CPI Passive Cooling® Solutions Take Nu Skin’s Data Center from Tier I to Tier III

leave a comment »

— Productivity Increased 41 Percent as a Result
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., March 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Nu Skin®, a billion-dollar enterprise in skin care and nutrition products, relied on Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) Passive Cooling® Solutions to revitalize its undersized, undercooled and underpowered data center.

Nu Skin’s data center was small, outdated and did not have proper redundancy to back up systems. IT managers turned to Hunt Electric, a leading data/communication design build company to help them create a new data center environment fit for the company’s bright outlook. The Hunt Electric I.T.S./Data Communications Team recommended CPI’s Passive Cooling Solutions.

One of the main challenges Nu Skin needed to address was inefficient cooling and the constant change in airflow dynamics. To resolve these issues, Nu Skin tested a variety of cabinet platforms using their own equipment. CPI’s F-Series and N-Series TeraFrame® Cabinets with Vertical Exhaust Ducts were selected.

Nu Skin’s improved data center now averages 20kW per row, with potential of up to 50-100kW. CPI’s solutions cut downtime by 56 percent, productivity increased by 41 percent and energy consumption decreased 23 percent. Reliability also increased from a Tier I to a Tier III data center.

“CPI definitely turned the products around quickly enough for us to make good decisions and be ahead of the schedule timeline,” stated Darrin Guevara, I.T.S. Communication Division Manager for Hunt Electric.

Acision Launches National and International Interconnect Solutions, Enabling Cross-carrier and Cross-border Consumer Services for Mobile Operators

leave a comment »

PRNewswire/ — Acision Smart Messaging App and Collect Insights Data Analytics Solution – Spotlighted live for the first time at Mobile World Congress

Acision, a global leader in secure, mobile messaging services, today announced that following the success of its “Credit Orchestration” and Consumer Services business in the LATAM, APAC and MEAP regions, it will be launching complementary national and international interconnect solutions to mobile operators. This means operators can now offer services to their subscriber base that are supported across multiple operators’ networks, as well as across country borders. Additionally, this week at Mobile World Congress (MWC), Acision will be showcasing for the first time its Smart Messaging app, which allows users to manage their SMS messaging services directly from within their device. Acision will also demo its Collect Insights solution at MWC, a service for operators which enables them to effectively manage and analyse subscriber usage data in order to better market services and tailor to user’s needs.

As one of the market leaders in Value Added Services Orchestration, Acision has the most comprehensive portfolio of solutions built on Acision Dialogue Manager (ADM) and designed to take advantage of global mobile subscribers who are on prepaid contracts and can run out of credit at any time. For example, Acision’s award-winning Collect SMS Service enables operators to generate additional messaging revenues from out-of-credit users that would otherwise be lost. Collect SMS makes it possible for low or out-of-credit prepaid customers to request a message recipient to accept the cost. If the proposed recipient agrees, then the message can be sent, ensuring that customers can stay in touch with each other and providing additional revenue for the operator. Other services include Prepaid SMS, Gift SMS, Sponsored SMS and IOU SMS, alongside a market leading range of Personalised Messaging features such as Blacklist, Whitelist, Address Book and Notifications, which are all based on Acision’s industry-recognised experience in messaging.

“Leveraging our messaging infrastructure business, and due to our proven track record and extensive experience in Credit Orchestration services, we are now able to provide operators in markets with high numbers of prepaid subscribers, an option to take their services to a broader community with cross-carrier and cross border interconnect,” said Nicolas Appert, Head of Acision’s Consumer Services Business. “Every operator has prepaid users with no or low credit and periods of inactivity, so our solutions provide a mobile monetisation and incremental revenue opportunity, where users can send messages whatever their level of credit, and the message cost is still covered. Moreover, as this is an entirely unique proposition, offering greater convenience across networks, it enables our customers to differentiate the service they offer, so improving the customer experience and driving up loyalty.”

To make it easy for customers to set-up and manage their services, Acision Smart Messaging app connects directly into the ADM and allows operators to easily provision services and take control of messaging flows. Personalised services available in Acision’s Smart Messaging app include Acision’s Copy and Divert SMS, Archive SMS, Blacklist and Whitelist creation, Auto-reply and Auto-signature. This gives users the power to manage their own SMS messaging including group discussions, across feature phones and smart phones.

To see the Smart Messaging demo live, or to meet one of Acision’s consumer services experts, please visit the Acision stand at MWC in Barcelona from 2nd – 5th March 2015, stand A41 in Hall 8.1.

Acision Solves Routing Challenge for Aruban Operator Setar with Diameter Intelligent Signalling Controller (DiSC)

leave a comment »

PRNewswire/ —

Improve operational efficiency, quality of service and ensure better traffic management with Acision DiSC

Acision, a global leader in secure, mobile messaging infrastructure and digital engagement services, today announces that it will be solving Setar’s challenge to support real-time rating across its 2G, 3G and 4G-LTE networks, with Acision Diameter Intelligent Signalling Controller (DiSC). By deploying Acision DiSC, Setar can effectively broker and route local and international voice traffic generated by all of its networks, providing the best customer experience and assuring appropriate tariffs are applied to all calls, regardless of the location and characteristics of the subscriber.

As the number one telecommunications provider in Aruba, Setar brings innovation and digital technology to local communities, being the first network operator to introduce Internet, cellular, video calling, Mobile TV and wireless broadband to the Aruban market. As part of its evolution plan towards next generation networks, including preparations to deploy VoLTE in the future, SETAR chose Acision’s DiSC to manage, optimise and differentiate network elements, while effectively charging all traffic in real-time, ensuring better service quality and reducing CAPEX and OPEX costs.

“With the addition of DiSC to our network, we are now prepared to provide all of our mobile customers with real-time information regarding their usage of voice and data services when at home or roaming outside of Aruba,” said Raul Ponson, CTO at Setar N.V. “We are not only ready to handle the immediate rating of all usage for Prepaid, Postpaid and Hybrid customers, but will have a future-proof solution which, when the time is right, can manage impending traffic from the expected rise in services such as personalised and shared mobile data plans, mobile advertising, machine-to-machine (M2M) services, MVNE and enhanced OTT applications. All-in-all, DiSC will allow us to control our diameter signally traffic in a far more efficient and cost-effective way.”

As a Diameter Router and Broker in one system, Acision DiSC provides operators with the ability to enrich or consolidate Diameter flows within the network, and enable flexible routing and load-balancing mechanisms to prevent overload of network elements and provide designated quality of service for the selected traffic streams. Acision DiSC’s flexible service logic easily integrates into the operator network and provides ground-breaking performance at minimal cost.

Russell Grahame, General Manager and Senior Vice President at Acision North America, states: “Diameter Signalling Controller is a critical network component for mobile operators that can relieve pressure on resources, while improving operational efficiency and increasing the reliability of the LTE signalling network. With minimal costs and incredible performance, DiSC is a perfect tool for simplified network evolution.”
