(NaaS) Network as a Service Market size drivers are Cloud computing, advent of network virtualization, Software Defined Networking (SDN), expanding demand for global connectivity, software-defined standard shift across the whole IT industry and growing awareness among the organizations about the monetary benefits. Increasing need for pay-per-use business model is also a key growth driver.

The recent advancements in technology have led to abundance of applications in numerous segments and global usage of wireless services has provided solutions for the reduced cost for deployment for management and asset tracking management.

The enterprises are inclining towards one of the emerging trends in network as a service market called Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) as per the observation made among various telecom service providers. This network framework will virtualize various network functions such as load balancers, firewalls, and intrusion detection devices and will help the telecom service providers to achieve low CAPEX, scalability and smooth service deployments. An increasing number of IT companies partnering with pure-play NaaS vendors who provide NFV benefits will augment network as a service market size.

Bandwidth on Demand (BoD) has created a vibrant scope for the stakeholders and for the marketers in the network as a service market. The main benefit of BoD is that the enterprises can purchase it from their respective Internet service Providers (ISPs) at a comparatively lesser price, instead of giving a higher price to another ISP for leasing a fixed bandwidth. With the help of BoD, the Network Bandwidth can be scaled by the organization to aid the cloud applications, therefore it is very scalable. BoD makes sure that it is ready to use for the end user disposal, that is why it works in the background. It also takes care of a robust privacy feature while the cloud is used, over the network.

The IT and telecom users are speedily using several cloud and networking technologies, which vary from just checking emails to handling the vast data of the enterprise which is placed on the cloud. A huge amount of data is therefore generated by the growing usage of IT and telecommunication. The need for cloud platform among the organizations is increasing tremendously since cloud has become an economic platform for application of various resources. In this case, the network providers offer their major network resources to the third parties based on commercial applications. These resources include data and communication & intelligence as well.

Network virtualization has considerable benefits such as less time, effort and expenditure on the hardware, a reduced amount of need for hardcore technical skills, improved privacy alternatives, enhanced recovery systems in case of system failure.

Challenges like privacy concerns and data security will hamper the network as a service market growth. Data security and privacy concerns denote the persistent areas of focus for the businesses and organizations because of the critical and confidential business data. Storing important files and the data with high confidentiality on services provided by the external service operators poses a lot of risk. Even though cloud service providers offer the industry certifications and the best security standards, the business data is exposed to the service provider with the usage of cloud-supported technologies, due to which fresh security challenges arise.

Vendors in the network as a service market are Cisco, IBM, Juniper Networks, VMware, Fatpipe Networks, CloudGenix, Silver Peak Systems, Akamai Technologies, etc.

TORONTO, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Golden Star Resources Ltd. (NYSE MKT: GSS; TSX: GSC; GSE: GSR) ("Golden Star" or the "Company") announces that its subsidiary, Golden Star (Wassa) Limited ("GSWL"), has signed a commitment letter for a $25 million secured loan facility (the "Facility") with Ecobank Ghana Limited ("Ecobank").

GSWL has twelve months from the date of the commitment letter to drawdown the Facility, if it wishes to do so, and the Facility will be repayable within 60 months of initial drawdown. There are no early prepayment penalties. Interest on amounts drawn under the Facility would be payable monthly at three month LIBOR plus a spread of 8.0% payable in arrears.

The Company anticipates that any drawdowns from the Facility would be used for general working capital purposes.

Sam Coetzer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Golden Star, commented:

"Arranging this financing facility is another building block in Golden Star's transition into a low risk, mid-tier gold producer. We are continuing to strengthen the Company on all fronts and ensuring we have access to low cost capital in advance of any such need is part of this process."

All monetary amounts refer to United States dollars unless otherwise indicated.

Golden Star is an established gold mining company that owns and operates the Wassa and Prestea mines situated on the prolific Ashanti Gold Belt in Ghana, West Africa. Listed on the NYSE MKT, the TSX, and the GSE, Golden Star is strategically focused on increasing operating margins and cash flow through the development of its two high grade, low cost underground mines both in conjunction with existing open pit operations. The Wassa Underground Gold Mine commenced commercial production in January 2017 and the Prestea Underground Gold Mine is expected to achieve commercial production in mid-2017. Gold production in 2017 is expected to be 255,000-280,000 ounces with cash operating costs of $780-860 per ounce.

    The NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007, Pub. L. 110-180 (NIAA or the Act), was signed into law on January 8, 2008, in the wake of the April 2007 shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech. The Virginia Tech shooter was able to purchase firearms from a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) because information about his prohibiting mental health history was not available to the NICS, and the system was therefore unable to deny the transfer of the firearms used in the shootings. The NIAA seeks to address the gap in information available to NICS about such prohibiting mental health adjudications and commitments, and other prohibiting factors. Filling these information gaps will better enable the system to operate as intended to keep guns out of the hands of persons prohibited by federal or state law from receiving or possessing firearms. The automation of records will also reduce delays for law-abiding persons to purchase firearms.

