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.

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.
