5G hype to be reflected in reality — Cisco CEO

first_img Chuck Robbins, CEO of Cisco, took to the stage at MWC19 Barcelona to proclaim that after years of thinking and talking about 5G, the next-generation of mobile technology has finally arrived.And, he said 5G is one technology that feels like the hype is going to be reflected in the reality.“We are truly embarking on incredible times,” he said. “As we think about this next phase that we’re getting ready to enter into, it is going to be like no other phase we’ve ever seen.”Robbins cited some statistics to illustrate what lies ahead, based on the latest Cisco Visual Networking Index report. “We believe in the year 2022 … there will be more traffic created than there has been created since the inception of the internet,” he said.Among other forecasts, Robbins said there will be more than 400 million 5G connections in three years.  “We may be off, but if we’re off it’s probably going to be higher,” he added.  There will also be 4 billion machine-to-machine connections. “IoT is going to become very real as we move forward.”And these connections are going to generate far more traffic than today, said Robbins, who suggested it could be up to six times higher.“It’s going to be massive scale. And this has huge implications for all, making possible the creation of new applications and bringing new opportunities for a broad range of industries, from mining through to autonomous driving.”He also touted the technology’s potential to boost connectivity all over the world.Different approach However, Robbins warned that mobile operators will have to think differently about how they architect the underlying network technology in the future. “The technology you put in the network is going to be different from everything we have ever built,” he said.Robbins emphasised the need to work with partners to build out new capabilities for enterprise, for example.He pointed to the achievements of Cisco’s partner Rakuten, which is building the first new mobile network in Japan in 10 years.As explained by Mickey Mikitani, founder, chairman and CEO of Rakuten, the operator’s new network is very different from what has been built before.He described it as the first end-to-end, fully virtualised, cloud-native mobile network that uses little hardware, costs much less to build and maintain, and is 5G-ready from day one.Mikitani’s parting message, and perhaps challenge to other mobile operators, was: “Our philosophy of network is completely different. And we are presenting a totally new concept for mobile networks.” Subscribe to our daily newsletter Back Tags AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 27 FEB 2019 HomeMWC19 – News 5G hype to be reflected in reality — Cisco CEO Author Mobile World Live Cisco Previous ArticleOperators wrestle with 5G capital spendNext ArticlePartner Interview: Accenture Mobile World Live is the online service dedicated to providing the mobile industry with daily news coverage & analysis of the biggest global market developments.

Failure to disclose company links brings revocations

first_imgA failure to disclose links between Renown Transport Services and Eastbourne Coachways prior to a pre-pack sale have led to the revocation of the licences held by both companies by Traffic Commissioner (TC) Sarah Bell.Following an Eastbourne Public Inquiry, the TC revoked the Renown licence with immediate effect and the Eastbourne Coachways licence with effect from 24 July, cutting the licence authorisation in the interim from 16 to eight vehicles.The two Bexhill-on-Sea based companies were called before the TC after Renown entered financial difficulties and tried to save parts of the firm, with a view to resurrecting it via Eastbourne Coachways.This left HMRC, trade creditors and some financial institutions out of pocket. Before that had become apparent, Eastbourne Coachways had applied to the Office of the Traffic Commissioner to get permission to operate Renown’s former bus services at short notice after Renown had cancelled its services without giving the required 56 days’ notice.Highlighting the importance of providing a level playing field for all operators, the TC said that failing to complete forms and ignoring guidance, as these two companies had done, was a gross breach of trust. Margins were tight, but if operators chose to operate coaches, bus or lorries, then there were rules to be met and the TCs were there to make sure that standards were maintained for public safety.Forms and guidance were not just administrative paperwork. They were the “bedrock” on which TCs ensured road safety and fair competition.last_img read more


