South Korea’s Airport Railroad Express Selects Juniper Networks’ AI-Driven Solutions to Build its All-IP Based Communications Network for Smarter and Safer Operations

gbafNews28

SEOUL, Korea, Sept. 17, 2020 — Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today announced that Airport Railroad Express (AREX), a commuter railway connecting South Korea’s international airports to its capital city, has selected Juniper Networks’ solutions for its upgrade to a modern all-IP based communications network. AREX is South Korea’s first domestic railway to feature an all-IP based communications network that integrates wired and wireless networks, enabling efficient network deployment as well as strengthened security and stability through MPLS VPN.

As an important international hub for business and tourism, having efficient transportation infrastructure between the country’s busy ports of entry and the metro urban centers is crucial. Particularly important is connectivity to-and-from Incheon International Airport (ICN), which has consistently been rated as one of the best1 and busiest2 airports in the world, and which has seen continued growth in traffic as one of the largest international gateways into Asia.

Initially launched as a link between ICN and Gimpo International Airport, AREX was expanded directly to Seoul Station in the capital in 2010 and has been providing safe, seamless and convenient connectivity for travelers ever since. With ICN’s continued growth, AREX was looking to further strengthen the railway’s operational efficiency and to keep up with its growing network infrastructure needs.

A major priority was the upgrade of its communication network which plays a vital role in ensuring uninterrupted data transmissions to the railway’s numerous technological systems. This includes systems across signaling, supervisory control and data acquisition, video surveillance and wired/wireless networks.

Juniper Networks was identified and selected for the upgrade – which was to build out a modern IP/MPLS communications network using AI-driven solutions – improving the stability of AREX’s mission-critical systems while supporting the delivery of reliable train services.

News Highlights:

  • Juniper’s routing and switching solutions provide the foundation of AREX’s secure, reliable and flexible all-IP based communications network across multiple deployment sites, while enabling the unified transmission of multiple services
  • The MX960 Universal Routing Platform, alongside the EX9208, EX4600 and EX3400 series of Ethernet Switches, are deployed at the networking control office in AREX’s transmission facility
  • Bringing AI-driven insights, operations and troubleshooting, the EX switches at the transmission facility are enhanced with Wired Assurance, which provides streamlined AI-driven operations, automation and visibility
  • Elsewhere, the MX104 Universal Routing Platform and EX3400 are deployed at the station’s equipment wing
  • AREX has also introduced an integrated operations management system that unifies communication protocols and facility maintenance systems, improving efficiency across operations and fault management
  • AREX can now continuously improve the overall commuting experience with the additional flexibility to expand their IoT infrastructure with extra bandwidth and redundancy

Supporting Quotes: “Since embarking on this transformational journey, Juniper Networks has proven to be a trusted partner every step of the way. Throughout the duration of this project, they have helped us upgrade the railway’s communications network system without causing any operational disruptions during deployment. They have also delivered trainings to ensure our teams are equipped with the necessary skills to maintain the stability of the network. Our commuters now enjoy an even safer and smoother journey and have not experienced any service disruptions to date. This is testament to Juniper’s AI-driven enterprise solutions that support our growing networking infrastructure demands.”

      –  Airport Railroad Express

“A modernized railway communication network has a direct impact on the well-being of commuters and plays a vital role in maintaining operational efficiency and safety. We are proud that our EX Series switches driven by Juniper Mist AI and MX Series routers are at the heart of Airport Rail Road Express’ network and provide the foundation for enhanced customer satisfaction and uncompromised safety standards. Juniper Networks remains committed to helping customers such as AREX in their AI-driven enterprise journey and achieve their strategic goals in the most seamless way possible.”

‘The African Dream: The Man With the Audacity to Build the New Africa’ – A Documentary Premiere to Inspire a Generation of Africans and the Black Youth

gbafNews28

GHANA, West Africa, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The new docufilm "The African Dream: The Man with the Audacity to Build the New Africa" is scheduled to premiere Oct. 10, 2020, with a Global Watch Party on YouTube. The docufilm explores the impact Freedom Jacob Caesar, the visionaire behind this project, has made both as a pioneering business leader and a socially aware philanthropist. 

