Huawei publie le livre blanc sur POLAN, la solution facilitant la transformation du réseau de campus d’entreprise

SHANGHAI, 28 septembre 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Au cours de l’événement HUAWEI CONNECT 2020, Huawei a commandé un livre blanc IDC intitulé IT Decision-maker Insights: POLAN as an Enabler of Enterprise Campus Transformation.

SHANGHAI, 28 septembre 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Au cours de l’événement HUAWEI CONNECT 2020, Huawei a commandé un livre blanc IDC intitulé IT Decision-maker Insights: POLAN as an Enabler of Enterprise Campus Transformation. Selon le livre blanc, les décideurs en matière de TI repensent leurs stratégies de réseau de campus d’entreprise à mesure que la transformation numérique s’accélère face à la pandémie de COVID-19. Par rapport aux solutions conventionnelles, la solution LAN optique passive (POLAN) offre des avantages en termes de bande passante, exploitation et entretien, consommation électrique et coût total de possession (TCO). Au cours des cinq prochaines années, la solution POLAN sera largement utilisée dans diverses industries et constituera une base solide pour réinventer les services aux entreprises.

Les conclusions du livre blanc sont fondées sur une enquête en ligne menée auprès de décideurs du secteur des TI dans 318 grandes et moyennes entreprises de divers pays dans de multiples secteurs, notamment l’éducation, le gouvernement, les soins de santé, les transports et l’immobilier. L’enquête personnalisée a été commandée par Huawei et a été conçue, menée et analysée par IDC. Elle fournit des références et des orientations détaillées en matière de politiques pour la construction de réseaux de campus d’entreprises à l’ère numérique.

Selon le livre blanc, la solution de réseau de campus préférée des entreprises doit être dotée d’une architecture de réseau simplifiée. Sa gestion doit être simple et son coût, faible. Elle doit en outre présenter une facilité d’évolution afin de pouvoir répondre aux besoins futurs.

Le livre blanc présente également cinq raisons pour lesquelles la solution POLAN deviendra une solution de réseau de campus grand public dans le contexte de la transformation numérique. Ces raisons sont détaillées ci-après.

Répondre aux besoins futurs en matière de bande passante

Dans un avenir proche, les vidéos HD et les applications IdO vont croître de façon exponentielle et faire augmenter continuellement les besoins en bande passante. Par rapport aux câbles en cuivre, les câbles optiques offrent une bande passante et une capacité supérieures, et prennent en charge les mises à niveau continues de bande passante sans re-câblage. Par exemple, Dubai Creek Harbor a adopté la solution POLAN pour assurer dans les hôtels les services IdO et vidéo, basés sur la technologie 10G PON. Les besoins de Dubai Creek Harbor tels qu’estimés pour les 10 prochaines années sont ainsi couverts. La technologie et la bande passante peuvent être mises à niveau sans remplacer les supports de transmission, protégeant ainsi l’investissement des clients.

Proposer une expérience réseau de haute qualité

Par rapport aux câbles en cuivre traditionnels, les fibres présentent une faible latence, une grande fiabilité et des interférences anti-électromagnétiques. Les lignes de fibre optique sont ainsi en mesure de répondre aux exigences des nouvelles applications de campus telles que la visioconférence, la surveillance de sécurité, l’interaction RA/RV et l’IdO. Une banque nationale a adopté la solution POLAN dans son immeuble de bureaux afin de moderniser son réseau de bureaux et d’assurer tous les services, notamment le bureau connecté, la téléphonie sans fil numérique améliorée, les liaisons sans fil AP et l’accès IdO.

Améliorer l’efficacité de l’exploitation et de l’entretien du réseau jusqu’à 60 %

En comparaison avec les solutions conventionnelles de réseau de campus, la solution POLAN a une architecture plus simple. Seuls les terminaux de ligne optique (OLT, Optical Line Terminal) doivent être gérés. Les bornes prennent en charge le plug-and-play et les bornes défectueuses peuvent être directement remplacées, ce qui réduit considérablement la charge de travail d’exploitation et d’entretien. De plus, les répartiteurs passifs remplacent un grand nombre de dispositifs d’agrégation actifs, réduisant ainsi le risque de défauts. L’université Fudan a adopté la solution POLAN dans le cadre de ses objectifs, afin de bâtir un campus intelligent avec une architecture simplifiée et un déploiement minimal de câbles. La solution simplifie la localisation des pannes et l’expansion de la capacité, et réduit les coûts d’exploitation et d’entretien.

