ScienceLogic Strengthens Network Readiness, Resilience With Restorepoint Acquisition

ScienceLogic | October 01, 2021

ScienceLogic, a leader in AIOps and hybrid-cloud IT management, has acquired Restorepoint, a pioneer in network configuration and change management. The move expands ScienceLogic’s portfolio into the Network Operations (NetOps) and Security Operations (SecOps) domains.IT operations management has become a mission-critical IT leadership objective, and readiness and resilience are central to ScienceLogic’s delivery of positive digital experiences and successes. End-to-end visibility, streamlined troubleshooting of potential disruptions and a secure, hybrid cloud environment all require ScienceLogic to continually expand its AIOps capabilities. This is especially true in network configuration and change management, and in governance, risk and compliance.

With deep integrations across more than 100 network and security vendors, Restorepoint automates network and security device configuration backup, recovery, compliance analysis and change management. By providing a greater depth of data and by closely monitoring changes to configurations, Restorepoint helps proactively safeguard customer networks against disruption—malicious or otherwise.

“Together with ScienceLogic, we look forward to continuing to grow and build on the standards of excellence we have set in saving customers the costs of disruption and lowering their exposure to often-unforeseen risks,” said Restorepoint CEO and Founder Riccardo Valente. “Hybrid-cloud services and digital experiences are the lifeblood of any enterprise, and if the network doesn’t work, nothing works.”

In addition to sharpening visibility across hybrid IT estates, Restorepoint’s change management capabilities offer customers greater confidence in the security of their networks. The growing incidence of cybercrime underscores the dangers of threat actors remaining undetected within networks for any length of time. With network and security device configuration backups and automated change analysis in real-time, customers can simultaneously thwart advanced persistent threats, close the threat detection and remediation gap, and preserve network data.


“Over 15 years, ScienceLogic has developed a breadth of data collection that is unmatched in our industry, as well as the most comprehensive data collection mechanism across the entire IT estate,With Restorepoint, ScienceLogic will integrate configuration and change data into our data-collection mechanisms, providing a holistic picture of our clients’ IT environments in real-time, allowing us to intelligently automate root cause analysis and deliver rapid remediation.”

-Dave Link, ScienceLogic CEO.

KYOCERA Develops Transmissive Metasurface Technology That Redirects Wireless Signals for Improved 5G and 6G Performance

KYOCERA | April 19, 2022

Kyocera Corporation has developed a Transmissive Metasurface technology that can redirect wireless network signals in a specific direction to improve the coverage area and performance of 5G and eventually 6G networks. The Transmissive Metasurface will help deliver high-frequency millimeter-wave 5G and 6G to places where communication is impossible due to obstacles, expanding service areas beyond the capability of conventional Reflective Metasurface technologies used today. Development Background The 28 GHz band used in 5G networks, and the higher frequency band being studied for 6G, have a high degree of rectilinear propagation. Signals often cannot reach locations where a direct line of sight to the base station is obstructed. Reflective Metasurface technology offers a very limited ability to change the direction of a signal to reach these areas. To solve this issue and expand performance, Kyocera developed a new Transmissive Metasurface technology that can redirect radio waves at smaller angles to extend targeted network coverage. Features: Transmissive Metasurface Technology 1) Kyocera expands the direction in which radio signals can be redirected Radio waves striking a conventional Reflective Metasurface device can be redirected at a wide angle, but not at narrow angles beyond the metasurface. Kyocera’s new Transmissive Metasurface technology is able to bend at narrow angles in order to avoid obstacles that may block transmission, expanding 5G and eventually 6G coverage even further. For example, a large building may block 5G network transmission, but Kyocera’s Transmissive Metasurface device can redirect the signal downward to reach smaller buildings behind and below for better coverage. 2) Proprietary Flexible Size Development The area in which a Transmissive Metasurface can deliver signals is proportional to the size of the metasurface itself. Conventional technologies have been unable to develop a Transmissive Metasurface of sufficient size for practical use, but Kyocera can design any size using its proprietary technology, allowing greater flexibility. This makes it possible to install metasurfaces in more places, such as a home patio or apartment balcony. 5G Test Results Kyocera tested its new Transmissive Metasurface using a 28 GHz band local 5G environment at its Kagoshima Kokubu Plant (Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan). Terminals were installed at two locations: Location A (reception power: -97 dBm), where signal strength is weak due to walls obstructing line-of-sight to the base station; and Location B (reception power: -67 dBm), where signal strength is high due to an unobstructed line-of-sight to the base station through a window. When a Transmissive Metasurface was installed outside the window at Location A, signal strength was -68 dBm, about the same as at Location B with its clear line-of-sight. Kyocera is developing a Transparent Transmissive Metasurface that is more landscape-friendly and incorporates technological improvements to focus radio waves in specific locations and improve signal strength further. Additionally, the Company is developing a Reconfigurable Intelligent Surface (RIS)* that can create a smart signal environment to change the signal direction adaptively depending on the devices in use. About KYOCERA Kyocera Corporation the parent and global headquarters of the Kyocera Group, was founded in 1959 as a producer of fine ceramics (also known as “advanced ceramics”). By combining these engineered materials with metals and integrating them with other technologies, Kyocera has become a leading supplier of industrial and automotive components, semiconductor packages, electronic devices, smart energy systems, printers, copiers, and mobile phones. During the year ended March 31, 2021, the company’s consolidated sales revenue totaled 1.5 trillion yen (approx. US$13.8 billion). Kyocera is ranked #603 on Forbes magazine’s 2021 “Global 2000” list of the world’s largest publicly traded companies, and has appeared on The Wall Street Journal’s list of “The World’s 100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies.”
