1st Patented Mobile Vampire Proof Charger Starts Kickstarter Campaign During SXSW!

Currently one of the Top 4 Most Popular projects on Kickstarter in the Technology category and almost 50% funded in Just 2 Days!

An Austin start-up company, Vampire Labs, has solved Vampire Energy Loss in the most ubiquitous of products – mobile devices. The Vampire Proof™ Mobile Charger is a breakthrough in smart charging as current mobile chargers (phone, tablet, etc.) continue to suck energy off the grid when they are left plugged in and disconnected from your mobile device – this is known as Vampire Energy Loss. Just think about the energy waste impact for the billions of chargers that are plugged in all over the world; this energy waste affects all of us – extremely bad for the environment causing extra CO2 production. So, to sum it up: Vampire Energy Loss Sucks!

With the Kickstarter campaign, Vampire Labs is unveiling a simple and sleek, 2-USB port Vampire Proof smart charger that will stop wasted energy. This campaign will enable Vampire Labs to manufacture Vampire Proof chargers on a larger scale. In turn, your pledge will empower you to stop Vampire Energy Loss with the Vampire Proof charger – saving money and decreasing our footprint. Saving global energy that is otherwise wasted is just smart.

Vampire Labs is offering a great pre-order Kickstarter prices starting at $25.00. The link to the Kickstarter page is: http://kck.st/1hT43a3

nGen VidCom LLC Announces High Speed Video Service to Nigeria through a Strategic Alliance

nGen VidCom LLC, a global leader in converged video and collaborations services, today announced a new, strategic alliance with Vision Telecommunications Technologies Nigeria, a leading telecommunications hardware and services company, to bring a high speed video collaboration gateway from Nigeria to North America.

Under the terms of this multi-year alliance, Vision Telecommunications Technologies will offer its customers GlobalMeetLive (GML), a cloud-based video collaboration solution to its new and existing customers and channel partners.

“All businesses rely upon web based collaboration to conduct business in this rapidly changing economy. “nGen’s GML solution combines collaboration, true video conferencing and large scale streaming all within a single service” said Tom Clark, CEO of nGen VidCom LLC. “Our alliance with Vision Telecommunications Technologies Nigeria will allow both firms to provide full converged video collaboration communications with no latency or loss of quality between the continents”.

GlobalMeetLive is nGen’s cloud-based converged cloud based collaboration solution that replaces existing collaboration services by combining HD Video Conferencing, web Collaboration and interactive streaming in one solution.

New Talari WAN Virtualization Solution Aimed At Reducing WAN Costs For Mid-Sized Enterprises With Up To 24 Remote Sites

Talari Networks™ has announced the addition of the Mercury T750 appliance to its family of Adaptive Private Networking (APN) products for WAN Network Virtualization. Aimed at mid-sized enterprises with up to 24 remote sites, the T750 provides business-class (99.99 percent or greater) reliability & predictable performance by using inexpensive public WAN links. As a result, enterprise WAN customers gain 30 to 100 times the bandwidth per dollar; can reduce monthly WAN service costs by 40 percent to 90 percent, and have greater reliability and application performance predictability than existing private WANs that use single-provider Frame Relay or MPLS services.

The T750 is designed for deployment in the data center for enterprises with up to 24 remote offices or within larger deployments with regional data centers or colocation facilities. It works in concert with Talari’s T730 appliances deployed at branch office sites, Talari’s T200 appliances deployed in small office / home office locations, and Talari’s T3000 appliances at larger data centers.

The T750 is a 1U rack-mountable appliance that supports WAN bandwidth aggregation up to 120 Mbps downstream / 60 Mbps upstream even while doing 128-bit AES encryption. It runs the same APN software as the existing T3000 data center appliances but in a smaller form factor and at lower cost.

T750 specs include:

* 9 User configurable GE ports
* 2 Bypass port pairs
* 1 Management interface
* High-Availability configuration with 2 units
* Solid state disk

“Many enterprises that have deployed WAN Optimization solutions are now looking for the next technology to further improve application delivery and to reduce costs,” said Michael Kennedy, principal at Network Strategy Partners. “For these and other enterprises, Talari’s technology is the logical next step, as it enables enterprises to inexpensively add bandwidth, reliability and application predictability for all applications, including real-time applications, such as VoIP and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

“For years, enterprise IT managers have been dependent exclusively on expensive Frame Relay or MPLS circuits for their four nines reliability, even though public Internet connectivity has been widely available at a fraction of the cost,” said Andrew Gottlieb, founder and CEO of Talari Networks. “Talari’s innovative approach and technology combines multiple sources of public Internet bandwidth in parallel to deliver the same, or better, quality than expensive WAN bandwidth, enabling enterprises to reduce WAN expenses by up to 90 percent.”

Daisy Confirms North East Presence With Acquisition Site Remaining Open

Daisy Group will now have a permanent base in the North East after confirming its BNS acquisition site, based in Prudhoe, will remain open.

Daisy Confirms North East Presence With Acquisition Site Remaining Open

A leading provider of integrated voice and data services to the small-medium business market, Daisy now adds Northumberland to its business centres in Lancashire, London and the Midlands.

After the acquisition of BNS in February, interim managing director Chris Jagusz, was appointed to ensure business as usual continued in the North East. Following a successful few months and a full review of the business by Daisy, it has been confirmed the BNS site is key to future growth of the Daisy Group with the office remaining operational.

“Before making any decisions about the future of the company and eventual integration we were committed to fully understanding the BNS business,” said Chief Operating Officer Gareth Kirkwood.

“We believe there is a strong business here and we have realised greater synergies than expected, with a cost effective operation in North East.“We have been continually impressed by the quality and enthusiasm of the people at BNS and I am pleased to say that we really do see Prudhoe as being a key part of the Daisy growth story going forward.”

At the time of the acquisition, Daisy’s 29th to date, BNS was recognised by the management team as a well run business.

“With a large base of existing network customers and access to data and IP telephony products, I am convinced that BNS’ product offering will enhance Daisy’s portfolio in its target market of small-medium businesses,” said Kirkwood.

Chris Jagusz, interim MD, added: “As the group anticipates future growth it is important the business has the capabilities in place to support those plans. With the recognised skills within the BNS team and expertise to make more products available to small-medium business customers, it makes absolute sense to retain our presence in the North East.”
