The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA) welcomes the European Commission’s proposed European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) and has suggested recommendations to ensure the Code’s spectrum provisions extend connectivity for Europe’s citizens now and in the future. The EECC is part of the European Commission’s plans for improved connectivity in Europe through Wi-Fi, 5G, and high-speed Gigabit broadband capable of supporting upcoming technologies and bandwidth-hungry applications. However, these applications require sufficient spectrum to function in the first instance.

Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced immediate availability of its complete DesignWare® CCIX IP solution, consisting of controller, PHY and verification IP delivering data transfer speeds up to 25Gbps and supporting cache-coherency for high-performance cloud computing applications. The Cache Coherent Interconnect for Accelerators (CCIX) standard allows accelerators and processors to access shared memory in a heterogeneous multi-processor system for significantly lower latency. In addition, CCIX leverages the PCI Express 4.0 line rates with extended speed modes to accelerate throughput up to 25Gbps for applications such as machine learning, network processing and storage off-load. The new DesignWare CCIX IP solution is built on Synopsys' silicon-proven PCI Express 4.0 architecture, which has been validated in over 1500 designs and shipped in billions of units, enabling designers to lower integration risk, while accelerating adoption of the new standard.

Greater transparency in energy sustainable practice among data industry players will help improve collaboration to tackle rising carbon emissions seen in the industry. In Greenpeace’s 2017 green IT report, ‘Clicking Clean: Who is winning the race to build a green internet?’, many hyperscalers scored highly in the report for its adoption and initiatives on renewable energy, but other players in the industry were urged to improve advocacy and transparency, and to work more collaboratively.

In 2016, the video industry saw the influence of MPEG-DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) growing for many converging reasons. With the accelerated demotion of Silverlight and Flash plug-ins in browsers, only HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) and DASH are surviving in the adaptive bitrate (ABR) format landscape where Media Source Extensions (MSEs) increase their dominance. In the U.S., HLS is clearly taking the lead, at least until the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) version of DASH gets in the game as a rationalization factor between broadcast and over-the-top (OTT). In Europe, however, DASH is already strong. It has grabbed the attention of most broadcasters, pure OTT players, and streaming service providers looking at future-proofing their ABR format strategy, supporting 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) delivery scenarios and premium services.
