EBlink to showcase pioneer wireless-fronthaul solution at MWC 2015

Philip Jolly - 14-janv.-2015 13:26:34
EBlink, a pioneer in wireless-fronthaul technology, will be present at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in March 2015, in Barcelona (Spain). The company’s FrontLink™58 system represents a technological breakthrough. EBlink provides solutions that are complementary to fibre-based fronthaul and essential to Cloud RAN and 5G architectures.   EBlink takes wireless fronthaul technology to the next level with unmatched field-proven performance. Thanks to EBlink’s solutions, operators are no longer forced to lay costly fibre runs or limit their new sites to locations served by fibre. Importantly, EBlink’s patented technology ensures that radio-access performance remains intact when using a wireless-fronthaul link. “Our FrontLink™58 system represents a technological breakthrough, with unequalled performance: up to 7.5Gbps CPRI on a wireless link within a 70MHz bandwidth,” explains Alain Rolland, EBlink’s founder and CEO.  “Tested and validated by operators worldwide, the FrontLink™ solution offers new possibilities to mobile carriers in their network deployment.” Christian Bittar, EBlink’s co-founder and COO, says: “We expect to double this technical performance in 2015, and again the following year. Everything indicates that mobile-network architectures will rely on fronthaul links to enable the use of those technologies essential for high-speed service (Comp, Massive MIMO, etc.). Our wireless fronthaul technology was developed with this in mind.” Analysts and major international operators now speak of wireless fronthaul as a technology that has become essential. International mobile-telecommunications operators are moving increasingly towards centralized architectures, which are more economical and provide better performance than traditional cellular network architectures. Already deployed in Asia, C-RAN/V-RAN/small cells networks are now gaining ground in North America and other parts of the world as well. These new architectures have spurred the development of fronthaul-type transmission infrastructures, which — as with backhaul systems — call for both fibre and wireless solutions. Complementary to fibre-based fronthaul, EBlink’s wireless fronthaul solutions also drive a significant reduction in deployment costs: up to 40% in most scenarios. Specifically, EBlink’s patented technology eliminates the last few hundred metres of fibre that are so costly for mobile-telecoms operators, being long and difficult to deploy. As A rising start-up in the mobile telecoms industry, EBlink continues to build partnerships with leading industrials in order to foster technological synergies and accelerate the distribution of its solutions worldwide. EBlink will be on Booth 5B73, in Hall 5, at MWC in Barcelona (in Spain), between 2 and 5 March of this year. About EBlink Founded in France in 2005, EBlink is revolutionizing the mobile-network market with a new industry standard: wireless fronthaul. Based on the founders’ vision of the evolution of mobile-telecoms networks, EBlink’s technology provides operators with an immediate solution to the growing demand for mobile multimedia applications. EBlink’s leaders have 20 years of experience in the deployment, operation and optimization of mobile networks. EBlink will be on Booth 5B73, in Hall 5, at Mobile World Congress (MWC), in Barcelona (Spain), between 2 and 5 March 2015.

SERSA launches new versatile graphics cards for industry

Philip Jolly - 06-janv.-2015 13:08:56
SERSA, a French-based company specializing in the design and development of global solutions for the industrial-electronics sector, has launched IHM Crystal-IN, a graphics card designed to enhance screen-graphic interfaces. Seeking to simplify the ergonomics of their products, industrialists are increasingly turning to colour graphic displays, with or without a touchscreen interface, which require substantial investment in software-development skills and hardware capabilities. With this in mind, and in order to meet its customers’ demands, SERSA has developed the IHM Crystal-IN graphics card. The IHM Crystal-IN graphics card is built around a powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and avoids the need to use an operating system such as Windows, Android or Linux, which, in turn, ensures increased reliability in harsh environments such as those found in industry. This autonomous solution offers a range of benefits to the user, including reduced development time and easy implementation; scalability towards a variety of graphic displays (from 3” to 10”, colour screen, glass touchscreen, etc.); an integrated Flash Player; and, finally, reduced costs. The integrated Flash Player ensures that the content is produced to the highest quality standards possible, no matter what the final resolution may be. With Flash, developers can create graphics interfaces with high-level office tools directly on any platform equipped with a Flash reader, without having to write a graphics code. Thanks to SERSA’s IHM Crystal-IN graphics card, users are finally able to make the most of the many advantages of this technology and overcome the limitations of embedded software. The solutions developed by SERSA have many applications. Indeed, SERSA’s know-how is already widely acknowledged across industries such as bakeries, pastry making, and the hospitality sector. The many SERSA card functionalities (USB, WiFi, HACCP, Control, etc.) are integrated into customers’ products according to their needs. Products may include beaters, deep-freezers, deep-fryers, hot-transfer banqueting trolleys, mixers, ovens, retarder-proving equipment, and more. To date, SERSA has equipped thousands of operational machines worldwide. About SERSA Founded in 1985, SERSA Electronique is a French-based specialist company that designs and develops global solutions for the industrial-electronics sector. The company is headquartered in Paris and has an annual turnover of €4.7 million. Offering customised and innovative studies in order to meet individual, technical requirements, SERSA guides its customers in their search for a wholesale solution all the way from the study phase to the delivery of completed, operational units. SERSA believes in a long-term, commercial-partnership approach by anticipating customer needs and providing its clients with technological innovations on an ongoing basis.

