ASOCS Ltd., a pioneer in RAN virtualization, today unveiled its in-building virtual Radio Access Networks (vRAN) solution. The solution delivers on the promise of the Network Function Virtualization (NFV) initiative carried out by carriers around the globe aiming to virtualize network services currently being carried out by proprietary, dedicated hardware. Virtualizing baseband processing in the Radio Access Network (RAN) is one of the hardest elements to virtualize due to its real-time nature. ASOCS’ virtual base station (vBS) runs software performing real-time baseband processing on Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) servers using a cloud-architecture. This fully virtualized solution allows for dynamic and automated allocation of baseband resources based on actual data traffic, eliminating the need to over provision base stations to meet peak demand. The vBS is designed for networks at any scale, from nationwide outdoor networks to campus and in-building networks. Wireless users are consuming more data than ever before, which is straining the carrier networks. With over 80% of mobile usage happening indoors, more and more carriers are adding capacity inside buildings- at the edge of their network. Using base stations connected to Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), carriers are delivering enhanced services to their users where most data is being consumed. To address this need, ASOCS has integrated its vBS with DAS solutions creating an and end-to-end vRAN solution. “The value of bringing capacity into the enterprise in the form of a virtual Base Station is two-fold. First, being a cloud based on standard IT-servers, the solution looks and feels like any other IT cloud, and is simple to implement and manage. Second, it creates an open mobile edge cloud (OMEC) for carriers or enterprises to offer applications that either consume a lot of bandwidth, require low-latency performance, or can terminate locally without traveling back to the core network,” said Eran Bello, Chief Marketing Officer, ASOCS. “The pre-integrated ASOCS’s vRAN solution and cellular processing capabilities with HPE’s OpenNFV platform and IT telecommunications expertise enables communications service providers (CSPs) a fast transition to a multi-vendor NFV solution at their network edge, where a great deal of capacity is consumed,” said Werner Schaefer, vice president & general manager, NFV, HPE. ASOCS is demonstrating its vRAN solution at MWC2017 at stand 2E60, Hall 2 in the IMA Pavilion and at the HPE OpenNFV Partner Showcase at stand 3E11, Hall 3.

Home > Press > 'Lossless' metamaterial could boost efficiency of lasers and other light-based devices Abstract: Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a material that could reduce signal losses in photonic devices. The advance has the potential to boost the efficiency of various light-based technologies including fiber optic communication systems, lasers and photovoltaics. The discovery addresses one of the biggest challenges in the field of photonics: minimizing loss of optical (light-based) signals in devices known as plasmonic metamaterials. Plasmonic metamaterials are materials engineered at the nanoscale to control light in unusual ways. They can be used to develop exotic devices ranging from invisibility cloaks to quantum computers. But a problem with metamaterials is that they typically contain metals that absorb energy from light and convert it into heat. As a result, part of the optical signal gets wasted, lowering the efficiency. In a recent study published in Nature Communications, a team of photonics researchers led by electrical engineering professor Shaya Fainman at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering demonstrated a way to make up for these losses by incorporating into the metamaterial something that emits light -- a semiconductor. "We're offsetting the loss introduced by the metal with gain from the semiconductor. This combination theoretically could result in zero net absorption of the signal -- a 'lossless' metamaterial," said Joseph Smalley, an electrical engineering postdoctoral scholar in Fainman's group and the first author of the study. In their experiments, the researchers shined light from an infrared laser onto the metamaterial. They found that depending on which way the light is polarized -- which plane or direction (up and down, side to side) all the light waves are set to vibrate -- the metamaterial either reflects or emits light. "This is the first material that behaves simultaneously as a metal and a semiconductor. If light is polarized one way, the metamaterial reflects light like a metal, and when light is polarized the other way, the metamaterial absorbs and emits light of a different 'color' like a semiconductor," Smalley said. Researchers created the new metamaterial by first growing a crystal of the semiconductor material, called indium gallium arsenide phosphide, on a substrate. They then used high-energy ions from plasma to etch narrow trenches into the semiconductor, creating 40-nanometer-wide rows of semiconductor spaced 40 nanometers apart. Finally, they filled the trenches with silver to create a pattern of alternating nano-sized stripes of semiconductor and silver. "This is a unique way to fabricate this kind of metamaterial," Smalley said. Nanostructures with different layers are often made by depositing each layer separately one on top of another, "like a stack of papers on a desk," Smalley explained. But the semiconductor material used in this study (indium gallium arsenide phosphide) can't just be grown on top of any substrate (like silver), otherwise it will have defects. "Rather than creating a stack of alternating layers, we figured out a way to arrange the materials side by side, like folders in a filing cabinet, keeping the semiconductor material defect-free." As a next step, the team plans to investigate how much this metamaterial and other versions of it could improve photonic applications that currently suffer from signal losses. This work was supported by the Office of Naval Research Multidisciplinary Research Initiative (N00014-13-1-0678), the National Science Foundation (ECE3972 and ECCS-1229677), the National Science Foundation Center for Integrated Access Networks (EEC-0812072), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (N66001-12-1-4205) and the Cymer Corporation.

