Once installed, Antigua will be the first country in the region with the most advanced pre-5G network, delivering download peak speeds of up to 800 Mbps. In the trial’s next phase, the Company expects to test a 5G prototype reaching 2 to 5 Gbps peak speeds, which will have a profound positive impact on the island.The announcement came as part of Reid’s keynote address today to prominent Caribbean officials at the 33rd CANTO Annual Conference & Trade Exhibition in the Dominican Republic. “These are exciting times for C&W Communications, as we continue to invest and develop more pioneering innovations to meet the needs of our customers and enable growth in the region through transformative technology,” said Reid. “This pre-5G trial in the Caribbean, is a significant step towards the evolution of C&W’s mobile networks across the region to 5G, and providing Gigabit speeds to our customers in Antigua,” he continued.C&W’s pre-5G technology trial, a combined effort with parent company Liberty Global, is based on LTE Advanced Pro (LTE-A Pro), the latest LTE evolution, that delivers lower latency, more capacity and improved reliability for customers. This translates into a faster mobile internet experience where customers can better participate in advanced technology such as richer video experience and new apps.In early October, the Company will further test a 5G prototype network designed to deliver wireless data connections above 2 Gbps. If the trials are successful, and the business case favorable, the Company plans to invest another $5 million in Antigua alone to significantly upgrade the wireless infrastructure there. C&W has invested $1.5 billion in the region over the last three years.5G is a new set of standards beyond traditional 4G/LTE technologies. This set of standards will allow operators to deliver wireless data connections above 1 Gbps and to enable the Internet of Things (IoT). C&W’s pre-5G trial and 5G prototype trials are part of a partnership with Ericsson, who will provide the equipment and software in Antigua and across the Caribbean.C&W Communications will be a major participant during the 33rd CANTO Annual Telecom Conference & Trade Exhibition, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Punta Cana, The Dominican Republic.

How to Get Out of the Traffic Ghetto

first_imgThe challenge for magazine publishers now, he says, is to take a step up out of the magazine site ghetto into competition with the real Internet players.Perhaps the biggest trend in publishers’ online playbooks these days is social networking—that is, building their own Facebook or MySpace communities within their urls. Fast Company announced in February the relaunch of its site with user profiles—representing a full-blown stab at social networking. “Our aim isn’t to create an impersonal business social network,” proclaimed Mansueto Digital president Ed Sussman, “but to greatly enhance the level of business conversation in the nation.”Also in February, Variety launched the Biz, for better or worse its attempt at a Facebook-style community. And Martha Stewart added social networking features to marthastewart.com last year.New ToolsWikis have clearly made an impression on magazine publishers—even if some admit they still have no idea what one is. Sports Illustrated launched an ambitious archival project, the SI Vault, opening up its 54-year archive to users for linking video, photos, statistics, and, of course, the obligatory Wiki-ing. SI executives hope all the cross-linking and search engine optimization inherent in the Vault will add 5 million monthly unique visitors to the 6 million it currently averages.Like SI, other publishers have stripped away the paid or subscriber walls surrounding their archives, and have seen a healthy bump in traffic for their efforts. The Atlantic opened its archive to non-subscribers in January, and has seen a 15 percent increase in page views. Newsweek opened its archive last fall. The New York Times made headlines in September when it ended its premium archive subscription program, TimesSelect, and opened up most of its archive to the public. According to the Times, search traffic to archive pages has more than doubled since doing so.Donahue points out that other sites have eschewed the traditional—and complex—navigation in favor of a stripped-down, reverse-chronological, bloggy approach. Popular Science, ReadyMade and a slew of other sites have made such a transition in recent years. Other magazines, like Complex and the Fader, have abandoned the traditional magazine Web site altogether, replacing it with a single blog.Other magazines have gone with a simpler—decidedly less sexy—approach. Publishers in the food category, for instance, have retrenched to build out their recipe sections—what Donahue calls “a proven strategy built on the original user generated content play”—and it’s paid off. Reader’s Digest’s AllRecipes.com gets 30 times the page views of rd.com. BHG.com is also above 100 million page views, while Epicurious and MarthaStewart.com lean on recipe content to drive top tier traffic. As most publishers know, there always seems to be a precipitous amount of bad news hanging over the magazine industry (newsstand and advertising numbers down, paper prices up). Yet, if trade magazine box scores are to be believed, online traffic for all magazines—both consumer and b-to-b—continues to grow.But, like all industry trends, the numbers tend to be skewed by the rarified air of magazines above, say, 10 million monthly page views. Indeed, unless you have photos of Lindsay Lohan as Marilyn Monroe, chances are your traffic is sitting somewhere far below that figure—in, for lack of a better term, the “traffic ghetto.”“‘Every magazine tells me great things about their Web strategy,’” wrote Discover Media CEO Henry Donahue, quoting a reporter with whom he was eating lunch, in a recent post on FOLIOmag.com. “‘Then I go back to check their Nielsen traffic and they’re too small to be measured.’”Magazine sites “have grown in the past few years by executing against the basics-unique online content updated multiple times per day, blogs, photo galleries, video, podcasts, user-generated content,” Donahue, a former CFO of Primedia’s Lifestyles Magazine Group, continues. “At this point, though, those features are just the price of admission.” Traffic-Driving TrendsSocial Networking.Fast Company is making a notable attempt to supercharge its user profiles into a full-blown social networking site. Though not a consumer site, Variety is also trying its hand at being Facebook-ish.Blogification.Several sites are jettisoning old-fashioned magazine navigation in favor of a stripped-down blog approach. Check out PopSci.com and ReadyMade. Recipes.Not as sexy as social networking or blogs, but a proven strategy built on the original user generated content play. Reader’s Digest’s AllRecipes.com gets 30 times the page views of rd.com. BHG.com is also above 100 million page views.

