1. New Apple Watch may use ceramic fibre and unlock with fingerprint
Foreign media has reported that according to information found in a patent document, the new Apple watch body will be replaced with ceramic fibre. This new material is a lot lighter, is fire resistant, electromagnetically transparent, and can also withstand high temperatures. This material is commonly used in aerospace equipment, atomic engineering and other similar fields, as well as the metallurgy, petroleum and chemical industries. It is widely recognized that working with this new material is cost-effective, and more affordable than using ceramic or precious metals.
Apple explains the reasoning behind its choice of ceramic fibre, pointing to the fact that it will both increase the Apple Watch’s durability and reduce its weight, without hindering network connectivity efficiency. Rumor also has it that in the future Apple will use this material in iPhones.
- Huawei unveils intelligent OptiXstar ONT series featuring 10G PON, eAI
Today Huawei officially released the industry’s first ONT series, the OptiXstar. These products offer innovative 10G PON, embedded AI (eAI) Wi-Fi 6 acceleration, and meshed full-home Wi-Fi coverage to provide a premium experience for home users.
Huawei initiated the concept of ‘quality home Wi-Fi’, seeking to improve broadband user experience for individual households, and meet the development demands of network operators. Huawei identifies the 6 different aspects that make up a 6 star ‘quality home Wi-Fi’ experience, namely; gigabit access, ultra-low delays, full-home Wi-Fi coverage, safe and healthy internet, intelligent operation, and ultra-low power consumption.
OptiXstarl provides 2.5GE ports that support high-speed gigabit broadband. It features Huawei’s high-performance 10G PON network acceleration engine and super 160 MHz Wi-Fi 6. It can reach a gigabit coverage without equipping a router, and supports eAI and network slicing technology to lower the Wi-Fi latency to 10 milliseconds and realize zero lagging in video and gaming. At the same time, OptiXstarII adopts high gain antenna and Wi-Fi 6 optimization algorithms, making the Wi-Fi signal go further to build full-home Wi-Fi coverage. The signal can travel through one extra wall compared to other products in the industry. The self-assembly and iMaster NCE-FAN intelligent control system support long-distance operations, offering
