Speed Tests Show New Record with SureCall Horizon 5G Network Signal Booster

SureCall | February 03, 2022

SureCall, an authorized Verizon 5G signal booster vendor, today announced the results of a field-based study of its Horizon booster (sometimes called a repeater) on Verizon's 5G mmWave Ultra Wideband® (UWB) network, consistently producing near 3 GBps of data speed. The final conclusions of the testing showed SureCall's technology's ability to provide significant benefits to speed and connectivity for all 5G mmWave carriers. You can see a video of the test results here. The team tested download and upload speeds for Verizon's 5G UWB network in an area where, without the Horizon, mmWave data speeds were not found as man-made obstructions were blocking the 5G UWB signals. After activating SureCall's Horizon network signal booster and measuring from multiple distances from the 5G mmWave base station, speed and signal strength improved significantly. At a total distance of 100 meters from the Horizon network booster – in an area where there was no Verizon 5G UWB signal without the Horizon – SureCall's booster provided nearly 3 GB of data speed. "We're so proud of the work our team has put in to build the most powerful 5G mmWave network signal booster,These recent tests showcase the viability of SureCall's network booster technology and how it will play an essential role in the building out of the 5G infrastructure. Our technology provides an essential and cost-effective boost for carriers as they build out their 5G networks, and now we can say, provides incredible improvements to signal quality, speed and strength." CEO for SureCall Hongtao Zhan SureCall used the Horizon, a patent-pending 5G mmWave network signal booster. Built as part of SureCall's 5G Everywhere™ platform to complement base stations as part of a network buildout, the Horizon allows carriers to significantly increase the coverage area of a single base station by boosting the signal in multiple directions, to overcome obstructions and fill coverage gaps. The SureCall Horizon features the highest power on the market, providing more than 10 times the power of the closest available competitor product. This equates to greater range and improved data speeds for more customers in more places. It is also customizable and available globally for all carriers rolling out their 5G networks. A technology leader in building reliable, cost-effective signal boosting technology, SureCall consistently outperforms competing products in independent testing with its patented and patent-pending technology. For 20 years, SureCall has been supplying 2G, 3G and 4G signal boosters in high volume to serve the mobile marketplace. The tests were completed in San Jose, where the base station was consistently transmitting more than 3 GBPS, at 100 meters. For the test, the Horizon was placed 100 meters from the base station (for a total of 200 meters away) and repeated the signal 100 meters away for the blazing speed of nearly 3 GBps.

Dell Technologies Speeds Journey to Multi-Cloud with Portfolio Expansion

Dell Technologies | January 20, 2022

Dell Technologies introduces multi-cloud capabilities that offer a consistent experience wherever applications and data reside. The company also expands support for developer operations (DevOps) with new offers and resources to help choose the right cloud environment combined with the security, support and predictable cost of Dell infrastructure. "Today's multi-cloud reality is complex as data becomes more distributed across on-premises and colocation data centers, multiple public clouds and edge environments,We have the industry's broadest technology portfolio, consistent tools, experience building open ecosystems and leading data storage capabilities, services and supply chain. All this uniquely positions Dell to help customers take control of their multi-cloud strategy." Jeff Boudreau, president, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies A new Forrester Consulting study commissioned by Dell Technologies reveals that 83% of organizations have adopted a multi-cloud approach or plan to within the next 12 months. New Dell services help organizations manage, store and protect data across multiple cloud platforms. This allows organizations to bring the simplicity and agility of public cloud platforms to the location of their choice with APEX services—achieving multi-cloud by design not by default. "As a global organization with facilities spread across over 80 countries, the ability to have access to data on our over 700,000 product variations is essential to ensuring we meet our customers where they are," said Michael Loggins, global vice president of IT at SMC Corporation. "Central to our strategy is creating an IT infrastructure that connects data in public clouds with our traditional data centers and taking full advantage of what's happening at the edge. What Dell is delivering offers a great step towards helping us manage and take control of everything regardless of where it resides." APEX Multi-Cloud Data Services simplifies access to data across multiple clouds APEX Multi-Cloud Data Services will provide file, block, object and data protection services for simultaneous access to all major public clouds from a single source of data. Integrated with the APEX Console, it will allow organizations to easily connect storage and data protection to preferred public clouds and services. This will help avoid public cloud vendor lock-in, excessive egress fees and the cost and risk associated with moving data from one cloud to another. APEX Backup Services provides simplified and secure cloud data protection With data becoming more challenging to protect as it grows across multiple clouds, APEX Backup Services provides end-to-end scalable, secure data protection with centralized monitoring and management for SaaS applications, endpoints and hybrid workloads.

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.
