Nissan migrates its high performance computing workloads to oracle Cloud Infrastructure
Oracle announced today that Nissan Motor Co., Ltd is migrating its on-premises, high-performance computing (HPC) workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Nissan relies on a digital product design process to make quick and critical design decisions to improve the fuel efficiency, reliability and safety of its cars. By moving its performance and latency sensitive-engineering simulation workloads to Oracle Cloud, Nissan will be able to speed the design and testing of new cars. Specifically, Nissan uses software-based Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and structural simulation techniques to design and test cars for external aerodynamics and structural failures. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's compute, networking, and storage services optimized for HPC applications will allow Nissan to benefit from the industry's first and only bare-metal HPC solution with RDMA networking as it innovates cars. Nissan anticipates higher performance and lowers costs with the ability to easily run their engineering simulation workloads in the cloud.

COMSovereign's Innovation Digital LLC and IQ-Analog Announce Strategic Alliance for Next Generation of Software Defined Radio Technology

COMSovereign Holding Corp | August 27, 2021

COMSovereign Holding Corp. (NASDAQ: COMS) ("COMSovereign" or "the Company"), a U.S.-based developer of 4G LTE Advanced and 5G Communication Systems and Solutions, today announced that its Innovation Digital LLC ("Innovation Digital") unit and IQ-Analog ("IQA"), a leading developer of wideband transceiver products targeting military communications and technology for the next generation of cellular communications systems, entered into a strategic development alliance targeted at "beyond 5G" wireless communication. As part of the strategic alliance, IQA will incorporate Innovation Digital's patented digital signal processing algorithms and architectures into its next generation of Application Specific Integrated Circuits ("ASICs") designed for future commercial and military markets. The strategic alliance intends to provide unique solutions serving the multi-billion-dollar military market including communications, RADAR, and phased array sensor systems. The technology will also support next generation 5G commercial systems addressing both sub-6 GHz and mmWave deployments featuring multi-beam frequency-agile antenna systems and accelerated processing units for 5G Access Edge systems. By eliminating the need for many of today's radio frequency ("RF") hardware components and moving digital processing closer to the antenna, the companies believe their combined technologies will provide the industry with "beyond state-of-the-art" wideband transceiver products including unprecedented performance and power efficiency. This new architecture will reduce the cost of future radio hardware designs, increase reliability, and improve performance and the jointly developed solutions can be used to enhance COMSovereign's next generation 5G radios. The new alliance further extends existing relationships between the Company and IQA, which includes continuing engagements with Innovation Digital and with COMSovereign's Silver Bullet Technology unit who is already providing engineering services in support of IQA's ASIC development.
