EJL Wireless Research Reports Global Macrocell BTS Antenna Shipments Up 7% in 2017

Earl Lum, President EJL Wireless Research

Product Code: GBSAMAF-S-2018

Antenna revenues surged 69% in 2017 due to sAIA and MM-ARS products; MM-ARS market to reach USD $70 billion by 2022; Huawei Technologies Remains Top Vendor

We remain skeptical about the return on investment of 64T64R TDD MM-ARS solutions being 100% of 5G NR networks. We believe that 32T32R TDD MM-ARS will be the volume driver.”

— Earl J. Lum, President

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2018 / — Global macrocell BTS antenna shipments increased 7% in 2017 despite weakness in China and India, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global Macrocell BTS Antenna Market Analysis and Forecast, 2018-2022 10th Edition.” “Initial shipments of FDD/TDD antennas, coupled with growth in FDD antennas, sAIA products, and MM-ARS products supported the growth. Antenna revenues surged due to the mix shift towards higher port count passive products as well as increased shipments of sAIA and MM-ARS solutions,” says founder and President, Earl Lum. EJL Wireless Research is forecasting that macrocell BTS antenna shipments will decline by 10% in 2018 due to the shift towards higher port count passive antennas and continued weakness in China and India, offsetting initial 5G MM-ARS shipments in South Korea and the United States. However commercial deployments of 5G MM-ARS solutions will drive revenues up 234% in 2018.

EJL Wireless Research estimates that the Top 3 macrocell BTS antenna suppliers for units controlled 57% of total antenna shipments in 2017 while Top 3 macrocell BTS antenna suppliers for revenues captured 68% market share. The Top 3 antenna suppliers in unit shipment volumes were Huawei Technologies, Comba Telecom, and CommScope while the Top 3 antenna suppliers in revenues were Huawei Technologies, CommScope, and Kathrein. Chinese antenna suppliers captured 63% of shipments and 61% of revenues in 2017. Huawei Technologies was again the largest macrocell BTS antenna supplier in 2017 in terms of both units and revenues.

For currently overloaded LTE macrocell sites, EJL Wireless Research believes that the use of sector splitting with multi-beam antennas to add capacity may be the most economical option for mobile operators compared with the deployment of small cells to support ever increasing data usage from mobile subscribers. The potential to transform network capacity from a traditional three sector macrocell architecture to four, five, or more sectors per frequency band is on the near horizon.

“LTE-Advanced Pro services using 4×4 MIMO across multiple frequency bands, coupled with the strategy to consolidate all passive antenna ports onto a single panel per sector to support a “1+1” configuration are driving mobile network antenna upgrades using FDD and FDD/TDD antennas supporting 14-24 ports,” says Lum. The potential for a new class of antenna products, active (massive MIMO)/passive antenna radio systems (AP-ARS), is on the horizon as some mobile operators will not be able to deploy a “1+1” configuration on their macro sites and will be forced to deploy a ”1+0” configuration to support 5G NR services.

EJL Wireless Research forecasts global macro BTS antenna revenues to reach a record USD $74 billion by 2022 as massive MIMO antenna radio systems (MM-ARS) for LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G services will represent USD $70 billion of the total.

“We remain skeptical about the return on investment and capacity gains of 64T64R TDD MM-ARS solutions being 100% of 5G NR networks. We forecast a tiered approach to 5G NR deployments with the majority of products being 32T32R MM-ARS and using the 64T64R MM-ARS for very high capacity sites,” says Lum.

AV-Comparatives released its Internet Security Suites Consumer Real-World Protection Test – 2018 (February – June)

18 Internet Security Suites for Windows tested in a Real-World Environment in a long term test – more testcases than ever!!

INNSBRUCK, TYROL, ÖSTERREICH, July 16, 2018 / — 18 Internet Security Suites for Windows tested in a Real-World Environment.

Currently, AV-Comparatives' Whole-Product Dynamic Real-World Protection Test is the most comprehensive and complex test available when it comes to evaluating the real-life protection capabilities of antivirus software. Simply put, the test framework replicates the scenario of an everyday user in an everyday online environment – the typical situation that most of us experience when using a computer with an Internet connection. It creates a realistic setting where the antivirus products must show their ability to thoroughly protect the user’s computer when surfing the web.

