Miguel Ponce de Leon, chief architect and researcher of Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG) wants to replace the internet with something better because it will be useless when 5G comes along. De Leon is a part of an EU-based research project called Pristine that aims to develop RINA (Recursive InterNetwork Architecture) a type of computer network architecture that will unify distributed computing and telecoms.
According to De Leon, the internet architecture that people and businesses use today with broadband, Wi-Fi and mobile is inefficient. Once 5G is deployed in the future, the internet architecture will be useless. RINA proposes a theory on how a communications network must be built. TSSG researchers have combined the theories of John Day, grandfather of the internet and Louis Pouzin, one of the creators of the original ARPANet.
If you think about present-day internet that was developed in the later part of 1960, mobility and security were not considered. De Leon and his team delved into the foundation of the internet and interviewed Louis Pouzin who shared an idea in the form of a diagram on how to move packets of data around a network. Louis Pouzin provided a lot of insights on different alternatives that can be used.
De Leon says that if you will look at how cloud data centres are put together through the use of virtual machines, you can see that it can seamlessly replace the current architecture of the internet. The current limitations of the internet can be seen when homes and offices experience congestion control when users are accessing games and apps. Sometimes, it is very difficult to connect to an app. All the proposals sound wonderful but the question is when will it happen?
One of the best technology tools introduced to the market is HR software in Thailand that assists HR professionals in the performance of their tasks and in managing huge amounts of employee data. The software is a great timesaver because the system can schedule performance evaluations and employee benefits with automatic notifications to remind human resources that certain actions have to be performed. If HR is not digitized, now is the best time to review the system.
When it comes to freshwater fish migration, the dorado catfish is considered to be the world title holder. It has to swim over 7,200 miles during its migration period. This incredible fish resides in the Amazon River and it is named dorado catfish because of its shimmering skin. The catfish can reach up to 6 feet long and its scientific name is Brachyplatystoma rousseauxii. It is suspected to belong in a family species of goliath catfish because of its great accomplishments when it comes to migration.
A team of scientists from all over the globe have recently confirmed this suspicion. The dorado catfish is now the record holder for having the longest fish migration in the world under the exclusive freshwater category. If one has to read the extraordinary life-cycle journey of the dorado, it will seem like a dream come true for adventurers because it has almost swum the entire width of the continent of South America.
The study started with four different species of goliath catfish that deposits their eggs in the western part of the Amazon. The dorado which is considered the long distance hero starts its journey as adults and pre-adults. Starting at the estuary in the Amazon River, it will begin trekking upriver until it reaches the spawning area located in and around the Ander Mountains. After the breeding fish have spawned, they do not come back to the nursery areas while the newborn catfish does. They have to complete the cycle by migrating thousands of kilometres going in the opposite direction.
It was discovered that the life-cycle migration of the dorado is around 11,600 kilometres or over 7,200 miles. The four species that were included in the studies are considered the most vital commercial species found in the country where they live but they are currently in danger because of development plans. There are many factors that affect these travellers including dams, mining operations and constant deforestation. With the help of the recent data, they hope that there will be a better conservation plan executed to preserve these extraordinary catfish.
