leave a comment »

 

 

Compact connector footprint enables fourfold increase in interconnects to provide reduced equipment size and weight in broadcast and other applications

SINGAPORE, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world’s leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, is stocking the High Density BNC (HD-BNC™) family of connectors from Amphenol, a global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of interconnect products.

With a footprint 51% smaller than traditional BNC connectors, and 40% smaller than DIN 1.0/2.3, the HD-BNC allows four times as many interconnects as the BNC, making it possible to reduce equipment size and weight in applications requiring high definition resolution, such as in broadcast and digital video (HDTV), as well as in network routing and switching.

This high-density connector delivers true 75 ohm impedance over a frequency range of 0-6GHz to provide higher performance over longer distances. Engineered to enhance electrical and mechanical performance, the HD-BNC features the trusted push and turn interface of a traditional BNC, providing tactile feedback and a positive lock for quick and guaranteed mating. The range meets and exceeds SMPTE 292M and 424M standards and offers full compatibility with traditional broadcast cables such as Belden, Times Fiber, Draka, and Image 360 and utilises the same crimping tools and cable preparations as standard BNC connectors.

The Amphenol HD-BNC family of connectors is available to order now from RS Components for same-day despatch at http://singapore.rs-online.com/web/c/connectors/.

DHL Welcomes Lions to Hong Kong to Kick-off 2013 Tour

leave a comment »

 

  • Legendary DHL Rugby Ambassadors from the UK and Hong Kong to encourage young talent with local students in support of GoTeach
  • DHL chosen as naming rights partner for the 2013 British & Irish Tour to Australia as part of its global support for rugby

HONG KONG, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — DHL, the world’s leading logistics company, today announced it will be supporting the much anticipated British & Irish Tour to Australia 2013 this summer when it kicks off in Hong Kong on 1 June. The match marks the first time the Lions will play in Hong Kong’s history.

The DHL Australia 2013 Lions Tour complements the company’s global support of rugby, which is as international as its network extending to local rugby teams in countries such as Kenya, South Africa and Fiji. DHL also successfully delivered rugby to the world in 2011 as the Official Logistics Partner of the Rugby World Cup 2011, title sponsor of the DHL Hong Kong 2010 Bledisloe Cup and was a partner of the 2005 DHL Lions Series of New Zealand.

“As a city with a rich association with rugby, DHL is excited to welcome the Lions to Hong Kong as part of the DHL Australia 2013 Lions Tour. As a sport played all over the world that celebrates speed and dedication, rugby is the perfect fit for us as a global brand. We’re proud to continue our long association with the sport and look forward to delivering this exciting event to Hong Kong,” said Ken Lee, Head of Commercial, Asia Pacific and Managing Director, Hong Kong and Macau.

DHL will also offer a group of 90 local students, aged five to six from three Po Leung Kuk Kindergartens, a chance to meet some renowned rugby heroes ahead of the match. Three DHL Rugby Ambassadors, Hong Kong-born Rowan Varty of the Barbarians and Lions legends Mike Teague and Peter Winterbottom, will play games of rugby with the children from low-income families to help them learn more about the game on 31 May at the Hong Kong Football Club. The event supports the company’s GoTeach program by encouraging educational opportunities for young people. It follows DHL’s longstanding promotion of youth rugby in the territory, including past support for local mini rugby events.

“I am very pleased that we have been able to partner with DHL as the major naming rights partner of the DHL Australia 2013 Lions Tour. We have heard a lot about the passion and energy Hong Kong has for rugby and we look forward to meeting local students to help share some of our tips and experiences. This iconic event is always a major occasion for fans and this tour promises to be no different,” said rugby legend Mike Teague, DHL Ambassador for the Hong Kong match.

The tour begins on Saturday, 1June when the Lions face the Barbarians at Hong Kong Stadium in their second-ever match-up. The Lions play 9 matches in total, with the remainder taking place across Australia, including three test matches against the Qantas Wallabies.

