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)
In the initial presentations at the 4G World Conference in Chicago's
McCormick Place this week, several executive insights from Verizon, Nokia,
Telstra, IBM, and others focus on the need to expand speeds and network
capacities. One talked about the need to expand networks in order to handle
1000X the current traffic
The 4G World Conference is one of the best conferences to go to if you are
concerned with the future of wireless because there are many corporate
perspectives represented there. Besides hearing some of the strategic
directions industry leaders are taking, you can als... (more)
You can design a great enterprise cloud network, but it will be very
restricted if you are in a building that does not support broadband
connectivity or mission-critical applications.
What good is a multi-gigabit design if your connection to the central office
is not fiber? Or redundant? Can you even have a mission-critical network if
you only have one connection to one central office?
Here are five ways to tell if your building is obsolete.
Excerpt from James Carlini's upcoming book, Location, Location, Connectivity
How receptive is your building to all the new connectivity t... (more)
COMCAST's recent $45 billion acquisition of Time-Warner Cable was big news in
the Cable TV world, but it should be big news in the area of cloud computing
and network diversity.
Instead of looking at COMCAST as a cable TV provider, it is time that we
should be looking at it as another alternative to the traditional network
carriers like AT&T and Verizon for our data needs both at home and at the
Re-Thinking Cloud Computing Strategy
Do you have network redundancy in place in your cloud computing applications?
They cannot be considered "mission critical" if you ... (more)
Was there some bias as to what got said on Twitter on the night of the
Twitter needs to be able to handle large volumes and if they can't, they
cannot say that they are providing any accurate public barometer on something
as important as a Presidential debate.
On the last Presidential debate (with Crowley as moderator), I wanted to send

(this was about 8:50 p.m. Central Time). Evidently, the Twitter "Cloud" was
deluged with tweets and they had a hard time handling it.
There was a rush to submit tw... (more)
