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.

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.

UBIFRANCE helps French IT startups plug into global opportunities

Kate Riley - 11-déc.-2014 11:29:54
Fayssal Majid, IT project manager at UBIFRANCE, explains, “Smartphones will be the new platform for all companies. Companies will need to have a mobile application as well as a website in order to attract customers and maintain market share.” By 2020, the number of smartphone subscriptions is expected to more than double to 6.1 billion – almost the size of today’s global population of 6.7 billion. The IT sector is no longer a novelty market: companies of all sizes and in all sectors must integrate digital services into their offering or risk losing business.   France offers a mobile IT ecosystem that is leveraging the best of the country’s technology, services and infrastructure, not only to satisfy the domestic market but also to capture global customers. In fact, the domestic market which, in many ways, is a reflection of the country’s focus on technology, has been following the pattern of other developed countries in terms of internet-services consumption and mobile-telecoms usage: today, 54% of the French population uses the internet on their mobile device and 74% of smartphone users research products and services on their telephone.      Therefore, it should come as no surprise that France will be sending the largest national delegation to the Mobile World Congress, next year (2-5 March 2015), in Barcelona (Spain). The size of the delegation is undeniably linked to the quality of French engineering and the country’s well-organised R&D clusters, many at a regional level, which support the development of an array of independent projects.     A case in point is Systematic, a hi-tech cluster centred on the Paris region, which has helped to develop 379 projects and attracted €2 billion worth of investment over its brief history.  In fact, as Fayssal Majid, IT project manager at UBIFRANCE, explains, there are even further layers of organisation that benefit the start-up culture in France. He says, “There are start-ups that are very proud of their French roots but that are looking to expand globally. La French Tech, an initiative [launched] in collaboration with UBIFRANCE, helps them to achieve this goal.”     La French Tech is a collective project aimed at facilitating the growth and boosting the influence of French start-ups and of the country’s digital ecosystem: it has been behind the success of companies such as award-winning Citizen Sciences.      Citizen Sciences is a prime example of a French company that is innovating and pushing back technological frontiers. Citizen Sciences is pioneering applications in the field of the internet of things – the connectivity of everyday items for the purpose of improving usage and limiting human involvement – with a focus on clothing items. At the moment they are working on products that will gather multiples of data from athletes – from heart rate to specific movements – in order to improve their performance. The company was recognised as a winner of an Innovation Award at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (USA).      F Majid believes that Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress, in spring 2015, is the perfect springboard for French businesses to reach global markets. IT has become much more of a global phenomenon and F Majid believes that French companies should not only focus on the US market but also on emerging markets in Asia, South America, and Africa. He explains, “French companies have always thought about the US, but in fact there is also a lot of interest from places such as the Middle East, South-East Asia and Africa – markets that are very large and continuing to grow.”      As a global event, Mobile World Congress provides the perfect forum for introducing French companies to prospective clients from all over the world. One French company that will be joining F Majid in Barcelona is Oledcomm. This company’s products leverage lighting networks into something many might find unthinkable – wireless communication and internet services. Another French company that will be at MWC 2015 is Famoco. This company is working on a long-sought solution to various problems affecting contactless payments.      UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, has 80 offices outside France. As the partner of reference for French-based companies wishing to export, UBIFRANCE offers a complete range of services to businesses interested in expanding across the world.      For further information about Oldecomm, please go to: http://www.ubifrance.com/french-exporters-directory/company-19013-oledcomm     For further information about Famoco, please go to: http://www.ubifrance.com/french-exporters-directory/company-14629-famoco For further information about the French Pavilion at Mobile World Congress, please go to: http://mwc.ubifrance-events.com/  or  http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/Posts-10231-french-pavilion-at-mwc-2015-to-showcase-over-100-cutting-edge-players     For further information about Mobile World Congress, please go to: http://www.mobileworldcongress.com/

Lucibel will also present its new Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) concept designed for use in museums, galleries and showrooms. For the first time, Lucibel has combined Li-Fi technology with LED lighting to transform existing LED lighting elements into Li-Fi emitters that can then remotely transmit multimedia content (sound, video, geolocation, etc.) to a tablet or smartphone. Using an indoor geolocation application on a tablet device, visitors have direct and automatic access to interactive content corresponding to the object on display. This virtual guide gives traditional visits a whole new dimension, making them more natural and intuitive. Lucibel’s solution is an integral part of the LED lighting element and requires no additional infrastructure or energy consumption. It can be featured in multiple applications, and reflects the company’s ambition to offer more than a simple lighting function, allowing customers to benefit from the many opportunities proposed by LED technology. The multiple advantages of LEDs have made them the preferred technology for new lighting sources. LED lighting efficiency reduces energy consumption by up to 80% compared to traditional technologies, increases operating life by up to 20 times, and can be controlled remotely or programmed to interact with its surroundings. Further advantages of LED technology include its homogenous, flicker-free luminous flux, excellent colour rendering, immediate illumination, lack of sensitivity to on/off switching cycles, and a wide range of integration and customisation possibilities. The company develops and produces the majority of its products in its own factories in France, selecting the best components on the market and ensuring that technical aspects are constantly being improved. Lucibel focuses on the professional market segments in which its solutions contribute maximum added value to the customer, such as hotels and restaurants, offices and industry, public authorities, and retail. As well as guaranteeing technical performance and energy efficiency, Lucibel also designs specific solutions adapted to client specifications and whose benefits go beyond lighting functions alone. Such benefits include incomparable product or site enhancement to boost customer visits and sales activity, a quality of light that improves well-being and productivity of employees, intelligent management of light sources to optimise energy consumption, and new functionalities such as the transmission of wireless data to enrich visitor experience. Lucibel has a dedicated London-based team that works closely with clients on their projects, advising and informing them about relevant applicable standards and undertaking return on investment studies. The team can also carry out studies into lighting, 3D simulations, and thermal dissipation.
