Animated Map of the World's Undersea Internet Cables
http://www.businessinsider.com/animated-map-global-fiber-optic-internet-cables-2015-9 ---- 99% of international data is transmitted by wires at the bottom of the ocean called submarine communications cables. In total, they are hundreds of thousands of miles long and can be as deep as Everest Is tall. The cables are installed by special boats called cable-layers. It’s more than a matter of dropping wires with anvils attached to them—the cables must generally be run across flat surfaces of the ocean floor, and care is taken to avoid coral reefs, sunken ships, fish beds, and other ecological habitats and general obstructions. The diameter of a shallow water cable is about the same as a soda can, while deep water cables are much thinner—about the size of a Magic Marker. The size difference is related to simple vulnerability—there’s not much going on 8,000 feet below sea level; consequently, there’s less need for galvanized shielding wire. Cables located at shallow depths are buried beneath the ocean floor using high pressure water jets. Though per-mile prices for installation change depending on total length and destination, running a cable across the ocean invariably costs hundreds of millions of dollars. Sharks are trying to eat the Internet. There’s disagreement as to why, exactly, sharks like gnawing on submarine communications cables. Maybe it has something to do with electromagnetic fields. Maybe they’re just curious. Maybe they’re trying to disrupt our communications infrastructure before mounting a land-based assault. (Haha) The point remains that sharks are chewing on the Internet, and sometimes damage it. In response, companies such as Google are shielding their cables in shark-proof wire wrappers. In 1854, installation began on the first transatlantic telegraph cable, which connected Newfoundland and Ireland. Four years later the first transmission was sent, reading: “Laws, Whitehouse received five minutes signal. Coil signals too weak to relay. Try drive slow and regular. I have put intermediate pulley. Reply by coils.” This is, admittedly, not very inspiring. (“Whitehouse” referred to Wildman Whitehouse, the chief electrician of the Atlantic Telegraph Company, who we’ve discussed previously.) For historical context: During those four years of cable construction, Charles Dickens was still writing novels; Walt Whitman published Leaves of Grass; a small settlement called Dallas was formally incorporated in Texas; and Abraham Lincoln, candidate for the U.S. Senate, gave his “House Divided” speech. As of 2014, there are 285 communications cables at the bottom of the ocean, and 22 of them are not yet in use. These are called “dark cables.” (Once they’re switched on, they’re said to be “lit.”) Submarine cables have a life expectancy of 25 years, during which time they are considered economically viable from a capacity standpoint. Over the last decade, however, global data consumption has exploded. In 2013, Internet traffic was 5 gigabytes per capita; this number is expected to reach 14 gigabytes per capita by 2018. Such an increase would obviously pose a capacity problem and require more frequent cable upgrades. However, new techniques in phase modulation and improvements in submarine line terminal equipment (SLTE) have boosted capacity in some places by as much as 8000%. The wires we have are more than ready for the traffic to come.

Freebox V6 - TV Connectée
Découvrez la nouvelle Freebox V6 La v6 sera compatible fibre et DSL, avec la possibilité de passer automatiquement de l'un à l'autre. Côté routeur, quatre ports Ethernet Gigabit seront de la partie. Un contrôleur WiFi 802.11n est également de la partie. La téléphonie DECT reste logiquement intégrée. En façade, un petit afficheur doublé d'une interface de navigation tactile permettent d'accéder aux réglages généraux. Le boitier réseau dispose également de petites enceintes permettant dr'écouter la radio, ou de la musique. Alors que le stockage est traditionnellement proposé dans le boitier qui prend place sous la TV, Free a pris le parti de l'intégrer dans le boitier modem. Ici, 250 Go, avec des fonctionnalités de type NAS et donc, un partage réseau des contenus qui y sont sauvegardés. Un client de téléchargement, compatible avec le progressive download, ainsi qu'un contrôle parental de l'accès à Internet sont intégrés au micrologiciel de la box. Côté télévision, Xavier NIel annonce l'intégration d'un processeur x86, fourni par Intel, ce qui signifie que le boitier destiné au salon est en théorie capable de faire fonctionner des applications issues des univers PC ou Mac. Iliad embrasse donc le concept de smart TV développé par Intel avec ses processeurs Atom dédié à l'univers de l'électronique grand public. En l'occurrence, il s'agira ici d'un Atom 4100, cadencé à 1,2 GHz : pas un unique processeur x86 donc, mais une puce tout en un de type SoC, munie notamment d'un contrôleur graphique. « Notre équipement est quatre fois plus puissant que le dernier boitier sorti sur le marché », clame fièrement Xavier Niel. Ce boitier sera piloté par une télécommande conçue en interne, faisant appel à une liaison radio. Sa principale caractéristique, issue de l'univers mobile, c'est l'intégration d'un gyroscope et d'accéléromètres devant favoriser la naissance de nouvelles interactions. Un navigateur Web, complet, est également intégré. La navigation passe alors par un petit clavier virtuel. Clavier et souris pourront toutefois être utilisés facilement, promet Niel. Iliad n'y va pas par quatre chemins : l'idée aurait tout simplement été de reproduire la simplicité - et l'efficacité - du modèle App Store développé par Apple sur la box. Le Store d'applications de la Freebox va donc considérablement s'enrichir, avec une offre de logiciels gratuits ou payants, dont des titres tels que le jeu Asphalt 5 de Gameloft. Pour jouer, on n'aura donc qu'à connecter une manette à sa box et l'on profitera bien sûr de possibilités multijoueurs. Gameloft s'engage à fournir cinq titres sur le Store Freebox dès le lancement de la v6, dont son fameux FPS NOVA. Les développeurs auront quant à eux accès à un SDK dédié. Pour l'instant, le modèle économique, et notamment la part prélevée par Free sur les ventes d'application, n'ont pas été précisés. Une manette de jeu sera d'ailleurs fournie avec la box, tout comme une paire de boitiers Freeplugs (courant porteur en ligne), pré-associés à la box pour que le paramétrage soit trivial. En attendant 2012 et le lancement de son offre mobile, Iliad annonce l'intégration des appels vers les lignes mobiles dans sa formule à 29,99 euros par mois. Un one more thing qui suscite un certain enthousiasme dans la salle. Pas mécontent de son effet, Xavier Niel invite l'assistance à contacter son opérateur mobile pour réduire son forfait et profiter, à la place, de la Freebox pour passer ses appels. Pour les abonnés existants, Free indique que la migration sera facturée 119,99 euros (montant répliqué sur la prochaine facture de l'abonné). Un tarif dégressif sera toutefois appliqué, tenant compte de l'ancienneté, avec une réduction de 30 euros par tranche de douze mois acquise. Autrement dit, un abonné qui n'a pas renouvelé sa box depuis deux ans sera facturé 59,99 euros pour passer à la v6.
