  • CELTIC 21st Anniversary Celebration at the Berlin 6G Conference 2024 -2nd to 4th July 2024
    by Audrey Bienvenu on 04/07/2024 at 12:21

    CELTIC 21st Anniversary Celebration at the Berlin 6G Conference 2024 And its a wrap up of the CELTIC-NEXT 21st Anniverssary co-located with the Berlin 6G Platform Event at BCC in Berlin between the 2nd and 4th of July 2024! On the morning of the 2nd of July 2024, CELTIC-NEXT celebrated its 21 years of existence on the scene of international cooperation fostering innovation in the ICT domain and its application verticals. During this day, opening keynotes were organised including a welcome keynote by the Chairman David Kennedy, followed by the Canadian VIP David Lisk on the Eureka Joint Presidentship. Then the Eureka Chair Dr Rudolf Haggenmueller did a keynote to celebrate Eureka in CELTIC, followed by the BMBF Ministry delegate Frau Dr Tina Kluwer. All these high-level speakers from BMBF, Eureka and the Industry shared the floor of the plenary auditorium and express themselves on CELTIC, its great achievements and their vision of its future. The session was followed by a Panel discussion on “Future Persuasive Networks – and how to build them” moderated by David Kennedy, CELTIC-NEXT Chairman. This panel discuss the visions shared by 5 panellists: Mr Engelbert Beyer (BMBF, Dept 51), Mikko A. Uusitalo (Coordinator 6G Flagship Hexa-X II), Johannes Springer (DTAG), Maria Guta (ESA), Hans Schotten (6G Platform Germany) The context of the discussion was the following: During the last 5 years, the Communications network, because of Corona and other factors, became recognised as a facilitator for changing not just how we work – but as a core enabler for a whole new structure of our lives.   The new era communications networks will be pervasive, providing everything to everyone at any time – for the traveller, it will be continuous connectivity, for the remote worker, it will be additional processing, for the home entertainment, it will high quality throughput at a low price and for the professional sectors, it will be a combination of processing, AI, low latency, low power and edge computing as and where they need it. The question is how will this be provided? Clearly the new network must be highly software based and infinitely customisable. It must be flexible and easily repurposed and or expandable. In fact, it must be intelligent and capable of learning how to supply what the users want before even they themselves know. And it must be cost/resources and power efficient. And fully automatised while secure and trustable because it remains explainable and controllable. After that a CELTIC-NEXT Awards Ceremony was organised, rewarding 3 projects in the fields of green networking, applications & services and outstanding innovation. We wrote a dedicated article on this occasion available here. CELTIC-NEXT Awards Ceremony at the CELTIC 21st Anniversary Celebration at Berlin 6G Conference On the 2nd of July in the afternoon session, the AI-NET Flagship held its Closure Event where were summarized the challenges and key achievements of the CELTIC ambitious European initiative, launched in mid-2021 with the support of the public authorities of Germany, France, Sweden, Finland, UK, and Poland, and with more than 90 partners from industry (both large and SME), RTOs and academia.

  • Bio-concrete and biogenic construction materials
    with cyanobacteria
    on 01/07/2024 at 15:52

    Fraunhofer researchers have developed a method of creating biogenic construction materials based on cyanobacteria. The bacteria multiply in a nutrient solution, driven by photosynthesis. When aggregates and fillers such as sand, basalt, or renewable raw materials are added, rock-like solid structures are produced. Unlike traditional concrete production, this process does not emit any carbon dioxide, which is harmful to the environment. Instead, the carbon dioxide is bound inside the material itself.

