Today, digital signage displays are commonly controlled by personal computers or servers. The CuBox-i2w solution takes digital signage solutions into the 21st century by integrating dual core computing power with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as additional features such as extensive connectivity, a Real Time Clock mechanism, and more. The elegant mini-computer consists of a unique 2x2x2 inch design, has a miniscule carbon footprint, and is ideal for a variety of uses. Starting at just $99, the CuBox-i2w includes the mandatory requirements of most digital signage applications at a significantly lower price point than the majority of existing solutions on the market.

With Android becoming a more dominant operating system for digital signage applications, the CuBox-i series places a special emphasis on supporting the flourishing Android OS with its rich eco system. The CuBox-i platform core technology is based on SolidRun's state-of-the-art Micro System on a Module (MicroSOM) designed for the most reliable performance at low-power states.

"We believe that there is a growing need in the digital signage market for disruptive smart nodes technology in terms of size, power and cost. The CuBox-i offering is half the cost of existing industry-standard solutions, without any compromises on streaming and reliability capabilities," said Kossay Omary, SolidRun CEO.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
