OSEA

OSEA 2016

Singapore, Singapore:

The 21st annual OSEA: International Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference will take place in Singapore from November 29th, 2016 until December 2nd, 2016. Due to the growing expansion of oil and gas exploration in Asia,  Singapore serves as an ideal location to host the event, because of its unique upstream oil and gas ecosystem. Although the main focus of the conference relates to deep-water exploration and production, there is also an evolving industry related to digital oil fields, exploration communication and cyber security.

Liberty Port has a long history of servicing the managed communication needs of customers in the off-shore petroleum industry as well as corporations engaging in deep mining operations. Using this solid background, Liberty Port hopes to engage new customers within the Asia Pacific deep water exploration efforts to help facilitate new forms of advanced communications and data protection for their networks. Previous exhibitors of the OSEA event include, ABB, Wartsila, Hytera, and Juli Sling Co, LTD.

ZTE USA Optical Lab:

On July 18th, 2016, Lightwave Online reported that ZTE USA had successfully transmitted a single-carrier 800-Gbps signal over a long-haul fiber optic link. The company says it used electrical time-division multiplexing (ETDM)-based 16QAM to send a 120-Gbaud WDM signal 1,200 km of TeraWave fiber. The signal benefited from the application of optical pre-emphasis on the transmitter side and maximum likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) on the receiver side.

ZTE says it transmitted 12 WDM channels on a 150-GHz grid. Each channel transmitted a total of 960 Gbps, 800 Gbps of data signals plus 20% forward error correction (FEC) emulated overhead bits. The 1,200-km link comprised 100-km spans of the “base” version of TeraWave fiber that features a loss of 0.184 dB/km and an effective area of 125 μm2, according to a source at OFS. The transmission achieved spectral efficiency of 5.33 bps/Hz.

Liberty Port has partnered with ZTE throughout the world in the deployment of WDM Technology and Solutions for both Internet Service Providers and Data Center customers. Due to ZTE‘s continuous dedication to the advancement of WDM Technologies, Liberty Port has been able to offer customers a variety of high quality solutions such as the ZXMP M820, ZXMP M721, ZXMP M920, and the ZXMP M600.

Barcelona, Spain:

ZTE Corporation had a very busy year at the 2016 Mobile World Congress, earning awards in multiple categories, most notably the Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough Award and Outstanding Overall Mobile Technology. The award was given for ZTE‘s latest innovation for its Pre5G Massive MIMO technology by the GSM Association (GSMA), which serves as the world’s most influential association in the mobile communications industry.

Insufficient site resources and global data demand have driven innovation during the mobile Internet era. Liberty Port has relied on it’s partner ZTE to fill this technology gap through the vast number of high-performance and efficient technologies it has been able to deploy in conjunction with ZTE. In this context, ZTE makes innovative use of Massive MIMO technology to enhance wireless spectrum efficiency and boost network capacity. In a commercial network, the average single-carrier peak rate of Pre5G Massive MIMO exceeds 400 Mbps, increasing spectral efficiency by four to six times as compared with that of existing 4G networks.

Pre5G Massive MIMO uses beam-forming technology to expand from 2D to 3D coverage, and implements intensive and extensive seamless coverage. The technology is flexible and can adapt to high-rise buildings, host-pot macro coverage, stadium coverage, and last-mile scenarios, dramatically enhancing overall network quality. Although the technology will only be available for commercial launch in China during 2016, we anticipate that it will have present a great advantage to Liberty Port customers throughout the world.

AWWA: ACE ‘16

ACE 16 Conference

Chicago, Illinois:

Long before water reaches the end-user, it goes through an arduous journey from the moment it is discovered to the point where it is potable for human consumption. One of the leading nonprofit organizations studying to improve this process is the American Water Works Association or AWWA. Established in 1881, the American Water Works Association is dedicated to the process and policies behind managing and treating water, the world’s most important resource.

With improvements in technology, the methodology for treating and delivering water to consumers has now become almost completely automated. Now more than ever, engineers are looking for new types of technology to improve the quality control and security of the networks that control these industrial processes. Liberty Port has worked with a number of companies in the design and management of complex IT and telecommunications networks specifically designed for waste water treatment facilities.

Our team will visit the ACE Conference in Chicago Illinois from June 19, 2016 to June 22, 2016 to network with other industry professionals and learn what challenges still existing in securing communications networks related to vital fields such as water.

Shanghai, China:

ZTE announced its new generation of miniaturized remote radio units (RRUs), which sets a new record in raising power amplification efficiency. The compact series utilities a minimal amount of equipment to facilitate a wide scale deployment. ZTE’s next-generation of miniaturized RRU products, with increased power amplifier efficiency, adapts to varying scenarios and can provide enhanced network performance to help operators quickly and flexibly construct a low-cost, high-performance converged global system for 2G/3G/4G mobile communication networks.

The RRU series possesses the industry’s smallest and lightest dual-PA radio frequency (RF) modules, with only two-thirds of the volume of similar products in the industry, which means that it is easily installed and hidden from sight. In the face of current widespread public awareness of environmental protection, the technology helps operators to quickly acquire new sites and conveniently deploy networks using less space than previously.

The RRU series offers high power, full bandwidth and 2T4R functions. The high power capabilities enable GSM and LTE network to function in dual-mode at a high capacity. The full bandwidth capabilities can be adapted to scattered frequency bands, preserving half of the required RF modules and feeders. The four way receiver significantly enhances uplink coverage performance, effectively extending the standby time of mobile handsets. Therefore, the RRU supports operators in facilitating a high performance GSM and LTE dual mode network in one easy step.

The RRU series also supports 4T4R function and a single RRU can support 4×4 multiple input multiple output (MIMO) technology, with nearly 50 percent reduction in the volume allowing double the data rate to be achieved with quick and easy installation. Combined with the carrier aggregation (CA) technology, a single mobile user peak data rate can exceed 1Gbps.

ZTE’s General Manager of Wireless Product Operation Department, Zhang Jianguo, said: “Following the successful global release of our previous Magic RRU products, ZTE has now launched its new generation of miniaturized RRU products to the market. The RRU series’ consistent performance allows mobile consumers to experience a faster and more stable mobile network. The dramatically reduced product volume greatly reduces the energy consumption and carbon emissions of mobile base stations, and the power amplifier efficiency element is industry leading.”

As a leading communications solution provider, ZTE is committed to technological innovation, and endeavors to provide customers with exceptional network services. In 2015, ZTE’s 4G shipments grew more than 25 percent, accounting for more than 30 percent of global shipments of the 4G market and maintaining the world’s fastest growth for three consecutive years. By the end of 2015, ZTE had built 2G/3G/4G commercial networks for more than 180 operators in more than 110 countries.
