In a time when people are now in fear of touch, voice technology is getting the attention. Voice activated system in mobile devices such as Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google Assitant already had a stable growth of demands in the past years and the global pandemic could even more accelerate that.
Voice assistants are not only helpful in answering queries, responding to commands, and online shopping on our mobiles but could also be used to remote smart home and business apps, and in managed services providers. This is expected to rise as people now sought means to limit physical contact. When that happens, voice assistants can totally “wipe off” the need to touch surfaces on door handles, light switches, appliance remotes and other and devices.
There is already an increasing number of demands of voice-activated devices and apps before and, as the world hits coronavirus pandemic, the number of demands could grow exponentially if this will continue by the end of the year.
The Rise of GPON Fiber Optic Internet
As the need to higher bandwidth increases to function high-end technology, more and more businesses are seeking alternatives how to augment the bandwidth over long distances and GPON fiber internet connection in Philippines seems to be just the common right answer people are getting now.
A GPON network is capable of transmitting ethernet, TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) as well as ATM traffic. A GPON network consists of OLT (Optical Line Terminals), ONU (Optical Network Unit), and a splitter. The splitter will divide the signal when needed. The OLT takes in all of the optical signals in the form of beams of light from ONUs and will convert it to an electrical signal. Since it uses light technology, it adopts the characteristics of a light- fast and can travel over long distances. The transmission can reach up to 20 km starting from the central office running to the user. It’s “Gigabit” as it can transmit large data without signal degradation. It’s “passive” optical as uses light to convert it to electrical signal.
