Companies continue driving advancements in 5G technology using carrier aggregation technology on mmWave spectrumNEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On the heels of Verizon’s news last week about advancing both the deployment of 5G and innovations in the technology, Verizon, Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. have teamed up to continue driving development forward by being the first in the world to demonstrate 5G peak speeds of 5.06 Gbps. Using 5G mmWave spectrum with carrier aggregation, a technology that combines multiple channels of spectrum to provide greater efficiency for data sessions transmitting over the wireless network, the companies combined eight separate channels of spectrum to achieve the multi-gigabit speeds. “We have been driving the evolution of 5G technology from the early days and we continue to aggressively drive innovation -- pushing the limits of the technology farther and faster for our customers,” said Brian Mecum, Vice President of Device Technology at Verizon. “This latest achievement is yet another milestone in providing a genuinely differentiated service for our customers on mmWave.”When fully mature, 5G technology has the potential of reaching speeds up to 10 Gbps, latency under 5 milliseconds, and service deployment times of 90 minutes. It will enable mobile connections to happen at up to 500 km/h with the ability to manage over a million devices per km2 and data volumes of 10 Tb/s/km2. Verizon and its collaborators are driving hard to maximize the potential of this developing technology.“Our strategy from the beginning has always been to reshape the world by driving innovation and leading the way in deploying the keenly differentiated 5G Ultra Wideband experience customers can only get from the mmWave based 5G network. It is the 21st century infrastructure that will shape the future,” said Mecum. “Today’s demonstration shows the advancements we are making to provide our customers with the mobile technology and capabilities they don’t even yet know they need.”About the trialThe demonstration, completed in a lab environment, used 5G infrastructure equipment from the Ericsson Radio System portfolio and a 5G smartphone form factor test device powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X60 5G Modem-RF System featuring 3rd-generation Qualcomm® QTM535 mmWave antenna modules.The 5.06 Gbps speed was delivered using 800 MHz bandwidth in 28 GHz mmWave spectrum combined with 40 MHz for the 4G LTE anchor. This band combination is commercially supported in the Ericsson Radio System portfolio and several 5G devices available today powered by the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System.“We are excited to partner with Verizon and Qualcomm as we push the envelope and break another data speed record, achieving the 5Gbps data speeds. This is the highest speed ever achieved to a single device,” said Hannes Ekström, Head of Product Line 5G, Business Area Networks, Ericsson. “This shows the fruits of our collaboration and our investments into technology leadership to enable harnessing the millimeter wave spectrum. The technology to aggregate vast amounts of spectrum in these bands is enabling a new world of opportunities.”“With years of research and development in defining the next generation wireless connectivity, Qualcomm Technologies’ collaboration with industry leaders Ericsson and Verizon in advancing 5G mmWave marks a significant milestone in making 5G a commercial reality,” said Joe Glynn, vice president, business development, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “5G mmWave will enable many new use cases for consumers and businesses as well as enable many of today’s mobile devices to take advantage of its enhanced network capacity, multi-gigabit speeds and low latency.”About Verizon Verizon Communications Inc.

(Bloomberg) -- Gold fluctuated before a Tuesday deadline for U.S. stimulus negotiations that may make or break chances for a preelection aid package.Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will make one more effort to patch up differences between the White House and Democrats on issues that have prevented agreement since talks began in July. U.S. equities rose, and the dollar fell for the third straight session.“The market will no doubt follow the talks in Washington very closely,” Commerzbank analyst Daniel Briesemann said in a note. “Gold could profit in the event of a deal because the U.S. dollar would presumably be in less demand then and would probably depreciate.”Spot gold rose 0.3% to $1,908.95 an ounce at 10:52 a.m. New York time after falling as much as 0.5%. Silver climbed 1.7%, while platinum and palladium gained.The passing of Tuesday’s deadline may have a short-term impact on gold, but “overall the market looks a bit stale, with the outcome and the impact of the U.S. election being an even bigger headache,” according to Ole Hansen, head of commodity strategy at Saxo Bank A/S.The price of the metal held in a narrow range this month amid the fraught Washington talks with investors waiting on the result of the election to provide direction. A Democrat victory should spur a rally for gold on bets for a larger stimulus for the economy, Phillip Futures Pte. said Tuesday in a note.The U.K. and European Union’s chief negotiators will hold talks for the second time in two days as they try to restart the Brexit discussions that Boris Johnson suspended last week.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

