BOUSSY-SAINT-ANTOINE, France, February 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Orange has installed the FrontLink™58 wireless solution on its 4G network. This successful installation confirms that EBlink's Wireless Fronthaul technology meets the same performance standards as fiber on mobile networks. EBlink's solution allows for faster and easier deployment of 4G and future 5G networks.
Ahead of this year's World Mobile Congress in Barcelona (Feb. 24-27), EBlink announces that its FrontLink™58 solution has been successfully installed on the Orange network.
"Our solution represents a technological breakthrough, because the FrontLink™58 system provides revolutionary spectral efficiency: over 7 Gbps CPRI on a wireless link within a 100MHz bandwidth. With unequaled performance, our wireless fronthaul solutions offer new possibilities to mobile operators in their network deployment. Our time-to-market is immediate, and we're working on technical and commercial partnerships with leading industrials to accelerate the distribution of our products internationally," explains Alain ROLLAND, EBlink's founder and CEO.
"We expect to double this technical performance in 2015, and again the following year. Everything indicates that mobile network architectures will rely on Fronthaul links, to enable the use of those technologies essential for the high-speed service expected (Comp, Massive MIMO, etc.). Studies have shown that within these architectures, wireless fronthaul links allow for a decrease in deployment costs of around 30%. Our wireless fronthaul technology was developed with this in mind," adds Christian BITTAR, EBlink's co-founder and COO.
"In just a few months, EBlink has demonstrated that it can attain the ambitious performance levels predicted. It's remarkable," comments Jean-Luc Vuillemin, director of the Orange France network. "From Orange's point of view, it's important that the OEMs participate in the integration of this new technology. For our part, we have created a team that is working with EBlink to study all the possibilities this technology holds for the Orange network."
EBlink will be present at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (Feb. 24-27), and invites you to visit its booth (Hall 7-7C18) to learn more about its technology and solutions.

EBlink: leader of Wireless Fronthaul
Founded in France in 2005, EBlink is revolutionizing the mobile network market with a new standard for the mobile industry: Wireless Fronthaul. This technology was built on the founders' vision of the evolution of mobile network architecture toward ultra high-speed service. It provides operators with an immediate solution for meeting the demands of mobile multimedia applications, and the increasingly high-speed service they require.
Internationally patented technology
The performance of EBlink's innovative Wireless Fronthaul solution represents a major technological advance for operators. Our patented wireless Fronthaul technology eliminates the last few hundred meters of fiber that are so costly for operators. EBlink's solution reflects the evolution toward increasingly centralized telecom architectures. Wireless Fronthaul technology is seen as essential to the development of « Small Cells », to ensure needed coverage and high-speed service. This solution enables faster and easier deployment of 3G, 4G and future 5G networks. Industry analysts and major international operators now speak of Wireless Fronthaul as a technology that has become essential.
Founded in 2005 by Alain Rolland and Christian Bittar, EBlink is headquartered just outside of Paris, France. In 2013, a subsidiary was created in California's Silicon Valley.

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
