BearCom Opens Network Operations Center to Offer Continuous Monitoring of Customer Communications Systems


Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 19, 2013

BearCom, a nationwide provider of wireless communications equipment and solutions, today announced the opening of its Network Operations Center (NOC), which can alert BearCom’s enterprise customers to problems with their digital communications systems and help them optimize those systems for maximum efficiency.

“Wireless communications systems are vital to the safe operation of all kinds of business and governmental organizations,” said BearCom President & CEO Jerry Denham. “These systems can not only save money, they can save lives.” Denham added, “It was with this in mind that we created our new Network Operations Center to monitor our customers’ systems.”

Modern two-way radios rely on base stations and repeaters to relay voice communications from one radio to the others. If these pieces of the infrastructure develop problems, the operation of the entire system can be compromised. In a typical on-site service call, a technician connects a computer to the system and uses special software to conduct an assessment.

“With the NOC, we can offer what we call Constant Service Presence to detect any issues, evaluate problems, and even dispatch technicians if that’s warranted,” Denham said. “We’re already using Constant Service Presence to help monitor systems we’ve built for customers who look to us for two-way radio rentals, and we look forward to offering this unique service to more of our customers around the country.” The BearCom NOC can monitor customers’ Motorola MOTOTRBO systems around the clock and provide system diagnostics, real-time visibility, and proactive response to any issues that arise. Alarms are transmitted by e-mail for resolution, which can be accomplished by BearCom or by technicians on-site.

“Using the NOC allows us to collect metrics on such things as repeater health, network latency, and channel efficiencies,” said Ian Torok, Director of Technical Services at BearCom. “Not only can we detect problems, the NOC gives us the visibility to optimize systems in a way that maximizes efficiency.”

Torok noted that to open the NOC, BearCom invested not just in the software that assists in the monitoring, but in augmenting the company’s own information technology infrastructure to make certain that a secure network connection is always available. “The most important benefit of our new Network Operations Center is the peace of mind it will give our customers,” he said. “They no longer have to determine outages and report them. We know about any problems, and we know about them early. Since these kinds of issues typically escalate over time, it’s important to be made aware of them as soon as they arise.”

Constant Service Presence can be added to BearCom’s existing services or arranged along with dispatched repair services as part of a service-level agreement.

About BearCom

BearCom provides a broad line of high-performance wireless communications products, services, and complete mobility solutions. Founded in 1981, BearCom is America's only nationwide dealer and integrator of wireless communications equipment, serves customers from 26 branch offices located throughout the U.S., has several affiliated offices around the world, and employs approximately 400 people. BearCom is headquartered in the Dallas, Texas area. For more information, visit http://www.BearCom.com.

New IP Litigation Boutique, Kroub, Silbersher & Kolmykov PLLC, Opens in New York

New York, N.Y. (PRWEB) December 06, 2013

A new high-end intellectual property boutique law firm, Kroub, Silbersher & Kolmykov PLLC, launched operations today. Located in New York City, and founded by Gaston Kroub, Zachary Silbersher and Sergey Kolmykov, the firm will focus on providing quality patent and other intellectual property litigation and counseling services, while offering a unique and flexible fee structure.

Messrs. Kroub, Silbersher and Kolmykov are launching the new firm after practicing together in the intellectual property department of the New York office of a highly-regarded international law firm. They intend to fill a growing demand in the market from both patent-holders and accused infringers for smart, effective legal representation at predictable costs and with attentive service.

According to Mr. Silbersher, “Flexible cost structure is a key ingredient to our new firm’s business model, which will include flat monthly fees along with contingency and hybrid fee arrangements.”

Mr. Kolmykov continued, “We’ve each practiced on patent litigation teams where, along with one or two other attorneys, we essentially ran the case. We realized that we can offer the same focused service, but with a lean nimble team that cuts out the make-work and unnecessary work.”

“If we need to scale up or down, we can do that as the case requires,” Mr. Kroub added. “Patent litigation is generally an expensive endeavor for companies, but we know from our experiences at large firms how to offer the same service at more reasonable prices.”

