Peplink Enables Flawless Broadcast for Subaru Motorsports USA Rally Win

Peplink Enables Flawless Broadcast for Subaru Motorsports USA Rally Win

Subaru Motorsports USA just completed their first event since selecting Peplink’s SpeedFusion powered solutions to enable the team to deliver new capabilities that were previously impossible.

VILNIUS, Lithuania, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Subaru Motorsports USA just completed their first event since selecting Peplink’s SpeedFusion powered solutions to enable the team to deliver new capabilities that were previously impossible.

Subaru Motorsports USA is the U.S. competition arm of Subaru, with the mission of testing and proving the capabilities of Subaru vehicles in stage rally, rallycross, record attempts, and more. Connectivity at these events is absolutely essential for their on-site crew of over 20 people to perform all kinds of tasks that keep the race team in the hunt for their next championship. From vehicle diagnostics, live broadcast, race event planning, social media, maps, weather, and even just checking in with someone’s family – connectivity at these events has become mission critical.

The Subaru Motorsports USA team has built an exciting brand that draws fans in from around the world. These fans have grown to expect constant updates, images, and live broadcasts from each event. However, the nature of these events brings the team into areas well outside of any single cellular network’s coverage, so things like live streams have been very unreliable – they work in one spot, but are impossible in others.

The Ojibwe Forests Rally in northern Minnesota is one that the team looks forward to every year. With race stages that deliver some of the most epic pictures and video, they were keen to improve their ability to keep fans connected as they journeyed back to the Minnesota forests for this year’s event. With the help of Peplink’s SpeedFusion, the Subaru media team was able to combine the bandwidth and coverage of AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon and broadcast live from the most challenging rally stage, which is also the most challenging area to get a usable signal.

“We didn’t expect this to work – nobody’s phone works down there. We were amazed that Peplink’s SpeedFusion was able to deliver a flawless broadcast live to our social media channels. This opens up all kinds of new ideas for us to keep fans connected,” said William Stokes at Subaru of America, Inc.

Keith Chau, Peplink’s General Manager, said: “Our technology is able to combine the bandwidth of all the cellular networks so customers like Subaru can have the most stable and fastest connection possible, every time they need it. While customers with extreme requirements are always exciting, these kinds of results are something Peplink is able to deliver in commonplace business applications as well.”

20i Launches in USA With Plans to Shake Up the US Reseller Hosting Market

20i brings their alternative to cPanel into the US market

20i USA

NOTTINGHAM, England, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 20i, one of the UK’s leading web hosting companies, have announced the opening of their first US data center. Powered by a combination of autoscaling cloud hosting, proprietary technology and expert hosting support, 20i is planning to shake up a market dominated by cPanel hosts.

By developing their own hosting technology and control panel called ‘My20i’, 20i customers do not face the same performance limits and associated license fees as those who use cPanel. Unlike cPanel, which can only be hosted on a single server, 20i’s autoscaling hosting responds to traffic load and balances it across multiple servers as required.

20i is also bringing their unlimited Reseller Hosting to the USA. Uninhibited by any 3rd party licensing fees or technology restrictions, their Reseller Hosting customers can sell unlimited sites with unlimited bandwidth, webspace and databases across Linux, Windows and WordPress-optimized platforms.

Customers around the world can choose to host their sites at 20i’s UK data center or their brand new Dallas, Texas data center. Director Lloyd Cobb said, “The location of our first US location was a decision we gave a lot of thought, and ultimately, we identified Dallas as a key central internet hub for the US. The data center we chose is the most interconnected building in Texas – it’s got great latency to both East and West coasts as well as into South America.”

Founder of 20i Tim Brealey said, “I’m thrilled that we’re giving our Resellers in the UK the chance to expand into new markets and Resellers in the US the opportunity to build their business without any limits placed on how many websites they can host. They’ll be able to offer their clients a hosting platform that’s unbeatable by current US providers and manage both US and UK hosting from a single control panel – unavailable anywhere else.”

Co-founder Jonathan Brealey added, “With this US expansion, we can now compete with the biggest companies and still remain true to our principles of excellence in technology, innovation and support. And do all this while remaining independent.