  • The urgency for a robust SASE posture to protect your cloud-native S/4HANA data
    by Elaine sherman on 11/07/2024 at 16:29

    The urgency for a robust SASE posture to protect your cloud-native S/4HANA data Elaine sherman Thu, 07/11/2024 - 16:29 In today's digital age, data security is more important than ever. Concerningly, 98% of organizations store sensitive data across multiple locations, such as on premises, public cloud, SaaS apps with local storage, private cloud and end points. Security challenges are increasing. With the rise of cloud-native ERP deployments, such as SAP S/4HANA, businesses are facing new challenges when it comes to protecting their sensitive information from cybercriminals. While S/4HANA offers many benefits in terms of scalability and flexibility but also presents new security risks that must be addressed. In today's digital age, data security is more important than ever. Concerningly, 98% of organizations store sensitive data across multiple locations, such as on premises, public cloud, SaaS apps with local storage, private cloud and end points. Security challenges are increasing. With the rise of cloud-native ERP deployments, such as SAP S/4HANA, businesses are facing new challenges when it comes to protecting their sensitive information from cybercriminals. While S/4HANA offers many benefits in terms of scalability and flexibility but also presents new security risks that must be addressed. Cloud-native technologies like S/4HANA, coupled with the rise of AI, present new fields for cyber criminals. These sophisticated attackers are constantly evolving their tactics to exploit weaknesses in cloud deployments, making it difficult for traditional security measures to keep up. In fact, recent market trends show that 80% of data breaches have occurred on cloud assets in the last 12 months, highlighting the increasing complex nature of the attack surface for enterprises that do not have an effective Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution in place. So, what exactly makes S/4HANA vulnerable to cyberattacks? There are several key vulnerabilities in deployment and configuration that put businesses at risk of a potential data breach. One common issue is misconfigured cloud settings, which can leave sensitive data exposed to unauthorized access. To put this in context, 54% of enterprises today highlight the complexity and fragmentation of cloud environments as a major security challenge for their operations teams. Additionally, weak authentication and inadequate encryption can make it easier for cybercriminals to steal valuable information. The business-critical information stored in ERP systems make them a valuable target to the cybercriminal. Finally, the complexity of cloud-native S/4HANA systems can make it difficult for IT teams to monitor and respond to security threats in real time. Fortunately, there is a solution to these vulnerabilities: a real-time SASE DLP operation, powered by a superior network with end-to-end SLAs. SASE, or Secure Access Service Edge, combines network security and secure access technologies to provide a comprehensive solution for protecting cloud assets. By implementing a SASE DLP solution, businesses can monitor and control data access in real time, detect and respond to security threats quickly, and ensure compliance with data protection regulations. To illustrate the importance of a SASE DLP solution, let's consider three examples of S/4HANA vulnerabilities that could lead to a data breach without proper protection: 1. Insecure APIs S/4HANA relies on APIs to communicate with other systems and applications, making them a prime target for cyberattacks. Without safe authentication and encryption, APIs can be exploited by cybercriminals to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data.

    by Elaine sherman on 03/07/2024 at 20:06

    Blue Field Implementation with Selective Data Transition for SAP S/4HANA Elaine sherman Wed, 07/03/2024 - 20:06 For many organizations, migrating to the SAP S/4HANA platform is a critical step in digital transformation journey. The SAP S/4HANA platform provides businesses with real-time data and insights, improved productivity and streamlined processes. However, this migration can be a complex process that requires careful planning and execution. For many organizations, migrating to the SAP S/4HANA platform is a critical step in digital transformation journey. The SAP S/4HANA platform provides businesses with real-time data and insights, improved productivity and streamlined processes. However, this migration can be a complex process that requires careful planning and execution. One approach is the Blue Field Implementation with Selective Data Transition approach, which enables organizations to adopt the SAP S/4HANA platform while minimizing business disruption and data loss. In this blog, I explore the Blue Field Implementation with Selective Data Transition approach in detail, including the benefits and challenges of this approach, best practices and the role of a trusted partner. What is it? The Blue Field Implementation with Selective Data Transition approach is a migration strategy that enables organizations to adopt the SAP S/4HANA platform while minimizing business disruption and data loss. It involves creating a new SAP S/4HANA system that is configured and customized based on the preserved existing SAP system, with only critical data and processes migrated to the new system. This approach provides several benefits, including reduced business disruption, faster implementation, improved data quality and better performance. Organizations are also able to adopt new features and functionality of the SAP S/4HANA platform gradually. Benefits Reduced business disruption Organizations can continue their operations even during the migration process. Since the existing system is preserved, there is no downtime, and employees can continue to use the system as usual. The new system is tested and validated before the migration, ensuring a seamless transition. Faster implementation Since only critical data and processes are migrated to the new system, the migration process is faster and more efficient. This