Ericsson Upgrades Radio System for Faster & Easier 5G Rollouts

first_imgEricsson is adding new hardware and software products to the Ericsson Radio System portfolio, further enhancing the agility and speed with which communication service providers can roll out their 5G networks. Ericsson is launching the RAN Compute portfolio, which responds to the service provider’s need for greater flexibility in the deployment of Radio Access Network (RAN) software and hardware functions.RAN Compute is an architecture that allows service providers to flexibly distribute RAN functions – such as beamforming and radio control – where needed to fine-tune use case performance while also lowering total cost of ownership. The RAN Compute portfolio includes all the current basebands in addition to four new RAN Compute products that provide up to three times the capacity of current basebands. Two new RAN Compute Basebands enable service providers to deploy RAN functions centrally, or at the radio site, while two new RAN Compute Radio Processors enable RAN functions to be placed closer to the radio for enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-low latency applications while reducing site footprint.The company is also launching its new Ericsson Spectrum Sharing software, expanding the versatility of Ericsson Radio System for 5G deployments. This gives service providers a greater opportunity to turn on 5G and speed up network coverage. Ericsson Spectrum Sharing enables a smooth and fast network migration through simultaneous and dynamic support of 4G and 5G within the same spectrum band using the Ericsson Radio System, once operators are ready to make the transition. The new functionality can be implemented through a remote software installation on Ericsson Radio System radios shipped since 2015.This capability will allow communication service providers to deliver nationwide 5G coverage with a much more flexible spectrum migration strategy – removing the need for dedicating existing 4G spectrum assets to 5G statically, which would negatively impact 4G performance. The solution is Ericsson’s innovative approach based on the 3GPP Rel 15 standard and simplifies adoption by 5G device manufacturers.To make it easier to deploy 5G in high-spectrum bands to boost capacity within urban areas, Ericsson is aligning its transport network products to meet the capacity and aesthetics with the Street Macro radios. For example, adapting the Fronthaul 6000 to ensure an integrated and complete Street Macro solution for millimeter wave 5G deployment.All solutions will become commercially available in the second half of 2019 and are going to be featured at Mobile World Congress Americas 2018 being held in Los Angeles from September 12-14.last_img read more

SANDY WONDERLAND: HOLIDAY SANDCASTLE VILLAGE DELIGHTS YOUNG AND OLD

first_img Share By Pamela CodySpecial to the PRESSCourtesy photo.Courtesy photo.Courtesy photo. The climate in South Padre Island does not exactly lend itself to snowman building. However, one of our local sand sculptors has made certain visitors and residents can enjoy the experience in sand form.     World renowned award winning sand artist, SPI’s own Lucinda “Sandy Feet” Wierenga, has once again brought the holidays to life with the second installment of the SPI Holiday Sandcastle Village. Last year’s inaugural effort was such a rousing success that this year, the village has moved from the Convention Center to the heart of the entertainment district, located in front of Louie’s Backyard and adjacent to the Island’s Ferris wheel.      Wierenga spoke about what it took to bring the Holiday Sandcastle Village to life, and some of the obstacles she and her fellow sand carver’s faced.      “A total of 9 sculptors, including myself, worked on this year’s village. The bulk of the work was completed in about 10 days, though I continued to work on it through the end of October and into November.”     Wierenga says being located right in the middle of the entertainment district made sense for a lot of reasons, but also presented some challenges.     “The drainage ditch running through the middle of the tent was greatly mitigated by the city workers, but one unexpected challenge was the local feral cat population, who seem to think we put the installation there just for their pleasure,” said Lucinda.     When asked what the inspirations were for the different designs included in this year’s sandcastle village, Wierenga replied “I wanted to have more cohesion, and give it more of a local twist this year. Thus, the turtle lady and the sea turtle she rescued on Christmas Eve – such a great story. And there is also the story of Santa making his list, and Mrs. Claus checking it twice.”     The “turtle lady” Wierenga referred to is Ila Loetscher, a local icon known for her efforts in the care and preservation of sea turtles. Loetscher founded Sea Turtle, Inc, a local non profit corporation whose mission is protecting, preserving and rescuing sea turtles. Sea Turtle, Inc has since become one of the largest sea turtle centers in the world. The likeness of Loetscher that was created from sand for this year’s sandcastle village is nothing short of miraculous, perfectly capturing her image.     The Holiday Sandcastle Village is scheduled to stay up until January 10. The exhibit is free and opens at noon, but Wierenga says you will want to come back from 6 to 9 p.m. every night for the accompanying light show.   On a personal note, Wierenga expressed gratitude to the city of South Padre Island and the community for supporting her efforts.     “I am really grateful to the town as well as our local sponsors (who are featured around Santa’s throne) for giving me the opportunity to create this exhibition – it was very satisfying.” Wierenga also reported that photo opportunities will soon be available, so check their Facebook page for the schedule for photos with sandy Santa on the village throne. center_img RelatedChristmas Characters: ‘Sand-ta’ Claus in town at Holiday Sandcastle VillageBy PAMELA CODY Special to the PRESS Much like the incredible sand sculptures she has created for decades, Lucinda Wierenga is a true Island treasure.

Rose McGowan indicted on cocaine possession charge, faces up to 10 years in prison

first_imgABC/Pawel Kaminski (LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA) — Rose McGowan was reportedly indicted on Monday on one felony count of cocaine possession in Loudoun County, Virginia.Court documents obtained by Washington, D.C. radio station WTOP claim that after McGowan got off a United Airlines flight at Dulles International Airport in January 2017, police discovered two bags of cocaine in the actress activist’s wallet, found next to her seat by the cleaning crew.The charge carries a maximum 10-year prison sentence. Her trial date will reportedly be set Tuesday at the Loudoun County courthouse.McGowan, who has accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of raping her, has been a leading voice in speaking out against sexual predation in Hollywood. She has maintained her innocence, with her lawyers claiming that someone — possibly connected to Weinstein — planted the cocaine.As for the indictment, her lawyer Jose Baez tells People, “Rose steadfastly maintains her innocence. These charges would have never been brought if it weren’t for her activism as a voice for women everywhere.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
