Energy Harvesting: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, 2013 to 2019 a New Research Report Available at

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 20, 2013

Energy Harvesters markets at $ 131.4 million in 2012 are projected to increase to $ 4.2 billion in 2019. Growth is anticipated to be based on demand for micro power generation that can be used to charge thin film batteries. Systems provide clean energy that is good for the environment. Growth is based on global demand for sensors and wireless sensor networks that permit control of systems.

The 2013 study “Energy Harvesting: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, 2013 to 2019 -” has 597 pages, 288 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the Energy Harvesting is used inside telemedicine systems and m-health initiatives as a way to implement ruggedized handset communications for all clinicians.

Advanced storage devices are emerging simultaneously. Storage devices can leverage the power captured by energy harvesting devices. Energy storage technologies of super-capacitors and thin-film batteries have become cost-effective. Energy harvesting devices have attained workable levels of efficiency. There are significant cost reductions. Many applications are related to smarter computing that depends on sensors capturing change in conditions and making adjustments to the environment based on measured change.

Existing energy harvesting and storage applications include vibration-based wireless train measuring systems, wireless sensors distributed city wide to implement smart cities, oil field monitoring systems, windup laptops for use in remote regions, and wireless light switches for use in smart buildings. Wireless sensors are self-powering. They can be used to alert and monitor a range of environments and incidents, pollution and forest fires, robberies in a city, temperature in a building, and movement around a border fence.

Energy harvesting technologies include electrodynamics, photovoltaics, piezoelectrics, and thermovoltaics. Photovoltaic systems for solar energy are evolving at a slower pace. The energy harvesting and energy storage market factors implement light harvesting for small devices.

Technological developments in the fields of low-power electronics and energy storage systems have allowed energy harvesting to become an increasingly viable technology. It is alternatively referred to as energy scavenging and power harvesting. Energy harvesting technology has become sophisticated and efficient.

According to the study, “Converting ambient energy to useable electrical energy harvesting (EH) systems ( is a useful and compelling technology. The technologies offer an inexpensive and compact way to power portable electrical devices initially and to create stores of power in the long term.”

Electronics tends to rely heavily on batteries. EH technology powers an increasing number of consumer and industrial products that are untethered or need to become disconnected from electrical outlets. As initial projects succeed and prove their worth, the technology is set to proliferate.

At some point energy harvester markets will shift from simple growth to rapid growth measured as a penetration analysis. This will happen as markets move beyond the early adopter stage. Eventually energy harvesters will be used as fuel to power batteries for electronic devices and smart phones. The energy is manufactured from vibration and thermal differentiation that is ambient in the environment. Energy harvesters have become more feasible as the technology evolves.

Afilias Secures Millions of Internet Domains From BIND 9 Vulnerability with DNS Diversity Strategy

Dublin, Ireland (Vocus) July 31, 2009

Afilias, a global provider of Internet infrastructure services, today announced that its DNS network, which supports approximately 10 percent of the Internet's domain names, is secure from the recently announced BIND 9 vulnerability that could cause a denial of service (DoS) attack against DNS name servers. Afilias' network and customers are protected by its DNS diversity strategy, which avoids single points of failure like sole reliance on a single DNS resolution software such as BIND.

"Afilias has a fundamental security strategy in place across our DNS operations that integrates diversity at every layer of our infrastructure. Most critical to this strategy is ensuring diversity in DNS software," said Ram Mohan, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. "An organization can build bigger hardware or expand its geographic footprint, but by running a single type DNS software, whether open source or proprietary, they will always be completely vulnerable to zero day exploits like the one revealed this week with BIND."

Afilias' DNS network runs both BIND and NSD, two popular, proven and open source DNS resolution software brands. Running both software products synchronously ensures that Afilias can simply remove one from production while it is patched or upgraded, ensuring seamless DNS resolution and 100 percent uptime. The same cannot be said of systems using a single flavor of software, whether open source or proprietary.

