“For more than 40 years our company has produced the toughest and most dependable cases for military, law enforcement and firefighter professionals. We are extremely pleased to launch a range of mobile electronics cases with the same kind of protection for consumers,” said Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican. “The Pelican ProGear Vault and Pelican ProGear Protector series provides your iPhone 5 with exceptional protection and clear audio performance, while still allowing for use of the phone.”

Matching the sleek precision of the iPhone 5, the CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault case is slim and lightweight without sacrificing protection. Made with engineering-grade aluminum and polymer materials, the Vault’s full-enclosure design (for which it earns its name) provides vital defense from wind-driven rain, snow and dust along with insulating elastomeric shock and impact protection from a height of 72 inches.

Each function button is made with aircraft-grade aluminum for precise control. Its water-resistant membrane covers the microphone and speakers to discourage water ingress without hindering audio fidelity. The CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault case also features a durable screen cover with anti-scratch technology, an optical-grade, Dragontrail® glass camera port and flush-fitting stainless steel hex-head machine screws. The product is available in a wide variety of color combinations for an MSRP of $79.95.

To defend smartphones from daily drops and typical wear and tear, Pelican Products’ engineers have created two levels of protection in the CE1150 Pelican ProGear Protector case for the iPhone 5. Its first line of defense is a tough, shock-deflecting outer shell that saves the iPhone’s glass face from direct impact on flat surfaces. The second level is a soft, elastomeric interior lining to protect the device from scratches and impact. Additionally, the outer shell has a smooth finish to allow the case to slide easily into pockets and bags. Available in several color combinations, the CE1150 Pelican ProGear Protector Series phone case has an MSRP of $39.95.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