Permettre une diminution de la consommation d’énergie de 30 % et contribuer ainsi à la préservation de l’environnement

La solution POLAN reconstruit le réseau de campus et permet le passage de plusieurs couches à deux couches. Comme la structure du réseau est aplatie, il faut moins de salles d’équipements informatiques. En outre, la consommation d’énergie des appareils et de la ventilation des salles d’équipements est réduite de 30 %. Un célèbre hôtel du Yunnan, en Chine, a adopté la solution POLAN pour cette raison et a ainsi révolutionné son infrastructure réseau. Grâce à la transmission longue distance et à la possibilité de prendre en charge plusieurs services, le réseau prend en charge le Wi-Fi, la voix, la TV HD et le contrôle intelligent des sources chaudes, évitant ainsi l’installation de centaines de salles d’équipement. La consommation annuelle d’électricité est réduite de 100 000 kWh, soit l’équivalent de 47,5 tonnes d’émissions de carbone en moins ou de la plantation de 2 065 arbres supplémentaires.

Réduire de 20 % les investissements liés à la construction du réseau

Non seulement la fibre est capable de fournir de meilleurs services, mais elle présente des avantages physiques évidents en termes de taille, de poids et d’augmentation de la capacité. Selon l’enquête IDC, les clients conviennent que la solution POLAN peut être déployée et exploitée plus facilement et plus efficacement, et qu’elle permet de réduire les investissements d’environ 20 %.

Rohit Mehra, vice-président d’IDC, a déclaré : « À mesure que de plus en plus de tâches de collecte et d’analyse de données sont poussées en périphérie des réseaux d’entreprise, les réseaux de campus deviennent une base solide pour l’innovation en matière de services aux entreprises. De plus en plus d’entreprises se tourneront favorablement vers les solutions POLAN afin de tirer parti des dernières technologies pour améliorer l’expérience utilisateur, augmenter les revenus des services et accélérer la numérisation. »

Jinhui Wang, président de Marketing Execution, Huawei Transmission & Access, a déclaré : « Le résultat de cette enquête approfondie reflète fidèlement les attentes des décideurs du secteur des TI d’entreprise en matière de construction de réseaux. Nous sommes persuadés qu’au cours des prochaines années, la solution POLAN sera rapidement déployée dans de nombreuses industries, notamment l’éducation, l’hôtellerie et les transports. Huawei continuera d’investir dans des solutions et dans la construction d’écosystèmes industriels pour permettre des connexions optiques ubiquitaires. »

Google’s new Nest smart speaker is all but confirmed – CNET

Google Home fans, get ready. You’re looking at the entirely new Nest-branded smart speaker headed to you soon — likely an update to the original Google Home at long last.

Google Home fans, get ready. You’re looking at the entirely new Nest-branded smart speaker headed to you soon — likely an update to the original Google Home at long last.

Google’s Sept. 30 Launch Night In event will likely include a new Nest speaker. We’ve seen FCC filings with the name GXCA6, and Android Police and others got hold of an official Google filing from Japan back in July. Google independently confirmed with CNET that this is indeed an upcoming Google device.

Even more recently, the new speaker was spotted in Walmart and a Reddit user apparently bought the speaker for $100. Those reports claim the speaker is called the Nest Audio.

The timing makes sense. We typically see Google hardware events in the fall, and Google’s event Wednesday is hot on the heels of Amazon’s unveiling of the new Echo speaker (and a bunch of other stuff) with a totally redesigned, spherical look and $100 price tag.

Now playing:Watch this: What I’d like to see from Google’s next smart speaker
5:15
What else do we know?

Filing photos from Japan show the rumored new speaker with the familiar fabric covering of past speakers, but a much different profile. This fabric wraps all the way around the device, suggesting that it might stand vertically when in use — Google’s official photo corroborates that, too.

CNET Google Report

Keep on top of the latest news, how-to and reviews on Google-powered devices, apps and software.

In the tweet, a photo beside a ruler indicates that the speaker is about 8.7 inches (220mm) long, making it quite tall for the smart speaker line, and about 5.9 inches (150mm) wide. The Reddit user who bought the speaker from Walmart also posted several photos that show its size compared to an Apple keyboard.

Documentation also confirms that there will be Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities as well as a 30-watt DC power supply. There’s still no apparent USB-C port or auxiliary input. Other features are familiar, like the silicone base and the G logo halfway up the back of the speaker. A mute switch is also visible in the photos.

