Dell Technologies Set to Drive 5G Transformation

first_imgDon’t blink – yes, you read the headline correctly. But just to clarify, we’re not announcing our intention to compete with industry telecom giants like Ericsson, Samsung and Nokia.Connected everything revolutionOf course, it is an exciting, brand new foundational architecture for the telecom world, but for Dell Technologies, 5G is far more than just a telecom play. We believe it will deliver massive transformational change across all businesses and societies. As a leader in digital transformation, Dell Technologies will help define the underlying infrastructure technology. In other words, we will provide the rocket fuel to power and drive the 5G network revolution, the “connected everything” revolution.Science fiction comes trueWhy is 5G such a pivotal development? As my colleague, Mehdi Sif recently mentioned on this blog, we are anticipating “a new wave of emerging 5G, edge computing, and IoT applications.” 5G will spawn new business models that will see billions of devices consuming and generating data like never before. What used to be imagined in science fiction movies—flying autonomous drones, driverless cars and planes, machine-to-machine interactions, seamless communication around the globe—is quickly becoming our new reality.Smart factories and smart citiesMeanwhile, existing industries will be able to work smarter. For critical applications, manufacturers currently use fixed-line networks to ensure high bandwidth, connection density, low latency and high reliability. In contrast, mobile 5G technology will enable smart, interconnected factories, allowing manufacturers to more quickly and cost effectively exchange huge volumes of data as well as deploy artificial intelligence (AI) and automation solutions to help make the industry more competitive.The same goes for smart cities. As many IoT sensors monitoring conditions like air quality and traffic control are likely to be located in difficult-to-reach, often dangerous places, 5G wireless connectivity will allow for more flexible design and on-the-fly reconfiguration.Network architecture redesignIn turn, all these intelligent applications will generate a slew of new requirements—latency, bandwidth, capacity, coverage, storage, real-time data—which means that the industry will need to completely redesign the entire end-to-end network architecture. The current equipment model for telecom networks will not scale up to 100 times the number of users plus 100 times the volume of data.Data is everythingThis dynamic will force massive transformation across the mobile platform and, as Tom Burns recently outlined on this blog, will require Digital Transformation, IT Transformation, Workforce Transformation, and Security Transformation. We will see new architectural, technical, operational, deployment and support models emerge, all demanding higher speeds and agility at lower cost. Everything will be driven by data and the need to capture, process and react network data in real-time. The result? A massive increase in computing at the Edge, coupled with AI and machine learning.Next gen OEM solutions5G will also be the first end-to-end architecture that is fully software defined, from the radio through the core. As the world’s essential infrastructure company, Dell Technologies has successfully mastered software-defined in the data center. And, as the #1 OEM Solutions provider[1], we are best positioned to deliver the next generation of solutions and support for our telecom partners to extend this concept all the way to the Edge.We’ve got all the necessary assets: off-the-shelf commercial infrastructure, high-touch engineering, expertise with telecom solutions, ability to customize, the right partners, plus our world-class global support and supply chain. In fact, the OEM approach—especially the hybrid model—is particularly suited for network transformation. In this scenario, the end customer can purchase the infrastructure directly from Dell EMC OEM, based on a detailed specification—effectively a bill of materials—provided by the OEM partner. From an end customer perspective, this has all the advantages of direct procurement, but with the expert input and validation of the OEM partner.A journey not a sprintThis transformation will not be an overnight sprint or simple upgrade to 5G; think rather a gradual journey towards complete architectural evolution. Dell EMC OEM is already engaged with leading service providers, network and technology vendors, as well as industry standardization bodies. For example, at Mobile World Congress, we’re announcing a validation lab that will showcase how we can integrate third-party applications to develop end-to-end communication solutions.Time to re-engineer your architecture & partnership modelIn summary, my key message to service providers and equipment manufacturers is that hardware and software re-architecture is now critical; the network has to evolve to address these dramatically changing needs. With all these foundational changes happening, you also need to rethink your partnership and procurement models. We can help!What’s your take on 5G? We’d love to meet you at Mobile World Congress.

Hiker presents cheque to Child Heart Fund

first_img 22 Views   no discussions Share LocalNews Hiker presents cheque to Child Heart Fund by: – June 25, 2012 Tweet Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share Shanne Anthony presents a cheque from Jolly’s Pharmacy to Kay Robinson, Treasurer of the Children’s Heart Fund. They are flanked by Jefferson Casey (R) of Jolly’s and Simon Walsh of the DHTA.Every step he made, every breath he took was for the children. Shanne Anthony, an employee of Harris Paints, participated in all three hikes organized by the DHTA during the month of May as part of Tourism Awareness Month and was the first person to register 75,000 steps during the Hike Fest. As a result of this feat, he was able to present a cheque to the Children’s Heart Fund (CHF) on Thursday, June 21st, 2012.The donation was made possible because Jolly’s Pharmacy, leading the way in healthcare, came forward and presented the DHTA with pedometers so that all hikers could keep track of the number of steps made, and they added an incentive. Jolly’s would donate $1 for every 100 steps to a charity selected by the first person to reach 75,000 steps.Choosing the Children’s Heart Fund was easy, said Shanne. He admitted that the word “children” tugged at his heart strings. “The word ‘children’ in the name of the charity just did it for me. My cousin is seven years old and she suffers from seizures because of a problem with the flow of oxygen to her brain and she has to seek medical attention overseas so I thought of her and other children who might be suffering from other ailments.”Receiving the cheque on behalf of CHF was Kay Robinson, the organization’s Treasurer. “We were excited when we heard about the Jolly’s incentive and that a hiker had selected CHF. We are on a drive to raise funds and Shanne must have heard our prayers. We would like to express our sincere thanks to Jolly’s, Shanne and the DHTA for making this contribution possible. One of our goals is to extend our reach to help all children with health-related illnesses so every dollar counts,” said Kay.Jefferson Casey of Jolly’s Pharmacy said Hike Fest was a natural fit for them. “Our major focus for sponsorship is health and a natural element of this is exercise, so we approached the DHTA and presented them with pedometers for all the participants. We also wanted to assist a charitable organization and we are very happy that the Children’s Heart Fund was selected,” said Jefferson.According to Simon Walsh, the DHTA’s PRO, an average of 76 persons participated in each hike with just under 10 persons completing all three hikes and registering their pedometers. “We were very pleased to partner with Jolly’s in order to provide the hikers with pedometers and to be able to facilitate this donation to CHF. We have seen Hike Fest grow over the years and the aim of the DHTA is to take Hike Fest regional. We’ve already had enquires from St. Maarten and the French islands for next year’s event so planning has already begun,” he added.Hike Fest 2012 included a River Hike on May 5th, which stretched from Pond Casse to Castle Bruce, a Cross-country Hike on May 19th starting in Colihaut Heights and ending in Picard and a Beach Hike from Eden by the Sea to Londonderry on May 26th.Press Releaselast_img read more

