The explosive growth of mobile data combined with emerging machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity means that mobile operators need native virtualization solutions now after having seen that the node based ported virtualization fails to create flexible, scalable, and easy-to-deploy packet cores. Brocade’s highly-differentiated vEPC solution has unique architectural attributes that leverage cloud computing, network virtualization, and software networking technologies to deliver higher scale and efficiency on industry-standard x86-based servers. The software can scale from a single microprocessing core to a rack of servers depending on the use case as it maps dimensions of mobile workload independently to cloud resources, while maintaining the capability to integrate with traditional node-based EPC architectures.
Combined with Mavenir’s existing Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) offerings, the vEPC is a key part of a mobile edge computing and IOT strategy. Supporting low-latency use cases at the network edge enables service providers and enterprises to connect mobile and IoT devices, data centers, and public or private clouds.
“We are building a 5G architecture with control plane-user plane separation and stateless VNFs. The small footprint, combined with a highly scalable architecture and built-in HSS, is ideal for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), private LTE and industrial IoT spaces,” said Ashok Khuntia, GM and EVP of Mavenir’s Access Products division. “When bundled with our virtualized radio access network product, Mavenir offers a complete, fully virtualized end-to-end next generation core and access network.”
“As the industry transitions towards LTE and 5G, there is a critical and growing requirement for a new, more distributed network architecture and that includes a flexible, microservices-based EPC that allows for the independent scaling of control, data and users in response to different workloads. It provides inherent capability for network slicing,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO of Mavenir. “We aim to be a key provider of next-generation network services, with a path to 5G and edge computing for our customers.”
Kohli added, “With this acquisition, Mavenir continues to deliver the innovation and differentiated services that customers expect from us.”
In connection with the transaction, Mavenir is hiring certain Brocade employees associated with the vEPC business. This team will be working closely together with Mavenir to support customers of Brocade vEPC as well as deliver differentiable end-to-end solutions in future to ensure continued support for customers.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Mavenir is the leader in accelerating and redefining network transformation for Service Providers, by offering a comprehensive product portfolio across every layer of the network infrastructure stack. From 4G and 5G application/service layers to packet core and RAN – Mavenir leads the way in evolved, cloud-native networking solutions enabling innovative and secure experiences for end users.
Through its industry first VoLTE, VoWiFi, Advanced Messaging (RCS), Multi-ID, Visual Voicemail and Cloud RAN solutions, and serving 350+ CSPs across 3.5 billion subscribers, Mavenir’s platform enables Service Providers to successfully deliver their next generation vision today and realize new revenue streams and operational efficiencies. www.mavenir.com.

Alibaba Cloud Expands European Presence With UK Data Centres22.10.2018 08:00 | Pressemelding
Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, has today announced the opening of two availability zones in the UK, in addition to its Frankfurt and Dubai data centres launched in 2016. This expansion not only extends Alibaba Cloud’s capabilities within Europe, but also serves to highlight the provider’s ongoing commitment to the region. Alibaba Cloud’s local footprint is steadily increasing, with data centres across three EMEA locations: Frankfurt, Dubai, and now London. Answering an increase in demand for Alibaba Cloud services across the EMEA region, the pair of high performance availability zones will enable organisations in the region to accelerate the upgrade of their digital infrastructure enabling more efficient digital transformation initiatives. Business continuity is also a clear focus, with dual availability zones offering stronger disaster recovery capabilities. The London location also boasts 24/7 on-site support – including both security and engineering – as we
New Three-Year Data for Janssen’s TREMFYA®▼ (Guselkumab) Demonstrates Well Maintained Rates of Skin Clearance in Patients with Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis22.10.2018 08:00 | Pressemelding
The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced today new long-term data from the open-label period of the VOYAGE 1 clinical study. The data demonstrate well maintained rates of skin clearance with TREMFYA®▼ (guselkumab) treatment at Week 52 (1 year) and Week 156 (3 years) among adult patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.1 The findings, presented at the 37th Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference in Las Vegas, USA, showed nearly 83 percent of patients receiving guselkumab in the Phase 3 VOYAGE 1 study maintained at least a 90 percent improvement in the Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI 90), or near complete skin clearance, and an Investigator’s Global Assessment (IGA) score of cleared (0) or minimal disease (1) at Week 156.1 “These findings are impressive as they demonstrate consistency in high rates of skin clearance with guselkumab treatment at Weeks 48, 100 and 156, with every eight-week maintenance therapy,” said Andrew Blauvelt, MD, MBA, President,
Outline of New ESMO Guidelines Indicates Inclusion of FOTIVDA®▼ (Tivozanib) for Patients with Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma22.10.2018 07:51 | Pressemelding
EUSA Pharma (EUSA) welcomes the news that FOTIVDA®▼ (tivozanib) is expected to be included in the upcoming European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) clinical practice guidelines for advanced renal cell carcinoma (aRCC), anticipated to be published at the end of this year.1 The outline of the new proposed guidelines was presented on 19th October at the annual ESMO 2018 Congress in Munich, Germany, and indicated that tivozanib will be included as a first-line treatment recommendation for aRCC clear cell histology patients. The update will position tivozanib as a treatment standard for good (or favourable) risk patients with a Class IIa recommendation, and a treatment option for intermediate risk patients with a Class IIb recommendation.1 The indication of inclusion of tivozanib in the ESMO guidelines follows the grant of a European Commission (EC) licence in August 2017 for this oral, once-daily,a potent selective vascular endothelial growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (

Zscaler Extends Cloud DLP Service with Inline Exact Data Match for Massive Data Sets Covering Users Globally22.10.2018 06:30 | Pressemelding
Zenith Live Europe – Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZS), the leader in cloud security, today announced inline Exact Data Match (EDM) with native SSL inspection as part of its advanced Cloud Data Loss Prevention (DLP) service. The inline EDM capability extends the Zscaler™ cloud platform to protect against the loss of sensitive information across all users and branches with more precision while reducing the number of false positives to near zero. This service is provided in the Zscaler cloud, providing the capacity of one billion data points per customer across 100 data centers globally. Traditional DLP appliances that sit in the data center are expensive and resource-intensive, and their protection can be subpar, often failing to alert an organization until after data has been compromised. Zscaler’s inline EDM with native SSL inspection blocks sensitive information before it leaves the network. In the first half of 2018, the Zscaler cloud platform blocked an average of 800,000 SSL-encrypted tr