Rio History: Getting Her Two Cents Worth

first_img Share By STEVE HATHCOCKSpecial to the PRESSBack in 2007 I bought a canvas bag full of pennies from a man who had accumulated them over the past couple of decades. He tried to exchange them for currency at his bank but was told that large amounts of coins had to be in rolls in order for the bank to accept them. He told me that his intention was just to cash them in so he would happily sell them to me at face value. We did a quick estimate and I presented him with $90. Eagerly I spilled the coins unto the counter where Kay and I began a cursory search for wheat pennies. (Those minted from 1910-1959)There were plenty of “wheaties” with the oldest being a well worn specimen from 1910.“What this?” Kay asked as she handed me a silver colored coin.Taking on the tone of a professor I peered closely at her find and began to explain:“Due to wartime demand for copper for use in ammunition and other military equipment during World War II the United States Mint experimented with several different substitutes to replace the bronze alloy used to date.But problems soon developed. The composition of the new alloy, which was 99 percent steel with a layer of galvanized zinc, produced a coin that was silver in color, magnetic and 13 percent lighter. Freshly minted pennies were often mistaken for dimes while magnets inside vending machines which readily accepted copper coins could not differentiate between steel slugs and the new pennies and rejected both causing the new penny to earn the nick name “Steelies.”In addition, the galvanization process didn’t cover the edges of the coins which allowed the new steel coin to quickly rust. Undeterred, the mint tried using salvaged brass shell casings with a measure of pure copper to produce an alloy close to the pre-war composition. This was used for 1944–46-dated cents, after which the prewar composition was resumed. Although they continued to circulate into the 1960s, the mint collected large numbers of the 1943 cents and destroyed them.In today’s market, a circulated “steelie” will bring about 25 cents. Those in extra fine and uncirculated condition will command anywhere from a dollar to five or six dollars a coin. However, as in any other issue, those specimens in superb condition with sharp details and an unblemished surface can bring a much higher price.”About then I heard the back door swish shut….Kay?Oh well……….I guess she will have to wait until another time to get her 2 cents worth!Want the whole story?

Week 17: Ravens should not look ahead

first_imgThe Baltimore Ravens end their regular season this Sunday at 4:25 (Thanks NFL) with a home game against the Cincinnati Bengals.This week a lot of reporters, fans, and analysts have been doing different playoffs scenarios involving the Ravens. Most of them have the Ravens playing the Chiefs in a 4-5 seed matchup. But after last week’s scare against the Indianapolis Colts, I am very hesitant to talk as if the Ravens already have the playoff spot secure. Even though the Bengals haven’t performed well this season and are eliminated from playoff contention, they are not going to roll over for the Ravens. Just ask the Lions who the Bengals played spoiler for last Sunday.The Ravens did shut out the Bengals in week 1. But they still have AJ Green at receiver which is enough to scare me, seeing as how every number 1 receiver the Ravens have faced in the past 5 weeks outside of Josh Gordon has went over 100 yards. He’s broken our heart enough in the past and I’m pretty sure he’s looking forward to doing it now. I know we do have backup plans if we do lose but lets take a closer look at those backups. If the Ravens lose, they can still get in if the Bills lose against the Dolphins OR if the Titans lose against the Jags. I am not counting on Jay Cutler to have my back so I don’t trust the Dolphins to beat Buffalo. The Jags already have the number three seed locked up and have injuries so they won’t be at full strength against the Titans.Those two games can easily go wrong for the Ravens so I think we should be locked in and treat this week’s game like a playoff game. Or trust Jay Cutler the choice is yours.Please follow and like us:last_img read more

