MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Feb. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — APITech™ (API Technologies Corp.), a leading provider of high-performance RF and Electromagnetic solutions for Protection, Power, and Analog Processing, announced the release of a family of high-reliability cavity filters for mitigation of 5G C-band interference in critical avionics systems.

APITech Cavity Filter for Mitigation of 5G C-band Interference

On January 25th, APITech released an article titled “How Does 5G Affect Airline Industries?”  The paper (https://blog.apitech.com/blog/5g-aviation) detailed concerns related to the recent launch of the faster high-band 5G cellphone service in the United States and its potential impact on aircraft safety. The feedback from this article inspired filter and other novel solutions designed to mitigate wireless interference currently plaguing global aviation.

APITech’s Chief Technology Officer, Ian Dunn, recently spoke on this concern. “This is the first of many interference issues associated with higher frequency, broadband communications as wireless becomes the backbone of our ongoing digital transformation. APITech’s core mission and targeted investments in RF protection address the broader issue of protecting critical electronics infrastructure from an increasingly dense, confused and overlapping electromagnetic spectrum”.

As an example, APITech’s high-reliability BOM10648 cavity filter is designed to solve the emerging 5G C-band interference issue with radar altimeters and other critical avionics systems operating in the globally allocated 4.2-4.4 GHz aeronautical band. The passband of 4.2-4.4 GHz has less than 1 dB insertion loss and greater than 50 dB of signal rejection outside the aeronautical bandwidth with propagation delays of less than 2ns.  This filter housing is 4 inches long and 1 inch square with connector and mounting options available to satisfy any installation requirement

APITech’s high-performance RF cavity filter solutions allow 5G C-band to take flight.

The Revenue of GWM in 2021 Exceeding CNY 136.3 Billion

The continuous expansion of the globalized market layout is an important reason for the revenue growth of GWM. In January 2022, GWM officially completed the transfer of the ownership of the Iracemapolis factory in Brazil, starting the intelligent and digital transformation and upgrading of the factory. It forms a strategic layout with Brazil as the fulcrum to cover the entire South American market. Previously, GWM had opened a subsidiary in Munich of Germany and set up a European headquarters to accelerate its strategy implementation in Europe. With the active development in the markets of South Asia, South America, Europe and North Africa, GWM has entered a new stage of globalization.

The excellent performance of GWM in revenue has further boosted the brand value. Recently, GWM’s HAVAL brand was included in the list of “Brand Finance Global 500 2022” for the first time, released by Brand Finance, an international authoritative brand value assessment agency. This shows that the brand value of Chinese automobiles has won international recognition.

Based on such good performance on the yearly revenue, GWM will continue to concentrate on electrification and intelligentizion in 2022. The company plans to launch and deliver WEY Coffee 01, ORA GOODCAT, HAVAL H6 PHEV and models of the TANK Brand in overseas markets to promote the development of globalized products and accelerate the implementation of the 2025 strategic goals.

Burundi’s Vicious Crackdown Never Ended

Published by
TDPel Media

In June 2020, when Évariste Ndayishimiye was sworn in as Burundi’s president after the unexpected death of his brutal, autocratic predecessor, Pierre Nkurunziza, he pledged to “uphold unity among Burundians” and deliver “peace and justice for all. ” Yet for the last year and a half, his government has largely carried on as Nkurunziza’s did.

Lumicash/Ecocash : Les super agents et agents aux abois

Après la hausse des frais de transaction pour les clients et la baisse des commissions pour les intermédiaires, ces derniers disent avoir suspendu les activités. Ils menacent de retirer tout leur argent électronique et quitter pour de bon les services Lumicash et Ecocash.

Dans une note qui a circulé depuis la semaine dernière, certains super agents et agents ont appelé leurs collègues à suspendre les activités et à se diriger vers les agences de Lumitel et Econet pour retirer leurs montants se trouvant sur leurs comptes Lumicash et Ecocash.

Même appel aux usagers de ces services : « Nous demandons à la population à se rendre aux bureaux de Lumicash et Ecocash pour retirer leur argent depuis jeudi le 3 février ».
Dans une correspondance à sa clientèle de ce 3 février, la direction de Lumicash a fait comprendre que cette note émanant des super agents et agents était une rumeur : « Lumicash affirme que cette rumeur ne devrait pas inquiéter nos clients, car nos services resteront fonctionnels ».

A 10 heures, ce 7 février, un petit nombre d’agents Lumicash/Ecocash étaient au centre-ville de Bujumbura. Les places où ils se regroupaient en attente des clients étaient presque vides.

Au centre commercial de Lumitel, une dizaine d’agents retiraient l’argent sur le guichet Lumicash. Ils se disent remontés suite à la non-exécution de la décision de la BRB suspendant les nouveaux tarifs sur les transactions et les commissions.
« Je viens de retirer mon argent électronique en cash. Je vais quitter la vente des services Lumicash/Ecocash pour investir dans un autre business », confie un agent rencontré au centre commercial de Lumitel au centre-ville.

Pour lui, avec la baisse des commissions sur les transactions, la perte est énorme : « Avec les anciens tarifs, je pouvais gagner plus de 100.000 BIF par mois, mais avec ces nouveaux tarifs, je peux gagner à peine 50.000 BIF ».
Un autre agent regrette du deux poids deux mesures entre la Banque centrale et les compagnies de téléphonie mobile : « C’est incompréhensible que la BRB prenne une décision de suspendre les nouveaux tarifs, et que les compagnies télécoms refusent de l’exécuter ». Et de demander à la BRB de veiller au respect de sa mesure prise le 19 janvier.

« Il faut survivre avant tout »

Malgré la suspension des activités, quelques agents portant des gilets des services Lumicash/Ecocash se voient dans différents endroits au centre-ville. Certains disent en train d’assurer le service minimum.

« Je ne fais que vendre les unités de recharge. En ce qui est de Lumicash et Ecocash, j’attends que les deux sociétés de téléphonie mobile sursoient à la mesure de revoir en baisse les commissions », explique un agent. Il était en train de servir ses clients. Il demande au gouvernement d’intervenir pour la régulation de ces services.

Pour un autre agent, il faut survivre avant tout. Elle fait comprendre que la vente de la monnaie électronique est sa seule source de revenu : « Comment vais-je payer le loyer, subvenir à d’autres besoins si je suspends les activités ? ». Elle aussi se dit indignée contre la baisse des commissions, mais préfère continuer de travailler malgré les pertes.

Pour rappel, les sociétés de téléphonie mobile Econet et Lumitel ont généralement revu en hausse les frais de transfert et de retrait pour leurs services Ecocash/Lumicash depuis le mois dernier. Elles ont ensuite revu à la baisse les commissions pour les agents jusqu’à plus de 30 %.

Néanmoins, dans une lettre de ce 19 janvier, la Banque de la République du Burundi (BRB) a instruit les deux sociétés de suspendre les nouveaux tarifs et maintenir les anciens tarifs, une mesure qui n’a pas jusqu’ici entré en vigueur.
