Industry’s Lowest Latency Scores Go to Force10 Networks’ 10 GbE Switch Based on Independent Benchmarking Study

SAN JOSE, Calif. Jan. 26, 2011

Santa Clara, California Click here

Lippis and Ixia staged the comparative 10 GbE switch performance and power test to assist IT business leaders in purchase decisions and product differentiation.

Jim Smith

"Latency is fundamental to assuring a user's excellent experience. With east-west traffic flows making up as much as 80% of data center traffic, low latency requirements are paramount as every trip a packet makes between servers when responding to an end user's query adds delay to the response and reduces the user experience or revenue potential," said Lippis. "Our rigorous testing showed that Force10 has indeed placed great emphasis on minimizing latency as well as power/cooling costs in the construct of its architecture."  

Low Latency, High Performance a Must for Demanding Transactional Environments

In high-frequency trading (HFT), high-performance computing (HPC), and similar performance-sensitive environments, ultra-low-latency 10 GbE switching functionality, high performance and Layer 3 feature richness are critical to handling the huge volumes of bursty network traffic that represents millions of transactions each day.

The S4810 10/40 GbE ToR switch is purpose-built for applications in data center and computing environments that require the highest bandwidth and lowest latency. Leveraging a non-blocking, cut-through switching architecture, the S4810 delivers line-rate Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding capacity wi

Remington Capital Radio Teaches Affiliate Partners How to Get CEOs to Return Voicemail Messages

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Jan. 26, 2011

Tony Parinello Remington Capital Radio

Andy Bogdanoff Remington Capital Radio

Speaking of every sales person's voicemail challenge, Parinello said, "You've got about eight seconds to capture the attention of your customer's top guy with your voice message, and that's a dreadfully long time if you're saying all the wrong stuff."

Parinello went on to say, "Those who go out to acquire business must have the skills, tactics, methodologies and thought process needed to reach by phone the customer's Very Important Top Officer.  I call him Vito," Parinello said. "Vito is the one with the ultimate veto power."

Parinello explained that phone messages must be carefully prepared in advance. "They must be clear, succinct and perfectly targeted so that whoever answers the phone knows there is a reason and a time to call back."

The first rule in creating a winning eight-second sales message, Parinello said, is "to treat whoever picks up the phone as if it were the CEO." Parinello then explained the five statements that must be made within eight seconds to ensure the best chance of a returned call:

  • You must immediately repeat the name of whoever answers the phone.
  • You must then offer a brief pleasantry, such as, "Thanks for taking my call."
  • You must then say why you are calling - that

Ford Accelerates Intelligent Vehicle Research, Creating ‘Talking’ Vehicles to Make Roads Safer

WASHINGTON Jan. 26, 2011

  • Ford is rapidly expanding its commitment to intelligent vehicles that wirelessly talk to each other, warning of potential dangers to enhance safety and flag impending traffic congestion to help improve the environment
  • Intelligent vehicles could potentially help in 81 percent of all police-reported light-vehicle crashes involving unimpaired drivers, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report
  • Ford is building the first-ever prototype intelligent vehicles that will tour the U.S. beginning this spring and will provide additional prototypes for the Department of Transportation's world-first research clinics expected to begin this summer
  • Ford is doubling its intelligent vehicle investment in 2011 and plans a new 20-member task force of scientists and engineers to explore the technology's broader possibilities

Ford is aggressively accelerating its commitment to wirelessly connected intelligent vehicles – known as vehicle-to-vehicle communications – becoming the first automaker to build prototype vehicles for demonstrations across the U.S., doubling its intelligent vehicle investment in 2011 and dedicating even more scientists to developing this technology.

Sue Cischke

An October National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report on the potential safety benefits of vehicle-to-vehicle communications estimates that intelligent vehicles could help in as many as 4,336,000 police-reported, light-vehicle crashes annually, or approximately 81 percent of all light-vehicle crashes involving unimpaired drivers. Experts say intelligent

Fewer Workers Age 60 and Up Postponing Retirement, Finds New CareerBuilder Survey

CHICAGO Jan. 26, 2011 between November 15 and December 2, 2010

More than one-in-four (28 percent) mature workers age 60 plus plan to retire within the next two years, while 27 percent are planning to retire in three to four years, and 18 percent in the next five to six years. Sixteen percent estimate it will be seven years or more before they can stop working, while one-in-ten workers (10 percent) don't think they'll ever be able to retire.

The primary drivers for postponing retirement are financial restraints, as indicated by 65 percent of respondents, and the need for health insurance and other benefits, as indicated by 58 percent of respondents. However, mature workers are staying on board at their companies for a variety of other reasons, including:  

  • Enjoy their job (39 percent)
  • Enjoy where they work (36 percent)
  • Fear retirement may just be boring (26 percent)
  • Enjoy feeling needed (14 percent)

Rosemary Haefner, CareerBuilder's job site for mature workers, offers tips for workers who are facing retirement decisions:

Get the facts –

Consider part-time work –

Leverage your knowledge