French Open 2019 Roger Federer vs Stan Wawrinka in quarterfinal Live streaming

first_imgBrunskill/Getty ImagesRoger Federer is going to play the quarter-final of the 2019 French Open against his compatriot and former doubles partner Stan Wawrinka at the Court Suzzane Lenglen, today. The 37-year-old Swiss legend will appear in his 54th quarter-final of a Grand Slam, achieving another piece of history as he matched American great Chris Evert’s record. Federer is playing this tournament after three years of absence.When and where to watch?The action at the Roland Garros starts with Federer’s match slated to begin at 2 PM local time, 12 PM GMT and 5.30 PM IST.

Online viewers can stream the matches live on the Hotstar platform.Preview Roger Federer is two wins away from clinching his 100th career title. GLYN KIRK/AFP/Getty ImagesFederer has been in tremendous form throughout this year’s edition of the tournament. He is yet to drop a set in the competition. He defeated Leonardo Mayer 6-2, 6-3, 6-3 in the Round of 16 to march into the quarters. The three years’ absence from Roland Garros doesn’t seem to have affected the 2009 champion as he has been playing quite smoothly. After being doubtful about his own success before the begining of the tournament, he is now among the contenders for winning the title. Stan Wawrinka.Adam Pretty/Getty Images.On the other hand, Wawrinka has had his own problems. He went out of the game with a knee injury that threatened his career after 2017 Wimbledon. As a result, he slipped outside the top 250 and also suffered a first-round defeat at last year’s French Open. But he has made a comeback and is currently ranked 28th. Wawrinka had a tough time beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in his fourth round clash. The final score of the tough contest was 7-6, 5-7, 6-4, 3-6, 8-6.Federer is leading 22-3 in head-to-head between these two Swiss players. The 2009 champion also has beaten Wawrinka in their last six meetings. Interestingly, the latter is the last player who recorded a victory over his compatriot at this Grand Slam, in the 2015 edition. The victory came in straight sets and eventually led to Wawrinka winning the French Open title.Global TV listingsFrance: France TV SportUSA: NBCUnited Kingdom: iTVAustralia: Fox SportsCanada: TSNSpain: EurosportJapan: WowowChina: CCTVlast_img read more

Indian TrIcolour through the minds eye

first_imgThe Indian Tricolour is one of the most beautiful flags in the world. Each colour including that of Ashoka Chakra holds meaning and significance. But there are many people (Visually impaired) who aren’t fortunate enough to witness and appreciate this pretty sight. They are deprived of the joy of fluttering colours.To give such visually challenged children an idea of the national flag, MP Birla Cement has crafted a “Flag Without Colours”. Made of cement, this flag brings out the colours and symbol of the flag through braille markings. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThis Republic Day, the braille flag, cast in concrete, was carried to several blind schools across the country, allowing its students to partake in the celebrations of the 70th Anniversary of our Republic. Seva Mandir School, Indore, is one of the institutions that received the “Flag with(out) Colours”. The other schools included Government Blind School, Kadam Kuan, Patna, Burdwan Blind Academy, Burdwan, St. Michael Blind School, Ranchi, All India Confederation of the Blind, Delhi, Institution of Blind, Delhi, and Raj Andhay Vidhyalaya, Allahabad. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSandip Ranjan Ghose, Executive President, M P Birla Cement, said, “On this 70th Republic Day, the values embedded in our flag are relevant more than before. This is a small endeavour on our part to make the celebrations of Republic Day more inclusive and carry the message of national flag to a wider cross-section of our young citizens”. “Cement is usually seen as a very inanimate material and its role in nation building is not easily recognised. The philosophy of the MP Birla Group is ‘Heart and Strength’. This is an expression of that core value, which guides our organisation. In the course of the year, we plan to take braille flag to many more institutions like Seva Mandir as our homage to the nation,” he further added. “Republic Day emphasises human rights and honours the freedom that national flag represents. This was just a humble attempt of including those who have been deprived of sight in a celebration that is rightfully theirs. I can only hope that the ‘Readable Flag’ will become as common a sight as the tricolour someday”, said Sujoy Roy, Executive Creative Director, Ogilvy Kolkata.last_img read more
