Over the last decade, commercial satellite technology has evolved to consistently provide communications for emergency response, disaster recovery, military and commercial applications.
Cisco’s Internet Routing In Space (IRIS) solution is revolutionizing the satellite communication industry by bringing the networking capabilities of Cisco IOS Software to space.
Based on growth, innovation and market leadership, Frost & Sullivan has presented the 2012 Global Technology Innovation Award in the Global Satellite Transponder Market to Cisco. The Technology Innovation Award is a prestigious recognition of Cisco’s accomplishments in the satellite industry.
According to Frost & Sullivan, “Cisco’s IRIS solution allows satellite operators to better compete in the greater communications industry landscape by offering standardized IP protocols to the satellite market.”
While Cisco offers Advanced Services to assist customers with network planning, optimization and operations, Cisco is not a service provider that provisions communication services for end users. Cisco has transitioned operations for production service of the IRIS capabilities on board the Intelsat IS-14 satellite to TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. TCS provides OS-IRIS managed satellite services for government and commercial customer use, allowing organizations to reach multiple continents from a single connection to TCS’ network infrastructure.
With International Women’s Day passing last week, Cisco was extremely proud to have our very own Karen McFadzen, Vice President Asia Pacific, Greater China, Japan named as the Bronze Winner of the 2012 ‘Sustaining Women’s Empowerment in Communities and Organisations’ award. Karen has been recognised for her constant hard work and organisational initiatives to achieve gender diversity at the executive level in Cisco Technical Services Team. She was able to do this not just in Australia but also throughout the Asia Pacific region.
The SWECO award is an initiative of the Australian Centre for Leadership For Women and recognises individuals who have developed a sustainable initiative to empower women in a community or organisation (see full press release here).
I recently began working on a toolset to aid with analyzing binary protocols and I decided to use it as an exercise to get more familiar with the Immunity Debugger. I have been using Windbg for a while now, however, I was constantly reading articles discussing how great Immunity Debugger is for exploit development and I had been meaning to take the time to become more familiar with it.
