For poorer children in rural areas, it’ a tough gig and you would be very lucky just to receive any money! What I find to be a nice gesture is the willingness of young adult Vietnamese to gather clothes, school supplies and lucky money for these kids. Traveling up into the countryside to deliver these gifts reflects on the good character of the adults and some part of the cultural aspect of caring for those worse off even in a nation where life is tough anyway. … [Read more...] about How lucky is your Tet money?

Tay Ninh (VNA) - A new two-line cable car system has opened in the southern province of Tay Ninh, taking visitors to the top of Ba Den (Black Lady) Mountain and Ba Den Pagoda. Developed by Sun Group, the cable car system, which is part of the Ba Den Mountain Sun World Tourism Area project, was designed by Austrian company Doppelmayr at an estimated cost of 2 trillion VND (86.5 million USD) for the first phase. With a designed speed of eight metres per second, it can transport 4,400 passengers per hour. Each cabin can accommodate 10 people. The two-way cable car line 1 extends from the foot of the mountain to the peak of Ba Den Mountain. It travels 986 metres above sea level with a length of 1,847 metres. With its 113 cabins, the cable car takes only eight minutes to reach the mountain’s summit, compared to a dangerous four-hour trek.

In 2020 the industry will move from a small group of early-movers who have commercialised initial 5G networks to a global community in which multiple operators in every continent and in many countries will have commercial 5G networks. The early adopters will add scale and those who launch in 2020 will quickly resolve issues in their initial deployments. Second-generation devices and base stations will be added to the market, and the standards will have another new release in 3GPP’s Rel-16. Key technical challenges for the industry in 2020 will be: ensuring performance in mid-band (3.5-5GHz) frequencies, moving mmWave to mobility, transition planning to a full Stand-Alone (SA) 5G network, and resolving architectural decomposition and standards for centralised RAN and Mobile-Edge computing (MEC). The “Internet of Things” will become the “Interaction of Things” IoT will rapidly move into the mainstream with widening commercial acceptance, increasing … [Read more...] about 5G-related advanced applications to boom in 2020
