ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced that Citynet (HALL AG Kommunal GmbH) has deployed the ADVA ALM fiber monitoring solution in its backbone network.

With real-time insight into its fiber network, Citynet is able to rapidly locate and repair fiber breaks with minimal disruption, reducing truck rolls, lowering carbon footprint and improving sustainability.

“The ADVA ALM enables our repair teams to quickly detect and pinpoint any degradation in our fiber plant. It means no more wasted hours on futile site visits. With proactive maintenance we can also resolve many more issues before services are affected so that outages can be avoided altogether. In fact, the ADVA ALM is so effective that we expect the amortization within the coming months,” said Manuel Kofler, head of IT division, Citynet. “This simple device helps us deliver unbeatable performance and increase the value of our SLAs. Yet it’s the boost to sustainability that makes the ADVA ALM valuable both now and in the future. Reducing truck rolls is key to tackling our carbon footprint and protecting our environment in the long term.”

The ADVA ALM is now proactively assuring Citynet’s fiber infrastructure throughout western Austria. Built on the ADVA FSP 3000 platform and FSP 150 multi-layer edge technology, the regional backbone network is fully protected by round-the-clock service-agnostic monitoring and managed by ADVA’s powerful and easy-to-use Ensemble Controller. Now, Citynet can instantly and precisely locate breaks that could threaten mission-critical services. Maintenance teams can also quickly ascertain whether impairments are in Citynet’s own fiber plant or on a carrier’s side of the network. What’s more, ADVA’s passive sensors are deployed in sites with no available power for remote link monitoring of utility holes and ducts.

“Our unique monitoring technology has already had a significant impact on Citynet’s network and on the people who depend on it. With proactive, in-service monitoring of the integrity and performance of its fiber, Citynet is guaranteeing availability and safeguarding vital services,” commented Andreas Jelinek, senior director, sales, Eastern Europe, Russia and CIS, ADVA. “Working closely with its team, we’ve helped Citynet to transform its municipal fiber network into a truly sustainable infrastructure. With our ALM solution, it can concentrate on what it does best, producing sustainable energy and delivering high-quality services, safe in the knowledge that its network is continually monitored and running at maximum efficiency.”

Experian, the global information services company, has today announced a new global approach to work. The aim is to take the learnings from the experience of Covid-19 lockdown and create a working environment which suits everyone’s situation. Experian is committing to promote more individual choice by creating a new hybrid model, where employees will be encouraged to ‘work your way’.

Alvotech Seeks to End AbbVie’s Wrongful Monopoly on Humira and Bring Affordable Arthritis Treatment to U.S.11.5.2021 17:23:00 EEST | Press release

Alvotech today filed a federal lawsuit (Case 1:21-cv-00589) seeking to end the monopoly that pharmaceutical giant AbbVie has long-maintained on the adalimumab market, sold as Humira. Humira is the highest grossing prescription drug in the United States with over $16 billion in sales in 2020 (nearly $20Bn globally). Alvotech has developed a biosimilar (analogous to a generic) of Humira called AVT02, the first-filed biosimilar drug equal in strength to Humira’s latest formulation, which AbbVie markets as a high-concentration, pain-free drug. The company is also developing AVT02 as an interchangeable product and it expects results from its ongoing interchangeability study in Q2 of this year. AVT02 could save U.S. taxpayers and the overall healthcare system $8-10 billion annually. “Our new product will be a gamechanger that will provide consumers who are suffering from chronic pain with significant savings, and we look forward to bringing this drug onto the market as soon as possible,” sai
