Top Stories by James Carlini

This article is an excerpt from James Carlini's upcoming book, Location Location Connectivity: 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)

Cloud Computing and Precision Time Protocol (PTP)

If cloud computing is going to spread to more mission-critical type applications, it needs to get more accurate when it comes to transaction-based applications. Trying to keep everything in a structured framework is going to require a more rigorous network infrastructure that includes timing down to milliseconds, if not nanoseconds. One way to accomplish this is to use the IEEE 1588 protocol or "Precision Time Protocol" (PTP), which provides timing. In an earlier article entitled, "Cloud Transaction Synchronicity," I discussed the need for this type of capability if financial or... (more)

Cloud Computing? Corning Sees the Light

In a recent Corning whitepaper, The Connectivity Premium, it discusses how commercial real estate developers can profit from forward-looking strategies in network infrastructure and wireless connectivity. Corning quotes ABI research that points out there are over 10,000,000,000 mobile devices already connected wirelessly, with that number expected to expand to 30,000,000,000 by 2020. With that type of growth, we need to expand the network infrastructure and upgrade its capacities across all commercial real estate because copper cannot handle the traffic that keeps growing geomet...

Cloud Computing: Impact of Comcast’s Acquisition

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 business location. 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)

The Five Rules of Cloud Computing Litigation

“Once you get into Cloud Computing and past the glossy euphemisms, you better watch out for the real rocks in the road,” observes James Carlini. “Cloud computing is the major approach that most organizations should be adapting for their applications in this new era of mobile computing.” You have all read the ads and the articles that hype it, along with all the overnight experts that tout how they know that Cloud Computing is the universal solution for today’s and tomorrow’s organizations. Now, let’s get back on the ground and understand what some of the real potholes and obstac... (more)