How does it fit into the Google Nest lineup?

It’s been four years since the first Google Home smart speaker, and we’ve seen several since then, including the Home Mini, Nest Mini and Home Max, as well as the emergence of smart displays such as the Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max.

This speaker is likely a replacement for the midsized, original Google Home that’s no longer for sale on Google’s online storefront or big-box retailers.

When will this new Google Nest go on sale?

We don’t have specifics, but it’s likely to hit stores in the days following the Sept. 30 event. In addition to the official Google photo up top, Google also offered up this sneak peek of “what the Nest team is working on from home.” Check it out:

Ordinarily, we could expect to see a new speaker at Google’s annual I/O developer conference, typically held in May. Since it was canceled due to the coronavirus, and so much leaking has already happened, we feel pretty confident the speaker will make an appearance at Wednesday’s event headlined by the new Pixel phone.

How much could Google’s new Nest Home cost?

It’s safe to assume this new speaker is intended to replace the original Home, so we’d be surprised if Google sets it too far off from that $99 price. Reports are that when it appeared at Walmart and on Home Depot’s website, the price was indeed $100. That’s in line with the pricing for the previous Google Home speaker. Not much surprise there.

In comparison, the Nest Mini retails for $49 (although Google regularly discounts the diminutive smart speaker, and companies like Spotify often give it away for free with a premium subscription), so we expect it’ll certainly cost more than that.

Whether you’re new to the Google Home ecosystem or an early adopter, these 32 tips will help you get the most from your smart speaker. Also check out the best Google Home feature hiding in plain sight. Here’s another often overlooked advantage: Google Assistant can figure out math problems for you, too.

Runaways


Disney Plus

Six super-powered teens team up to fight against their criminal parents — that’s the intriguing premise of Marvel’s Runaways.

Disney Plus

If you missed this classic sitcom in the early ’90s, it’s time to hit it up on Disney Plus.

The Mandalorian


Lucasfilm Ltd.

The show that launched Baby Yoda into the pop culture stratosphere built its foundations on a base of bountiful action and rich space Western visuals. The titular lone bounty hunter finds his soft side as he protects his precious green alien baby from those on his tail. For polished episodic storytelling in the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian is bang on.

With creative soliloquies from a cartoon version of Lizzie, the show allows you to peek inside its hero’s brain as she finds her identity and grows up.


See at Disney Plus


Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


Disney Plus

If its shaky first season lost you, it might be time to give Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. another go on Disney Plus (available in the UK and Australia; arriving after August for the US). Finding its feet by the second season and growing from there, the series is character-focused storytelling set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and cocreated by Joss Whedon. A super cast, including Clark Gregg and Chloe Bennett, take on S.H.I.E.L.D.’s enemies, from Hydra to the Kree.


See at Disney Plus


Even Stevens


Disney Plus

See where it all began for Shia LaBeouf in Even Stevens. The comedy hinges on the dynamic between siblings Louis (LaBeouf) and Ren (Christy Carlson Romano): Louis is the carefree mischief maker; Ren the A-grade overachiever. Delivered with superb comic timing, this is quintessential family comedy that lets you marvel at LaBeouf’s natural talent in front of the camera.


See at Disney Plus


Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey


Disney Plus

With Disney Plus’ National Geographic content comes Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, a follow-up to Carl Sagan’s groundbreaking Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. Presented by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the documentary series updates the ’80s milestone of scientific documentaries. Stunning CGI aids the storytelling approach to humanity’s triumphs and mistakes in science.


See at Disney Plus


So Weird


Disney Plus

A Disney Channel show with The X-Files comparisons? This late-’90s gem is definitely worth checking out. So Weird stands apart from other Disney Channel shows of the time with its dark tone and intricate narrative. It follows teenager Fiona as she tours with her rock-star mom and encounters paranormal activity on the way. With original music and a cult following, So Weird should be on your radar.

10 foods you don’t want to cook in your Instant Pot. Trust us – CNET

If you have an Instant Pot, you already know it can handle a wide range of foods almost effortlessly and cut down the time it typically takes to cook some foods like beans, rice and tougher cuts of meat — sometimes by hours — all through the magic of even heat and steam.

If you have an Instant Pot, you already know it can handle a wide range of foods almost effortlessly and cut down the time it typically takes to cook some foods like beans, rice and tougher cuts of meat — sometimes by hours — all through the magic of even heat and steam.

