Deutsche Telekom T-Home IPTV Service

Informitv reports that the new T-Home service will be available to customers in Germany, France and Spain in the second half of 2006. �Our objective is to offer customers a convenient �Plug and Play� solution that can be set up and operated both quickly and easily,� said Kai-Uwe Ricke, chairman of Deutsche Telekom. �The Cisco solution helps us address that need.�

The delivery network is based on Cisco IP NGN or Next Generation Network systems. The IP set-top boxes from Cisco Systems will support the Microsoft TV IPTV Edition software platform, in the largest planned European deployment of the platform to date.

Based on an X 300T Media Receiver from KiSS Technology, the Danish company which Cisco acquired in September 2005, it will include a personal video recorder with an 80 gigabyte hard disk capable of storing up to 70 hours of programming. It will also feature dual digital terrestrial television tuner, and can be controlled remotely over the internet. The device is high-definition television compatible and provides an HDMI digital video interface as well as SCART connectors.

Earlier in the year, Cisco announced the acquisition of Scientific Atlanta, further enhancing its position in the emerging market for internet protocol television and switched video services.

Industrial Cloud Computing Apps Gain Momentum

In the manufacturing industry, cloud computing can help leaders improve their production efficiency by providing them with real-time data about their operations. This has gained the attention of the C-suite. Total forecast Industrial Cloud platform revenue in manufacturing will surpass $300 billion by 2033 with a CAGR of 22.57 percent, driven by solution providers enhancing platform interoperability while expanding partner ecosystems for application development. ABI Research found the cloud computing manufacturing market will grow over the next decade due to the adoption of new architectural frameworks that enhance data extraction and interoperability for manufacturers looking to maximize utility from their data. Industrial Cloud Computing Market Development "Historically, manufacturers have built out their infrastructure to include expensive data housing in the form of on-premises servers. The large initial upfront cost of purchasing, setting up, and maintaining these servers is

Demand for Quantum Computing as a Service

The enterprise demand for quantum computing is still in its early stages, growing slowly. As the technology becomes more usable, we may see demand evolve beyond scientific applications. The global quantum computing market is forecast to grow from $1.1 billion in 2022 to $7.6 billion in 2027, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). That's a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48.1 percent. The forecast includes base Quantum Computing as a Service, as well as enabling and adjacent Quantum Computing as a Service. However, this updated forecast is considerably lower than IDC's previous quantum computing forecast, which was published in 2021, due to lower demand globally. Quantum Computing Market Development In the interim, customer spend for quantum computing has been negatively impacted by several factors, including: slower than expected advances in quantum hardware development, which have delayed potential return on inve
