Education

The University of California, Santa Barbara (commonly referred to as UC Santa Barbara or UCSB) is a public research university and one of the 10 general campuses of the University of California system. The main campus is located on a 1,022-acre (414 ha) site near Goleta, California, United States, 8 miles (13 km) from Santa Barbara and 100 miles (160 km) northwest of Los Angeles. Tracing its roots back to 1891 as an independent teachers' college, UCSB joined the University of California system in 1944 and is the third-oldest general-education campus in the system. UCSB traces its origins back to the Anna Blake School which was founded in 1891 and offered training in home economics and industrial arts. The Anna Blake School was taken over by the state in 1909 and became the Santa Barbara State Normal School. Intense lobbying by an interest group in the City of Santa Barbara, led by Thomas Storke and Pearl Chase, persuaded the State Legislature, Governor Earl Warren, and the Regents of the University of California to move the State College over to the more research-oriented University of California system in 1944. The State College system sued to stop the takeover, but the Governor did not support the suit. A state initiative was passed, however, to stop subsequent conversions of State Colleges to University of California campuses. From 1944 to 1958 the school was known as Santa Barbara College of the University of California, before taking on its current name. When the vacated Marine Corps training station in Goleta was purchased for the rapidly-growing college, Santa Barbara City College moved into the vacated State College buildings.

D2 is the market leader in software that powers IP communications for devices used in converged communications applications and markets. The company’s mCUE™, a converged multi-modal communications client solution and vPort™, an embedded VoIP software product, enable service providers, OEMs and ODMs to more quickly deliver to market today’s most in-demand communications services and applications for mobile phones, media players, mobile Internet devices (MIDs), netbooks, desktop IP phones, CPE equipment (gateways, routers, IADs) and more.With the wealth of communication mediums available to users today, from text and cell to VoIP, video, IM, social networks and beyond, device manufacturers, service providers, software vendors and others are scrambling to add enhanced connectivity to previous stand-alone devices (consumer electronics, photo frames, PMPs, etc.) and multiplying the number of communication options on desktop, mobile and CPE devices. The next major trend is the unification of these communication mediums, eliminating the service-silo focus and replacing it with an integrated, user-centric solution that makes the underlying services transparent and the connection interface completely seamless.Converged communication, with its advanced functionality such as Presence and IM, offers tremendous value to enterprises through unified communications (UC), and helps carriers boost revenues via provided or hosted services as well as residential broadband. In turn, the emergence of new converged communication devices and modes demand a completely new type of communications user interface for a seamless user experience.As manufacturers rush new multi-modal devices to market, one thing is clear: a vendor neutral software solution is as critical as the development of new hardware in powering the communication's revolution. D2’s software elegantly enables multi-modal converged communications on devices used in diverse market applications and addresses the needs of OEMs and service providers by delivering integrated FMC and UC functionality.D2’s VoIP and IP communications software are the products of choice for top-tier communication OEMs and service providers because they drive revenue and differentiate their solutions in key segments of the communications market. Current customers include Cisco, Nortel, Alcatel-Lucent, 3Com, Sonus Networks, Ericsson, Siemens, Zhone, Polycom, Neuf/SFR, Clearwire, LG, Sumitomo and others.Hardware and software design are related, but distinctly separate, engineering disciplines. By abstracting the software layer so it is independent of the underlying hardware, D2 enables manufacturers to concentrate on product platform design and branding while leveraging the best available software, OS and IC components. D2’s user experience solution abstracts specific communications services (e.g. PBX based enterprise VoIP, cellular voice or third party VoIM like Google Talk) making the solution highly flexible, configurable and portable to a variety of mobile device development platforms such as Android, Windows, Ubuntu and other Linux.Regardless of an OEM’s design needs, D2’s highly modular architecture ensures portability to any processor, hardware or OS and delivers industry-leading features and call quality. In fact, D2 has developed long-standing relationships and a solid ecosystem with the industry’s leading SoC/IC companies including Cavium, LSI, Freescale, Marvell, Applied Micro, Texas Instruments, NXP, and Infineon.In short, D2 Technologies’ software engines ensure that a broad range of manufacturers are able to quickly and affordably deliver on the promise of converged communications.
