Webinar - Asset Lifecycle Management: A Key Component of a Service Provider's Supply Chain

Posted by Melissa Huntley on Dec 1, 2016 4:53:40 PM

Asset Lifecycle Management, when done properly, is a critical component of an overall Supply Chain Management practice. Management Data Systems International (MDSI) and Fulcrum Technologies - developers of the CATS ALM Software solution - present best practices to allow you to manage complex supply chain and inventory management issues for both forward and reverse logistics, optimizing your CAPEX and OPEX expenditures. Powerful, flexible, intelligent mobile scanning solutions let you scan, track, and get visibility of your assets. From there, we overlay information gathered from integrated systems including MDSi’s Acuity Solution and other financial, engineering, supply chain, OSS, or BSS applications to achieve true, real-time business intelligence to make meaningful decisions. This information can then be used for reports, dashboards, and controls to provide both insight and verifiable data to drive to strategies and corporate initiatives.

5G is Coming- How are Carriers Bracing for it?

Posted by Melissa Huntley on Nov 29, 2016 9:00:00 AM

2020 is now the set forecast for the 5G revolution to come to life in the United States. How are Mobile Carriers Gearing up for the big launch? One recent carriers acquisition in October 2016 is already planning for the 5G innovation. With the acquisition of Time Warner by AT&T, there will be even more direct accessibility for small cell towers and cellular map coverage. According to Gartner, the advantage of the merger would also mean greater ability to address urgency for consumer related, cloud based content distribution, which would be across not only 5G, but Wi-Fi and LTE as well.

Happy Thanksgiving From MDSi

Posted by Melissa Huntley on Nov 22, 2016 11:30:00 AM

At our headquarters in Alpharetta, GA, MDSi employees gathered to celebrate Thanksgiving this week. As part of our family culture, MDSi values it's employees spending time with each other as well as with family and friends throughout this holiday season. This year employees feasted on Cue barbecue (It's a local thing) followed by pumpkin pie, and other decilious desserts. While discussing upcoming holiday plans, family life, and of course football games, employees gathered around to break bread together.  It is always nice to sit down and share a meal with some co-workers that you don't see every day, and learn more about them. We hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving, full of relaxation and family time.

Posted by Melissa Huntley on Nov 8, 2016 10:04:20 AM

We all remember when 3G came out and that changed the way phones were utilized.  Then, in 2009, 4G was all of the new hype, first rolling out in parts of Europe, and then across the globe.  Everyone loved the faster service that 4G provided, especially since consumers had migrated to smart phones and access to mobile internet was core. Like the next new available car model, 5G is now the next "big thing", so what's it all about?
