-New LG smartphone with MediaTek’s premium Helio P10 chipset debuts on Verizon network
HSINCHU, Taiwan /PRNewswire/ — MediaTek today announces the launch of the first-ever MediaTek-powered CDMA/LTE smartphone by Verizon Wireless. The LG Stylo™ 2 V marks MediaTek’s debut as a certified smartphone chipset provider to Verizon Wireless.

The LG Stylo 2 V uses the MediaTek Helio P10, a richly integrated system-on-chip ( SoC) for high-performance, power-efficient and slim smartphone designs. This first device launch with Verizon Wireless in collaboration with LG validates MediaTek as a relevant SoC supplier to the U.S. smartphone marketplace.

“MediaTek has worked diligently to prove its silicon, modem and software capabilities on the Verizon network and meet its high quality expectations,” said Mohit Bhushan, MediaTek Vice President and General Manager of U.S. Business Development. “We collaborated with LG on a best-in-class phablet device that delivers uncompromised quality, features and technology.”

MediaTek Helio P10 is a high-performance 4G LTE octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz. MediaTek’s modem advancements extend through its Helio family of chipsets, from its P-series of power-efficient and performance-based system-on-chips (SoCs), to the X-series which offer extreme computing performance for flagship devices. The MediaTek Helio P10 integrates a suite of multimedia features, including gaming-quality graphics, 1080p video recording and HD screen support. MediaTek’s premium chipsets additionally include technology that power superior hi-fidelity, hi-clarity audio and dual-camera features for increased light capture and enhanced color resolution.

The LG Stylo 2 V features a large 5.7″ HD display, 1.8GHz octa-core processor, 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. Other features include Android Marshmallow OS, 1080p HD video recording, 16GB built-in storage with expansion capability to 128GB via microSD card. It is available now in Verizon outlets.

This launch is a significant win for MediaTek, said Bhushan. While already a global force in smartphone systems-on-chip (SoC’s), industry watchers have looked for MediaTek to make gains in the U.S. with its Helio family chipsets.

“The collaboration leaves no doubt that MediaTek has arrived as a key player in the U.S. smartphone market,” added Bhushan. ” LG Stylo 2 V allows us to cater to consumers’ need for an array of device choices while continuing MediaTek’s commitment to bring advanced technologies to the growing middle-class consumer.”

Minister Proposes Cut in Transshipment Costs

leave a comment »

JAKARTA, Indonesia, /PRNewswire/ — Marintec Indonesia – held in Jakarta from 23-25 November 2016 – is the leading business event and learning platform for the Maritime Industry in Indonesia. Organized by UBM Indonesia, Marintec will gather over 150 local and international companies which will share insight, technology, and create real growth opportunities for Indonesia and the region.
Minister Proposes cut in transshipment costs
One of the focus will be the Transportation Ministry proposal of a cut in transshipment costs in a bid to boost competitiveness and yield more volume into the country’s hub ports.
“We are concerned that there are a lot of ports that conduct direct call. If the transshipment cost is lower, then there will be more goods going to Tanjung Priok and Tanjung Perak, and it will be cheaper than direct call,” said Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi, referring to two of the country’s major ports in Jakarta and Surabaya, East Java.
The ports that are slated to serve as hubs include Kuala Tanjung (North Sumatra), Bitung (North Sulawesi), Makassar (South Sulawesi), Sorong (West Papua), as well as Tanjung Priok and Tanjung Perak.
The new concept will strengthen Tanjung Priok’s role as a domestic and international hub port as imported goods will transit through it.

Market analyst predictions are that devices connected to the Internet will number in the tens of billions in the coming years. A key global trend in IoT technology driving this growth is the increasing availability of open source software, including easy-to-use IDEs, and ever-improving hardware. Siemens and RS joined forces to offer an IoT platform for the engineers of tomorrow, and the IOT2020 encapsulates these trends, providing the simplest way for engineers to get started with the industrial IoT and meet the challenges of an increasingly connected world.

It can be used to retrieve, process, analyse and send data to almost any kind of device or network due to its various interfaces including Ethernet, USB and micro SD. The gateway is compatible with open source software such as the Arduino IDE and Yocto Linux, to benefit from programming in high-level languages such as Java, C++ and JSON. This openness enables various communication possibilities to further automation hardware or sensors via Modbus, PROFINET or other protocols, or even the direct connection to cloud solutions via MQTT or AMQP. In addition to the on-board interfaces the IOT2020 is expandable with Arduino shields and via an on-board PCIe port.
The attractively priced device, which is an industrial certified product with UL and CE approval, is perfectly suited for educational purposes. It meets the many requirements of schools and universities to provide students with the platform to get a rapid experience of practical development and also allows start-ups and makers to develop ideas in an open way into professional applications and projects.

The open source technology embraced by Arduino has simplified and speeded up electronic prototyping, while Siemens has been a key actor in bringing industrial automation at levels of reliability and interconnectivity that were simply unbelievable 10 years ago,” commented Paolo Carnovale, Head of Industrial Product Marketing at RS. “The SIMATIC IOT2020 is building a bridge between the two worlds and will provide the engineers of the future with the necessary flexibility to develop new amazing industrial IoT applications.”
