O sulfeto de polifenileno (PPS -- polyphenylene sulfide) é uma resina altamente resistente ao calor, que é caracterizada como um plástico de alta engenharia. Ele exibe excelente retardação à chama, propriedade mecânica, estabilidade dimensional e resistência química. Para atender às necessidades do mercado, particularmente no setor automotivo, temos feito esforços para desenvolver novos graus de PPS altamente carregados, de alta tenacidade, com resistência a choques térmicos muito melhorada. Anteriormente, não era fácil melhorar a resistência a choques térmicos de um material de PPS e, ao mesmo tempo, manter as demais propriedades equilibradas. Em primeiro lugar, graus convencionais com maior resistência a choques térmicos geram grandes quantidades de depósito de mofo, causado por gases que se originam do modificador de impacto. E a maior frequência da manutenção do mofo no metal era um problema. Em segundo lugar, a tendência de reduzir a espessura e o peso do produto resultou em maior necessidade de materiais com fluxibilidade mais alta. Entretanto, aumentar a fluxibilidade e melhorar a tenacidade para dar resistência a choques térmicos normalmente produz efeitos conflitantes e era difícil atingir as duas coisas ao mesmo tempo. Agora, a Polyplastics desenvolveu os novos graus 6150T73 e 6150T8 do DURAFIDE PPS que resolveram os problemas mencionados acima. O DURAFIDE PPS 6150T8 exibe alta fluxibilidade e maior resistência a choque térmico, enquanto o DURAFIDE PPS 6150T73 se beneficia de resistência a choque térmico ainda maior. Além disso, os dois graus demonstram características de baixa liberação de gases (pouco depósito de mofo). Esses novos materiais devem impulsionar a produtividade dos clientes do setor automotivo e também de uma grande variedade de campos, ao ajudar a aumentar a liberdade para projetar o produto, ao mesmo tempo que reduz a frequência da manutenção de mofo no metal. A Polyplastics não é apenas uma desenvolvedora de tecnologia de materiais; ela também está ativamente envolvida no desenvolvimento de tecnologias de moldagem e processamento. Além das tecnologias de materiais mencionadas acima, temos o objetivo de oferecer novas soluções que combinem tecnologias de moldagem e processamento. DURAFIDE (R) é uma marca comercial registrada da Polyplastics Co., Ltd. no Japão e em outros países. To view the original version on PR Newswire, visit:

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Apr 26, 2017) - A Brocade ( : BRCD) divulgou hoje um novo Estudo de Habilidades de Transformação Digital Global, que teve por objetivo revelar como os líderes mundiais de IT acham como eles e suas equipes estão posicionados para atender as demandas comerciais atuais e futuras. Dos seis mercados pesquisados, a Alemanha foi a mais bem preparada para atender as metas de transformação digital, seguida de perto dos EUA, mas o Reino Unido ficou bem para trás. A pesquisa, que contou com 630 líderes de IT nos EUA, Reino Unido, França, Alemanha, Austrália e Cingapura, indica que muitas organizações estão no ponto da virada, pois as demandas da nova tecnologia devem esgotar o suprimento de habilidades. As organizações que estão abordando isso agora com o treinamento de habilidades adicionais serão as mais bem posicionadas para garantir o crescimento da empresa e das vantagens competitivas. No geral, 91 por cento dos líderes globais de IT reconhecem que os departamentos de IT são reconhecidos como muito importantes ou essenciais para a inovação e o crescimento dos negócios. No entanto, mais da metade (54 por cento) prevê dificuldades futuras com a falta de talentos de IT em 12 meses. Os fatores contribuintes identificados pela pesquisa são: falta de habilidades, prevalência de habilidades desatualizadas, ausência de compromisso para com o treinamento a nível de diretoria, e o ambiente em rápida mudança da tecnologia. "As empresas estão chegando ao pico da influência estratégica de IT. Agora é o momento que as equipes de IT acham ter as maiores oportunidades para influenciar a transformação nas organizações", disse Christine Heckart, diretor de marketing e vice-presidente de ecossistemas, Brocade. No entanto, com a rápida mudança do cenário da tecnologia e o impacto potencial nos mercados de trabalho internacionais, é essencial que IT receba o treinamento certo para aprofundar o desenvolvimento das habilidades e relevância dos negócios". A pesquisa também revelou que o planejamento de habilidades deve estar alinhado com outras áreas do planejamento dos negócios para evitar o risco de déficit de habilidades de tecnologia, onde as equipes de IT tenham que entregar os benefícios das tecnologias com as quais elas não estão preparadas para implementar. As organizações estão tentando afastar os departamentos de IT das suas funções tradicionais, mas a falta de habilidades e o tempo necessário para o aprendizado das habilidades prejudicam o processo. Os tomadores de decisões de IT (ITDM) acreditam que isto poderá vir a ser um grande contribuinte para a incapacidade do atendimento das demandas das empresas, colocando as organizações em risco de ficarem para trás dos concorrentes e perderem os clientes. O cenário político também é um fator contribuinte para o aumento da falta de habilidades. Com a intensificação da incerteza no mercado nos próximos anos, é cada vez mais importante que os departamentos de IT continuem ágeis e aproveitem as novas tecnologias. O treinamento continua sendo um problema com a prioridade das tarefas de manutenção diárias de IT. Para que as organizações possam abordar o déficit de habilidades técnicas, primeiro é necessário que elas invistam tempo e dinheiro -- ou enfrentem as consequências. Profissionais de IT precisam tomar as rédeas do seu futuro profissional A pesquisa também revelou que os profissionais de IT de todos os níveis devem ter maior responsabilidade pelo seu destino profissional, utilizar as oportunidades das novas tecnologias como a inteligência artificial (artificial intelligence - AI) e todas as áreas de IoT, desde à gestão até à segurança. AI pode revolucionar as habilidades de IT necessárias e a forma como trabalhamos. AI provavelmente irá substituir várias funções e tarefas de IT, mas isto não significa o fim para o departamento de IT. Os funcionários precisam ter as habilidades certas para trabalhar com AI e aproveitarem seu impacto futuro para que as organizações possam liberar todo o seu potencial. Função vital do conselho na garantia do desenvolvimento de habilidades de IT a longo prazo Os conselhos das empresas normalmente determinam se os funcionários têm tempo e capacidade para desenvolver habilidades, mas isto é comum nas organizações que não têm o suporte adequado. Os conselhos também deve garantir que a melhoria das habilidades e do treinamento estejam alinhadas com outras áreas do planejamento dos negócios. Os dados no estudo também identificam quatro personalidades principais dos líderes globais de IT, todas com níveis diferentes de eficácia em termos de apresentação de projetos de transformação digital e de gestão de habilidades das suas equipes. Brocade A Brocade(R) ( : BRCD) ajudam as principais empresas do mundo a transformar suas redes em plataformas para a inovação dos negócios. Com soluções que vão desde os data centers público e privado até a ponta da rede, a Brocade é líder da indústria na sua transição para as infraestruturas de rede Novo IP necessárias para a era de negócios digitais da atualidade.