Incredible Weekend For Galway Handball at 2018 Feile

first_imgAbbeyknockmoy (Galway) are celebrating this morning after almost eleven hours of play they emerged victorious in the Boys 40×20 Div 1 Final when they overcame Breacach (Tyrone) by the slimmest of margins. In fact there was very little between all 5 clubs in the division with only 2 points separating all the teams, so final placing were decided on aces scored. In the main final Breacach had a commanding lead after the first game leading 21-6. Abbey backs were really up against the wall at this stage going into the final game but Mikey Kelly the Boys Div 1 skills winner really turned on the style and with some excellent shots. The large crowed was very excited as the game entered the final stages with both sides encouraging their players. The scores were all level with just a minute left on the clock but Abbey got the final few scores to win 27-24. This is in fact the first time a Féile Handball Boys Div 1 title has been won by a Galway club and it was really nice for it to happen in Moycullen.In the Girls 40×20 Div 1 Final Clogh (Kilkenny) came back from 11-21 down after the first game to overcome Micheál Breathnach (Galway) on a final score-line 32-23. This turn around was partly as a result of the excellent display of the Girls 40×20 Div 1 skills winner Amy Brennan who put in a stela performance in the final game.In the 60×30 event a very enjoyable day was had in Moycullen where Kilfane (Kilkenny) saw off Ballina (Tipperary) to win the Div 1 grade winning 42-10.In the One Wall Féile Boys competition was won by the Clogh Ballacolla (Laois) when they overcame Mountbellew/Moylough (Galway) 48-24 while in the Girls final the Mountbellew/Moylough (Galway) team defeated Oughterard (Galway) 47-21.GAA Handball would like to thank all the Galway venues for their hospitality and especially all the volunteers at each venue who ran everything so smoothly on the day. We also thank all the coaches, parents, the National & Local Féile organising committee’s, but most important of all we would like to congratulate all the players for contributing to such a brilliant day of Handball that will live long in their memories.Team Results – Galway Results In Bold40×20 Boys FinalsDiv 1: Abbeyknockmoy (Galway) dft Breacach (Tyrone) 27-24Div 1 (Plate): Kells (Kilkenny) dft Loughmacrory (Tyrone) 34-12Div 2: Fermoy (Cork) dft Ballydesmond 1 (Cork) 29-27Div 2 (Plate): Monaghan Harps (Monaghan) dft Moycullen 1 (Galway) 41-18Div 3: Kingscourt 1 (Cavan) dft Micheál Breathnach (Galway) 40-17Div 3 (Plate): Windgap (Kilkenny) dft Friary/Abbeyside/Ballinacourty 1 (Waterford) 27-16Div 4: Cullohill 1 (Laois) dft Claregalway (Galway) 28-25Div 4 (Plate): Conna 1 (Cork) dft Clooney-Quin (Clare) 27-24Div 5: Clogh (Kilkenny) dft Kingscourt (Cavan) 42-14Div 5 (Plate): Boherbue (Cork) dft Annaghdown (Galway) 31-22Div 6: Friary/Abbeyside/Ballinacourty 2 (Waterford) dft Coolboy (Wicklow) 32-32, 11-10Div 6 (Plate): Newport (Mayo) dft Inis Mór (Galway) 36-3140×20 Girls FinalsDiv 1: Clogh (Kilkenny) dft Micheál Breathnach 1 (Galway) 32-23Div 1 (Plate): Cullohill (Laois) dft St. Josephs (Wexford) 32-24Div 2: Kilkishen (Clare) dft Windgap (Kilkenny) 37-22Div 2 (Plate): Micheal Breathnach 2 (Galway) dft Inis Mór (Galway) 42-9Div 3: Garryhill (Carlow) dft Friary/Abbeyside/Ballinacourty (Waterford) 42-19Div 3 (Plate): Williamstown (Galway) dft Ballydesmond (Cork) 45-2460×30 Boys Finals Div 1: Kilfane (Kilkenny) dft Ballina (Tipperary) 42-10Div 1 (Plate): Castleconnor (Sligo) dft Castlebridge (Wexford) 42-16One Wall Boys FinalsDiv 1: Clough Ballacolla (Laois) dft Mountbellew/Moylough (Galway) 48-24Div 1 (Plate): Oughterard (Galway) dft Millmount (Louth) 45-18One Wall Girls FinalsDiv 1: Mountbellew/Moylough (Galway) dft Oughterard (Galway) 47-21Skills Results40×20 Boys Div 11st– Mikey Kelly (Abbeyknockmoy)2nd– Harry Delaney (Kells)3rd – Daniel Hanrahan (Galmoy)40×20 Girls Div 11st– Amy Brennan (Clogh)2nd – Éadaoin Nic Dhonnacha (Micheál Breathnach)3rd – Jodie Keeling (St. Josephs)60×30 Boys Div 11st– Sean O’Keeffe (Kilfane)2nd– Darragh Bourke (Castleconnor)3rd– Evan Carey (Ballina)One Wall Boys Div 11st– Joseph Gallagher (Mountbellew/Moylough)2nd– Ture Kleefeld (Oughterard)3rd – Kevin Hyland (Clough Ballacolla)One Wall Girls Div 11st– Emma Ryan (Mountbellew/Moylough)2nd– Aimee McAteer (Mayobridge)3rd – Kyla Sweeney (Oughterard) The John West sponsored national Féile na nGael Handball competition has once again proved to be an exceptional day of Handball as the counties top young Under 14 Handballers displayed great skills for everyone to enjoy.

Museum peace

first_imgFOR a while, it looked like the Children’s Museum of Los Angeles was going to become a monument to apathy, and not the beacon of learning it was meant to be. But prospects for the San Fernando Valley’s first museum have improved, and there’s reason to hope that the facility might just see the light of day after all. A month ago, the museum was $3.3 million short on its bills, and contractors were threatening to pack up their tools and go home. But the city bailed the museum out with a short-term emergency loan of $1.75 million. Meanwhile, contributors have stepped up, big time. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Over the last four weeks, the museum has raised $1 million, including a single anonymous donation of $500,000, which is more than it raised in the entire previous year. It might have taken a crisis to spur them to action, but local residents and businesses finally seem energized about the need for this priceless institution. That said, museum officials still must raise another $250,000 in the next 10 days – and beyond that, it will take $20 million more to complete the project. So we still need to dig deep.
