Localscope v1.7 Improves Discovery of Places With Tighter Foursquare Integrations & A New In-App Browser

By Lisa Scott

With the new update, Localscope integrates with the APIv2 of Foursquare to provide users with richer results while searching for locations and also integrates with the Foursquare iPhone App. The newly added in-app browser further enables users to explore the detailed web view of a location from within Localscope. Additionally Localscope is now localized to 6 more languages including Arabic, Traditional Chinese, Dutch, Greek, Russian and Swedish.

Localscope now seamlessly integrates with the new APIv2 of Foursquare, the popular location-based social network. Now, while searching the Foursquare source in Localscope, users are presented with richer results, including phone numbers for the locations as available. Swiping a result allows users to quickly call the place or add them to the Address Book from the detail view. The integration with the Foursquare app for iPhone allows users to quickly switch from the details of a location in Localscope to its details in the Foursquare app. Once in the Foursquare app, user can check out tips, recommendations, mayorships and deals at the location or simply check-in to the venue.

The newly added in-app browser is a great way to explore detailed information from the web about a search result found in Localscope without navigating out of the app. Tapping on the 'View more details' button for a result in Google, Bing, Foursquare, Twitter or Wikimapia, launches the in-app browser with the web view for it. No more switching between Localscope and Safari!

Localscope v1.7 has been translated in 6 new languages including Arabic, Traditional Chinese, Dutch, Greek, Russian and Swedish. With the new additions to the localizations, Localscope now totals to supporting 14 major languages covering the Americas and major parts of Europe and Asia.

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.
