OnePlus Mobiles Partners with Oxxy for a Healthier India

Focusing on awareness and testing camps against sexually transmitted diseases

OnePlus, a fast growing global technology startup, has partnered with Oxxy, India’s largest healthcare network to bring forth to India’s youth to educate on STD (sexually transmitted diseases) and invites youth for check-ups at camps which will be held in different parts of the Country under this partnership.

Oxxy has been under the process to providing Indians with affordable and transparent healthcare and has put in a lot of effort and work with its Swastha Bharat initiative. Now it is educating the youth about STDs and in the coming months a number of initiatives have been planned through the partnership with OnePlus. Existing OnePlus users wishing to avail the free medical tests shall also be provided with a chance to get themselves tested at these medical camps. One Plus has always been into demand because of its “Invites”, now the partnership offers free Invites to all who care and support in the awareness campaign for HIV/ AIDS.

Speaking on Oxxy’s efforts towards providing better healthcare opportunities, Pankaj Gupta, Founder Oxxy said, “We at OXXY have always been working towards the aim of a healthier nation. Awareness and education on STD’s is still lacking in the country. We are glad that companies like One Plus who are so popular amongst the youth is an integral part of the campaign to educate the masses. Oxxy is working as a monitoring unit for controlling health care prices throughout the country”.

India has one of the highest numbers of people infected with STDs and yet people are shy of getting them tested for fear of stigma where some of them cannot afford it. This is a first-of-it’s-kind of partnership, pushing the society to come out of its shell and talk about STDs, which is becoming a rampant problem and a silent killer of sorts. Most people are still uncomfortable discussing STDs, but with such alliances to attract the youth through technology and healthcare with incentives that interest them, the situation will surely look up for the betterment of the society.

“OnePlus sincerely believes that the only way to a healthy life is to be aware of possibilities of contracting the disease and therefore we are facilitating this opportunity free of cost to the youth. We are happy to partner with Oxxy and do our bit to ensure we create a healthier society.”adds Mr Karan Sarin, Head of Marketing – India, OnePlus on this novel initiative.

GODOFWORLD chain of Hospitals has also partnered in the initiative for bringing awareness to masses about STDs. Sheetal Kapoor, Founder OXXY added “We are glad to extend our support to the initiative with our 40 hospitals spread across the country and will be soon screening for STD’s free of cost for the youth and masses.

Broadcom Announces New Switch Chipsets to Drive 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet into the Enterprise

Higher Port Speeds Deliver Faster Data Rates Offered by 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi

Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications announced new enterprise Ethernet switches designed to deliver the faster data rates offered by 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi. Built on Broadcom’s StrataXGS® architecture, the BCM56060 and BCM56160 enable OEMs to design cost-optimized network switches that enable high speed, robust Internet access across both traditional and new all-wireless enterprise networks. For more news, visit Broadcom’s Newsroom.

The increased wireless speeds delivered by 802.11ac Wave 2 are exceeding the performance of today’s broadly deployed Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), driving enterprises to upgrade network edge switches. The most cost-effective solution is to run 2.5G Ethernet to the access point, thereby unlocking faster wireless speeds and enabling higher bandwidth without needing to re-cable an entire network. Broadcom’s new switches address the upgrade needs for both traditional and all-wireless enterprises, and are designed to work with Broadcom’s BCM84868 2.5 Gbps Ethernet PHY.

The new BCM56160 is the industry’s most integrated Ethernet switch chipset for traditional wired enterprises where desktop terminals, voice-over-IP phones and wireless access points are all connected. The BCM56160 enterprise switch adds 2.5 GbE access point connections to the popular 24 and 48 port Gigabit Ethernet form factors. To accommodate higher Wi-Fi traffic, the device also integrates more high speed 10 Gigabit interfaces for fiber uplinks and delivers double the stacking bandwidth of previous generation devices.

For the all-wireless office built primarily on Wi-Fi access points with few wired terminals, Broadcom’s BCM56060 is the first switch product family optimized for 802.11ac Wave 2 enterprise environments. The BCM56060 enables a smaller form factor with low power consumption, providing multi-mode 1 GbE/2.5 GbE Ethernet interfaces with 10 Gigabit uplinks. Because it is designed to connect primarily to access points instead of wired PCs and phones, it cuts cost by eliminating the legacy 1 GbE Ethernet links.

“There’s a strong 2.5G Ethernet ramp expected in the coming 5 years,” said Alan Weckel, VP Ethernet Switch Analyst at Dell Oro. “We expect 5 million 2.5G ports to be deployed next year and up to 25 million by 2019, driven by the transition to 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi.”

“Broadcom continues to partner with worldwide equipment manufacturers to deliver the most comprehensive portfolio for enterprise networking,” said Nick Kucharewski, Broadcom Vice President, Network Switch Marketing. “Our new switch products enable a converged wired/wireless enterprise and deliver highly optimized 2.5 GbE solutions for high density wireless deployments.”

“The new Broadcom 2.5 GbE product lines are well aligned with near-term customer demand for faster converged wireless access points and switches, and help us to serve our customers as they upgrade their equipment to the latest Wi-Fi standard,” said Eric Broockman, CTO and EVP Engineering at Extreme Networks.
