New 5G, Low-PIM Rated, Ceiling, Omni and Flat Panel Antennas Address Burgeoning 5G Applications

L-com | August 05, 2021

L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand and a preferred manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that it has introduced a new line of low-PIM rated, ceiling, omni and flat panel antennas to address sub-6 GHz in-building connectivity.

L-com's new ceiling, omni and flat panel antennas are perfect for use in indoor distributed wireless networks where support of sub-6 GHz 5G, LTE, FirstNet or other telecommunication networks are required. With multiple options for form factor, connector count and connector type, a full wireless network deployment can be achieved using these new antennas to reliably cover an entire building with high quality Wi-Fi/cellular service.

These new antennas feature 600 MHz to 6 GHz operation, less than -150 dBc PIM rating, SISO and 2x2 MIMO configurations. They also boast Type-N and 4.3-10 connector options, low-profile ceiling mounts for improved aesthetics, and compatibility with all global sub-6 GHz 5G bands including extended CBRS and UNII-1.

The HG7420-series antennas cover 698 MHz to 4200 MHz frequency bands and the HG6580-series supports 617 MHz to 6000 MHz wireless network applications.

"Our new 5G ceiling, omni and panel antennas were developed to address the latest 5G network deployments where high-performance along with low-PIM ratings are a requirement. By offering these new antennas as stock, off-the-shelf products, we are able to meet our customers' installation deadlines," said Kevin Hietpas, Product Line Manager.

L-com's new low-PIM, 5G antennas are in-stock and available for same-day shipping.

Virtualization presents organizations with tremendous opportunities, as well as some significant challenges. This transformative technology provides the basis for the convergence of mobile and cloud computing, a convergence that is rapidly changing the face of IT as it enables enterprises to consolidate resources, improve responsiveness and support the business agility in a more cost effective manner than ever before. The combination of virtualization, mobility, and cloud computing has triggered an explosion in the quantity of data being created, shared, and managed by enterprises. In most organizations, however, security technologies and practices have not yet adapted to this fundamental change in IT infrastructure.

NetNumber Strengthens Its Relationship with Cablenet as They Expand Their Service Offerings in the Region

NetNumber | October 06, 2021

NetNumber announced today that Cablenet Communication Systems PLC, a telecommunications provider in Cyprus, has selected its Signaling Transfer Point (STP) solution with Number Portability (NP) to help modernize their network, setting the groundwork for service expansion and growth, both in and outside of the region. Cablenet will begin deploying NetNumber's STP-NP in the fourth quarter of 2021 with the goal of being operational by the end of the of 2021. NetNumber's STP-NP is the best in class, carrier-grade software solution, deployed by many Tier 1 and Tier 2 carriers across the globe. NetNumber's STP-NP solution sits on our award winning intergenerational platform TITAN – bringing efficiency, scalability, and programmability into a virtualized and cloud-native architecture. By selecting NetNumber's STP-NP solution, carriers and MNOs are investing in a future-proof infrastructure that reduces TCO while dramatically simplifying the transition from both a TDM network to IP, and from SS7 to a SIP/ Diameter-based signaling environment. This multi-generational solution will enable Cablenet to transition to a modern network architecture setting the stage for the rapid growth that they are expecting. Carrier Networks around the globe are experiencing a range of transitions and shifts from legacy to next generation, including 4G and 5G. While this shift will continue to take time, carriers realize they still need to provide high quality services on their SS7 networks in order to offer the best customer experiences and to protect existing revenues,We are excited to be expanding our long-standing relationship with Cablenet by providing our STP-NP. Cablenet has deep experience with NetNumber's solutions and is an innovator and trailblazer in the region. Their vision of an innovative, intergenerational platform is tightly aligned with ours.

North America, Europe and China Lead Vehicle-to-Everything Adoption as OEMs Partner with Mobile Network Operators

prnewswire | October 15, 2020

Frost & Sullivan's recent analysis, Strategic Analysis of the Global Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) Market, Forecast to 2025, finds that V2X sales across the globe are projected to rise. In North America, sales are estimated to reach US$1.12 billion by 2025, while Europe and China are forecasted to reach US$3.29 billion and US$6.27 billion, respectively. Most regions prefer cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) over dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) because the technology will see a commercial launch in 2021 with cellular LTE-based network access as 5G is not yet fully implemented. Gurumurthy added: "V2X adoption in North America is largely driven by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), mobile network operators (MNOs), and the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA).

Anuket, an open source project to accelerate compliance with infrastructure, interoperability and 5G deployments, is being launched by LF Networking.

prnewswire | January 27, 2021

LF Networking (LFN), which encourages joint effort and operational greatness across open source organizing projects, today declared the making of the Anuket project. A consolidation of CNTT (The Cloud iNfrastructure Telco Taskforce, which gave reference models and structures to both virtual machine and containerized network capacities) and OPNFV (the Open Platform for NFV, which diminished chance to coordinate and convey NFV framework and installed VNF/CNFs), Anuket apparatuses and antiquities engage the worldwide interchanges local area to convey agreeable organization benefits quicker, more dependably and safely, and quicken the change to cloud local foundations. Anuket conveys normalized reference foundation details and conformance structures for virtualized and cloud local organization capacities, empowering quicker and more powerful onboarding into creation, lessening costs, and quickening telecom computerized change. By proceeding with OPNFV's tradition of working upstream with cooperation across other open source projects, (for example, LF Networking, LF Edge, CNCF, LF AI, ODIM and other industry associations and norms bodies) and CNTT's administrator center, the undertaking guarantees innovation meets business and operational requirements. Anuket will likewise protect CNTT's nearby working relationship with GSMA, who will keep on distributing the undertaking's Reference Model work. "It's incredible to see the evolution of what began as the Open Platform for Network Functions Virtualization over six years ago," said Heather Kirksey, vice president of Community and Ecosystem Development at the Linux Foundation. "With Anuket, we are making it easier and more efficient for CSPs to transform their networks and save money, with one, end-to-end platform." "The Anuket project is unique in covering Operator requirements collection and normalisation, subsequent open-source software development, through to Industry certification programs of ecosystem implementations, all under a single initiative," said Walter Kozlowski, Anuket Technical Steering Committee co-chair and Principal, Cloud Infrastructure Architecture, at Telstra. "I am proud to serve in the role of a co-chair of its Technical Steering Committee, and I am excited by the unique opportunity this project creates for my company and for the whole industry, in the area of network transformation and related telco open infrastructure."
