Due to the rising awareness of environmental friendliness, more and more people are taking metro transportations such as subway and mass rapid transit as their primary commuting option. As people are spending more time on trains, and, with the popularity of smart mobile devices, they would like to maximize their time efficiency during their traveling time. Therefore, managements of rolling stock organizations are taking onboard Wi-Fi service into consideration. Regarding signal reliability and rolling stock environment, the most convenient solution is to implement an onboard gateway with wireless network connectivity and processing capability rather than installing a local Wi-Fi network or a satellite-based system. The onboard gateway will act as the Wi-Fi hot spot, so that passengers will have the access while spending time in the trains.
Practical implementations of Lanner's technology in a range of environments and applications.
The trend of cloud computing presents an opportunity to replace physical CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) with virtualized, software-defined CPE in order to establish flexible branch-to-cloud connections. Over the past few years in the industry, many enterprises have implemented virtual branch network by focusing on virtualized network services. In other words, virtual machines are replacing physical equipments to assure branch network connectivity while saving hardware costs. Therefore, enterprises today are seeking a reliable yet compact gateway solution that help them optimize and monitor their cloud connectivity between enterprise centers and branches.
IT managers in charge of administering network services for most of today’s multi-location businesses are expected to fulfill rules and levels of authentication based on the types of network services demanded by the local offices or transnational branches. These conventional network infrastructures, more often than not, are intended for delivering services that require almost no flexibility or scalability, which in turn making deploying new services over such wide area and long distance networks a costly and time-consuming task.
Driver fatigue is accounted as one of the most prevalent causes of traffic accidents, especially with heavy-duty vehicles such as mining trucks, excavators, bulldozers, cranes, cargo trucks and commercial buses. Drivers of these vehicle types can experience long-hour shifts and may fall into asleep at wheels temporarily in a “doze” mode when hit with fatigue or drowsiness. In fact, there are reports indicating that 1 out of 6 fatal accidents is caused by drowsiness or fatigue. Therefore, owners of heavy-duty service vehicles are searching for in-vehicle solutions that can detect the level of driver condition to lower down the accident rates and damage costs.
Internet usage continues to rapidly expand and evolve, and with it network infrastructure is changing and evolving. The use of general-purpose processors to provide network functionality has changed the face of the networking market and dramatically reduced costs for enterprises and telecom service providers. For the most part, these general-purpose servers have kept pace with Internet application usage. Network traffic, however, has increased dramatically with new applications that have extensive data plane requirements. Traffic has multiplied to a point where specialized technology is needed to keep up.
To reduce carbon emission, renewable energy has become one of the most discussed subjects regarding utilities. Among these, solar energy is the most anticipated source of renewable energy. In fact, many countries have already implemented solar PV plants in communities, commercial areas and industrial zones.