Find the detailed results on the AV-Comparatives' website!

In this test, all protection features of the product can be used to prevent infection – not just signatures or heuristic file scanning. A suite can step in at any stage of the process – accessing the URL, downloading the file, formation of the file on the local hard drive, file access and file execution – to protect the PC. This means that the test achieves the most realistic way of determining how well the security product protects the PC. Because all of a suite’s components can be used to protect the PC, it is possible for a product to score well in the test by having e.g. very good behavioural protection, but a weak URL blocker. However, we would recommend that all parts of a product should be as effective as possible. It should be borne in mind that not all malware enters computer systems via the Internet, and that e.g. a URL blocker is ineffective against malware introduced to a PC via a USB flash drive or over the local area network.

In spite of these technologies, it remains very important that also conventional and non-cloud features such as the signature-based and heuristic detection abilities of antivirus programs continue to be tested. Even with all the protection features available, the growing frequency of zero-day attacks means that some computers will inevitably become infected. As signatures can be updated, they provide the opportunity to recognize and remove malware which was initially missed by the security software. Other protection technologies often offer no means of checking existing data stores for already-infected files, which can be found on the file servers of many companies. Those security layers should be understood as an addition to good detection rates, not as a replacement.

The Whole-Product Dynamic “Real-World” Protection test is a joint project of AV-Comparatives and the University of Innsbruck’s Faculty of Computer Science and Quality Engineering. It is partially funded by the Republic of Austria.

The methodology of our Real-World Protection Test has received the following awards and certifications, including:

Constantinus Award – given by the Austrian government
Cluster Award – given by the Standortagentur Tirol – Tyrolean government
eAward – given by (Magazine for Computer Science) and the Office of the Federal Chancellor
Innovationspreis IT – “Best Of”– given by Initiative Mittelstand Germany

About AV-Comparatives

AV-Comparatives is an independent organisation offering systematic testing to check whether security software, such as PC/Mac-based antivirus products and mobile security solutions, lives up to its promises. Using one of the largest sample collections worldwide, it creates a real-world environment for truly accurate testing. AV-Comparatives offers freely accessible results to individuals, news organizations and scientific institutions. Certification by AV-Comparatives provides an official seal of approval for software performance, which is globally recognized.

The results can be used by editors / media / bloggers etc. for free. Please give as source

Alexander Goldberg Jero Choosing Dolby to be the Next Generation of Sound for the Music Industry

Alexander Golberg Jero projecting the future of the music industry with High Definition Music Card featuring Dolby Sound Technologies

High Definition Music Card featuring Dolby Technologies will take over the CD market with in the next 10 years!”