PETALUMA, Calif., Feb. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX) today announced unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $131.8 million, an increase of 25.5% compared to $105.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. “We ended 2016 with record revenues for the fourth quarter as well as the full year 2016 which marks our fourth consecutive year of growth. We expect this growth to continue as service providers increasingly deploy transformative solutions from our software defined access portfolio,” said Carl Russo, Calix, Inc. President and CEO. “However, as we invested in our services offerings we experienced higher than expected costs in our turnkey network improvement projects, particularly as activity accelerated to meet project schedules, resulting in earnings coming in below our expectations,” added Russo. The GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $11.5 million, or $(0.23) per basic and fully diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $9.5 million, or $(0.19) per basic and fully diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015. “We can see a finite period through the first half of 2017 during which these higher costs will continue to impact a part of our services business,” said William Atkins, Calix, Inc. Executive Vice President and CFO. “We also see strong revenue momentum and an array of opportunities with both existing and prospective customers heading into 2017. We will continue to focus resources on our growth initiatives including the software defined access portfolio while optimizing our cost structure, as planned, in the traditional systems and services segment,” added Atkins. The company’s non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $6.8 million, or $(0.14) per fully diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $1.7 million, or $(0.03) per fully diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015. A reconciliation of our fourth quarter 2016 operating results from GAAP to non-GAAP is provided in this release. Calix is providing forward-looking estimates for Q1 2017 and full year 2017 results as follows: The company is projecting revenue growth of 10% or more relative to 2016 and projecting to achieve a lower net loss on a non-GAAP basis for the full year compared to 2016. The company estimates that GAAP EPS will be approximately $0.10 lower for Q1 2017 and approximately $0.34 lower for full year 2017 due to the inclusion of stock-based compensation and amortization of intangibles.

Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release to supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP cost of revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP loss before provision of income taxes and non-GAAP basic and diluted income (loss) per share. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance the reader's understanding of the Company's operating performance as they primarily exclude certain non-cash charges for stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, and non-recurring acquisition-related costs, which the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. Management believes that the non-GAAP measures used in this press release provide investors with important perspectives into the Company's ongoing business performance and management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate financial results and to establish operational goals. The presentation of these non-GAAP measures is not meant to be a substitute for results presented in accordance with GAAP, but rather should be evaluated in conjunction with those GAAP results. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to the most directly comparable GAAP results is provided in this press release. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
News Article | February 28, 2017
"A number of initiatives has been taken to reduce latency in the internet, and there are several causes of delays. What we have looked at specifically is something called "Bufferbloat" and how this creates latency, primarily in home networks. It is often in home networks that latency occurs, because the last-mile capacity to the home is lower than in the rest of the internet. This means there is a risk that the link becomes congested, which leads to queues being formed." The internet consists of a number of networks linked by routers, where data pass through to different parts of the Internet. A router can be compared to a road junction where data packets, like cars at a crossroads, form queues and are waved on according to predefined rules. It is perfectly natural that temporary queues are formed due to short-term variations in the traffic. What creates problems is when the queues fill up and stay that way for a longer time. Then traffic comes to a halt and the result is delays, so-called Bufferbloat. "The rules regulating how data is let through vary in different types of routers. You could say that there are different types of queueing systems, and we have studied how the flow of data across networks is influenced by these different systems." The "first come first served" principle (also called "first in – first out") is the simplest principle to use to regulate a queue, and is the most common one today. This principle means that the router lets through data packets in the order they arrive. But more advanced principles can give better performance, for example, the so-called fairness principle. This involves a queueing system that gives priority on the basis of a number of factors, and which mixes data flows from distinct sources, allowing the flows to proceed concurrently through the network instead of having to wait for each other. "What we have seen is that the traditional "first in – first out" principle is one of the factors causing latency, and that the fairness principle reduces latency considerably. With this "fairness queueing", the capacity between different users and applications is shared. We have developed an algorithm based on this principle that works well in WiFi networks, and which contains an automatic prioritisation of the small data packets that are important for a quick response, such as DNS lookups and game traffic." Together with researchers in the USA and Poland, Toke Høiland-Jørgensen has developed software that anyone can install in their home routers to reduce latency. "We have worked deliberately to make our research results available for all to use. Our algorithm, for instance, is included in software for home routers that anyone can install in their router to reduce latency in their home network."
