Telecom Companies Grab Two Bright Spots After Last Year

Wed, 03 Feb 2010 15:30:00 EST

According to Market research firm Juniper Research, the number of Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks, otherwise known as 4G, is set to grow significantly with the number of subscribers exceeding 100 million by 2014. The LTE network is the next-generation, high-performance air interface for cellular mobile communication systems that promises at least five times the download speeds, about 100Mbps and a lower latency that would make VoIP and two-way calling more practical than on 3G networks, which is what is commonplace right now. The anticipated demand for 4G will fuel the need for embedded broadband and Ethernet IPs that have to be fed to an ever-growing number of new consumer form factors such as mobile Internet tablets, netbooks, media players, gaming consoles, etc. to provide network connectivity and interoperability. Juniper’s LTE report predicts that there will be multiple millions of LTE subscribers as early as 2011, and embedded LTE chipsets will become the second most popular means of access behind SIM cards by 2014. The excitement led by the myriad of Android devices and interest surge in augmented reality smartphones has created an emphatic shift of network investment toward mobile.

The Downside of Mobile Applications

Sun, 10 Jan 2010 18:00:00 EST

I had the fortunate opportunity to meet a classmate for coffee this week. I had not seen him for over a decade. He serves as a traffic cop and uses a TDS Recon mobile handheld computer in the course of his work writing tickets. During our conversation we discussed the rugged laptop he had mounted in his unmarked police cruiser. He said it had many of their police forms and documents on it, but that the mobile software was not able to keep up with the required edits and changes needed on the forms. As a result, they had stopped using it for much of their documentation.

Motorola Droid Review

Sat, 09 Jan 2010 23:00:00 EST

A number of my friends asked me about my new gadget…the Droid…of which I’m the proud owner. Here’s my assessment. Why I bought it…I wanted a more powerful handheld comms/computing device on a reliable 3G network. I’ve had all the networks, between the personal and professional comms devices I‘ve used, and Verizon can’t be beat for the places I travel. Even around town, I don’t lose the signal during calls as I have on other left-unnamed networks. The difference between the “blue” and “red” maps IS real, and all my iPhone friends have commented negatively on the connectivity issues. I guess the iPhone NEEDS the built-in wireless to offset. Don’t get me wrong…I would have bought an iPhone if they offered reliable communications; however, I carry my son and Dad on my plan, so I want my money’s worth and the comfort of knowing we can communicate in emergencies when I’m paying that much for broadband wireless service. BTW, I don’t have a home landline phone…I use my Droid for all communications so it MUST provide reliable service. Related posts:

Why I Started the NACJ

Tue, 29 Dec 2009 03:00:00 EST

The National Association of Citizen Journalists was formed out of a need that I discovered as the publisher of a weekly paper in suburban Denver. For more than a decade, I published a popular, free entertainment weekly tabloid in Douglas County, Colo., that had lots of fun stuff to read and to do and lots of ads, but very little news. In 2001, I started a section in my paper that featured news items concerning local people and events. I sought the help of several active citizens expecting them to provide news for these pages. Many that I talked to thought it was a great idea and promised they would send me news.

Back when the SCO litigation was under Utah district court judge Dale Kimball, whose decision that Novell owns Unix was overturned by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, Novell thought it was simply ducky that SCO’s case against Novell should go ahead of SCO’s case against IBM, which is how we wound up with the summary judgment that got trashed.

The Virtual Computing Environment Coalition

Thu, 05 Nov 2009 15:00:00 EST

Worldwide spending on data center technology infrastructure and services exceeds $350 billion annually, according to McKinsey and Company estimates, with half of that spent on capital expenses and half on operating expenses.Further, an estimated 70 percent or more of those costs are expended to maintain existing infrastructures, leaving 30 percent or less for new technology initiatives and applications that can provide breakthrough differentiation for businesses.It is also estimated that approximately $85 billion, or 20 percent of this total market, can be addressed with data center virtualization and private cloud technology by 2015.Cisco and EMC, together with VMware, have introduced the Virtual Computing Environment coalition, an unprecedented collaboration of three information technology (IT) industry leaders.Virtual Computing Environment Coalition CharterThe coalition has been created to accelerate customers' ability to increase business agility through greater IT infrastructure flexibility, and lower IT, energy and real estate costs through pervasive data center virtualization and a transition to private cloud infrastructures.Cisco, EMC and VMware have worked closely over the past year on a shared vision for the future of enterprise IT infrastructure -- private cloud computing. A private cloud is a virtual IT infrastructure that is securely controlled and operated solely for one organization.It can be managed either by that organization or a third party, and it can exist on- or off-premise -- or in combination. Private cloud computing offers the controls and security of today's data center with the agility required for business innovation at substantially lower costs.The Virtual Computing Environment coalition offers organizations of all sizes an accelerated approach to data center transformation with dramatic efficiencies that promise significant reductions in both capital and operating expenses. As a result, organizations will no longer have to choose between best-of-breed technologies and end-to-end vendor accountability.Ecosystem Collaboration and Open InnovationThe Virtual Computing Environment coalition already has partners committed to the coalition. This includes representation from the entire partner ecosystem, including systems integrators, value added resellers, service providers, and independent software vendors. read more[...]

Benefits from Web 2.0: Offshoring

Thu, 27 Aug 2009 08:45:00 EDT

One of the major denominators of Web 2.0 is ‘online collaboration’. As Don Tapscott puts it in his book ‘wikinomics’: ‘The old notion that you have to attract, develop, and retain the best and brightest inside your corporate boundaries is becoming null. With the cost of collaboration falling precipitously, companies can increasingly source ideas, innovations and uniquely qualified minds from a vast global pool of talent’. While offshoring has been growing in popularity over the past 10 years, the real breakthrough is yet to come. And while Linux started about 15 years ago, the open source movement has only started to gain momentum.
