Infotecs | May 10, 2016

Infotecs, a leading international Cyber Security and Threat Intelligence Platform provider, presents its flexible encryption technology, ViPNet, at the it-sa global IT Security Expo and Congress in Nuremberg. Infotecs exhibition stand 12.0-446 in hall 12 is focused on protection and encryption for mobile devices and critical industrial infrastructures. IT security is becoming increasingly important today. That is why this year the it-sa IT Security Expo and Congress hosts more exhibitors than ever before (over 470) showing their products, solutions, and services. Already for the eighth time, the major information platform is open, for IT security experts and decision makers from September 18 to September 20, 2016. Its comprehensive framework program includes talks and discussion rounds. At the exhibitors’ stands, IT decision makers can learn more about various IT security topics, such as, for example, intrusion detection, cloud security, data protection, firewalls, security management, industrial IT security, mobile security, physical IT security, and so on.

While many organizations are still in the early days of tearing down organizational silos to build DevOps teams and implementing continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) workflows, the benefits of streamlined, collaborative development approaches are clear: they enable organizations to bring more features and improvements to market faster. What is not so well understood is how application security is being included
in these dynamic, fast-paced environments and how security testing tools and best practices must be augmented to stay relevant and keep pace. To better understand this emerging paradigm, also known as DevSecOps, we surveyed 350 IT decision-makers at
large enterprises across a variety of industries. The results show that while half of DevOps teams are failing to incorporate application security into their CI/CD workflows, doing so is a high priority and presents many opportunities.

STL and Analog Devices collaborate to build Open RAN 5G radio units

STL | March 01, 2022

STL an industry-leading integrator of digital networks, announced a collaboration with Analog Devices, Inc. to develop 5G Open RAN radio units (O-RU). Together, the two companies will build 5G-ready solutions to expand the diversity of commercially available O-RUs and facilitate the growth of Open RAN networks. As a part of this collaboration, STL and Analog Devices will work closely with other ecosystem providers, including leading power amplifier (PA) vendors, to expand the range of STL's Garuda O-RU indoor small cell offerings. STL will integrate Analog Devices' leading RadioVerse transceivers into Garuda to create power-efficient, high-performance radios. "STL has developed a set of open, disaggregated, virtualized and programmable products and solutions for the access side of the network, Garuda is a next-generation radio product with open interfaces compliant to O-RAN standards. It is cost-effective and a key component in solutions that deliver Industry 4.0 use cases, such as worker safety and factory automation. Leveraging Analog Devices' RadioVerse offerings in our products creates a new industry benchmark for indoor small cell radios, enabling the full power of 5G technology to enhance billions of lives worldwide." Chris Rice, CEO, Access Solutions Business, STL As operators begin rolling out their Open RAN networks, there is increasing demand for regionally customized O-RUs to meet frequency band and power needs. The O-RU is one part of the network that cannot be virtualized, and with expanding requirements for the commercial-ready frequency band and power options, existing indoor radio options limit network operators' choices. STL's Garuda radio product line expands the availability of O-RU devices across global markets. "Building on the success of the Garuda project, we look forward to expanding the collaboration with STL and providing the Open RAN ecosystem with high-performance O-RUs," said Nitin Sharma, General Manager of the Wireless Systems Group at Analog Devices.
