QINGDAO, China, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shanghai-based Zendai Group today unveils Himalayas Qingdao Hotel, the debut hotel for the new deluxe hospitality brand, Himalayas Hotels & Communities. Just before its soft opening, in March 2014, Himalayas Qingdao Hotel was hailed as one of the three 'Most Anticipated Hotel Openings in China' by the influential Voyage Magazine.
Himalayas Qingdao Hotel is the first lifestyle hotel in northeastern China's picturesque beachside city of Qingdao. Exciting, chic, and cultured, the contemporary hotel speaks the language of the world and delivers extraordinary moments through superior service standards and memorable gourmet and wellness experiences.
Himalayas Qingdao Hotel is ideally positioned in the seaside Laoshan District at the base of the culturally important Mt. Lao (Lao Shan), and just 10 minutes' drive to Shilaoren Beach. The lifestyle hotel forms part of Zendai Thumb Plaza, an integrated lifestyle community encompassing residences, shopping, dining, and entertainment. It's a convenient 25-minute drive from Qingdao Liuting International Airport and Qingdao Railway Station. Qingdao International Convention Centre, the Qingdao Beer Festival site, and Grand Theatre are right at the hotel's doorstep.
The stunning design of Himalayas Qingdao Hotel is created by HASSELL Studio Australia, the same firm behind the iconic designs of the Sydney Olympic Swimming Centre and Chongqing Grand Theatre. The contemporary interiors take inspiration from Mt. Lao and its natural lodestones. Used throughout the hotel, the attractive lodestones are naturally magnetic rocks that possess unique healing properties for the body and are imbued with fortune-favoring feng shui attributes.
Himalayas Qingdao Hotel offers 208 exquisitely furnished, paperless guest rooms, including 24 Suites. Every room features high-tech luxury amenities, including high-definition LED TVs, iPod docks, and complimentary WiFi. All-day Z1 Restaurant serves gourmet local and international cuisines. The fashionable Z1 Lounge Bar serves signature cocktails and fine wines, plus 'Aperitivo' happy hours.

Conferences, events, and weddings are a Himalayas specialty, with a total of 1,000 sqm of function venues including an elegant 340 sqm Grand Ballroom with a large reception foyer, plus 10 multi-functional meeting rooms ranging in size from 45 sqm to 120 sqm. All venues are equipped with state-of-the-art audio and visual capabilities.
"We are proud to unveil the world's first Himalayas hotel in the popular tourism and business destination of Qingdao. The new hotel offers world-class deign, exceptional services, and impressive meeting and dining venues. We look forward to delivering extraordinary moments to all guests, whether they are visiting for business or leisure," says Mr Akram Touma, CEO of Himalayas Hotels & Communities.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

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...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.
