LLMs on Commodity Hardware: What,
Where, Why AI PCs Are Already Here

By: Brian Case, Mark Cummings, Ph.D.

Generative AI (GenAI) Large Language Models (LLMs) can run with okay single-user performance on today’s notebook computers. This has very important implications. First, it promises to give individual users a great increase in personal power for both good and for bad. Second, it foreshadows a world where GenAI is everywhere and in everything including routers, switches, home controllers, industrial systems, the electrical grid, water systems, etc. Given all the press about Nvidia’s very expensive specialized chips that companies are fighting to buy, this assertion may be a little surprising…

Now Affordable: Managing the Tasks
You've Dreamed of in Telco/IT Networks

By: Piotr Wierzcholski, Tymoteusz Wrona

How many times have you come to the conclusion that deep analysis of the quality of service and potential problems in telecommunications/IT services could help make service delivery more efficient, flexible, better tailored to customer requirements, and less expensive for the customer and the communication services provider (CSP)? How often have you noted that the effects of failures and their impact on service delivery levels could have been avoided in a simple but, unfortunately, labor-intensive way? Why is the execution of a customer's order for a new service not carried out on the spot, and why do we not introduce services for a specific date and time, and a specific period? The labor-intensive nature of the activities and the need for appropriately qualified employees from multiple technology domains who could implement the desired changes can cause such projects to be abandoned…

Law Enforcement Agency Enhances
Connectivity with NaaS

By: Larry Thompson

As technology consultants for municipalities, we try not to spend too much time talking about technology. Throw around jargon like “network as-a-service” (NaaS) or “edge,” and you can watch your clients’ eyes glaze over. Buzzwords don’t interest them. They care about benefits, costs, impact on operations. Sometimes though, the jargon signifies something genuinely new and worth exploring. Take the NaaS solution we recently implemented for one of our most important municipal clients in rural South Carolina…