Consistent Hyun-Jin Ryu helps Dodgers beat Pirates for 90th win

first_imgPITTSBURGH >> If Hyun-Jin Ryu keeps winning immunity challenges, he might not have to leave the island after all.While other Dodgers starters pass the time on the DL or search for their mechanics, Ryu has become the Dodgers’ most consistent starter. He held the Pittsburgh Pirates to one run on four hits in six innings of a 5-2 victory Thursday, the eighth time in his past nine starts Ryu has allowed two runs or less.The win was the Dodgers’ 90th of the season. It comes at the earliest point in the season (by date or games played) in franchise history. They become only the 12th team since 1900 to win 90 games or more in the first 126 games of a season and only the third to get there by August 25 (joining the 1998 New York Yankees and 2001 Seattle Mariners).“I like wins,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said when told of his team’s latest milestone. Ryu has pitched reliably enough to keep them coming. Over his past nine starts, Ryu has a 2.13 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP and the Dodgers have won eight of his nine starts. He has not turned the clock back to 2013 and ’14 before shoulder and elbow surgeries robbed him of some velocity. But he looks like a very close relative of that pitcher.“This is the guy we saw,” said Roberts, who was on the San Diego Padres’ coaching staff the last time the Dodgers had a healthy Ryu in their rotation. “Maybe a couple ticks up in the velocity (back then). But as far as the command, the feel, pitching to all quadrants (he is the same).“Hyun-Jin, from what everyone says, is a big-game pitcher and he’s trying to earn continued opportunities. You respect that.”It would probably take a series of catastrophes to put Ryu in position start a big game for the Dodgers this season. That duty will fall to Clayton Kershaw, Yu Darvish, Rich Hill and Alex Wood when the big games of October arrive.But Ryu has pitched well enough to give the Dodgers an option if things go awry – and something to think about if their collection of left-handed options in the bullpen continue to struggle. Only Luis Avilan has pitched well recently (12 1/3 scoreless innings over his past 14 appearances). The two lefties acquired at the trade deadline, Tony Watson and Tony Cingrani, have returned spotty results so far. “Right now I’m not too concerned. I’m just concerned about my next outing,” Ryu said through his interpreter. “That’s a decision that I won’t be able to control, so I’m not too concerned about it.”Before Thursday’s game, Roberts indicated September could be a time to experiment.With Darvish expected back this weekend, Kershaw and Wood the following week and Brandon McCarthy starting a rehab assignment soon, the Dodgers will once again have a surplus of starting pitchers. That could provide Ryu an opportunity to audition for a postseason bullpen role.“We haven’t talked about that yet,” Roberts said. “But if that is on the table for any of the players I think that, yes, we would have to give him an opportunity to have some success and put him in that situation at some point in September – instead of where a lot of teams run the season out and then supplant guys in the ’pen and assume they’re just going to pitch well in that different role.“Whoever we decide to do that with, I do see us giving them that opportunity at some point in September.”There is no need for Curtis Granderson to audition for a postseason role. But it doesn’t hurt that he has made a positive impact quickly after being acquired from the New York Mets last week.He hit a solo home run in the fourth inning Thursday to break an early tie and put the Dodgers in front to stay. It was his third home run in six games since joining the Dodgers.Granderson has only gone 4 for 22 as a Dodger but three of the hits have been home runs and he also has seven walks, six RBI and five runs scored.“I just think he’s been around the game long enough so the game has essentially slowed down for him,” Roberts said of Granderson’s transition to a new team. “He knows who he is as a player. He swings at strikes, takes balls and conducts an at-bat every single time. He’s a pro out there on defense. He’s into every single pitch.“The character, that allows for the relationship part in the clubhouse to be very easy. He’s come in with a lot of high billing and he’s lived up to it.”The Pirates closed the gap to one run in the seventh inning and had the tying run at third base when Pedro Baez struck out Andrew McCutchen. But the gap widened in the top of the eighth when Yasmani Grandal and Adrian Gonzalez hit back-to-back home runs off Pirates reliever Angel Sanchez who was making his major-league debut. For Gonzalez, the home run was the 310th of his career but only his second this season and first since May 26.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
