As IoT continues to expand in size and influence with eye-popping estimates on number of devices connected, the whole world had already fallen for the hype. Many businesses regardless of their focus, seek to harness its potential to innovate, boost revenue and grab maximum market. While companies are expecting big things from IoT and are embarking on IoT initiatives, there are some major implementation challenges that are usually overlooked. As a result, most IoT projects terribly fail to satisfy customer’s requirement during deployment.

IoT deployment is not so easy as it is imagined. Data privacy & security concerns, high cost of implementation, inadequate infrastructure, lac


Integrating Legacy Tech on the Internet of Enterprise

Every enterprise is a brownfield scenario. Many legacy devices, especially those used in commercial and industrial applications, tend to have long life-spans. Existing device/tech haystack, in an enterprise, makes up 85 percent of all devices (IMS research), all of which mostly run isolated applications. When new data networking capabilities come along – we don’t uproot our existing infrastructure and start all over again – we layer them on top of our existing networks, continuing to improve and enhance them as we go. This drives business transformation to optimize efficiency of old and new devices, prevent failures, and create new services.

In many developing countries ATMs are taken for granted, but the commonality or lack of it are used as parameters to measure the economic stability of developing countries. A recent IMF report specifies that ATMs are signposts of a growing economy. They act as indicators of access to usage of financial services by general populace which is a critical attribute for economic growth. In a way ATMs along with financial data are vital in measuring the country’s economic progress

 In developing countries with growing population the necessity for ATM sites has risen dramatically. In addition to this the uneven distribution of population demands ATMs in many remote sites. This explosion in the number of ATMs comb

As the 10th anniversary of the Earth Hour approaches, the climatic change is at a precarious tipping point. While the switching off of non-essential lights at home, historical sites and famous landmarks had its share of glory and benefits, it’s time we think ahead. It’s time to stretch the energy conservation goals and aim for better results. While it may not be possible to switch off the lights all around the year, we can sure give the energy conservation the precedence it deserves.

Industrial sector is the biggest consumer of energy and inevitably there is where most of the energy wastage happens. From Predictive Maintenance to Resource Optimization there are a lot of areas where energy wastage can be ea…


A Cambrian Explosion in IoT evolution

Studying the fossil record, evolutionary biologists have theorized an event called the Cambrian explosion. During a relatively short period, the diversity of animal life seems to have rapidly increased from predominately single-cell organisms to a much wider variety of complex organisms.

In many respects, the Internet of Things (IoT) seems like the evolution of previous telemetry and industrial networking technologies. However, the IoT’s potential to converge our physical and digital worlds justifies its place at or near the top of the hyped technology list. In 2016, we will witness the beginning of a new era, transformed by a Cambrian-like stage of explosive IoT evolution. During t…


THE PULSE OF TELECOM – 2016

The United Nations has declared 2016 as the International Year of Pulses. In an alternate Telecom universe, ‘Pulses’ could denote everything that ‘Service Orchestration’ stands for. There are quite many parallels between both. For example, Pulses play a key role in the process of crop rotation because of the ability to fix nitrogen in soil and in the food chain through protein contribution. Similarly, an unified service orchestration platform will play a key role in the telecommunications industry because of their ability to capture, design and automate network operations and simplify swivel-chair management routines. Software has moved to a new state of agile, flexible a…

With an expected threefold increase in the end point IoT devices by 2020 it is inevitable that there would be hardly a business that has not seen the presence of IoT within their domain. Yet the ideal offering of IoT for a business cannot be defined in a categorical way as the myriad uses of IoT varies according to each individual business needs. Even if it cannot be charted out in an explicit fashion, there are some benefits of IoT that are obvious and unified in its outcome regardless of the domain of business.

1) Get the most out of data
It has been estimated that 35 zettabytes of data will be created by 2020. In an era where data is the driving factor in running a business, IoT has a major role of collecting data fro…


US defense lab choose WebNMS Symphony Orchestration Platform to dynamically provision VPLS services

“The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has been pushing hard to automate its data center operations to free up staff to work on more difficult challenges, according to Jack Wilmer, infrastructure development executive at DISA. Speaking at the MeriTalk’s DataCenter Brainstorm this March, Wilmer mentioned that the agency is leaning on newer technologies such as network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) that allow  automation of  a number of tasks now performed manually.

Pentagon officials have been looking for an all-encompassing view of the Defense Department Information Networks (DoDIN) and clearly, this, automation is


How Network Operators Can Close the Agility Gap

IT workload migration from the enterprise data center to remote, cloud data centers, increasing IT mobility, and remote management for the Internet of Things (IoT) all drive the need for assured network services for business-critical communications.

Assured network services offer availability and performance guarantees, unlike the best effort services provided by the Internet. Telecom network operators see this assured service demand as an opportunity for revenue growth, both from existing services like Carrier Ethernet and MPLS as well as new, innovative services that incorporate SDN, NFV and M2M technologies. The highly diverse, reliable and scalable connectivity they can provide with thei…

This season, it wasn’t just March Madness at the NCAA tournament, we had quite our share too! Exhibiting back-to-back at two expos, the month of March had us on our toes and WebNMS left no stone unturned in shooting at the hoop of potentials. Satellite 2015, CCA Global Expo, Mobile World Congress, MPLS SDN World Congress, few of the most sought-after shows in the industry, offered us just the right opportunity to build relationships and meet prospective clients one-on-one. Here is a post match show summary,
