New Bundesliga Match Facts powered by AWS

Win Probability: The new Win Probability Match Fact emphasizes notable swings in the chances of a team winning their respective match throughout the 90 minutes of game play. This new fact is based on action from the game, including the difference in goals, the time remaining, and other relevant team statistics. It uses several existing Bundesliga Match Facts, such as Expected Goals, Skill, and Set Piece Threat from the live match, as well as statistics from previous games to alert fans to a significant change in a potential match outcome. Win Probability quantifies this shift in an easy-to-understand graphic for viewers.

Pressure Handling: The new Pressure Handling Match Fact highlights players who are performing exceptionally well when under pressure by the opposing team. The central metric is the escape rate, which highlights how often a player breaks out from these high-pressure situations while keeping possession of the ball for his own team. The high-pressure situations will be evaluated by performance metrics like passes completed under pressure.

These new stats bring the total of Bundesliga Match Facts powered by AWS to 12, delivering a comprehensive set of real-time advanced analysis to millions of Bundesliga fans around the world. Bundesliga Match Facts provide enhanced engagement by helping audiences better understand the performance and game strategy of teams and offering deeper insights into the performances of their favorite players.

Bundesliga Match Facts are delivered as on-screen graphics during broadcasts and in the official Bundesliga app to help fans, coaches, players, and commentators better understand and analyze action on the pitch and game outcomes.

“Hard-fought competition, pivotal plays, nonstop energy—it all happens on Bundesliga pitches, and we offer viewers deeper insights into what’s happening on the pitch with Bundesliga Match Facts powered by AWS,” said Peer Naubert, chief marketing officer for Bundesliga International. “A total of 95% of international Bundesliga fans participating in an online survey told us that these advanced statistics add value to their Bundesliga experience, and so we continue to create new Match Facts, driving the viewing experience for the millions of worldwide fans to new heights. Real-time insights help deepen fans’ knowledge of what’s happening and builds their love for the sport and its players.

Japan’s National Institute of Informatics Deepens Partnership with Juniper Networks to Power its 400G SINET6 Academic Information Network

Japan’s National Institute of Informatics Deepens Partnership with Juniper Networks to Power its 400G SINET6 Academic Information Network

Juniper’s experience-first solutions lay the foundation for a secure, high-performance 400G network that connects 70 sites across Japan

TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today announced that they have been selected by the National Institute of Informatics (NII), the inter-university research institute in-charge of Japan’s nationwide academic information infrastructure, to upgrade its SINET6 academic information network to meet the diverse and complex needs of research and education institutions across the country and globally. With a secure, experience-first network powered by Juniper, SINET6 has achieved 400G connectivity, support for additional points of presence (POPs), added redundancy and enhanced security in its domestic network.

Since its inception in 1992, the Science Information Network (SINET) has aided in the advancement of collaborative research and remote education in Japan and around the world by leveraging innovative technologies to upgrade its cutting-edge network every four to six years. Today, it serves as the academic backbone network for over 900 universities and research institutions. It connects over three million users and is linked to other research networks in the United States, Europe and Asia to support international research collaboration.

In recent years, the exponential growth of data traffic and the growing need for data analysis has resulted in a demand for faster connectivity, expanded bandwidth and simplified networking services. Furthermore, there is a push to expand SINET into Society 5.0 and elementary, junior high and high school settings, making it a critical pillar in Japan’s $4.4 billion GIGA School Program, which aims to prepare students for the country’s push toward a post-information society.

Building on a relationship that spans over a decade, NII engaged Juniper for SINET6 with the goal of improving its services by implementing advanced technologies such as 400G optical transmission, 5G mobile and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). To scale SINET6’s reach and performance to 400G, NII selected Juniper’s MX Series Universal Routing Platforms and ACX Series Cloud Metro Routers for router network.

