AQUA TAIWAN: From Factory Chains to Exhibitors and Global Distributors

Int'l Press Plugs in Taiwan's Global Place in Water

TAIPEI, TAIWAN -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- AQUA Taiwan will be held October 8-10, 2014 at Kaohsiung Exhibition Center. To date, more than 134 exhibitors have signed for 214 booths to showcase their products and services at the event. Pre-registered visitors will come from at least 14 countries including Singapore, Romania, China, Vietnam, USA, Belgium and Jordan. This annual international trade event is Taiwan's first and exclusive water trade show and an ideal platform for water professionals to network the latest solutions, services and technologies.

Under the glowing sun of southern Taiwan, reporters from key markets around the world joined a TAITRA-led factory tour from July 29 to 30 to probe the factories that churn out much of the leading exported water-related equipment. The tour also served as a build up to AQUA TAIWAN, Taiwan's first dedicated event for the water industry on October 8-10 at Kaohsiung Exhibition Center which is organized by TAITRA (The Taiwan External Trade Development Council).

The two-day factory tour introduced the strengths of Taiwan water industry to the trade press that included Michael Seller (Public Relations Manager of the Australian Water Association affiliated with Water Journal) and Arjan Veering (editor at the Dutch-language magazine WaterForum).

The excursion first visited ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute), Taiwan's leading R&D center headquartered in Hsinchu, and Tankpac in Taichung that manufactures more than 60% of global pressure tanks. Further south in Kaohsiung they visited Caware Filtering Corp which holds a leading place in filtration and Wei Han's special Viscarb filter factory. Finally, the tour wrapped up in Pingtung, at the south end of the island with a tour of Rotek's comprehensive water treatment solutions, a full-scale Design-Build-Operate project, and the Cheng-Ching Lake Water Treatment Plant operated by China Ecotek which can pump 540,000 tons a day. This was topped off by a trip to the Green Forest's 14.2-acre Nanzih waste treatment plant.

"I'll definitely recommend your water professionals to Australian businesses when I get back to my country," said Michael Seller. And Arjan Veering was impressed by the factory tour: "The tour gave a fine impression of the way Taiwan is working on its water technology."

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.
