Intel and Nokia open up their first laboratory together where the two will work on creating 3D mobile technologies
Novatel Wireless, the innovative manufacturers of intelligent mobile hotspots, have continually churned out a quality product that's kept on-the-go consumers connected; Their MiFi 2352 and 2372 models are among the industry best at making sure open road roamers never miss an online beat. Though they're still every bit as reliable on current HSPA networks in Europe and North America, respectively; Novatel thought it was about time to upgrade their hotspot tech specs to get with the 4G times.
Their new product portfolio for customer broadband access boasts devices capable of operating on next-generation (4G) super-fast wireless broadband networks of WiMAX and LTE. Novatel hopes that its USB devices and WiMax-capable intelligent mobile hotspots will provide consumers with the opportunity to gain uninterrupted access to services such as Internet TV, mobile video, and on-line video games at speeds of up to 100mbps, which is much more than home connectivity solutions are currently capable of delivering.
The product reveal comes at a pivotal time as the upgrade to 4G has never been a hotter topic. Major carriers the world over are prepping WiMax and LTE Networks to lead the shift. Attempting to maintain relevance by shopping solely 2G, 3G and HSPA-enabled devices would be akin to cruising the autobahn in a horse-drawn carriage. You don't get ahead by shopping a slower technology and Novatel has boosted their profile by coming to the game ready to play.… Read the rest
FlexPort® µWave Expands BridgeWave’s Offerings into the Microwave Market Providing Industry First True Wire-speed GigE Microwave Solution in a Single All-Outdoor Unit
Los Angeles, 4G Wireless Evolution Conference – October 4, 2010 – BridgeWave Communications, the leading supplier of 4G backhaul solutions, has expanded its FlexPort® product family into the microwave domain. The company leverages its expertise in the design of high-capacity, full-rate gigabit millimeter wave (60 GHz and 80 GHz) products to develop FlexPort µWave, the first licensed microwave product line capable of true line-rate GigE connectivity in a single all-outdoor unit and without the need for data compression. BridgeWave’s move into the microwave space demonstrates its commitment to providing carrier-class, high-capacity solutions for next-generation mobile backhaul.
The advance of mobile technologies from 2G to 3G and quickly migrating towards 4G means carriers and mobile operators have been tasked with cost-effectively providing high-capacity backhaul to transmit mobile traffic both to and from cell towers. A recent Cisco Global IP Traffic Forecast reported that Internet video currently includes more than one-third of all consumer Internet traffic, and will approach 40 percent of traffic by the end of 2010. Global mobile data traffic is expected to double every year through 2014, and as a result, backhaul connections must scale appropriately, quickly and cost-effectively to handle this demand.
“As carriers struggle to handle massive 3G data traffic and at the same time ensure a smooth migration to 4G, they are looking for ways to solve the mobile backhaul bottleneck,” said Amir Makleff, CEO at BridgeWave Communications. “BridgeWave is committed to providing solutions that meet those needs – whether carriers are looking for microwave or millimeter wave technology. We have taken our expertise in building high-quality gigabit transmission solutions that have been adopted by carriers worldwide and extended it to the lower frequency spectrum where longer distances can be accommodated. As the amount of data traffic continues to skyrocket, we believe that carriers will demand higher capacity links and we are ready to meet that need.”
FlexPort µWave is the first microwave radio capable of transmitting full-rate gigabit Ethernet in a single, compact, all-outdoor unit. Utilizing BridgeWave’s innovative Ethernet switching, digital modem and signal processing technologies, FlexPort µWave is designed to offer true future-proof access and aggregation capacity without ever having to add on a second radio or climb a tower to achieve full-rate gigabit transmissions in … Read the rest
KUALA LUMPUR – Avaya, a global provider of business communications applications, systems and services, and Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (P1); Malaysia's leading 4G WiMAX telco sealed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on collaboration today, that names Avaya as the preferred technology partner for P1 Next Generation Voice Session Initiation Protocol (NGV SIP) Trunking Service for enterprise markets.
The Avaya and P1 collaboration leverages on the two brands expertise and strength within their respective fields. The collaboration also allows the two companies to cross-market P1 NGV SIP Trunking Service coupled with Avaya Aura for large enterprises and Avaya Software Communications System (SCS) to small and medium businesses (SMBs).
The non-exclusive collaboration represented by P1 CEO Michael Lai and Avaya Malaysia Country Director Teh Chai Peng allows for organizations across all market segments to enjoy cost-effective, efficient communication solutions that increase productivity and drive competitiveness.
Businesses today regardless of size are concerned more than ever about overheads, operations costs and greater productivity. Communication systems is one major area that can be significantly enhanced with the right solutions without costing an arm and a leg. For this, SIP trunking is increasingly becoming a requisite in any enterprise. It is fast replacing existing analogue or digital telephone lines with a data connection," said P1's Lai. Once connected, organizations will see little change in the handling of phone calls but realize benefits and cost-effectiveness with P1 NGV SIP Trunking service.
Customers migrating to P1 NGV SIP Trunking Service enjoy long-term cost-effectiveness as SIP trunks allow for greater flexibility and scalability. Typically, SIP trunks reduce operational costs by enabling the enterprise to eliminate hardware and recurring network charges associated with traditional Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) trunks. Additionally, P1 NGV SIP Trunking Service connects to any IP-enabled Public Branch Exchange (PBX), can complement traditional PSTN links and vice versa.
P1 is the first Malaysian 4G telco to provide SIP trunks with valid numbers, which are fixed numbers that allow for inbound and outbound Internet Protocol (IP) calls, with competitive international direct dialing (IDD) call rates to major cities worldwide.
Avaya's Teh added: "This is a very exciting joint offering, apart from financial savings, P1 NGV SIP Trunking Service coupled with Avaya technology will drive competitiveness in businesses across industries.