NSFOCUS Named a Sample Vendor in Gartner’s IT Market Clock for Infrastructure Protection 2013 Report

leave a comment »

BEIJING/PRNewswire/ — NSFOCUS, a global provider of solutions and services for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) mitigation, today announced it has been named by Gartner, the world’s leading IT research and advisory firm, as the only Asia-Pacific sample vendor in its IT Market Clock for Infrastructure Protection, 2013[1] report published on April 19, 2013. NSFOCUS provides enterprise-level, carrier-grade solutions and services for DDoS mitigation, Web security and enterprise-level network security.
The report found that “damage from DDoS attacks continued to grow in 2012, with a mixture of low-scale and large-scale attacks. New forms of resource starvation attacks were added to the existing mix of volumetric attacks, requiring DDoS protection products and services to adapt. Gartner saw strong growth in demand for DDoS protection in 2012.”
Traditional anti-DDoS defense solutions are inadequate in fending off the more devastating and sophisticated DDoS threats; instead, a cloud-based, multi-layered anti-DDoS solution will be needed. This can consist of a mid-range Anti-DDoS System (ADS), deployed at an enterprise to fend off small or application-layered attacks, or a high-end ADS model, deployed at a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) as a cleaning center to handle attacks of higher performance and capacity. In addition, DDoS mitigation experts can provide around-the-clock support through a cloud-based network security operation center for quick response and support. The best anti-DDoS solution is designed to not only provide real-time, professional DDoS mitigation services, but also keep critical businesses running, maintaining customer satisfaction and generating additional new revenue streams for hosting providers who can offer clients added protection.
About NSFOCUS
Founded in 2000, NSFOCUS Information Technology Co., Ltd provides enterprise-level, carrier-grade solutions and services for distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation, Web security and enterprise-level network security. With more than 10 years of experience in DDoS research and development and mitigation, NSFOCUS has helped customers around the world maintain high levels of Internet security, website uptime and business operations to ensure that their online systems remain available.

European Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Market Becoming Increasingly Self Sustaining, Says Frost & Sullivan

leave a comment »

Market to be bolstered by improved strategic access to charging stations and development of robust business models

LONDON, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The electric vehicle (EV) charging industry in Europe is in the midst of transformation, with the focus on ramping up EV charging infrastructure for the rapidly expanding EV market. Significant growth is on the cards as participants from various verticals such as industrial automation, utilities, parking operators and infrastructure operators enter the fray. This development is also set to help the EV market wean itself off government subsidies and incentives, while becoming increasingly self-sustaining.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.automotive.frost.com), Strategic Technology and Market Analysis of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure in Europe, finds that the market for EV charging stations is expected to grow rapidly from 7,250 charging stations in 2012 to over 3.1 million by 2019 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 113.3 per cent over the period 2012-2019. France, Germany, Norway and the United Kingdom are expected to lead the market due to the high adoption rates of EVs in these countries.

The availability of charging infrastructure plays a vital role in ensuring that EVs maintain their growth momentum. This, in turn, means easy access to charging stations to eliminate range anxiety and ensure that EV users have the freedom to drive for longer periods of time.

“Frost & Sullivan research indicates that over 3.1 million charging stations are likely to be installed across Europe by 2019,” notes Frost & Sullivan Automotive & Transportation Research Associate Prajyot Sathe. “Mode 2 charging is expected to account for over 64 per cent of the market share as nearly 83 per cent of charging is expected to happen in residences or in a location where the vehicle will be parked for 8-10 hours daily.”

Mode 3 charging will be popular in public locations. However, DC charging will be installed in strategic locations where vehicles can be charged in less than 30 minutes. Inductive charging will also be popular, but is likely to be adopted only post- 2014.

Even as the market picks up steam, a major speed bump will be inability to provide long range in a single charge and charging times varying from 30 minutes to 10 hours.

“Through continuous R&D, market participants are expected to introduce innovative solutions that address these issues,” says Sathe. “Emerging trends, for instance, are focusing on AC fast charging which will charge vehicles in 2-3 hours, representing the best use case in locations such as cinema halls and shopping malls.”

Apart from technical issues, another challenge relates to the as yet ambiguous roles of utility companies, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and charging infrastructure providers in the market. Moreover, multiple rules and regulations related to the electricity usage and charges across EU means that a standardised business model is yet to be adopted. Developing a dynamic business model will, therefore, be a key requirement if the market is to continue on its upward trajectory.

“Improving access through building of essential charging infrastructure in strategic public and private locations will overcome the challenge of range anxiety,” concludes Sathe. “Technology advancement that reduces charging time while improving reliability, safety and robustness of the electric charging system will encourage EV adoption.”

