Aricent held its immensely-successful #Hack100-II coding contest on 11 March 2016. But even after a month, it is far from over at least in the mind of every Aricentian. This was proven on 17 March when the #Hack100-II participants and other Aricent employees came together for the HackFest. This event was a technological expo that served a dual purpose. It allowed #Hack100-II participants to demonstrate their state-of-the-art solutions to a wider audience. More importantly, it was an opportunity for every Aricentian to interact with the participants and learn about emerging technologies and innovative solutions, which they had only heard about so far. Needless to say that the HackFest, which was organized in Chennai and Gurgaon, was a runaway hit.
What was touted as the ‘must-attend mobile telecommunications event of 2016’, just concluded with much aplomb. It set the tone for what the newest innovations in the fascinating world of small cells will be, and what trends to look forward to in this niche area. The much-awaited SCWS World was held at Intercontinental O2 Hotel, London, from 10 to 12 May 2016, and Aricent was a Sponsor at this prestigious event.
Unified Communications is an integral part of business which helps optimize processes and increase user productivity. Gartner defines unified communications (UC) products (equipment, software and services) as those that facilitate the interactive use of multiple enterprise communications methods. UC products integrate communications channels (media), networks and systems, as well as IT business applications and in some cases, consumer applications and devices.
It’s the alarm in my smartphone that helps me wake up every morning. Then it’s time to read my work e-mails and send responses. A newspaper is the other thing that one tends to read at this time of the day, but who needs a physical newspaper when you can install a news app on your smartphone and be up to date with everything that’s happening around the globe. After getting dressed up, it’s time for breakfast and to discuss the day's activity with an onshore client over an Instant Messaging application.
Everyone wants to be a part of a connected world. The LTE wireless technology provides the means to be connected anywhere, and to continuously improvise on it. Apart from meeting the high data rate/low latency demands, LTE works on many public safety aspects to be chosen as the standard to be used in many applications, which helps in ensuring the safety of mankind.
With LTE-Advanced telecommunication systems now beginning to be deployed, the focus has moved towards research and development of the fifth-generation telecommunication technology and services. The new fifth generation, better known as 5G technology for cellular systems, will probably reach execution stage, and be ready for deployment around 2020 or later. Future human society and economy will strongly rely on 5G infrastructure, and the impact will go far beyond existing wireless access networks with the aim for communication services, reachable everywhere, all the time, and faster. 5G technologies will be adopted and deployed globally in alignment with developed and emerging markets’ needs.
