Interconnecting legacy technologies and LTE will revolutionise operations in MCC, says ETELM

By Zenobia Hegde

Technologies in Mission Critical Communications (MCC) are incorporating functionality with LTE, but during this transition period, the performance must not be affected, says Pierre Minot, president of ETELM, a manufacturer of advanced Mission Critical communications infrastructures.

Speaking during a session titled ‘PMR broadband communication – technical implementation’ at PMRExpo in Germany, Minot commented: “LTE offers new broadband and data-hungry possibilities; however, it brings its own challenges. At present, there is a major drive to introduce more MC standards by working with users and manufacturers to ensure services are adopted internationally.”

“The process of standardisation is a long one – it takes time for standards to be tested and vendors to implement enhancements. While LTE is currently being utilised with consumers in mind, it is expected to take around five to seven years to reach full maturity for MC users, although certain features will be implemented sooner.”

ETELM has long championed LTE and TETRA working together, as opposed to replacing each other. This will enable legacy equipment and infrastructure to be revitalised, without the expense of upgrades each time a new technology becomes available. Minot explained the different use cases of migration from TETRA to LTE and the challenges that each of these use cases bring in terms of services, performances and devices.

Minot continued: “As smart cities develop around the world, it is important that MCC infrastructures are built during the initial planning, development, and design phase, rather than being an afterthought. This is the only way to ensure smart cities become safe cities. As blue light services continue to face increasingly challenging and complex situations, there is a need to bridge the channels between individual services, so they may come together and act as one, while utilising advanced applications.”

In response to the need for hybrid networks, ETELM’s 4GLinked solution is the first fully integrated platform connecting multiple MC technologies over a single LTE EPC core, allowing seamless communications and services across technologies – to the benefit of any use case.

“Performance is a key factor that only a fully standardised solution that doesn’t bring any third-party technology can ensure,”continued Minot. “With ETELM’s 4GLinked solution, it is one unified, standardised platform that is much easier to maintain and operate than having several infrastructures connected by gateways.”

4GLinked was successfully tested with many vendors at the ETSI MCPTT Plugtests in June 2017 and all interfaces are compliant with ETSI/3GPP LTE rel13. 4GLinked has also been successfully deployed and tested by customers.

ETELM is well known for its more than 35 years’ experience developing advanced radio communications infrastructure. With continuous innovations, ETELM has overcome legacy issues by integrating its TETRA solution to the LTE Core, which enables its TETRA base stations to connect directly to the same LTE Core network as any 4G LTE base station.

Internet Hall of Fame Inductees Gather at GNTC to Discuss New Generation of Internet Infrastructure

Confronted with the rapid development of the Internet, the traditional network is facing severe challenges. Therefore, it is imperative to accelerate the construction of global network infrastructure and build a new generation of Internet infrastructure to adapt to the Internet of Everything and the intelligent society. From November 28 to 30, 2017, “GNTC 2017 – Global Network Technology Conference” organized by BII Group and CFIEC, will see a grand opening in Beijing. “Global Internet Infrastructure Forum”, as the most famous link of the conference, will attract several international Internet Hall of Fame inductees as well as a number of authoritative experts in the field of Internet to discuss Internet infrastructure technology changes and infrastructure development and challenges.

Since human beings achieved data transmission between two computers for the first time in 1969, great changes have taken place in a few decades from military field to scientific research and even civil use, thus ushering in a brilliant chapter of “era of Internet” in history. However, as “Internet+” and industrial Internet deepen, it has become an increasingly clear trend that the Internet fully subverts all walks of life and becomes a common infrastructure. In this context, the existing architecture has exposed more and more problems in scalability, security and controllability and manageability due to its complex design, inadequate openness and low efficiency. As a result, it has constantly been improved in the industry for decades, but it is the fundamental way for future long-term development to upgrade Internet infrastructure in every aspect.

In the “Global Internet Infrastructure Forum” of GNTC Conference, father of the Internet and Internet Hall of Fame inductee Vint Cerf, Father of Korean Internet and Internet Hall of Fame inductee Kilnam Chon, the inventor of DNS Internet Hall of Fame inductee Paul Mockapetris, Internet Hall of Fame inductee Paul Vixie, APNIC’s Director General Paul Wilson and other global Internet authoritative experts will gather together in Beijing. Meanwhile, presidents of organizations and institutions, senior management of Internet companies and global operator representatives will also be invited to attend the conference, focusing on technological change, infrastructure development, root server, new opportunities and challenges and other directions, and exploring that how will Internet infrastructure fully upgrade to adapt to the new world of Internet of Everything in the rapid application of IPv6, SDN and other network technology.

As the largest network technology event in China, there will be more than 2000 elites attending the conference. It will set up two main sessions, one roundtable forum, eight technical summits (SDN, NFV, IPv6, 5G, NB-IoT, Network Security, Cloud and Data Center, Edge Computing) and a number of workshops (P4, the Third Network, CORD, ONAP, etc.). By providing a platform for the parties to communicate and exchange, it is dedicated to promoting win-win cooperation and the process of network reconstruction.

Crumbling Infrastructure Gets an AI Assist

By George Leopold

A deep learning application developed by Japan’s Fujitsu Ltd. seeks to assist structural engineers in assessing the state of degradation in aging bridges and other infrastructure. The framework applies sensor data analysis technology that can help gauge internal damage to bridges and fine tune maintenance requirements.

Fujitsu Laboratories said its deep learning platform aggregates vibration data collected by surface-mounted sensors to help gauge structural deterioration to improve maintenance of crumbling infrastructure. The approach could replace or augment visual inspections by probing deeper to determined levels of internal structural damage.

While the state of disrepair among U.S. bridges is well documented, with an estimated 130,000 bridges either structurally deficient of functionally obsolete, Japan has another problem the technology could address: a lack of structural engineers to monitor its sprawling and aging infrastructure. Bridge inspections also are expensive, making them a low priority for cash-strapped municipalities.

Fujitsu said its proprietary deep learning approach leverages time-series data using an analytics method called topical data analysis. Earlier research by the company addressed the problem of accurately classifying volatile time-series data generated by Internet of Things and other devices. Previously, it was difficult to discern patterns in these data.

Fujitsu Laboratories touts its deep learning approach as using advanced mathematical techniques to extract geometric features from time-series data, enabling highly accurate classification of raw data.

Researchers found they could extrapolate data captured by an acceleration sensor at a single location to estimate the level of bridge deterioration “across a wide area of a bridge’s interior….” The approach also would allow early detection of internal stresses so that repairs could be scheduled before deterioration spread.

Source: Fujitsu Labs

The approach was validated using data obtained from verification tests of fatigue degradation of bridges carried out by the Research Association for Infrastructure Monitoring System, which conducts research into technologies used in industrial applications.

Fujitsu combined its deep learning approach with vibration data collected from acceleration tests. “The results showed that the geometric characteristics extracted from the vibration data by this technology would appear as a single cluster when the bridge was intact, but the shape changes when the bridge had developed internal damage,” the company reported.

Researchers also confirmed the degree and rate of deterioration that was calculated by converting the geometric characteristics to numerical values corresponding with the results measured by strain sensors embedded within a bridge deck.

Tokyo-based Fujitsu (TYO: 6702) said Monday (Aug. 28) its deep learning application would be detailed at the Japan Society of Civil Engineers 2017 Annual Meeting to be held at Kyushu University from Sept. 11 to 13. It plans to conduct trials of using vibration data from bridges with the goal of deploying the technology as early as 2018.