— Alexander Golberg Jero

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 15, 2018 / — Alexander Goldberg Jero, composer extraordinaire and innovator, has made quite the name for himself due to his use of surround sound in composing musical masterpieces. Instead of just listening to the music, Jero wants people to be able to completely immerse themselves in the music as if they are at a live show. When you listen to his works, you go from sitting on the couch enjoying music to getting a front row seat without even moving. The experience will transform how you listen to music.
He has taken what he has learned from his innovative methods of composing music to create the idea of the High Definition Music Card. Using USB technology, Jero’s company MediaInVision PLC High Definition Music Card is expected to have a $2.5 billion growth and 200m GBP shares over the next 10 years. This is an impressive feat for this man who has centered his whole life around his passion for music. Some people in the music industry are happy to be stagnant, refusing to change with the times. However in an industry where technology is constantly improving, it is essential to keep up if you want to stay relevant. Jero doesn’t want to keep up with the changing technology; he wants to be the one changing the industry. That is exactly what he does with the High Definition Music Card.
One of the best things about the High Definition Music Card is how it utilizes the Dolby Atmos Sound. Dolby Atmos sound technology takes what you know about surround sound music capabilities and turns it on its head. You can find Dolby Atmos technology in a variety of different products including soundbars, TVs and in headphones. There are more and more products that are utilizing this technology to make their sound quality incredible. But what is Dolby Atmos? This will show you why Dolby Atmos is the next generation of sound for the music industry.
Simply put, Dolby Atmos is the proprietary audio format that has been specifically designed to offer highly immersive 360-degree surround sound. This is the same audio experience that you would get if you were at a concert live or inside of a movie theater. Content creators use Dolby Atmos to create different sounds in a precise location in the soundscape to create something amazing. Audiophiles will love products that have this technology because it allows you to hear the music in the purest of forms. When you listen to music, or anything that utilizes Dolby Technology, you are listening to sound the way that our ears were meant to. As sound mixers take pieces of sound, each individual instrument or vocals, and places them in the soundscape you can hear each of these sounds perfectly.
This technology works as well as it does because there is such a heavy focus on the details. Even the slightest detail allows the creator to achieve realistic sounds that can trick the brain to think that they are in the middle of the action. Atmos is perfect for this because it really allows sound mixers to place music in just the right spot to create a highly immersive sound. Layers upon layers of different sounds come together to create a magical experience. The music mixer can analyze the music and determine the optimal playback that audiophiles have been craving for their music.
Dolby Atmos is not your grandfather’s surround sound. Traditional surround sound utilizes 5.1 or 7.1 channels. This is still very high-quality sound but it is not quite that immersive sound that audiophiles are looking for. Rather than focusing on channels, Dolby Atmos assigns the sounds to a specific place to optimize the immersive experience. This gives spatial accuracy that tricks the ears into thinking that you are hearing the music live. What was once a game changer when it came to movie theater audio is becoming an increasingly popular choice in the home and mobile audio setting.
This highlights the advantage of Dolby Atmos. The sound quality that is achieved by this amazing technology is absolutely unlike the music that you have experienced in the past. Before, you just listened to music. With technology like Dolby Atmos, you are completely surrounded by the music. It takes over every inch of your senses. You can close your eyes and imagine that you are walking around a music festival, taking in your favorite music. That is the difference between conventional surround sound and the new technology of the Dolby Atmos.
Dolby Atmos has been partnering with companies to create products that are specifically made to handle the high-quality sound it offers. They are continuing to grow their partnerships to cross into different industries. Such partnerships with manufacturers includes laptops, smartphones, and televisions. Video games and gaming headsets are also starting to use this technology to offer users a superior experience. If you have a product that creates music or sound, you want to work with Dolby Atmos. Audiophiles have a keen ear that craves an attention to detail that can only be achieved when using Dolby Atmos products. If you are a music fan that has been dying to find something that means your audio expectations, you need to have Dolby Atmos compatible products. Otherwise, you are stuck listening to audio with the boring, standard surround sound that you can get anywhere else.
Alexander Goldberg Jero understands that music fans want to have an immersive experience when they are enjoying their music. Technology is always changing, improving the way that we do everything in our lives. Music can be more than sounds that are pleasing to the ear. He wants you to be in the center of the music, as if you have the musicians right there with you, putting on a private show just for you. This is the motivating factor for Jero when innovating the High Definition Music Card. A product this good is made even better thanks to the awesome technology behind the Dolby Atmos.

Nearly 10% of World’s Remaining Rhinos in Crisis

Mom Natalya, and her calf Gugu. BDR’s first F2 rhino.

Feeding time at the BDR Hand-Rear Facility

BDR’s Poaching Quick Reaction Team

The Rhinos of Buffalo Dream Ranch need assistance from an impassioned public to ensure their ongoing protection and to save this iconic species from extinction.

The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it”

— Robert Swan

KLERKSDORP, NORTHWEST PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA, July 15, 2018 / — A Very Public Good News Story:
Buffalo Dream Ranch (BDR) is the world's largest Captive Rhino Breeding Project and is hidden away in the flat, dry savanna of the North West Province of South Africa. BDR was founded and funded entirely by one passionate and humble man, John Hume. John, now 76, has bred more than 1,285 rhinos in his lifetime, and he, together with his dedicated team currently care for and protect 1,632 rhinos. They recently celebrated the birth of their first “F2”, or second generation, rhino calf on their project which is an outstanding achievement for any breeding operation. Over 300 of their dams (females) are pregnant right now, and due to give birth over the next 18 months, many more of which will be “F2’s”. This equates to close to 10% of the world’s remaining White Rhinos. BDR’s mission is simple. It is “To Breed Better and Protect Better” in their attempt to move this iconic species away from extinction. They hope this financial year to eventually meet their breeding target of 200 calves per annum.

