JAGGAER Source to Pay Solutions Gain Momentum in International Airport Industry

gbafNews28

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Oct. 04, 2018 — JAGGAER, the world’s largest independent spend management company, announces that 80% of the five largest Italian Airport operators, by passenger volume, as well as Heathrow and Abu Dhabi airports, utilize JAGGAER Source to Pay spend management solutions for their purchasing and procurement needs. JAGGAER customers include SEA (Milan Airports), SACBO (Bergamo Airport), SAVE (Venice Airport), GESAC (Naples Airport), Genoa Airports and several additional International airports.

The 2017 IATA (International Air Transport Association) global report on air transport shows a growing worldwide trend for the airport sector exceeding 4 billion travelers, an increase of 7.3% compared to the 2016. Growth also affects Europe (+ 8.2% vs. 2016) and Italy, with peaks for airports such as Milan Malpensa (+ 14.1%, airport managed by SEA) and Bergamo airport (+ 10.6%, managed by SACBO).

Many airport operators throughout Europe selected JAGGAER’s Suppler Management, eProcurement, Contract Lifecycle Management, Accounts Payable, Sourcing and Spend Analytics solutions, to conduct a complete digital transformation of their procurement departments. JAGGAER’s complete Source to Pay platform is one of the most highly rated within the transportation industry.

“The airport sector is highly competitive, and in the midst of a strong growth cycle. It’s critical that these enterprises continue to innovate and take advantage of the latest technology available to find value and efficiencies in their procurement operations. We have invested in understanding the transportation industry and developed specialized features to address their unique challenges, and our success in the market indicates that we have listened, understood and responded,” says Ezio Melzi, Managing Director of JAGGAER, Italy.

JAGGAER has long been a trusted solution partner for a wide range of industries in across Europe and the Middle East, collectively representing the transportation, manufacturing, chemical, pharmaceuticals, automotive, tech, and financial industries.

One-size-fits-all solutions can’t meet the procurement requirements of today’s international businesses, and leave companies ill-equipped to deal with the challenges of market volatility and the complexities of modern supply chains. JAGGAER is an ideal partner for businesses that are looking for unique, vertical-focused spend management solutions engineered to meet their specific industry’s needs.

Gartner, Inc. has named JAGGAER (Advantage) highest for ability to execute in its 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Strategic Sourcing Application Suites.”* Earlier this year JAGGAER was named as a Leader in Gartner, Inc’s 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Procure-to-Pay Suites.”**

Releviate Therapeutics Inks Exclusive License for Human Monoclonal Antibodies for Chronic Pain Indications

gbafNews28

Releviate„¢ Therapeutics, a bio-pharmaceutical company addressing the needs of patients suffering from chronic pain, signs an exclusive license for two patent pending human monoclonal antibodies developed by researchers at the University of California, Riverside and Duke University. Pre-clinical studies suggest the RLVT-9-01 (anti-MMP-9 antibody) and the RLVT-14-02 (anti-MMP-14 antibody) could directly target the specific matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) activating neuropathic pain pathways. Extensive recent studies implicate MMP-9, MMP-14 and MMP-2 as causes of chronic pain.

The University of California, Riverside is proud of its role in researching this scientific advancement, and we look forward to working with Releviate Therapeutics for its next phase of study and, potentially, patient care, says Brian Suh, director of technology commercialization at the University of California, Riverside.

50 Million Americans Need an Effective Chronic Pain Treatment

Chronic pain afflicts approximately 50 million adults (20%) in the U.S. each year, according to an analysis by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). According to BCC Research, the global market for pain management will grow from nearly $36.1 billion in 2017 to $52.0 billion by 2022. Until now, there hasnt been a major breakthrough treatment for moderate to severe neuropathic pain conditions since opioids were introduced in 1806, and these are not a sustainable solution for most people, especially in light of the worsening opioid crisis in the U.S. Alternative therapies in this field include repurposed anti-seizure and anti-depressant medications. However, these groups of medications have very limited efficacy in patients with neuropathic pain.

Releviate Therapeutics is using the exclusively licensed RLVT-9-01 and RLVT-14-02 molecules to address unmet needs in chronic pain. RLVT-9-01 targets MMP-9, which recent discoveries implicate as a switch that turns on acute neuropathic pain. RLVT-14-02 targets MMP-14, which has been implicated in triggering chronic neuropathic pain. Releviate Therapeutics will initially investigate the safety and efficacy of blocking each or both MMPs first for patients with small fiber neuropathy (SFN) and next for patients with diabetic neuropathy (DNP). The human antibody products are highly specific for MMP-9 and MMP-14, respectively, which reduces chances for severe adverse events.

