East Tennessee State University Partners With CASE Parking, Streetline to Transform Campus Parking

University Parkers to Benefit From Seamless Integration With Blackboard Mobile App for Occupancy and Way-Finding Data

IRVINE, CA and JOHNSON CITY, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- CASE Parking, a parking data solutions provider, today announced the completion of its largest deployment to date at East Tennessee State University (ETSU). To deliver cutting-edge technology to the ETSU campus, CASE partnered with Streetline, Inc., a leader in smart parking solutions, in a first-of-its-kind technological collaboration.

CASE Parking collects occupancy data for nine ETSU parking lots, accounting for more than 2,750 parking spaces across the 366-acre campus. This comprehensive collection of real-time data and incomparable integration of technology benefits university parkers, and the clustered system deployment has proven noteworthy by enabling would-be parkers to make informed decisions from multiple parking lot options to determine which will best meet their immediate parking needs.

"East Tennessee State University is a forward-thinking and environmentally aware institution," says Karen King, vice provost of ETSU. "By providing real-time access to parking data, we hope to do our part in reducing vehicle emissions and increasing our students' quality of life. We couldn't be more pleased with the collaboration and the superior results we've seen so far."

"CASE Parking's collaboration with Streetline and Blackboard represents the first collaboration of its kind," says Sebastian E. Gutierrez, CASE Parking president and CEO. "By feeding our data into Streetline's superior applications and integrating this technology with the renowned Blackboard Mosaic platform, we've provided an instantaneous and easily accessible campus-wide deployment for the ETSU parkers."

"We are excited to work with these revered organizations that are so respected in their fields," says Mosaic Product Manager, Alex Ackerman Greenberg. "This is a one-of-a-kind collaboration, and we're pleased to have been a part of it as well as having been able to serve the ETSU campus community."

For this project, Streetline took its award-winning smartphone app, Parker™, and developed an icon to sit within ETSU's campus life and services mobile app, powered by Blackboard Mosaic. The icon launches the Parker app to enable campus parkers to see how many available parking spaces are on campus and provide them with directions to the selected parking spot.

On the backend, Streetline's data management tool, ParkEdge, allows ETSU to upload location and policy data for the campus' parking facilities, which is then fed into the Parker app. If rates or policy changes throughout the year or for special events, ParkEdge allows for easy update and management of variable data. In addition, real-time parking lot occupancy data is captured and fed into Parker via CASE Parking's proprietary Counts in the Cloud™ technology -- launched to market in 2013 to empower parking operators' collection of invaluable car-count data. The result of this technology integration is a one-click solution for students, visitors and would-be parkers to access comprehensive parking data from anywhere.

"Streetline is thrilled to see ETSU leading the way in adopting open, mobile & cloud technologies to make the campus more sustainable, while at the same time providing an enhanced experience for students," added Kurt Buecheler, SVP Business Development and Channel Partners at Streetline.

The mobile application, made possible through the Blackboard platform and Streetline technology, is available for both Android and iOS users through Google Play and the Apple store.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
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.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
