Fulham CEO to Share Insights on the LED Market at Strategies in Light Investors Forum

Bob Howard-Anderson to discuss how the LED industry is evolving and how to determine which Innovations are providing true customer value.

Anaheim, CA, USA -- As the lighting industry becomes an all-LED market, customers are separating innovations that add real value from those that offer technology for technology's sake according to Bob Howard-Anderson, CEO of Fulham Co., Inc., supplier of LED drivers and light sources. Howard-Anderson is scheduled to be one of the Investor Forum speakers at the upcoming Strategies in Light conference, being held at the Anaheim Convention Center. He will share his insights into growth in the LED lighting market, including innovations in LED retrofits and smart lighting.

"The LED market, like every maturing market, has begun to stratify into Smart, Clever and Commodity product segments, divided along the lines of true customer value," said Howard-Anderson. "Smart lighting applications are desired, but clever products are being more readily embraced as the market for LED products grows."

Howard-Anderson notes that clever lighting is an emerging product segment that represents a multi-billion-dollar market opportunity. Unlike fully controllable smart lighting solutions, clever lighting fills a niche for LEDs with special design features such as low-inrush current, dim to off, programmable dimming curves, and build-in NTC thermistors. LED subsystems with these specialty features are making it easier to design more efficient luminaires that deliver better quality light and save power.

"We anticipate that sales of clever LED components will continue to increase dramatically," added Howard-Anderson. "Most manufacturers understand that they can't offer commodity lighting products and compete on price alone. Clever lighting components allow them to offer specialized illumination solutions with differentiated features. At Fulham, our focus has been innovation, resulting in LED products that include these clever features to help our OEM partners differentiate their luminaires."

In addition to clever lighting, Howard-Anderson anticipates other emerging trends will drive LED sales, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), which will enable IP-controlled lighting systems, and Power over Ethernet (PoE), which will make it easier to install luminaires that can be powered and controlled using the same Ethernet connection.

The Investor Forum is scheduled to be held Tuesday, February 28. Howard-Anderson is scheduled to speak at 3:30pm.

Keynote Speaker Edgar Perez to Lead Cybersecurity Workshop for CEOs in Singapore, London and New York

Edgar Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, partnering with Terrapinn Training to bring key insights for board members and CEOs who need to become more educated about cyber security today.

New York City, NY, USA -- As cyber attacks become more common, companies are increasingly investing in cyber security protections and awareness. But even with the best systems in place, hackers can still easily break into a company's network if employees and contractors aren't also being diligent about security. Cyber criminals have gotten much better at disguising malicious email to make it look more legitimate. So employees need to be vigilant and ask questions about all of the email they receive that raises even the slightest suspicion, which is most likely not what happened at some of the high-profile cyber security breaches that have been in the headlines: Adobe, E*Trade, Fidelity, Home Depot, Neiman Marcus, Sony, Target and Wal-mart.

As Internet usage becomes increasingly widespread and information technology ever more complex, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important and business-critical field. Are you and your organization effectively prepared to handle cybersecurity threats? Do you know how to identify threats, address challenges and apply a cybersecurity framework? Participants at Terrapinn Training's 3-Day Masterclass Cybersecurity will:

Gain a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity and its key aspects
Get to grips with various cybersecurity testing methods
Learn valuable system administration techniques for executives
Master the cybersecurity framework and its five core functions
Discover how to establish or improve your cybersecurity program
Consider how the "weak human link" can become the organization's greatest strength
Understand the four components of the cyber preparedness continuum

Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, is a recognized keynote speaker and director of programs targeted at board members, chief executive officers and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain a competitive business advantage. He can be reached through Twitter and Weibo.

ABOUT KNIGHTMARE ON WALL STREET
Knightmare on Wall Street (http://www.knightmareonwallstreet.com), The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, provides a fascinating account of what it took to elevate the firm to the cusp of the retail investing revolution of the late 1990s, to struggle through booms and busts, and to bring the firm down, to end up ultimately being ignominiously bought up by a competitor.

Knight Capital announced a staggering loss of $440 million. What followed after this shocking announcement were several rounds of desperate conversations with a number of vulture players who had smelled opportunity and were readying themselves to pick up bargain-priced pieces. On August 6, 2012, Joyce confirmed that Knight Capital had struck a deal with Jefferies, TD Ameritrade, Blackstone, GETCO, Stephens, and Stifel Financial, staving off collapse days after the trading mishap.

Knightmare on Wall Street, is a thrilling minute-by-minute account of the terrifying hours following Knight Capital's August 1, 2012 trading debacle, with news-breaking research regarding the firm's 17 years of tumultuous existence as an independent company. Knightmare on Wall Street is the definitive behind-the-scenes story of Knight Capital.

