Ruckus Wireless Inc Research Report

Airtel Africa has chosen Ruckus Wireless to provide high-traffic wireless access points for a large-scale project that will introduce Wi-Fi networks across 17 African countries.

Installing Wi-Fi is more attractive than adding 3G and 4G LTE networks because of its affordability. Ruckus has not yet commented on the news, but shares for the Wi-Fi equipment maker have already jumped following the report. Aside from this potential deal, Ruckus has announced that Nomsys LLC has selected Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi products and technology to create the largest Wi-Fi network in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Ericsson (ADR) Research Report

Ericsson has been establishing partnerships to provide more products to its customers.

According to Hans Vestberg, President and CEO of Ericsson, "The global M2M service revenue is estimated to reach more than $200 billion by 2017. This partnership gives us a chance to unlock that potential." Furthermore, Ericsson has also partnered with Telstra to deliver world-class LTE experience for Telstra users and expand Telstra's LTE networks in Australia.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
