Frost & Sullivan: As Mobile Operators Look to Enhance Customer Experience, Demand for Wi-Fi Test Equipment Intensifies Globally

leave a comment »

– The need to monitor data traffic and performance fuels market

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — With mobile operators increasingly turn to Wi-Fi to flawlessly offload Internet data traffic, Wi-Fi test equipment has become vital to enhance user experience and lower the risk of losing smartphone customers. This rise in demand for testing will lead to the development of innovative solutions, ensuring the steady growth of the global Wi-Fi test equipment market.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.testandmeasurement.frost.com), Analysis of the Global Wi-Fi Test Equipment Market, finds that the market earned revenues of more than $190.1 million in 2012 and estimates this to reach $442.6 million in 2018.

If you are interested in more information on this research, please send an email to Jeannette Garcia, Corporate Communications, at jeannette.garcia@frost.com, with your full name, company name, job title, telephone number, company email address, company website, city, state and country.

Affordable, unlicensed and pervasive Wi-Fi technology has emerged as the most popular solution to handle excessive Internet traffic. Its transformation from a convenience service to a scalable and reliable network service necessitates frequent testing.

“The ability for Wi-Fi test systems to identify high-demand service areas and improve customer experience by enhancing network capacity and performance, while lowering data delivery costs has accelerated their adoption,” saidFrost & Sullivan Measurement & Instrumentation Program Manager Olga Yashkova-Shapiro.

The use of Wi-Fi in companies, small offices, hospitals within mission-critical devices such as new medical, smart meter, and home automation applications, has made the rigorous testing of Wi-Fi more crucial. Regulatory bodies are establishing standard testing protocols to ensure seamless operation and improved security between Wi-Fi and cellular networks, offering added opportunities for test equipment vendors.

However, the increasing complexities of these standards, along with rapidly developing technologies, also pose a challenge to equipment suppliers. Continuous innovation and upgrades are vital to ensure high-quality products. As such, integrated, end-to-end test solutions are expected to become popular.

“Test equipment manufacturers must offer cost-effective, software-based, or software-designed solutions that will eliminate the need for multiple tools,” noted Yashkova-Shapiro. “Providing greater mobility through roaming test instruments for performance-sensitive applications such as voice and video will boost uptake.”

Vendors need to educate end users about the need to identify a potential network problem before it occurs to promote the adoption of Wi-Fi testing.

Analysis of the Global Wi-Fi Test Equipment Market is part of the Test & Measurement Growth Partnership Service program. Frost & Sullivan’s related research services include: Global Long-term Evolution (LTE) Test Equipment Market, Global Customer Experience Monitoring Market, Global Wireless Test Equipment Market, and Mobile Backhaul and Wireless Core Test Equipment Market.

Frost & Sullivan Commends Entrust for Expertly Maintaining the Balance between Value and Trust in the High-Assurance SSL Certificate Market

leave a comment »

 

– Entrust offers a flexible and robust management platform that is suitable for small to large enterprise customers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Based on its recent analysis of the secure sockets layer (SSL) certificate market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Entrust with the 2013 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership. Entrust offers only high-assurance digital certificates and accompanying solutions that provide strong security and trust services.

Entrust is dedicated to offering only high assurance certificates, Organization Validation and Extended Validation, and its public root is ubiquitous on more than 99.9 percent of desktop and mobile browsers. Entrust’s organization certificates are also provided as unified communications multi-domain and wildcard certificates.

Entrust Certificate Services offers organization and extended validation SSL certificates in multi-form factors, such as wildcard certificates with Subject Alternative Name (SAN) capabilities, as well as SSL certificates such as elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) hybrid SSL certificates. These certificates are compatible on most up-to-date browsers and highly effective when server-load performance is critical and have the added advantage of being provided in the strongest and best performing encryption levels available in SHA-1, SHA-2 and ECC.

“Its Certificate Management Service (CMS) and Discovery solutions facilitate certificate management and mitigate the consequences of hitherto inefficient processes or documentation,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Richard Martinez. “CMS gives users the choice of unit-based or concurrent license certificate models, while Discovery allows them to scan internal networks for certificates of all types, regardless of the issuing certification authority.”

Entrust Discovery also offers a centralized portal in which customers can manage the entire life cycle of all their certificates. It aids the pre-verification of all their certificates so that they can be issued in minutes and sold through Entrust’s partners and resellers worldwide. In 2012, Entrust updated Discovery to include certificate chain validation e-mail alerts, automated graphic-based reports, and enabled organizations to delegate responsibilities.

