Edgewater Wireless Webinar: Why Spectrum Slicing is Critical to WiFi Networks

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 26 marzo 2019

Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (YFI; TSX.V) (OTCQB: KPIFF), the industry leader in innovative WiFi Multi-Channel Single Radio (MCSR™) technology for residential and commercial markets, will host its next webinar on Thursday, March 28th at 1:00 PM Eastern Time, to present the idea and importance of WiFi spectrum slicing and how Edgewater technology applies spectrum slicing to its WiFi solutions.
Network slicing is increasingly being adopted within the mobile communications environment, as a means to improve service performance and flexibility. Using it’s unique patents, Edgewater Wireless takes Network Slicing a step further with Spectrum Slicing and is already seeing the significant benefits using this approach within the WiFi Spectrum.
WiFi Spectrum Slicing for Critical Data Delivery will be presented by Edgewater Wireless Vice President of Product Eric Smith, who has the rare talent for explaining complex technical concepts in layman’s terms. In last month’s Edgewater webinar, Optimizing Spectrum in Dense Environments, Smith used dodgeball analogies to describe single-channel vs. muli-channel WiFi and the problem of contending with other devices for a WiFi signal. The webinar was well-received and the company fielded several requests for additional online presentations.“The demand for WiFi is increasing dramatically, even in residential settings, which causes high-traffic, high-density conditions. This drastically reduces both signal quality and the ability to identify problems in a timely manner,” said Smith. “‘Slicing’ WiFi enables optimal and simultaneous use of channels in the WiFi spectrum, reducing latency in the delivery of applications such as streaming video and gaming, and clearing spectrum space for essential services like signal testing and security.”

Apricus BiosciencesApricus Biosciences Reports Additional Analysis Showing That MycoVa(TM) is as Effective for the Treatment of Nail Fungus as the Current European Standard of Care for Topical Therapy, Loceryl(R)
San Diego Apricus Biosciences, Inc. (“Apricus Bio”) (Nasdaq:APRI) announced that an additional analysis conducted on behalf of the Company has shown that MycoVa™ has successfully demonstrated ‘non-inferiority’ for the treatment of onychomycosis (commonly referred to as nail fungus), compared to the current standard of care in Europe for topical therapy, Loceryl®.
MycoVa™(formally known as NM100060) combines an existing, approved drug for nail fungus, terbinafine, with Apricus’ NexACT® technology that enhances the absorption of the drug through the skin. Clinical trials on the drug started after 2005, when NexMed (now known as Apricus Bio) signed an agreement with Novartis, under which Novartis assumed responsibility to develop and commercialize the drug.
The first clinical trials did not show clear-cut efficacy, and in 2008, NexMed announced that the results were not strong enough to support filing for new drug approval with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Novartis declined to continue to develop the drug in 2009, and NexMed acquired the worldwide rights to the drug, subject to certain payments to be made to Novartis.
In the study, 1,029 patients with mild to moderate nail fungus were given either MycoVa™ (a topical 10% terbinafine hydrogen chloride formulation) or Loceryl® (5% amorolfine nail lacquer) for 48 weeks of treatment. The primary objective endpoint was a complete cure. The secondary endpoints were killing the fungus and improving the appearance of the nail.
The advantage of Apricus Bio’s MycoVa™ is that it is easy to apply, thus improving patient compliance. MycoVa™ is applied to the infected nails, typically at bedtime, with minimal preparation, such as simply washing with soap and water. As described by Iorizzo and Piraccini (2007), the incidence has been increasing due to diabetes, immunosuppression and an aging population. While occurring in approximately 2.6% of children younger than 18 years, it occurs in as much as 90% of the elderly population (eMedicine.medscape.com). As of 2008, Thomson Reuters Pharma has stated that the worldwide market is approximately $2.8 billion in size and is expected to grow to approximately $2.9 billion by 2014.
Backed by NexMed, USA and Bio-Quant, Inc., its revenue generating CRO business, Apricus Bio has leveraged the flexibility of its clinically-validated NexACT® drug delivery technology to enable multi-route administration of new and improved compounds across numerous therapeutic classes.