BDR’s Very Private Financial Crisis:
After investing US$100 million of his life’s savings into this cause, John has now finally reached the end of his financial wherewithal to continue protecting these rhinos. This cash flow crisis they find themselves in has caused BDR to give notice of termination to the private army of foot soldiers who protect their rhino, as they can no longer afford their services. In fact, as soon as August this year, there will be no money left to even fund the day-to-day operation of the project, leaving the future of nearly 2,000 rhinos in severe jeopardy. We simply cannot sit by and watch a project of such significance to the conservation of our rhino, collapse due to a lack of funding.

The Reason Why:
John has always maintained that key to the success of BDR, and in fact to saving the rhino from extinction, is legalised trade in rhino horn. BDR routinely trim horns primarily to render their rhino less attractive to poachers, and thereby limiting the exorbitant cost of protection. They currently hold a stockpile of over 6.5 tons of horn in vaults around South Africa, which if valued at the reported wholesale price of US$20,000 per kg, amounts to US$130 million. Just imagine how much ‘good’ all this money could do for the conservation of African rhino, if only it was released into the pockets of legitimate rhino owners, instead of lining the pockets of criminals! Sadly though, the CITES ban on international trade persists, and the South African Government continue to hamper the sale of horn in our domestic market, and as a result, the BDR project find themselves in this very difficult financial situation. It should also be noted that BDR has, to date, not received a single cent of support from any Government, NGO or Charity throughout their journey.

Proposed Solutions:
There are a number of alternative initiatives currently underway which, with the help of an impassioned public, might just be able to steer BDR through their cashflow crisis, and secure the future of nearly 2,000 rhinos. These include:

1) Search for one or more partners – Probably the most viable solution is for John to find one or more wealthy impact investors with a passion for conservation of rhino, and a recognition of the potential for returns through trade in horn. He is ready to sell up to 50% of his BDR Captive Breeding Operation (CBO) to secure the future of his rhino. These partners would then work together with John to continue lobbying both the South African Government and CITES to ease up the horn trade environment and deliver BDR to sustainability through a legal and sustainable trade in horn. A search for these illusive benefactors is currently underway, and BDR would be grateful if any party interested, and in a position to provide the required investment, would make urgent contact through details provided herein.

As an impassioned public, your role could be to spread the word far and wide in the hopes of reaching one of these investors.

2) Rhino Coin – The second initiative is the recently launched, and still relatively unknown Rhino Coin. This is an innovative new proudly South African Crypto-Conservation initiative that issues 1 Rhino Coin for every 1g of ethically sourced blood-free horn secured in vaults in South Africa. See for more details of how you can get involved. A Foundation has been established by Rhino Coin to ensure proceeds go directly back to real live rhinos on the ground. Rhino Coin is currently tradable against ZAR, Bitcoin and Ethereum, and can be traded on the CornuEx exchange.

An impassioned public could make a real and immediate difference to the Rhinos of BDR by registering at and investing in Rhino Coin today.

3) Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign – The final initiative is a direct appeal to the hearts and minds of a very generous public for donations through and Indiegogo Campaign which can be found here Funds from this campaign will go directly towards the implementation of a state-of-the-art early warning electronic security system which will significantly cut BDR’s monthly running costs and allow them to continue the good work they are doing breeding rhino. The campaign story in this link contains a lot more detail behind the amazing BDR project and is well worth a read, regardless of whether or not you intend to donate.

As Robert Swan, the first man to walk to both Poles, once said, “The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it”. We simply cannot afford, as a responsible and caring public, to sit idly by and watch the demise of this most important conservation project. So, if you care about conservation of Africa’s wildlife, and more importantly saving the rhino from extinction, then please pick one or all of the above solutions and make your difference today.

Mintages will be lower than in 1987 when an estimated actual mintage of 1500 coins was released.

There will only be 480 minted of the silver 30g pandas, and only 80 minted of the gold 30g pandas at the official Shanghai mint.

The dragon boat will be featured on the 12 ounce versions. The mintage will be 275 pieces in 12 ounce silver and only 6 pieces in 12 ounce gold proofs.

The pandas can be purchased at the CoinExpo Santa Clara coin show, but for the many people who can't attend the show in California, they can pre-order online and have them shipped.
