“We’re proud to have helped bring high-quality coverage of the Paralympics to a UK audience of over 20 million. By harnessing ADVA’s edge Ethernet equipment, we were able to maintain superb network uptime and ensure an exceptional viewer experience,” said Tim Horsfield, director, BMC TV. “We were very impressed with how straightforward ADVA’s solution was to deploy. It also simplifies operations by using established OAM procedures, while its fanless design and low power consumption help to minimize carbon footprint. What’s more, ADVA’s team was always on hand to lend their support and expertise.”

Using the ADVA FSP 150-XG108 Series of Layer 2 service demarcation and aggregation devices, BMC TV was able to provide highly reliable and cost-effective broadcast services. This allowed Channel 4, one of Britain’s biggest television networks, to deliver a rich and immersive viewing experience with every sport at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games covered live and in full. The ADVA FSP 150-XG108 Series enabled BMC TV to efficiently aggregate 1Gbit/s services into 10Gbit/s wavelengths. With its small footprint, redundant power supply and hardware-assisted synchronization, the solution is optimized for cost-sensitive high-bandwidth edge applications.

“The Tokyo Paralympics entertained and inspired millions of viewers. That’s why enabling BMC TV to transmit comprehensive coverage of the games was so rewarding for our team. Our technology and support were key to making this project a major success,” commented Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, SVP, sales, EMEA, ADVA. “Our solution offers advanced demarcation and aggregation capabilities alongside a rich feature set, including hardware-assisted synchronization and zero-touch provisioning for quick and easy service activation. Once again, our FSP 150 technology has shown itself to be in a class of its own for fast and seamless deployment of cost-sensitive Carrier Ethernet services.”

Methane Electrolysis Can Decarbonize LNG/LPG Imports and Achieve EU’s Climate Targets18.8.2022 14:00:00 CEST | Press release

To become independent of Russian natural gas imports by 2027, the European Union is increasing near-term imports of US or Azerbaijan liquefied natural gas (LNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The main element of LNG, methane, is the second leading greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Environmental organizations warn that long-term supply contracts for the fossil LNG will undermine the European Green Deal. The German company Graforce has developed a methane electrolysis technology (plasmalysis) that uses LNG or LPG to produce hydrogen and solid carbon for dioxide-free energy generation. Compared to water electrolysis, plasmalysis requires only one fifth the energy to produce the same amount of hydrogen. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220818005013/en/ Graforce has developed methane electrolysis plants.
