The Spanish Private Security Act sets different corporate security degrees or levels. Level 1 has the lowest requirements, while Level 4 corresponds to businesses or locations considered critical from a security point of view. Starting at Level 2, having a connection to an alarm monitoring center is considered mandatory (this applies to both private residences and small businesses), but it is at Level 3 where legal requirements become far more stringent. This category is reserved to locations with moderate to high risk exposure (such as financial institutions, art galleries, antique shops, jewelries, gas stations, lottery outlets, casinos, gambling halls and other locations were cash is stored or handled).
The concept of reactive programming is currently thriving. It consists of dealing with asynchronous data flows called streams. One of the libraries to offer this concept is ReactiveX, which spans multiple programming languages and takes the best ideas from functional programming and the Observer and Iterator patterns.
The goal is to achieve an easily scalable responsive application.
2018 has shown us that many of the predictions made at the beginning of last year by relevant consultants and market analysts related to Cloud technology, SD-WAN, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and more, can be acknowledged today as correct predictions…. Indeed, we can also say that some predictions have been slightly slower than were expected and others have even gone beyond their initial expectations for 2018. The latter can definitely be said of SD-WAN.
Once again, we come to the end of another year in which Teldat has been able to reach many of the milestones that it had originally set itself. SD-WAN is now a total market and corporate reality. Not only have we had decisive projects in the SD-WAN area, but important market research companies have also positioned us as a leading provider in the global SD-WAN field – see this on our Home page. Obviously, apart from the relevance this has from a business perspective, we are very proud to have reached this position.
Some days ago, I had the chance to go to the annual SD-WAN Summit, an event that has been held in Paris for the last 3 years. It is a great opportunity to learn about state-of-the-art solutions and share trends on wide-area network connectivity, since key industry players were present: manufacturers, carriers, analysts, researchers, and large companies with ambitious communication requirements. Attendance figures show that the event has quickly become the main meeting point to discuss SD-WAN technologies (i.e., more than 450 participants from 31 countries attended the 2017 edition).
