Adapters are installed on the Vocera Platform in a solution package, or individually as needed by the customer.
The Vocera Platform uses adapters to integrate with external systems and devices. Each adapter is configured by the user to include information that will allow the Vocera Platform to communicate and interact with a specific type of resource and, depending on the adapter, devices that resource may control. Adapters can allow the Vocera Platform to monitor and collect data, as well as send data out, when triggered manually or automatically.
When implementing Vocera Platform at a customer site, use this document to install an adapter that is not supplied in the Gold Image. Otherwise, you will install a needed adapter when instructed in the solution package installation process described in the Vocera Platform Installation Guide.
