Huawei signs global deal with Ranplan for small cell network planning and optimisation

30 July 2014: Huawei has signed a global license agreement with Ranplan for planning small cell wireless networks. Ranplan's iBuildNet® will replace a series of software tools currently used by Huawei to provide an all-in-one solution for small cell design, simulation and optimisation.

Using advanced 3D building modelling, a fast and accurate 3D ray-tracing propagation engine and powerful data analysis, iBuildNet is able to predict user quality of experience for complex indoor and outdoor/indoor small cell and HetNet deployments. The software automatically optimises Access Point (AP) locations, antenna type, power and channel assignment.

"Huawei's decision to standardise on iBuildNet reflects the exponential increase in demand for data services and the need for a new generation of tools that can speed up the design and reduce the cost of deploying ultra-dense outdoor/indoor wireless networks," said Graham Peel, CEO at Ranplan. "Over 80% of traffic is currently consumed indoors, yet poor performance and user experience are often commonplace. In addition to dealing with complex structures, terrains and materials, radio planning for outdoor/ indoor environments also has to take into account issues such as interference with macro cells and support for multiple-system technologies."

Last year China Mobile also selected iBuildNet to evaluate third-party network design and deployment as well as for the frequency planning of small cell and heterogeneous networks.

Ranplan is based in the UK with offices in China and is expanding its presence in the US and EMEA markets.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
DXWorldEXPO LLC announced today that "IoT Now" was named media sponsor of CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO 2018 New York, which will take place on November 11-13, 2018 in New York City, NY. IoT Now explores the evolving opportunities and challenges facing CSPs, and it passes on some lessons learned from those who have taken the first steps in next-gen IoT services.
"Space Monkey by Vivent Smart Home is a product that is a distributed cloud-based edge storage network. Vivent Smart Home, our parent company, is a smart home provider that places a lot of hard drives across homes in North America," explained JT Olds, Director of Engineering, and Brandon Crowfeather, Product Manager, at Vivint Smart Home, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
