September 10, at 12:30 p.m. at Super
Mobility Week, held September 9-11, 2014 at the Sands Expo and
Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“CTIA awards recognize the best and most innovative products and
services for wireless companies looking to improve their operations and
their engagement with their customers,” said Robert Mesirow, CTIA vice
president and show director. “Perfectly positioned for retailers to
prepare for the holiday buying season, Super Mobility Week attendees
will see what will be the next hottest devices and services.”
Phone is a virtual PBX service, which empowers small business owners
with a dedicated toll-free or local business telephone number that can
be forwarded to a user’s existing phone. Cloud Phone supports multiple
employee extensions worldwide, and offers convenient telephony features,
such as sophisticated call routing, transcribed voicemail-email
delivery, web callback and more. The all web-based service is managed
through a sleek user interface and can be set up in under a minute.
Launched in February 2014, Cloud Phone has already won multiple awards
for its simple yet effective phone solution for one-to-10 person
businesses. A 30-day free trial is available to all new subscribers.
Voxox’s consumer mobile
app for iOS and Android offers consumers an unmatched combination of
communication features, such as free worldwide calling and texting to
all phone numbers, two-way electronic faxing, on-the-fly language
translation, group rich-media sharing, voicemail transcription, and much
more. A powerful OTT service, Voxox is revolutionizing the way consumers
communicate by allowing users to communicate with Voxox users and
non-Voxox users alike, without ever having to leave the app. All
Voxox-to-Voxox communication is free, as is all inbound communication to
Voxox accounts from non-Voxox contacts. New users receive free
credit for their Voxox account, which will be topped up every month.
“To have not one, but two, of our products recognized by such a
well-respected industry group like CTIA is a tribute to the hard work
and dedication of the Voxox team,” said Bryan Hertz, co-founder and CEO
of Voxox. “Our mission is to create true unified communications for both
business and consumer users, and this honor shows that we are well on
our way to achieving our objective.”
Along with CTIA’s two other awards programs, Hot for the Holidays and
MobITs Awards, there were almost 300 entries submitted and scored by
more than 50 industry experts, analysts and media.
Super Mobility Week attendees and online users will also have the
opportunity to choose a “Crowd Favorite” by voting for their favorite
product, not just finalists, in each program. Online
voting is open now and runs until Monday, September 8, at 5:00 p.m.
ET. Super Mobility Week attendees can still vote via text onsite

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights.
At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
