United Kingdom,United States : Airspan Selected for UK Smart Grid Pilot with Western Power Distribution [TendersInfo (India)]

(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Airspan Networks Inc., a leading provider of 4G broadband wireless access networks, announced today that it has been selected by Western Power Distribution (WPD) to supply a WIGRID broadband wireless access solution for the Government funded pilot of a low carbon smart grid network.

Airspan s compact pico base station, AirSynergy 2000, is to be deployed to provide secure high bandwidth wireless connections between primary and secondary power grid sub-stations in and around Milton Keynes, UK. A hierarchical wireless architecture is being adopted whereby AirSynergy 2000 base stations deliver WiGRID M2M access with integrated iBridge wireless backhaul. Airspan is also providing network design and professional services.

Barrie Stephens, Infrastructure Manager for the Surf Telecoms division of WPD, said: Being able to develop a robust telecommunication network is a critical element in our strategy, especially given the forecasted uptake in low-carbon technologies such as electric cars, heat pumps, and solar panels. Airspan s compact low power base station technology is an ideal complement to the energy saving technologies for which this pilot will pave the way.

The Milton Keynes pilot, part of WPD s low carbon project known as FALCON, is being operated on spectrum licenses granted by the regulator Ofcom to allow the trials to proceed and prove the viability of wireless control and monitoring of the electricity grid.

We are delighted to be selected by WPD and to be part of this revolutionizing pilot, commented Paul Trubridge, Airspan Vice President of Product Management. AirSynergy 2000 s high performance and compliance with WiGRID profiles will enable deployment of a smart grid solution that meets WPD s security and network integration needs. The pilot deployment in Milton Keynes serves as a blue print for the smart grid telecommunications network model in Europe and beyond.

AirSynergy 2000 is a groundbreaking pico cell, multi-standard 4G product. Its compact design ensures discrete deployments in various locations such as lamp posts, utility poles and building fronts. Most unique to the product is its integrated wireless backhaul capability, called iBridge, and the ability to self-configure, self-connect, self-heal and self-optimize when deployed.

WiGRID was recently established by the WiMAX Forum as an interoperable wireless profile for use in electricity utility networks.

Airspan products include Pico, Micro and Macro base stations, a wide variety of user devices, and advanced core network products, providing 4G LTE and WiMAX connectivity solutions operating in the 150 MHz up to 5.9 GHz bands.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
