Application of AI to computer networks and devices communicating in the human body to be shown at Sigcomm 2018

By Anasia D’mello

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Data Communication (Sigcomm) announced highlights of Sigcomm 2018, its annual flagship conference, which will be held this year in Budapest, Hungary from August 20-25. The six-day conference is considered the leading venue on the applications, technologies, architectures and protocols for wired and wireless networks.

Communication networks and their underlying infrastructure have fueled the digital revolution of the last 25 years and will serve as a linchpin in our interconnected world in the years ahead. Sigcomm encompasses all aspects of networks and networked systems, including packet processing, hardware and software, virtualisation, mobility, sensors, energy consumption, novel applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to networking, and usability of underlying networking technologies.

Jennifer Rexford of Princeton University will receive the Sigcomm 2018 Award for Lifetime Contribution and deliver the conference keynote address. In addition to the main conference, Sigcomm 2018 will include 44 posters, 22 demos, 12 workshops, 13 industrial demos, a Student Research Competition, community feedback sessions, topic preview, mentoring sessions and award ceremonies.

“Many members of our Sigcomm 2018 Organising Committee have worked hard to ensure that the attendees will leave Budapest with invigorating memories of innovations presented in the technical program as well as natural beauty and cultural sophistication of the Hungarian capital” said general co-chair Sergey Gorinsky of IMDEA Networks Institute.

“The main conference is held in the legendary Vigadó Concert Hall, the workshops and tutorials in the nearby InterContinental Hotel, and the hackathon in Nokia Skypark. The distinctive social events include the reception coinciding with spectacular fireworks on the Danube, Student Dinner in the Bálna (Whale) Building, and Banquet as a cruise on Európa Ship.”

“In planning Sigcomm ’18, we wanted authors to be daring and emphasize novelty and creativity,” said Sigcomm 2018 program co-chair Dina Katabi. Added program co-chair Mark Handley, “we believe that the criteria for being accepted by Sigcomm should not merely be that the paper is very well executed. We should also be seeking out new ideas that bring a different perspective and allow the conference to evolve and stay in the forefront of innovation.”

This year’s program emphasizes bringing new technologies to computer networks. Some papers optimise the design of networked systems using machine learning, while others enable low-power miniature devices that communicate from inside the human body. The conference also offers two full-day workshops exploring the intersection of machine learning and computer networks.

Fleet management systems installed base in Americas to reach 22mn units by 2022

By Anasia D’mello

According to a new report from the IoT market research provider Berg Insight, the number of active fleet management systems deployed in commercial vehicle fleets in North America was 8.0 million in Q4-2017. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.6%, this number is expected to reach 16.4 million by 2022.

In Latin America, the number of active fleet management systems is expected to increase from 3.0 million in Q4-2017, growing at a CAGR of 13.1 % to reach 5.5 million in 2022. The top-25 vendors in the Americas together have a combined installed base of more than 7 million active units in the region.

Notably, all of the top-15 players each had more than 100,000 active units in the Americas at the end of 2017. More than 40% of the total number of units deployed in the region is represented by the five largest fleet management vendors alone. Verizon has in 2018 launched Verizon Connect which represents the culmination of more than US$5 billion (€4.38 billion)in investments including high-profile acquisitions such as Fleetmatics and Telogis.

Rickard Andersson

“Verizon Connect is the clear provider in the fleet telematics space both from a global perspective and in the Americas specifically”, says Rickard Anderson, principal analyst, Berg Insight. Verizon’s closest competitor in the Americas is Geotab which has grown considerably in the past year, followed by Omnitracs and Trimble which have both surpassed 0.5 million active fleet management subscribers in the region.

“Zonar Systems rounds off the top-5, just ahead of Michelin which has established a strong position in the Americas through multiple acquisitions”, continues Mr. Andersson. He adds that the ongoing consolidation trend in the fleet management space is expected to continue in the coming years.

Numerous vendors have more than half a million active FM subscribers worldwide and the milestone of one million subscriptions has now been surpassed by three leading players, driven by growth strategies based on M&A(merger & acquisition) activity and high-paced organic growth. “Berg Insight anticipates a future scenario where the global fleet management market is dominated by a handful of solution providers with installed bases measured in the millions”, concludes Andersson.
