Telefonica to trial TIP private 5G network system

first_img Diana Goovaerts Tags Luz verde a la fusión entre Telefónica y Liberty Global en el Reino Unido Home Telefonica to trial TIP private 5G network system Telefónica refuerza la seguridad de las cadenas de bloques Telefonica lined up to test a new approach to private 5G networks being developed by a Telecom Infra Project (TIP) working group formed this week, which the research outfit claimed would deliver improved economics and flexibility over traditional approaches.Juan Carlos Garcia, SVP of technology innovation and ecosystem at Telefonica and TIP board director, stated the project would help operators “address the exciting opportunities that 5G is creating in the enterprise segment, both through valuable features for our customers and more efficient network operations”.TIP said the 5G Private Network Solutions Group was established to tackle weaknesses in the economics and operational flexibilty of traditional network architectures in enterprise scenarios.The group will create an open, cloud-native architecture for private 5G networks, incorporating elements of a Continuous Integration Continuous Delivery Deployment (CI/CD) platform previously created by TIP’s OpenRAN project group.Telefonica will conduct laboratory tests of the working group’s system at its TIP Community Lab in Madrid before field tests in Malaga.Key goals for the project include delivery of high-performance 5G connectivity and edge computing infrastructure covering multiple enterprise verticals; improved network economics through the use of commoditised hardware, open source software and automation; and better network security.Private networks have been a hot topic of late: at MWC Shanghai last month, Nokia president and CEO Pekka Lundmark tipped spending to exceed traditional public networks in the next decade, citing “huge appetite” from industry.

