Japan – NEC Expands Open Networks Portfolio with 18 New O-RAN Radios

NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) has dramatically expanded its open RAN Radio Units (O-RUs) portfolio with the introduction of several new products and configurations. These 18 new Radio Units help NEC maintain its leadership position in the O-RU segment as ORAN deployments gain momentum globally. The new RU products complement NEC?s existing portfolio to help meet the demands of private and public mobile networks that will drive Open RAN initiatives forward this year.

These launches add new configurations (4T4R, 8T8R, 32T32R, 64T64R) to NEC?s industry-leading portfolio of massive MIMO radios. All the new configurations are built on modular platforms, allowing fast time to market and adaptation to customer-specific needs. For instance, the majority of the new RUs are available in 5G NR and 4G LTE with dual-band versions for the most popular band combinations. Network operators will benefit from several technological advancements, including natural convection cooling, high performance digital beamforming, small volume and weight and aggressive cost-efficiency.

Patrick Lopez, NEC’s global VP for product management 5G, commented, “NEC has been at the forefront of Open RAN and massive MIMO deployments at scale in commercial urban environments. These additions to our portfolio, featuring new configurations and bands, enable us to address the overall RAN market. This is a great advancement for NEC Open Networks, our radically open approach to deliver an end-to-end portfolio of products and services, within an open multivendor ecosystem, that allows operators to pick and choose options fitting their needs and strategic objectives.”

Operators around the globe are accelerating 5G deployments to enhance coverage and network capacity in a wide range of environments, including dense, urban areas with high-rises, urban locations with mid-rise structures, rural areas, broadband hot-spots and enterprises.

Customers are looking towards Open RAN as a game-changing alternative to the closed architecture of incumbent equipment suppliers. NEC has taken an active role in driving the need for Open RAN solutions, incorporating superior radio architecture design with cost and power efficiency and using state-of-the-art silicon and RF components to achieve a smaller form factor with modular design.

NEC will be presenting its industry leading NEC Open Networks at MWC Barcelona 2022, at Fira Gran Via, Hall 2 2F10

Scientology Network’s International Overdose Awareness Day Marathon Aims for Prevention Through Education

 On August 31st, Scientology Network will mark International Overdose Awareness Day with a full day of relevant programming. The marathon is dedicated to raising awareness on the true dangers of drugs to reverse the rising tide of drug overdoses.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently announced that year-over-year drug overdose deaths rose by nearly 30 percent in 2020, the biggest increase in over 20 years. With that, the importance of educating children and adults with lifesaving information is more critical than ever before.

As part of an ongoing global and multifaceted approach to raising awareness on the true dangers of drugs, Scientology Network is airing a special marathon of shows. Featured are individuals and organizations using the Drug-Free World campaign in their fight against drugs. Viewers will see how they bring the realities of drug abuse to the streets, the schools and communities around the world.

The day’s programming (beginning 8 a.m. PT) includes:

-Voices for Humanity, the only ongoing television series dedicated to those working in the streets, schools and communities to combat drugs and other major social ills;

-PSAs to raise awareness of the dangers of drug use; and

-The Truth About Drugs documentary, a powerful and comprehensive look into the true dangers of drugs—from marijuana, opioids and synthetic street drugs to the addictive pharmaceuticals marketed with slick Madison Avenue advertising campaigns.

See the full schedule at scientology.tv/schedule.

The Scientology Network debuted on March 12, 2018. Since launching, the Scientology Network has been viewed in 240 countries and territories worldwide in 17 languages. Satisfying the curiosity of people about Scientology, the network takes viewers across six continents, spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists; showing the Church as a global organization; and presenting its social betterment programs that have touched the lives of millions worldwide.