Focus on Efficiency Drives Development of Asia-Pacific Data Center Cooling Solutions Market, Finds Frost & Sullivan

leave a comment »

Customers opt for solutions with reduced total cost of ownership

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Growing demand for internet applications, virtualization and online delivery systems has, in turn, lent momentum to the data center cooling solutions center market in Asia-Pacific. Emerging best practices, including greater focus on efficiency, will continue to aid market development in the region.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/svcg.pag/EGPB), Asia-Pacific Data Center Cooling Solutions Market, finds that the market generated revenues of more than US$1.2 billion in 2011 and estimates this to reach US$2.17 billion in 2018.

Digital transactions and online hosting services are gaining pace, and the need to network globally for better process and logistics management has heightened, speeding up the establishment of data centers in Asia-Pacific. Hence, cooling system suppliers are investing in new product development to keep up with these fast-changing requirements and thereby stimulate sale volumes.

“Data centers are likely to face an energy deficit owing to escalating digitization and cloud computing, and green data center cooling solutions that reduce carbon emissions are becoming popular,” saidFrost & Sullivan Energy and Environment Senior Research Analyst Amit Kumar Singh. “Customer evaluation of cooling solutions based on total cost of ownership rather than purely on initial capital costs further highlights the importance of efficiency.”

The expansion of corporate and government networks to meet the challenges of the ever-widening scale of business and operation, along with the explosion in social networking, will increase the use of data centers, and consequently boost cooling systems market growth. Data center operators from across the globe are relocating their data centers to the Asia-Pacific, further contributing to the market’s scope.

Regulations on global warming and carbon emissions are likely to compel data center providers to replace existing systems with more efficient cooling solutions, adding to market revenues in the region. However, these upgrades will be limited to a certain degree due to the high capital costs. Potential customer’s preference for traditional standard cooling solutions, and reluctance to commit to the sizeable investments necessary for new more efficient cooling systems, pose another challenge.

Long, drawn-out bureaucratic processes delay equipment purchase and implementation, dampening the demand. The slow construction market in Asia-Pacific has weakened demand from vertical markets, further affecting cooling infrastructure expansion.

“Cooling solution providers must partner with IT vendors to broaden business opportunities, build comprehensive solutions, and widen their reach,” concluded Singh. “Creating a global product design team will enable cooling equipment vendors to consistently develop sought-after products that comply with the industry’s highest efficiency benchmarks.”

Frost & Sullivan Applauds AMVONET for Cost-Effectively Offering Online Learning and Collaboration on a Single Platform

leave a comment »

— AMVONET enables on demand and real-time collaboration and delivery of educational content between users using AMVONET Manage (LMS), AMVONET Connect, Creative GUI and Publishing Tool

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Based on its recent analysis of the learning collaboration platforms market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes AMVONET with the 2013 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. AMVONET has developed an innovative and unique learning collaboration platform that can be of significant value to today’s schools and businesses. It stands out for its ability to integrate multiple functional systems, including its Learning Management System (LMS); a customized version of Moodle (AMVONET Manage); Live Sync Classroom (AMVONET Connect); and its interactive content creating, editing and publishing capability (AMVONET Publish).

AMVONET facilitates a unique, real-time publishing system where rendering and upload is not required and content is immediately available for real-time delivery. It has a module to provide immediate live technical support for end users from inside of AMVONET. Its graphical user interface (GUI) and comprehensive integration sets it apart from any other platforms with its distinct navigation and tools.

“The platform, with all the functional systems, leverages Moodle LMS, a world-leading LMS builder, to create the AMVONET Manage module,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sathya. “AMVONET has perfected its technology to the point where unprecedented integration of Moodle LMS is possible with the synchronous live classroom and content authoring application.”

Competing solutions provide the management systems and synchronous live class as two entities, whereas AMVONET integrates them on a single platform.

The AMVONET Publish tool includes a patent-pending functionality, interactive Points (iPoints), which allows course designers to program points of interactivity in their lesson recording by embedding any LMS activity and any World Wide Web resource into the final recording. Efficient utilization of Open Source Moodle and the inclusion of live collaboration and content interactivity solutions make AMVONET an ideal solution for various educational institutions.

Meanwhile, AMVONET Manage Bridge (moodle plugin) provides a single sign-on access to Moodle (that can be hosted by third party) and unprecedented integration of all of its activities and resources with AMVONET Connect and AMVONET Publish. Unlike AMVONET, competing solutions are rigged with excessive procedures that complicate their operation and add to user dissatisfaction.

