STL establishes a Macro Radio Ecosystem 5G Multi-Band

prnewswire | December 09, 2020

STL an industry driving integrator of computerized networks, has built up a start to finish multi-band radio answer for cutting edge 5G organizations. The item gives an extensive Open RAN (Radio Access Network) arrangement crossing across Radio Unit (RU), Centralized Unit (CU) and Distributed Unit (DU), with STL shaping a key environment union for 5G New Radio (NR) items lined up with Open RAN open interface guidelines.

As administrators around the globe quicken 5G organization arrangement, New Radio arrangements should facilitate reasonable usage of upgraded broadband, low inactivity correspondences and enormous IoT. STL has been effectively pursuing structure an elite, open and spry biological system to plan and convey such 5G arrangements. Since such arrangements require both profound specialization in radio equipment and programming components and successful reconciliation of every component, STL has grown profound skill in Open RAN guidelines based programming incorporation. In doing as such, STL fashioned an exceptional cooperation with Saankhya Labs, VVDN and the related Open RAN environment for their particular mastery regions. These arrangements will empower administrators worldwide to address different sending use cases with a quicker an ideal opportunity to advertise.

Commenting on the development of the multi-band radio, Dr. Badri Gomatam, Group CTO, STL said, "Our global ecosystem is designed to ensure reliable and scalable deployment of Open RAN radio units and small cells. With our collective engineering experience on open interfaces across distributed units and radio units (DU/RU), we are directly addressing the all-important issue of vendor lock-ins for RAN infrastructure. STL's ecosystem of specialists and a new approach to 5G Radio Units, will help global operators confidently speed up large-scale deployments of 4G and 5G."

"A robust global ecosystem for Open RAN components is critical to the accelerated deployment of 5G," said Marc Rouanne, EVP & Chief Network Officer, DISH Network. "The visibility and control provided at every layer by open interfaces is critical for operators to effectively manage and enhance their networks. I am extremely encouraged to see STL taking a leadership role in launching critical components for multi-band radio and other solutions for the Open RAN ecosystem," he added.

Qii.AI and Skydio Enter Technology Partnership to Advance AI for Automated Infrastructure Inspections

Qii.AI | September 08, 2022

Qii.AI, the provider of digital inspection software for infrastructure, announced today that it is partnering with Skydio, the leading U.S. drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight, to make drone-powered inspection more efficient and effective for customers across North America. Drones are powerful and cost-effective tools for inspection, and autonomy is the key to deploying these solutions for safe and reliable operation. Skydio's adaptive scanning software, Skydio 3D Scan™, extends the company's groundbreaking autonomous flight engine with advanced artificial intelligence (AI) skills that automate photographic data collection and mapping tasks ranging from infrastructure asset inspection to crime and accident scene reconstruction. Through this integration, customers using Skydio 3D Scan™ software will now be able to utilize Qii.AI's computer-assisted detection and quantification of corrosion-related defects. This integration will make inspection of large, complex structures significantly more efficient, while reducing the time required by inspectors to identify and classify defects. "Skydio's computer vision navigation and autonomous data capture capabilities, combined with the Qii system's automatic corrosion, crack, and defect detection algorithms, are a leap forward in remote digital inspection possibilities." Qii.AI CEO, Michael H. Cohen Earlier this year, Qii.AI and Skydio demonstrated the power of this integration, enabling the automatic detection and quantification of corrosion on naval ship hulls for the Canadian Department of National Defense in Halifax, Canada. During the day-long demonstration, Skydio's drones captured data from two naval ships, using Skydio 3D Scan to capture the data used to create digital twins of both ships before seamlessly importing the models and data through the Skydio Cloud API into the Qii system for auto-detection, classification, and quantification of visible corrosion. Commenting further on the agreement, Qii.AI's Cohen, said "Skydio is the clear leader in the small inspection drone market and a natural fit for Qii.AI's computer vision technology. We're proud and excited to be collaborating with such a great team and thrilled with the success of our joint-demonstration with the Canadian Department of National Defense."
