A Quiet Company Targets The Defense & Military Market With Disruptive Technology

It’s always fascinating to hear about companies that are redefining the rules and changing the game, however here’s a short review of how a technology-based company with breakthrough solutions, put it all together.

The Setting

Intilop, a specialist in Network Acceleration and Network Security products made a strategic decision to target the Aerospace and Defense & Military Markets.

Intilop focuses on Ultra-Low latency and Hyper Performance Complex Networking Protocol Accelerators, with emphasis on full TCP, UDP, ARP and IGMP & other Mega IP Cores, Sub Systems and Solutions.

It was clear that the timing was right to introduce this technology to Defense Contractors and other Industry players that could utilize this high-performance technology in the development and deployment of their complex networking systems.

Applications Mix
This technology has been applied to a range of customer projects (cross-Industry lines) including:
-more than 60 high-speed trading firms co-located with NASDAQ, NYSE and other world stock exchanges, delivering a million FIX and other financial transactions per second
-image transfer applications in Semiconductor Inspection Equipment handling large multi-gigabyte image files needing to be transferred in real-time
-image transfer applications in TeleMedicine Server Systems where large multi-megabyte image files need to be transferred live and in real-time
-ground stations supporting Satellite systems distributing data and images live to an active, complex network.

Current Picture

The company had traction with notable Defense Contractors like Northrop Grumman, IBM, L-3, Telspan and others, which validated the Strategic direction.

The Spade Work

Core research was conducted to identify key segments and application areas that were a “best fit” opportunity for the company’s technology base.

This also had to be calibrated to fit the company’s expertise and raw organizational, financial and resource capabilities.

Being an early-stage company, it could not sustain long selling cycles (18-24 months) or enter a Market area that provided serious barriers of entry or strong competitive influences.

Not an easy challenge.

The Output

Given the nature of the technology, the target area of focus revolved around Network Communications for large volumes of data, complex data sets, bottlenecks, etc.

In 2013, much of world (and I) were smitten with the award-winning movie ‘Her’. It was a rather entertaining movie; one that featured the lead actor, Joaquin Phoenix, falling in love with – wait for it – a computer system powered by Artificial Intelligence! So deep and moving was the man-machine love story that it raised the question – exactly how smart have the machines become? Turns out, quite a lot.

Chatbots first made an appearance in 1966. She was called ELIZA. (Yes, the bot was not only christened but also given a pronoun).

With today’s technological advancement, there is a race against time for classroom teachers to avail of the power of technology in delivering knowledge and all to their learners. If some of them are not adept at using technology in the classroom, chances are learners are in disadvantaged in learning against the ones who have been learning through the aid of technology.

This is why, during summer, teachers are trained to become knowledgeable in using technology in the classroom. In fact, just recently, selected teachers harnessed their skills in using Microsoft Mix, Sway, Prezi, to mention just a few.

Power banks have become an important lifeline today. The modern phones as we know them have become so powerful and this is true with each launch. The consumption of power has also increased. Companies add features and there are so many apps that will use up your power. This takes a toll on the battery too. There are some features that actually use your power even when the phone is not being used. With this in mind, a private charger is a very important thing in our lives today.

Even with the demands that are made on our phones on a daily basis and the battery requirements, most phone companies keep on going for the slimmer smartphones.

The only constant in the world of tech is obsolescence. Every new gadget, every new version of it, becomes dated the minute it is out. R&D and innovation are the buzzwords today.

That is, in fact, a good thing. With every new invention, ways of working and communicating are getting simpler, faster and easier. Take smartphones, for instance. Wouldn’t you agree that they have taken over a large portion of the work done primarily by laptops and desktops? Information is available at your fingertips, on the go.You no longer have to be stuck to your desk.

Technology is probably one of the best creations human beings have ever made. Not only is technology able to connect people but also gives us exposure to sights, sounds, and feelings that we haven’t experienced in our lifetimes.

As per Wikipedia, Virtual reality (VR) typically refers to computer technologies that use virtual reality headsets to generate the realistic images, sounds and other sensations that replicate a real environment or create an imaginary setting.

Though VR is still relatively new to the public, there are already a lot of different ways to enjoy VR.

In recent times, block chain technology redefined the Internet and led to the emergence of a new type of internet where digital information is distributed without copying. The technology was conceived and devised primarily for crypto currencies, digital currencies like the Bit-coin. In contemporary times, bit-coin is referred to as the digital gold and the total value of this currency is close to about 9 billion US dollars.