The BIND security vulnerability announced by ISC on July 28th, enables an attacker to send a specially crafted Dynamic Update request that can crash a DNS name server. All organizations running BIND 9 are required to upgrade their version to 9.4.3-P3, 9.5.1-P3 or 9.6.1-P1. Afilias has already upgraded its version of BIND.

"Afilias supports large scale domains like .INFO and .ORG as well as our Managed DNS business, and serves billions of queries daily. Our DNS diversity strategy ensures that our network was never in jeopardy, and that the 15 million domain names we are responsible for were always accessible online," add Mohan.

Afilias has also published a new white paper entitled "5 Dimensions of Diversity: A Winning Strategy for Securing your DNS" which details its guidelines for how organizations can deploy diversity in their DNS networks to improve their security and reliability. The white paper can be downloaded at:

About BIND

Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is the industry standard software for domain name resolution services. In active service for over 20 years, BIND has survived the rapid expansion of the Internet and become more widely deployed than any other DNS software. As open-source software, unlike proprietary solutions, its code has been scrutinized, tested and battle-hardened by hundreds or thousands of programmers over the years.

About Afilias

Afilias is a global provider of Internet infrastructure services that connect people to their data. Afilias' reliable, secure, scalable, and globally available technology supports a wide range of applications including Internet domain registry services, Managed DNS, and services in the RFID and supply chain market with its Afilias Discovery Services.

TSANet, the Worlds Largest Multi Vendor Support Network, Launches New Website and Social Media Strategy

Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) October 09, 2012

The Technical Support Alliance Network (TSANet) is a not-for-profit company made up of international software and hardware companies, including Microsoft, EMC, Oracle, Citrix and Red Hat. TSANet facilitates multi vendor support between members, allowing one technology company a direct path to technical support professionals at another member company to collaborate on issues affecting customers they share.

Over 500 member companies rely on TSANet to provide the legal framework, online portals and policies that make it easy for businesses to provide multi vendor support with other companies. The new website and social media strategy was developed to help new and existing members get the most from TSANet.

Dennis Smeltzer, President of TSANet, explained that, Most of our members are very familiar with accessing the TSANet database to contact other members technical support teams. But over the years, many of our members have innovated creative ways to use our database and collaborative support framework. We want all our members to get the most out of TSANet by taking advantage of these innovations and by having a forum for sharing new ideas.

The innovations Dennis mentions include creating custom groups, which allow members to use the TSANet framework to create alliances with one or a few other companies. These small groups provide more flexibility by allowing group members to contact a higher level of support or creating a higher expectation for service. For instance, a group of companies could create a custom group where all members are required to coordinate on a customer issue within a set amount of time.

According to Dennis, The primary benefit of custom groups is that they give members much more control over a multi vendor relationship, and the ability to scale that relationship to as few or as many companies as they chose.

TSANet also wants members to know about benefits, like encrypted URLs, that allow technical support specialists one-click access to the TSANet database without having to enter a user name or password.

Because many new benefits are pioneered by members, or by TSANet staff on behalf of members, TSANet needed a blog and social media platform that allowed them to share these innovations by providing a platform for members to share their thoughts and best practices.

Paul Esch, Director of Strategy and Business Development at TSANet, explains that, The new TSANet website was developed under the guidance of our marketing committee, which is made up of employees from our member organizations. This allowed us to really understand what our members needed and to meet those needs with our new website, blog and social media program.

The website and social media program will also support TSANets growth strategy by boosting awareness of the organization among technology companies in industries such as telecommunications and cloud computing.

The TSANet social media program includes a LinkedIn Group for members and a Twitter account to communicate best practices and industry news. The blog is separated into three topics consisting of TSANet news, industry topics and member topics with content focused on multi vendor support best practices. Follow TSANet on Twitter @TSANetTweet. Members can join the LinkedIn group at

About TSANet

Founded in 1993, TSANet (Technical Support Alliance Network) is a worldwide not-for-profit alliance.