Also in 2012, Entrust updated their CMS platform with new features, including a buyer role and the ability to create unlimited custom views. CMS features a self-service portal that allows customers to create permissions for read-only users, provides access to a portal application from which they can request certificates or new clients, and allows certificate activity viewing. In addition, CMS has approval-override capabilities that enable administrators to modify and approve certificate requests instead of simply declining them.

With bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives gaining currency, Entrust also will expand its offering of mobile device certificates in the coming months — seamlessly from the cloud as a managed service — as an easy, cost-effective solution that will help organizations balance security and leverage the BYOD policy.

Entrust maintains a strong focus on the enterprise, government and financial services market, but its continued dedication to high-assurance services is popularizing its security and service offerings outside its strongholds. Its ongoing efforts to improve its SSL certificate offerings have helped it maintain its second ranking in high-assurance certificate issuance and sales, and most importantly, in the overall market share.

“Acknowledging its customers’ trust, Entrust’s SSL certificates are backed by extensive validation and identity vetting, as well as encryption of the data transmission channel,” noted Martinez. “It also provides customers with dedicated account managers, unlimited certificate re-issues and server licenses, and certificate exchanges. These efforts have translated to account renewals of more than 98 percent and high satisfaction ratings on SSL certification authority review websites.”

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that demonstrates innovation in product features and functionality that provide enhanced quality and higher value to customers. The award recognizes the rapid acceptance such innovation finds in the marketplace.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

About Entrust

A trusted provider of identity-based security solutions, Entrust secures governments, enterprises and financial institutions in more than 5,000 organizations spanning 85 countries. Entrust’s award-winning software authentication platforms manage today’s most secure identity credentials, addressing customer pain points for cloud and mobile security, physical and logical access, citizen eID initiatives, certificate management and SSL.

Air China’s Beijing-New York Service Gets Major Boost with Upgrade to Boeing 777-300ER and Expanded Frequency

leave a comment »

— The Big Apple joins other Air China North America gateways with fleet upgrade and expanded capacity-
NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ — A special double treat awaits China and Asia-bound travelers from New York on March 31, 2013 when Air China, China’s exclusive national flag carrier, upgrades its aircraft to the state of the art Boeing 777-300ER and increase its frequency from 7 to 11 per week for its nonstop New York-Beijing flights.
“Adding new flights is a response to a consistently growing passenger demand for more convenient nonstop services between New York and Beijing. Business or leisure travelers bound for Beijing or onward to domestic Chinese cities and other destinations in Asia such as Hong Kong, Vietnam, India, the Philippines, Thailand and many others, stand to benefit the most from Air China’s increased capacity and convenient connecting flights,” Mr. Yuelong Zhou, Air China’s General Manager in New York, said.
Air China is the only airline with nonstop service between New York and Beijing. It is also the only airline with first class cabin between these two cities. Current daily flights between New York and Beijing are CA 982 and CA 981.
The additional outbound flight, CA 990, departs from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 2:50 AM, arriving in Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) at 2:20 PM local time the next day. Inbound, CA 989 leaves Beijing at 9:00 AM also on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, arriving in New York at 10:20 AM local time on the same day.
As the largest long-range twin-engine jetliner, the B777-300ER is cleaner and greener. It also brings twin-engine efficiency and reliability to the long-range market and delivers better fuel performance.
“Operating the New York-Beijing flight with the new ‘triple seven’ provides Air China with a significant advantage in the highly competitive New York market. It shows our commitment to provide air travelers with the best product from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Beijing. I’m sure our guests will appreciate the features of the energy-efficient Boeing 777-300ER,” Mr. Zhou commented.
The ‘triple seven’ has a wider cabin than any competing aircraft. It is designed for maximum passenger comfort and convenience. Air China’s Forbidden Pavilion (first class) features eight luxury suites, 41 full-flat bed seats in the Capital Pavilion (business class) and 259 economy seats with individual monitors and in-seat audio-video on demand (AVOD).
Designed for maximum passenger comfort, the interior of Air China’s B777-300ER feature ten mood lighting variations in the Forbidden and Capital Pavilions, each timed to complement the different phases of a flight—from boarding through meal service, sleeping and pre-arrival. The ambient lighting recreates the sunset, night and sunrise to reflect the various services associated with each phase and create a totally relaxing environment.
Today’s announcement follows last week’s approval granted to Air China by the U.S. Department of Transportation to start four weekly nonstop services between Houston and Beijing on July 11, 2013 using the B777-300ER. Houston is Air China’s fifth gateway in North America in addition to New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver. The Los Angeles-Beijing service, operated with the B777-300ER, will resume its double daily flights on March 31, 2013. Vancouver-Beijing is scheduled to increase from 7 to 11 flights per week on May 17, 2013. A bigger B747-400 full passenger aircraft will be used for the San Francisco-Beijing daily operation beginning March 31, 2013.
About Air China
Air China is the world’s largest airline by market capitalization, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Air China holds the controlling shares for Shenzhen Airlines, Air Macau, Dalian Airlines, Beijing Airlines, Shandong Airlines and 29.9% of Cathay Pacific Airways, making it the airline’s largest shareholder after the Swire Group.

