Unlocking the promise of a connected world through edge cloud computing

Published on IT ProPortal (September 6th, 2017)

How can we transform billions of connected devices from a security challenge to a global opportunity?

Internet of Things has started to impact every aspect of our daily lives. Our appliances, cars, gadgets, communication devices, tools, and even some of our clothing have become nodes on the internet. By 2020, as many as 50 billion devices will be connected so there will be skyrocketing growth of traffic generated by devices at the edge of the network posing a monumental challenge to our networks and central cloud computing. Thankfully, we can take advantage of the ever-increasing computing capabilities of edge devices to turn them into cloud servers and extend central-cloud capabilities to the edge. Edge cloud to central cloud is like WiFi to Cellular Communication. Just as WiFi carries most of the global wireless traffic today, edge devices will soon manage most of the cloud computing burden.

mimik technology at the international CES 2015

mimik at the International Consumer Electronics Show

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, December 23rd 2014—mimik technology is introducing its patented software platform to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 6-9, 2015.

The CES is the world’s premier gathering place for consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for more than 40 years and the global stage where innovations are introduced to the marketplace.

mimik President and CEO, Siavash Alamouti — an industry leader known for his contributions in technology— will attend the CES.  “We are very excited to be at CES 2015 to introduce mimik and our software solutions that improve consumer experience with digital devices and content.”

“We have music, video, photos, and files spread across many devices that don’t talk to each other”, Mr. Alamouti states. “This has been creating a fragmented and poor user experience and will get even worse when all our other gadgets become connected to the Internet in the future. mimik software empowers people to easily access, share, and control all their digital assets from any device and any place, privately and securely”.

mimik’s patented technology enables service providers to cost-effectively deliver personalized services such as media entertainment, TV, and communications to any connected device or screen, connected from anywhere in the world. The mimik system introduces a flexible liquid-cloud architecture that allows its solutions to be ported onto a combination of cloud servers, set-top boxes, gateways, or even HDMI dongles without costly infrastructure build out.

Mr. Alamouti continues, “Our mission is to liberate consumers from the fragmented world of networks, OS, devices, TV subscriptions, monitoring, and home-automation systems, etc. and to empower them to control everything centrally and intuitively. We have developed a multi-screen and cross-platform solution that makes the consumer’s life a lot easier. We have a truly unique and winning technology that is sure to impress our guests at CES in January.”.
