MediaTek to Power the Future of Driving


MediaTek has announced its plan to bring holistic, fully integrated system solutions to the automotive industry beginning Q1 2017. The market for connected and autonomous vehicles continues to grow, and the automotive industry and car-makers demand advanced technologies equipped with a blend of power-efficiency, processing power and affordability. MediaTek’s technology expertise in chipset design – for mobile, home entertainment, connectivity and IoT – positions the company well to bring innovative multimedia, connectivity and sensor solutions to the automotive industry.

“The demands of connected and autonomous vehicles require a unique portfolio of technologies. MediaTek’s core competencies create a natural progression for us to design for the future of driving,” said JC Hsu, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the New Business Department Business Unit at MediaTek.

“We have a strong technology portfolio generated from $10 billion in research and development investment over the past 12 years from modem and RF advancements, computing technologies and connectivity to intelligent algorithms,” added Hsu. “We are developing semiconductor solutions to make an impact in the automotive industry and are focused on core areas of in-vehicle Infotainment, Telematics and safety ADAS to further the evolution toward autonomous driving.”

MediaTek’s ability to scale product development and production – drawing from its experience powering nearly 1.5 billion connected devices a year – will benefit automobile manufacturers and their suppliers. MediaTek solutions for automobile manufacturers will cover four key areas, including:

• Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (Vision-based ADAS): Reimagined from the ground up, MediaTek’s ADAS system will feature cutting-edge, decentralized Vision Processing Unit (VPU) solutions to optimally handle large amounts of real-time visual streaming data. MediaTek employs Machine Learning to increase the accuracy and speed of detection, recognition and tracking, making it more comparable to human decision-making performance.

Precision Millimeter Wave (mmWave) Radar: MediaTek is drawing on its technology expertise and heritage in high frequency RF and connectivity, bringing the automotive industry mmWave radar solutions that use higher frequencies to gain better object resolution and more precise detection. Residing in the high frequency band, mmWave radar can recognize targets more accurately and is more resistant to fog, rain, snow and other weather conditions than current types of radar.

• Superior In-Vehicle Infotainment: MediaTek has developed powerful 2D and 3D processing technologies to ensure its application processors perform at the highest levels of efficiency and speed.

Nokia, Save The Children Collaborate For Disaster Management


Nokia to deploy innovative technology solutions under its collaboration with Save the Children for efficient response during disaster

nokia-save-the-childrenNokia and Save the Children announced today an extension of their collaboration on the social cause to protect children from disasters. The program was launched in 2014 across 5 states – Bihar, Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Delhi and Rajasthan. Under the collaboration which aims to “Use Connectivity to build Resilience of Children and their Communities in India”, Nokia will now deploy technology solutions to enable critical communication during disasters.

Phase 1 of the program was recently concluded in 176 villages where the Save the Children project team helped prepare communities to respond efficiently both during and after disasters by creating specific disaster management plans, school safety plans and village task-forces.

In phase 2, Save the Children will extend the program to another 174 villages and develop partnerships with relevant stakeholders – nodal department and ministries in the government and civil societies — to strengthen the disaster resilience model in all 350 villages.

Nokia will provide an LTE-based Network-in-a-box (NIB) solution for Public Safety Mobile Broadband. It is a system in which the main mobile network functions are integrated into a small ‘box’ and can be deployed during disasters in case the main operator run-network is impacted, to enable communication between early responders and task forces. The solution, which will be deployed in 6 pilot villages in early 2016, will act as a standalone communication system complete with its radio, core, access and application layers.  Additionally, information and communication technology will also be provided to help track the distribution of entitlements under various social protection schemes to the communities in these villages.

Sandeep Girotra, Vice President and Head of India, Nokia Networks, said, “At Nokia, our vision is to make technology more human and we believe innovative technologies can offer concrete ways to provide access to humanitarian aid and assistance during disaster. With our telecommunication technology expertise, including the Network-in-a-box solution, we can enable efficient and reliable communication between task-forces to support rescue efforts, and ensure humanitarian aid is delivered to impacted communities.  We will engage with stakeholders and partner with operators for the deployment of this solution.”

Thomas Chandy, CEO of Save the Children said, “The project combines the expertise of Save the Children in the humanitarian sphere with Nokia’s proven capabilities in telecommunication technology. Through this program, we are making good progress in facilitating the last mile connectivity in bringing vulnerable children and their communities closer to government institutions for better implementation of disaster management policies and planning.”

LTE Roaming Traffic Up By 25% in FY14 : BICS


BICSBICS, a global wholesale carrier for voice, mobile data and capacity services, today announced a rapid increase in LTE roaming traffic over its market-leading IPX network. Last year, kicked off by the European holiday season of 2014, the company experienced a 25% month-on-month growth in traffic which continued throughout 2014 and into the first quarter of 2015.

BICS’ LTE roaming services are supported by its IPX transit capabilities, which also enjoyed a huge increase in adoption rates and traffic levels over the last year. During 2014, capacity usage on the BICS GRX network grew 45% while in the same period IPX transport – comprising of next generation data traffic – grew by 400%.

Focused on enabling operators to leverage the latest available technologies, BICS has been at the centre of the evolution of IPX and introduction of LTE roaming services. During the last year, BICS enabled launches across EMEA, APAC, LATAM and North America, in countries such as France, Rwanda, South Africa, Russia, Poland, UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Access to domestic LTE now covers 90% of consumers in developed markets, according to the GSMA’s Mobile Economy 2015 report. With such widespread domestic availability, subscribers now expect the same data speeds when they are travelling. In order to meet these new demands, operators need to replace their existing SS7 signalling network with a new IP signalling infrastructure built on an IPX network, a change that requires a whole set of commercial agreements and technical interconnections.

BICS’ market leading IPX platform, including LTE signalling, allows service providers to exchange any IP traffic bilaterally with any IPX destination. Through one single interconnection with end-to-end quality management BICS’ IPX platform is able to minimize operators’ efforts, costs and deployment time.

“LTE roaming continues to go from strength to strength and now boasts an extensive footprint covering over 100 countries and over 235 operators supported by the full value IPX can offer,”  said Mikael Schachne VP Mobile Data Business, BICS.

“During the European holiday season last year, LTE roaming usage growth peaked at over 25% growth every month, and this has continued, unabated, into 2015. This demonstrates consumers’ strong demand for the high speed data roaming services that needs to be met by operators in order to remain competitive in their domestic markets”, added Schachne.
