Optimization as a service

Johna Till Johnson writes about carried-managed optimization that’s delivered as a service.

“Carrier-managed optimization delivered as a layered service on top of Internet and WAN connectivity is of great interest to IT organizations, despite the fact that it is a pretty recent development (two years ago you’d have been hard-put to find any). The appeal is easy to understand for both sides: carriers get a new way to differentiate from each other in an age of cheap bandwidth; users get optimization without capital investment or a need for skilled staff. As hosted and managed UC also spread, optimization is likely to become part of the package when the provider is a carrier.”

John Morris raises the question of if notebooks can really be too thin.

“Portability is, of course, important and I’m glad the days of lugging six- to seven-pound laptops are long gone. But it reaches a point of diminishing returns. Laptop bags aren’t getting much smaller. But if I have to choose, I can live with a slightly thicker ultraportable that has better performance, longer battery life and more features.”
