Airspan Selected by Guineanet for 4G Network in Equatorial Guinea

Providing High-Speed 4G Services to Residents and Businesses

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- AfricaCom 2012 -- Airspan Networks Inc., a leading provider of broadband wireless access networks, announced today that Guineanet, an Internet service provider in Equatorial Guinea, has been expanding its 4G broadband network operating in the 700 MHz frequency band, using Airspan's Air4G powerful, compact, macro base station.

The deployment commenced in June 2011 and has been expanding since, extending covering in Malabo, the country's capital, and Bata, the largest city in Equatorial Guinea. The Guineanet network offers customers high-speed broadband communication for data and VoIP services as well as Wi-Fi hotspots for multi-device connectivity. Having deployed the Airspan's Air4G, Guineanet will benefit from the product's integration of LTE and WiMAX platforms, enabling the company to migrate the network infrastructure to LTE simply and affordably, with a software-only upgrade. This will enable Guineanet to continue to serve WiMAX customers while introducing LTE customers at its own pace.

"Airspan's solutions have perfectly suited our business model and our expansion plans," commented Tim Edwards, CEO and co-owner of Guineanet. "We chose Airspan for their impressive product performance, exceptional customer service, our long-term relationship, competitive pricing and the availability of a 700 MHz product. We have been extremely satisfied with their products and attentive service and look forward to continuing our network expansion and migration to LTE."

Amit Ancikovsky, President of Products and Sales, added, "Guineanet is another in a series of commercial wins announced this year in the Africa region. Africa is a rapidly adopting 4G market segment and a key target for Airspan. Our 4G technology delivers broadband services to many people that haven't had access to broadband previously. We have a solid understanding of the African market and of Guineanet's needs and challenges. We are happy to serve Guineanet and their customers while helping to drive economic growth in the region."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