approach also enables organizations to adopt new features and functionality of the SAP S/4HANA platform gradually. Improved data quality Organizations can clean up and improve the quality of their data before migration. This approach ensures that the data in the new system is accurate and up to date, enabling organizations to make informed decisions based on real-time data. Better performance By migrating to the SAP S/4HANA platform using this approach, organizations can take advantage of the platform's improved performance and gain real-time data insights to drive business growth. Challenges While there are benefits associated with this approach, there are also challenges that organizations need to consider, including: Data compatibility The new system must be compatible with the existing system, and data must be transferred seamlessly. Organizations need to ensure that the data is correctly mapped and validated before the migration. Customization Customizations in the existing system must be replicated in the new system. This process can be challenging and time-consuming, requiring a team of experts with deep knowledge of SAP systems and customization. Employee training Employees need to be trained on how to use the new system. This process can be labor intensive and requires resources to ensure that employees are proficient in using the new system. Best practices To execute a successful Blue Field Implementation with Selective Data Transition, organizations are advised to follow these best practices: Defining clear objectives Organizations should define clear objectives for the migration process, including timelines, budget and expected outcomes. Clear objectives ensure that everyone involved in the process is aligned and that the migration is executed efficiently. Creating a detailed migration plan A detailed migration plan is critical to the success of the migration process. The plan should include a detailed analysis of the existing system, a gap analysis and a clear roadmap for the migration process. The migration plan should also identify critical data and processes to be migrated to the new system. Engaging key stakeholders Key stakeholders, including business leaders and end users, should be engaged throughout the migration process. This approach ensures that the new system meets the needs of the business and its users and that they are involved in the decision-making process. Validating and testing The new system should be tested and validated thoroughly before the migration. This process should include user acceptance testing (UAT) to ensure that the new system meets the needs of end users. Training end users End users should be sufficiently trained on the new system to ensure that they can use it effectively. The training should be customized to meet the needs of different user groups, and it should be delivered through a variety of channels, including classroom training, e-learning and user manuals. Selective data transition Selective data transition is a key component of the Blue Field Implementation approach. It involves transferring only relevant data to the new system, rather than migrating all data. This approach minimizes the risk of data loss, reduces migration time and cost and streamlines the new system. To implement selective data transition, organizations must first identify which data is essential to migrate and which data can be archived. This process is critical as it ensures that the new system is not cluttered with irrelevant data and that only the necessary data is transferred. Selective data transition examples Selective data transition involves migrating only the most critical data and processes from the old system to the new system. Examples of selective data transition include: Financial data Organizations can migrate only their most critical financial data, such as balance sheets, income statements and cash flow statements. By selecting only the most critical data, organizations can reduce the time and effort required for migration. Customer data Customer data is critical for any organization and migrating this data to the new SAP S/4HANA will minimize any potential data loss that may come with confidential business insights about the customer. Transactional data An organization may have years of transactional data. In this case, it may not be necessary to migrate all of it, as some may be outdated and no longer relevant. The organization can use a data archiving solution to archive the old data and only migrate the relevant data. Legacy data For preservation of some legacy data, organizations can use a data migration tool that allows for selective data transfer. This tool allows the organization to identify the relevant data to be migrated and transfer only that data to the new system. Role of a trusted partner Migrating to the SAP S/4HANA platform is a complex process that requires a team of experts with deep knowledge of SAP systems and processes. Engaging a trusted partner can help organizations execute a successful Blue Field Implementation with Selective Data Transition. A trusted partner can provide the following: Deep expertise to ensure that the migration process is executed efficiently Customized solutions to meet the specific needs of the organization Best practices to leverage their experience in executing similar migration projects Minimized risk to identify potential challenges and providing mitigation strategies Conclusion The SAP S/4HANA platform provides organizations with real-time data and insights, improved productivity and streamlined processes, making it a critical step in a business's digital transformation journey. The Blue Field Implementation with Selective Data Transition approach is a practical and efficient approach to migrating to the SAP S/4HANA platform. By carefully selecting and transferring only relevant data to the new system, organizations should know that they can reap numerous benefits, from streamlined migration process to reduced risk of data loss. Of course, there are some foreseen challenges in making this leap, but making note of best practices and engaging a trusted partner can certainly help organizations execute a successful migration.

