ALi’s Advanced Security STB Chipset Receives NOCS Certification from NAGRA

Taipei, Taiwan, December 17, 2013 --(PR.com)-- ALi Corporation, a leading Set-Top Box (STB) solution provider, today announced that ALi’s latest generation of advanced security STB chipset has achieved NOCS certification from NAGRA, a Kudelski Group company and the world’s leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions. Now supporting NAGRA NOCS, ALi’s advanced security chipsets offer solutions for secure delivery of premium entertainment that service providers can rapidly deploy with confidence on content and revenue protection.

Maurice van Riek, SVP Content & Asset Security of NAGRA, comments, “NAGRA is pleased to see that ALi’s advanced STB chipset has passed certification by NAGRA’s rigorous security requirements. The ability of ALi SoC to achieve NAGRA’s certification shows ALi's commitment to meeting the advanced security needs of pay-TV operators around the world using NAGRA’s conditional access systems. ALi’s solutions in entry to mid-level market segments are complementing NAGRA’s wide range of chipset solutions and will enable new and unique opportunities for both companies not only in emerging markets but in mature markets as well.”

Daniel Huang, Chief Operating & Technology Officer of ALi, states, “As a global leader in STB technology, ALi has been highly devoted to developing innovative architecture and implementation of STB SOC with enhanced security capabilities. Integrated with NAGRA NOCS, which provides a unified and certified hardware root of trust, ALi’s STB chipset achieves a well-recognized level of security and therefore answers to the pay-TV industry’s demand for advanced security.” “Integration of NAGRA NOCS onto ALi’s other lines of chipsets is to follow soon, which will provide secure, cost-effective chipset platforms powering innovative set-top boxes and modules for pay-TV operators,” adds Daniel Huang.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
