Accudata Technologies Issued New Patent

Accudata Technologies (Accudata), provider of flexible access to data validation through innovative approaches to data transmission, announced today the issuance of U.S. Patent No. 8,625,762 for the use of providing additional information to called parties. The patent, entitled “System, Method, and Computer Readable Medium for Providing Enhanced Automatic Number Identification Functionality,” was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Jan. 7.

“I’m extremely proud of the advancements in technology that we’ve achieved through the years,” said Greg Smith, president and CEO, Accudata Technologies. “Our creativity and innovation are evident in the patents we’ve received, which now include a portfolio of 13.”

The patent provides a method for providing additional information to a called party in a communications network. For instance, a call is received from a calling party. Then, with the patent, a lookup of information relating to the calling party is performed in a database via an Internet Protocol (IP) connection. The lookup is based on an identifier which includes at least one of the calling party and the called party. If the information is located in the database it will be provided to the called party.

The information related to the calling party may be a name, city, state, address, hyperlink, photo, video or any information that can be sent via an IP connection.

“The new patent has a wide range of potential uses including the ability to share the physical location of a cell phone as well as the ability to send alerts that pertain to specific events,” Smith said. “Say a called party has ordered a refill of a prescription. The pharmacy could send information about the status of the prescription, operating hours and location of the pharmacy, potential allergic reactions to the prescription, websites for additional information and more. Health records could also easily be transferred from patients to doctors.

“Another alternative may include sharing situational data from an emergency service provider, such as the police or fire department. For example, a tornado may be heading towards a called party. The emergency service provider may initiate a call indicating that a tornado is heading towards the residence. The message may include the emergency service provider's name and telephone number, location and speed of the tornado based on the latest data, directions to nearby tornado shelters or other information related to the event. The possibilities really are game-changing and endless!”

Accudata offers a variety of validation services associated with telephone numbers. Some of these services include name and address verification, as well as bankcard authorization or to determine whether or not the person to whom the number corresponds is likely to pay for collect call charges.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