How to enable JavaScript Press Release12 July 2024Siemens MobilityMunich Innovative obstacle detection system is being tested for the first time on the Berlin S-Bahn  Berlin as a pioneer: World’s first installation of an obstacle detection system on an S-Bahn in daily operation Installation and practical testing of an innovative obstacle detection system in the latest 484 series S-Bahn train conducted by Siemens Mobility with S-Bahn Berlin and the Digital Rail Germany (DSD) initiative Goal: Develop assistance system for accident prevention and driverless operation at low speeds Automated operation is a key function for expanding rail capacity and strengthening the performance of railways. Working together with S-Bahn Berlin, Siemens Mobility has installed and will be testing an obstacle detection system – a key technology component for enabling fully automated driving – for the first time during regular daily operation.   Berlin as a pioneer: World’s first installation of an obstacle detection system on an S-Bahn in daily operation Installation and practical testing of an innovative obstacle detection system in the latest 484 series S-Bahn train conducted by Siemens Mobility with S-Bahn Berlin and the Digital Rail Germany (DSD) initiative Goal: Develop assistance system for accident prevention and driverless operation at low speeds Automated operation is a key function for expanding rail capacity and strengthening the performance of railways. Working together with S-Bahn Berlin, Siemens Mobility has installed and will be testing an obstacle detection system – a key technology component for enabling fully automated driving – for the first time during regular daily operation.   Innovative obstacle detection system is being tested for the first time on the Berlin S-Bahn The project’s goal is to thoroughly evaluate the performance of the new obstacle detection system during daily operation in various weather and route conditions. The test data will be used to further refine the system and optimize the positioning of the detection sensors. The system will record background data for the duration of the project, and neither the train drivers nor the passengers will notice its operation. In the future, the obstacle detection system can help drivers avoid accidents, which will stabilize daily S-Bahn operations and increase punctuality. The system promises to be a key technology for enabling digitalized, fully automated rail operations in the future.  Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility: “Intelligent trains that relieve their drivers of routine tasks and support them in their work are the future of digitalized rail transport. These trains will be able to automatically set themselves up and shut down, ensure energy-optimized operation, react quickly and safely to obstacles on the track, and shunt fully automatically on the depot grounds. We look forward to working with our partners to qualify our innovative obstacle detection technology for practical application in Germany’s largest S-Bahn network.” Peter Buchner, CEO S-Bahn Berlin GmbH: “For 100 years, the Berlin S-Bahn has stood for innovation and progress. We are partnering with industry to test new technologies that support environmentally friendly rail transportation. Automatic obstacle detection will be an indispensable component for automated driving in the future. It is already capable of supporting our drivers and contributing to better operational quality.” Martin Fuchs, CEO Verkehrsverbund Berlin Brandenburg (VBB): “The states of Berlin and Brandenburg and the Berlin-Brandenburg public transport authority (VBB) support innovation and the groundwork needed to make S-Bahn operations more efficient and effective. This automatic obstacle detection project will generate valuable findings and enable us to further develop the S-Bahn system. Exactly 100 years after the S-Bahn was first electrified, we are preparing yet another technological leap that will make Berlin’s S-Bahn system fit for the future.” Testing of the technology will be carried out in a partnership between Siemens Mobility GmbH (installation supervision, sensors, hardware, software and digital map), S-Bahn Berlin GmbH (trains, installation, operation), and Digitale Schiene Deutschland/DB InfraGo (digital mapping, open data platform). Results of the tests will be evaluated together with the VBB.On the technical side, the sensors used in the project will include high-performance LiDARs for close- and long-range object detection and an infrared camera. The algorithms for evaluating the sensor data have been specially