The Future Of Computing And Microchips – NJIT

In the last five decades, the world has witnessed unprecedented advances in computer technology leading to the incorporation of processors in a wide range of appliances including vehicles, electronics, kitchen appliances, and even clothing. In addition, modern smartphones and tablets contain powerful processors that support computationally heavy/complex tasks such as image/video editing. In spite of this, companies including Intel and AMD are investing heavily in research with the aim of producing even smaller microprocessors in the near future.

Anything-As-a-Service (AaaS) – The next Cloud Concept

We have heard and talked about Cloud Computing, Models and System http://www.flukkytom.com/cloud-computing-what-is-it/ and the increasing adoption by todays big firms and corporate organisation. But the adoption brings question about security, loss pf privacy and unauthorized access to confidential data but nonetheless businesses still see the cloud as a way to go, with even the mobile business entering large era of Cloud system ad Tablet Cloud Apps.

Today the three defined Model of Cloud IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS has taking off with IBM, Amazon-rds, Windows Azure, CloudFoundry, RackSpace, Oracle, Heroku, Google just to mention a few and even Telecoms branches in with Content Cloud. The idea Cloud has brought is the global reach of throwing Service directly in front ahead of Products and everything is going Service Oriented even Products.

Okay today, I say the 3 large models cannot define what we have in the service industry today, i wish i could define SaaS (Service-As-A-Service) or Product-As-A-Service (PaaS2) so inshort i think we should rebuild the Model with the top being AaaS (Anything-As-A-Service) before breaking down to either Platform, Software, Infrastructure, Products or whatever it maybe.

Well, i guess putting it like that gives Cloud Computing a Service-Like Definition which includes the enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources, whatever the resource can be that can be shared in the service-sphere is good to go. As said earlier, Startups run on Cloud systems, Apps fly fastest on the Cloud, even conceptual services are now branded in the cloud. Simply put, since anything can be taken to the Cloud-base level then AaaS is a broader model mother for Cloud.

Okay, I know Anything in AaaS sounds not professional so should we try EaaS (Everything-As-A-Service)?

Cloud Communications {Voice & SMS}

Cloud communications are Internet-based voice and data communications where telecommunications applications, switching and storage are hosted by a third-party outside of the organization using them, and they are accessed over the public Internet.

Prepaid Telecommunications: A Vendor Perspective

Telecommunication is the transmission of messages (voice, sms, video, audio e.t.c), over significant distances, for the purpose of communication. With todays mobile communication, The GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) standard has dominated the affairs of mobile telephony and with numerous operators worldwide and vendors, Its safe to say Mobile is a world of its own.

Early GSM Architectures concentrated on the access and control layer of mobile technology with connections with Fixed like PSTN but today the Application/Service Layer is increasing and its taking the new turn in business and service provisioning to both the mobile end-users and mobile operators. Least to say the present market sells on services, applications and medias.

Prepaid services refers to services paid for in advance and one key advantage of this is because they allow customers to monitor and budget usage in advance. This is evident is todays mobile operators offerings with recharge cards at specified amounts where customers charge there phone when they want to and use the service when they want to and are not pressured by contracts or bills. Prepaid has seriously changed the face of mobile billing and payment and in a lot of countries, It is just the way to go for many mobile customers.
