NEWRACOM, AdvanWISE Partner for HaLow Products

LAKE FOREST, CA, MARCH 25, 2019 – NEWRACOM, a provider of IoT-enabled Wi-Fi SoC, and AdvanWISE, an IoT solutions provider of integrated hardware, software and cloud connection, have announced the world’s first release of HaLow (IEEE 802.11ah-enabled) products, which will greatly impact the high-growth IoT industry.

NEWRACOM and AdvanWISE’s strategic collaboration to deploy HaLow products enables turn-key solutions for various IoT applications. As mutually agreed, AdvanWISE has deployed a variety of HaLow products integrated with NRC7292, the world’s first 802.11ah Wi-Fi SoC provided by NEWRACOM. AdvanWISE recently developed and introduced the world’s first Tri-band Industrial Gateway, HaLow AP/ Station, HaLow Mini PCI-e Module to penetrate IoT markets.

“We are so proud to introduce the world’s first HaLow gateway in collaboration with NEWRACOM,” says Mr. Karl Hwang, CEO at AdvanWISE. “Our HaLow products deliver the most function-efficient and cost-effective technologies for enterprises to serve a truly wireless IoT service.”

HaLow is targeted at IoT markets, which include the smart home and office, connected car, digital healthcare, smart farm, and smart grid industries. Distinct from conventional Wi-Fi, HaLow products operate at sub 1GHz bandwidth and promise long-range data transmission with low power consumption. Even though HaLow faces increased competition from other low-power and long-range connectivity technologies such as Sigfox, LoRa, NB-IoT, and Wi-SUN, it boasts a higher data rate up to 15Mbps and connects thousands of devices on a single access point.

“Our HaLow chipset is at the heart of a big swing wave in the IoT ecosystem,” says Dr. Sok Kyu Lee, CEO and president of NEWRACOM. “HaLow’s distinct and competitive functionality of long-range coverage with relatively higher data rate will give the IoT industry a great momentum to introduce new, improved and even never-imagined IoT services and related numberless devices.”

NEWRACOM and AdvanWISE showcased jointly-developed products at MWC Barcelona 2019 held Feb. 25 to 28 in Spain and will again showcase (Booth I-427) at the upcoming Smart City Summit & Expo held March 26-29 in Taiwan, enabling diversity of smart city and industry applications.

Emerson Partners with Repsol

HOUSTON, TX, MARCH, 25, 2019 – Emerson, a global engineering and technology company, and Repsol, an energy company, announced today they have established a strategic alliance to deliver advanced subsurface geophysical technologies to significantly reduce the time to prospect and produce first oil.

To achieve this critical industry goal, Emerson will work collaboratively with Repsol to implement and deploy advanced subsurface imaging technologies, with core technologies developed by Repsol as part of Kaleidoscope, its 10-year innovation project. These advances will be used by a broad range of the geoscience community within Repsol and in all oil and gas companies that choose to license the technologies. The solution combines the latest in high-end visualization, high-performance computing and cloud delivery.

Emerson is enabling Repsol to accelerate time to first oil using digital transformation technology.

These technologies have contributed to the exploration success ratio of Repsol, with special significance in settings of complex geology in countries like Brazil, Peru and Bolivia.

“Emerson is helping the energy industry implement the latest digital technologies to realize significant performance improvements,” said Lal Karsanbhai, executive president of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “We’re proud of our collaboration, to help Repsol bring this subsurface reservoir imaging innovation to the geoscience community. It is a great example of how technology and collaboration can deliver business value for the oil and gas industry.”

The partnership, which includes a joint investment of both research and development, will enable Repsol and Emerson to produce commercially available software products for license to help other oil field operators and service companies.

“The strategic partnership between Emerson and Repsol will enable the oil and gas industry to benefit from the deployment of our proprietary core technologies related to the enhancement of seismic processing and interpretation,” said Tomás García Blanco, executive managing director of exploration and production for Repsol. “Our collaboration will build technology bridges between the domains of seismic imaging and interpretation, bringing high-end technology awareness and access to a broader geoscientist community.”

The first phase of the collaboration will provide advanced solutions for velocity determination, including full waveform inversion and advanced solutions for seismic imaging developed in the Repsol Technology Lab. In addition, the collaboration can be extended to a broader range of Repsol subsurface technologies.

Emerson’s E&P software portfolio – which integrates and forecasts oilfield data with production and reservoir engineering fundamentals – and its advanced cloud-based platform are designed to help operators increase efficiencies and achieve Top Quartile performance on investment and operational goals within new and established oil and gas reservoirs. Top Quartile performance is defined as achieving operations and capital performance in the top 25 percent of peer companies.