SINET6’s supported POPs have now seen a 1.5x increase to 70 sites, improving connectivity experiences for the country’s research institutions. SINET6 also utilizes Juniper’s PseudoWire Headend Termination (PWHT) capability provided by Junos OS, directly connecting sites using the ACX Cloud Metro Routers, lowering connectivity costs and simplifying the network. To safeguard against cyberattacks, the Juniper and Corero Joint DDoS Protection Solution was integrated with the MX Routing Platforms to enable high-speed, low-load and accurate attack traffic detection and defense.

With networking upgrades from Juniper, NII officially launched SINET6 in April 2022, and it is now being considered for use in a broader range of research and education applications than ever before, with plans to evolve even further as a network service. Looking ahead, efforts to streamline and automate the network are planned for the upcoming SINET7 in order to meet the diverse needs of the growing number of subscribers.

Supporting Quotes:

“We are delighted to have Juniper Networks join us on this journey to create the latest and most advanced iteration of SINET. Juniper’s solutions are enough considered the requests of SINET6, providing with one of the most advanced networks that can support game-changing research and seamless digital learning experiences. With Juniper, we are confident that we have a strong foundation to meet the current and future needs of Japan’s research and education institutions for years to come.”

– Takashi Kurimoto, Associate Professor, Information Systems Architecture Science Research Division, National Institute of Informatics

“It is an honor to once again be chosen by NII to provide our experience-first solutions to power SINET6, which supports cutting-edge research and education in Japan. Building on our long-standing partnership, NII has built a cost-effective and highly reliable network that takes advantage of all the capabilities of 400G. We are excited to continue contributing to SINET’s evolution and are committed to powering the best research and education experiences in the country.”

Tomohiro Furuya, VP & Country Manager, Japan, Juniper Networks

Chevron Delivers First Offset-Paired LNG Cargo

Chevron Delivers First Offset-Paired LNG Cargo

SAN RAMON, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) today announced that its subsidiary, Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (Singapore Branch) (Chevron), has safely delivered its first shipment of offset-paired liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo.

Greenhouse gas emissions for the cargo, from the Gorgon Project off the northwest coast of Western Australia, will be fully offset via the retirement of high-quality nature-based and energy efficiency offsets in Cambodia, Indonesia and Nepal.

“Chevron’s first full lifecycle emissions offset cargo advances our net zero ambitions and represents a significant milestone in Chevron’s relationship with CPC Corporation, Taiwan,” said John Kuehn, President of Chevron Supply and Trading, a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc.

“We share the view that the future of energy is lower carbon and expect this offset-paired cargo to be the first of many as we leverage our capabilities, assets, and customer relationships to deliver energy solutions to a growing world.”

For this cargo, Chevron’s Scope 1 and 2 emissions (emissions from upstream production, transportation, liquefaction and shipping) were calculated based on methodology jointly developed by Chevron, Pavilion Energy Trading & Supply Pte. Ltd. and QatarEnergy in 2021, with Scope 3 emissions calculated based on PACE Global report1 for regas and distribution and IPCC 2006 emission factor2 for combustion.

The emissions will be fully offset via the surrender of Verra3 certified offsets, namely the Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project in Indonesia, the Southern Cardamom REDD+ Project in Cambodia and the Energy Efficient Cooking Solution in Nepal.

About Chevron

Chevron is one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies. We believe affordable, reliable and ever-cleaner energy is essential to achieving a more prosperous and sustainable world. Chevron produces crude oil and natural gas; manufactures transportation fuels, lubricants, petrochemicals and additives; and develops technologies that enhance our business and the industry. We are focused on lowering the carbon intensity in our operations and growing lower carbon businesses along with our traditional business lines. More information about Chevron is available at www.chevron.com.

CPC was founded on June 1, 1946 with a mandate to lead the country’s energy sector. For the more than 70 years since then, we have fulfilled that commitment by taking on responsibility for the development of national energy resources.

While tackling these challenges, we have not wavered in making our just contribution to Taiwan’s economic progress and its citizens’ welfare.