The firm will focus on representing both patent-holders and accused infringers in litigation. On the plaintiff-side, the firm intends to leverage its deep networks within the patent-monetization community among patent-assertion entities, inventors and investors. In particular, it intends to offer customized services to inventors seeking to monetize their patents. Mr. Silbersher stated, “There is a growing chorus of inventors who do not view themselves as trolls, but rather as seeking fair compensation from larger companies that are illegally making money off their ideas. We intend to service that demand.”

On the defense-side, the firm brings substantial experience to the table in both competitor cases and in defending those brought by non-practicing entities (NPEs). “Many of these companies lack in-house patent counsel. They require a higher-level of responsiveness and advice from their attorneys. Our business model is set up to cater to that demand," said Mr. Kolmykov.

With more than thirty-years of collective experience, the members of Kroub, Silbersher & Kolmykov have acted on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants, through both trials and appeals, in patent litigations throughout the country, including extensive experience in the ITC as well as within each of the districts that see the most patent cases, including the Eastern District of Texas, the Eastern District of Virginia, the District of Delaware, the Central District of Florida and the Northern District of California, among others.

Prior to founding, Kroub, Silbersher & Kolmykov PLLC, Gaston Kroub was a partner at a highly-regarded international law firm in New York, which he joined in 2011 after nearly a decade in the New York office of another leading international law firm. While at his prior firms, Mr. Kroub litigated a wide variety of patent and other intellectual property cases, across a number of technical disciplines. He was recently selected for inclusion by Superlawyers Magazine's NY-Metro Edition for Intellectual Property Litigation, after previously being recognized on the list of "Rising Stars" for Intellectual Property Litigation by that same publication. A frequent speaker and author on intellectual property topics, Mr. Kroub is on the Executive Committee of the New York State Bar Association's IP Section, where he co-chairs the Greentech Committee.

Zachary Silbersher previously practiced patent litigation and prosecution at a premiere national law firm and Morgan & Finnegan LLP before that. Prior to that, he practiced general commercial and civil litigation for several years before returning to school and earning a BS in Physics from Columbia University with the intent of pursuing patent litigation. He has experience with all facets of patent litigation, patent monetization, multi-defendant case representation, re-examinations, licensing and pre-litigation counseling.

Sergey Kolmykov started his career as a patent agent in 1999 at the New York offices of premiere national law firms, including Morgan & Finnegan. With an electrical engineering degree from Cornell University, Mr. Kolmykov has represented clients in matters involving a wide variety of technologies, including wireless telecommunications, digital and analog circuits, error control coding, video and audio compression, computer software and hardware, semiconductors, internet applications, networking, e-commerce and financial systems. Mr. Kolmykov has broad experience in licensing of intellectual property and was involved in analyzing multi-party licensing agreements, and evaluating patents for inclusion in certain multi-party licensing programs, including various licensing programs for standardized technologies. As counsel, Mr. Kolmykov successfully led numerous patent litigations, both on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants in the District Courts and the International Trade Commission.

Todays Growing Need for Animators in the Gaming Industry Opens Up Many Job Opportunities for Animation Students


(PRWEB) June 21, 2013

In todays job market it can be difficult to find a position within the arts and design sector.

However, the current need for animators in the gaming industry is on the rise which provides many opportunities for those in an animation program. Centre for Arts and Technology's 2D and 3D Animation programs can help those looking to break into the animation world by teaching them the essential traits and skills required in the animation industry.

The gaming world is constantly changing from 2D pixelated animation to high definition graphics and 3D animation, its hard to believe that the gaming world started out with putting a quarter into an arcade machine.

Now, the animation and actual game play in the gaming world has become very complex. World of Warcraft, a RPG (role playing game), revolutionized the standards for animation in games as well as the difficulty of play. This game was one of the first that used an online system of play and had top of the line graphics never before seen in the gaming world. With the push from World of Warcraft, more games came into the world as online based and used high definition 3D animation. Many of these games include The Sims 3, Star Craft 2 and Cid Myers later Civilization games. Gaming has progressed so much that players go to international gaming competitions for specific games, such as Star Craft 2, and compete for 1st place to receive $ 50,000 in prize money.

