Keysight Technologies, Inc. a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, has joined the Anterix Active Ecosystem Program to help advance private Long-Term Evolution (LTE) broadband deployments in the United States.

Launched in May 2021 the Anterix Active Ecosystem Program is a diverse group of over 65 innovators bringing technology, equipment and services to support utilities and critical infrastructure companies deploying and operating private LTE networks in the 900 MHz band. Market research company ReportLinker forecasts that the private LTE market in North America will increase at a compound aggregate growth rate (CAGR) of 10.7% from 2021, reaching $2B USD by 2028. This growth is driven by an expanding need for enterprise-grade, secure and predictable communications with high availability and reliability, as well as low latencies.

“We’re pleased to contribute to the development of resilient wireless broadband communications for energy, transportation, logistics and other industries, while accelerating their digital transformation journeys,Leveraging solutions extensively used by 4G and 5G technology providers, Keysight will enable Anterix and its critical infrastructure customers to cost-effectively verify designs across the product lifecycle.”

Giampaolo Tardioli, vice president and general manager of Keysight's network access group

Keysight offers a comprehensive suite of design, test, validation and optimization solutions, that enable vendors, system integrators, mobile operators and hyper-scalers to develop and deploy transformative broadband connectivity. These solutions, already used to verify technology deployed in industrial internet of things (IIoT), Industry 4.0 and private 5G networks, enable the integration of products that meet the specific technical and operational demands of utilities and other critical infrastructure entities.

As the largest holder of licensed spectrum in the 900MHz spectrum band (896 – 901/935 – 940 MHz) throughout the United States, Anterix plays a key role in enabling critical infrastructure companies, such as utilities and transportation, to modernize infrastructures, resulting in automated processes and improved productivity.

“A vibrant technology ecosystem includes more than a modern communications network and cutting-edge end-user applications and equipment. It also requires solutions like Keysight’s that enable customers and innovators to design, optimize and integrate products with that network and those applications,” said Carlos L’Abbate, Anterix’s chief technology officer. “We’re pleased to welcome Keysight to the Anterix Active Ecosystem Program and look forward to their unique contributions.”

iM Critical's Miami Data Center: Miami's Next-Gen Colocation Hub

iM Critical | June 13, 2022

The iM Critical Miami Data Center is the newest location in the increasing footprint of iM Critical, a data center and IT services firm driving the future of IT infrastructure. This 100,000-square-foot structure, designed specifically for mission-critical activities, now has over 60,000 square feet of colocation space and 5MW of power. This strategically placed IT hub in the heart of Miami is above the 100-year flood plain and outside of storm evacuation zones, with heavy floor load capacity and 13'8" clear ceiling heights. As a result, this data center provides substantial space and electricity without the usual limits often seen in this market's existing facilities, in addition to keeping advanced IT equipment secure from its surroundings. The data center is well-connected to meet and surpass customers' needs for data agility and mobility, with a variety of fiber entrances, direct, carrier-neutral interconnection to dozens of peers, and a direct public cloud on-ramp. This is complemented by convenient access to major airports and interstate highways. In addition, customers can choose from scalable retail and wholesale colocation options, as well as a 24/7 onsite Network Operations Center, disaster recovery suites, and full-stack IT managed services. "Our Miami location has the potential to remove many barriers for organizations within this metro, while allowing for unimpeded growth of data center operations — augmented by our intense focus on sustainability initiatives. These transformative digital offerings are supported by our high-touch service and our team's depth of experience designing, engineering, building, owning and operating data centers. We're thrilled to be bringing this game-changing location to market." Michael Roark, CEO of iM Critical Onsite renewable energy sources supplement the site's power (supplied by three utility substations) and extensible power infrastructure. This Miami data center, like iM Critical's recently opened Pittsburgh campus, is motivated by iM's core mission to being a leader in environmentally sensitive and sustainable IT processes. This enables the corporation and its clients to meet one of the era's most critical technological imperatives: mitigating climate change and IT's impact on global environments through more energy-efficient data center operations. "Our Pittsburgh announcement was a giant step towards showcasing our innovation in the realm of IT infrastructure to respond to demand for high-performance colocation data centers with imbedded IT service offerings," states Lenny Chesal, iM's Chief Evangelist. "Our Miami location follows suit and will serve to bring this robust building back to life and generate new opportunities to this historic Little River community. We will be working closely with the South Florida tech scene to grow the expanding ecosystem of startups, fast-growth companies, and dynamic enterprises looking for transformative solutions. I am thrilled to be back in Miami where I started in the data center business in 2000!"
