PressReader offers an impressive and quickly growing catalog of the world’s best titles, including a notable collection of 700+ international magazines. Readers can even combine and add sections from their favorite titles into their home newsfeed to create their own publication.

“PressReader’s technology is leading-edge with its in-place story expansion, natural horizontal reading flow, customizable story collection, and assortment of intuitive and powerful features,” added Kroogman. “With its vast number of interactive features, it’s truly the best way to read real news from credible sources on a mobile device.”

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
