|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. "A 100 percent SLA backs up our commitment to delivering a stable, secure and reliable network for customers of our hosted voice, UC and SIP trunking services."
As part of the new SLA, Broadvoice voice customers can request credits for service disruption or degraded service levels.
|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."
|BICSI to Host In-Person and Virtual Fall Conference & Exhibition in Vegas|
BICSI is in full-throttle mode registering enterprising professionals for its Fall Hybrid Conference & Exhibition, an unprecedented industry event to be held August 22-26 at The Venetian Resort/Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Information and communications technology (ICT) professionals from around the world will gather in person in Las Vegas or online via a virtual platform.
This year's conference includes more than 35 industry leading presentations covering all areas of ICT including: smart cities, intelligent buildings, Internet of Things (IoT), Power over Ethernet (PoE), data centers, audiovisual technologies, optical fiber, passive optical networks (PON), wireless, distributed antenna systems (DAS), and more.
|Smart Switch Achieves Network Interoperability and Integration Faster than Ever|
Moxa has added the SDS-3016 Series of industrial smart Ethernet switches to its product family. The new SDS-3016 sports: Gigabit uplink, eight additional ports, and an easy-to-configure Industrial Automation (IA)-profile that allows automation engineers to quickly process the increasing amounts of data generated within smart manufacturing industrial environments, and to help them achieve network interoperability and integration faster than ever before.
The new smart switch was specifically designed for IA engineers and automation machine builders. It only includes the functions IA engineers and automation machine builders need, and importantly, does not require them to have IT-based network management skills. The SDS-3000 Series is the ideal product for today's manufacturing industry, especially for machine builders who are embracing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0.
|Built-for-5G Fast Data Platform May be Key for Future Network as a Service (NaaS)|
Network virtualization is heralding a new age of real-time, event- and data-driven intelligence that requires handling complex decisions leading to automated operational optimization at the speed, scale, and precision that 5G demands. Network as a Service (NaaS) has emerged to address some of these core challenges.
For enterprises, NaaS is an opportunity to free up in-house resources to focus on running and scaling business operations without having to worry about the underlying networking functionality. It also immensely improves the employee experience and makes their teams more productive and collaborative.
5G and Industrial IoT, with their proliferating smart device connections, distributed workloads, and ultra-low latency demands, will play a vital part in accelerating NaaS deployments. 5G's predictable single-digit millisecond-latency, capacity to support 1 million devices per square kilometer, and network slicing capability make it an ideal platform to deliver NaaS.
The team at VoltDB -- a built-for-5G fast data platform -- offers unique insight into the future of NaaS.
