Industry’s First FCC Certified Embedded Module for CBRS Networks

first_imgSierra Wireless has announced that the AirPrime EM7565 LTE-Advanced Pro Embedded Module has been granted FCC approval and is the first embedded module available for Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) networks in the U.S. This enables organizations to operate their own LTE networks in areas such as colleges and corporate campuses, arenas, airports, ports, and warehouses.The Sierra Wireless module is approved to operate in the 3.5 GHz CBRS radio band which was traditionally used by U.S. Navy radar systems. This band has now been made available for private LTE (and other technology) networks or for cellular carriers to augment their existing services. The 3GPP has authorized the use of Band 48 for CBRS so that LTE products can use the new CBRS band in addition to the U.S. cellular carrier bands. Outside of the U.S. and not considered CBRS, the 3GPP has defined other 3.5 GHz bands that are expected to quickly enable 5G services in regions where these bands are available, including Europe, Japan, and Brazil.As the CBRS ecosystem of infrastructure, carriers, and modules roll out, it becomes much easier for organizations to operate their own LTE networks with more device and service options for users. For example, a college campus could deploy a CBRS network to provide unlimited data to users while on campus, or an oil and gas company could provide LTE coverage to connect tablets, rugged handhelds, routers, and other equipment in a remote oil field. Seen as a more secure alternative to Wi-Fi, CBRS networks can support both low and high-bandwidth applications, do not require spectrum licenses and are expected to reduce the cost of data transmission.Part of the AirPrime EM75 Series, the EM7565 embedded module now supports emerging CBRS networks with the EM7511 expected to complete FCC approval shortly. In addition to providing 4G LTE Advanced Pro Cat-12 coverage, including FirstNet LTE Band 14, the EM75 Series has 3G fallback, integrated GNSS and support for secure, authenticated firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) updates and offered in the PCI Express M.2 form factor.

High school football: Benton edges Woodlawn for fourth straight win

first_imgThe Benton Tigers won their fourth straight game Friday night, edging the Woodlawn Knights 29-28 in a District 1-4A game at Tiger Stadium.Benton improved to 6-3 overall and 5-1 in the district. The Tigers are one game behind undefeated Northwood (9-0, 6-0) going into their regular-season finale Friday against Booker T. Washington (1-8, 0-5) at home. The Falcons, who clinched a share of the title with a 48-14 victory over BTW, close the regular season Thursday night at home against Bossier (1-8, 0-5).Friday’s game was Benton’s fifth in a row decided by four points or less. Three have been decided by one point.“We’re a second-half team or fourth-quarter team, whatever you want to call it,” Benton coach Reynolds Moore said. “Our guys rise up when they need to.” Benton trailed 20-13 then scored 16 straight points. Clint Lasiter’s 11-yard touchown pass to Bubba Osby gave the Tigers a 29-20 lead with 8:36 left in the game.An interception return for a touchdown followed by a two-point conversion got Woodlawn (4-5, 3-3) within one. The Knights had a chance to pull it out at the end, lining up for a 31-yard field goal attempt. After a delay of game penalty moved the ball back, they decided to go for the first down and the Tigers stopped them.Benton cut Woodlawn’s lead to 20-15 with a safety after the Knights were backed up to the 1. Malik Antwine’s 12-yard TD catch and RJ Moore’s PAT gave the Tigers a 22-20 lead.Osby scored Benton’s first touchdown on an 11-yard pass from Lasiter. The Tigers missed another opportunity to score and Woodlawn led 12-7 at the half. One of the Knights’ first-half TDs came on a Pick Six.Benton recovered a Woodlawn fumble on the second-half kickoff and Keldric Moody made the Knights pay, scoring on a 17-yard run to give the Tigers a 13-12 lead.Benton coach Reynolds Moore said the game was “choppy.” “I don’t really know how to say it,” he said. “There was just no real flow to the game.”The Tigers played without standout wide receiver Legend Denler and linebacker Cole Horton, who were both sick. Both were first-team All-Parish selections in 2017 and are multi-year starters.Moore said Reed Bearden and junior Shaw Malley both came in and did outstanding jobs as their replacements.Bearden had started two games when Horton was hurt early in the season. “He’s played behind the Cole the last three years and has just continued to go to work,” Moore said. “He’s played on special teams some this year. Just a great job for us.”Malley has also started a couple of games and has generally rotated in as Benton’s No. 5 receiver. “Shaw stepped in and did a really good job tonight,” Moore said.One of Malley’s catches resulted in a third-down conversion.“Clint scrambled and Shaw came back to him and made a nice catch,” Moore said.Moore was pleased with the way his defense played despite not having Horton and lineman Kershun Shepard, who was lost for the season to an injury during last week’s win against Huntington.But he wasn’t happy with giving up points on offense again.“It’s been our Achilles heal all year,” he said. Before the season, there were those that thought defending champion Benton would finish no better than third or even fourth in the district considering the amount of veteran talent to Tigers lost to graduation from the 2017 11-1 team. When Benton started the season 0-2, it looked like the doubters may have been on to something.But Benton has won six of its last seven, the only loss 28-27 to a Northwood team that’s ranked No. 3 in the state. “What we’re looking at here is we’ve got a chance to get seven wins,” Moore said. “The biggest thing now for us is to be 6-1 in the district.”Moore wasn’t surprised that his team wasn’t among the favorites to win the title, but he knew something others didn’t.“Credit to our guys,” he said. “They didn’t say, ‘Look, we’re going to have a down year. We’ve just got to get through it.’ These guys wanted to step up and make this year a good one as well and they’ve done a great job of that.”Perfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.com|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Secret Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unblock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAspireAbove.comRemember Abby from NCIS?

