Artificial intelligence (AI) leads the charge in the current
wave of digital transformation underway at many global
companies. Organizations large and small are actively
expanding their AI footprints as executives try to comprehend
more fully what AI is and how they can use it to capitalize
on business opportunities by gaining insight to the data
they collect that enables them to engage with customers
and hone a competitive edge. But, while AI may indeed be
the frontier of enterprise technology, there remain many
misconceptions about it.
Part of the confusion stems from the fact that AI is an
umbrella term that covers a range of technologies —
including machine learning, computer vision, natural language
processing, deep learning, and more — that are in various
stages of development and deployment. The use of AI for
dynamic pricing and targeted marketing has been in use for
a while, but actual AI computing where machines think like
humans is still many years from becoming mainstream. T
Mobility is no longer an IT trend: It is the new reality for how technology is deployed for business benefit. Research and consulting firm Forrester refers to this tidal wave of change as the “mobile mind shift” and emphasizes that it is more important than ever for enterprises to get it right the first time. But getting it right means more than just launching a customer app, implementing enterprise mobile policies, improving mobile device security or creating campus-wide hot spots. It means developing and continuously delivering mobile applications that truly make a difference for employees, business partners and customers. Increasingly, that means adopting new ways of thinking about how best to develop and manage mobile applications.
Life revolves around prediction—for example, the route you take to get to work, whether to go on a second date, or whether or not to keep reading this sentence are all forms of prediction.

Historically, the speed of a wired connection at the access edge has always been faster than that of a wireless connection. This means workers had to choose between the performance of wired connectivity and the convenience of a wireless connection. Consequently, workers often had to modify the way they worked— first, finding a wired port to use for high-bandwidth applications, such as video or streaming media, and then shifting to wireless connections when the need to be mobile was more important than having the performance of wired.
Today, though, the industry sits on the precipice of the biggest innovation in the history of wireless LAN: the release of 802.11ac Wave 2. Wave 1 of 802.11ac brought network speeds that were 1.3 Gbps (Gigabits per second), which is on par with wired networking speeds. However, 802.11ac Wave 2 shatters the gigabit barrier with speeds of up to 6.8 Gbps.
Miercom was engaged to perfirm independent, hands-on, comparative testing of competitive IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2-based WiFi Access Points (APs) from Cisco Systems, Aruba Networks and Ruckus Wireless.
This report summarizes the results of the Wave 2 AP comparative testing in these areas:
- Client density: Downlink throughput as the number of client per AP scales from 10 to 100.
- Single vs Multi-User MIMO: Downlink throughput for MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input Multiple-Output), a hallmark of 802.11ac Wave 2, vs Single-User (SU-MIMO) environments.
- 1 Gbps+ Link Aggregation: Tests found that Wave 2 APs can support more than 1Gbps of aggregate downlink throughput, tested over two 1-Gbps LAG (link aggregation) connections.

IT today is more complex than ever. Public cloud, networks, storage systems, servers, and applications all combine to deliver today’s IT services. But how do you manage such a diverse and complex infrastructure? Can legacy tools help after this seismic shift? This document answers these questions and provides 20 tools you need to deliver services in this new hybrid IT world.
Today’s IT environment provides greater promise than ever before. New technologies are driving new capabilities and even more opportunities to differentiate. The opportunity for innovation has never been greater: faster compute, more storage, and new applications all working together to drive greater efficiency and greater power. But this wave of innovations has also added greater complexity since one failure in this increasingly complex IT stack means a failure of the entire service. New consumer-focused cloud based applications are setting a high standard—nearly 100% up time with peak performance all while IT.

In 2012, 1.8 trillion display ads were paid for, but not seen. For advertisers looking for results, this is an unnecessary waste of effort and budget!
Thankfully the industry is rallying towards a viewability standard, signaling a new wave of accountability for publishers, advertisers and ad vendors. As advertisers embrace viewability, they can benefit from knowing that their ads are seen, eliminating waste, and increasing campaign accountability and effectiveness.
We conducted our own research and found that viewability is becoming a reality for improved campaign performance.