The gaming industry is continuously getting larger and the need for animators in this industry is at an all-time high. In Canada especially, the gaming world is booming. Canada has come out with some of the most popular games of 2012 including, Mass Effects 3, Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, and Sleeping Dogs. A major Canadian company producing games is Ubisoft Montreal, which creates the Assassins Creed franchise and the Far Cry series. With this need for more animation experts, the industry is calling for trained professionals to take on the daunting task, and where better to be trained than at an animation school.

Centre for Arts and Technology offers 2D Animation & Digital Art or 3D Animation for Game, Film & Visual Effects at our Kelowna, Fredericton and Halifax campuses.

With the gaming boom in Canada, now is the best time to take that next step into the future!

AgePower differs from incubators or accelerators in that its focus is on transforming the future of aging and providing real-life test environments, along with access to business and invention experts in key areas necessary to fueling a successful new venture.

Aging represents a global innovation opportunity. Today 900 million people in the world are over age 60. By 2050 that number will have grown to 2.4 billion. As World Health Organization Director-General Margaret Chan says, Being in the older age group is becoming the new normal for the worlds population. Its not just the sheer size of those numbers, but these demographic realities impact every aspect of living. The new normal of a rapidly aging world needs new solutions.

Society has long looked at aging as a challenge, but it is one of the worlds great innovation opportunities, said Kathryn Roberts, President and CEO of Ecumen. From better coordinating health care services, to enhancing social connections, to making life easier and more fun, we believe the nexus of people and technology can open the door to new possibilities that improve lives and use resources better.

Ernest Grumbles, a MOJO Agitator and one its co-founders, noted that the aging demographic tidal wave is going to drive technology change at high speed.

The AgePower Submission Process

AgePower will take submissions until Oct. 31 at agepower.org. A joint Ecumen and MOJO committee will select up to four technologies/companies to receive a six-month field trial among Ecumen clients, residents and employees. In addition, finalists will gain access to the expertise of leading business advisors, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors, engineers and others who comprise MOJO Minnesota.

This combination is designed to help expedite a move to market either through a companys own investment, outside investment, acquisition by an investor or other means. In return, Ecumen and MOJO will receive a small equity stake to align interests with the tech innovators for market success and dispersion of new, life-enhancing technologies.

Test environments will include in-home settings, assisted living communities, Ecumen sites providing Alzheimers and dementia care, and clinical settings with short-term physical rehabilitation services and/or more intensive long-term care.

Think Big Partners Opens Application Window for First Think Big Accelerator Class


Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) June 14, 2012

Kansas City-based startup accelerator Think Big Partners has opened the application window for its first-ever Think Big Accelerator class, a 14-week program that will aid tech-focused, early-stage startups and entrepreneurs in launching a business faster, stronger and smarter this September.

With a team made up of entrepreneurs, mentors, investors and founders of startup companies, Think Big Partners accelerator program combines lessons and observations from other successful programs across the nation to create a model that allows experienced and budding entrepreneurs to build new startups. Think Big Accelerator sets itself apart, however, by allowing these entrepreneurs to maintain life outside of their businesses while participating in the program.

We have studied, observed and finally created our own accelerator model that we think will work better for entrepreneurs who want to remain dedicated to their families and other obligations while still participating in the program, says Herb Sih, co-founder and managing partner of Think Big Partners.

In order to facilitate this idea, the first class of Think Big Accelerator allows entrepreneurs to arrive ready to work on Monday and leave on Thursday night during the 14-week program. This model will let traveling entrepreneurs return home on the weekends to spend time with family and manage other responsibilities.

We have studied what can be done in a short period of time in the startup world, says Tyler Prochnow, co-founder and senior partner at Think Big Partners. After studying the success that startups have in sprint programs like Startup Weekend, Startup Bus and hackathons, we created Think Big Accelerators model for the fast-paced, highly-focused entrepreneur.