Releviate Therapeutics is well positioned with the expertise and capabilities to deliver the worlds first new class of chronic pain treatment strategies in over 200 years, says Sergey Sikora, Releviate Therapeutics founder and bio-pharmaceutical industry veteran. This agreement enables us to immediately start the next phase of our pre-clinical and clinical development of this promising technology.

About Releviate Therapeutics

Founded in 2020, Releviate„¢ Therapeutics is a bio-pharmaceutical company addressing the needs of patients suffering from chronic pain. Our treatment strategy deploys specific human monoclonal antibodies to inactivate certain matrix metalloproteinases MMP-9 and MMP-14 and potentially improve patient outcomes. Unlike traditional chronic pain medication strategies, Releviate Therapeutics directly targets pain with antibodies whose development is rooted in actual pain pathology and in directly inactivating pain pathways. Initial indications address small fiber neuropathy and diabetic neuropathy. The company has headquarters in San Diego, California, and can be visited online at www.releviatellc.com.

T-Mobile Nearly Doubles Its Supercharged Mid-Band 5G in Just One Month

gbafNews28

Largest 5G network? Check. Blazing fast speeds customers can actually find? Check. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced it has nearly doubled the number of cities and towns that get supercharged mid-band 5G, adding even more capacity and superfast speeds to Americas largest nationwide 5G network. Mid-band 2.5 GHz 5G delivers both broad coverage and fast speeds at the same time – and it can even go through walls (looking at you, mmWave!). In places its deployed, average download speeds are already around 300 Mbps thats 7.5x faster than todays average LTE speeds with peak download speeds up to 1 Gbps. With todays announcement, T-Mobile mid-band 5G reaches nearly 410 cities and towns across the country. The Un-carrier is rolling out mid-band 5G at a furious pace, with plans to cover 100 million people by the end of the year.

Mid-band is the only way to deliver super-fast 5G speeds that can reach for miles. And heres the secret AT&T and Verizon dont want you to know: T-Mobile is the only one with big swaths of mid-band dedicated to 5G. T-Mobile has more mid-band spectrum than anyone else, said Neville Ray, President of Technology at T-Mobile. Were the only ones building a transformational 5G network built on dedicated not shared airwaves. And that means only T-Mobile is capable of making the worlds best 5G network a reality.

Why Mid-band for 5G?

Mid-band spectrum is the 5G spectrum. It combines massive capacity with far-reaching coverage to bring game-changing performance to more people across the country. Mid-band 2.5 GHz 5G delivers blazing fast speeds that can rival millimeter wave, but unlike mmWave, mid-band can blanket large areas with needed coverage and go through walls, windows and trees. Which means its a more practical 5G technology.

When it comes to real-world 5G, the only way to get the kind of performance benefits weve been promised is through the critical mid-band spectrum, noted Bob ODonnell, President of TECHnalysis Research. Sure, mmWave can be fast, but its nearly impossible to find, while low-band 5G is easy to find, but offers smaller improvement over existing LTE. With the 2.5 GHz spectrum being lit up by T-Mobile, however, you get the sweet spot of noticeably improved performance in a respectable coverage area. Thats the kind of 5G benefit that consumers are going to notice and appreciate.

T-Mobile has Americas largest 5G network and its only getting better as the Un-carrier deploys more mid-band spectrum from Sprint. T-Mobiles 5G network covers more than 7,500 cities and towns across nearly 1.4 million square miles of the U.S. Thats more square miles of 5G coverage than Verizon and AT&T combined 3.5x more than Verizon 5G and 2x more than AT&T. T-Mobile has pioneered a distinctive ˜layer cake strategy to deliver a transformative, nationwide 5G network for all: dedicated spectrum across all three layers of 5G low for far and wide coverage indoors and outside, mid for broad coverage and blazing fast speeds and high for super-fast speeds over shorter distances for the best 5G experience.

T-Mobile is the only one building 5G with dedicated spectrum across all three bands, which is important since 5G phones will use a lot of capacity. T-Mobile has wide open freeways ready to take on massive amounts of 5G traffic, while Verizon and AT&T have to steal LTE spectrum from their existing customers to broaden their 5G coverage. Using Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS), Verizon forces 5G and LTE customers to share bandwidth, splitting up the capacity so each technology only gets part of it, taking capacity away from their current smartphone customers and increasing congestion.

