LightPointe’s 60 GHz Point-to-Point Radios Selected by a Leading Building Component Manufacturer

first_imgLightPointe has deployed its Gigabit capacity AireLink 60 radios for a major manufacturer in the building components industry, Panel Specialists, Inc. Panel Specialists has multiple buildings which needed connection to its Local Area Network. The company has installed both upper millimeter wave and laser technology wireless bridges, and has repeatedly turned to LightPointe for backhaul solutions.Five years ago, Panel Specialists installed their first LightPointe Wireless Fiber link. They have now acquired more building and thus were looking at deploying more wireless links. The AireLink 60 was selected to connect the buildings due to its all-weather operation, licensee free operation, and nine levels of Adaptive Coding and Modulation which continuously optimizes the links.Enterprises, telecom carriers, and government agencies install wireless bridges to avoid trenching for fiber, or avoid never-ending leased line fees. Today’s wireless bridges are extremely secure and can provide better data security than public networks, which helps avoid cybersecurity threats.

Tampilkan Sepasang Gay, Iklan Cathay Pacific Tuai Kontroversi

first_imgSumber: istimewa Sesuatu yang nyeleneh memang dapat dengan cepat mendapatkan perhatian, mulai dari penampilan hingga iklan. Mungkin sebagaian dari Anda masih ingat dengan perkara iklan salah satu maskapai asal Asia Tenggara, AirAsia yang mempublikasian sebuah iklan yang diterjemahkan oleh warganet mengandung isu seksis – padahal ini merupakan cara yang ditempuh pihak AirAsia dalam menyebar-luaskan promo yang kala itu terjadi pada akhir tahun 2017.Baca Juga: Iklan Menjurus Seksis, AirAsia Menuai Kecaman dari NetizenKali ini ada lagi maskapai yang tersandung kasus-nyaris-serupa adalah flag carrier Hong Kong, Cathay Pacific. Sebagaimana yang dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman onemileatatime.com (20/5/2019), beberapa minggu yang lalu Cathay Pacific baru saja merubah slogan mereka dari “Life Well Travelled” menjadi “Move Beyond”. Seperti yang sudah disebutkan di atas, cara nyeleneh merupakan upaya yang bisa dibilang ampuh untuk mendongkrak nilai pamor, dan cara inilah yang dilakukan oleh Cathay Pacific dalam mempromosikan slogan terbarunya ini.Dalam salah satu kampanye iklan, pihak Cathay Pacific menampilkan sepasang gay (homoseksual) yang tengah berjalan di pinggir pantai sembari berpegangan tangan. Tidak hanya itu, Cathay Pacific juga menambahkan tagline ”Move Beyond Labels”.Jika digambarkan lebih mendalam lagi, kedua orang penyuka sesama jenis ini berbalutkan pakaian necis, mengenakan jas, namun bertelanjang kaki. Satu orang di sebelah kiri mengenakan baju warna biru tua, sedangkan yang satunya lagi mengenakan setelan hitam-hitam.Sama seperti di Indonesia, tentu saja iklan yang dilayangkan oleh pihak maskapai ini mengundang kontroversi dan bahkan dilarang untuk tayang di Hong Kong. Pernyataan tersebut diungkapkan oleh surat kabar South China Morning Post, beberapa waktu yang lalu.Bahkan, bisa dibilang ini merupakan satu-satunya iklan dari Cathay Pacific yang tidak ditayangkan dimanapun. Kendati menuai kontroversi, namun pihak Cathay Pacific merasa tidak bersalah karena pihaknya mendukung kesetaraan gender.“Tidak peduli siapa Anda, ketika Anda datang untuk bekerja di Cathay Pacific … kami ingin Anda menjadi diri Anda sendiri dan merasa benar-benar nyaman dan menjadi bagian yang produktif dari tim dan itulah yang kami perjuangkan,” ujar CEO Cathay Pacific, Rupert Hogg.Baca Juga: Blunder Beruntun! Cathay Pacific ‘Diskon’ Hampir 90 Persen Tiket Penerbangan Portugal – Hong KongIklan dari Cathay ini memang sejatinya akan menimbulkan polemik yang menyeret berbagai pihak, salah satunya adalah para pelaku LGBT. Bagi negara yang masih memiliki pandangan ‘tertentu’ terhadap para pelaku LGBT, mungkin mereka akan berpikiran negatif tentang adanya iklan ini – berbanding terbalik dengan orang yang memiliki pemikiran terbuka, dimana mereka akan berpikir mengenai hak-hak dari pelaku LGBT ini.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedIklan Menjurus Seksis, AirAsia Menuai Kecaman dari Netizen01/10/2017In “Featured”Iklan ‘Diterjemahkan’ Netizen Berbau Promo Wisata Seks, AirAsia Minta Maaf27/03/2019In “Bandara”Catat Laba Spektakuler di 2018, Cathay Pacific Berencana Akuisisi Hong Kong Express11/03/2019In “Bandara”last_img read more

