Fujitsu, Google Cloud, Mavenir, Radisys and Wind River to Deliver Solutions for Smart Hospitals, Factories, Warehouses and StoresSANTA CLARA, Calif., April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GTC -- NVIDIA today announced it is teaming with Fujitsu, Google Cloud, Mavenir, Radisys and Wind River to develop solutions for NVIDIA’s AI-on-5G platform, which will speed the creation of smart cities and factories, advanced hospitals and intelligent stores. Enterprises, mobile network operators and cloud service providers that deploy the platform will be able to handle both 5G and edge AI computing in a single, converged platform. The AI-on-5G platform leverages the NVIDIA Aerial™ software development kit with the NVIDIA BlueField®-2 A100 — a converged card that combines GPUs and DPUs including NVIDIA’s “5T for 5G” solution. This creates high-performance 5G RAN and AI applications in an optimal platform to manage precision manufacturing robots, automated guided vehicles, drones, wireless cameras, self-checkout aisles and hundreds of other transformational projects. “In this era of continuous, accelerated computing, network operators are looking to take advantage of the security, low latency and ability to connect hundreds of devices on one node to deliver the widest range of services in ways that are cost-effective, flexible and efficient,” said Ronnie Vasishta, senior vice president of Telecom at NVIDIA. “With the support of key players in the 5G industry, we’re delivering on the promise of AI everywhere.” NVIDIA and several collaborators in this new AI-on-5G ecosystem are members of the O-RAN Alliance, which is developing standards for more intelligent, open, virtualized and fully interoperable mobile networks. Such collaboration allows operators to use the same computing infrastructure required for 5G networking to provide AI services in enterprise, industrial and consumer and residential settings. AI-on-5G will benefit multiple industry verticals. IHS Markit expects this 5G-enabled value chain to generate $13.1 trillion in increased productivity by 2035. The NVIDIA Aerial SDK, in combination with NVIDIA Metropolis, NVIDIA Isaac™ and NVIDIA Clara™, is an integral part of the AI-on-5G ecosystem and can be deployed on a single NVIDIA-Certified System™ using NVIDIA GPUs and DPUs on a single card. Solutions for Public and Private NetworksNVIDIA’s collaboration with others working to enable AI-on-5G includes: Mavenir, which is building two 5G vRAN systems based on the Aerial SDK, and will target the network operator segment for public 5G and for enterprise AI with private 5G. Mavenir and NVIDIA have created a hyperconverged enterprise 5G solution to enable enterprises to implement AI-on-5G applications in a seamless and easy-to-use solution. “The partnership between Mavenir and NVIDIA allows both organizations the opportunity to offer innovative AI solutions that truly deliver on the potential of 5G. The joint hyperconverged enterprise AI solutions from Mavenir and NVIDIA will enable industries from healthcare to retail to Industry 4.0 to take advantage of the endless possibilities 5G has to offer,” said Kuntal Chowdhury, senior vice president and general manager of AI and Analytics at Mavenir. Fujitsu later this year plans to deliver a 5G Open RAN system for verification starting with Sub6 band. Upon the system’s completion, Fujitsu and NVIDIA will be helping NTT DOCOMO and global operators with their evolution toward Open RAN in 5G, and beyond. Aerial software-defined implementation reduces time to market, speeds innovation and helps deliver AI applications to enterprises. “Fujitsu is committed to developing Open RAN solutions for global operators based on NVIDIA’s Aerial AI-on-5G and its accelerated GPU and DPU solutions,” said Masaki Taniguchi, senior vice president and head of the Mobile System Business Unit at Fujitsu. “Network operators, including NTT DOCOMO, are asking for hyperconverged and software-defined 5G vRAN systems to deliver innovative solutions to their customers.” Enterprise DeploymentsSeeking to solve the challenge of deploying AI in enterprises, Radisys and Wind River plan to deliver NVIDIA Aerial AI-on-5G solutions for enterprise 5G and industrial 5G networks. Over 6 million 5G cells will be deployed by 2027 to smart factories, fulfillment centers and other enterprise, industrial and public zones to provide localized connectivity solutions, according to ABI Research. “Radisys is pleased to partner with NVIDIA on our 5G vRAN and edge computing portfolio, providing end-to-end system integration and helping industries bring AI to life,” said Ganesh Shenbagaraman, head of Integrated Products and Ecosystems at Radisys. Google Cloud is extending the Anthos application platform to the network edge, allowing telecommunications service providers and enterprises to enable the rapid delivery of new services and applications at the 5G edge. Enterprises can turn to Google Cloud’s managed services and NVIDIA for their Internet of Things economy, and to harness data and AI to drive business performance, improve operational efficiency and optimize safety and reliability. “AI-on-5G is transformative. Google Cloud’s industry-specific AI solutions meet scalable vertical needs,” said Shailesh Shukla, vice president and general manager for Networking at Google Cloud. “With the power of 5G, Google’s AI offering increases exponentially. We are excited to expand our work with NVIDIA to deliver AI and 5G computing at the edge with Anthos and NVIDIA’s accelerated edge technologies.” Anthos offers a consistent platform for application deployments, with a service-centric view of each environment.

