Globe Telecom partners with Gilat Satellite Networks E-mail

Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd, an Israeli firm that provides satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced on 11 September that Philippine-based Globe Telecom, Inc. had chosen Gilat for a five-year multi-million-dollar managed service contract, to enable accelerated deployment for the mobile operator’s rapid network expansion throughout the country.

Gilat, headquartered in Petah Tika, is to deliver its leading satellite backhaul for cellular network as a managed service to provide data and voice services over 2G/3G/LTE to all regions requiring improved connectivity and broadband access, while maintaining a strict service level agreement.

This service will enable Globe to provide voice and data coverage over satellite in the challenging terrain of the Philippines.

“This is a breakthrough project for Globe. By using Gilat’s innovative VSAT technology, we can deliver mobile broadband data services in remote rural areas that previously had no connectivity, in a cost effective manner. At the same time, this will allow us to quickly augment our transmission capacity in our 4G network to meet everincreasing mobile data usage. Moreover, this innovative VSAT technology will be used to provide for rapid disaster communications in combination with networkin-a-box technology during catastrophic incidences. We envision this project to improve the delivery of our mobile broadband network for quality and excellent user experience to our customers, especially in remote rural areas,” said Emmanuel Estrada, Globe Senior Vice President for Technical Service Design.

Chinese millionaire to set up AI lab in Haifa E-mail

Zong Qinghou, the CEO of one of China’s largest companies, has announced plans to set up a research centre at the University of Haifa, focusing on artificial intelligence (AI).

Zong will provide the AI centre with at least US$10 million over five years, the research partners announced at a signing event in September. Much of the funding will go to constructing laboratories and obtaining high-end equipment, the University of Haifa’s President Ron Robin said.

“For us, this is a gamechanger. We get recognition by a major Chinese investor, that the work that we’re doing is significant,” Robin told The Jerusalem Post.

Zong, who heads the Hangzhou Wahaha Group, China’s largest beverage company, has visited the University of Haifa’s campus four times.

The research centre will focus on improving the camera lens behind driverless cars – necessary for operating a vehicle when it’s raining or foggy – as major automobile companies and tech companies race to perfect the technology in the multi-billion-dollar autonomous vehicle market.

“We have developed a series of cameras that are able to reproduce very high-level resolution movies using a very small number of pixels. And coming from our marine sciences [research], we’ve developed a camera that takes high-resolution shots even when it’s under water. One of our researchers developed a camera that can take underwater pictures at great depth with virtually no light,” Robin said.

Taiwan legislator aims to boost high-tech platform with Israel E-mail

Taiwan Legislator Hsu Yujen spearheaded the recent launch of the Taiwan Israel Innovation Platform, aiming to boost high-tech exchanges between the two nations. On a governmental level, Israel’s Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei is also assisting with the initiative.

Hsu came up with the idea of the platform after his trip to Israel last year. The platform could help promote exchanges between the two countries’ private, public and academic sectors on several fronts, including information security, water-related infrastructure, agricultural technologies, augmented and virtual reality applications, selfdriving cars and artificial intelligence, Hsu explained. The platform could also help Israeli companies find Taiwanese firms for merger or acquisition opportunities.

Hsu added that he hopes Israeli incubators would invite Taiwanese firms to set up their own incubators in Israel, so that Taiwanese innovative startups have more chances to meet Israeli investors.

The lawmaker said he plans to take two delegations of Taiwanese businesspeople or students to Israel every year to explore and exchange innovative ideas.

Citing the Global Innovation Index, Hsu said that Israel has supplanted the US, Denmark and Sweden to become the global leader in terms of the density of researchers, gross expenditure on research and development, and the number of innovation linkages.