Guardiola not interested in Spurs star Alli

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola is set to end a season without a trophy for the first time as a manager © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 26 – Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola reassured his Tottenham Hotspur counterpart Mauricio Pochettino on Wednesday that he is not seeking to lure Dele Alli to the Etihad Stadium.Reports have linked City with a move for 21-year-old Spurs star Alli, who was named England’s Young Player of the Year for the second season running on Sunday. But Guardiola told Sky Sports: “Mauricio Pochettino has to stay calm. Dele Alli will be his player next season. I am pretty sure about that. We don’t want him.“He is a fantastic player — (a) good, new, English footballer. He’s a fighter. He’s good. He’s someone who attacks the box and is one of the most fantastic players I have ever seen in my life.“But Manchester City doesn’t want Dele Alli.”City host derby rivals Manchester United on Thursday hoping to preserve their grip on the fourth and final Champions League qualifying berth.Guardiola says City must improve their home form if they are to salvage something from a season destined to end without a trophy following last Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final defeat by Arsenal.City have dropped 15 points at home this season and with four of their final six matches at home, Guardiola says their form at the Etihad will dictate which European competition they qualify for.“We have six games left, four at the Etihad, so our qualification for the Champions League depends on our games at home,” he told reporters at City’s training centre.“I have been managing for nine years and this is my first year without a trophy.“Sometimes it has to happen and it happens now. If I extend my career a lot in the future, I am sure it will happen again, but there are a lot of big clubs in Europe without a trophy.”City’s FA Cup elimination was a major disappointment for Guardiola and his players, but he is certain that they are mentally strong enough to recover quickly.– Silva doubt –“Today, the mood is better than yesterday and tomorrow it will be better than today,” he said.“It (the Arsenal game) is over, it is past. We play to win. We were better, but we didn’t win. Congratulations Arsenal.”David Silva remains a major doubt for United’s visit due to the knee injury he suffered against Arsenal.Silva was forced off during the first half after finding himself on the wrong end of a fierce challenge by Gabriel that went unpunished by referee Craig Pawson.The Spain international has been able to train this week, but Guardiola is not optimistic about his chances of playing.Manchester City’s midfielder David Silva reacts after missing a chance during the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on March 8, 2017 © AFP/File / Paul ELLIS“David Silva is a real, real doubt,” Guardiola said. “I don’t know if he will be ready to play after what happened in the first minutes in the semi-final.”Guardiola, though, is much more hopeful that Sergio Aguero will recover in time to play, while fellow striker Gabriel Jesus could also be involved in the squad.Aguero came off during extra time on Sunday, still suffering the effects of a knee in the back from Laurent Koscielny.Jesus is close to full fitness, having been out of action since breaking a bone in his foot during the 2-0 win at Bournemouth on February 13.Guardiola said: “Gabriel has no pain at all, so is ready, but after nearly three months out his condition is not optimal. Sergio is much better. Today he has been a part of the training session.”The City manager is prepared to play Aguero and Jesus together in the final games of the season, insisting that their combination can work.Before his injury, Jesus was preferred to Aguero in the central attacking role, with the Argentina international left on the bench regularly following the Brazil striker’s January move from Palmeiras.“Yeah, they can play together,” Guardiola said. “You can play two strikers or without wingers. With wingers wide, it is more complicated.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

UCLA, Pepperdine lead NCAA volleyball title hunt

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson No. 3 Pepperdine, which didn’t compete at UCSB, returns All-America middle blocker Andy Hein and national Freshman of the Year Jonathan Winder from last year’s NCAA titlists. Fifth-ranked Cal State Northridge, which finished third in Goleta, is led by two-time All-America middle blocker Brian Waite (Canyon High of Canyon Country), outside hitter Cary Hanson (Moorpark High) and opposite Dan Rhodes. The Matadors are seeking their fourth successive winning season. USC’s young team, with three-year starter Joao Grangeiro and freshman C.J. Schellenberg – the 2005 national Player of the Year at Loyola High of Los Angeles – seeks to end a run of four 11th-place finishes in the 12-team Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. No. 2 has too much: Third-ranked UCLA started its women’s gymnastics season with a victory in the six-team Aloha Gymfest in Hawaii, but the Bruins fell in Saturday’s showdown with No. 2 Utah at Pauley Pavilion. The Utes, who trailed after each of the first three rotations, rallied at the end for a 194.875-193.850 triumph. UCLA’s Kate Richardson won the all-around (39.275) and on the vault (9.9), bars (9.95) and beam (9.95). She won the all-around, vault and floor titles in Hawaii. The Bruins hope to build on a productive fall. “We spent 17 days traveling in Italy this fall,” said Al Scates, who has won 1,109 matches in 43 seasons as UCLA coach, “and the team came together quite well.” UCLA seeks its record 19th NCAA title and Pepperdine looks for back-to-back crowns as the college men’s volleyball season began in earnest last weekend. The second-ranked Bruins, led by quick hitter Nick Scheftic and outside hitter Paul George (Chatsworth High), reached the final of UC Santa Barbara’s 42nd Elephant Bar Invitational, falling to top-ranked Long Beach State in four games. center_img Going pro: Cal State Northridge forward Willie Sims and UCLA defender Marvell Wynne will forgo their junior men’s soccer seasons to play this year in Major League Soccer. Both have signed “Generation adidas” contracts – given to top underclassmen – and will participate in this weekend’s MLS Combine at Home Depot Center in Carson. Wynne, who had several European suitors, is considered the likely No. 1 selection in the Jan. 20 MLS SuperDraft. Chivas USA possesses the top pick. Awards: Three-time Pepperdine All-American Michael Putnam received the Byron Nelson Award, annually given to the nation’s top graduating student-golfer.