Air China to Commence Chengdu-Frankfurt Nonstop Service

leave a comment »

— The 10-hour flight makes Chengdu more accessible to the world

BEIJING /PRNewswire/ — Air China Limited (hereinafter referred to as “Air China”) will commence nonstop Chengdu-Frankfurt service on May 19, 2013. The new service will cement Chengdu’s position as southwestern China’s air transportation hub and offer a faster and more economic option for travelers between southwestern China and Europe.
Chengdu, the capital of a province widely known as China’s breadbasket, is a southwestern Chinese city with huge growth potential. Recent years have seen a continuous uptick in the number of outbound travelers from Chengdu and other southwestern neighboring cities like Lhasa, Kunming and Xi’an who leave China via Chengdu. Currently, passengers who travel between Chengdu and other southwestern regions and Germany have to transfer in Beijing, Shanghai or Hong Kong, and the whole journey takes at least 15 hours. The opening of the new Chengdu-Frankfurt nonstop service will make Chengdu the third Mainland China city with direct air links to Frankfurt. The whole flight takes just 10 hours, which represents a significant cut in travel time. This faster service will be another driver of the fast growth in tourism and economy of southwestern China.
Chengdu is Air China’s important regional hub of operations in southwestern China and is served by Air China’s over 62 domestic, international and regional routes. It is part of the carrier’s world-spanning route network alongside Beijing which is the main hub and Shanghai which is an international gateway. Frankfurt is Europe’s second largest air transportation hub and the German gateway to the world. It is served by over 260 air routes. It is also home to Star Alliance Headquarters and Air China Europe Regional Headquarters. With the new Chengdu-Frankfurt service, it is not only easier to travel between the two cities and the two countries, but also to benefit from the extensive network of the Star Alliance — with the Star Alliance, Air China’s passengers can easily access 1356 destinations in 193 countries and regions.
The three-times weekly service, CA431/432, will be operated with an Airbus A330-200 on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. The flight time is approximately 10 hours. The flight leaves Chengdu at 01:30 and arrives in Frankfurt at 06:10 on the same day. The return flight is expected to take off from Frankfurt at 14:00 and arrive at Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport at 05:40 the next day. Such flight schedules are meant to make it easier for passengers to access their connecting flights in Frankfurt and Chengdu after arrival. The A330-200 features personal AVOD in all classes of service and lie-flat seats in the Business Class.
About Air China :
China’s only national flag carrier, Air China also offers special flights to state leaders on their official visit to foreign countries. It is a Star Alliance member carrier. It owns a fleet of 432 passenger aircraft and freighters of mainly Boeing and Airbus families (including those of the carriers which Air China has a majority stake in) and operates more than 280 routes serving 30 countries and regions. Banking on the strong route network of the Star Alliance, Air China can take passengers to 1,356 destinations in 193 countries. Air China appeals very much to business travelers. The membership of PhoenixMiles, Air China’s customer loyalty program, has exceeded 25 million. For more, head to Air China’s official website http://www.airchina.com.

