Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) were first produced in the U.S. and Japan in 1970. These polymers were used in the manufacture of baby diapers and adult incontinence products due to their high water absorbing and retaining capacity. Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) help keep the skin dry, thereby preventing the spread of infections in diaper users. Demand for these polymers is expected to be high in the near future. There are two types of superabsorbent polymers (SAP): sodium polyacrylate and polyacrylamide copolymer. Both these polymers are used in the manufacture of diapers and various hygiene products in the market. The market for superabsorbent polymers (SAP) is anticipated to grow significantly due to increasing demand for hygiene products.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable.

"Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
