Amazon Luna, new Echo speakers, Fire TV, a flying Ring drone-cam 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 a big storyline in 2019 for both Ring and Alexa. In a 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.

Huawei dévoile le terminal optique de campus Huawei OptiXstar S892E et la plate-forme de transmission optique OTN Liquid de nouvelle génération

La solution Huawei Intelligent OptiX Network se concentre sur trois éléments : le centre de données optique (Huawei DC OptiX), le transport optique (Huawei Single OptiX) et le campus optique (Huawei Campus OptiX).

La solution Huawei Intelligent OptiX Network se concentre sur trois éléments : le centre de données optique (Huawei DC OptiX), le transport optique (Huawei Single OptiX) et le campus optique (Huawei Campus OptiX). Depuis son lancement, la solution a été largement utilisée dans de nombreux secteurs, notamment les administrations publiques, l’énergie électrique, les transports, la finance et la fabrication, et a servi plus de 3 800 entreprises dans plus de 150 pays. Cette année, Huawei a mis à jour sa solution pour les trois scénarios. Dans les centres de données optiques, l’IA satisfait les exigences techniques du personnel O&M, ce qui permet aux ingénieurs informatiques de gérer les appareils de CT. Dans le domaine du transport optique, Huawei a lancé Liquid OTN, qui permet une transmission unifiée de tous les services, réduisant ainsi la latence de 30 %. Dans les campus optiques, Huawei a lancé la technologie 40G PON, qui présente le taux le plus élevé du secteur pour ce qui est de la liaison Wi-Fi 6 haut débit pour fournir un accès en gigabits.

Lors de cette cérémonie, Huawei a lancé deux nouveaux produits pour le campus mondial optique et les scénarios de transport optique :

Le premier produit est le Huawei OptiXstar S892E, un terminal optique intelligent conçu pour la liaison Wi-Fi 6 du campus.

Le Wi-Fi 6 est de plus en plus répandu sur le marché des WLAN d’entreprise, mais son taux d’interface aérienne élevé de 10 Gbit/s + exerce une pression sur la largeur de bande de transmission, la fiabilité et l’efficacité de déploiement du réseau de transport. Huawei OptiXstar S892E est le premier terminal optique de l’industrie qui prend en charge le 40G PON. Il prend en charge la commutation rapide de protection et la configuration automatique. Il peut relever efficacement ces défis. Il est conçu pour le réseau Wi-Fi 6 haute capacité dans des entreprises, des écoles, des aéroports et des stades, et apporte les avantages suivants :

Haute capacité : Le Huawei OptiXstar S892E utilise l’algorithme d’agrégation ultra-micro pour offrir une bande passante montante et descendante quatre fois supérieure à celle de son prédécesseur. Il permet ainsi un accès Internet payant sur les campus.

Haute disponibilité : Le Huawei OptiXstar S892E dispose de deux ports optiques 10GE qui se servent mutuellement de sauvegarde. Grâce au mécanisme intelligent de type C actif-actif, les services clés peuvent être identifiés en cas de défaillance d’une liaison, et les liaisons peuvent être commutées dans un délai de 50 ms, ce qui garantit des services toujours actifs.

Configuration intelligente : Les services peuvent être automatiquement offerts grâce au mécanisme de configuration automatique basé sur l’IA. Cette configuration permet, grâce à la nature “plug-and-play” du dispositif, de configurer 100 terminaux optiques de ce type en une minute, ce qui améliore considérablement l’efficacité du déploiement.

Le deuxième produit, la série Huawei OptiXtrans E6600, est utilisée pour construire un réseau de transmission rapide qui sert d’infrastructure aux industries verticales.

L’énergie, les transports, l’administration, l’éducation, la finance et les industries manufacturières sont tous essentiels pour une ville intelligente. En plus de simplifier l’O&M, les réseaux de communication doivent également répondre aux exigences de sécurité de l’information. Les produits de la série Huawei OptiXtrans E6600 sont la première plate-forme de transport optique du secteur à intégrer la technologie Liquid OTN. Ils se caractérisent par une grande fiabilité, une densité élevée et une exploitation et une maintenance intelligentes, qui protègent les services de production et permettent de transporter tous les services sur un seul réseau.

