"These leaders bring a wealth of experience on the complex security and compliance challenges facing specific federal agencies, and their insight will be invaluable as we continue to customize Carpathia cloud solutions to meet these needs."   

Carpathia plans to bolster the FAC team with two additional public sector technology leaders in the coming months, to best address the rising demand for cloud computing solutions in the federal government.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
