Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "While we are disappointed with the results, I believe we are still on track to achieve profitability by the end of 2013. I had expected sales to ramp up faster than they have, but for the most part we are operating as anticipated. I am particularly pleased with the fact that we have grown our Network Services backlog to $2M and I fully expect that number will continue to multiply. As we discussed previously, we are essentially in a startup mode and we are operating the Company on that premise. We have the benefit of having an excellent infrastructure including our web building software, which we are utilizing in our University Program. Our telecom products are world class, and we are working to improve our sales processes and infrastructure to increase productivity of our direct sales representatives. We are starting to sign up dealers in our dealer programs and I have high expectations of sales and recurring revenue being derived from that channel. We believe that the dealer program will work as a supplement to our direct sales channel. I am working with our sales management team to continue to improve our training and lead generation. The University Program continues to gain acceptance and we now have three universities teaching on our web builder, with five classes. We expect to have 30 schools and 60 classes on line by the end of 2013 and we also believe there are big opportunities with junior colleges, community colleges, vocational schools, trade schools and high schools, which we will start to address. I have very high expectations of our University Program increasing our brand recognition, leads and cross sell opportunities."
Mihaylo added, "I am very excited by what we are working on. We work on improving our products and services every day. We need to make a few changes to our mobile apps, but when we have that completed, I have expectations that we should be amongst the lowest cost providers in the market with excellent products and services. Our Engineering team continues to add enhancements to our mobile offering and we will enhance our marketing of the product in the summer. We believe this will be a substantial value to our customers and build additional sales. We continue to have very positive feedback from our telecom and web customers and I am convinced that our products and services will be what drive sales, profits and shareholder value. We are watching our expenses very carefully and running a lean and aggressive Company. Our team and I are fully aware of our need to increase shareholder value."

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
