When Will Augmented Reality Reach the Tipping Point?

Konstantinos Karachalios, Managing Director, IEEE Standards Association

Proprietary products deliver competitive differentiation in early stages of technology development. But there comes a point when open, standards-based solutions are necessary to establish the technological foundation on which more innovators can participate at lower cost, toward the goal of growing a richer and more robust market.

Working Toward the Next Generation of Networks

IEEE standards projects aim to advance SDNs

The Institute, 8 December 2014

This article is part of our special issue on software-defined networks, which are networks of equipment that decouple hardware from software and execute the software either in the cloud or in clusters of distributed IT servers.

The IEEE Communications Society met in April with experts from academia and seven leading communications companies to discuss standardization opportunities for software-defined networks. The meeting resulted in the establishment of two research groups and two study groups, which are expected to lead to IEEE Standards Association working groups.