Girls Basketball Preview

first_imgPierson senior Chastin Giles finished last season averaging 12 points per game on 82 field goals, 21 three-pointers, and 60 free throws. Independent/Gordon M. GrantA feisty pair has returned to Pierson’s basketball court.Senior point guard Chastin Giles and sophomore guard Sofia Mancino bring back all the grit that first-year head coach Woody Kneeland will be looking for after the Whalers graduated 10 seniors from last year’s squad, including his niece, Katie Kneeland, who led the team in points (377).“Chastin is tough as nails, so is Sofia,” Kneeland said. “Sofia is a vocal leader where Chastin leads by her play. Both make their teammates better.”The pair will steer a 10-girl roster, but Kneeland said he looks at it as he’s 10 players deep, knowing the girls who returned and many of the younger ones joining having coached the junior varsity team while being an assistant on varsity under former head coach Kevin Barron the last two seasons. His brother George, Katie’s father, who has worked with the basketball teams at Pierson at different levels over the last 18 years, also returns as an assistant.“There’s a lot of new kids coming up and there’s definitely an inexperienced factor, but they’re all great players,” Kneeland said. “I’ve been putting them through the ringer with the best of the Class A school during the nonleague games (0-3 against Eastport-South Manor, Westhampton Beach, and Sayville). I’m making it tough for them because I want them to learn quickly.”The Whalers JV team, along with the varsity girls, finished their league schedules undefeated last season. From his old team he’ll be looking for Grace Perello, who the coach said has a “scorer’s mentality,” to contribute some of what was lost with the departure of his niece, but said he sees all the girls being big contributors on either side of the court down the line. Heidi Wilson replaces Kneeland as the JV coach.“We’re more balanced than last year,” he said. “Once we get rolling and get some confidence, we’ll be there.”The coach said if any opponent thinks taking Giles (287 points last season) out of the game is an automatic win, he’d ask them to think again.“It’s not going to work,” Kneeland said.He’ll still be looking to her tremendously though.“Chastin is a college-level basketball player,” he said. “She helps the other girls get easier baskets too because she gets them in the right spots.”Senior guard and forward Mahlia Hemby is also returning, along with classmates Kathryn Powell, a center, and Kneeland’s daughter, Halle, a guard, both of whom rejoin the Whalers after not playing last season.“Kathryn is strong on offense and defense. Halle adds to the defensive side,” Kneeland said. “They’re going to play.”There’s been a consistent basketball culture in Pierson as of late, with the teams making the postseason the last six seasons, and Kneeland is hoping this year is no different. The Whalers are looking to defend their Suffolk County title won last year while going 17-3 overall.“They’re a fast, tough bunch. They’re some of the fastest kids I’ve seen,” Kneeland said, laughing. “The athleticism is there. They also play great defense. These girls are going to have a complete game soon and I’m excited about it.”Pierson will play Hampton Bays on the road in the Whalers’ first League VII game of the season on Wednesday, December 11, at 5:45 PM. The team travels to Port Jefferson December 16 for a 4:30 PM matchup.Hurricanes Have Room To GrowAlthough losing just one senior to graduation, Westhampton head coach Katie Peters says the absence of center/forward Lindsay Rongo creates a completely different dynamic within her team.“Lindsay Rongo was big for us,” she said. “She was a strong defensive player, was a leader both on and off the court. She was also good for putting in eight to 12 points when we needed it. She was a spark when we needed it, and would recognize that.”That’s not to say she doesn’t think she has the talent to fill her shoes.Peters thinks returning juniors Molly Skorobohaty and Caroline Henke could do just that.“They play strong defense. They hustle,” the coach said. “And they have experience with valuable game minutes.”Young returners with lots of playing time are Rongo’s younger sister Olivia (132 points last season), a guard, who started multiple games as a freshman, and sophomore guard Molly McCarthy (180 points), who the coach said is more confident this season.She expects big things from both girls, but will be leaning on seniors Belle Smith (453 points last season) and Layla Mendoza (132 points) to lead the way.Smith, an All-American lacrosse standout and All-County volleyball player surpassed 1300 points last season to break the Hurricanes’ scoring record. Smith has a good on-court chemistry with Mendoza, who missed the second half of the 2018-19 season with a torn ACL.“They’re picking up right where they left off,” Peters said. “Layla has a strong interior post game. She’s fast, she’s athletic, she can jump. She and Belle are a dynamic duo. It’s tough to stop both of them.”Junior Amanda White, who played at St. Anthony’s the last two seasons, will be added value at guard, classmate Ella Donneson will aid under the boards, and sophomore Molly Mensch will add points fighting from the post. Donneson and Mensch are both up from the JV team.“There’s a lot of room for us to grow in a lot of ways on both ends of the court,” Peters said. “We’ve talked about getting back to where we were, but understand there’s a lot of games to play. We’re going to take it game by game. We can’t overlook anybody. Each day we’ll try to play our best and be our best and let the chips fall where they will.”Mendoza finished Westhampton’s League VI-opening 50-39 win over Elwood-John Glenn December 6 with 25 points and 10 rebounds, and Smith had 13 points, 10 steals, and six rebounds. The Hurricanes traveled to Bayport-Blue Point December 10, but results were not available by press time.Southampton Also Replacing Key PlayerSouthampton will be without Taylor Pike, the Mariners’ primary ball hander in 2018, who scored 256 points last season.The team fell one win short of making the playoffs, and Pike’s 13.5 points-per-game average was a major contributing factor in that. But there is talent returning to this League VII team, too.Sophomore point guard Madison Taylor is a travel basketball player who finished with 142 points last season; sophomore Gabby Arnold will continue guarding against opponent’s toughest competitors (75 points); and junior guard/forward Cristine Delgado led the team in minutes last season and is a strong defender who stays out of foul trouble (109). Back on the team is Ishanti Gumbs. She played for Riverhead last season and finished the season with 150 points as a junior.Senior Alysha Thomas (68 points), captains this Mariners team with classmate Caraline Oakley (60). Thomas competed on the same Amateur Athletic Union team during the offseason as Gumbs and Taylor.Sophomore Carli Cameron, from the soccer team, is up from JV, and juniors Riley Zorko and Bimela Ramkhelawan are also new additions.The Mariners started the season with a 71-36 win over Smithtown Christian December 6. Delgado had 15 points, five steals, and three assists; Taylor scored 11 points; Oakley had eight points and 15 rebounds; and Thomas added eight points and 12 rebounds.East Hampton Looking To BuildEast Hampton is hoping to improve upon its one-win 2018-19 season, but will have to do so while also bumping up to face new League V opponents.As with other schools, just one player, Connie Chan, graduated from last year’s team.Seniors Emma Silvera (98 points), Alden Powers (14), Tia Weiss (41), Emily Brewer (53), and Kailey Marmeno (31) have returned along with juniors Paige Cardone (74) and Eva Wojtusiak (19). Ashley Peters and Armani Gordon are new seniors joining the varsity squad with freshmen Baye Bogetti, Caroline DiSunno, and Claire McGovern.

6th man surrenders in Simpson’s Vegas armed robbery case

first_imgBy Ken Ritter THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS – The sixth and final man sought in the armed robbery case against O.J. Simpson has surrendered in court. Charles Bruce Ehrlich of Miami was taken into custody in Las Vegas after a brief hearing before a judge who set his bail at $32,000. Ehrlich’s lawyer, John Moran Jr., said Ehrlich will plead not guilty. “He’s not a principal in this thing,” Moran said of allegations that Ehrlich joined Simpson and the other men in kidnapping and stealing sports memorabilia from two collectors last week. Moran called Ehrlich an acquaintance of Simpson’s, and expected his client to post bail and return to Florida later Friday. Ehrlich, 53, faces the same charges as four other co-defendants, including Charles Cashmore, who was arraigned minutes earlier on charges including kidnapping, armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. A kidnapping conviction could result in a sentence of life in prison with parole. Simpson faces one additional charge of felony coercion. Cashmore’s lawyer, Edward Miley, acknowledged that Cashmore has a 1997 conviction in a Utah bad check case, and has a bad check charge pending in Las Vegas. Prosecutors accuse Simpson of leading the five men as they burst into a hotel room at a Las Vegas casino, displayed guns, and stole autographed footballs and other collectible items. Authorities allege that the suspects went to the hotel room on the pretext of brokering a deal with Alfred Beardsley, 46, an accuser along with Bruce Fromong. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