In addition to offering basic pressure cooking, some models and accessories can sterilize items and cook food via the sous-vide method. Others are Wi-Fi connected, which is great if you need to run errands while your food cooks. The Instant Pot brand even has an air fryer you can use to make rotisserie chicken and homemade beef jerky.

For more like this
Subscribe to the How To newsletter, receive notifications and see related stories on CNET.

Yet for all Instant Pot’s flexibility and kitchen prowess, it can’t cook everything safely, or if it can, you may find the results inferior to more traditional cooking methods. Steer clear of these 10 ingredients or dishes you shouldn’t try to cook in your classic Instant Pot.

Now playing:Watch this: 8 essential Instant Pot tips
2:11
Crunchy, crispy food

Unless you’ve purchased a specialty model, your Instant Pot is not a pressure fryer and isn’t designed for the higher temperatures needed to heat cooking oil for something like crispy fried chicken. Of course, an Instant Pot is perfect for a dish like carnitas, but to get the final crisp on the meat, after you remove the meat from the Instant Pot, transfer to a skillet and brown for a few minutes or on a baking sheet to crisp up in a hot oven.

Dairy

Just like in a slow cooker, most dairy products such as cheese, milk and sour cream will curdle in an Instant Pot, no matter if you use the pressure cooking setting or the slow cooking setting. Add these ingredients after the dish cooks or avoid making the recipe in the Instant Pot altogether.

There are two exceptions. One is when you’re making yogurt, and that’s only if you use a recipe specifically for an Instant Pot. The other is if you’re making a cheesecake, and again, only if you’re following an Instant Pot recipe.

Pasta

While you technically can cook pasta in an Instant Pot, it may come out gummy or unevenly cooked. Honestly, unless you don’t have the option, boiling the pasta in a pot on a stovetop is just as fast and easy and will yield consistently better cooked pasta.

Instant PotWhy you should own an Instant Pot: 5 reasons, plus recipes and tipsWhat’s the best Instant Pot to buy?Instant Pot expands into air fryers with the $120 multifunction Instant Vortex Plus
Two recipes at once

Cooking your roast with potatoes and carrots is a time honored recipe, right? Not in this case. Don’t try to cook a main dish with a side dish in your Instant Pot. They may fit in the pot together, but each food will need its own cooking time. Cooking items together will inevitably result in a dry or mushy mess.

Cakes

You aren’t really baking a cake in an Instant Pot, you’re steaming it. The cake will be moist — which works for something like bread pudding — but you won’t get a nice crust on the cake or the chewy edges that everyone fights over with baked brownies. However, if you do need to throw something together for a potluck or quick family dessert, you can get a moist sponge in half an hour or so, excluding prep time.

Canning

Canning, the art of cooking and sealing foods in jars, is often done in a pressure cooker. So, it may seem like a good idea to make a batch of jams, pickles or jellies in your Instapot. Don’t do it.

With an Instant Pot, you’re not able to monitor the temperature of what you’re canning as you would with a regular pressure cooker. With canning, cooking and sealing the food correctly is key. Improper cooking and sealing can lead to bacteria growth that can cause food poisoning.

While you want to avoid canning with an Instant Pot, some of the newer models, such as the Duo Plus, do have a Sterilize setting that lets you clean baby bottles and kitchen items like jars and utensils.

Rare or medium-rare meats

A pressure cooker is not a barbecue. An Instant Pot does great with tougher cuts of meat — which the pressure cooker can easily break down — but not so good with ones that are best eaten medium-rare, like a steak. Save those for the grill.

(If you are looking for beef recipes that are perfect for an Instant Pot, our companion site Chowhound has several nice collections for quick meals and summer dining.)

Yellow and red lentils

We love lentils, but not all of them can be cooked in an Instant Pot. Brown and green lentils can hold up to pressure cooking, but the more delicate yellow and red versions turn to mush because they cook so quickly. Unless you’re purposely making lentil soup or dhal, stick to cooking red and yellow lentils on the stove to preserve their texture and shape.

Sous-vide

Don’t try this trendy method of cooking with most Instant Pots models. The Instant Pot Max is an exception because it gives you the ability to accurately control cooking temperature. If you don’t own an Instant Pot that has that level of control, you are better off using an Instant Pot attachment to do your sous-vide cooking, if you are really set on using your pressure cooker this way.

Now playing:Watch this: Instant Pot Smart Wifi connects your pressure cooker
1:41
Seafood

In general, seafood such as fish, oysters, shrimp, muscles and clams are just too delicate for pressure cooking and slow cooking modes. They are foods that are meant to be cooked quickly at just the right temperature, which is hard to do with an Instant Pot. A few seconds too long or at the wrong temperature and you can end up with mush or rubbery lumps.

