Telit Wireless Solutions, a leading global provider of high-quality
machine-to-machine (M2M) modules and services, has announced that
SimpliSafe’s self-install home security system employs Telit modules to
enable cellular connectivity. SimpliSafe uses the Telit 910 family to
provide coverage on both CDMA and GSM networks for complete nationwide
The cellular module is embedded in the system’s plug-and-play base
station, which monitors and controls up to 41 wireless sensors. It
utilizes the same cellular technology as a cell phone and instantly
sends alarm alerts to SimpliSafe whenever their security system is
triggered, so SimpliSafe customers don’t need to depend on a landline
connection to get 24/7 protection of their homes.
Burglars often smash keypads so that the police don’t get alerted.
SimpliSafe’s cellular module is hidden in its discreet base station,
which stays quiet until it alerts the monitoring service. Then it blasts
SimpliSafe offers its optional professional monitoring for $14.99/month
without contracts. This service has typically only been available at
monthly rates of $42 or higher with a mandatory contract. Cellular
modules are typically an expensive premium add-on for most security
systems. Telit’s low-cost, high-quality modules enable SimpliSafe to
include this advanced feature in every system, at no additional cost to
In addition to being a low-cost solution, SimpliSafe’s DIY installation
takes as little as 15 minutes. Because all the components are wireless
and pre-programmed, there is no need to drill holes or run wires.
Notebooks or smartphones can be used to monitor the home environment and
also to arm or disarm the system.
“CNET said that if you want comprehensive, easy-to-use security system,
you’ll have a hard time finding a better option at a better price than
SimpliSafe. I can’t top that,” said CEO Chad Laurans. “We believe being
safe should be simple. We don’t do fear tactics, we don’t do contracts.
It’s just easy-to-use, 21st century security that really works.”
“So many home security systems are stuck using the same old technology
as 25 years ago,” said Mike Ueland, President of Telit Americas.
“SimpliSafe is taking advantage of new, disruptive technology to create
a better, smarter security system. Telit is thrilled to be delivering
the communications functionality for SimpliSafe’s innovative IoT network”

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...
