"We are committed to giving our full industrial and space expertise to this mission," remarked Airbus' Tom Enders. "Intelsat has the world’s largest fleet of Ku Band geostationary satellites and our interoperability will enable pole-to-pole and urban canyon coverage with new services," said Intelsat.

06:47 EDTAKAMAkamai releases Q1 'State of the Internet' report
Akamai Technologies released its Q1 State of the Internet Report. Based on data gathered from the Akamai Intelligent Platform, the report provides insight into key global statistics such as connection speeds and broadband adoption across fixed and mobile networks, overall attack traffic, global 4K readiness, and IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 implementation. the first quarter of 2015, Akamai observed a 1.2% quarterly increase in the number of unique IPv4 addresses connecting to the Akamai Intelligent Platform, growing to over 812 million—about 10 million more than were seen in the fourth quarter of 2014. n the first quarter, average mobile connection speeds ranged from a high of 20.4 Mbps in the United Kingdom—a 27% increase over the fourth quarter—to a low of 1.3 Mbps in Vietnam. Average peak mobile connection speeds ranged from 149.3 Mbps in Australia to 8.2 Mbps in Indonesia. Denmark saw 98% of unique ip addresses from mobile providers connect to Akamai at speeds above 4 Mbps, followed by Sweden and Venezuela with 97% each. On the other end of the spectrum, four countries—Vietnam, Iran, Kazakhstan, and Bolivia—each had less than 1% of ip addresses connecting at those speeds. Based on traffic data collected by Ericsson, the global volume of mobile data traffic grew by 12% between the fourth quarter of 2014 and first quarter of 2015. Analysis of Akamai io data collected during the first quarter from a sample of requests to the Akamai Intelligent Platform indicates that for traffic from mobile devices on cellular networks, Apple Mobile Safari accounted for roughly 35% of requests, down slightly from 36% in the fourth quarter, while Android Webkit and Chrome for mobile accounted for 23% and 16% of requests, respectively—giving a total of 39% for the Android platform. For traffic from mobile devices across all networks, Apple Mobile Safari was responsible for close to 47% of requests, down from 48% last quarter, while Android Webkit and Chrome Mobile made up just over 25% and 17% of requests, respectively, for a total of 42%. ontinuing the trend seen in the fourth quarter of 2014, the number of unique IPv4 addresses worldwide connecting to Akamai grew by nearly 10 million in the first quarter. As noted in last quarter’s report, however, the company expects that the number of unique global IPv4 addresses seen by Akamai may level off or decline in the future as more carriers implement carrier-grade network address translation solutions in an effort to conserve limited IPv4 address space and as they increase support for and availability of native IPv6 connectivity for subscribers.

17:21 EDTQCOMSemiconductor Manufacturing, Qualcomm form joint venture to focus on 14nm tech
Earlier on Tuesday, Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMI), Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm Global Trading -- an affiliate of Qualcomm (QCOM) -- announced the formation of SMIC Advanced Technology Research & Development, an equity joint venture company. The joint venture company will focus on R&D towards next generation CMOS logic technology and an advanced integrated circuit development R&D platform. SMIC Advanced Technology R&D will be majority owned by SMIC, while Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm will be minority shareholders.

In the first phase, the joint venture will develop 14 nanometer CMOS technology for mass production, which will be based on imec's expertise. The project will be done at SMIC's production line. SMIC will have the rights to license the required intellectual property rights on the mass production technologies of advanced nodes developed by the joint venture company.
