more functionality is crammed into a single box its complexity and
support costs rise while its usability and product life declines.
Most of today's digital products are internally modular but externally
monolithic and this creates limitations. The most obvious limiting
factors are processing power, storage capacity and the ability of
the operating system to manage all the processes. The personal computer
is a singular modular approach (a single system is formed by the parts)
that is externally monolithic.
allows increased functionality without these limiting factors. A truly
scalable system must by definition be modular. NextBend's UniStac
design is a singular externally modular approach that creates a comprehensive
system for the delivery of digital applications and services. Mass
customization made possible by UniStac's external modularity benefits
consumers, service providers and product developers.
