Billion 4G/LTE Outdoor VPN Routers are the New Backhauls of LoRa Meters for Remote Reading and Billing

Del

Billion Electric, the leading global telecommunication technology and IoT solutions provider, introduces an outstanding integration between LoRa smart meters and its high-performance 4G/LTE Outdoor SIM Embedded VPN Router – BiPAC 4700ZU. Incorporated with the latest 4G/LTE technology, dual-polarized MIMO antenna, VPN, and IP67 enclosure, BiPAC 4700ZU enables automatic electricity meter reading and billing solution in rural mountains by connecting the LoRa-based smart meters to the utility company for automatic control.

To control the electricity that is supplied to the households in rural mountain areas, the utility company installed Billion 4700ZU Outdoor 4G/LTE Routers, serving as the backhaul to transmit data collected from each LoRa meters in households to the utility company’s Central Metering Control System. Based on the data, the system could automatically read, activate and deactivate the identified smart meters. By connecting the meter reading, controlling, and billing process to the Internet, the utility company was able to reduce the financial expense on hiring labors to record the reading manually.

Featuring IP67 rugged enclosure and a broad range of operating temperature from -40°C-60°C/-40°F-140°F, BiPAC 4700ZU can endure the most challenging weathers and environments. Integrating with the 4G/LTE and optimal MIMO antenna, BiPAC 4700ZU can maximize LTE service coverage with data rate up to 100Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink. BiPAC 4700ZU can be flexibly positioned on any exterior wall, chimneys, or poles with the mounting kit.

BiPAC 4700ZU also supports robust VPN including IPSec/PPTP/L2TP/GRE, allowing users to establish private encryption tunnels over the public Internet to secure billing data transmission. “Through the implementation of BiPAC 4700ZU and the LoRa metering system, the grid company could access to the prepaid billing data and activate the household electricity supply in real time. BiPAC 4700ZU not only enhanced the traditional metering and billing system, but also helped the grid company to improve the efficiency of their service distribution process and corporate competitiveness”, said William Lee, the Sensor Product Manager of Billion Electric Co., Ltd.

Smiths Detection Technology Deployed for NATO Summit Security17.7.2018 08:17Pressemelding

Smiths Detection technology supported the security operations surrounding the NATO Summit in Brussels on 11th/12th July. A range of solutions were deployed by the European Commission Counter-Terrorism Unit and Belgian Federal Police at Brussels Airport and various key locations around the city to detect potential threats from explosives, chemicals and radiation. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180717005386/en/ Smiths Detection Technology Deployed for NATO Summit Security Three different types of trace detectors were used during the summit: TRACE-PRO to reveal traces of explosives on people, vehicles and surfaces; LCD personal chemical detectors; and the portable, desktop IONSCAN 600, which detects and identifies trace amounts of both explosives and narcotics. Hand-held RadSeeker and HazMatID Elite systems were also deployed to detect and identify any nuclear threat materials as well as liquid and solid chemica

The European Project AMable Launches Its First Open Call17.7.2018 08:00Pressemelding

The European Project AMable has launched its First Open Call to find innovative ideas for additively manufactured products. The selected teams will be supported by AMable to develop an idea towards a final product by offering the services across all steps from design to finish. As a Factories of the Future (FoF) project participating in I4MS (ICT for Manufacturing SMEs) and with the support of the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, the aim of AMable project is to accelerate the uptake of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies; from design to manufacture for functional parts throughout the European Union. AMable is creating a digital framework to provide impartial access to the best European AM knowledge to support this adoption. This knowledge will be offered as advanced and tailored services to assist SMEs in the uptake of AM and include technological, business and training services. For this Open Call, the European Project is looking for original ideas

More Than Half of Sub-Saharan Africa to Be Connected to Mobile by 2025, Finds New GSMA Study17.7.2018 07:00Pressemelding

More than half the population of Sub-Saharan Africa will be subscribed to a mobile service by 2025, according to the latest edition of the GSMA’s Mobile Economy report series, published at the GSMA ‘Mobile 360 – Africa’ event being held in Kigali this week. The new report forecasts that there will be 634 million unique mobile subscribers1 across Sub-Saharan Africa by 2025, equivalent to 52 per cent of the population, up from 444 million (44 per cent) at the end of last year. The report also calculates that the mobile ecosystem will add more than $150 billion in value to Sub-Saharan Africa’s economy by 2022, equivalent to almost 8 per cent of regional GDP. “For many citizens across the region, particularly those living in rural areas, a mobile phone is not just a communications device but also the primary channel for getting online and a vital tool for improving their lives,” commented John Giusti, Chief Regulatory Officer at the GSMA. “More needs to be done to extend connectivity to th

Norsk Titanium Marks Milestone in U.S. Production17.7.2018 07:00Pressemelding

The University of Notre Dame Turbomachinery Laboratory (NDTL), Norsk Titanium US, Inc. (Norsk), Pratt & Whitney and TURBOCAM International are collaborating to develop and test additively manufactured turbomachinery components. This collaboration will focus on exploring the applicability of Norsk’s Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) material to turbomachinery applications. As part of this effort, NDTL will test an additively manufactured integrally bladed rotor (IBR) produced and inspected to meet the applicable quality specifications used in Pratt & Whitney’s current turbomachinery components. The team has completed the initial phase of testing, with TURBOCAM International conducting machining trials of Norsk’s RPD™ material, and Pratt & Whitney successfully inspecting the material to the same specification as forged turbomachinery components. The material’s manufacturing qualities were evaluated for applicability to TURBOCAM’s precision milling processes. “We were very pleased with the

GSMA Finds That Consumers in Developing Countries Are Hard Hit by High Spectrum Prices17.7.2018 06:00Pressemelding

Better spectrum pricing policies are needed in developing countries to improve the economic and social welfare of the billions of people that remain unconnected to mobile broadband services, according to a new report, ‘Spectrum Pricing in Developing Countries’, released by the GSMA today at the Mobile 360 – Africa conference in Kigali. The study reveals that spectrum prices in developing countries are, on average, more than three times higher than in developed countries, when income is taken into account. This high spectrum pricing is a major roadblock to increasing mobile penetration. Authored by GSMA Intelligence, the study also found that governments are playing an active role in increasing spectrum prices to maximise state revenues from spectrum licensing. High spectrum prices are linked to countries with high levels of sovereign debt, and alarmingly average reserve prices in spectrum auctions are more than five times higher in developing countries than in developed, once income is

NEC and dotData Use AI to Accelerate Data Science for the SMBC Group17.7.2018 04:38Pressemelding

NEC Corporation (NEC) (TOKYO:6701) and dotData, Inc., a Silicon Valley venture in the automation of data science, today announced the provision and full operation of “dotData” platform for the Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group, Inc. (SMBC Group) in order to strengthen the Group’s analytical capabilities. In recent years, the need for big data analytics has been growing rapidly. However, there is also an increasing shortage of data scientists to handle this need. In order to address this issue, dotData automates data science processes through artificial intelligence (AI). dotData platform is now commercially available globally. NEC has obtained an exclusive license from dotData to provide this software across Japan. Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, NEC and the dotData team have actively worked to incorporate AI into banking operations in order to create new service offerings since 2016. Following this success, the SMBC Group is now expanding the provision of dotData platform throughou
