Telecom expert, PowerNet Global, partners with Abydos Innovations, start-up electronics company with a cause

CINCINNATI, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PowerNet Global, veteran of the telecommunications industry for more than 20 years and well known for strong business ethics, integrity, and reliability, announced a new partnership with electronics company, Abydos Innovations, LLC, that will include bringing tablets to their customer base, as well as offering a number of programs that work to put tablets into the hands of disadvantaged youth.

"We saw an opportunity to be part of the mobile device revolution and help the community at the same time, so we were instantly interested in forming a partnership with Abydos to allow us to sell tablets and contribute to their tablet programs," said Bernie Stevens, president and CEO of PowerNet Global. "We're excited to offer our clients such high quality tablets at such affordable prices and help level the playing field in education by helping get more tablets into more hands."

A developer of innovative electronic devices that enrich lives, Abydos Innovations, LLC was founded on the desire to give every child the opportunity to receive the best education possible, regardless of family income. Offering both affordable and high-end model tablets and accessories to meet the needs of every business and consumer, through Abydos' Love Your Neighbor Tablet Program, a portion of every tablet purchase contributes to the organization's charitable programs that donate tablets to families in need of a little extra help. The program ensures that every child has the same access to advanced technologies for their education.

As Abydos' service partner, PowerNet Global shares the same passion to bring a greater education to more children and provides the Wi-Fi and telecom services associated with some of the Abydos tablet programs. Celebrating more than 20 years as a leader in the industry and achievement as a multi-award winning company, PowerNet Global is a premier telecommunications provider, serving voice, data, SIP, and managed solutions to thousands of commercial and residential customers nationwide.

"We're very excited to have PowerNet Global as our biggest supporter and partner in our vision for tablets in the education ecosystem," said Rick Human, newly-appointed president of Abydos Innovations. "We're also thrilled to be able to offer tablets that allow people of all income ranges to have access to mobile devices and also offer high quality models that rival the biggest brand names in the tablet market for less. The biggest thing that makes us different from our competitors is that not only do we offer a great tablet, but every tablet purchase from Abydos helps children in need."

Offering a new line of tablets under the Abydos name, the company is now accepting orders for its first tablet in their line and tablet accessories through their online store at www.abydosinnovations.com. Their full line of tablets is expected to be launched in early 2013.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
