    Without robust networks, innovative IoT use cases go nowhere

    Behind every great application is a great network, and this is especially true for the Internet of Things. Its futuristic use cases often sound like something out of a science-fiction movie, and it takes a fast, reliable and secure network to bring them to life.

    In this issue of Network Evolution, we take a look at four organizations with innovative IoT use cases that combine intelligence with automation, such as the city of Los Angeles' plan to use its network to automatically shut off residents' natural gas lines in the event of an earthquake. On the opposite coast, Boston Medical Center has employed IoT technologies in its maternity ward, where nurses in the neonatal intensive care unit automatically get alerts if sensors detect sudden changes in their young patients' vital signs.

    IoT use cases like these can't happen without a resilient, high-performance wireless LAN that's backed by an equally strong wired network. In this issue, IT pros share how IoT use cases have influenced their network designs and deployments, including where they place access points and how they manage the bandwidth used by connected devices.

    Also in this issue, we take a critical look at network automation tools to see whether they're able to fulfill everything that they promise. Finally, we talk to former network engineers who have climbed the career ladder to become network architects. We dive into what you need to know about taking the plunge, what skills to buff up on and how much of a salary bump you can expect.

    3D printing technology is at a crossroads

    There's been a lot of hype around 3D printing technology lately, with commentators using labels like "the next Industrial Revolution." Does the technology stand up to the buzz? Harvey Koeppel, SearchCIO columnist and former CIO, says yes -- and even believes that this current hype vastly underestimates the technology's potential impact. As cases in point, Koeppel lays out several industries that are currently being transformed by 3D printing technology, including aerospace, commercial manufacturing, and medicine and life sciences.

    In this SearchCIO handbook, Koeppel shares 12 tips for how CIOs can seize opportunities that arise daily from 3D printing technology. In our second piece, CTO Niel Nickolaisen makes the case for how to use 3D printing and other emerging tech to assess a company's capacity to experiment and scale. In our last piece, Senior News Writer Nicole Laskowski lays out how CIOs can take advantage of 3D printing to rebrand IT as an innovation partner.
