Elisa Boosts RF Network Performance and Quality with Spectrum-NET

Del

Spectrum Effect™, a pioneer in RF spectrum analytics, today announced a successful milestone in the trial of its Spectrum-NET™ machine learning solution with Elisa Estonia.

Spectrum-NET automatically detects, characterizes, locates and assesses the impact of external and unintended internal RF interference in mobile networks. Spectrum-NET operates throughout multi-vendor LTE and UMTS networks on a continual basis without service interruption or dependency on external probes.

“The successful trial utilizing Spectrum-NET to analyze Elisa’s mobile network uncovered numerous instances of external and unintended internal RF interference, including previously undetectable passive intermodulation (PIM) interference,” stated Kristo Kork, Head of Radio Access Networks and Infrastructure at Elisa. “The elimination of external interference from our network enables Elisa to realize the full value of our spectrum and continue to deliver on our promise to exceed customers’ expectations.”

“Elisa is a very innovative operator and it’s been a great experience collaborating with their team. We are pleased to have achieved exceptional results in this trial and we are now fully focused on providing measurable benefits to mobile operators with our full-scale, global launch of Spectrum-NET later this year,” commented Spectrum Effect CEO, Frank J. DeJoy.

Spectrum Effect will demonstrate Spectrum-NET™ and select trial results in stand 7I80 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

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

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

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

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
