Like any service organization, museums are looking for innovative ways to gain insight in consumption patterns, to better optimize resources and to improve the guest experience.
The Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) solution helps organizations use their network as a platform, to derive analytics that can be used to better understand how guests with mobile devices use and interact with a venue. These types of insight can allow venues like museums to optimize their operations and deliver a better experience to their guests.

I had the pleasure of visiting this vibrant island country while we were filming this video. The Republic of Malta sits in the Mediterranean south of Sicily and north of Libya, a strategic crossroads with a visible history that dates back to thousands of years BC. Some of the oldest standing temples in Malta pre-date the Egyptian Pyramids by a millennium.
What a joy, then, to experience the thoroughly modern nation that Malta has become, thanks in part to the vision of the telecommunications provider Melita. The name Melita itself reflects the long history of the country – thought to derive from an ancient Greek word for “honey-sweet”, reflecting a unique species of bees that are found in Malta.

I have discussed in the past the increasing importance of Smallcells in a Service Providers access strategy (Bringing LTE Indoors and Cost Optimised Indoor Coverage), but to truly leverage Smallcells once deployed in an optimal way is not a trivial task. Normally the Smallcell supplier is different to the Macro network and often a different mix of technologies (e.g in the case of Wi-Fi) and frequency bands are involved. The term Heterogeneous, meaning “diverse in character or content” (oxforddictionaries.com), is indeed fitting. So what is the right approach to building an optimal Heterogeneous Network or HetNet?
The guiding principle must be the consideration of end user Quality of Experience (QoE). Read More »

As consumers and workers seamlessly move from home, to the office, the subway, coffee shops, and everything in between, they expect a seamless connectivity between their mobile, Wi-Fi, and broadband experience. It makes sense that the policy for their data use will also be seamless across all technologies, thus providing the user with a more customized experience.
NTT Docomo recently announced that they will Read More »

I put a Zubie in my car today. I really wish that NPR’s “Car Talk” radio program was still on the air, so I could call in and say that sentence to Tom (sadly, deceased this week) and Ray Magliozzi, aka the “Click and Clack Brothers.” They’d have a lot fun with that.
After seeing so many interesting connected transportation solutions from Cisco and others at the recent ITS World Congress in Detroit, I felt inspired to get my own car connected! Zubie is one of a several available apps and services that allow you to “manage” your car from a mobile app, e.g., perform a car “health check,” see how well you drive, create geofences to track your car, for example, when your newly-licensed teenage child borrows it for the night.
