Exactly.

I'm sure Google execs learned from that.

I don't know about Millenials, but if you try hard enough, you will always be able to find people to become opposed to anything you want to do. You just need to beat the bushes and spend enough time and money to irritate them and get them involved in your business.

A contest is supposed to be a million dollar prize for the community which signs up the most new Amazon Prime memberships, or the best essay telling people how Amazon has improved your life.

The Myth of the Fallout from Huawei Ban

Just count how many vendors disappeared without Fallout.

Lucent. Siemens, Nortel, Motorola, Alcatel

The bigger the number before the G, the less the vendors are required.

Cisco is taking on Huawei globally and winning its share of deals, CEO Chuck Robbins says

Samsung wants 20% market share for network gear by 2020

The last thing we want to do is move our chip making to the Chinese thieving-rat mainland so they steal more of our heavily protected IP.

Trump's idea, actually China's idea, that we could sell soooo many more advanced IC chips to China if we relocated our heavily automated plants there - is a non-starter for anyone with intelligence, and that fortunately includes the management of our chip-making companies. If these bozos think that's going to fly we are truly as far from a trade deal with China as everyone close to the talks say.

We are concerned China’s reported offer to dramatically increase purchases of U.S. semiconductors would rearrange U.S. supply chains and artificially force them deeper into China,” said John Neuffer, president of the Semiconductor Industry Association.

Perhaps our greatest concern is this can act a distraction from addressing the fundamental issues at the heart of the dispute: China’s problematic trade practices related to intellectual property, forced tech transfer, and state subsidies.

Petere, a view of this phenomenal set of projections from Lightwave's Stephen Hardy:
-
The 2018 Cisco VNI for the mathematically challenged
November 27, 2018, Stephen Hardy [Ed. Director & Assoc. Publisher]



Cisco has released its 2018 Visual Networking Index (VNI). As usual, this year’s VNI reports stupefyingly large numbers related to the internet that tech company marketing departments everywhere will quote for the next 12 months.

The VNI is the only reason anyone without a math or science degree has ever encountered the prefixes exa- and zetta-. Most of us without the prerequisite schooling have no idea what these prefixes mean exactly. But we’re aware that they signify really big numbers. For the record, “exa-“ denotes 1018, or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000. “Zetta-“ is 1021, so you can just add three more zeroes to the exa- number. A zettabyte is bigger than an exabyte. But both are really too big to think about for many without the aid of some sort of mind-altering substance.

Elmat,

I can understand your snap impressions on this matter. You should be aware, however, that Google has been dropping billion dollar bombs up and down some of the more LIC-like neighborhoods within Manhattan, not Queens or Coney Island, and doing so in a relatively quiet manner sans any apparent narcissistic motivations.

They're doing business, is all, and have been doing so for about eighteen years.

Despite those facts, even Google's activities have been responsible for some level of neighborhood tensions, but without grandstanding. I dare suggest that an Amazon move onto the campus grounds, and surrounding environs, of LIC's LaGuardia Community College would not have taken many of these issues into account.

As a capitalistic leaning individual, who was once active in union affairs (about fifty years ago) and can still see reasons for their existence, today I'd love to see a fortune like the one being discussed here dropped into my 'hood, but only when an equitable balance exists between stakeholders - something I had not seen discussed very much relating to this deal, leastwise not prior to now.

Hi Frank,

This week we gave the European VNI reports to the EC, as they are heavily lobbied by mobiles.
The Cisco VNI for Mobile will be released Tuesday Feb 19, then merged into the annual report in the Fall. The Mobile data includes cellular and Wi-Fi, and fortifies our requests for more unlicensed spectrum. From the website you can get a slide for 5 year accuracy, which is about a 3 dB variation, not the 4.5 dB that SES/Intelsat claim (they claim Wi-Fi 5/6 GHz use will grow much more than anyone else's forecast ;-)

FCC 18-295 6 GHz unlicensed comments closed Friday, about 25 are posted and another 150+ comments will be posted Tuesday after the Monday federal holiday. Replies are due by March 18th. The fun has begun.

Yes, Petere. Thanks a bunch for posting info relating to those upcoming releases. I agree that the fun has begun.

There's lots of excitement all over the globe. Big bets have been, and continue to be made concerning optimal network designs and architectures. Also, my perusing the fiber front suggests to me that innovative solutions are on the rise, especially in the race to bring "5G" to the masses.

In some cases some regulatory views are changing, i.e., loosening up, about things like running high-capacity fiber routes within sewers, micro-trenches, streetcuts and within municipal waterworks, although much of then more adventurous activities are likely taking place in Europe and Asia.

Capacity Media magazine has been a good source of information concerning this subject, I've found, sometimes revealing that competition in the fiber route laying biz today is as fierce as it ever was.

There's almost 5 billion internet users plus 28 billion internet connected devices like surveillance cameras, for a total of 33 billion users. So f a zetabyte is roughly 50 billion hi-def films, a zetabyte is a little bit more than one hi-def film per internet user.

Quite enough room to grow for a while of that a zetabyte per second, assuming I have the calculations right.

It probably doesn't take that much bandwidth, but I'm amused we're going back to the old model of offloaded remote computing with slightly smarter than dumb terminals as phones.

Cisco VNI over the last five years under forecast the actual traffic by nearly 10%.

Wi-Fi traffic is ~free. Hard to put a limit on free.

SuperBowl 53 Internet traffic was 24 PB, a new record

techrepublic.com

Stephen Hardy should get more comfortable with traffic carried.

Hi Elroy,

For ECC SE45 we looked at household Wi-Fi transmit time during the busy hour in 2025.

Video compression results in 4k video by 30 fps becoming 2 GB per hour, so household Wi-Fi
transmissions are < 2% of time per 80 MHz channel.

The compression of the month club is keeping up.