developed for the rail sector in the "Berlin Digital Rail Operations - BerDiBa" research project by Siemens in Berlin-Adlershof and have already been optimised several times. The system continually compares the position of a train with the location of detected objects using a digital map. Decisions whether to warn the driver or brake the train are made on the basis of these ongoing calculations. A newly developed map from DB InfraGo, which depicts reality with centimeter-accurate precision in 3D, is being used for this purpose for the first time. As part of the Digital Rail Germany initiative, Siemens, a technology leader in the field of rail automation, and Deutsche Bahn are pursuing a new approach to accelerate the introduction of this detection technology in the rail sector and promote innovation in Germany. In the project, selected data showing obstacles on the track will be made available centrally in anonymized form and can be used for research purposes, such as training AI models or for system validation. Following a one-year test phase through all seasons, the assistance system should be ready for use as an emergency braking assistance system that operates in the background to support the driver. On the basis of the data generated during this phase, it will be possible to use the system together with other automation components for automated driving at low speeds, such as during depot shunting or when deploying or shutting down a train. The field test aims to: Gain knowledge about boundary conditions for obstacle detection with the help of joint data evaluation, Record and evaluate the performance of the sensor technology under special operating conditions such as rain, fog, snow, and dirt, Minimize risks related to planning projects (technology, calculations, deadlines), and Optimize system settings to avoid false alarms, essential for driverless operation. Innovative obstacle detection system is being tested for the first time on the Berlin S-Bahn The cooperation partners Siemens Mobility, Deutsche Bahn AG (S-Bahn Berlin GmbH, DB InfraGo, DB Systemtechnik) and the states of Berlin and Brandenburg with the Berlin/Brandenburg Transport Association will jointly analyse the findings and data from the project in the research project. Installation of a set of prototype sensors for detecting obstacles has already been completed in an S-Bahn Berlin train. As part of the field test, up to ten trains in the Berlin S-Bahn fleet will be equipped with the sensors. Once the field test has been completed, it is planned to remove the sensors.For this press release PDF DownloadFollow us on X SiemensMobilitySiemens Mobility is a separately managed company of Siemens AG.

For decades, together with its innovative customers, Siemens has been developing technological solutions to meet these challenges.   Monte Rosa Hut The Monte Rosa Hut, located 2,883 meters above sea level, is one of the most iconic mountain huts in Switzerland. The high-tech hut has been equipped with Siemens building technology since its reopening in 2010. In 2021, 8.6 tons of lead batteries were replaced by 2.7 tons of lithium batteries. Continuous online evaluation of energy flows indicated the need for a new solution as the existing lead batteries would soon reach the end of their lifespan.  The hut operates mainly autonomously and is largely self-sufficient in its energy needs. With the building management system Desigo CC, as the comprehensive on-site solution to manage all the systems, such as HVAC, Shading, Lighting, Power, Fire Safety, and Security, the operator can quickly review the key equipment values, check key room KPIs, and troubleshoot any potential problems.  In 2024, the open and flexible IoT platform “Building X” from Siemens was deployed. Building X is the scalable digital building platform to digitalize, manage, and optimize building operations, allowing for an enhanced user experience, increased performance, and improved sustainability.  