Implementing 3D Virtualisation the Challenges

whichplm | June 20, 2019

Following on from his guest post in April, Amnon Shalev, CEO & Founder of Virtuality.Fashion, continues his discussion on 3D this time, collating what we have learnt so far, and applying it to the future of 3D for fashion. Virtuality.Fashion, powered by C-Design, believe in making virtual fashion prototyping effortless, affordable, and accessible to everyone.In the 5 articles we’ve published so far for WhichPLM, we��ve been covering a wide range of technological and application related issues, which impact fashion 3D virtual prototyping implementation. During these 18 months we have noticed how operations integrate 3D virtual prototyping capabilities into their workflow in different ways. As a conclusion it is safe to say that the sell and forget approach that characterized some of the 3D virtualization platforms’ vendors in the past is no longer relevant and new, consultative and project oriented implementation approaches should be considered.To emphasize some of the elements that impact the success of 3D implementations, lets review a few of the internal and external issues and trends as discussed in previous articles.

VMware vCenter Server 6.0 substantially improves performance over previous vCenter Server versions. This paper demonstrates the improved performance in vCenter Server 6.0 compared to vCenter Server 5.5, and shows that vCenter Server with the embedded vPostgres database now performs as well as vCenter Server with an external database, even at vCenter Server’s scale limits. This paper also discusses factors that affect vCenter Server performance and provides best practices for vCenter Server performance.

Evolve IP and Cisco Deepen Partnership to Deliver Evolve Anywhere with Webex

Evolve IP | February 21, 2022

Evolve IP, a leading international service provider of Work Anywhere solutions, announced that it has partnered with Webex, a leading provider of cloud-based collaboration solutions, to develop Evolve IP's new unified communications solution, Evolve Anywhere with Webex. Powered by Cisco, the fully integrated UCaaS solution brings together enterprise-grade calling and cutting-edge features provided by Evolve IP Global Voice with Webex's advanced messaging and meetings capabilities, all within a single app. Evolve Anywhere with Webex was developed to help customers successfully manage the unique business requirements of today's 'new normal'. During the sudden shift to remote work in response to the pandemic, businesses quickly discovered that the meetings and collaboration solutions offered with traditional UCaaS solutions could not adequately support their remote teams. Companies, therefore, started looking for solutions that supported both at home collaboration and more traditional in-office communication needs in a single solution centered around the world-class solutions they already used – like Webex. The average business is using 3.5 different collaboration solutions and most expect users to continue to work away from the office the majority of the time. By embracing Webex as the center of the employee experience and providing superior voice quality, premium features, and world-class integrations, Evolve IP is able to meet users and businesses where they are. Making it easier for them to successfully adjust to a Work Anywhere future." Christian Teeft, Chief Technology Officer and EVP of Global Engineering and Software Development at Evolve IP The announcement builds on Evolve IP's and Webex's already robust partnership. "Building on our mutual vision to delight the mid-sized businesses, Cisco is thrilled to join with Evolve IP to deliver Evolve Anywhere with Webex," said Tony Lopresti, Senior Director of Product Management at Webex. "With fully integrated Webex technology, Evolve IP's users will experience a modern, all-in-one collaboration tool that delivers simple, flexible, communications, making their businesses more productive and more secure, with any device from anywhere." Evolve Anywhere with Webex enables enterprises to call, meet, and message in an always on workspace to facilitate continuous workflow—all in a simplified, automated, and compliant manner: Calling – Evolve IP adds high fidelity voice and PBX features natively to the Cisco Webex application with coverage in over 50 countries and seamless support for a variety of traditional handsets and Cisco devices. Meetings – Energize meetings and get results with immersive HD video that integrates with users' calendars and other devices at the touch of a button. Personalized layouts and immersive sharing, noise canceling abilities, rich AI-powered transcriptions and translations, and people insights, are just a few of the features users rely on to be more productive and effective in the workplace. Messaging – Users easily connect and collaborate with people inside and outside of their company to stay on top of what matters, all in one place. Messaging, file sharing, and one-click calling online and offline is a breeze using searchable spaces that integrate with business apps to improve efficiency and workflows. Collaboration – Integrate Webex with essential apps for simplified collaboration, such as Outlook to schedule, view, and join Webex Meetings from a users' calendar. Embed Webex Calling and Meetings into the Microsoft Teams UI. Share and co-edit OneDrive or SharePoint files from within a Webex space. By building upon their partnership and platforms, Evolve IP and Cisco continue to advance their shared vision of helping people achieve more delightful, immersive, and inclusive work experiences.

Nokia will Assist PLDT and Smart in Transforming Their Nationwide Network and Standardizing Virtualization Environment

Nokia | May 19, 2021

PLDT, the Philippines' largest, fully integrated telecommunications group, and its wireless subsidiary Smart Communications will use Nokia's Digital Operations software, cloud infrastructure software, and AirFrame servers to improve their nationwide network. PLDT and Smart will use the suite of solutions to standardize their virtualization environment for multi-vendor applications. The deployment, which is already underway, would enable PLDT and Smart's integrated network to increase agility, flexibility, and reduce operational costs and time to market while delivering new consumer and enterprise services, with the primary goal of significantly improving customer experience, delivery speed, and production cost. Nokia will use the Digital Operations software to simplify the management of network functions, as well as network- and customer-facing services, throughout their lifecycle. The solution will manage two interrelated flows as PLDT and Smart's interconnected network transitions from physical to virtual form. It will first be in charge of the network function lifecycle, from onboarding to runtime and finally decommissioning. Then it will make the lifecycle for orchestrating services and network slices across the network simpler, from design to deployment and assurance. This will enable PLDT and Smart to improve operational efficiency while still being more agile in their delivery of new market-facing services. Nokia will also standardize PLDT and Smart's Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) as the single NFVI for the implementation of various vendors' Virtualized Network Functions throughout the Philippines' South Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao areas. Nokia's NFVI cloud infrastructure and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) core can be used to deploy applications, operations, and network management solutions. About Nokia We develop technologies that enable the whole world to work together. We are committed to innovation and technology leadership across mobile, fixed, and cloud networks as a trusted partner for vital networks. With the support of the award-winning Nokia Bell Labs, we create value through intellectual property and long-term research. We help build the capabilities needed for a more prosperous, secure, and inclusive world by adhering to the highest standards of integrity and security.
