Google photos enhances service with new release


Google Photos has released enhancements to its service that will help users compile their photos into an album after an event or trip.

Starting today, Google Photos will suggest a new album for you, curated with just your best shots and also add maps to show how far you travelled and location pins to remember where you went.

The new feature allows text captions to be added to the album and turns on collaboration to let others add their own photos. Or if you want to create one yourself, any existing album can now be customised with maps, location pins, and text.

Google photos says the new album experience is rolling out today on Android, iOS and the web.

•    One home for all your photos and videos - Now have access to unlimited, high-quality storage for free, which is backed up in the cloud meaning you can access your images from anywhere

•    Search quickly and easily - Pictures are automatically organised by people, places, and things. So if you are looking for something specific like a dog, just type “dog” into the search box and see all your photos that have dogs

•    Bring your moments to life - Easy-to-use editing tools means you can enhance your photos by adjusting color and filters in the app. You can also make collages, animations, movies, and stories, with a click of a button

•    Easily share and save what matters - Share a set of photos and videos or an entire album by simply creating a link which can be shared, opened and edited by whomever you want, however you want

•    Save what you want - Even if you didn’t take the photo, keep any images shared with you in a single tap.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
