Test result from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) showed that the air conditioners of the country's electronics giant Walton have very low power consumption.
“The test by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Buet, shows Walton AC consumes power worth Tk 3.74 per hour, assessing Walton brand inverter AC is more than 60 percent energy efficient,” said a press release.
Earlier this year, a BUET team collected six samples of one ton inverter split AC from Walton factory at Chandra in Gazipur and conducted tests.
The test was conducted under the supervision of BUET professors Md. Zahurul Haque and Dr. Alok Kumar Majumdar on February 3.
The test shows that Walton's one ton of inverter AC consumes 0.715 kilowatts electricity per hour in eco mode and according to the current price of electricity, the price is only Tk3.74.
Walton has been manufacturing world standard ACs in its own factory under intensive supervision, having a strong R&D (research and development) team to improve the quality of ACs.
Mahfuzur Rahman, chief operating officer, Walton AC, said Walton AC has gained wide popularity across the country due to its various features like state-of-the-art technology, higher quality, low power consumption, affordable price, easy installment facility, free installation, easy availability and best after-sales service.

Huawei is providing its state-of-the-art SMS solution to Teletalk to facilitate SMS-based access to SSC and equivalent exam results scheduled to be published by all the education boards on Sunday.
The convenient digital solution will allow students as well as their parents to get the results from the comfort of their homes. Thus it will also work as a deterrent against the spread of the Coronavirus at the community level.
According to Education Ministry officials, results of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent exams will be published on Sunday, May 31. Students can pre-register for the service till May 30.
For those who pre-register, the results will be sent to all registered mobile numbers through SMS as soon as they are published by the board. Those who don’t can follow the same process after the results are out and extract their results.
To know about SSC results, SMS should be sent to 16222 with the text SSC<space>Board Name<space>Roll<space>Year.
Earlier, Teletalk thanked Huawei on their Facebook page, for providing the service to them.
Jerry Wang, CTO of Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited,says, “Huawei aims to bring a Better Connected Intelligent Bangladesh. And our unique solutions play an important role. It is our pride that our Short Messaging Service Center solution can help numbers of SSC candidates to be safe.”
This year, the SSC exams began on February 3, with the theoretical and practical tests ending on February 27 and March 6 respectively.
Around 2,050,000 students took part in the exams in over 3,500 centers from around 29,000 educational institutions across the country.
The results will also be available on the Education Ministry’s website.
The Bangladesh Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR) became the latest institution to sequence the genome of coronavirus samples from Bangladesh, revealing the 3 samples they worked with strongly suggested the virus arrived here from Europe.
BCSIR completed sequencing of three SARS-CoV-2 samples at its laboratory.
The detailed information of the successful sequencing is viewable through the website of the Global Initiative on Sharing All Influenza Data (GISAID), where the database is stored.
“According to analysis, this Bangladeshi virus has 99.99 percent similarity with European sources, particularly Sweden,” said Dr Md Selim Khan, Principal Scientific Officer, project director and the team leader of the researchers.
Data analysis showed that nine variants were available at the amino acid level.
This brings the total number of genomes sequenced in Bangladesh to 23. And yet
“twenty-three complete sequencing data, including three from BCSIR, are not enough for detail knowledge or to come to a conclusion,” the media statement said.
Bangladesh needs more sequencing data from different places to speed up its research activities including that of developing a vaccine.
Earlier, Science and Technology Minister Yeafesh Osman and the ministry’s secretary directed to collect samples from all possible places of the country and sequence them at genomic research laboratory of BCSIR.
“Once the work is done, it will help develop antidote, medicine and vaccine,” the statement said.
Bangladesh is grappling with a rising number of coronavirus cases. On Saturday, it reported 28 deaths and 1,764 cases. So far, the country has confirmed 44,608 cases and 610 deaths.
Huawei, a global provider of ICT technologies, has won the world’s first Common Criteria (CC) Evaluation Assurance Level（EAL）4+ certificate for 5G products.
This certificate indicates the security of Huawei 5G base station products reaches the world-leading level and can provide trusted security assurance for 5G wireless access, the company said in a press release.
CCN (Centro Criptologico National), a Spain certification authority, officially issued the certificate to Huawei 5900 Series 5G gNodeB software on May 20.
The evaluation has been conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Spanish IT Security Evaluation and Certification Scheme, and the conclusions of the evaluation facility in the evaluation technical report are consistent with the evidence adduced, according to CCN.
CC certification is a widely recognised security certification in the world. There are seven levels. For EAL4+ or higher level, the source code needs to be tested and certified. EAL4 is “the highest level at which it is likely to be economically feasible to retrofit to an existing product line.”
“Huawei believes that trust needs to be based on facts, facts need to be verifiable, and verification needs to be based on common standards. By using industry practices, certification is the most effective way to address security issues,” said Jay Chen, vice president of Huawei Asia Pacific.
Huawei has incorporated internationally recognized cyber security certification standards and requirements, such as CC and FIPS, into product R&D, and actively invites third-party labs to certify Huawei products. Currently, its products and solutions have obtained more than 270 security certificates (including CC, FIPS, and CSA).
“The awarding of the world's first 5G CC EAL4+ certificate once again demonstrates our 5G leadership. Huawei will continue to explore innovative 5G technologies, and to facilitate global operators in achieving 5G commercial use,” Jay added.
