PARC has developed a communications protocol complementing existing IP infrastructure to dramatically reduce backhaul congestion on telecommunications networks.
This is a proposition for the design and deployment of a communication platform for medical devices and healthcare management systems based on PARC’s Content-Centric Networking (CCN) technology. It includes use case scenarios and innovation propositions for medical device and healthcare provisioning companies.
Up to 50 percent of total electricity consumption in office buildings is used for lighting. The worldwide drive to conserve energy and reduce CO2 emissions, as well as legislation to ban incandescent lights, is driving the adoption of low-energy lighting alternatives. As building lighting systems transition to more energy-efficient options, there is a growing opportunity to provide a secure, robust, and cost-effective way to install, operate, and manage these systems. This document presents a proposition for the design and prototyping of lighting control systems based on PARC’s Content-Centric Networking (CCN) technology. It includes an initial work proposition along with example use cases.
With the explosion in consumer electronics devices and growth in digital content generated and consumed at home, there is an increasing need for easy access to and sharing of digital media at home. Despite many efforts for industry standardization, device configurability and management remains a barrier to an intuitive user experience and seamless content sharing between devices. This document proposes a methodology for secure and intuitive device configuration and remote access service that enables sharing of media across mobile and home networking devices. The proposal outlines a phased methodology for easy and secure device configuration over Wi-Fi Direct, bootstrapping home network configuration, and enabling remote access and sharing of digital content. The document also highlights opportunities to drive growth for companies that operate in the consumer electronics devices or home media services sectors.
PARC offers a proven co-extrusion printing technique, CoEx, that can enhance both the energy and power densities of batteries. A cost-effective way to manufacture structured electrodes, this technique can be applied to both cathodes and anodes for most mature battery chemistries.
