NTT Communications' SD-WAN Gives McLaren Racing an Edge for 2018 Season
McLaren Formula 1 TEAM (McLaren), a pioneering leader in Formula 1 motor racing for more than 50 years, and NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group (TOKYO:9432), announced today that McLaren will adopt SD-WAN (software-defined wide-area network) technology from NTT Com to connect the McLaren Technology Centre with racing circuits in 21 countries during the 2018 season. The decision follows a successful test deployment of the technology during the 2017 Japan Grand Prix, when McLaren was able to send 100GB of data during a race from Japan to the UK via NTT Com’s SD-WAN.
NTT Com’s SD-WAN uses software to control the WAN, providing McLaren with quick, secure, reliable and flexible management of data traffic flows. A variety of traffic can be sent via different connections, such as internet, mobile and MPLS, depending on time, priority and current network speed. This flexibility allows the priority routing of key data, such as telemetry and video, at critical points. Also, NTT Com’s service includes a dashboard screen to visualize data-traffic status during a race. McLaren can grasp network availability and required data bandwidth at a glance to optimize data transmission during a race, giving them an edge in the real-time formation, adjustment and deployment of in-race strategy.
Dr. Shin Miyakawa, Vice President, IoT Office / McLaren Taskforce was particularly pleased with the genesis and evolution of the project. “One of our R&D engineers attended a pre-season practice in Barcelona in 2017 and noticed occasional video jitter on screens in a garage, which made him wonder about the data bottlenecks causing the problem. At his suggestion, we tested our SD-WAN during the Suzuka 2017 race and the results were very successful. We engineered a solution for the 2018 season that McLaren will now use across the team. I’m very pleased with the success of our technology partnership.”
During a keynote speech at the Mobile World Congress in February 2018, two-time F1 world champion Fernando Alonso spoke about the growing importance of data for both machine and driver performance: “Each car provides more data every single second than you can imagine. Every single movement we do in the car, every steering wheel input, every throttle input, every brake pressure input is transmitted immediately in real time to the engineers in the garage.”
“Technology is such an important part of racing,” said Zak Brown, Executive Director of McLaren Technology Group. “SD-WAN is one of a number of marginal gains we are seeing from our technology partnership with NTT Communications. Because SD-WAN offers us more control over data flows during crucial moments, it gives us an edge. I also think it proves the willingness of our Technology Partners to deliver, to bring their expertise to the party, with the ultimate goal of driving the team faster.”

Celltrion Completes Resubmission to FDA for Proposed Trastuzumab Biosimilar18.6.2018 05:53 | Tiedote
Celltrion (KRX:068270) has made a resubmission to the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) to obtain its marketing approval for CT-P6, a proposed mAb biosimilar to Herceptin® (trastuzumab). Celltrion submitted its abbreviated Biologics License Applications (aBLAs) for CT-P10 and CT-P6 to the FDA in April and May of last year, respectively. However, it received CRLs (complete response letters) from the FDA related to the warning letter issued by the FDA in January 2018, related to the manufacturing facility in Incheon, South Korea. Celltrion had completed the resubmission for the approval of CT-P10, a proposed biosimilar to Rituxan® (rituximab) last month. In accordance with FDA regulations, the approval procedure will be usually finalized within six months from the resubmission, so Celltrion expects the approval for the U.S. market of the two proposed biosimilars within this calendar year. FDA has notified Celltrion of its re-inspection schedule regarding regular audit results, and