We are amazed at what can be done in a short amount of time, says Sih. With important milestones and deadlines in place, we believe that the entrepreneur participating in Think Big Accelerator will be able to maintain a work-life balance and recognize the opportunity to reenergize, refresh, refocus and reflect at the end of each week by connecting with family when returning home. Its a contrary belief, but we think that stepping away from a business actually allows entrepreneurs to work smarter, faster.

Entrepreneurs accepted into the program will receive what Sih refers to as rockstar treatment while building their businesses in Kansas City. Think Big Accelerator has assembled the ingredients for participating entrepreneurs to come to Kansas City and work on their businesses comfortably. The accelerator will provide custom-tailored key elements for the entrepreneur such as real estate, essential service providers, dry-cleaning, restaurant specials, living arrangements, technology, office space and more. Kansas City businesses interested in providing discounted services for Think Big Accelerator entrepreneurs are encouraged to contact Think Big Partners at (816) 842-5244.

In addition, those accepted into the accelerator program will partake in field trips to many Kansas City locations for inspiration, education, collaboration and ideation.

Think Big Accelerator is looking for five to ten technology-based startups (especially businesses with a focus in consumer-facing services, software, web services, apps, etc.) to participate in the program. Entrepreneurs will participate in the 14-week program Monday-Thursday with the goal of building a successful startup and finally pitching to investors at the end of the program on two separate demo daysone traditional, and one utilizing a state-of-the-art technology.

C4L Opens Doors to New 100% Green Bournemouth Data Centre

(PRWEB) June 06, 2012

Data centre and connectivity services provider C4L today announced the opening of its newly upgraded Bournemouth data centre. The site provides 5,000 square feet of space, able to house 180 racks of IT equipment. The data centre itself is certified as being 100% powered by green energy, as well as using additional techniques to further reduce its energy usage. As a result, C4L can ascertain that its data centre is producing the lowest possible amount of carbon emissions as well as providing IT resources for potentially hundreds of businesses.

In the 21st century, everything is at a premium, said Matt Hawkins, MD of C4L. From finances to space, computing power, expertise and energy: IT departments must use each of these to its fullest potential in order to succeed. Our Bournemouth data centre helps them to do just that. Technology can be colocated here, reducing capital expenditure and maintenance costs whilst freeing up physical space in organisations own premises. At the same time, everyday maintenance and management is carried out on-site meaning that IT staff can concentrate on the issues that really matter, such as performance and security. By combining our efficient power usage with a data centres economy of scale and 100% green energy, organisations can be sure that their technology is using the minimum of power and is responsible for the minimum of carbon emissions.

C4Ls data centre is certified as using 100% green energy, provided through EDF. By avoiding traditional fossil fuels and instead using sources such as renewables, C4L is ensuring that its data centre is responsible for the minimum amount of carbon emissions for its size. At the same time the data centre itself uses techniques such as a cold aisle cooling containment and CRAC units with multiple stages of cooling, to make sure that it is using the minimum amount of power: this further reduces both emissions and energy costs. As a result, the data centre is to a great extent future-proofed against potential carbon emissions legislation.

Customers can choose multiple, full, half or quarter racks from the 180 in the data centre, allowing the site to cater for businesses of all sizes and needs. It connects directly to C4Ls own private fibre network, meaning that users will receive high-speed connections, low latency and high resiliency when accessing their IT services. Its power and cooling systems have full redundancy built in, so that the data centre can keep operating even in the event of a problem with one or both systems. In addition it has full smoke and fire detection and fire suppression systems to protect customers valuable IT resources. These resources are also under tight physical security: a biometric entry system with a man trap, PIN code swipe cards, digital CCTV and on-site security all ensure that the data centre is under constant guard.

Traditionally, London has been seen as the Mecca of data centres thanks to its central location and high levels of internet connectivity, continued Matt Hawkins. However, thanks to controlling our own fibre line we can offer customers in our Bournemouth data centre the same level of connectivity and service that they would expect in the capital, without paying a London premium for the privilege. As the UKs communications infrastructure improves, we can expect to see more and more data centres develop across the nation. For our part C4L is proud to be driving data centre development in the South of England, providing a business boost for the region whilst also ensuring that we arent adding to the areas carbon economy as well as its financial economy.
