Hitachi Vantara Bulks Up Converged Infrastructure Portfolio

eWeek | June 07, 2018

The young Hitachi subsidiary brings GPUs and NVMe to its UCP lineup and introduces new application solutions for SAP HANA and Oracle databases. Hitachi Vantara is bringing GPUs and NVM-Express to its lineup of converged and hyperconverged infrastructure solutions as part of a larger effort to offer a broad range of systems that can address almost any workload in modern data centers or cloud environments. As part of that effort, the company—the technology subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd.—also is unveiling an array of integrated application solutions in its Unified Compute Platform (UCP) that address such workloads as SAP HANA in-memory platform, Oracle databases, VMware technologies and big data analytics frameworks. The UCP also includes rack-scale systems to give organizations a choice of modular and integrated offerings. The UCP systems are designed to enable “customers to respond quicker to business needs with a simplified, standard platform that is fast to deploy and easy to manage, with less risk,” Bob Madaio, vice president of infrastructure solutions marketing at Hitachi Vantara, said in a statement. The enhancements to the UCP portfolio are the latest in a series of announcements Hitachi Vantara has made over the past several months since the company was created in September 2017. Hitachi combined its Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), Pentaho—Hitachi’s data integration and data analytics business—and Hitachi Insight Group internet of things (IoT) unit to create Vantara, with the goal of addressing the technology needs of industrial and commercial customers. Those customers are adapting their infrastructures as they embrace multicloud environments, the IoT and other modern trends.

Monogoto Welcomes CBRSense IoT Sensor to its CBRS Network

Monogoto | December 23, 2021

Monogoto, the cloud-based global cellular connectivity provider, is pleased to welcome CBRSense™ into its network. CBRSense™ is the first multi-purpose low-power IoT sensor that communicates over private networks. Monogoto partnered with SODAQ, an IoT hardware company that specializes in developing IoT solutions and Sequans Communications S.A. ,a leading provider of cellular IoT chips and modules for massive and broadband IoT - to build CBRSense™. The integration of a low-power, battery operated IoT sensor to the CBRS network introduces a step-change in the range of devices which were previously unsupported. CBRSense™ opens a world of possibilities to multiple industries that have decided to choose CBRS as a network. Compared to what is currently on the market, the new low-cost sensor can be run from any location and enjoys a long-life cycle of more than a year. This successful collaboration began when Sequans strategically allowed low-power modems into CBRS networks, enabling SODAQ's sensors to integrate with private networks. CBRS (citizens broadband radio service) refers to a spectrum block at 3.5 GHz, allocated by the FCC for public use. This provides enterprises with an efficient way to build their own private LTE networks. For meaningful CBRS growth to occur, network capabilities require further development, which in turn will lead to more use cases. The future of 5G development depends on different use cases within the same network (network slicing). CBRSense™ demonstrates use cases for the CBRS network that was previously dominated by high-speed CAT 12 CPE's and UE use cases. Monogoto CEO, Itamar Kunik states: 'We are very pleased to be the first network capable of hosting such a wide array of low-power devices. Our partnership with SODAQ and Sequans was a true collaboration in every sense allowing us to drive this innovation into the CBRS ecosystem'. The three companies will be exhibiting at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) from January 5-8, 2022, offering a first glimpse of their innovative technology. About Monogoto Monogoto provides global, Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity using powerful APIs that enable enterprises and developers to design, build, manage, control and scale their IoT applications quickly and securely. Enterprises use the Monogoto platform to connect and control cellular-based sensors and devices, such as point of sales, ATMs, wearables, smart lights, fleets of cars and packages, and leverage its APIs to provide enhanced flexibility and capabilities like cybersecurity, procurement, and IT management.

Ericsson and MIT Collaborate to Research Next Generation of Mobile Networks

ERICSSON | July 09, 2021

As we enter a new era of electronics driven by 5G and, eventually, 6G, MIT and Ericsson are working together on two research projects to help develop the new network infrastructure needed to undertake the truly revolutionary use cases that the next generation of mobile networks will offer. The new mobile network generations provide the end-user with ultra-fast speeds, low latency, and excellent reliability. Large, feature-rich networks, on the other hand, are complicated structures for network operators to maintain. Ericsson is researching cognitive networks that use artificial intelligence (AI) to allow safe, highly automated, data-driven network operations. Ericsson Research and the MIT Materials Research Laboratory collaborate to research new designs in lithionic chips enabling neuromorphic computing, offering exponentially more energy-efficient AI processing to improve the compute power, speed, and energy efficiency of cognitive networks. This could enable completely intelligent networks with lower operational complexity and energy consumption than today. Apart from lithionics research, Ericsson and the MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) are working on mobile network research that connects billions of sensors and other "zero-energy" devices around us. It is a significant technological challenge to power these devices cost-effectively, possibly directly through a radio signal. Ericsson and MIT RLE's research may show how devices can collect energy from radio signals and other sources and how systems can be built to use this little power to perform basic tasks, such as how a mobile network can be designed to link and manage these devices. ABOUT ERICSSON Ericsson enables communications service providers to realize the value of connectivity fully. The business portfolio includes Networks, Digital Services, Managed Services, and Emerging Businesses. It is designed to assist our clients in going digital, increasing efficiency, and discovering new income streams. Ericsson's efforts in innovation have enabled billions of people across the globe to enjoy the advantages of telephony and mobile broadband.
