EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND, May 12, 2017 – Calnex Solutions Ltd today shipped the industry’s first ever 100GbE Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) Jitter measurement solution to a major North American equipment manufacturer. Providing 100GbE Jitter Generation and Jitter Tolerance measurement capability, the Paragon-100G enables the jitter performance of SyncE network equipment to be fully stressed and validated. The ITU-T standard for SyncE (G.8262) has strict limits for both Jitter Tolerance and Jitter Generation. It’s vital that network equipment can tolerate the levels of Jitter specified by G.8262 and that equipment does not generate jitter above the limits specified by G.8262. “Demand for bandwidth reached record highs in 2016 and is expected to continue in 2017 and beyond. Service Providers are deploying higher speed core networks, and Ethernet synchronisation is crucial for the end-to-end operation of these systems. Without being able to validate 100GbE SyncE performance, Equipment Manufacturers, cannot ensure their equipment will perform and comply with the SyncE standards” said Tommy Cook, Calnex CEO. “The Paragon-100G is the only test solution able to make the synchronisation and jitter measurements required to verify 100GbE SyncE jitter and wander standards compliance.” Paragon-100G is the first instrument to enable full testing of both PTP and SyncE technologies at 100GbE according to ITU-T standards including G.8273.2 and G.8262.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation open networking solutions, today announced that it will be conducting the first public demonstration of the ITU-T’s two most recent G.fast advancements, 212MHz and coordinated dynamic time allocation (cDTA), at the G.fast Summit 2017 in Paris, France, May 9-11, 2017. These advances enable the delivery of symmetric Gigabit services over a single copper pair, mitigating the need to bond multiple pairs of copper. For the first time, service providers can use a single technology to easily extend business-class Gigabit speeds over existing wiring. “Advancements in consumer electronics and applications continue to drive consumer bandwidth demands in the direction of Gigabit broadband. At the same time, governments around the world are increasingly recognizing that much of their future competitiveness will come in the form of digital innovation. They are implementing policies encouraging investments in telecommunications technologies that enable the vision of a Gigabit Society, which will underpin their digital competitiveness strategies,” said Ronan Kelly, CTO EMEA and APAC for ADTRAN. “ADTRAN’s demonstration of our G.fast Gigabit solutions reinforces our commitment to bringing solutions that deliver and support the Gigabit Society vision, but in timescales and cost models that are relevant to the broader Telecoms Operator community.” ADTRAN is demonstrating the new 212MHz G.fast standard, which doubles the usable spectrum. This enables service providers to deliver Gigabit rates over a single copper pair rivaling most fiber services. ADTRAN is also extending its reverse power feature set to this advanced solution once again mitigating the time and cost to source local power. Together, they allow service providers to accelerate their Gigabit and ultra-fast broadband service deployments by approximately 12 to 18 months and up to one third the cost per subscriber. This will provide telcos with a distinct competitive advantage over cable providers that are deploying DOCSIS 3.1, where the symmetric Gigabit service capabilities of 212MHz G.fast cDTA remains out of reach of DOCSIS3.1—today and for the foreseeable future. ADTRAN, which first demonstrated DTA over coax at last year’s G.fast Summit, is demonstrating the second phase of DTA. cDTA, like earlier DTA function, improves G.fast upstream performance by four to five times by dynamically balancing upstream and downstream performance to match residential traffic patterns in real-time. Unlike the earlier DTA feature, cDTA expands the applicability of this QoE-boosting feature to existing phone wiring, which covers nearly all residential and commercial premises. These two most recent G.fast advancements, 212MHz and cDTA, extract even greater overall performance from an operator’s existing assets, and in a significant portion of scenarios, eliminates the need for full FTTH for the coming decade. For the first time, G.fast provides a technology that service providers can leverage to more rapidly and more cost-effectively extend symmetric Gigabit fiber services and expand ultra-fast broadband service to the wider market. Designed and built to form an integral part of the ADTRAN MOSAIC Open Software Defined Access platform, operators embracing these solutions today can take comfort from the knowledge that the G.fast access elements in their network are ready to adopt the SDN paradigm shift just as soon as the operators’ IT departments are ready. The G.fast Summit 2017 is the world’s premier event focused on deployments, experimentations, standardization processes and equipment provider offerings within the G.fast market. ADTRAN’s demonstration will take place at Booth #2 on May 9-11, 2017. As the platinum sponsor of the event, ADTRAN representatives will also be presenting on key developments and innovations in G.fast. ADTRAN, Inc. is a leading global provider of networking and communications equipment. ADTRAN’s products enable voice, data, video and Internet communications across a variety of network infrastructures. ADTRAN solutions are currently in use by service providers, private enterprises, government organizations, and millions of individual users worldwide.