"The African Dream" chronicles the hopes of an entire continent and showcases the exemplary story of a great son of the land. It captures Freedom Jacob Caesar (FJC), the Neo Pan-Africanist alter ego of Nana Kwame Bediako, a wealthy, African visionary, an industrialist and nation builder who has embarked upon an ordained mission of building a united New Africa, bridging it to the rest of the world. FJC is personified as a spirit, a myth and a unique African ancestral identity. It has a unique plot twist that also showcases the tangible works of Nana Kwame Bediako who has single-handedly redefined the skylines of Ghana and built an extensive portfolio of business successes.

He provides a story of hope and inspiration to empower a new generation of Black and young Africans throughout the diaspora by sharing his remarkable entrepreneurial journey and his vision for leadership in transforming the new Africa. At the core of the docufilm is Freedom Jacob Caesar’s template for wealth creation and his visionary principles of maximizing the utilization of land and property, from a minuscule-scale development to a transformation of the region’s skyline with nearly 600 residential and iconic commercial properties covering over 2,000 acres of land. Freedom’s vision for the future of Africa is brought to life with Petronia City, his planned development of West Africa’s first large-scale industrial and manufacturing smart city to bring energy and power to a continent that will boast an Industrial Park, Africa’s "Silicon Valley" Technology Hub and an Energy City.

Witnessing the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic made it apparent to Freedom how much people needed hope. "This period was also the first in modern times that Africa realized we would have to save ourselves. Our vision of Africa becoming a global giant can only be attained if Africans begin to provide for each other. It was important that I, Freedom, began to share my story with regard to creating wealth on the continent as well as the work I have been doing with The Freedom Movement," FJC says.

He returned to his homeland of Ghana from the U.K. nearly 20 years ago and began silently building in the background for almost two decades what has now become The Kwarleyz Group. The Kwarleyz Group is a diversified group of companies involved in real estate development and financial investments in West Africa. 

Freedom states that "I have accepted the spiritual calling to embody the ambition and lineage of some of the greatest black men in history such as Haile Selassie, Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. Mansa Musa, the wealthiest king in ancient history, awakened my attributes of vision and the power of manifestation that has been needed to transform Africa for the past five centuries." Freedom’s philanthropy work, entrepreneurial prowess, and social activism are boldly emerging as a courageous voice of African solidarity. "An inspiration for what is possible," says Caesar, the alter ego of Nana Kwame Bediako.

Unleashing potential, Chengdu displays opportunities in park communities with immersive shows

gbafNews28

CHENGDU, China, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — A news report by National Business Daily:

Southwest China’s Chengdu is to introduce a slew of new scenes and products centering on livable park communities on September 25, as the city makes continuous efforts to boost the new economy sector.

The special event, hosted by the city’s community governance commission and the Chengdu New Economic Development Commission and organized by Chenghua District, is part of the 2020 Chengdu New Economy Double Thousand Project.

The event consists of outdoor displays and indoor press conference. In the outdoor area, visitors can have hands-on experience on multiple products including smart home appliances, daily consumption products, and public service products from companies like China Telecom, Huawei, and Ximalaya.

A press conference will be held in the indoor area, in an unconventional form. It will be an immersive and interactive reality show that tracks one day in the life of a family in a park community. Products and opportunities in building park communities will be interwoven into the morning, noon, and evening chapters of the performance.

"A scene is a point in time and space that triggers emotional responses," director of the show Le Lei said, "visitors can have a deeper experience of the products by taking the perspective of the family in the three scenes we constructed".

A total of 100 new scenes and 100 new products in park communities will be launched at the event, where Huawei, New Hope Group and other renowned companies will have the chance to promote their latest technologies and applications. Besides, the event will unveil a list of top 100 community businesses and enterprises.

To better facilitate the matching of suppliers and buyers, a platform for the transaction of innovative new economy products in Chengdu will be launched on the sidelines of the event. The platform will be able to broker deals online for products and scenes involved in the "Double Thousand Project" with its functions of transaction, service, and management.

To precisely find suppliers for various needs and optimize the allocation of resources are key tasks for the event. By releasing new opportunities to the world, the event is expected to attract investors and organizations to better participate in the development of a park city on the community level.
