Google’s secret 5G quantum computer in Moscow and Facebook against third-party applications.
Google announced the creation of a powerful quantum computer
A report on the most powerful quantum computer created by Google has appeared on the NASA website. Google’s new quantum processor was able to calculate task in 3 minutes 20 seconds. IBM’s Summit supercomputer would take 10,000 years to do the same. So far, Summit has been considered the most powerful computer.
Interestingly, after some time, the report was deleted from the NASA website. Connections are still unknown. There are several companies involved in creating quantum computers, but the two leaders in this industry are Google and IBM.
5G network tested in Moscow
MTS operator, with the support from the Moscow government, tested the new generation 5G network at VDNH. Communication was tested on solutions for smart vehicles, which are designed to reduce accident rate on city streets. During the tests, cars, pedestrians and elements of the road infrastructure were exchanging real-time information and images from video cameras via 5G, which allowed drivers to get a complete picture of road traffic and, therefore, to avoid accidents.
Data transfer speed in the MTS 5G network exceeded 3.7 gigabits per second, with 10 ms. Huawei smartphone was used for testing.
5G MTS network operates in the area of the Smart City pavilion of the Moscow Department of Information Technology in 28 GHz and 4.9 GHz bands . MTS installed 15 5G base stations there.
Facebook halted 69 thousand applications because of the scandal with Cambridge Analytica
After the user data leak scandal that erupted a year and a half ago, Facebook tested over a million apps that collect user data, 69 thousand of them were stopped. The social network itself notes that the suspension of applications in most cases was due to the fact that the developers were not able to respond in time by email. But in some cases, Facebook found alarming signals about the possible unfair use of user data and sued the development companies. Among them are Korean Rankwave, which analyzes data collection, as well as Singaporean JediMob and LionMobi from Hong Kong, whose applications infected users’ smartphones.
Since 2014, Facebook has allowed the installation of about 9 million different applications.
Study: North American cloud PBX market will grow to $ 5.6 billion by 2027
The market for cloud exchanges in North America in 2018 amounted to $ 1.85 billion. According to the forecast for the North American region, the market of cloud exchanges in North America will grow by an average of 13.3% annually from 2018 to 2027 and will reach $ 5.59 billion in 2027. A key growth factor will be an increase in demand for effective communications among enterprises.
Cloud PBX is able to give its users uninterrupted communication around the world with minimal interruptions in work, which allows organizations to increase productivity and profitability, the forecast says. Since effective communication, such as audio, video conferencing and web conferencing, is considered as one of the key conditions for doing business, the introduction of an Internet telephony system not only provides high-quality and uninterrupted communication, but also reduces capital costs.
The report separately notes the demand for cloud exchanges among small and medium-sized enterprises that are interested in a more rational and adaptive telephone system.
