Wireless power supply

Wireless power supply

Physics promises wireless power. ‘a simple copper antenna designed to have long-lived resonance could transfer energy to a laptop with its own antenna resonating at the same frequency. The computer would be truly wireless. Any energy not diverted into a gadget or appliance is simply reabsorbed. The systems that the team have described would be able to transfer energy over three to five metres.

Cisco acquires Navini Networks for 330 million in pakistan

Cisco has acquired Navini Networks, which are a pioneer and leader in the Mobile WiMAX 802.16e-2005 broadband wireless industry.
Cisco acquired the company for approximately $330 million, excluding options.
The acquisition of Navini will help expand Cisco’s “Connected Life” vision to deliver any service to any device over any network. Cisco hardware, software, and service offerings are used to create the Internet solutions that make networks possible-providing easy access to information anywhere, at any time, and the acquisition is one firm step towards that commitment.
Cisco’s WiMAX technologies want to provide broadband connection to consumers and businesses in developing countries. This will result in many more internet users who can use economically high speed internet. And with Pakistan’s economy growing to aggressively compete in the international markets, redundant wireless online accessibility isn’t the only demand of the market.
Dr Aamir Matin, General Manager Cisco Systems in Pakistan, says “the market needs secure and feature-rich connectivity. WiMAX networks will enable communication devices such as the computer and cellular phones, to have their own form of identity via IP-based broadband which will allow a lot more information and data to be processed and transferred through these connections. Our companies are already competing in the international markets – our infrastructure has to match the business readiness.”

 

Work on IT Tower to be started in few weeks

 City Nazim Syed Mustafa Kamal has said that construction work on IT Tower will begin in few weeks. This, he said, would be a unique building in Pakistan housing 10,000 call centers and generating over 40,000 jobs for the youth. A sum of $200 million is being invested in this project.

Out of 10,000 call centers, 6,000 have been booked even before the start of construction work on the building.

He expressed these views while addressing a seminar of Inbox Company at a local hotel on Wednesday. Inbox has been hired by city government for the computerisation of Abbasi Shaheed Hospital.

The city Nazim said that, in today’s world, public problems could only be solved with the use of information technology that which is why information technology was being introduced in all departments of the city government. This, he said, has not only brought with it a considerable improvement in the performance of city government but also reduced the rate of corruption to a great extent. It has also helped establish a closer link between citizens and local bodies, he added.

He said that the city government has arranged information technology training for youths at a cost of Rs120 million, which would help provide respectable jobs to educated youths.

The Nazim said that the city government has introduced a unique public complaints system, besides establishing a command and control system for traffic in the city. Traffic at signal-free corridors will be monitored through digital cameras and this system would have the capacity to be extended to other areas of the city under a gradual process, he added.

He said that the city government has used information technology to break up the land mafia and now all records pertaining to land management were being digitised speedily. “With this, not only the record of actual land owners would be secured but the land mafia would also not be able to occupy any piece of land by forging documents,” he added.

He said that, in today’s world, solution of public problems in a huge city like Karachi could not be possible without using computer technology.

The Nazim further said that Abbasi Shaheed Hospital was almost at the verge of closure, when the hospital medicines were being sold to private medical stores. However, with the use of modern technology, this process has been successfully stopped and, after the rehabilitation of its major departments, this hospital has now become the number one government hospital in Karachi, he added.

Irish cos keen to invest in Pakistan’s IT industry

ISLAMABAD: After getting attracted with the rich potential of outsourcing services of Pakistan’s Information Technology (IT) industry, several Irish companies have shown interest to enter agreements with local IT companies.

“At least six major Pakistani companies Softech Systems, MSoft, Efrotech, Esolpk, Invaterra and Alp Business Service Management have made major contacts with the Irish IT companies and are in process of signing up projects,” the spokesman of Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB) said in a statement here on Monday.

The delegation met with the officials of South Dublin Chamber of Commerce and the Irish state development agency ‘Enterprise Ireland’.

Wired World in Criminal Clutches

Historically, there have been significant instances of hacks of government and other Web sites around the world.

Muzaffarabad, Dec 1: The official website of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) Government has been hacked. The hackers have removed all the data placed on it.

The site (www.ajk.gov.pk) developed by the Information Technology Board now offers “cool and funny jokes” to be surfed through a search engine instead of information about the area, history, traditions, government and institutions POK.

The Dawn quoted an official source as saying that the alleged hacking had taken place three days ago, but the IT Board appeared to be unaware about it.

In 1997, the servers of the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) were hacked by ‘g-force’, a Pakistan-based hacker group. The group defaced the main servers, and copied the master database that was transferred to Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