The former police chief of Connecticut's largest city was sentenced Monday to one year and one day in prison for rigging the hiring process that led to his appointment in 2018. A federal judge in Bridgeport handed down the punishment to Armando “A.J.” Perez, who rose through the ranks of Bridgeport police to lead the department over a nearly four-decade career there. He and the city's former acting personnel director, David Dunn, resigned in September and pleaded guilty the following month to defrauding the city and making false statements to FBI agents in connection with the scheme. Prosecutors said Perez, 65, the first Hispanic chief of the department, received confidential information about the police chief’s examination stolen by Dunn, including the questions for an oral examination and the scoring guide for written essays. Perez, who was the acting chief at the time, also admitted that he had two officers complete his essays, passed the work off as his own and lied to federal authorities in an effort to cover up his actions. Perez ended up being ranked among the top three candidates for the police chief’s job and was appointed by Mayor Joe Ganim, who has been close to Perez for years. Ganim, who served seven years in prison for corruption during his first stint as mayor from 1991 to 2003, has denied wrongdoing in Perez’s appointment and has not been charged. Dunn is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. Perez, dressed in a suit, tie and a mask in court, apologized to the city, his family and federal investigators for the crimes during the sentencing hearing before U.S. District Judge Kari Dooley. “I accept responsibility. I am so sorry," he said. “I spent all my life on the right side of the table and I betrayed myself. I should have said no. ... I did this to myself, your honour. I did this to myself. I betrayed myself and then I panicked.” Perez also was ordered to pay nearly $300,000 in restitution to the city and perform 100 hours of community service after the prison sentence, which he will begin serving on May 24. In court documents before the sentencing, Perez had asked the judge to not send him to prison and sentence him instead to home confinement and probation. He said he has taken full responsibility, is now suffering financial hardship and is susceptible to serious complications from the coronavirus because of health problems including hypertension. He had faced up to two years in prison under federal sentencing guidelines. Federal prosecutors asked for a “meaningful” term of imprisonment, saying the crimes were serious and a message needed to be sent that corruption at the highest levels of city government carries significant consequences. The state attorney general’s office also has gone to court seeking to revoke Perez and Dunn’s city pensions under state corruption laws. Before the sentencing, Perez submitted numerous letters from supporters praising his good character and the good he has done for the city. Dunn’s attorney, Frederick Paoletti, wrote in a sentencing recommendation that Dunn helped Perez because he believed Perez was the most qualified candidate for the chief’s job, but faced some difficulties in the hiring process. “David Dunn honestly thought that Perez would be at a marked disadvantage ... since English was Perez’s second language and because he lacked a college degree,” Paoletti wrote. Dunn also rationalized that helping Perez become chief would please Ganim’s administration, Paoletti wrote. Dave Collins, The Associated Press
Nvidia Corp on Monday said it plans to make a server processor chip based on technology from the United Kingdom's Arm Ltd, putting it in the most direct competition yet with rival Intel Corp and adding a layer of complexity to the antitrust review of Nvidia's $40 billion deal to buy Arm. Intel is the world's biggest maker of central processors for data center servers but has increasingly seen competition from Arm-based chips. With its "Grace" server processor, Nvidia will be the largest chip company so far to challenge Intel in its key market.