Libcast’s Online Video Platform in the limelight at BETT 2015

Philip Jolly - 05-janv.-2015 13:18:12
Libcast of France will be showcasing its Online Video Platform at BETT 2015 in London, in January. The specialist company’s innovative and versatile solution enables users to host, manage and broadcast lectures live or in streaming mode. With 200,000 users, Libcast’s technology has already been chosen by many universities and schools, including leading colleges in France and Norway. Libcast offers its customers the ability to easily publish any type of audio/video files, pictures and documents to the web, smartphones, tablets, computers, and connected TVs. Libcast’s Online Video Platform has a range of features that ensure optimal indexation, customization, monetization and analytics to engage the client entity’s audiences and assist it in deploying a successful digital strategy. Users may expand the platform’s capabilities in order to improve their experience with extensions such as Web TV, pedagogical blogs and plug-ins for education (Moodle, Blackboard, Fronter, Dokeos, etc.). Business schools, such as HEC Paris, Grenoble Management School and Bordeaux III University, have been choosing the Libcast platform, attracted more particularly by the platform’s scalability. Besides, the Libcast platform offers personalized support within a close partnership with the client entity, so as to better help it carry out a range of projects. These projects include Web TV or limited-access video portals dedicated to the broadcasting of lectures (such as Massive Online Open Courses, or MOOCs). In the past year, the Libcast platform has attracted a wide international audience. In Norway, Telemark University College (TUC) is among its users. TUC is the fourth largest university college in Norway with 6,500 students. It has four campuses and is based around the Porsgrunn site, in Southern Norway. TUC uses a broad range of video-based content and was already equipped with video-recording/video-screening equipment. The Norwegian university was looking for an easy-to-use online solution that would be ergonomic and intuitive, enabling users to host, encode and manage video content without difficulty. The chosen solution should also make it possible to subsequently broadcast the video content on internal lecture-related blogs and across TUC’s iTunesU platforms afterwards. TUC opted for Libcast’s solution after trying it out during the BETT trade show in London (UK) in January 2013, and after a European competitive bidding process that resulted in the specialist French company winning the contract. TUC chose Libcast for a range of reasons. First of all, Libcast offers a turnkey solution that includes software, support and infrastructure. Also, the Libcast interface is integrated within an SI interface, and the French company’s software application is 100% online. Furthermore, Libcast has developed an encoding engine that can process all video/audio content, as well as images and documents. Besides, Libcast’s solution features an integrated RichMedia studio as part of the application, enabling the association of video contents with presentations and documents. And the addition of subtitles, chapter headings, etc. can be done easily, in a very intuitive way, which is another advantage. Libcast has made sure that video formats are suitable and compatible for broadcasting on every screen. And the Libcast solution comes complete with accurate, graphic measurement tools. Finally, Libcast offers various other benefits, such as the ability to widen the scope of content broadcasting through new portals over time, or unlimited broadcasting traffic (in order to ensure effective control of the budget dedicated to the project). Thanks to all these versatile and innovative features, the Libcast platform was chosen by Telemark University College of Norway, as it has been by other players in industry and academia in various countries. Libcast’s freemium business model adds to the strength of its offering, since 3Gb worth of storage is made available to users, free of charge, to host their videos as soon as they have signed up for an account (and without any time constraint attached to the facility). Libcast has been attending the BETT trade show, in London, for three years, since the trade fair represents a powerful forum for international development and technological innovation, allowing exhibitors to meet the major players in education and new technologies. The company will be at BETT 2015, in January of this year (Stand C.98). About Libcast Created in 2006, Libcast is a French-based company specialising in the online hosting of video content and already has 200,000 regular users who work in industry (including video-content producers) or in academia (including students and teachers). Libcast is headquartered in Bordeaux, in the South-West of France. The company will attend the BETT trade show at EXCEL (Stand C.98, on the French Pavilion), in London (UK), between 21 and 24 January 2015.