Case Zeltiq – CLINIPRO: The Court Upholds Clinipro – LipoCryo Claim

leave a comment »

BARCELONA, Spain/PRNewswire/ — CLINIPRO, a Spanish company that manufactures medical-aesthetical devices, announces that the Barcelona Trade Court No. 5 has dictated a resolution, dated January 25th, 2013, fully disregarding the lawsuit promoted by Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc. (Nasdaq: ZLTQ) and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) against CLINIPRO, for alleged infringements of patents and disloyal competence acts. The matter has been carried out by the SOL MUNTANOLA & ASOCIADOS office, which CLINIPRO put in charge of the legal management.
The sentence states that the patents of the plaintiffs are annulated, due to the lack of inventive activity (the procedure patent) and to the lack of new items (the device patent), so that the presented claim is refused. Moreover, the sentence denies the disloyal acts existence, also a part of the claim, among other reasons, because Zeltiq and MGH cannot appropriate themselves of the name that describes the cold-application technique used to reduce fat (cryolipolysis). The sentence imposes on Zeltiq and MGH the payment of the costs incurred, although CLINIPRO is considering the possibility of requesting, also, the damages and prejudices caused.
We must recall that, due to the claim presented by MGH and Zeltiq against CLINIPRO for copyrights violation, a preliminary order was dictated on May 5th, 2012, where cautionary measures were taken against marketing LipoCryo in Spain. Later, those measures were declared without effect by means of a sentence dated June 25th, 2012, the court accepting the deposit of a substitutive caution. Now, by this new sentence, the caution measures have been immediately cancelled.
SOL MUNTANOLA ABOGADOS, in charge of defending CLINIPRO in this matter, expressed their satisfaction: “The sentence is clear and to the point, so that there is no doubt about the lawfulness of Lipocryo,” has said Mario Sol, the firm’s founding partner and one of the lawyers that was in charge of this case.
About CLINIPRO
Clinipro is a company with presence in over 40 countries and its vision is to remain being the benchmark and the effective, secure and non-invasive alternative to surgical treatments of aesthetic medicine. Always aimed at offering the latest technology and staying ahead of market trends to provide the most innovative technologies. Clinipro, with 20 years of industry experience, has professional technicians and highly qualified physicians that support their brands results such as LipoCryo and Mesostar, among others, which contribute to people’s physical well being through safe and effective procedures.

Humanitarian project will set up infrastructure, provide expert training, validate and process samples
GLASGOW, UK. — Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced it will provide a complete laboratory solution to identify an estimated 20,000 human remains found in various mass graves in Libya following the uprising of 2011 and to address missing persons cases from the 42-year regime of Muammar Gaddafi. This identification work is expected to take several years.

Life Technologies, a leader in forensic DNA technologies, will provide the infrastructure, including the expertise, training, and the forensic instruments and materials to validate the workflow and process DNA samples through its Dubai-based distributor Integrated Gulf Biosystems (IGB).
“It is our hope that many families will find the answers to what happened to their loved ones,” said Peter Silvester, President, Life Technologies, Europe, Middle East & Africa. “By providing the laboratory setup and forensic expertise we will help train Libyan scientists in the very latest instruments, technology and protocols to enable them in their work and help promote reconciliation in Libya.”
Life Technologies will create two separate DNA lines – one geared toward reference samples and the second focusing on processing samples from human remains. Fifty-thousand samples will be processed per year. Human remains samples will be processed using PrepFiler® BTA chemistry optimized to isolate DNA from bones and teeth in combination with AmpFlSTR® NGM SElect™ PCR Amplification Kit and MiniFiler™ Kit, designed for heavily degraded samples. Reference samples will be processed using direct amplification technology combining Copan NUCLEIC-CARD™ with NGM SElect™ Express.
The laboratory will utilise the latest generation of genetic analysers and ancillary equipment and will be functionally validated under the quality assurance standards and guidelines required by the ASCLAD-LAB, SWGDAM and ISO 17025. Some training of Libyan scientists will take place in the United States under the direction and supervision of Dr. Arthur Eisenberg, a world renowned forensic scientist, leading up to the lab’s opening in Tripoli.
“The University of North Texas Health Science Center, with its extensive experience in the identification of missing persons and human decedents, is extremely pleased to partner with Life Technologies in the training of the Libyan forensic scientists to help them complete their mission,” said Dr. Eisenberg, Director of the UNT Center for Human Identification.
The humanitarian project is funded in part by Repsol, a Spanish-based oil company which donated to the Libyan government through its foundation, $2.5 million in 2012 to help establish a state-of-the-art laboratory to identify and generate profiles from human remains and references from associated relatives of missing people.
AmpFlSTR® NGM SElect™ PCR Amplification Kit, Copan NUCLEIC-CARD™, MiniFiler™ Kit and NGM SElect™ Express are for forensic and paternity use only. PrepFiler® BTA is for research use only, not for use in diagnostic procedures.
