Nomadix Inc., bringing connected experiences to life, today introduced its latest Cloud Telephony solution that will be offered through a disruptive per-property price model for the hospitality market. Available as a module of the Nomadix suite of internet gateways, the cloud-based, single-source telephony service is designed for properties of all sizes across the US and coming soon for Europe and APAC. It will be showcased in booth #524 at the AAHOACON convention April 11-14, in Los Angeles.
Replacing the hospitality industry standard of price per-extension or per-room, Nomadix is introducing a simplified offering for small, medium and large properties. The solution is compatible with various SIP phones, allows properties to reuse analog guest room phones and integrates with most PMS services. It also adheres to the stringent brand and legal standards.
“Hospitality organizations recognize the importance of communications and connectivity to deliver on top business objectives and remain competitive. This is reflected in IDC data showing that the majority of hospitality enterprises plan to increase spend in communications technology in 2023.* To ensure customer satisfaction and employee productivity are in lock-step while driving business outcomes like increased revenue and customer lifetime value, brands need to have robust, affordable and seamless communications platforms for both front- and back-of-house,” said Dorothy Creamer, Research Manager at IDC Research, Hospitality & Travel Digital Transformation Strategies.

“We have been the experts in providing dynamic internet bandwidth allocation for hotels through our suite of gateways over the past 25 years. When choosing an internet-based telephony service, trust in the vendor and the quality and reliability of the network are critical components, so it’s a natural extension of our business to offer our Cloud Telephony solution,” said Speleos Dravillas, chief revenue officer at Nomadix. “We are excited to introduce this new offering with competitive per-property price bundles to make it simple and affordable for hotels to adopt.”
Nomadix internet gateways are a powerful standard for the hotel network and now feature the Cloud Telephony service, adding to the Firewall module and security enhancements announced last month.

FEATURES AND ADVICE
BrainHQ | March 10, 2023
BrainHQ, a brain training system, has recently announced the conclusion of its pilot study, showing that brain training can help space travel. The research was conducted with computerized brain training and Posit Science marketed it.
The researchers found that space travel has a hazardous impact on the brain because of the gravitational forces involved in liftoff and landing, radiation, microgravity, and isolation. These impacts resulted in effects like intracranial pressure, impaired vision, vestibular dysfunction, altered fluid levels in veins and arteries, white matter changes, and premature aging. They grouped the astronauts having qualities like age, education and discipline who are employees from the Johnson Space Center for the Increasing Cognitive Ability/Reserve Using Software (ICARUS) pilot study. It tested their cognitive performance through its assessments and Cognition Test Battery, a software-based test dedicated to NASA.
It trained five of these participants for about 15 hours of training, 18 sessions and over the 90 days. They improved on internal measures of its exercises with a 71% increase on average in primary performance metrics. On the NASA Cognition Test Battery, they showed 19% gains on average. With preliminary findings, the pilot study provided data and feasibility for further research.
CEO of Posit Science, Dr. Henry Mahncke said, “These are exciting results in a new area, which is literally about the New Frontier.” He added, “Whether it’s returning to the moon or colonizing Mars, we know that addressing the cognitive challenges of long-term space flight is essential. These results fit nicely with what we’ve seen in building cognitive reserve in older adults and people recovering from brain injury and brain fog, as well as improving peak performers — such as special forces, law enforcement, or athletes — expected to perform at superhuman levels under extreme time and performance pressures.”

The international team of neuroscientists and brain experts tested its brain training system. Its exercise is scientific-based, and researchers validated its real benefits in their published papers. The experts design, test and redefine its online exercises for cognitive issues, healthy aging and mental conditions. It uses a special algorithm to adapt difficulty in each exercise at the optimum level. Its exercises are divided into different levels for a flexible period, depending on the personal training goals, on any computer or mobile device.
