Devon, UK - 18 February, 2014 - Sub10 Systems, a specialist in the development of millimetre wave wireless links, and Virgin Media Business, one of the UK's largest telecoms operators, have completed a live backhaul small cell trial to showcase the consistency and speed of millimetre wave technology, ahead of Mobile World Congress next week. Sub10's Liberator-V320, a wireless Ethernet link which operates in the 60 GHz frequency and guarantees rates of 320 mbps, was integral in the trial.
The trial with Virgin Media's Innovation Trial's Team, which took place in Leeds, UK, aimed to provide a reliable high speed connection using wireless backhaul in the 60 GHz band. Three links were installed on three lamp posts in tough-to-reach areas at street level, over a distance of 200 metres. The effects of weather, multipath and passing vehicles were monitored by a weather station and cameras during the trial.
Bruce Girdlestone, senior business development manager at Virgin Media Business, said: "To test the full potential of the 60 gigahertz frequency, we deliberately set up the trial in an environment that was highly populated and had a high density of infrastructure, adding important variables to our test. We used Sub10's Liberator V-320 because of its bandwidth capabilities, its compact size and its flexibility, which makes it suitable for backhaul communications."
All three links remained stable over the course of the one-month trial. The narrow beam width between each link reduced interference and interception risks. Rain fade had little effect on the links and very minimal effect upon the RSSI (received signal strength indication). A severe storm during the trial did not have any effect upon the strength of the signal and physical obstructions such as a double-decker bus did not create multipathing.
Stuart Broome, CEO at Sub10 Systems, said: "The Liberator-V320 is an extremely versatile, cost-effective P2P wireless Ethernet link, and is also licence exempt. Its advantages make it available to both large and small network operators for a number of uses including backhaul communications, LAN extension and as a fibre alternative. The results of this trial have established millimetre wave technology as a dependable and efficient way of communicating between a base station and its core network."
Following the successful trial with Virgin Media Business, Sub10 Systems will be exhibiting at next week's Mobile World Congress from 24-27 February. Sub10 will be showcasing a range of products at the event, with a focus on the Liberator-V1000 and the newly launched Liberator-E1000, which will be shown at Mobile World Congress for the first time. Sub10 will be exhibiting at booth 7C86 in the British Pavilion, Hall 7.

As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within. In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...

Nowadays, a large number of sensors and devices are connected to the network. Leading-edge IoT technologies integrate various types of sensor data to create a new value for several business decision scenarios. The transparent cloud is a model of a new IoT emergence service platform. Many service providers store and access various types of sensor data in order to create and find out new business values by integrating such data.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete en...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Containers are changing the security landscape for software development and deployment. As with any security solutions, security approaches that work for developers, operations personnel and security professionals is a requirement. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Kevin Gilpin, CTO and Co-Founder of Conjur, will discuss various security considerations for container-based infrastructure and related DevOps workflows.

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
