|June 16, 2014 07:32 AM EDT
Networks Inc., the fiber access technology expert, a wholly owned
subsidiary of Communications
Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ-GM: JCS), today announced that its VP of
Product and Technology Development, Tom Savard, Ph.D., will speak on a
panel at Light Reading’s Inaugural Big Telecom Event, happening June
17-18, 2014 in Chicago.
On Tuesday, June 17, from 3:45 to 4:40, Savard will participate on a
panel entitled “Carrier
Ethernet & the Cloud.” As more businesses move mission-critical
applications and data into the cloud, they expect network services
connecting them to that cloud to feature the same on-demand qualities,
while retaining the reliability and availability for which Carrier
Ethernet is known. This panel will look at how Carrier Ethernet services
need to rapidly evolve to support flexible bandwidth models, and the
changes telecom network operators must make to their edge infrastructure
and service delivery processes.
Additional panel members include Mark Durrett, VP, corporate
communications and market strategy for Overture Networks, Inc., Michael
Kearns, CEO & founder of Amartus, Adam Saenger, VP of portfolio
management for TW Telecom and Ricardo Torres, director of product
marketing for VeEX. Carol Wilson, Light Reading editor-at-large,
will moderate the panel.
“With the growth of the cloud and increasing adoption of Carrier
Ethernet 2.0 services, the telecommunications industry is rapidly
changing,“ said Savard. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this new event
and look forward to a lively discussion with our peers and customers on
the future role of Carrier Ethernet in the industry.”
Located in booth #G2 in the SDN & NFV Service Orchestration demo zone,
Transition will be showcasing its software defined services (SDS)
solution that helps service providers compete effectively today by
facilitating the delivery of dynamic, on-demand, elastic services over
today’s CE 2.0 networks. Transition will demonstrate how its Converge™
service management solution allows dynamic programmability of the
network through its complete, fully integrated northbound REST API.
Booth visitors will have access to a live demonstration of the SDS
orchestration solution and will be entered to win a GoPro or an iPod
Products on display will include Transition’s latest Carrier Ethernet
2.0 solutions, including its S3280
network interface device (NID), S4140
10GE NID and its S4224
access switch with 24 100/1000Mbps ports and 4 10GE uplinks. Also on

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...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.
In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
