AceAxis Announces PIM Cancellation Platform

AceAxis Announces PIM Cancellation Platform

Unique technology mitigates performance degradation caused by passive intermodulation in mobile base stations

SWINDON, England, October 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

AceAxis, a leading developer of wireless technology, has announced the development of
a ground-breaking technique for the detection, in-service monitoring, and mitigation of
passive intermodulation (PIM), along with a demonstration platform to assist in its integration into mobile base stations.

http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20161003/414455LOGO )

The new solution can help network service providers prevent the serious performance
degradation that can result from PIM in the digital uplink path of mobile base stations, thus maintaining user experience and helping to prevent churn.

PIM is an increasingly serious problem in mobile base station receivers, particularly
as the number of carriers is increasing, bandwidths are becoming wider, and more frequency bands are being co-sited.

PIM has traditionally been defined as a type of distortion generated by the nonlinear
characteristics of passive components such as antennas, connectors, and filters in the RF
chain at the cell site. However, the rapid growth in the deployment of LTE carrier
aggregation, and the consequent multiple frequency bands that are now prevalent in
networks, mean that this ‘self-PIM’ is no longer the dominant effect. Far more significant
and potentially damaging is ‘multi-band PIM’, which occurs when the intermodulation
products from one frequency band at a cell site interfere with operation in another frequency band. The most significant effect of multi-band PIM is that a specific
PIM-impacted frequency band often has to be operated at considerably below optimum
transmit power – by as much as 10 – 15dB – simply to avoid compromising performance in other bands.

Multi-band PIM behaviour has a significant financial impact on network operators, since it affects the viability of purchasing and utilising spectrum.

“PIM is a huge source of concern for radio engineers,” said Simon Gale, head of
research at AceAxis. “Normally it is verified during installation, and further checks are
only made if performance degradation becomes apparent. By that time subscriber KPIs may
already have shown significant deterioration, and user experience will have suffered.”

A demonstration platform for PIM detection and cancellation is available from AceAxis,
and is suitable for trials with CPRI-based Radio Access Network (RAN) equipment. The unit
can be inserted into the link between a radio baseband unit and a remote radio head (RRH),
or alternatively can accept two RF inputs for use with legacy base stations without an
accessible CPRI interface. AceAxis is now seeking partners to license the technology and work together with them to integrate the technology into LTE base stations.

China AVIC Up Town Joins Hands with Architect Robert Stern to Build a Centrally-located Landmark Luxury Community in Jinjiang, China

China AVIC Up Town Joins Hands with Architect Robert Stern to Build a Centrally-located Landmark Luxury Community in Jinjiang, China

JINJIANG, China, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — China-based AVIC Legend unveiled its latest project, the centrally-located luxury community in Jinjiang, a county-level administrative district of Quanzhou, Fujian Province, in March 2016. The 800,000 square-meter urban life complex, to be named AVIC Up Town, stands at the intersection of Meiling and Shuanglong Roads. Architect Robert A. M. Stern, who worked for former U.S. President George W. Bush, will be the designer for the project. The community has a superb location and a unique landscape with comprehensive amenities and a range of high-end homes, including several Western-style dwellings, high-rise apartments, spacious apartments and villas. The space of the residences range from 140m(2) to 350m(2). AVIC Up Town is the largest and most integrated real estate project designed by Robert Stern in China, representing a city-level real estate masterpiece.


Robert Stern was the chief designer for the George W. Bush Presidential Center, while 15 Central Park West, the iconic representation of a contemporary luxury home in New York City, is Stern’s masterpiece. World-famous movies stars, industry heavyweights and Wall Street elites have been competing for a spot at 15 Central Park West since space in the luxury building became available in 2008. Many owners of residences in the building are in finance, including Marathon Asset Management CEO, founder and chairman Bruce Richards, hedge fund Glenview Capital Management partner Derek Cribbs, private equity firm CCMP Capital Advisors chairman Jeffrey C. Walker as well as prime office real estate developer SOHO China chairman Pan Shiyi and his wife Zhang Xin.

Soon afterwards, 220 Central Park South and 520 Park Avenue, both designed by Stern, entered the roster of New York’s luxury residences, assuring Stern’s place as the architect to call when designing a luxury building.

