Following a strategic review of Global Services, there will be a two-year restructuring of its operations to create a simpler and leaner operating model. Technology trends create the opportunity to evolve Global Services as a digital business, driving innovation on the cloud-based platforms that deliver Global Services' solutions, with its global network at the core. Having successfully steered Global Services towards its next evolution as a digital business, Alvarez feels the time is right for someone else to lead the division. Bas Burger said: "Global Services has developed world-leading products and services. This, combined with our strong relationships with our customers, puts us in a strong position to enable the digital transformation of their businesses. I look forward to continuing to build this position, deliver on our strategy and drive growth in Global Services' strategic portfolio of networking, cloud-based Unified Collaboration, hybrid cloud services and security." Gavin Patterson, chief executive BT Group said: "I would like to thank Luis for the contributions he made to the company since he joined 18 years ago. He has helped to transform the Global Services business during this time, delivering very high levels of support for our customers, while evolving our products and services to seize upon technology changes and new opportunities that lay ahead. "Technology trends mean we can now be less dependent on owning physical local network assets around the world, giving us the opportunity to transform Global Services into a more focussed digital business that can deliver using cloud-based services. This is exactly what Bas will set out to achieve in his new role leading the business, and I am confident that he will drive Global Services forward." Dutch native, Bas Burger (age 46) will lead the Global Services team and ensure that the very high levels of support received by its customers continue to improve. Before joining BT in 2008, Burger was executive president and part of the management committee of Getronics NV. There he ran global sales, channels and partnerships and supported and developed their international business. He was also CEO and Managing Director of KPN Entercom Solutions, NV. Burger holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Bradford, UK.

Optical networks are undergoing significant changes, fueled by the exponential growth of traffic due to multimedia services and by the increased uncertainty in predicting the sources of this traffic due to the ever changing models of content providers over the Internet. The change has already begun: simple on-off modulation of signals, which was adequate for bit rates up to 10 Gb/s, has given way to much more sophisticated modulation schemes for 100 Gb/s and beyond. The next bottleneck is the 10-year-old division of the optical spectrum into a fixed "wavelength grid," which will no longer work for 400 Gb/s and above, heralding the need for a more flexible grid. Once both transceivers and switches become flexible, a whole new elastic optical networking paradigm is born. In this article we describe the drivers, building blocks, architecture, and enabling technologies for this new paradigm, as well as early standardization efforts. © 2012 IEEE.

Together with university research partner King's College London, Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) and BT have signed a multi-year collaboration agreement on 5G testing and development. King's College contributes with low-latency use cases and specialized knowledge in communication technologies, robotics and haptic control. The collaboration will focus on creating 5G use cases in commercial and consumer markets, with particular focus on mission-critical services such as medical applications. It will involve research into the technical and economic aspects of key 5G-enabling technologies. With the ambition to be first to market with 5G services in the UK, BT has worked with Ericsson to build a 5G Proof of Concept Center at the BT Labs in Adastral Park, Ipswich. With access to the 5G for Europe core network - linking multiple centers and universities across Europe - Ericsson and BT are testing the network architecture needed to most efficiently deliver commercial 5G services. Howard Watson, CEO, BT Technology, Service & Operations, and BT Group CIO, says: "The initial focus of the collaboration is on Proof of Concept solutions and trials of services needing both high availability and low latency - both key features of the forthcoming 5G technology." In 2016, BT bought EE, the United Kingdom's leading 4G network provider. Together, we have the opportunity to build on our existing infrastructure to create a truly converged fixed and mobile network. We look forward to working with Ericsson and Kings College London as we examine the possibilities of 5G, and what it can deliver in terms of flexibility, scalability and the high bandwidths that our customers will require in the future." Anders Lindblad, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit IT & Cloud Products, says:"5G is the foundation for expanding the potential to all Industries.  The cooperation with BT to trial services using 5G technology demonstrates Ericsson's commitment to drive market demand and adoption. By establishing network slices in the context of 5G will be like virtual networks on-demand, and will be crucial for the mission-critical services being trialed." A demonstration of these capabilities will be on display outside Ericsson's Hall 2 at Mobile World Congress. BT's purpose is to use the power of communications to make a better world. It is one of the world's leading providers of communications services and solutions, serving customers in 180 countries.

Diverticulosis of the colon is frequently found on routine colonoscopy, and the incidence of diverticular disease and its complications appears to be increasing. The role of colonoscopy in managing this disease is still controversial. Colonoscopy plays a key role in managing diverticular bleeding. Several techniques have been effectively used in this field, but band ligation seems to be the best in preventing rebleeding. Colonoscopy is also effective in posing a correct differential diagnosis with other forms of chronic colitis involving colon harbouring diverticula (in particular with Crohn᾿s disease or Segmental Colitis Associated with Diverticulosis). The role of colonoscopy to confirm diagnosis of uncomplicated diverticulitis is still under debate, since the risk of advanced colonic neoplasia in patients admitted for acute uncomplicated diverticulitis is not increased as compared to the average-risk population. On the contrary, colonoscopy is mandatory if patients complain of persistent symptoms or after resolution of an episode of complicated diverticulitis. Finally, a recent endoscopic classification, called Diverticular Inflammation and Complications Assessment (DICA), has been developed and validated. This classification seems to be a promising tool for predicting the outcome of the colon harboring diverticula, but further, prospective studies have to confirm its predictive role on the outcome of the disease. © 2015, Romanian Society of Gastroenterology.
