NS1 Innovation in DDI Bolsters Performance, Efficiency, and Security for Enterprise Networking

NS1’s software-defined Enterprise DDI provides the automation, traffic steering, and security capabilities required by modern infrastructure, replacing inflexible, appliance-based technologies.

NS1, the leader in modern application and access networking, today announced continued innovation that bolsters performance, efficiency, and security for enterprise DNS, DHCP, and IP address management (DDI).

Organizations across all verticals are racing to address the escalating demand for pervasive, secure, and resilient digital connections and superior user experiences. This has created a heightened sense of urgency for IT modernization and driven companies to evaluate the foundational infrastructure that supports increasingly complex and distributed IT environments. To replace brittle, appliance-based technologies, they are turning to NS1 Enterprise DDI, the first software-defined DDI solution capable of delivering the scalability, elasticity, security, performance, and resilience required by modern infrastructure.

Following its recent $40 million Series D funding round, NS1 is doubling down on engineering and product innovation. The solution now provides

On Semi’s Motor Development Kit Prioritizes Energy Efficiency

Design engineers love development kits, for a bunch of reasons. One, they enjoy seeing how things work and the kits expose the technology. Two, they like to tinker with the boards and see if they can get the board to do what it’s intended to do, as well as some things that it may not have been intended to do. And three, it gives them a nice head start on the development path.

The latter reason is generally why the vendors produce these boards—the sooner they can get their customers into production, the sooner those customers will put in an order for lots of ICs.

On Semi is no different in its thinking, and it recently put out a few boards aimed at motor-control applications. Such boards are usually well received, partly because they straddle the line between electrical and mechanical engineering, an area where engineers of either discipline can

Advance could enable artificial intelligence on household appliances while enhancing data security and energy efficiency — ScienceDaily

Deep learning is everywhere. This branch of artificial intelligence curates your social media and serves your Google search results. Soon, deep learning could also check your vitals or set your thermostat. MIT researchers have developed a system that could bring deep learning neural networks to new — and much smaller — places, like the tiny computer chips in wearable medical devices, household appliances, and the 250 billion other objects that constitute the “internet of things” (IoT).

The system, called MCUNet, designs compact neural networks that deliver unprecedented speed and accuracy for deep learning on IoT devices, despite limited memory and processing power. The technology could facilitate the expansion of the IoT universe while saving energy and improving data security.

The research will be presented at next month’s Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems. The lead author is Ji Lin, a PhD student in Song Han’s lab in MIT’s Department of
