LTE Advanced: A Quick Look at Releases 10 to 12

Emerging trends such as social networking, cloud computing and storage, and video sharing, together with mobile computing will continue to put an enormous pressure on the cellular infrastructure. It is anticipated that at least a 30 fold increase in capacity, as well as additional services that will enhance the user experience, are required to make it all work. The LTE-A advanced project was initiated to meet this increasing traffic demand.

Computing in the Cloud: A Practical Review

Cloud computing appears simple but is very complex. The apparent simplicity has caused many organizations to move to cloud computing somewhat blindly, driven largely by promises of simplification which will result in cost savings, or just sheer cost savings. Cost savings alone is often enough cause for celebration. And, interestingly, the results achieved by those organizations who “just go for it” are, unexpectedly, usually very positive.

Root Cause Failure Analysis: Reducing Costs and Increasing Customer Satisfaction

Your people say it’s inherent to the product, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Production continues and so do the failures. You get to watch a sizeable chunk of your profits continue to move from the production line to the scrap bin.