Zermatt Bergbahnen AG Zermatt Bergbahnen AG is Switzerland’s largest cable car company. The cable car station “Matterhorn glacier paradise” is Europe’s highest cable car station at 3,883 m above sea level. It offers year-round snow experiences and stunning views of 38 peaks over 4,000 m. The Matterhorn summer paradise offers bike trails, adventurous kickbike and dirt scooter descents, and 400 km hiking trails. In the winter, the company offers, together with Cervinia/Valtournenche, 54 lifts and a total of 360 km of slopes. Infrastructure in mountainous and challenging terrain demands high standards due to factors such as altitude, low oxygen levels, and rapidly changing weather. Siemens and Zermatt Bergbahnen share a long-standing and successful partnership in areas such as low-voltage power supply and state-of-the-art control solutions, which has been expanded with the completion of the Matterhorn Alpine Crossing and the connection from Matterhorn Glacier Paradise to Testa Grigia in Italy. Siemens solutions provide complete transparency and traceability of the system, thereby ensuring a seamless energy management overview of the entire infrastructure. This system ensures that all the energy values can be managed directly on the control units and displayed graphically on a state-of-the-art display/HMI or SCADA. Data from different subsystems provided by a wide range of manufacturers can be easily integrated into the overall Siemens system via standardized interfaces.  Gornergrat Railway and Matterhorn Gotthard Railway The Gornergrat Railway (GGB) and Matterhorn Gotthard Railway (MGB) are part of the BVZ Group, which includes 10 subsidiaries. The BVZ Group provides public transport and tourism services in the cantons of Valais, Uri, and Grisons. The GGB adopted the first cloud-based operational model in 2017, which was facilitated by Siemens Mobility. It ensures seamless and reliable operation. This innovative approach eliminates the need for on-site server infrastructure and allows for the remote management of critical systems. The integrated control and information system, known as “Iltis”, enhances operational efficiency and safety. This system enables remote control of signaling, monitoring of operations, and management of passenger information systems. Another world premiere in 2023: The first mobile depot control system in the cloud, the Controlguide® TrackOps Depot, for the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn. Controlguide® TrackOps Depot is an innovative depot control solution, enabling the local management of shunting activities and streamlining depot operations. Utilizing cloud-based technologies, Siemens provided flexible and scalable depot control solutions to ensure the efficient management of railway operations. Tablet-based control interfaces were introduced for depot operations, thereby enabling the simplified and efficient management of shunting activities directly from the field. Follow us on X @siemens_pressSiemens AG (Berlin and Munich) is a leading technology company focused on industry, infrastructure, transport, and healthcare.

Photo source „BVG/Oliver Lang“  /  Siemens Mobility equips Berlin metro with CBTC technology to enable semi-automated operation for the first time Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility, said: “The investment in our leading CBTC technology for metros is really good news for rail passengers in Berlin. It will provide the technical conditions for semi-automated trains to run on the lines every 100 seconds. This translates into 30% more passenger capacity for Berliners and is the best answer for increasing climate protection and meeting the growing need for mobility. Our tried and tested CBTC systems for metros are already being used in many major cities around the world, including Singapore, Paris, and New York.” Trainguard MT train control system for Berlin metro lines U5 and U8The BVG lines U5 and U8 will be equipped with Trainguard MT over a total route length of 40 kilometers, which includes all 26 stations on the U5 line and 24 stations on the U8 line. Siemens Mobility will completely replace the existing signaling system with its digital CBTC technology to enable a more efficient and centralized monitoring of operations and a higher level of automation and connectivity. When the system is installed, the semi-automated operation will allow trains to communication continuously with the trackside, run automatically at specified safety intervals, perform emergency braking, and accelerate and brake autonomously. The train driver can then concentrate on boarding and alighting passengers, monitor the route visually, and intervene in an emergency. By relying on real-time data on train positions and speeds, more trains can run at shorter headways along the line.   Photo source „BVG/Oliver Lang“  /  Siemens Mobility equips Berlin metro with CBTC technology to enable semi-automated operation for the first timeDigitalization ensures greater efficiency on the rail linesSiemens Mobility’s Rail Infrastructure Business Unit, the global market leader, offers a wide range of intelligent mobility solutions and a diverse product portfolio for various rail markets, including mass transit, mainline, and freight.
