Spanish labels unite to raise money for hospitals in fight against Covid-19

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 1 aprile 2020

It’s clear that in facing a global crisis such as that through which we are currently living with the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 virus around the world, we must look at our own communities and forge bonds that can help us through such times. That is exactly what a group of 20 independent Spanish labels (soon to be more!) have done. Forming under the banner of Music For Gloves, labels such as Action Weekend Records, Family Spree Recordings, You Are The Cosmos, Bickerton and more have joined forces with a simple yet vitally important aim: to raise money to help provide hospitals with the gloves needed to treat patients suffering the effects of Covid-19.Their proposal is simple and their methods even more so. Each label, which combined, cover some of the best underground garage, psych, powerpop and punk in the country and beyond, have uploaded four tracks each, available to download for just 2€. Alongside the great selection of current bands that the labels regularly release, you can also find some gems from some classic bands such as San Diego’s powerpop kings from the ’80s, Manual Scan.Forget the majors and the big businesses licking their wounds and working out how to save a few pennies, for it is clear that during times of such crises we must look to those immediately around us. Across the country, and now across the world, musicians holed up in lockdown are taking to social media to broadcast stripped-down concerts from their own homes. And now, this new initiative has been launched to provide resources directly to the frontline services fighting the pandemic.

Spanish Service Provider Aire Networks Embraces New Ekinops FlexRate Solution

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 6 dicembre 2017

madridMadrid. Ekinops has introduced two new flexible rate line modules that lower the cost of optical transport while improving network efficiency and flexibility. A major Spanish wholesale operator is one of the first customers to deploy this new solution.The two new modules – the PM 200FRS02 and PM 200FRS02-SF – are the latest advanced networking solutions from Ekinops, a leading supplier of next-generation optical network equipment.With the new modules, service providers can reduce their capital and operational costs and improve the business case for deploying new capacity. Their small form factor provides operational savings with the ability to fit up to 1.2 terabits per second of capacity in only two rack units. That minimizes space requirements while using less than half the power per gigabit of competitive offerings.In addition, the PM 200FRS02-SF provides single fiber operation, giving service providers the option of cutting fiber costs in half. This single fiber capability was key for Aire Networks, Spain’s fourth largest wholesale operator. It is now using the Ekinops modules in its 27,000-kilometer fiber network that covers 90 percent of the country.Aire Networks has seen its traffic double in the first three quarters of 2017 and sought to improve network operations while keeping operational expenses as low as possible. What the service provider really wanted was a solution that would offer 200G transmission in single fiber mode and guarantee scalability for the future, and Ekinops offered the best solution to meet its requirements.“Not only did Ekinops offer exactly what Aire Networks needed, they moved quickly to provide the solution to us and were flexible and easy to work with at every step of the way,” said Raúl Aledo Coy, CEO of Aire Networks.“We have been able to reduce the form factor in these new modules by a factor of three while reducing power requirements by a factor of two. That delivers an order of magnitude improvement in service density and network cost, key factors for Aire Networks and for other Ekinops customers when it comes to profitability,” said Mark Burton, EMEA Vice President of Sales at Ekinops. “This demonstrates Ekinops’ continued commitment to providing our customers the most efficient and flexible optical transport solutions.” Both the PM 200FRS02 and PM 200FRS02-SF modules employ dual QSFP28 client ports with software-selectable line side modulation that can be provisioned as either DP-QPSK or 16QAM to create 100G or 200G transport links. These new generation modules provide enhanced functionality in one-third the space of previous equipment, occupying only a single slot in an Ekinops 360 chassis, for three times the capacity per shelf.By selecting the modulation format that best meets an operator’s capacity and distance requirements, the PM 200FRS02 and PM 200FRS02-SF can support any metro, regional or long-haul application including converged metro transport, data center interconnection (DCI), mobile backhaul, enterprise connectivity and submarine transport. Ekinops is also adding to the flexibility of the modules by introducing the PM 100G-AGG companion card for multiplexing up to ten 10G multiprotocol client services into a G.709 standard OTU4 that connects to one client port on the PM 200FRS02 or PM 200FRS02-SF. This modular approach allows 10G services to be carried efficiently over 100G or 200G links and allows the service provider to combine both 10G and 100G clients on a single 200G link for greater resource utilization and bandwidth efficiency.

Catella: Positive outlook for Spanish real estate markets

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 30 gennaio 2017

thomas-beyerleThe new Catella Market Tracker on the Spanish real estate markets was released today. The researchers come to the conclusion that Spanish property prices are likely to increase in 2017. The expected development is supported by a growing Spanish economy, increasing rents and a high level of interest in Spanish real estate investments among international investors.The Spanish economy developed well in 2016 and GDP grew by 3.3%, well above the average GDP growth rate in the Eurozone of 1.7%. The Spanish economy is expected to continue to grow the coming years, and GDP growth of 2.5% is forecasted for 2017.Commercial real estate rents in Spain increased in 2016. This rental increase is expected to continue during 2017, particularly in Madrid and Barcelona, where there is a lack of supply of high quality office and retail space.In addition to a growing Spanish economy and increasing commercial real estate rents, the increase in Spanish real estate prices is being supported by a high level of interest in Spanish real estate among international investors. With its relatively strong growth compared to other European economies, Spain stand out as an attractive alternative for international real estate investors.
Pablo Carvajal, Head of Capital Markets at Catella, pointed out that “International funds are currently the most active buyers in the Spanish real estate market.”“Furthermore, some investors are speculating on a potential relocation of financial companies from London to Madrid as a result of the planned Brexit,” says Dr. Thomas Beyerle, Head of Group Research at Catella.The complete Catella Market Tracker Report “Real Estate Market Spain – 2016/2017” is available at catella.com/research.
Catella is a leading specialist in property investments, fund management and banking, with operations in 12 European countries. The group has sales of approximately SEK 2 billion and manages assets of approximately SEK 150 billion. Catella is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm in the Mid Cap segment. (photo: Thomas Beyerle)
