World's First "Floor Wax/Dessert Topping Protocol" Is Born

World's First "Floor Wax/Dessert Topping Protocol" Is Born

We will let the launch site speak for itself:

"Light the Fiber!

Welcome to the future! XCP - the XML Control Protocol - is a drop in replacement for traditional Transmission Control Protocol, or TCP. XCP has many advantages, some of which are outlined in our rationale section. With the advent of XCP/IP, connection-oriented networking will finally move from the legacy environment of inscrutable bits and bytes to a structured, human-readable world relying upon XML.  XCP is the first 4th Generation Protocol, or 4GP.  It is designed for a networking environment that is very fast and very reliable - the Internet of today!

XCP is a floor wax and a dessert topping.  The design of XCP allows it to be a simple point to point connection manager for a single session (e.g., a traditional client/server application model).  In addition, an XCP "server" can act as the end point for a stream through which any existing service can be "tunneled".  By using XCP in new applications, you get finer control over the various aspects of the connection.  However, you can begin using XCP immediately with your legacy applications when it is in "server" mode.

This site is dedicated to describing the architecture behind the project, coordinating project activities among its development community, promoting the use of XCP throughout the Internet, and making XCP-related products available to the general public."

There is plenty more in a similar vein. Happy April 1st! - we can't wait for the first Gartner report on XCP!

Well - it''s sort of an April Fool. However, its not entirely out of the realm of possibility. With the Internet being sooo reliable, TCP is pretty much overkill for most interchanges. And there is way too much dark fiber out there - we need to light it up!

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
