Google has joined with Faster, development consortium submarine cable that will connect Japan and the United States with connections up to 60 Tbps.
This consortium consists of China Mobile International, China Telecom Global, Global Transit, KDDI, and SingTel. For this project vendors use the services of NEC.
Google’s VP of Technical Infrastructure Urs Hölzle said Google’s participation in this project to ensure the existence of a fast internet connection since many users and developers of Android applications utilize Google Cloud platform in the region.
Earlier, in 2008 has also been investing in the Trans Pacific submarine cable network that also connects Japan and the United States.
Through its subsidiary – Google SJC Bermuda Ltd. – Google also joined in the investment of USD 400 million to build a submarine cable linking Southeast Asia with Japan. This infrastructure has been operating in June that brings the speed of 28 Tbps.
In the United States alone, Google brings it closer to the access infrastructure hub in the West Coast area including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle. This is all so the connection to the data center of the Japanese-owned company to be faster.
Smartphone aka smart phones lately more and more population. Actually, who are ‘ancestors’ of this smartphone? The answer it turns out is the IBM Simon.
Yes, IBM Simon which was introduced 20 years a lot of light referred to as the first smartphone in the world. He marketed the first time on August 16, 1994 At the time, it is called a smartphone yet.
“Simon was not called as a smartphone at that time., But its like as we are seeing now,” said Charlotte Connelly, curator at the Science Museum London.
“There is a calendar can be used for writing notes, and send emails as well as messages and combine all of these things with mobile capabilities,” said Connelly.
With gambot body weighing 500 grams, Simon is actually quite difficult to grasp or put into the pocket of clothing. But Connelly stated advanced design of the era.
Like a brick but it really is not as big as you might think. He has a stylus and green LCD screen the same size as the iPhone 4 In fact, his form was not bad.
IBM Simon only sold about 50 thousand pieces, probably because the price is comparatively very expensive at that time, ie EUR 899 With the current exchange rate in the range of USD 1400 or USD 16 million.
“The battery is only able to survive an hour and no mobile internet at the time. So he was not so successful,” said Connelly.
However, the IBM Simon still considered revolutionary and begin the era of smartphones. The device for the first time successfully combines PDA functionality with cell phone technology.
“Simon is the first device that combines two things in a single package. He can do all things as in PDAs and fax capabilities as well as the email had though to be linked to a computer to do it. Which is why we call it the first smartphone,” said Connelly.
IBM Simon could only be marketed in the United States. Now existence is endangered and some into museum collections.