Utah Utes football: Sean Mannion wins battle of the quarterbacks

first_img Related Utah report card: Utes slightly better than average Utes come up short in roller-coaster Pac 12 opener Utah notebook: Late night becoming a regular thingcenter_img Utah football: Utes fall to Beavers, 51-48 SALT LAKE CITY — Saturday night’s Pac-12 opener between Utah and Oregon State turned out to be a tale of two quarterbacks.Both Utah’s Travis Wilson and Oregon State’s Sean Mannion played well enough to win, but in the end it was Mannion who walked off the Rice-Eccles Stadium smiling as the Beavers won 51-48 in overtime.Mannion, who had struggled in a 19-point loss to Utah as a freshman two years ago, shredded the Utah defense with 27 of 44 completions for 443 yards and five touchdowns. His final pass, a 6-yarder to Brandin Cooks, was the game-winner in overtime.The junior led the Beavers on an eight-play 79-yard drive to put OSU ahead 45-38 with 2:29 left before the Utes tied it with 21 seconds left. Then in overtime, he completed all three of his passes to give the Beavers the win.Meanwhile, Wilson completed 19 of 33 passes for 279 yards and two scores and also ran for 147 yards and three touchdowns.But three bad passes by the sophomore quarterback in the second half will haunt him as the interceptions ultimately proved to be the Utes’ undoing in the tough loss.Early in the second half, Wilson missed his receiver over the middle and OSU cornerback Sean Martin stepped in front and romped 27 yards to the end zone to put the Beavers up by 17.Then after Wilson had led the Utes to two straight touchdowns and had moved the Utes into OSU territory, he missed Dres Anderson and Steven Nelson intercepted the pass at the OSU 45. Then on the very next play, Mannion hit Brandin Cooks on a short pass that turned into a 55-yard touchdown.That made a 10-point deficit and the Utes still had hope and cut the lead to three early in the fourth quarter. Then after the Utes held the Beavers to a field goal and trailed by six, Wilson was intercepted again by Nelson as he outmaneuvered Anderson for the ball at the Utah 45-yard line.Wilson came back to lead the Utes to the tying touchdown, running around the right end and diving in the end zone for a nine-yard touchdown run. However in overtime, the Ute offense only picked up two yards on pair of James Poole runs and then Wilson’s pass to Anderson fell incomplete as the Utes had to settle for an Andy Phillips’ field goal.last_img read more

Powered by Firework As mark of respect, the Indian cricket team wore camouflaged caps in the third One-Day International against Australia to pay homage to the CRPF jawans who died in Pulwama terror attack two weeks back and the armed forces.Advertisement The idea to sport the olive-and-black caps bearing the BCCI’s logo came from former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who also happens to be an honorary lieutenant colonel with the Indian army.Advertisement “This is a special cap, it’s a tribute to the Armed forces. We’re all donating our match fees of this game to the National Defence Fund. I urge everyone in the country to do the same, donate and stick to the families of our armed forces,” Indian captain Virat Kohli said before the third in a five-match one-day series with Australia.The players donated their fees from the match to a national defence fund to help out the families of defence personnel who die on duty. A playing XI member gets Rs 8 lakh as match fees per game in ODIs and the reserve players get half that amount.The BCCI posted a clip on Twitter of commentators for the match also wearing the caps, signing off the tweet with #JaiHind.  Advertisementlast_img read more