“The GUI developed for the solution is extremely interactive, wherein the published content is perceived with an intuitive setup,” noted Sathya. “The interactive GUI-enabled live class renders the conventional support obsolete, as the live class totally incorporates every aspect covered under the live support functions. It also alleviates the need for maintaining a resource-exhaustive live support function separately.”

Realizing that such a comprehensive e-learning system will be a necessity in almost all modern digital education centers, AMVONET has focused its marketing efforts at institutions of Higher Education, K-12 schools as well as needs of corporate education and communication. In terms of market adoption, AMVONET aims to use resellers in various countries to create a wide network of AMVONET clients, while simultaneously making AMVONET accessible to new prospects in its global target market.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the increased ROI it offers customers, which, in turn, increases customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential.

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 AMVONET

Alliance, Ohio-based AMVONET has created a comprehensive, integrated software suite consisting of an e-learning management system, a live web-conferencing and virtual classroom solution, and a content-authoring application. In addition to the K-12 and higher education markets, AMVONET offers distance-learning business and healthcare solutions for continuing education, corporate training, online collaboration and interactive recordings. AMVONET’s online system provides educators and trainers with everything they need to create, manage and share multimedia course content. For more information, visit www.amvonet.com.

Unlike traditional desktop PCs, with an all-in-one computer, what you see is what you get, for the life of the PC. However, different from an all-in-one PC, the PIO made by Huntkey only integrates monitor, chassis, cable and speakers into the same case, providing more choices for customers to choose their ideal components like CPU, storage, mainboard, graphics card and so on.

Huntkey PIO is outstanding for its simplicity, quality monitor and cooling system. Huntkey PIO combines the traditional eight cables (monitor power cable, monitor cable, speaker cables, etc.) into one power cable, for a space savings of over 70%. Moreover, A+ widescreen made by ChiMei guarantees high quality pictures as well as a better cooling system, which minimizes heat and power consumption.

Lithium Ion Batteries Poised for Substantial Growth in Dynamic Asia-Pacific Market, finds Frost & Sullivan

leave a comment »

Market participants look to keep pace with the rapid changes in the market by innovating

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The market for lithium ion batteries (LiBs) is experiencing significant changes across consumer, automotive and industrial segments. One of the major contributing factors is the price reduction of LiBs due to industry over-capacity and competition. The proliferation of new consumer gadgets and rapid strides taken by the battery industry to keep up will also give a strong boost to the market. Electric vehicles, which have been on the cusp of strong growth for a while now, are expected to help triple the automotive LiB market. The industrial LiB segment too will grow on the back of stationary energy storage applications.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/svcg.pag/EGPB), Asia Pacific Lithium ion Batteries Market, finds that the market earned approximately US$2.21 billion in 2012 and estimates this to more than double to US$4.82 billion by 2017 due to the widening market and product scope.

New energy storage applications in electric vehicles, grid-connected stationary energy storage, and the higher energy requirements of new consumer gadgets are expected to alter market dynamics. The LiB market has to make the most of these changes and find usage in these application areas.

LiBs are the preferred energy sources for consumer gadgets such as phones, tablets, mp3 players, next-generation electrically propelled light motor vehicles, and many industrial and commercial applications. In emerging consumer applications such as smart phones and tablets, LiBs are likely to generate high volumes but require technology upgrades to grow faster.

Consumer gadgets like smart phones and ultrabooks are energy intensive; however battery technology has not kept pace with their growth. This has led to R&D for newer chemistries in industrial and automotive segments that might prove disruptive to the LiB market.

“Competing battery chemistries are posing a stiff challenge to LiBs, as applications are becoming increasingly demanding with respect to energy storage and discharge needs,” saidFrost & Sullivan Energy & Environmental Industry Analyst Vishal Narain T.

With expectations of strong market growth, the competitive intensity and the production capacity in the industry has dramatically increased. So, apart from infusing funds into R&D to improve battery performance, manufacturers are resorting to price cuts to stay competitive. They are also trying to increase product compatibility and decrease product prices to suit a wider gamut of applications.

“Patents offer a major competitive advantage in this technology-intensive market, where industry consolidation to gain technology and market advantage is a strong possibility,” noted Narain. “Technology battles leading to path-breaking products are anticipated to boost sales, reduce prices, and enhance volume demand.”
