A first mobile communication device is communicatively connected to a first network for receiving a first communication service in a first geographic area and in a first frequency-band. A second mobile communication device is communicatively connected to a second network, different from the first network, for receiving a second communication service in a second geographic area and in a second frequency-band. The first device is transmitting, in a third frequency-band disjoint from the first and second frequency-bands, a first identifier and a first location of the first device. The second network monitors the third frequency-band and receives the information in the transmission. Under control of the first identifier, a database is consulted for determining if the first device is listed as associated with the second device. If so, a second location of the second device is determined and a spatial proximity is determined between the first and second devices based on the first and second locations, enabling the first device and the second device to set up a device-to-device communication session.

Apparatus for atomic layer deposition on a surface of a sheeted substrate, comprising: an injector head comprising a deposition space provided with a precursor supply and a precursor drain; said supply and drain arranged for providing a precursor gas flow from the precursor supply via the deposition space to the precursor drain; the deposition space in use being bounded by the injector head and the substrate surface; a gas bearing comprising a bearing gas injector, arranged for injecting a bearing gas between the injector head and the substrate surface, the bearing gas thus forming a gas-bearing; a conveying system providing relative movement of the substrate and the injector head along a plane of the substrate to form a conveying plane along which the substrate is conveyed. A support part arranged opposite the injector head, the support part constructed to provide a gas bearing pressure arrangement that balances the injector head gas-bearing in the conveying plane, so that the substrate is held supportless by said gas bearing pressure arrangement in between the injector head and the support part.

The invention relates to a telecommunications network for wirelessly establishing a connection with a terminal located at a location in said network by a server. The terminal is identified by a terminal identifier in the telecommunications network. The telecommunications network contains a first network node and a second network node. The first network node is configured for receiving a data unit for the terminal from the server, that is preferably located outside the telecommunications network. The data unit comprises the terminal identifier. The first network node is being configured for receiving a location identifier indicative of the location of the terminal from the server and for deriving an address of the second network node using the location identifier. The derived address of the second network node is then used for transmitting a first connection request for establishing a connection with the derived second network node.

The invention relates to the use of a peptide which binds to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or lipoteichoic acid (LTA), for manufacturing a pharmaceutical composition for treating sepsis or septic shock, wherein the peptide comprises the amino acid sequence of apolipoprotein CI (apoCI) or a part thereof that comprises at least the amino acids of the C-terminal helix of apoCI. The use of human apoCI is preferred. The peptide can be administered clinically to patients who have sepsis or threaten to develop sepsis. Measurement of the apoCI content in blood can be utilized for determining the severity and prognosis of the course of the septic condition or for monitoring an anti-sepsis treatment.

A method for allocating radio resources for a D2D communication between a first device and a second device is disclosed. The method includes identifying device(s) relevant for the D2D communication between the first and second devices, obtaining location information for the identified device(s), determining a value of a distance parameter for each of the identified devices using the location information obtained for the device and one or both of location information for the first device and location information for the second device, and allocating one or more radio resources for the D2D communication between the first device and the second device based on the determined value of the distance parameter.
