Wytec Submits First Phase Proposal to the Department of Homeland Security

SAN ANTONIO, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 02/13/14 -- Wytec International, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Competitive Companies, Inc. (OTCBB: CCOP) (OTCQB: CCOP), today announced it has submitted a proposal to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program.

"Our successful network trials in Columbus, Ohio are strikingly similar to the DHS SBIR initiatives, which are about scalable network architectures and prototypes that allow first responders to connect via wearable technologies," said William H. Gray, President and CEO of Wytec. "We were approached by an internationally recognized research institute to pursue this opportunity because of our network scalability and throughput capabilities."

The institute's facilities provide proven research methodologies and testing facilities, and the institute has experience with product commercialization. These benefits complement Wytec's expertise with high-level network architectures, which are integral in the three-phase DHS program. Wytec's joint proposal includes standards definition, reference designs, compliance test models and a standards codification process for the integration of first responder wearable devices, vehicular devices, Land Mobile Radio ("LMR"), wireless data-offloading infrastructure and cellular infrastructure using smart phone and carrier-grade Wi-Fi data-offloading technology.

Phase I begins with a $100,000 grant for continued program design; Phase II awardees of the SBIR are awarded $750,000 to $1,000,000 for the successful testing of network prototypes. Wytec has included in its proposal its LPN-16 radio, which greatly enhances network scalability and small cell site location capabilities.

"After advancing to Phase III of the program, Wytec would be in a favorable contracting consideration with DHS, as well as with other U.S. government agencies needing similar communications requirements such as the Department of Energy and the Department of Defense," said Angus Davis, Chief Strategy Officer of Wytec International, Inc.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