In collaboration with AVIC Legend since 2013, Stern has designed massive-scale mixed-use complexes in two of China’s largest cities: Dalian AVIC International Square and Chongqing AVIC Town. The Dalian AVIC International Square, completed in 2013, is located in the heart of Dalian and has become an urban complex where the city’s financial and administrative staff both live and work.

With this new project, Mr. Stern and AVIC will be joining hands to transform life in Jinjiang and provide the city and its residents with a world-class urban landmark. Jinjiang may not yet be as well-known as some of its local brands, among them K-BOXING, Septwolves, Joeone and 360°. Jinjiang, located within the hub of South Fujian Golden Delta, is home to many China’s household brands as well as to 10,000 individuals with assets exceeding 10 million yuan and 700 individuals with more than 100 million yuan. SM Group, owned by Jinjiang native Henry Sy, Sr. and his family, the most prosperous family in Fujian province, boasts 60 billion yuan in assets. Fujian businessmen have long been among China’s most open-minded, proactive and pioneering and have long held an international perspective, however Jinjiang was slow to engage in urbanization, and, as a result, the living standard lagged behind, despite the relative wealth of the city’s population.

AVIC, a state-owned enterprise, purchased the three centrally-located lots of land that will serve as the foundation of the community for 3.7 billion yuan at land auctions and has already brought in 200 million yuan in revenue during the first round of the selling of residences and office space. AVIC Up Town is now going through the process where the community is being gradually made available for viewing by the general public. The carefully managed process assures maximizing the value for the future owners of the property as well as for the state-owned enterprise. The five-year development plan to complete AVIC Up Town foresees a community with an asset value of 15 billion yuan at the end of the process. The city of Jinjiang is going through rapid development, and AVIC would like to not only be a part of that process, but also be a contributor to the ever improving wellbeing of the city and its residents.

Viennese Ball in Budapest!

Viennese Ball in Budapest!

BUDAPEST, Hungary, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

Viennese Ball in Budapest will be organized again in the Ballroom of the Hotel Intercontinental on April 23, 2016.

http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20160323/347572 )

The organizers promise to evoke most of the features of typical Viennese balls. The
lovely sound, the catchy tunes of the Austrian waltzes will evidently reach Budapest. The
Hungarian specialty, operetta often played also in the Viennese theatres presented by the
celebrated soloists of the Budapest Operetta Theatre, will also be part of the program.
The show will be enriched by the choreography of Evelyn Teri, living in Vienna, the
choreographer of the program of the Vienna Opera Ball and the New Year’s Concert of 2015,
former pupil of Plisetskaya. Now we will present a new choreography of the Blue Danube
Waltz, a dream of Ms Teri, created for the Viennese Ball in Budapest to be performed by
the ballet dancers of the Vienna Opera. And the quadrille…! That should not be missed!
Quadrille has always been an integral part of the program of the balls of Vienna and
Paris. This quadrille is going to be danced – while calling in the audience – by the dancers of the Budapest Studio of the Art of Dance.

The Chef of the Hotel wishes to favour the guests with Austrian specialities on Gala
dinner, also the drinks, beer and wine offered are from Austria. Typically at the balls
of the organiser agency, Rozsa PR (121 successful balls arranged so far by the Agency)
there is an “all you can drink” bar, where all the drinks, mineral water, cocktails and
spirits just as the “Stay a bit longer” midnight snack are included in the ticket price.
But not only the snacks but also the dance music played by an excellent band will make the guests to stay until 3.30, the closing time of the Ball.

The organizers have thought also of those who are less enthusiastic about dancing. For them the off-ballroom program, including jewellery and watch show, souvenir
photography in old-fashioned clothes and other attractions promises a pleasant and entertaining time.

The provider of the name and one of the sponsors of the Ball is the city of Vienna. A
representative of the City will open the Ball. The main sponsor, GRAWE Life Insurance Plc
is celebrating its 20th anniversary on the Hungarian market. Without them the event, the
Viennese Ball, no matter how attractive, would be less fine. Guests from Austria, the UK
and Russia have already booked tickets via the web site of the Ball. We are looking
forward to welcome current and former ambassadors and prominent representatives of the two countries who are being attracted by this event.

The Ball (http://www.vienneseball.hu) is organised by the Rozsa PR Agency,
established 22 years ago, the successful arranger of the Russian Ball in Budapest (http://www.oroszbal.hu,) the New Year’s Eve Musical Party
(http://www.musicalszilveszter.hu) and other balls every year.
