What is interplay and why is it so important?

All businesses and technologies operate in environments where various ecosystems interplay with each other, for example, the hardware ecosystem and the software ecosystem. New hardware makes new software possible—and software ideas are challenging the hardware industry to make them possible.

The 7 principles for future digital success

Editor's note: This is the first of eight posts featuring our Cloud Conversations podcasts with Jason Hoffman, CTO for Business Area Digital Services. This first post starts with an introduction by Geoff Hollingworth, Head of Campaigns and Activation for Business Area Digital Services.

Operator voice services over IoT devices: demonstrating VoLTE calls over Cat-M1 networks

Many hundreds of millions of VoLTE-capable mobile phones are already being used by consumers and served by mobile networks delivering voice calls over LTE. The Internet of Things (IoT) device market is also expected to grow significantly in the coming years. This also opens an interesting segment for operators to explore further: voice communication services for cellular IoT devices.

Knowing the (Net Promoter) Score -- and how it impacts your business

In the digital age, word of mouth has never been so powerful. Of course, today, it’s word of tweet, Facebook post, email, you name it.

How voice calls will improve the IoT

At the iPhone launch event 10 years ago, Steve Jobs famously said that the iPhone’s killer app was making calls.  It was voice, not music or the touchscreen or the camera, that would make or break his new device.

Why aren't there more 'smart' devices in our lives yet?

The name of the popular Scottish indie band, We Were Promised Jetpacks, evokes a bitter nostalgia felt by many who grew up watching science fiction movies and TV shows. If, as many pundits say, we are currently living in the future, then why isn’t more futuristic stuff permeating the lives of regular people? Where, for example, are all the smart houses? By smart houses, I mean houses full of smart devices, the kind we might have seen on an optimistic show like The Jetsons, that popular projection of early 1960s American optimism as the future of middle-class bliss.

Do you have the right storage infrastructure to accommodate constant change?

IT vendors love their superlatives… you’ve heard it before…  “Data is growing at an exponential rate and by the year 2020, we’ll have a gazillion zeta-bytes of new data created every day." But if you look past the hyperbole, the creation of data is growing. But beyond just transporting and storing that data, what’s more important is the value that’s embedded in the data and how businesses are able to extract that value in real-time. That holds true across industries: manufacturing companies deploying IoT solutions, financial services companies trading securities and managing risk, enterprises looking for and preventing cyber threats, eCommerce companies with real-time marketing, and the list goes on and on.

How to include your legacy systems in our hyperscale vPODs

Did you know that you can include certain legacy servers in the virtual performance-optimized datacenters (vPODs) configured by our hyperscale system (Ericsson Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000)? In fact, if they speak either Internet Management Protocol Interface (IPMI) 2.0 or the Pooled Systems Management Engine (PSME) protocol, we treat them as first-class vPOD citizens, with the same capabilities as our rack- and sled-based resources, including no degradation in performance.

Are you ready for the internet of carbon (IoC)?

Someday, humans might be connected directly to the internet. It will be the final step of a process that has been going on for a long time. But if we're smart, we'll have the proper infrastructure built far in advance.

White Walkers and the Internet of Things

The White Walkers are coming. So is the Internet of Things (IoT). In both cases, the real danger is denial.
