Tweet Also in today's EMEA regional roundup: key Vodafone exec to retire in June; Tilgin looks for partners; EE takes TV everywhere; SoundCloud goes mainstream. Finland's Cinia Group and the now- Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK)-owned Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks (ASN) say they have successfully completed tests on the C-Lion 1 subsea cable system between Germany and Finland, achieving a capacity of 18 Tbit/s of data per fiber pair. Vodafone Group plc (NYSE: VOD)'s group business development director, Warren Finegold, is to retire at the end of June, though he will still act as an adviser to the mobile giant. Finegold played a significant role in the $130 billion disposal of Vodafone's interest in Verizon Wireless , as well as the acquisitions of Kabel Deutschland and ONO and the acquisition of Hutchison's interest in India. His association with Vodafone began in 1988, when he was part of the investment banking team that took the company public. Brightcove Inc. , the Boston-based video delivery specialist, has appointed Mark Blair as vice president of EMEA to lead the company's operations in the region. Previously, Blair was Brightcove's vice president of Asia-Pacific. Brightcove has more than 5,000 customers worldwide, one of them being some outfit called Light Reading. Tilgin AB , the Swedish supplier of home gateways, is looking for new partners in EMEA, Russia and the Baltic states to help it expand its business in those regions. EE , the UK mobile and pay-TV operator that is now a part of BT Group plc (NYSE: BT; London: BTA), has introduced a "Recordings To Go" feature that allows EE TV users to record free-to-view programs to their smartphone or tablet to watch while out and about, sans WiFi. Content can be recorded and transferred to a mobile device as soon as it has aired. Berlin-based SoundCloud, which made its name as the hipsters' online audio resource of choice, has joined the ranks of more "traditional" streaming services with the launch of a $10-a-month premium offering, reports Bloomberg . SoundCloud has enjoyed a healthy user base but it has struggled to make money out of it -- hence the move to the streaming, er, mainstream.

Peregrine Power is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Universal Utility/Customer Interface. Their research project will lead to an electrical panel with modules that provide interfaces between the electrical grid and the residential customer's on-site loads and other energy systems. Through the use of interactive solid state meters, the utility will be able to intelligently regulate loads and dispatch on-site energy systems. The on-site energy systems include, but are not limited to, controlled loads (e.g., water heating), pluggable EVs, generation systems (e.g., PV panels), and energy storage (e.g., spent EV batteries). The panel and modules represent the most integrated and economic system attempted so far to enable more intelligent energy management and will encourage renewable energy and conservation. In addition, new grid stabilization opportunities will be created for the utility. The proposed approach will use advanced power electronics, along with state-of-the-art communications techniques. The broader impacts of this research are (1) to enable utilities and over 50,000,000 residential customers to implement safe, convenient and economic energy management techniques, (2) to encourage renewable energy, and (3) to provide distributed generation and storage systems that assist the utility in stabilizing the grid. This would lead to more reliable and less costly energy for the customer, along with reduced greenhouse gas.
