An IoT Addiction Gets Satisfied at MWC 2017

by Alan Percy

Mobile World Congress 2017 wrapped up on Thursday, bringing a close to the seemingly infinite exposition of mobile and wireless technologies.   From what you would expect in wireless base stations, antennas and what seems like a bazillion handset vendors, the event is also home to a wide range of network and mobile applications.  As a self-professed Internet of Things and home automation “junkie”, this was a chance to feed my addiction and see what was possible for both my home and in the spring house that feeds our shared water system at our recreational property on Rushford Lake.

ITExpo 2017 – Where Communications and IoT Intersect

by Alan Percy

Feb 15, 2017 9:33:16 AM

If you keep up to date with the latest innovations in communications technology, ITEXPO has always been one of the places to learn, meet key vendors, and network.  With a regular winter event in southern Florida every year, it’s hard to say “no” to attending.  This year did not disappoint, especially with the addition of a co-located Internet of Things (IoT) event and even more to see and experience during your trip to Florida.  A few key observations:

What to Expect at MWC 2017

by Jim Machi

Feb 14, 2017 11:35:27 AM

Mobile World Congress is coming up soon and it’s always fun to speculate on industry marketing trends one might expect to see.  First of all, with a generally poor 2016 for telecom infrastructure vendors, which comprise the bulk of the companies with MWC booths, we’ll probably see an overall muting of far out expensive “come look here” marketing and parties. I do expect to see three main trends, though

WebRTC Developer Workshops – Building Knowledge and Friendships

by Alan Percy

Dec 15, 2016 10:53:53 AM

 

This last month, we wrapped up the first round of six WebRTC and Cloud Communications Developer Workshops with a final push through both Paris and Lisbon.  After our whirlwind schedule of stops in November that took us to New Jersey, Chicago, Santa Clara, and Dallas, heading over to Europe a few weeks ago gave us some new perspective on what developers are working on and their priorities.  Thanks to the hard work that our instructors dedicated to the educational materials, our numerous guests learned how to build applications with Communications Platforms as a Service (CPaaS) mark-up languages, APIs, and WebRTC.  But what did we learn?

Great Application Ideas from the Developer Workshop Series

by Alan Percy

Nov 9, 2016 8:31:01 AM

When you get a group of creative minds together in the same room, you really never know what the result will be.  Over the last few weeks, Dialogic and Telestax have held a series of one-day WebRTC and Cloud Communications Developer Workshops, offering participants an opportunity to learn how to quickly create new voice and video-enabled communications applications.  With stops in Parsippany, NJ; Santa Clara, CA; Naperville, IL; and Dallas, TX; we were fortunate to meet some amazing people with even more amazing ideas.  As a final agenda item during each workshop, we asked the developers to give us some ideas on how they could use what they learned.  Here’s a snapshot of some of the ideas.

Time for IPX/Wholesale Operators to Pivot to Next Gen Services (Video)

by Thomas Schroer

Nov 4, 2016 10:04:45 AM

I had the opportunity to have a quick chat with Joanne Turner from Total Telecom TV at the recent Carriers World and IPX Conference in London. We rehashed some of the topics and key “take-aways” from the two day conference (I covered these in more depth in a couple earlier blogs; one on a roundtable I chaired on virtualization and NFV, and another on a panel I participated on where we discussed collaboration efforts and pushing the IPX envelope with next gen applications and services.)

Welcome to the Era of Cognitive Computing

by Alan Percy

Oct 31, 2016 4:34:20 PM

In 2011, IBM's Watson took on two champion players in Jeopardy, using early cognitive computing to soundly beat the champs with a vast library of knowledge.  But is wikipedia-like knowledge of trivia the best use of cognitive computing? It seems not. Interestingly, cognitive computing is finding real value in everyday human interactions, often playing the role of assistant or advisor, providing insight into data or human experiences to improve efficiency or accuracy.
