It’s true you know – I used to be able to touch my toes .

Not many blogs start with a personal revelation like that – bet you are hooked already. As I reflect on the glory days of my youth it is with great pleasure that I reminisce about playing a variety of sports. As a younger man, adapting to multiple sporting disciplines and being flexible in my approach to different challenges was important if I was to succeed. The two important words that need highlighting from that previous sentence are “adapting” and “flexible.” As I have grown into an elder statesman, my ability to adapt is less, and I am certainly less flexible as my pulled muscles will testify.

Dec 20, 2018 9:00:00 AM

A common question I’ve heard asked over the past few weeks is, “Where did 2018 go?”. I genuinely can’t believe it myself as I sit here typing this blog. Traditionally a time for reflection and review, the end of the calendar year is also a time for thinking about aspirations and goals for 2019.

by Peter Kuciak

Dec 19, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an extremely hot topic these days, but just stating that a solution or application has “AI” in it has become a bit too popular. The key questions or topics should be “What exactly is AI? How is it being used in your system now and what are your future plans?”.

Internet searches on “AI” deliver a multitude of results on the topic to help you learn and understand the latest state of AI, the ongoing research, as well as many interesting use cases. This blog will discuss some of the use cases where AI can make an impact for CPSs, as well as end users utilizing next-generation applications and services.

by Peter Kuciak

Nov 2, 2018 11:30:00 AM

We now live in a time where most of us have heard of smart speakers and quite a few of us have one (or two or more). According to our friends at Gartner, Ovum, and Voicebot.ai who specialize in smart speaker research, the world has adopted these tiny devices into their homes at an incredible rate. Living rooms and kitchens are the most popular locations to place them, and Amazon has over 70% of the market. Looking at recent reports, 1 in 5 U.S. adults have a smart speaker, for a total of over 48M in the U.S. alone.

The Dialogic BUZZ UC Platform Swiss Army Knife

by Chris Boulton

Oct 24, 2018 9:00:00 AM

 

Several weeks ago I wrote a blog that documented my time from a fledgling start-up company based in the UK to joining the Dialogic family. In that musing, I referenced the exciting experience over the last couple of years as the company reinvented itself into one that is lean, agile, and ready and able to succeed in the new world of virtualization and cloud. Remaining on the same theme, this blog delves a little deeper into the world of Dialogic to reveal exactly how we have remodelled the very core of the company from the ground up though our product offerings.

There is currently a lot of momentum behind IoT (Internet of Things) and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things).  We’ve looked at the consumer IoT situation in a previous installment of this blog series, now let’s have a peak at the non-consumer side of the fence – the IIoT acronym adopted by the industry.

Dialogic PowerMedia MRF – A Solution You Can Depend On

by Chris Boulton

Sep 25, 2018 9:00:00 AM

I was lucky enough to be welcomed into the Dialogic fold nearly four years ago – time flies. After being part of a great experience in creating a new start-up company from scratch, Dialogic seemed to be the perfect landing place for our “baby.” I often ask myself why the marriage was perfect, and so thought I would share some musing of my experience to date as it is an analogous story to those of both new and existing Dialogic customers.