Sicurezza cibernetica

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 14 aprile 2010

Bruxelles e Heraklion, Grecia, In seguito alla comunicazione della Commissione Europea sul Piano d’azione IoT per l’Europa, l’agenzia per la “sicurezza cibernetica” dell’UE ENISA(Agenzia europea per la sicurezza delle reti e dell’informazione) ha analizzato i rischi associati allo scenario futuro del viaggio aereo in cui sarà abilitata la tecnologia IoT (“Internet of things”) /RFID. Lo studio identifica importanti rischi per la sicurezza e implicazioni per la privacy, sociali e legali, e fa anche concrete raccomandazioni politiche, di ricerca e legali.  IoT è una visione dove tutte le cose prodotte sono connesse l’una all’altra tramite le reti di comunicazione wireless o cablate. Il movimento dei viaggiatori, dello staff aeroportuale e dei bagagli crea un’interazione continua tra dispositivi intelligenti. Implica anche la condivisione di quantità significative di informazioni sensibili. Ogni giorno in Europa vengono effettuati circa 28.000 voli (cioè circa 10 milioni all’anno), per cui l’importanza del viaggio aereo è facilmente comprensibile. Il direttore esecutivo di ENISA, Dr. Udo Helmbrecht, commenta sullo studio:  Tre raccomandazioni di politica: 1. Riconsiderare le strutture di business esistenti e introdurre nuovi modelli di business. Gli attori del trasporto aereo (per es. linee aeree, aeroporti, logistica, agenzie di sicurezza per l’aviazione, ecc.) devono fare attenzione ai nuovi modelli di business. 2. Facilità d’uso e inclusione di dispositivi, processi e procedure – dobbiamo essere completi. 3. Sviluppare e adottare procedure per la gestione e la protezione dei dati  Cinque raccomandazioni per la ricerca: 1. Protezione e privacy dei dati. 2. Usabilità. 3. Autenticazione multimodale delle persone, per es. procedure biometriche. 4. Proposta di standard di protocollo di crittografia semplici, e 5. Gestione della fiducia come considerazione centrale: un’impresa deve comprendere la propria struttura fiduciaria.  Tre raccomandazioni legali: 1. Supporto per gli utenti, per es. affinché i titolari di dati esercitino meglio i loro diritti. 2. Legare molto valore alle informazioni e ai dati. 3. Armonizzazione della raccolta di dati da parte dei negozi aeroportuali e impegno per rendere i viaggiatori più consapevoli della raccolta ed elaborazione di dati. I rischi identificati includono per es.: l’insuccesso delle procedure del viaggio aereo, la frustrazione dei passeggeri e un basso consenso sociale, perdita/violazione della privacy dei cittadini/passeggeri ed esclusione sociale.

Nuovi investimenti nel “mobile”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 21 giugno 2009

IBM ha annunciato un’importante iniziativa di ricerca, che comporterà investimenti significativi nell’arco dei prossimi cinque anni, per promuovere  servizi e  funzionalità “mobile”  per le imprese e i consumatori. Grazie a questo impegno, IBM intende contribuire a introdurre  nuova intelligenza  per rendere più efficienti le attività aziendali e la vita quotidiana delle persone. Le tre aree principali di questi investimenti sono: supporto all’impresa, mobilità nei mercati emergenti ed esperienze  per gli utenti finali aziendali. Aspetti centrali del lavoro di ricerca saranno: tecniche di analisi, sicurezza, privacy e interfaccia utente, navigazione.  Basso costo, elevata larghezza di banda, accesso wireless e potenza di elaborazione delle informazioni simile a quella del PC stanno accelerando la realizzazione della promessa del telefono cellulare come piattaforma ideale per accedere ai servizi informativi.  Un esempio delle potenzialità della mobilità è offerto da un recente progetto pilota realizzato nell’ambito di un programma IBM, che ha utilizzato una tecnologia denominata “BlueStar”.  Il progetto ha consentito a una compagnia di assicurazioni di ridurre significativamente il tempo richiesto per elaborare le richieste di risarcimento, sfruttando la tecnologia mobile per localizzare e inviare i liquidatori idonei e disponibili per ciascun caso.  Questo approccio alle informazioni di configurazione, basato sulle politiche aziendali, per il personale “mobile” ha semplificato la manutenzione dei prodotti-servizi mobili. Anziché avere le informazioni disperse su centinaia – se non migliaia – di dispositivi  palmari, le informazioni dopo il breve provisioning da un server centrale possono essere meglio monitorate, aggiornate e protette.
Per l’83 per cento del mondo che non ha facile accesso al web tramite i PC, IBM aiuta gli utenti della telefonia mobile a diventare più produttivi. IBM Research ha creato un programma pilota nell’India meridionale, che consente a persone quali agricoltori, tecnici riparatori, piccoli imprenditori e consumatori di inviare, recuperare o scambiare informazioni tempestive tramite voce sui telefoni cellulari. Inserire e accedere alle informazioni, ed elaborare le transazioni, come prenotazioni o pagamenti, è facile come parlare in un dispositivo mobile. In nove mesi di attività, il programma pilota ha ricevuto commenti entusiastici dagli utenti.  La tecnologia consente inoltre ai product manager di analizzare le abitudini e i segmenti delle popolazioni di clienti potenziali ed esistenti e quindi adattare campagne di marketing mobile online su misura per tali target.  La divisione Ricerca della IBM coinvolge  circa 3.000 persone che operano in otto centri di Ricerca; IBM ha inoltre più di 20.000 sviluppatori software in 75 laboratori di 18 paesi.