Les trois principaux avantages sont :

Haute sécurité : Liquid OTN protège efficacement la production des entreprises et répond aux exigences de sécurité. De plus, la latence garantie du dispositif est inférieure à 10 ms, ce qui est suffisamment rapide pour les systèmes de contrôle critiques.

Haute densité : Ce produit est l’équivalent de quatre types d’anciens appareils, et réduit l’empreinte physique de 60 %, ce qui simplifie la gestion du réseau.

O&M intelligent : La mise en réseau définie par logiciel (SDN) est prise en charge, et iMaster NCE peut être utilisé pour une gestion, un contrôle et une analyse unifiés. La découverte visualisée des ressources du réseau et la fourniture rapide de services améliorent l’efficacité globale de l’exploitation et de l’entretien de 30 %. La fonction de prédiction de la santé du réseau a une précision de 90 %.

Des responsables des secteurs de l’énergie électrique et de l’automobile ont également présenté leur application des réseaux entièrement optique lors de la cérémonie. Depuis son lancement, le réseau intelligent OptiX de Huawei a permis à 3800 clients dans plus de 150 pays de transformer leur numérique.

HUAWEI CONNECT 2020 est un événement annuel majeur organisé par Huawei pour l’industrie mondiale des TIC. Il se déroule à Shanghai du 23 au 26 septembre 2020. HUAWEI CONNECT est une plateforme ouverte conçue pour aider nos clients et partenaires à faire face à ces changements, à partager leur expérience et à travailler ensemble pour créer de la valeur nouvelle.

Ring’s Mailbox Sensor lets you know if someone’s messing with your mail – 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. Today’s announcements add to the company’s smart home lineup, but Ring also introduced three connected car products at its Thursday event — proof it has plans to expand beyond the home.

DUBLIN, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The “The Airport Asset Tracking Market – 3rd Edition” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

An increasing number of companies have introduced asset tracking and management solutions which can be used to keep track of airport assets and improve the efficiency of ground handling operations and maintenance routines.

DUBLIN, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The “The Airport Asset Tracking Market – 3rd Edition” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

An increasing number of companies have introduced asset tracking and management solutions which can be used to keep track of airport assets and improve the efficiency of ground handling operations and maintenance routines. This report estimates that the global installed base of active airport asset tracking systems was over 0.2 million units in 2019. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.4 percent, the active installed base is estimated to reach close to 0.5 million units worldwide in 2024. This includes all airport asset tracking systems deployed for various motorised ground support equipment (GSE), non-motorised equipment (NME) as well as other applicable airport assets including on-road vehicles used in airport environments. The definition of an airport asset tracking solution covers systems based on various technologies including conventional cellular-based IoT connectivity and emerging low-power wide-area (LPWA) wireless technology as well as proprietary radio, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The airport asset tracking market is served by a number of different types of players, ranging from specialists focused exclusively on tracking and management solutions for specific airport assets, to companies that offer a more comprehensive set of solutions for the aviation sector, and more general telematics players that also serve other industries.

Both Undagrid and Quantum have installed bases exceeding 10,000 active units each. Additional major players include Targa Telematics and Sensolus, which both partner with the GSE rental company TCR Group, as well as INFORM, Pinnacle (iMATS) and Smarter Asset Management (SAM). Pinnacle notably partners with Honeywell which has signed a major agreement with Swissport to deploy ground handling services jointly developed together with Pinnacle. SAM has, in turn, signed a global contract with Menzies Aviation to roll out telematics. Other players active in the airport asset tracking space include Litum IoT, EC2E, DigiMobi, Ctrack (Inseego), Tri-Logical, Transpoco, Katlyn International, Speedshield Technologies, SpaceTeam, Geotab, and the Ortus Group, all having installed bases of at least 1,000 units each.

The Airport Asset Tracking Market is the third consecutive report analysing the latest developments on the global market for asset tracking in the aviation sector.

