The current gold standard as far as business technology goes is wireless/mobile computing. It’s what business and engineering courses are training the future workplace in using. It’s what provides an income stream and stock value to a whole mushrooming sector of the economy. It’s what makes large-scale projects in virtually any field not only easier to coordinate and complete, but also cheaper and faster all around. Finally, it’s what you and your company need to learn how to use, in order to maintain your lead over the rest of the competitive world.
As electronic product designs age, component parts become increasingly difficult to obtain. Component buyers may experience difficulty in obtaining key parts within the design. Component part prices may increase. A point comes when component parts begin going end-of-life at an alarming rate. Quick fixes are no longer sufficient. Sometimes an OEM will procure a 'life-time' supply of problem parts – but this supply can be quickly wiped out should unforeseen demand develop. Lack of component parts puts an end to production.There is an alternative. Profitable, old products can be redesigned. Either preserving the original form fit and function, or adding new features. Product redesign is a cost effective means by which to extend the life of a marketable product.
This white paper describes a virtualized infrastructure that applies storage and server virtualization technologies to cost-effectively achieve a flexible, high performance, dynamic IT infrastructure that is simple to manage and scale.
Shrinking product development cycles coupled with demanding product requirements and increasingly complex design implementations can overwhelm a design team. The technical risk of employing new, complex, high-speed processor technology can often deter a design group from incorporating new technology in their product designs.
While many enterprise architecture (EA) programs may be less than effective or threatened by extinction, the EA discipline is still an important set of skills and processes that improve IT decision-making and CIO effectiveness. Yet, after decades of architecting systems, the advent of several EA frameworks, and the many definitions available for the term EA, we still strive to understand what EA is, what it does, and what it looks like when it is successful.
While IPSec VPN implementation has traditionally been viewed as expensive and time-consuming for large organizations, Quocirca has found that the next generation of IPSec VPN technologies has addressed these management headaches through automation, integrated security policy management, and centralized control.
Ethernet communications is rapidly gaining popularity in industrial applications because it enables the real-time exchange of information between processing equipment and companies' Ethernet-based management systems. The emergence of protocols such as EtherNet/IP enables engineers to attain the advantages of using Ethernet in industrial applications.

Companies who use 3D printing in the design process have a distinct competitive advantage due to its speed and ability to facilitate design communication and concurrent engineering throughout an organization.
As if the selection of manufacturer weren't enough, many encoders offered in today's marketplace are highly configurable. Resolution, shaft size, seal options and connector variations all confront the design engineer with serious choices. Output type is equally important. In this paper, we'll cover some of the more typical applications and common output types.
In most drilling applications encoders are used to provide position and speed feedback for proper control of equipment like top drives and pipe racking systems. However, these electronic devices require special attention when used in hazardous environments such as a drilling platform. In this paper, we discuss ways to make encoders suitable for hazardous duty.
Performance management is a subset of Performance Engineering, an emerging computer science practice which strives to build performance into the design and architecture of a system, prior to the onset of actual coding effort. Any technology which is measured can be managed easily. Find out how in this paper.
The recent momentum of Unified Communications (UC) and the disruptive enabling technology of IP Telephony have created a convergence between Voice Engineering and IT departments that is unprecedented - even since the advent of computer telephony integration. However, despite rapid and significant advances within these technologies, many enterprises, even the early adopters, have not fully embraced the alignment of these two worlds.
In this document, you'll learn to enable the successful execution and completion of IPT Deployment projects through a standardized set of processes and methodologies based upon Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) standards.
Clarus Systems, Inc. answers the demands of the market by providing enterprises, systems integrators and managed service providers with scaleable IP Communications solutions that maximize ongoing operations and ensure increased end user confidence and efficiency. Learn more about Clarus Systems and how they can help your business in this data sheet.
Enterprise networks are going through massive change, and the convergence of voice and data including Communication deployments, upgrades, transformations and ongoing management remain a top priority. According industry analysts at Aberdeen Group, 61% are planning for Communications in the next two years. In order to get the most from their Unified Communications investment at the time of deployment and beyond, enterprises must leverage both active testing and configuration analysis techniques to certify and validate that environments are configured as designed.
Accessible through a web-based, interactive dashboard, the latest version of the ClarusIPC Plus+ solution integrates performance management capabilities that create real-world "What-if" scenarios to predict capacity issues before they have a chance to impact end users. By monitoring KPI's such as server health, gateway capacity, media resources and device registration, you consistently maintain the ability to estimate future bandwidth needs.
In today’s global marketplace, you rely on your IP telephony environment to unite employees who work remotely, in a branch, or at the office headquarters by providing seamless, effective communications. Whether at the time of deployment, during an upgrade, or through an operational review, validating these environments to function properly and meet user expectations is critical.
Clarus Systems, Inc. has collaborated with IQ Services to deliver technology independent testing solutions that enhance end-to-end voice process lifecycle management within the contact center. The goal is to ensure a positive customer experience by incorporating voice testing and monitoring into every step of your contact center's life cycle - resulting in confidence that your solution works as designed.
In 2005, O’Hare International Airport began a project to relocate and modernize a 2.1 million ft.2 runway. Five independent firms worked on the project design with the IT/data management led by Milhouse Engineering and Construction, Inc. Milhouse implemented GlobalSCAPE WAFS which mirrors critical files to all sites. This provided fast local access to all project files automatically without any administrative burden and with no delays.