OTTAWA — Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole says he will vote against a bill brought forward by a member of his caucus that aims to ban so-called "sex-selective abortions." O'Toole said he supports a woman's right to choose and will personally vote against the private member's bill from Saskatchewan MP Cathay Wagantall. "I'm a pro-choice member of Parliament, was elected leader of the Conservatives in that fashion," O'Toole told a news conference Monday. "I will always defend the rights of all Canadians and focus on their prosperity. That is my relentless focus. There is freedom of speech of all Members of Parliament, including with private motions and bills." Wagantall said the bill, which is up for debate on Wednesday, is about gender equality and believes many Canadians think pregnancies should not be terminated on the basis of sex. Abortion is among the delicate issues O'Toole must navigate as he hopes to grow the Conservative party ahead of the next general election. O'Toole also won the leadership of the party with the help of social conservatives in the race's ranked ballot system. He had asked to be the number 2 and number 3 choice for supporters of Derek Sloan, who was booted from caucus earlier this year, and Leslyn Lewis, a Toronto lawyer who plans to run for the party in the next general election. Their down-ballot support pushed O'Toole to victory over Peter MacKay, who previously said issues around same-sex marriage and abortion were hung around former leader Andrew Scheer's neck like a "stinking albatross" during the 2019 election, when the Liberals were re-elected. O'Toole did not answer a question Monday about whether he would instruct his opposition critics to vote against the bill. Wagantall said when it comes to her bill, she believes Conservative MPs will have a free vote on matters of conscience. O'Toole is entitled to his stance and she feels at home in the Conservative party, Wagantall said at her own news conference. "I respect my leader's opportunity to make his choice as much as I do mine." This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 12, 2021 Stephanie Taylor, The Canadian Press

Daniel Loureiro, co-owner of Helena restaurant in Old Montreal, holds the trash can lid someone threw through the building's window Sunday night. (Kate McKenna/CBC) Business owners in Old Montreal are surveying the damage after protesters wrecked storefronts during a Sunday night anti-curfew protest that turned into a riot. Helena Loureiro is the chef at Helena restaurant on Notre-Dame Street West, which she co-owns with her son, Daniel Loureiro. She says she was alerted to what was going on by people who live in the area, and arrived at the restaurant around 9 p.m. The front window was broken but nothing was stolen. Loureiro says she has nothing against protesting, as long as people are respectful and follow the rules. "It's not us who make the laws," she told Radio-Canada. "We are frustrated too. We are frustrated that we can't open our restaurants." Daniel Loureiro says they have been closed since October, and offer takeout hoping to make people happy with their food. "Living through something like this … last night, it's just another layer on all the bad stuff we're living for a year now." Hundreds of protesters gathered in Jacques-Cartier Square for the protest against the earlier curfew. It started calmly, but police moved in after some participants set a garbage fire. Montreal police say so far, seven arrests have been made and 108 tickets handed out. Montreal police say dozens of acts of mischief as well as criminal fires are still under investigation. (Simon-Marc Charron/Radio-Canada) In a tweet, Mayor Valérie Plante called what happened "absolutely unacceptable." Later, during a news conference, Plante said it was "ridiculous" and "stupid" that people attacked business owners who are already suffering. She says she was told by the police chief that officers were present from the beginning of the protest, and that everything happened within a space of two hours, which is short. "There's always a balance to find, because sometimes when police officers act too fast it can put oil on the fire," she said, adding that police will continue to be present at similar events. Public Security Minister Geneviève Guilbault also reacted on Twitter, saying events like what happened Sunday "cannot be tolerated." Dismayed by the vandalism Lior Simon, manager of NRJ Jeans on Notre-Dame, says he was dismayed by the acts of vandalism. "Yes, we are all tired, we want freedom, we want to enjoy it. It is true that staying at home at 8 p.m. is difficult," he said, adding that it is not by targeting people's businesses that the demonstrators will get what they want. Carole Lalonde, a concierge for a building in the area, says when she heard the commotion, she ran down to a lower floor in the building to see if protesters would try to get inside. She saw people taking construction signs and throwing them at businesses. It made her feel nervous, she said. "You don't know what's going to happen." Mayor Valérie Plante said it was 'ridiculous' and 'stupid' for people to have attacked businesses owners who are already suffering.(Annie Deir/CBC) Two STM buses were damaged, but a spokesperson for the transit authority says no drivers or passengers were hurt.
