Maximizing the value of your OpenStack investment requires new skill sets to ensure smooth deployment and integration of third-party hardware and software.
Cloud and virtualization have had a profound influence on computing and networking that one could not have possibly imagined just a few short years ago. Instead of spending hours installing an operating system and applications, today it is possible to launch virtual machines in minutes and containers in seconds.
As the Internet of Things continues to grow exponentially, it’s important to build the IoT architecture that will keep up with tomorrow’s connectivity demands.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a topic of great interest among both the technology and business community. This interest is justified as there is plenty of evidence to support the explosive business potential of IoT applications in the coming years. Indeed, as the number of connected devices increases, IoT is going to become an important part of our future.
We are very pleased to announce that NetAnticipate, Aricent’s closed-loop, intent-based Management and Network Orchestration framework has won the 2018 Network Transformation Award for “Best AI/ML Application” in the Innovation & Technology category. We’d like to offer a hearty congratulations to the over 120 nominees, especially Huawei who shares this prestigious award for their IDN Solution.
Connected Devices that make up the Internet of Things are expanding to the billions opening up new use cases across industries.
We have become more connected than ever before through the development of connected devices, or the Internet of Things (IoT). Kevin Ashton, cofounder and executive director of the Auto-ID Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), first mentioned the term Internet of Things in 1999, but the first device to be connected to the Internet was actually a Coke machine at Carnegie Mellon University in the early 1980s. A little over ten years ago, we were able to access the Internet through a laptop or a desktop computer. Today, IoT consists of everyday devices that are connected to the Internet, such as fitness trackers, vehicles, smart televisions, doorbells, light bulbs, home security systems, thermostats, and refrigerators.
Aricent finds ways to extend the life of your 4G investments through integration with cloud technology.
In 2014, for the first time, the number of mobile gadgets on the planet surpassed the number of people. Today, there are 8.5 billion mobile connections and 7.6 billion people. The number of gadgets is multiplying five times faster than the world’s population, producing mind-boggling amounts of data. Soon, the current infrastructure provisioning could burst at the seams as the overall data capacity cannot keep up with the amount of data volume created. It is imperative to start planning and implementing a new paradigm for connecting all these devices and managing the data they produce.