Now with mid-band spectrum, T-Mobile is building on its nationwide 5G foundation, increasing capacity and boosting speeds for customers. And its rolling out at lighting speed across the country. Engineers are lighting up 1,000 sites per month with 2.5 GHz 5G and T-Mobile has plans to cover 100 million people with mid-band 5G by the end of the year.

NS1 Releases Open Source Tool for Network Visibility, Announces Support for DNS over HTTPS to Flamethrower

gbafNews28

NS1, the leader in modern application and access networking, today announced that pktvisor, a lightweight, open source tool for real-time network visibility, is available on GitHub. Updates have also been made to NS1s open source DNS testing tool, Flamethrower, which now supports DNS over HTTPS.

The importance of applications and digital services has skyrocketed in 2020. Connectivity and resilience are imperative to keeping people connected and business moving forward. Visibility into network traffic, especially in distributed edge environments and with malicious attacks on the rise, is a critical part of ensuring uptime and performance.

NS1 created pktvisor to address our need for more visibility across our global anycast network, said Shannon Weyrick, vice president of architecture at NS1. By efficiently summarizing and collecting key metrics at all of our edge locations we gain a deep understanding of traffic patterns in real time, enabling rich visualization and fast automation which further increase our resiliency and performance. We are big users of and believers in open source software. As this tool will benefit other organizations leveraging distributed edge architectures, weve made it open and we invite the developer community to help drive future updates and innovation.

More About pktvisor

Pktvisor summarizes network traffic in real time directly on edge nodes with Apache data sketches. The summary information may be visualized locally via the included CLI UI, and simultaneously centrally collected via HTTP to your time series database of choice, to drive global visualizations and automation.

Metrics include:

  • Packet counts and rates (w/percentiles), breakdown by ingress/egress, protocol
  • DNS counts and rates, breakdown by protocol, response code
  • Cardinality: Source and destination IP, DNS Qname
  • DNS transaction timings (w/percentiles)
  • Top 10 heavy hitters for IPs and ports; DNS Qnames, Qtypes, Result Codes; slow DNS transactions, NX, SRVFAIL, REFUSED Qnames; and GeoIP and ASN

The metrics pktvisor provides can help network and security teams by supplementing existing metrics to help understand traffic patterns, identify attacks, and gather information on how to mitigate them.

Available as a Docker container, it is easy to install and has low network and storage requirements. Due to its summarizing design, the amount of data collected is a function of the number of hosts being collected, not a function of traffic rates, so spikes or even DDoS attacks will not affect downstream collection systems.

Pktvisor is available on GitHub at http://github.com/ns1/pktvisor, with API documentation on SwaggerHub at http://app.swaggerhub.com/apis/ns1labs/pktvisor.

Flamethrower Update:

In 2019, NS1 released Flamethrower, a lightweight, configurable open source tool for functional testing, benchmarking, and stress testing DNS servers and networks. Thanks to a community contribution, it now supports DNS over HTTPS, in addition to IPv4, IPv6, UDP, TCP, DNS over TLS, and experimental support for DNS over QUIC.

Increasing concerns over privacy and security are driving adoption of recursive DNS over HTTPS. Flamethrowers new functionality allows organizations to simulate realistic traffic patterns over DoH to provide a better understanding of the impact of potential changes to applications and infrastructure in actual production situations, said Weyrick.

Flamethrower has a modular system for generating the queries used in tests, allowing for rich and realistic test scenarios that can plug into automation pipelines. It simulates multiple concurrent clients and generates actionable metrics, including send and receive counts, timeouts, and errors and data on minimum, maximum, and average latency. The metric output format is suitable for ingestion into databases, such as Elastic, for further processing or visualization. Flamethrower remains an open source project, and community contributions are welcome and encouraged.

The source code is hosted on GitHub alongside other DNS-related tools at the DNS-OARC (Operations, Analysis, and Research Center) community.

About NS1

NS1 automates the deployment and delivery of the worlds most trafficked internet and enterprise applications. Its software-defined, next-generation application networking stack modernizes DNS, DHCP, and IPAM the familiar and universal foundations of all network and internet services to unlock unprecedented automation, visibility, and control in todays complex, heterogeneous environments.
