DEMO 07- Enabling technologies have their day, too

Tuesday's afternoon sessions at Demo 07 in the US offered up an instructive look behind the scenes at the enabling technologies that will drive high tech's future capabilities.

Jasper Wireless looks at the intersection of global economies and the proliferation of intelligent machines and offers an international platform for connecting and managing networks, systems and mobile devices worldwide.

"One hundred and ten million machines now have the power to talk to one another," said Daniel Collins, CTO at Jasper.

What devices or machines talk about over carriers is not up to Jasper, rather its technology focuses on making the connections and delivering the content.

A centralized management console will allow managers to view a single dashboard no matter where in the world the devices or machines are located. Using the console a manager could deactivate a connected machine from thousands of miles away.

Jasper is a mobile provider with coverage in 35 countries.

Bringing it back home to the desktop Propel Software offers up a refreshingly easy to understand and practical technology.

The company's Personal Bandwidth Management [PBM] technology, dubbed Propel PBM, brings QoS [Quality of Service] to the desktop.

The problem it solves is focused on the rising tide of connected applications, such as Web 2.0 apps, SaaS, video, and gaming over the network. All of these applications are vying for the same limited bandwidth on the desktop.

David Murray, president and co-founder, demonstrated the technology by using a VoIP connection while simultaneously uploading a very large file. Without Propel PBM the VoIP connection was extremely poor and only by disabling the upload was the VoIP connection improved.

Murray ran the same demonstration after invoking Propel PBM and both the upload and the VoIP connection worked seamlessly.