    Deadline: Applicants must register with Grants.gov prior to submitting an application. All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on April 19, 2017.

    Eligibility: Eligible applicants are limited to (a) the agency designated by the Governor to administer the NARIP, (b) the state or territory central administrative office or similar entity designated by statute or regulation to administer federal grant funds on behalf of the jurisdiction’s court system, or (c) federally recognized Indian tribal governments as determined by the Secretary of the Interior.

    Contact Information: For assistance with any other requirements of this solicitation, contact Devon B. Adams, Chief, Criminal Justice Data Improvement Program, by telephone at 202-307-0765, or by email at askbjs@usdoj.gov. Include “NARIP17” in the subject line.

Criminal justice statistics programs

Data collection and processing

BJS maintains nearly three dozen major statistical series designed to cover each stage of the criminal justice system. A description of the various BJS data series can be found under the topical references on the BJS home page. The U.S. Census Bureau carries out the majority of BJS’s data collection activities. However, BJS conducts several statistical programs for which other non-profit organizations serve as BJS data collection agents. BJS periodically announces solicitations for these programs in the Federal Register and current solicitations are listed at the top of this page.

Statistical and methodological research

BJS conducts, supports, and implements methodological research and initiatives designed to improve the quality of justice statistics, records, and information systems.

BJS, in partnership with the American Statistical Association (ASA), sponsors research projects designed to foster improvements in the methods used to obtain, analyze, and report national-level data on crime and criminal justice. Each year, new topics for methodological research are identified by BJS and ASA. Solicitations for new research projects are announced each year in February and October.

The BJS Visiting Fellows Program promotes criminal justice statistical research among the academic and professional justice community. Visiting Fellows participate in a specifically designed research project of particular operational relevance to the national or international justice system. The program offers criminal justice researchers an opportunity to have a significant impact on specific BJS projects as well as a chance to examine innovative approaches to the analysis and dissemination of BJS data.

Assistance to state, local, and tribal governments

National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP) provides financial and technical support to states in improving the accuracy, utility, and interstate accessibility of criminal history records and enhancing records of protective orders involving domestic violence and stalking, sex offender records, automated identification systems, and other state systems supporting national records systems and their use for background checks.

State Justice Statistics (SJS) Program for Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) offers technical and financial support to states to establish and maintain a state-level capacity to collect, analyze, and report statistics on crime and justice in order to contribute to effective state policies and programs and to participate in national data series. Through the creation of SACs, BJS encourages analyses of evolving criminal justice topics of interest within the state using data gathered from state and local agencies and promotes statistical inquiries into improved measures of crime incidence and prevalence.

CannaGrow Holdings Announces the Sale of Seven Strain Lots For Grand Opening of New High-End Dispensary in Trinidad, Colorado

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO–(Marketwired – Mar 30, 2017) – CannaGrow Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK: CGRW) As a Liaison and Consultant providing turnkey solutions to licensed growers, CannaGrow Holdings, Inc. announces Licensed Grower, Category One Botanicals, LLC, has completed the sale of seven (7) different strain lots for the grand opening of a High-End Recreational Dispensary located in Trinidad, Colorado.

Dr. John P. Janovec, COO, stated, „It was a natural fit from the first time we talked with the Executives of the Recreational Dispensary. They were looking to round out their inventory for a Grand Opening and Category One Botanicals had a wide variety of diverse genetic strains cured and ready for market. Blanca Mountain Green, Buffalo Diamond Kush, and Huerfano Red Bud, were among our proprietary strains included in the sale. We expect these and other proprietary strains to become some of our high-demand products throughout the Cannabis Industry in Colorado. In addition to our proprietary strains, Hemlock and White Widow – two strains already known on the market — were included in the transaction. Our combination of „name brand” and in-house private stock strains will give us an edge, and our planned breeding programs will lead to new genetic lines that will prove to be appealing to the Cannabis Community of Colorado. Relationship building is part of our equation for success. We look forward to furthering this relationship by providing a continuous supply of quality Cannabis grown in natural soil-based media and pure Colorado sunshine without the use of dangerous chemical fungicides or pesticides.”

Executives from the High-End Recreational Dispensary added, „Working with the Crew at the Colorado Buffalo Ranch Facility was an easy and seamless process. The facility is very impressive and Master Growers, Dr. John P. Janovec and Jason Wells, have the knowledge and experience in Plant Genetics that will certainly push their products into the spotlight within the Cannabis industry in Colorado. We look forward to building a long-term business relationship with Dr. John, Jason, and their Team at Category One Botanicals.”
