Milpitas-based Dialogic Inc. is gearing up to host a large public demonstration of the power of its mobile communications products and services, such as its Dialogic PowerMedia software. The mobile video demonstration, scheduled to take place May 8 at the CTIA Wireless 2012 event, will showcase popular smartphone and tablet devices connecting to a video conference over a live 4G/LTE network, with “the distinguishing and compelling option” to stream video content into the conference. Dialogic Inc. says the streaming video element of PowerMedia Software readily lends itself to many social, business and vertical market-oriented applications.
Cisco announced Thursday that it plans to acquire network analytics company Truviso for an undisclosed amount, in an effort to help users hone operational efficiencies. Truviso, a Foster City-based, real-time Web analytics software company, will add the capability to analyze streaming data to the Cisco Prime network management platform, the company said in a statement. Cisco plans to integrate the Truviso team into the Cisco Network Management Technology Group. Truviso claims to be able to analyze up to 500,000 data records per second. Cisco plans to close the deal in the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2012, which ends in July.
Milpitas-based Leotek is caught in the middle of a patent feeding-frenzy over LED technology. Leotek, the Milpitas-based unit of Lite-On Technology Corp., recently filled a large order for the tiny city of Pocahontas in Iowa, for replacing all 280 of the city’s streetlamps with semiconductors that turn electricity into light. The old yellowish lamps now shine a brighter white and use about half the electricity, which should let the $190,000 investment pay off within four years. What this all means is, the world is currently undergoing a transformation in lighting as incandescent bulbs, fluorescent tubes, high-pressure sodium lights and even the backlighting of some television sets are gradually replaced by light-emitting diodes. Phone and computer screens, Audi AG's "eyebrow" headlights, and traffic signals all use LEDs. It's become a gold rush for LED makers. It has also spawned patent lawsuits around the globe over inventions that make lights brighter and more economical. In the U.S. alone, multiple states are currently embroiled in patent-infringement lawsuits. Luckily for Milpitas’ Leotek, they’re currently not one of the companies due in the courtroom.
This week, JDSU announced the release of its newest product, PacketInsight, a software-enabled next generation network monitoring solution that pinpoints service-affecting network issues “hundreds of times faster than any competing offering,” at rates approaching 10 gigabits per second. “Reviewing massive amounts of stored network data is often required to identify and resolve network problems. Sifting through terabytes of stored data can often take days. Unlike any other solution available on the market, PacketInsight rapidly ‘rewinds’ to points in time on the network and pinpoints quality impairment issues,” JDSU’s press release explained. JDSU has reportedly already received an order for PacketInsight from a U.S.-based tier 1 network operator.