Geneva, Switzerland, 30 January 2017 – What are the correct symbols for bits and bytes? How do you accurately measure the spectrum of light? How do you quantify airborne sound? Consistency in quantities and units is essential for accurate measurement and can only be achieved if everyone is using the same language. The ISO/IEC 80000 series of Standards does just that, and it is currently under revision. The ISO/IEC 80000 quantities and units series is referenced in the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) guide on the International System of Units (SI), known as the SI brochure, and thus provides important support for the definition of quantities and units. It consists of 13 different parts, featuring two from the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and 11 from the ISO (International Organization for Standardization), some of which are approaching a crucial and final stage of their revision. This series of Standards underpins the international harmonization of terms, definitions and symbols used in science and engineering and thus guarantees a unified language and writing of formulae. It reduces the risk of error and facilitates and encourages communication between scientists and engineers of many disciplines. Dr. Michael Krystek, Chair of IEC TC 25, states “The unification of measurements on a global scale, for all domains of activities, is vital to industries and global trade. This harmonization will ease the development of innovative products and services. The ISO/IEC 80000 series is periodically revised in order to stay relevant to today’s market demands.” The series gives terms, definitions, recommended symbols, units and any other important information related to quantities used in science, engineering, metrology and industry. It is a reference for those writing scientific or technical documents, textbooks, standards and guides. A number of the parts are currently at Draft International Standard (DIS) stage and approaching publication. They are: In addition, two parts have recently reached DIS stage, meaning interested parties can once more submit feedback on the draft before final publication. They are: The other parts in the series on quantities and units are: The IEC parts of the ISO/IEC 80000 series of Standards are developed by IEC Technical Committee (TC) 25: Quantities and units, whose secretariat is located in Italy. IEC TC 25 maintains a close collaboration with IEC TC 1: Terminology, and is in constant liaison with ISO/TC 12: Quantities and units, the International Organization for Legal Metrology (OIML), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the BIPM. On top of the two parts that are under direct IEC responsibility, the Commission also contributes significantly to the other parts of the ISO/IEC 80000 series of Standards. IEC Subcommittee (SC) 34A: Lamps, IEC SC 62B: Diagnostic imaging equipment, IEC TC 76: Optical radiation safety and laser equipment, IEC TC 100: Audio, video and multimedia systems and equipment, and IEC TC 110: Electronic display devices, all play an integral role in the development of ISO 80000-7: Light and radiation. Furthermore, ISO-80000-8: Acoustics specifically refers to Standards developed by IEC TC 29: Electroacoustics. The Standards are expected to be used by metrology and technical institutes, academia, technical book writers and translators, standards developers and many areas of industry. Copies of IEC International Standards are available from the IEC Webstore and from IEC National Committees. About the IEC The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is the world’s leading organization that prepares and publishes globally relevant International Standards for all electric and electronic devices and systems. It brings together 171 countries, representing 99.1% of the world population and 99.2% of world electricity generation. More than 20 000 experts cooperate on the global IEC platform and many more in each member country. They ensure that products work everywhere safely and efficiently with each other. The IEC also supports all forms of conformity assessment and administers four Conformity Assessment Systems that certify that components, equipment and systems used in homes, offices, healthcare facilities, public spaces, transportation, manufacturing, explosive environments and during energy generation conform to them. IEC work covers a vast range of technologies: power generation (including all renewable energy sources), transmission, distribution, Smart Grid & Smart Cities, batteries, home appliances, office and medical equipment, all public and private transportation, semiconductors, fibre optics, nanotechnology, multimedia, information technology, and more. It also addresses safety, EMC, performance and the environment. www.iec.ch

"Project Loon" uses roaming balloons to beam internet coverage and planned to connect Sri Lanka's 21 million people to the web, even those in remote connectivity black spots. But just a year after testing began in Sri Lanka regulators have been unable to allocate Google a radio frequency for the airborne venture without breaching international regulations. Communications minister Harin Fernando said the Geneva-based International Telecommunications Union (ITU) was opposed to Google using the same frequency as Sri Lanka's public broadcasters to provide its internet. "It boils down to a legal issue," Fernando told reporters in Colombo. "The government as well as Google are lobbying the ITU, but if we fail there's a risk Google will go to another country that is not bound by these rules." Google's giant helium-filled balloons act as floating mobile base stations, beaming high-speed internet to areas beyond the reach of ground-based telecommunication towers. The first of three balloons—which roam the stratosphere at twice the altitude of commercial aircraft—entered Sri Lankan air space a year ago after being going airborne in South America. The government and Google planned a joint venture where Colombo would receive a 25 percent stake, without any capital investment, for sharing its cellular spectrum with the project. One of the balloons was found in a Sri Lankan tea plantation after its maiden test flight last year, although authorities described it as a controlled landing. About one-third of Sri Lankans have regular access to the internet, a figure expected to swell through the Loon project. Sri Lanka was the first country in South Asia to introduce mobile phones in 1989, and also the regional frontrunner when it unveiled a 4G network three years ago.