He then picks the brains of today's top players.

Virtually all of the expertise available from the world of speed trading is packed into these pages.

The Speed Traders, published by McGraw-Hill, is the most comprehensive, revealing work available on the most important development in trading in generations.

Fulham VP Outlines Need for Interoperability Standards for Smart Lighting at Upcoming Strategies in Light Conference

Russ Sharer, Fulham's VP of Global Marketing, to Review the State of Industry Standards for Lighting Control Networks and Next Generation of Smart Lighting Products.

Anaheim, CA, USA -- At the upcoming Strategies in Light conference to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center, Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham Co., Inc., supplier of lighting and LED components, will be speaking to lighting industry professionals and influencers about the need for true interoperability standards as the lighting market embraces smart lighting. Sharer's presentation entitled "Standards are Meaningless (without Interoperability)" is scheduled for Thursday, March 2.

As Sharer notes, the smart lighting industry lags far behind other industries when it comes to commonly accepted communications standards to for on/off, dimming, color tuning, remote monitoring, task tuning, remote and wireless controls, system alerts, and energy usage reporting. In other industries, accepted, open standards have had a dramatic positive effect on market growth. Consider, for example, the impact of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, both well-documented and well-understood standards that assure product compatibility and interoperability. Lighting control standards, such as ZigBee, DALI (the Digital Addressable Lighting Interface), and Thread are becoming more commonplace but don't guarantee end users can buy lighting components from multiple vendors and operate them with a common control system. As a result, interoperability is only assured if you standardize on a single vendor.

"LED systems can be controlled in any number of ways, but there is no standardized means of mixing vendors," Sharer said. "End users want to create multivendor lighting systems that use a common language, but as yet there are no established standards that guarantee compatibility for lighting control."

The need for interoperable lighting control systems is becoming more urgent with the growing adoption of related applications and standards. For example, the Internet of Things (IoT) is enabling IP-based control of networked devices and components. In turn, IoT is driving demand for centralized network control of devices, including lighting, for applications such as automated building management. Wireless networking standards such as 802.11ac are being adopted for in-home systems management, including home security, climate control, and remote lighting control. Power over Ethernet (PoE) also is becoming popular for new construction and applications such as retail lighting, where lighting is frequently moved. All of these standards are well defined so they can be incorporated into a central control system.

"As smart lighting continues to evolve, interoperability of controls has become more important," said Sharer. "The lighting industry is going to see more demand for lighting standards-compliance, interoperability testing, and certification procedures for both new and retrofit products. And customers are going to shop for standards-certified products that are guaranteed to be compatible with new smart lighting platforms. Those lighting vendors that will prosper in the future are the ones that embrace standards and promote product interoperability."

Introducing Boomer Media Agency "Marketing by and for Baby Boomers"

Engaging the Wealthiest Market Today with the Boomer Media Agency.

Boca Raton, FL, USA -- With 77.3 million baby boomers controlling up to 70% of all the financial assets in the USA and 76% of all discretionary income spent on products and services, why is less than 5% of all advertising dollars being directed at the Baby Boomers? The 50+ market that so many advertisers intentionally ignore isn't big, it's HUGE! We are pleased to introduce the Boomer Media Agency, Media Planning and Buying inclusive of all Social Media Programs exclusively for the 50+ Demographic.

According to Greg Black, President and CEO stated, "We are a unique, passionate and the BIGGEST MARKET OPPORTUNITY in the U.S. today. It's very simple: Boomers don't act old or feel old or play like old folks and they are NOT tightwads, in fact they make the most amount of money and spend what they make. So why aren't businesses and ad Agencies focusing their marketing dollars on more advertising geared DIRECTLY to the boomers? Agencies (and companies) just don't get it, where traditional Agencies don't want to be viewed as catering to the senior market, being too old fashion; Agencies want to be looked at as cool, hip, progressive with young fresh ideas. That's why we have created the Boomer Media Agency (BMA). We have partnered with top shelf media companies to help drive increased business by targeting the 50+ marketplace."

BMA's proprietary platform, Boomer 360° was created to give our clients a total, integrated approach to advertising and social media planning and buying, a concise strategic plan with implementation tactics that directly target and engage the 50+ market, with No Misallocated Dollars, no wasted time or fruitless efforts trying to communicate with an audience who does not have the money or desire to buy your products or services.

BMA understands the 50+ demographic better than any other ad agency or business in South Florida or even nationally. To learn more, please visit http://www.boomermediaagency.com.