That means Alexa everywhere and addressing privacy concerns, which were a big storyline in 2019 for both Ring and Alexa. In a 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 critical than ever.

NBA playoffs: How to watch Celtics vs. Heat Game 4 tonight on ESPN – CNET

The 2020 NBA playoffs are more reminiscent of the college format than ever, complete with surprising upsets and a neutral home floor in Orlando’s bubble, and now it’s down to the final four teams.

The 2020 NBA playoffs are more reminiscent of the college format than ever, complete with surprising upsets and a neutral home floor in Orlando’s bubble, and now it’s down to the final four teams. The Boston Celtics won Game 3 to come back against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals, where they trail two games to one. In the West, the Los Angeles Lakers won Game 2 of their series against the Denver Nuggets — when Anthony Davis drained a three-pointer at the buzzer — but lost Game 3 Tuesday night, thanks to impressive performances from Denver’s Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic. On Wednesday night the focus shifts back to the Eastern Conference, with Game 4 between the Celtics and Heat on ESPN.

Here’s the schedule.

Wednesday, Sept. 23:

Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat (Game 4, Miami leads 2-1), 8:30 p.m. ET (5:30 p.m. PT) on ESPN

When did the 2020 NBA playoffs start?

The NBA playoffs, which follow a traditional seven-game format, began on Aug. 17. All remaining games will be broadcast nationally on either TNT, ESPN or ABC.

Game 7 of the NBA Finals will take place, if necessary, no later than Oct. 13.

How can I watch the NBA playoffs on TV without cable?

As in a regular non-COVID season, Disney-owned ABC and ESPN will broadcast games, with ABC broadcasting the NBA Finals. ESPN is the exclusive TV network for the 2020 Eastern Conference finals.

AT&T-owned Turner Sports, which runs TNT and “jointly” manages the league’s NBA Digital division that includes NBA TV. TNT is the exclusive TV network for the 2020 Western Conference finals.

You can see the NBA’s national television schedule here, with games on ABC, ESPN and TNT.

You don’t need cable or satellite TV to watch the games on ESPN or TNT. Most of the channels are offered on four of the major live TV streaming services, though not all streaming services offer ABC, ESPN, TNT and NBA TV.

Where are the games being held?

The NBA is using three different venues on the ESPN Wide World of Sports campus: the HP Field House, Visa Athletic Center and a site Disney calls The Arena.

The HP Field House has been previously used to host an NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament called the Orlando Invitational. Its next tournament — featuring the likes of Auburn, Michigan State and Gonzaga — is currently set to run Thanksgiving weekend.

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.

AirCUVE Releases Two-Factor Authentication Security Solution and Announces 6 Webinars

“AirCUVE keeps launching intelligent 2FA solution for wired/wireless network, financial transactions, Virtual Private Networks, VDI, and web portals,” said Executive Vice President GS AHN of AirCUVE. He also added, “AirCUVE is expanding business in the Southeast Asian, Japan, the Middle East and African markets as well.

“AirCUVE keeps launching intelligent 2FA solution for wired/wireless network, financial transactions, Virtual Private Networks, VDI, and web portals,” said Executive Vice President GS AHN of AirCUVE. He also added, “AirCUVE is expanding business in the Southeast Asian, Japan, the Middle East and African markets as well.”

Companies are prepared for the new business environment. It is no longer secure to conduct identity authentication with an ID/Password; 2FA authentication is highly necessary.

Furthermore, most companies are shifting toward a wireless network environment. The problem is that WiFi networks are not as secure. AirCUVE provides a consolidated WiFi network access authentication platform, “AirFRONT”, which is a highly effective security management tool.

AirCUVE specializes multi-factor authentication (MFA) and developed over 1050 references across the world over the past 18 years. AirCUVE’s clients include businesses in Asia, Japan, US, including the DBP bank, Security Bank in Philippines, China Trust Bank, Eastern Telecom, Philippine Airlines, Saudara Bank Indonesia, LINE SNS in Japan, LG Display, SK Telco in Korea and Samsung Semiconductor in the US and more. As the demand for two-factor authentication increases each year, AirCUVE is leading this authentication industry worldwide.
