As per the global market research company International Data Corporation (IDC), China will outperform the UnitedStates in 2024 in the China vs. USA race to become the world’s largest Internet of Things (IoT) market. At the cusp of another technological revolution, the current fact remains. A few new technologies such as 5 G, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D printing, autonomous systems, cloud computing, and blockchain are driving the revolution, all driven by data. It’s interesting that, under the influence of Trump, the US went the other direction to China. In August, Trump signed a $716 billion defence strategy bill as well as tightening legislation to curb Chinese participation in US innovation. China’s investment in management platforms is vital to its ability to oversee and provide infrastructure on a global scale. The Industrial IoT (IIoT) is the location where the money is at the end of the day. The Americas rules the world in IoT ventures covering: Connected Industries (45 percent), Connected Building (53 percent), Connected Vehicle (54 percent), Smart Energy (42 percent), Connected Health (55 percent), Smart SupplyChain (49 percent), and Smart Retail Chain (49 percent), as per a January 2018 IoT Analytics study (53 percent ). According to the report’s numbers, China’s IoT spending is expected to hit around US$300 billion by 2024, with the compound annual growth rate staying at 13 percent over the next five years.
On Friday, Bharti Global and UK government-led OneWeb announced the launch of 36 communications satellites and said it aims to provide high-speed internet by mid-2022 from its satellite constellation in India. OneWeb’s re-launch of satellite launches comes within weeks after the billionaire Sunil Bharti Mittal-run Bharti Group, along with the British government, took over as the new owners of the bankrupt broadband satellite communications business. On Friday, the broadband satellite communications company Low Earth Orbit (LEO) launched 36 satellites from a Soyuz launch vehicle, which started in Russia from the Vostochny Cosmodrome. A company release said that this brings the total in-orbit constellation to 110 satellites, part of the 648 LEO satellite fleet of OneWeb that will provide high-speed, low-latency global connectivity. The launch puts OneWeb on track to deliver customers global services from late 2021, beginning with global service in 2022 for the United Kingdom, Alaska, Northern Europe, Greenland, Iceland, the Arctic Seas, and Canada. It added that OneWeb has won global priority spectrum rights and has now completed four launches successfully and aims to provide high-speed Internet from OneWeb satellites in India by mid-2022. “Today’s launch is one of many steps we have taken to operationalize one of the world’s first LEO constellations, which clearly demonstrates that we are on our way to achieving our mission,” said Sunil Bharti Mittal, founder and chairman of Bharti Enterprises.
In talks with telecom companies Airtel and Jio, Google is reportedly introducing high-speed Internet and telecommunications access using light beams. The technology is part of Project Taara, which uses light to relay information as a very thin, invisible beam through the air at super high speedsit is like fibre, but without cables, as per Project X, a Google company. Instead of radio waves between transmitters and receivers connected to servers mounted on buildings and structures, the technology sends light beams. Compared to less than one gigabyte a second that many customers get now, a source familiar with the matter told ET Telecom, the pace could be as high as 20 gigabytes a second. “The source told the publication, “This would be a game-changer as it will link one to remote areas, provide internet access through buildings without cables and . the pressure on towers. As stated, Project Taara was piloted in Andhra Pradesh in India and Kenya in Africa. Project X from Google noted that their team is exploring the potential of wireless optical communication technologies with telcos, ISPs and governments around the world to greatly accelerate the implementation of the extensive high-throughput networks required to sustain the web’s future. In areas that are difficult to link using fibre cables, the system is successful. These include sites located around forests, water bodies, railways, or land with high real estate costs,”The system is effective in areas that are difficult to connect using fibre cables. These include sites located around forests, water bodies, railway tracks, or land with highreal estate costs,” In order to function easily with current networks and ecosystems, it is built on open standards.
