5G Networks are being discussed and better defined by key industry
manufacturers and network carriers so they can be deployed in the 2020 time
period. They will represent a giant leap in capacity, baseline speeds and
overall capabilities. They have to. Consumers are turning to Smartphones
and tablets as the new ubiquitous edge technology for all their applications.
Many people have gotten a good taste of smartphones and all the applications
they can utilize with them. Now, the growing demand is there and both the
framework of networks as well as their capabilities must be upgraded
dramatically to keep up with user demand and exponentially growing traffic.
When approaching a new dynamic area in infrastructure, real estate, or
technology, a whole new framework for analys... (more)
This is a summary of a QNX webinar that was just presented on July 10, 2014
by BlackBerry (BBRY) and QNX.
This was an anticipated seminar because many people are looking for answers
to questions they have about the big buzzword, the Internet of Things (IoT).
They also want to know what role does the cloud-based product QNX play within
The QNX webinar gave a good overview of what the QNX product was and how it
fit into the overall business market. They are operating system agnostic,
which means they can work with any device, not just one type of Operating
Sometimes, people frustrated with the status quo within an industry come up
with a better solution, much to the surprise of that industry's experts.
Evolution comes from within. Revolution comes from the outside.
Wake up America - especially the politicians in California, Illinois, and
anywhere else where they are considering implementing a high-speed train.
High-speed trains are so "last century" and they are not cheap to build or
maintain. If they are not used to their maximum capacities and there is only
marginal ridership, they are a supreme waste of money and their residual ... (more)
So many organizations switched to third-party help desk solutions without
really putting in place any performance measures or tracking mechanisms to
really measure how good - or bad - the support is.
Some executives got a big bonus for "thinking out of the box" and coming up
with a cost-cutting initiative to outsource IT help desks. Those same
executives do not want to hear all the complaints of people getting no
results and wasting a lot of time in repetitive phone calls as well as no
solutions to their problems. Even routine problems become time-consuming
nightmares because th... (more)
Every cloud computing platform that is being sold today will be obsolete
prematurely unless they can retrofit them with a single-source timing device.
If cloud computing is going to be as pervasive tomorrow as some sales
executives have hyped them, the need for a more sophisticated platform has to
be fulfilled today.
It's not enough to tweak some components or put some functions like I/O on
the chip. That will definitely help performance, but we are not looking at
just shaving off some latency when it comes to financial and other
mission-critical applications. Clocking needs to ... (more)