Besides, fish, shellfish and crustaceans are easily cooked with other methods, so breaking out the Instant Pot for them won’t guarantee better results, like it can for tougher meats.

The only exception is octopus and squid. Pressure cooking these tough creatures can make them tender while keeping the meat juicy. Just be sure to find a recipe that is specifically for the Instant Pot.

Where are the players staying? What do they do when not playing?

The players, team staff and their personnel and families are divided across three different Disney properties: the Grand Destino, the Grand Floridian and the Yacht Club.

The hotels are sorted by team standings, with top seeds like the Bucks, Lakers, Raptors and Clippers staying at the Grand Destino, which opened last year. Teams that were on the playoff bubble — like the Blazers — stayed at Disney’s Yacht Club.

As Stadium and The Athletic’s Shams Charania notes, when not playing players can attend other games, go to movie screenings and play video games, plus take advantage of pools, trails, barbers, manicurists and pedicurists.

Table tennis is also available, but just singles games. Doubles are not allowed in order to maintain social distancing, as pointed out by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Amazon Luna, spherical Echo speakers, Fire TV, a flying Ring camera and more: Every new product announced this fall – CNET

Amazon surprised us at its Fall Devices and Services event with its new Luna cloud-gaming service, along with the expected updates to its line of Echo, Fire TV and Ring products.

Amazon surprised us at its Fall Devices and Services event with its new Luna cloud-gaming service, along with the expected updates to its line of Echo, Fire TV and Ring products. The event helps Amazon generate buzz as we roll into the holiday shopping season, and for the first time, Prime Day. (The annual sale is usually held in July, but this year it is slated to start on Oct. 13.) That means putting Alexa everywhere — inside homes and out — and addressing privacy concerns, which were big storylines in 2019 for both Ring and Alexa. In today’s life-at-home existence, with millions of us hunkered down for the long haul, the connected house concepts that Amazon has been developing for years have become more relevant than ever.

The company’s Echo and Fire TV products will be its first to earn sustainability badges, and it’s working on reducing power consumption across devices with a new low-power mode and an energy dashboard integrated with Alexa. Amazon also pledged to build solar and wind farms to generate energy to match the consumption of all its devices.

Amazon Luna


A new cloud gaming service starting at $6 per month

Microsoft

The company launched a cloud-gaming service on top of Amazon Web Services that runs on PCs, Fire TVs and even iOS. There’s a Luna Plus game channel with a curated set of games, and Amazon is partnering with publisher Ubisoft for Day 1 availability of some of them.

It has a custom $50 controller that connects directly to the cloud rather than the local device.

Amazon/Screenshot by Juan Garzon/CNET

Ring’s $200 Ring Car Cam will help users document traffic stops, collisions and other road events.

Debuting with Tesla, the $200 Connect uses a vehicle’s built-in external cameras to capture video in the event that something happens to the car while driving or parked.

Lastly, Ring’s $60 Car Alarm plugs into your car’s onboard diagnostic port and uses sound and accelerometer sensors to monitor the vehicle for bumps, break-ins, tows or other events.

Ring Mailbox Sensor: Amazon quietly introduces mail surveillance – CNET

In addition to the Ring Always Home Cam, a $250 flying drone/security camera, the Amazon company also quietly introduced a $30 Mailbox Sensor Thursday via a low-key announcement page.

In addition to the Ring Always Home Cam, a $250 flying drone/security camera, the Amazon company also quietly introduced a $30 Mailbox Sensor Thursday via a low-key announcement page. Similar to the Ring Motion Sensor accessory for Ring lighting products, the new Mailbox Sensor is a little sensor that relies on Amazon’s Sidewalk technology to extend the range of your Wi-Fi network.

“It’s something that many of our customers have asked for,” Ring President Leila Rouhi told me over the phone.

Ring sells a variety of smart home devices, from doorbells to security cameras and beyond. Thursday’s announcements add to the company’s smart home lineup, but Ring also introduced three connected car products at its hardware event — proof it has plans to expand beyond the home.

The Ring Mailbox Sensor is designed to send an alert to your phone when the door is opened and is supposed to work with other Ring products, such as using Ring doorbells and outdoor cameras to record footage when the mailbox is opened.

You can preorder the Mailbox Sensor starting Oct. 8 for $30.
