IEEE-SA, ETSI agree to continue standards collaboration
The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) have renewed the memorandum of understanding (MOU) that calls for collaboration between the two standards-setting organizations.ETSI sets standards for information and communications technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, aeronautical, broadcast, and Internet technologies. It is officially recognized by the European Union as a European Standards Organization. The not-for-profit association comprises more than 750 member companies and organizations, drawn from 62 countries across 5 continents.The IEEE-SA is the standards-setting body within IEEE. It is responsible for more than 900 active standards, with more than 500 additional standards under development.“ETSI is the ideal partner for IEEE-SA’s continued progress on expanding cooperation between technical committees with a global reach,” said Konstantinos Karachalios, managing director for IEEE-SA. “Sharing information is the key factor here. Collaboration between governing bodies is top of mind. It’s all part of our vision for widespread adoption of globally relevant standards and our commitment to work cohesively with standards organizations around the world.”“The framework for coordination between technical groups will greatly benefit industry as it increasingly relies on standards for interoperability,” said Luis Jorge Romero, director-general of ETSI. “This agreement will allow ETSI representatives to become more knowledgeable about IEEE activities and vice versa, of course.”
ADVA Optical makes strategic investment in Saguna Networks
ADVA Optical Networking (FSE: ADV) says it has made a $1 million strategic investment in Saguna Networks and its Content Optimization Delivery Systems (CODS) technology.Saguna Networks' approach to optimizing content delivery in mobile backhaul infrastructures focuses upon transporting content directly from the mobile network base station straight to subscribers. The start-up claims this approach is unique within the mobile industry, and enables operators to significantly improve resource use, enhance user quality of experience (QoE), and drive greater profitability by monetization of content."Mobile networks are evolving at a phenomenal pace, one that demands mobile providers keep pushing the boundaries of what's possible," said Brian Protiva, chief executive officer of ADVA Optical Networking. "Based on the strong working relationship we've developed with Saguna Networks, our $1 million investment clearly highlights our belief in its technology and in our shared vision for mobile networks. People want mobile content wherever they are and whenever they need it. To achieve this, cell-site caching and mobile optimization are critical. This not only guarantees a greater user experience but also enables mobile operators to harness their existing infrastructures and drive profitability. That's why we're combining our technologies to build a totally unique solution."Saguna Network's technology works by loading the integrated cache servers in the cell-site gateway or network interface device with popular content. Since this content is already on the radio access network, the system saves time, bandwidth, and money by enabling mobile operators to disperse traffic efficiently and ensuring mobile users access the data from the base station cache servers instead of directing them to the main cache servers in the mobile core. This translates into better user QoE, and saves operators from the need to continually increase capacity by reducing popular content delivery traffic. It could reduce costs by as much as 70%, while enabling monetization by managed content revenues, the company claims."ADVA Optical Networking's investment in our company and our technology clearly indicates a shared vision for the development of mobile networks," commented Lior Fite, chief executive officer of Saguna Networks. "The fierce growth in mobile data demands new solutions, new ways of both addressing users' expectations and operators' needs to grow revenue. Our CODS technology brings cloud and over the top services directly into the mobile base station and this new partnership with ADVA Optical Networking creates a carrier-grade platform that delivers the right services exactly where they're needed – close to the mobile user."With this investment, on a fully diluted basis, ADVA Optical Networking acquired a 10% stake in Saguna Networks, with the investment being accounted for by the equity method in ADVA Optical Networking's consolidated IFRS financial statements.
Alcatel-Lucent completes 1-Gbps broadband network in Bristol, TN
Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) say it has helped provide fiber-based 1-Gbps broadband service to all 33,000 residential and business electric customers of Bristol Tennessee Essential Services (BTES).Powered by Alcatel-Lucent’s GPON technology, Bristol’s fiber to the premises (FTTP) network will accommodate speeds of up to 1 Gbps, which is 10X faster than the US Federal Communication Commission’s National Broadband Plan calling for 100-Mbps speeds for 100 million households nationwide by 2020."Bristol now has one of the fastest, totally built out networks in the United States," said Dr. Michael Browder, CEO of BTES. "To give an example of how fast, you can download about two hours of video or upwards of 200 songs in just six seconds. For our residential customers, that means one person in the household can download a movie, while another is playing an online game, while another is watching an HDTV program – all without slowing down any of the activities. For our business customers, it opens the way for transporting and accessing 'big data,' which is critical for economic development of the area."Local anchor institutions, such as schools, also will benefit. For example, an elementary school located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains is combining SMART Board Technology and BTES’s gigabit service to offer virtual field trips to learn about other parts of the world. Recently, a class of 20 eight-year-olds 'travelled' to Egypt to learn about the pyramids assisted by their own on-site tour guide.The FTTP network uses Alcatel-Lucent’s GPON-enabled 7342 ISAM FTTU optical line terminals (OLTs) and optical network terminals (ONTs). BTES’s OLTs connect to a 10-Gbps backbone via Alcatel-Lucent’s 7450 ESS switches and are aggregated through a pair of 7750 BSR routers to 10 Gbps of Internet capacity. BTES’s ONTs are capable of providing advanced IPTV video services along with traditional cable television, telephone, and up to 1 Gbps of Internet bandwidth.