SIVAL grows with expanded plant-sector event in Jan 2015

Marine Juillard - 24-nov.-2014 11:26:52
SIVAL, a leading European trade show for the crop-production sector, will be held from 13 to 15 January 2015 at the Angers Exhibition Centre, in Angers (Western France). As the foundation for Plants Week, this year’s show will once again be the key event in plant excellence for all sector professionals, welcoming more than 600 exhibitors and hosting a range of events. Plants Week consists of a week of events and conferences devoted to the plant sector, including Rencontres du Végétal (Plant Sector Meetings), the SIVAL trade show, the Vegepolys Symposium, and the new Vegepolys International Business Event (or VIBE). SIVAL will host several conferences, meetings and symposiums, whilst the SIVAL Forum will provide a platform for industry experts to give presentations on a variety of topics and address issues such as plant protection, evolving practices, and environmental, social and economic challenges. Vegepolys is a world-class cluster of excellence that brings together plant-sector professionals specialising in aromatic and perfumed plants, cider production, market gardening, medicinal plants, mushrooms, seeds, tobacco, tree farming, and winegrowing within the Pays de la Loire region. VIBE, the new event organised by Vegepolys, will take place on 12 and 13 January 2015, as part of the trade fair. This event is designed to bring together managers of innovative projects and international buyers, fostering dialogue during tours of the area and meetings with exhibitors and members of the Vegepolys cluster. The decision to host this event supports SIVAL’s strategy to establish itself internationally, both as Europe’s primary trade show for all plant production and as a leader in the fruit-and-vegetable sector. The SIVAL d’Or Contest, a competition to reward the most innovative projects in the field of plant-production techniques, is changing its name to the SIVAL Innovation Contest. From now on, this competition will incorporate a new Zoom Innovation (or Focus on Innovation) section, which will introduce candidates that have been preselected for the SIVAL Innovation Contest, as well as the winners of the Innovafood Contest, start-up companies in the plant sector, school and group projects, and more. Finally, the SIVAL Job Dating event will help to bring together applicants for jobs in the plant sector with the companies looking to fill the numerous vacancies that exist. Apart from the Vegepolys Symposium (already mentioned), meetings and conferences organised at the SIVAL trade show, next year, will include wine-tourism meetings organised by Interloire, the DEPHY-Ecophyto conference, the Euroviti symposium organised by the IFV, a Légumes de France conference, a conference on Winegrowing Engineering organised by ATV49meetings, and an Export/Market conference organised by the Anjou Winegrowing Federation and the region’s International Chamber of Commerce & Industry. A detailed programme, listing further events, will soon be available on the SIVAL website.

MobiWire will present Mobiprint3, the latest version of its transaction-processing terminal, at the Cartes Paris 2014 trade show, which is taking place from 4 to 6 November at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre (France). With almost 100,000 unit sales of the two previous generations of the product, MobiWire is proud to showcase its latest POS solution, which runs under Android OS. MobiWire, a recognised leader in the design, production and delivery of connected devices dedicated to cash and electronic transactions, is taking innovation a step further with Mobiprint3, its latest product. With a wide touchscreen, an Android OS, new sensors, high-performance battery life, and an ergonomic design, Mobiprint3 is the ideal POS terminal for distributors. MobiWire will present its new Mobiprint3 technology on Stand 4K028 at the Paris Cartes 2014 trade show, which is taking place from 4 to 6 November of this year at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, north of the French capital. The Mobiprint3 design is based on a smartphone architecture (GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, or HSPA), combined with a robust printer, which enables everyday transactions (cash collection, proof-of-purchase tickets, receipts, etc.) and POS data management. Adapted to, and designed primarily for, cash-payment regions in which banking services are hard to come by, Mobiprint3 replaces traditional bank accounts with cheaper mobile accounts that are particularly efficient for micro-payments. Mobiprint³ is indispensable in scenarios where physical proof of transaction is mandatory, such as air-time top-ups on mobile phones, money transfers from mobile accounts, mobile payments, and purchasing bus tickets with cash (or through an electronic transaction).
