Lokesh's Big Achievement: Google X In Vizag!


Google fine-tuned this FSOC technology while working on Project Loon, X's ambitious plan to place a network of balloons at the edge of space to bring the internet to out-of-the-way areas.

This is claimed to be first of its kind association in the world to provide wireless internet connection at a higher speed of upto 20Gbps and to a distance of upto 20 km.

X will initially supply AP with two thousand FSOC Links. And because there's no cable, this means there's none of the time, cost, and hassle involved in digging trenches or stringing cable along poles.

Hayek: Rebuffing Weinstein led to nightmare
Hayek claimed that Weinstein would often threaten to shut down production of the movie if she didn't play up her sex appeal. She wrote: "It was clear to me he would never let me finish this movie without him having his fantasy one way or another.

The firm is working with a telecom operator in Indian state Andhra Pradesh, home to over 50 million people, to use Free Space Optical Communications (FSOC), a technology that uses beams of light to deliver high-speed, high-capacity connectivity over long distances. FSOC boxes can simply be placed kilometers apart on roofs or towers, with the signal beamed directly between the boxes to easily traverse common obstacles like rivers, roads and railways.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has already been signed between Government of Andhra Pradesh and Google X in San Francisco, USA.

Lokesh, son of Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, tweeted that X will be the state's innovation partner, deploy its resources and team to help achieve the goal of Digital Andhra. A team from Alphabet's X was earlier running a pilot on FSOC technology in Andhra Pradesh. Less than 20% of residents now have access to broadband connectivity, so the state government has committed to connecting 12 million households and thousands of government organizations and businesses by 2019 - an initiative called AP Fiber Grid.

Oil prices recover on big USA crude stock drawdown, pipeline shutdown supports
For 2018 the IEA also reiterated its prior forecast for growth of 1.3 million barrels a day (1.4%) to a total of 98.9 million. So, on our current outlook 2018 may not necessarily be a happy New Year for those who would like to see a tighter market.

Google X, a division owned by Alphabet and that deals in experimental technologies, is aiming to bring high-speed internet to parts of Andhra Pradesh using special boxes that beam light.

The idea for initiative came after Google X used FSOC to deliver information for its Loon connectivity project which uses hot air balloons to deliver internet connectivity in remote areas.
