Since 1959, Westone has developed technologies and custom products for the hearing health care and preservation market. Many of these tools and products are still in use by professionals and patients today. Relying on the same in-ear technology principles used in hearing and health care products, Westone developed specific balanced armature in-ear monitors for musicians that were designed to eliminate the need for on-stage monitors and block out hazardous live noise.

Established in 1958, Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) is the largest private funder of hearing research. HHF's grantees have become leaders in the field of hearing research, with many going on to receive important federal grants. Former grantees make up 20% of recipients of the prestigious Association for Research in Otolaryngology Award of Merit. In 2011, HHF launched The Hearing Restoration Project (HRP), a consortium of the field's top researchers to provide a biologic cure for hearing loss in the next ten years.  This historic endeavor will forever change the landscape of hearing loss solutions and affect the lives of millions of Americans who currently live with hearing loss.

"Westone is committed to building in-ear monitors for musicians with the focus on hearing protection. When we were approached in the 1990s to design the first in-ear monitors for Rush and Def Leppard, Westone created and delivered impeccable sound design as well as product that would protect the musicians' hearing," said John Lowrey, Vice President at Westone Audio. "Our commitment to Hearing Health Foundation, with a portion of every music product sale donated to HHF through the end of 2014, will help with their efforts to preserve hearing and help find a cure to hearing loss. Westone Audio delivers the best audio and hearing protection products to musicians and music lovers, and we are honored to support HHF as they work on a cure for those who have already experienced hearing loss."

"Hearing Health Foundation appreciates Westone's commitment to hearing preservation and their support of our work to cure hearing loss within the next decade," said Melody Seiling, Associate Director, Hearing Health Foundation.  "Together we can make hearing loss a thing of the past and help people to hear music for years to come."

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