Opening our data center in Dallas is just the start, and we couldn’t be happier. We welcome everyone who joins us on this exciting journey.”

20i Reseller Hosting is available for US customers for $1 for the first month, and $59.99 per month thereafter.

About 20i

20i is one of the UK’s leading web hosts and domain registrars. Currently rated the #1 web host on Trustpilot and the only UK host to be rated ‘Top Tier’ WordPress host by Review Signal, our Reseller Hosting, WordPress Hosting and VPS are the perfect choice for agencies, businesses, freelancers and side-hustlers.

Our mission is to provide word-class hosting experiences that surpass our customers’ expectations, by developing easy to use, intuitive and high-performance products backed by an expert support team.

Solving COVID and Climate: ‘Innovation Without Borders’

The Lens Collective Action Project levels the playing field with universal access to innovation knowledge and the people and institutions that participate in innovation. Set to disrupt the knowledge industry – there’s no collective action without shared evidence.

The Lens Collective Action Project

CANBERRA, Australia, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Our crises are shared. So must be our solutions. Business as usual will not get us there. We need to jump-start inclusive and deliberate problem-solving that engages all the world’s people and institutions in evidence-driven partnerships. The Lens is set to enable this change.

Today, The Lens announces the launch of the Collective Action Project – a multi-year initiative to enable open innovation knowledge for solving problems together. Comprising a massive collection of over 134M global patents linked with 236M research publication records and hundreds of millions of genetic sequences extracted from patents, with powerful analytics, and institutional tools, The Lens is the world’s largest science and technology resource for both public sector, civil society and businesses, built on open data.

Developed in consultation with leadership at the WHO, WIPO, CEPI, World Trade Organization, UNEP, the Office of the Principal Scientific Advisor of India, and leading universities, and guided by the Lens Equitable Access Program (LEAP), the project will ensure open access to shared innovation knowledge and inclusive institutional uses of the data and tools needed to solve our collective crises under terms that make it a community-supported platform.

This release features the largest increase in patent and scholarly capability data and analysis in Lens’ 20-year history, leading to new clarity in global patenting. Using global patent status analysis, Lens has found that of the nearly 14 million granted patents that are currently ‘in force’ worldwide, almost 99% of them have rights in fewer than 20 countries. Fewer than 1% of patents have any rights at all in countries across the Global South. This observation shifts the narrative around patents towards its original purpose of putting knowledge in the public domain to stimulate innovation.

Collective Action needs Connected Actors.

Science, however remarkable, does not solve problems by itself. It must be well integrated with many diverse capabilities, and bound by shared incentives and knowledge. These capabilities – including business, law, policy, and more, are typically found in guilds of practice with distinct types of knowledge.

The Collective Action Project will enable bridging these domain and expertise boundaries and removing roadblocks to science- and technology-enabled problem-solving and the partnering it requires. Building on its newly released Report Builder features, Lens CAP will lead to cooperative mapping of the partnerships, opportunities, risks and trajectories needed to achieve the massive scale and speed we need to cope with crises.

Summary of key points:

  • The Lens launches the Collective Action Project (CAP), a new multi-year initiative to replace closed, proprietary innovation knowledge with open, reusable and shareable public knowledge.
  • Discovery and analysis of innovation knowledge is a multi-billion dollar industry that uses closed data, charging exorbitant fees to find public knowledge, keeping innovators in silos and excluding most of the world from accessing this knowledge.
  • The Lens is a global platform that will reverse this situation, dropping costs, saving the public sector 100s of millions of dollars and making ‘open’ a default
  • The Lens Equitable Access Program (LEAP) ensures a level playing field.
  • LEAP guarantees every human free and unsurveilled use of Lens.org and its open data.
  • LEAP guarantees every institution will have access to an Institutional Toolkit with low tiered fees leading to community-supported sustainable open infrastructure.
  • Public-good institutions in 130 countries across the Global South will get Institutional Toolkits free of cost.
  • The Lens releases a massive upgrade to provide the world’s first integrated open research and patent platform with over 120 searchable fields, powerful analytics, APIs and global patent legal status.
  • Nearly 99% of all granted patents are only in force in the richest 10-20 countries. For the rest of the world, these patents are public domain.
