People, information, processes, things, infrastructures and computers are being connected with each other in networks more than ever before. At the same time, developments like the Internet of Things (IoT), Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are enabling the merging of virtual and real worlds. Information technology (IT) is thus having a growing impact on our lives both private and professional. This overall process is also changing IT infrastructures at a rapid pace. The wave of virtualization evident in recent years was probably just the beginning of a development that is now leading to the establishment of the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC).

MaxLinear announces three new modules in Infrastructure Applications that simplify FPGA, DSP and SoC power management designs

businesswire | December 01, 2020

MaxLinear a main supplier of radio recurrence (RF), simple, advanced and blended sign coordinated circuits, reported today the expansion of its double yield power module family with the arrival of a double 18A (MxL7218) and two double 25A (MxL7225 and MxL7225-1) power modules. These recently delivered items add to the current group of intensity modules that incorporate double 4A (MxL7204) and double 13A (MxL7213) forms and address mechanical applications, for example, clinical and test gear. Moreover, these force modules supplement our industry driving foundation items, for example, 5G handsets and modems, long stretch optical TIAs and drivers, and link framework SoCs. The double 18A and two double 25A force modules permit yields to be resembled for up to 36A or 50A per module, individually. Also, the force modules might be resembled for single force rails up to 300A. The MxL7225-1 gives added adaptability to tweak the control circle in situations where ideal transient execution is required. Zeroed in on fueling FPGA, DSP and SoC high-current center and memory rails, these modules work from a 4.5V to 15V information voltage while giving set yield voltages from 0.6V to 1.8V. Utilizing an industry standard pinout, planners can without much of a stretch scale the force levels to coordinate the necessary burden. As force levels increment, productivity and warm execution gets key. Not exclusively do these modules have superb warm conductivity to the board, however by setting inductors remotely and limiting mold compound thickness, the case temperature can be as much as 13°C cooler without the complex inner warmth sinking structures found in contending modules.

Extreme Networks and Wireless Broadband Alliance Deliver OpenRoaming Connectivity

Extreme Networks, Inc. | September 29, 2021

Extreme Networks Inc. a cloud-driven networking company, today announced it has successfully implemented support of Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) OpenRoaming™ at the Polytechnic Institute of Viseu (IPV) in Portugal. OpenRoaming enables students, teachers, and other users on IPV's campus to connect to a high-speed, secure, carrier-grade Wi-Fi 6 network wherever they are, indoors and outdoors, without experiencing disruption to their wireless network connection. IPV is the first organization in Portugal to participate in WBA OpenRoaming. In addition to OpenRoaming, Extreme has led the market in Wi-Fi carrier offload for 4G and 5G networks. In February of 2020, the company partnered with Verizon to create "smart stadium" technology at Super Bowl LIV in Miami. Verizon's wireless network was linked to ExtremeWireless™ Wi-Fi access points and ExtremeAnalytics™ software, providing seamless connectivity and authentication for fans in and around the stadium. Extreme currently offers RADSec and carrier offload with all major wireless carriers in the U.S. WBA OpenRoaming delivers seamless handoff from any number of cellular networks to Wi-Fi, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity for users much like how smartphones connect instantly to various telecommunications networks. Extreme worked with Aptilo Networks to bring OpenRoaming to IPV's campus alongside a Wi-Fi 6 network deployment. Now, students, staff, and visitors can connect to the IPV campus network without requiring manual authentication. This results in better experiences for users and a reduced workload for IPV's IT team, who previously had to manually authorize every network user from outside of Viseu to access on-campus Wi-Fi. Key Benefits: Simplified connectivity for users and reduced demands on IT: Previously, European regulations forced IPV's IT team to add and remove network users manually, including staff members and students, making it complicated to access Wi-Fi on campus. With OpenRoaming, students and staff on IPV's campuses can easily connect to the wireless network without losing account settings or history, and the IT team can focus on furthering the use of technology across the IPV campus. Improved student outcomes and opportunities: OpenRoaming simplifies IPV's ability to expand programming and bring new events to campus, without requiring the IT team to set up secure network access each time. They can provision different levels of service for different users and events depending on specific needs. IPV's student base can now access resources through the same user account across all their devices on IPV's campus without paying for a broadband connection or setting up a new account. Increased wireless network security: IPV and similar organizations can benefit from the freedom of OpenRoaming without opening themselves to potential security risks or failing to comply with local regulations. OpenRoaming leverages existing security protocols such as Passpoint, RADSec, and standards 802.1x and 802.11i to ensure network security without compromising user privacy. It pairs Wi-Fi network providers with identity providers, such as mobile operators and ISPs, who register authenticated users and enable them to connect to any participating wireless network automatically. Executive Perspectives: OpenRoaming is key in delivering seamless, secure access to Wi-Fi, which is a necessity for modern higher education institutions like IPV that seek to provide students with the best possible resources for learning. WBA members like Extreme are helping deliver reliable, high-speed connectivity around the globe and we are proud to support them as our world becomes more reliant on wireless networks. Tiago Rodrigues, CEO, Wireless Broadband Alliance Luís Almeida, Senior Network Administrator, Instituto Politécnico de Viseu "IPV is incredibly excited to be part of WBA OpenRoaming. This implementation will improve user experiences for everyone who accesses Wi-Fi on our campus – students, teachers, employees, visitors, and participants in the various national and international conferences we host – not to mention reduced stress for our IT team in managing the network. Our experience with Extreme throughout this project has been wonderful, and we hope to be an example of what OpenRoaming can achieve for other institutions and communities across Europe as the project continues to grow." Nabil Bukhari, Chief Product Officer and Chief Technology Officer, Extreme Networks "Open roaming between 5G and Wi-Fi networks is critical in enabling next-generation consumer experiences and the Infinite Enterprise. Seamless and secure connectivity inside and outside of buildings makes things like smart cities and working and learning from anywhere a possibility. Extreme is proud to be part of the WBA's consortium of industry leaders that are striving to make connectivity more seamless and accessible, and we're confident it will have a positive impact for everyone on IPV's campus." About the Wireless Broadband Alliance Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) is the global organization that connects people with the latest Wi-Fi initiatives. Founded in 2003, the vision of the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) is to drive seamless, interoperable service experiences via Wi-Fi within the global wireless ecosystem. WBA's mission is to enable collaboration between service providers, technology companies, cities, regulators and organizations to achieve that vision. WBA's membership is comprised of major operators, identity providers and leading technology companies across the Wi-Fi ecosystem with the shared vision.
