FlipTix® Announces Senior Executive Appointment to New Business Development

Newport Beach, CA, June 19, 2019 –(PR.com)– FlipTix, the ticketing app allowing ticket holders to “flip” tickets if they leave an event early, announced today the company has hired Ashley Carpenter as Vice President of New Business. Based in Austin, Texas, Carpenter will be working with major North American festivals to integrate the FlipTix technology and to pursue additional live event sectors positioned to benefit from new sales based on the early departure of fans.

Carpenter comes to FlipTix from Front Gate Tickets where she served as the Director of Business Development, negotiating pricing and contractual terms for more than 30 of the largest festivals and live event promoters in North America.

Front Gate Tickets works with premier music festivals including Austin City Limits Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Digital Dreams, Electric Daisy Carnival, Electric Forest Festival, Outside Lands, RBC (Ottawa) Bluesfest and more.

“I am so excited to join the team at FlipTix,” Carpenter says. “I’ve seen firsthand the immense value the product brings to festival and live event promoters and can’t wait to help grow a company I truly believe in.”

Using the FlipTix app, ticket holders who exit prior to the end of an event simply provide notice through FlipTix that they have left the venue, and new fans are notified that a Flip is available. Prices are set automatically based on the amount of time remaining (in combination with other variables). Sellers receive remuneration after their ticket is flipped and buyers get a digital ticket delivered directly to their phone for entry or for wristband redemption.

“We started in 2017 after seeing the ticketing industry leaving revenue on the table,” said FlipTix CEO Jaime Siegel. “Our team is thrilled with our accomplishments to this point and adding Ashley’s deeply-rooted festival experience can only improve our awareness and partnership opportunities.”

FlipTix currently works with major festivals including BUKU Music + Art Project, Off The Rails Country Music Festival, KAABOO Del Mar, KAABOO Texas, Sonic Temple and Clusterfest through partnerships with festival promoters AEG Presents, Danny Wimmer Presents and Stage Left Entertainment.

FiberHome Selects Ethernity Networks’ ACE-NIC100 to Power New FitBNG

Tele Aviv, Israel, June 19, 2019 –(PR.com)– Ethernity Networks, a leading innovator of comprehensive networking and security solutions on programmable hardware, announced today that its ACE-NIC100 FPGA SmartNIC has been selected for implementation within the FitBNG, the latest broadband network gateway (BNG) product by FiberHome Telecommunication Technologies, a major Chinese networking and telecommunication equipment provider.

The accelerated platform will integrate FiberHome’s BNG software and Ethernity’s SmartNIC hardware using standard DPDK (data plane development kit) to fully offload up to 80Gbps of data processing to the ACE-NIC100’s onboard FPGA. This will minimize CPU intervention, saving CPU cycles and significantly reducing CPU power and cost. Moreover, the ACE-NIC100 will support tens of thousands of subscribers with PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) termination, performance monitoring counters per subscriber, and hierarchical quality of service (H-QoS), which is impractical for implementation in software-only BNG.

“We have been working closely with Ethernity for months to develop a solution that includes the performance and features that best fit our needs,” said Mr. Wang Ye, Director of NFV Product Lines at FiberHome. “Ethernity’s ACE-NIC100, with its high throughput and offloading capabilities, is an ideal fit for our FitBNG solution architecture, and by reducing the required CPU cores, we have improved our cost efficiency as well. It’s a very powerful enabler for FiberHome.”

The resulting product will be promoted to FiberHome’s core Chinese telecom operator clients, including China Unicom, China Telecom, and others, that serve tens of millions of households.

“We are thrilled that FiberHome chose Ethernity’s SmartNIC to accelerate their new FitBNG,” said David Levi, CEO of Ethernity Networks. “With FiberHome’s powerful software and Ethernity’s FPGA-based hardware, the product will provide high performance and reduced cost through hardware acceleration, making it especially attractive to Chinese service providers.”

The new product will be jointly showcased by Ethernity and FiberHome at Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2019 from June 26-28 at Hall N2 Booth E70.