"What happens when you cross-breed 25 billion IoT-enabled (Internet of Things) devices with two generations high on The Jetsons and Back to the Future? A strong demand for the smart, or "connected" home," says Shabbir Evershine, Director of Kettle & Oak, a smart-home builder startup. The signs are out there. Virtually every technology company is churning devices (or parterning with those that are) that could be controlled by voice, gesture, geo-location, or trigger event. While Apple, Google, Samsung, Microsoft, and Amazon seem to be paving the way, a wave of new startups have forged their way to create experiences that would surpass the wishlist of most techno-geeks. Kettle & Oak, a startup based in Chicago is doing just that. "The smart home category is fragmented, and operates in a silo", said Shabbir Evershine, Director at Kettle & Oak. "Our aim is to bring a powerful but intituitive experience to our discerning clients". The smart home is typically divided into four functions: security; lightining, temperature, and climate control; kithcen and home equipment; and home entertainment. Manufacturers are embedding "smart" functionality in everything from security cameras, switches, thermostats, cookers, washing machines, and refreigerators to media servers and televisions. By 2020, the percentage of global households with Internet access is expected to touch 69%, according to data from the UN’s ITU agency, and global smartphone penetration is expected to reach 75%. The smarthome market is expected to triple to $43 billion by 2020. Samsung and Whirlpool have also announced that more than 90% of it's products will be able to connect to the Internet by 2017. "We do everything from simple device installations in exisitng apartments or houses to new custom houses with heating, cooling, lightining, home media, sensors, entertainment rooms, and security systems", said Shabbir Evershine. "The best part about my job is to watch our clients gasp in amazement when magical moments happen in tech." Kettle & Oak is run by husband and wife team, Shabbir Evershine and Rashida Evershine. They have built more than 50 smart homes to date, with plans to design their first "smart building" in 2018. Kettle & Oak builds smart homes working with a variety of partners from Google, Amazon to manuacturers and technology companies. "Currently, we serve both the tech enthusiasts, with and without deep pockets", said Shabbir Evershine.

The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for CED, today announced that the Government of Canada provided Pentathlon Group with a contribution of $110,000 to market the 2017 and 2018 ITU Winter Triathlon World Cup nationally and internationally. These competitions are part of the Pentathlon des neiges, the world's largest winter multi-sport event. CED's support is provided in the form of a non-repayable contribution, under the Quebec Economic Development Program (QEDP). It will be used to prepare and disseminate race results on triathlon.org, as well as to produce promotional videos for various platforms that will help raise the greater Québec City area's profile on the world stage. This sporting competition will generate substantial economic and tourism benefits. CED is one of the six regional development agencies under the responsibility of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development. "Tourism is one of the fastest-growing sectors worldwide. By supporting activities such as those organized by Pentathlon Group, we are showing our commitment to promoting the expansion of this industry and the attractiveness of the cities that host them." "Festive and welcoming, Québec City is continuing the tradition this year and hosting the Pentathlon des neiges and its many events, including those of the ITU Winter Triathlon World Cup. These events are a testament to the local organizers' know-how and ability to support the development of innovative projects. I want to thank Pentathlon Group and its volunteers for making it possible to host events that attract athletes, reporters and spectators from near and far. Have a great time, everyone, and enjoy the competitions!" The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development
