JMA Wireless and ExteNet Systems Achieve Unprecedented Performance in World's First In-Venue Midband 5G Network

JMA Wireless | August 28, 2021

Ahead of the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame game on August 5, 2021, JMA Wireless (JMA) and ExteNet deployed the world's first in-venue midband 5G network at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio. The network enabled unprecedented download speeds of more than 600 megabits per second in the 23,300-seat stadium while it was full of fans, a feat only made possible by JMA's distributed antenna system (DAS). JMA's TEKO DAS, which was deployed in the stadium in 2018 by ExteNet as the neutral-host provider, required no additional cost, labor, or modifications to support the newly upgraded, multi-carrier 5G network. JMA's TEKO DAS is the only DAS capable of supporting 5G-midband networks with this degree of performance and efficiency.

Deployed years in advance of the commercial readiness of the 5G radio air interface standard, TEKO DAS' high performance and ultrawide band capability enabled the stadium to easily upgrade to 5G. Once the 5G network was up and running, speed tests consistently showed performance of over 600 megabits per second during the game. The network allowed tens of thousands of fans to enjoy high-speed 5G connectivity simultaneously, a challenging task in large venues like the Hall of Fame Stadium.

"This historic first is a powerful demonstration of what's possible for thousands of venues across the country where JMA's TEKO DAS is deployed. With its high performance and unique band capability, TEKO DAS is 5G-ready and future-proof, making it easy for venues to upgrade to 5G, with no additional investment or new equipment," said Todd Landry, Corporate Vice President, Product and Market Strategy at JMA Wireless. "We are proud to have worked alongside ExteNet to bring this high-speed performance to fans in Canton, Ohio, and we look forward to the opportunities in front of us with venues nationwide."

"Getting the network ready for the 2021 season inaugural game was our priority and we are extremely pleased with the 5G performance on game day at the stadium," said Kevin Gallagher, Senior Vice President, Product & Marketing for ExteNet. "Together with JMA Wireless, our best-in-class wireless infrastructure and network operations enabled a superior fan experience, as evident from the throughput data for a major carrier. We're honored to serve our venue and carrier partners, improve network performance, and deliver the ultra-fast and high-bandwidth connectivity that users need to accentuate their game-day experience. Thanks to all those involved, and we look forward to bringing this level of service to all of our venue partners."

Prisma Cloud Adds Multi-Cloud Drift Detection to Bridgecrew to Help Organizations Keep Cloud Infrastructure Aligned and Secure

Palo Alto Networks | August 31, 2021

Palo Alto Networks announced that Bridgecrew by Prisma Cloud has added Multi-Cloud Drift Detection to identify and flag discrepancies between how cloud resources were defined in infrastructure as code (IaC) and how they are currently configured in runtime. With misconfigurations a leading cause of cloud breaches, Drift Detection helps improve cloud security posture and enables teams to effectively manage IT infrastructure (GitOps). The initial deployment of Drift Detection supports Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. According to Gartner, "Through 2025, more than 99% of cloud breaches will have a root cause of preventable misconfigurations or mistakes by end users."1 While DevSecOps helps keep misconfigurations to a minimum by codifying and enforcing security policies, out-of-band changes are inevitable because of maintenance, incident response tasks and ad hoc changes these out-of-band changes are known as drift. Regardless of why drift occurs, being able to detect and address it when it does is crucial to maintaining GitOps practices and mitigating cloud risk. "The most effective way to avoid misconfigurations is by adopting infrastructure as code and making all changes through git and a secure continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline. That way, misconfigurations are identified and fixed in code before they're provisioned," said Idan Tendler, vice president of DevSecOps, Prisma Cloud at Palo Alto Networks. "However, even organizations that follow GitOps best practices have 'break glass' emergencies where operations teams need to make quick changes to cloud resources directly in production that can result in drift. Detecting this drift is one of the keys to maintaining a secure cloud infrastructure." Bridgecrew Drift Detection is powered by the company's latest open source project Yor, which automatically tags IaC templates with attribution and ownership details as well as a unique ID that gets carried across to cloud resources. Drift Detection builds on top of Yor's code-to-cloud tracing abilities by alerting developers when a drift occurs and allowing them to automatically fix it straight from the Bridgecrew platform. Because of the visibility and control that Drift Detection allows, it is an important critical capability for any organization that is shifting security left and embracing DevSecOps. About Bridgecrew Bridgecrew by Prisma Cloud is the developer-first cloud DevSecOps platform that enables teams to automate infrastructure security throughout the development lifecycle. With support for infrastructure as code (IaC) scanning, security-as-code fixes, and native developer tools integrations, Bridgecrew shifts security left and makes it accessible to developers. About Palo Alto Networks Palo Alto Networks, the global cybersecurity leader, is shaping the cloud-centric future with technology that is transforming the way people and organizations operate.
