We are in the era of the intelligent economy. Customers' growing need for access to product and company information, often in real-time through their smart devices, has become a more critical factor in driving their buying behaviors than in the past. Accordingly, customers insist on businesses anticipating their needs, wants, purchases, and inquiries; a concept known as "Anticipatory Personalization." To close the expanse between customer expectations and experiences, it is critical that businesses provide omnichannel Intelligent Service, with anticipatory personalization, delivered with an intelligent customer service platform (ICSP).

Making The Case For Security Cameras In Schools And Colleges

Cameras in classrooms can deter violence, theft, and bullying—and help police respond to unfolding incidents. At the same time, their presence raises questions about privacy, the nature of learning spaces, and intellectual freedom. eCampus News looks at what it takes to secure classrooms while preserving an institution's primary mission of education.
In 2015, a TV news investigation in Dallas captured disturbing footage of a teacher locking an eight- year-old child with autism in a padded closet, a disciplinary practice apparently employed by several North Texas schools. The outrage that followed paved the way for a new Texas law requiring schools to record all teacher interaction with special-needs students in class at the request of a parent.
The use of video surveillance in K-12 schools and higher education is nothing new, of course. More than 90 percent of educational institutions in the U.S. already use security cameras, according to a 2016 survey by Campus Safety Magazine , with 79 percent planning to install additional camera systems over the next three years. Typically, though, these cameras have been used to monitor public areas, such as parking lots, athletic stadiums, hallways, stairwells, and common areas. The idea of video surveillance in classrooms—epitomized by Texas law SB 507—has gained traction only in recent years.

Five Crucial Questions to Ask and Answer as You Prepare Your Industrial Environments to Take Full Advantage of Today’s Rapidly Expanding Wireless Communications Opportunities.
It’s Time to Call the Wireless Communications Systems in Use in Your Industrial Facilities on the Carpet
Here’s why: When it comes to wireless communications, most industrial environments are three to five years behind the carpeted space. After years of focusing heavily on corporate office and branch WLANs, many organizations are surprised at what they’re finding when they look to leverage today’s advanced mobility tools beyond the carpeted space. They’re discovering that while they’ve been concentrating elsewhere, their industrial wireless communications needs have both substantially grown and radically changed, to the point where existing networks and traditional approaches will no longer support the operational performance that is required to thrive in a changing market.

Choosing The Right Wireless Intrusion And Prevention Policies
Jenne

The need for delivering quality wireless services in hospitality venues like hotels and big convention centers has been increasing. The availability and quality of Wi-Fi service is one of the most mportant factors for business travelers, event organizers, and holidaymakers when making their decisions about hotel booking. Some hoteliers offer free Wi-Fi hotspots in order to attract guests and differentiate their services, while others charge fees for Wi-Fi services. Typically, these hotspots use unsecure open authentication, so network administrators need to separate guest network access from core corporate network. With the presence of many Wi-Fi devices from guests who often run their own personal Wi-Fi hotspot, administrators need the best Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS), one that delivers no false positives for clients and access points. Also, increased emphasis by regulatory bodies like the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and other government agencies on enforcement of laws related to RF jamming are making it crucial for WIPS systems to accurately identify unauthorized rogue devices before initiating air termination on these devices. Recently, there were incidents where the FCC imposed massive fines on organizations for wrongfully terminating personal Wi-Fi hotspots of guests in hospitality venues. This paper gives a quick overview best practices for device classification and policy enforcement while setting up a WIPS system.
