|VoltDB's Unique XDCR Solution Provides Telcos Data Resiliency and Consistency|
VoltDB, a leading enterprise-grade data platform built to enable fast-data decisioning, has introduced its Active(N) Lossless Cross Data Center Replication (XDCR). Active(N) Lossless XDCR will give telcos and enterprises seeking to build 5G use cases a huge advantage by increasing their networks' resilience against outages and security risks, as well as adding extra protection against data loss.
Active(N) Lossless XDCR replicates data in real time across up to four or more data centers at once, allowing for "five nines" (ie, 99.999%) availability, which is quickly becoming a must-have in the age of 5G. "We can now offer a level of data center replication that no other data platform can offer, and that truly enables enterprises to have foolproof uptime and resiliency built into their architecture so that they can significantly increase their success in 5G monetization,"said VoltDB Chief Product Officer Dheeraj Remella.

|DefenderShield's Ultra Armor™: Most Effective 5G and EMF Radiation Shielding Developed to Date|
As wireless networks and devices evolve to 5G and beyond, DefenderShield is advancing technology to protect the public from the potentially harmful biological effects these electromagnetic fields can have on the human body. Thousands of studies have linked chronic EMF radiation exposure to genetic damage, infertility, reproductive defects, cancer, neurological degeneration and nervous system dysfunction, immune system dysfunction, and developmental effects. Many scientists believe 5G's higher, more powerful wavelengths may increase the health effects EMF has on the body.
DefenderShield® has launched Ultra Armor™ Shielding Technology, the first EMF shielding ever developed that can effectively block all wireless signals, including the full spectrum of 5G (Fifth Generation) frequencies used by network providers.
While claims to block 5G frequencies are widespread, DefenderShield's Ultra Armor™ is the first and only material in the world to shield up to 99.99% of low, mid, and high-band 5G frequencies reaching up to 90 GHz.
|Reimagined ICT Infrastructure Explored at Recent Conference|
Executive Director of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Tom Smith, and BICSI President Todd W. Taylor, partnered to deliver a forward-looking Keynote address titled, "FUTURE WORLD VISION: Infrastructure Reimagined," at the BICSI Fall Conference held recently in Las Vegas.
Both Smith and Taylor informed attendees of the many exciting innovations leading the ICT world into the foreseeable future, including autonomous vehicles, intelligent buildings, and the many factors that are reshaping the built environment.
Smith and Taylor identified multiple obstacles to anticipate in the coming years, including those listed in the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the U.S. infrastructure limitations highlighted in ASCE's report card and failure to act studies. They concluded with many feasible solutions.

|New Ceiling, Omni and Flat Panel Antennas Perfect for Growing 5G Applications|
L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand and a preferred manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has introduced a new line of low-PIM rated, ceiling, omni and flat panel antennas to address the latest 5G network deployments where high-performance along with low-PIM ratings are a requirement.
L-com's new antennas are perfect for use in indoor distributed wireless networks where support of sub-6 GHz 5G, LTE, FirstNet or other telecommunication networks are required. With multiple options for form factor, connector count and connector type, a full wireless network deployment can be achieved using these new antennas to reliably cover an entire building with high quality Wi-Fi/cellular service.
|100% Uptime Guaranteed on Hosted Voice, UC and SIP Trunking Services|
Broadvoice®, a provider of hosted voice, unified communications (UC) and SIP trunking services for businesses, announced that it's offering business customers using its voice over IP (VoIP) services a 100 percent uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA) as part of its commitment to deliver an unmatched customer experience.
"Our business customers count on us for their communication needs -- not most of the time, but all of the time," said George Mitsopoulos, Chief Product Officer for Broadvoice.

|Partnership Enables Automated Network Slicing for Increased Flexibility and Control Across 5G Networks|
Itential® has partnered its automation platform with Kaloom's edge networking software to deliver innovative networking and automation capabilities for communication service providers and enterprises shifting to 5G networks. Together, both platforms will now offer customers the ability to integrate, automate, and deploy network slicing intelligence. Customers will become better equipped to unlock the monetization of 5G through automation, network slicing, and virtualized network fabrics connected to the cloud.
"For operators to extract returns on their massive 5G investments, they need the means to offer and charge for differentiated services," said Roy Chua, Principal at AvidThink, a research and analyst firm. "However, many operators worldwide are struggling to put together the underlying end-to-end infrastructure that can power these offerings. Kaloom and Itential's partnership couples an agile network automation solution with a flexible network fabric, enabling network operators to bring such services to market much faster."
