Dear Friends,

I hope that all of our readers had a great time in the third quarter.

Cloud and mobility, after a hesitant start, are being accepted as the inevitable future technology tools by C.I.Os and they are aligning this new reality with their business needs.

We at Swan are also identifying and putting in place new technology partnerships to stay abreast and which we believe will contribute significantly to our future revenues. We will shortly announce new tie ups which will help us offer a more comprehensive solution stack to our customers.

Swan, for the second consecutive quarter has shown Year-on-Year growth across all our divisions viz. Solutions, Services and Products. We had a good last quarter thanks to a few large deals we concluded in alliance with HP for setting up cloud infrastructure for our key customers.

We look forward to receive your continuous support and patronage. I also encourage you to participate in this edition's quiz and as always send us your feedback for this issue.

Technology Trend
LTE (Long Term Evolution)

LTE (Long Term Evolution) is a wireless broadband technology designed to support roaming Internet access via cell phones and handheld devices.

Because LTE offers significant improvements over older cellular communication standards, some refer to it as a 4G (fourth generation) technology along with WIMAX. With its architecture based on Internet Protocol unlike many other cellular Internet protocols, Long Term Evolution supports browsing Web sites, VoIP and other IP-based services well.

LTE can theoretically support downloads at 300 Mbps or more based on experimental trials. Industry Analyst predicts that, by 2016, a total of 830 million subscribers worldwide will have access to mobile data solutions through LTE networks.
