potential solutions regarding the future of driving connected cars on connected highways.
Connected cars driving on connected highways are in our future according to Laird. DSRC will be a key component of the solution, but what about LTE and 5G?

Laird Puts Connected Vehicles Through Real-World Testing

Laird sets the stage for next phase of implementation for connected vehicles and connected highways after being accepted to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Affiliated Test Bed program.

http://goo.gl/3Aj54x

The federally funded, operational test site was established to determine the feasibility and technical limitations of Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC). Laird will test modules, software and applications in a real-world traffic environment. The test bed includes intersections, roadways and vehicles that are able to communicate with each other through DSRC under actual operating conditions.
