Westell Announces Homecloud Remote Access

Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), a leading provider of telecommunications equipment for wireline, wireless and home networks, today announced the availability of remote access functionality for its HomecloudTM product. The new feature is available in recently released software versions of Homecloud Digital Home Manager along with phone and tablet applications using Apple® iOS and Android operating systems.

“This feature completes the initial set of applications that we had planned for Homecloud,” said Rick Gilbert, Chairman and CEO of Westell Technologies. “It facilitates remote access utilizing dynamic DNS, via any internet connection, to data that is accessible to the Homecloud Digital Home Manager. For example, users can easily access their data that is stored on USB or eSATA drives attached to the DHM. They can also access the data stored at home on Homecloud-enabled computers from virtually anywhere.”

Homecloud effectively networks multiple devices using a variety of operating systems. It significantly simplifies the management and sharing of data and media content, and it allows the user to enjoy the benefits of backup and sharing without the privacy and security concerns or the bandwidth demands that are inherent in cloud-based solutions.

Homecloud units may be purchased only via the Homecloud website, www.homecloud.com, at a price of $180 per unit. Fulfillment is provided by Amazon.

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