TORONTO, Oct. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In connection with the annual meeting of shareholders of CF Energy Corp. (TSX-V: CFY) (“CF Energy” or the “Company”) to be held on October 29, 2020 (the “Meeting”), the Company announced today that Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”) has recommended shareholders vote FOR the management nominees listed on the WHITE proxy. ISS is a leading independent provider of proxy research and corporate governance advice to institutional investors around the world. Its analyses and recommendations are relied upon by many major institutional investment firms, and mutual funds throughout North America.At the Meeting, the dissident shareholder seeks to set the number of directors at five and nominate five dissident nominees. In addition to recommending that shareholders vote FOR Management’s nominees, being the existing directors, ISS has recommended its clients vote using only the WHITE proxy card and do not to vote using the dissident nominees proxy card; for the auditors; for the option plan; and against the employee stock award plan.In making their recommendation FOR Management’s nominees, ISS noted:While the company’s share price has declined since February 2019, as the dissident asserts, the dissident has failed, despite seeking total control of the board, to publicly disclose a plan detailing how it might solve the company’s purported underperformance. As the dissident’s sparse argument is limited to stating the obvious fact that the company’s share price has declined during a certain period, it does not constitute a compelling case for change.ISS concluded:Given the lack of detail in the late-breaking dissident campaign, shareholders are advised to vote FOR all management nominees on the management proxy card.Your vote has never been more important, please take the time to vote using only Management’s form of WHITE proxy or WHITE voting instruction form “FOR” the re-election of the Company’s existing directors in advance of the Meeting.

(Bloomberg) -- Synchrony Financial, the country’s largest provider of store credit cards, will allow all of its U.S. employees to work from home permanently.With the change, Synchrony has been able cut the size of some offices and close others, Chief Executive Officer Margaret Keane said on a conference call Tuesday. The Stamford, Connecticut-based company, which has 16,500 employees, took an $89 million restructuring charge tied to some of the changes, as well as voluntary and involuntary employee actions, crimping profit in the third quarter.“These changes stem from our employees’ desire to work from home,” Keane said. “Their productivity in this environment will help us drive long-term efficiency.”Going forward, Synchrony will have three types of offices: virtual, hoteling and hybrids. Employees assigned to virtual hubs will have no physical Synchrony site nearby and will work from home permanently, while workers assigned to hoteling sites will have the option to book a desk at a nearby office location when they need it, the company said in a memo to staff detailing the changes.Employees at hybrid spaces will have the option to continue working from home or to get an assigned seat at a nearby office at least three days a week. Still, executives with assigned seats will be expected to work remotely one or two days a week, to “role model our work at home mindset,” Synchrony said in the memo.“Our site footprint changes will drive significant cost savings which, combined with all of our efforts to manage cost, are aimed at preserving as many Synchrony jobs as we can and reducing the size of any layoffs,” Keane and Synchrony President Brian Doubles said in the memo, which noted that managers will be encouraged to post open jobs in any of the hubs when the company’s hiring freeze is lifted.Reduced SpendingSynchrony has struggled during the coronavirus pandemic, which reduced spending on its cards as customers cut back on in-store shopping. The firm is embarking on a cost-cutting plan that will shave as much as $250 million from expenses next year after new accounts dropped in the third quarter.Still, firmwide purchase volume climbed 5% in September, the first uptick since the start of the pandemic.“I think the real question mark is, really, how do the holidays play out? Consumers are saying they want to shop,” Keane said on the conference call with analysts. “The only negative or downside to that is we do tighten credit during this period. We are being careful. We don’t want to just open up the faucet, if you will, to new accounts.”(Updates with details about offices starting in fourth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- Oil slipped as nations reimposed tighter lockdown restrictions in hopes of containing a resurgent pandemic that is depressing demand.Futures in New York declined as much as 1.4% on Tuesday. Ireland and Wales imposed stringent lockdowns and Italy’s financial center is planning a curfew, sapping momentum from an already fragile demand recovery. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies warned on Monday of a “precarious” outlook as the virus crimps oil consumption. Yet, Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak said it is still too early to speak about any decision on the OPEC+ oil-output cuts beyond December.“Crude still has issues in terms of demand and Covid cases continuing to be on the rise,” said John Kilduff, a partner at Again Capital LLC. A return to tighter lockdown restrictions “is going to hinder air travel again, hinder motor fuel demand and it’s going to undermine sentiment.”U.S. crude futures have been stuck around the $40 a barrel mark so far this month as governments struggle to control new flareups of the virus. Traders are also looking for signs as to whether U.S. lawmakers can pass another round of fiscal stimulus before the election with negotiations stuck at an impasse for months.“If there’s no stimulus deal, you’re going to see risk appetite in general tick lower,” said Bob Yawger, head of the futures division at Mizuho Securities. “Crude oil is looking at that as a demand indicator.”Both Saudi Arabia’s Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman and Russia’s Novak offered bearish views on demand at the OPEC+ Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee meeting on Monday. Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman called on the group to be proactive in the face of uncertain demand. The panel did not discuss if OPEC+ should press on with plans to taper output cuts next year, delegates said.Yet, UBS Group AG analysts said delegates at the next JMMC meeting on Nov. 17 will likely recommend that an output delay is announced at the full meeting two weeks later.OPEC+ output cuts are creating difficulties for Iraq’s energy industry, Oil Minister Ihsan Abdul Jabbar said at the “Iraq Petroleum” conference on Tuesday. He said the oil market will be more balanced by the second quarter of next year.Meanwhile, analysts are expecting U.S. crude supplies to fall for the second straight week, according to a Bloomberg survey, ahead of government data on Wednesday. The industry-funded American Petroleum Institute will report its inventory tally later Tuesday.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
