“With support from the federal and provincial governments, we’re determined to ensure that every household and enterprise across our municipality is able to receive reliable, high-speed broadband connectivity. By leveraging ADVA’s FSP 3000 technology, we can meet the needs of even our most remote rural communities and make sure no one gets left behind,” said Mayor Peter Muttart, Municipality of the County of Kings. “The small footprint and low power consumption of ADVA’s solution were key factors for us when selecting our new infrastructure. The technology has enabled us to grow our network sustainably and efficiently, and the scalability of the FSP 3000 platform means we’re ready to expand further in years to come.”

Built on ADVA FSP 3000 open optical transport technology, the County of King’s new infrastructure transmits services at speeds up to 100Gbit/s. The flexible and fully redundant ROADM network delivers the highest levels of availability by automatically rerouting traffic in the case of fiber breaks. The ADVA FSP 3000 platform simplifies operations and helps to reduce both capex and opex. The network includes ADVA’s 400Gbit/s QuadFlex and OpenFabric line cards, as well as lower-rate service multiplexing and an open, reconfigurable line system. With an agile modular design, this truly open solution gives the Municipality of the County of Kings total freedom to evolve and optimize each network layer separately in the future.

“This deployment shows that the County of Kings shares our drive to create a more connected world. High-speed broadband has the power to improve lives and transform businesses. Being able to access digital information – to learn, shop and socialize online – brings enormous advantages to local communities and economies. With our technology and support, the County of Kings is delivering those benefits to all of its residents,” commented John Scherzinger, SVP, sales, North America, ADVA. “For too long, rural areas have had to struggle without the essential utility of broadband. Now, we’re helping customers like the County of Kings to end that disparity.”

NielsenIQ Rises to the Omnichannel Measurement Challenge8.12.2021 15:01:00 EET | Press release

The shopper journey continually evolves as consumers have more control over what they do, see, and hear. That means the tools used to measure and analyze sales, market share and consumer behavior must also change. In an environment that continues to experience seismic shifts, measuring when, where and how consumers are buying is imperative. This allows fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) manufacturers and retailers to anticipate trends and react faster to consumers’ needs and expectations. Although the fastest growing channel in Western Europe and North America is online, e-commerce measurement tools are largely fragmented. Users must combine data from multiple sources to get a full picture of the market. NielsenIQ is transforming the FMCG and retail industry with its innovative solutions and precise insights, which offer an integrated, accurate, complete, and more granular view of the offline and online marketplace—making it easier to analyze trends across channels.

Proposed “European AI Act” and “Machinery Product Regulation” Will Hamper Innovation, Stifle Small Businesses and Disrupt Manufacturing, Global Robotics Leaders Warn8.12.2021 15:00:00 EET | Press release

The European Commission’s proposed AI Act and updated regulations on machinery products will cause severe damage to European small businesses, robotics companies and innovation, according to four of the most influential voices in robotics and automation. Together, the International Federation of Robotics, the VDMA Robotics + Automation Association, EUnited Robotics and REInvest Robotics urgently call on European policymakers to revisit and amend the proposals. While all four organizations embrace the European Commission’s vision to maintain safety, protect human rights and create a harmonized framework for artificial intelligence and robotics, the collective sees the following primary issues with the proposed regulations as currently drafted: The mandatory third-party certification requirements will slow tech innovation across Europe. The restrictions will hinder artificial intelligence adoption and put European companies, especially SMEs and startups, at a competitive disadvantage glo

 Aleph Farms and WACKER Develop Open Supply Chain Solution for Proteins Used in Large-Scale Production of Cultivated Meat8.12.2021 14:09:00 EET | Press release

Aleph Farms, the first cultivated meat company to grow steaks directly from non-genetically engineered animal cells and WACKER, a supplier of leading protein production technologies, today announced the development of streamlined production processes for essential growth medium proteins to cost-effectively grow cultivated meat. These proteins, central to promoting and supporting cell growth, are not widely available in the market today and represent one of the most prohibitive expenses in scaling up cultivated meat. The agreement between WACKER and Aleph Farms is non-exclusive, meaning any cultivated meat company will be able to obtain these same affordable proteins, without using fetal bovine serum (FBS) or animal-derived ingredients. This open supply chain solution is expected to enable the industry to scale and achieve price-parity faster, eliminating a key hurdle in the commercial viability of cultivated meat.
