Thick Air, the unbiased host administrator of the associated 5G testbed at Millbrook initially made by the DCMS 5G testbed and preliminaries project AutoAir, has declared a significant redesign of the hyper thick, elite 4G and 5G organization. The organization will be one of the first, and the biggest independent 5G nonpartisan host organization's in Europe. Associated and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) engineers will approach the most recent innovation, including low inertness availability, network cutting and the chance to test vehicles in further developed organizations which are accessible in key fare markets.
These improved organization advances will be sent at Millbrook's 700 section of land autonomous test office in Bedfordshire in mid 2021. Notwithstanding its broad test tracks and labs, Millbrook is home to the UK Government Controlled Urban Testbed for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles – part of CAM Testbed UK.
The AutoAir network is being relocated to business grade Open RAN, disaggregated RAN and cloud local 5GC based 3GPP 5G SA (independent) innovations, utilizing Airspan Networks' item suite. This arrangement bolsters the UK Government's inventory network variety activity and is consistent with arising O-RAN principles which try to democratize the stockpile of Radio Access Units inside an open source stage.
The organization will work on range at 4G Band 40 (2.3 GHz), 4G Band 3 (1.8 GHz) and 5G Band n77 (3.8 and 4.2 GHz) under spearheading shared admittance licenses. This will permit private organizations to work with their own distribution of radio range for test and advancement, while additionally supporting community from versatile organization administrators. The n77 band is equivalent to is as of now in business activity in Japan and which is at present being sold in the USA by the Federal Communications Commission. This implies that clients will have the option to test CAVs in the UK, utilizing the most recent organization frequencies, prior to sending out vehicles to Japan and the USA.
With independent 5G, the full abilities of the most recent 3GPP delivery can be acknowledged in a protected private working climate with inescapable inclusion across Millbrook Proving Ground. This brings Ultra Reliable Low inertness Communications (URLLC), Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC), and organization cutting abilities into a certifiable test field without precedent for the UK. Each increases the value of the innovation scene. With URLLC, inactivity as low as 3ms can be capable and mMTC brings the capability of interfacing hugely a larger number of gadgets per km2 than beforehand conceivable. Organization cutting fundamentally gives a devoted segment of the organization to each arrange administration, encouraging separate localisation, edge-figuring and cloud access. This is comparable to having your own committed path on a motorway that can extend and contract contingent upon what is passing through it!
Paul Senior, CEO, says: "Our partnership with Millbrook goes from strength to strength, and we are delighted to announce this major upgrade to the very latest state-of-the-art 3GPP 5G SA Open RAN technology from Airspan Networks. One of the key goals of the DCMS AutoAir 5G project was to ensure that the network we constructed was sustainable and provided a lasting legacy for Millbrook and the UK's CAV eco-system. The deployment of a 3GPP 5G standalone infrastructure using the n77 band creates a unique test and development opportunity that can support both automotive and telecommunication eco-systems, within a bookable and accessible research facility."
Connor McCormack, President of Millbrook says: "This upgrade is a huge step forward in capability, bringing the latest technology to our 5G testbed. It brings vast benefits to customers within our secure operating environment and future-proofs our testbed for the long-term. We are very proud to be part of the AutoAir consortium and look forward to the roll out of this cutting-edge technology."
Eric Stonestrom, CEO of Airspan Networks says: "We are delighted to continue our long term relationship with the DCMS funded AutoAir project. The 5G upgrade using Airspan's OpenRANGE end-to-end Sub-6 GHz solution is another proof point for the use of OpenRAN technology to leverage innovation in the UK"

Sandvine | February 10, 2022
Sandvine is launching a series of new 5G Application and Network Intelligence portfolio enhancements that give its 20+ 5G customers deeper insights into application Quality of Experience (QoE), and the impact of 4G to 5G transitions on networks, users, bandwidth usage, devices, and QoE.
The enhancements include:
Cloud native support for Sandvine's advanced 5G Service Intelligence Engine, a leading 3GPP-compliant Network Data Analytics Function (NWDAF) designed for automation and zero-touch, closed-loop service and slice assurance in 5G networks. The NWDAF will help CSPs proactively manage their core and edge networks through network function (NF) and slice load analysis use cases;
Updates to Sandvine's analytics, including Deep Insights and Insights Data Storage, designed to help CSPs deliver application QoE and security controls to subscribers through pre-packaged object models that track statistics about user behavior, devices, services and application performance;
Enriched software use case modules:
Intent-based congestion management, evolved for higher-scale deployments and actively deployed in Fixed Wireless Access networks;
Real-time subscriber insights, upgraded to give operations teams and customer care agents greater visibility into app performance and behavior to better meet 5G throughput, latency, and customer experience requirements;
Cyberthreat analysis and management to prevent cyberattacks; and

Syxsense | August 26, 2021
Syxsense, a global leader in IT and security management solutions, announced today the ability to automatically respond to critical IT infrastructure disruptions. Syxsense adds customizable workflow status checks and controls for services, databases, websites, events, and servers. Within the workflow, monitor that there are no data disruptions, alert that your website is non-responsive, restart and repair windows services and events.
Use the web monitor action to watch for and respond to website outages to help guarantee that a customer's experience, from first click to purchase, is a positive one. Set downtime checks as frequently as every 30 seconds, if your site is non-responsive you will immediately receive notification. Completely customizable, workflows can automate the restart of necessary services, responding and fixing the problem with no manual intervention and limited downtime. With a variety of web action checks (delete, get, head, post, put, trace), interact with any web service or web API for transaction monitoring and avoid technical outages at the point of purchase. Checks run from any number of locations for worldwide redundancy, know that customers from Asia to Europe are getting similar response times.
Syxsense also extends its' automation workflow library with logic action pairs to verify uptime and reboot servers; check the state of windows events and services then start or stop them, and finally monitor the responsiveness of SQL databases to initiate repair.
In the instance of PrintNightmare, the patch Microsoft released only fixed half of the problem. IT admins still had to disable the print spooler service by hand. The Syxsense Cortext workflow is able to disable or enable a specific windows feature, saving time and securing the environment.
Syxsense Cortex is a visual drag and drop designer that easily automates complex actions directly on the endpoint, only available in Syxsense Secure.
"With this release, customers are to detect and resolve critical infrastructure disruptions in live-time," emphasized Ashley Leonard, CEO of Syxsense. "Syxsense Secure fits seamlessly into the existing infrastructure and routines for automated security and patch remediation."
Syxsense Cortex is included with Syxsense Secure at no additional cost. Syxsense is offering free, fully-featured trials for up to 100 devices for 14 days. More information on the software and trial can be found here.
Syxsense is the leading provider of innovative, intuitive technology that sees all and knows everything about every endpoint, in every location, everywhere inside and outside the network, as well as in the cloud. It combines the power of artificial intelligence with industry expertise to manage and secure endpoints by stopping threats before they occur and neutralizing threats when they happen. The Syxsense Endpoint Security Cloud always-on technology performs in real-time so businesses can operate free of disruption from security breaches that cripple productivity and expose them to financial risk and reputational harm.