The present invention relates to systems and methods for last mile optimization for the transmission of real-time data. Pseudo-packets are sent to a last mile optimizer located at each of several best servers. The last mile optimizers provide feedback regarding jitter, latency and packet loss of the pseudo-packets to determine quality of service for each of the servers. The server with the best quality of service is selected as the single best server. A plurality of transporter algorithms may then be applied to pseudo-packets that are then sent to the single best server, and the quality of service for each transporter algorithm is subsequently measured for effectiveness. The transporter algorithms that are shown to be effective are combined together for the actual transmission of real-time data. Continuous monitoring of transmission quality allows for utilizing backup pathways upon detection of a problem, and negotiation of preferred transporter algorithms.

The present invention relates to systems and methods for best server selection for real-time data transmission are provided. The systems and methods include an access controller, and an application which receives information of a selection of several best servers with which to transmit real-time packets to. The application sends a request to the access controller for server information before call initiation. The access controller identifies servers with the same ISP, and then selects a regional server within this group of same ISP servers. Subsequently the geo optimizer identifies servers closest to the application from among the regional servers. The respective loads of each of the closest servers are analyzed to select only servers that are likely to provide satisfactory quality of service. A monitor within the central IDC is able to measure load conditions of each server and provide this load information to the access controller.

A method, apparatus, and computer-readable medium for leveraging real-time sales volume for conducting group buys comprising initializing a sale of an item, the sale specifying a current price of the item which is calculated based on a current sales volume of the item and sales volume ranges, processing transactions with users for items at a purchase price equal to the current price when a purchase request is received from the corresponding user, terminating the sale of the item at a closing price when the current sales volume has reached a threshold or when a period of time has passed since the sale was initialized, and crediting accounts belonging to one or more users with an additional amount based at least in part on a difference between the closing price and the purchase price for each item for the corresponding user.

Systems and methods for improving quality of a call over network (CON) are provided. Modules may be distributed over the network at nodes. The modules monitor data quantity through the node, and data quality from one node to another. This fidelity and usage data is provided to a server where the data may be utilized to decide on how to route a call over network. The selected pathway may be decided based upon avoidance of problem legs where packets have historically been lost, or based upon the desire to load level data transmissions. A signal indicator for the signal quality of the networks last mile may be provided to the user. The last mile is the portion of the data pathway dependent upon the telephone service providers infrastructure that cannot be rerouted around.

The present invention relates to systems and methods for network labeling in order to enhance real time data transfers. A network for a real time data transfer is identified and predictive models for network performance are compared against to determine if the network is suitable for the data transfer. If so, then the real time data transfer may be completed as expected. However, if the network is predicted to be unsuitable for transmission an alternate means for connection may be suggested. The alternate suggestion may include delaying the data transfer until the network is expected to be in better conditions, connecting to another access point in the network, or switching to another network entirely. During the data transfer, the quality of the network is monitored in order to update the predictive models for the networks quality. Identifiers for the network may be utilized to keep track of the networks. Network signal strength, signal pollution and time may also be tracked in order to identify patterns in the networks performance.

The present invention relates to systems and methods for improving transmission of voice packets over a network are provided. The systems and methods include a few central internet data centers (IDCs) which include a routing controller and an access controller. The system also includes a number of edge IDCs. Each edge IDC includes a last mile optimizer and a relay server. The last mile optimizer operates along with an application located on the users devices and the access controller in the central IDCs to identify the best edge server for the particular device to connect to. The edge servers continually monitor pathway performance once the call is in progress. If an error is detected, then the server may automatically transition to back-up pathways rapidly to minimize call performance disruption.
