TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company, has secured a contract from connectivity and data center solutions provider, MainOne, to extend its active submarine cable system into West Africa’s francophone region with two additional branches connecting Senegal (Dakar) and Cote D’Ivoire (Abidjan). These new branches will connect to MainOne’s 7,000km cable system, which extends from Portugal to Nigeria, and will inject new technology that upgrades the system to a potential capacity of 10TBps by November 2019 when the subsea system becomes operational.With this development, MainOne will have landing points in five markets – Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Cote D’Ivoire and Portugal, in addition to Cameroon. A cluster of francophone countries in West Africa that are experiencing an increased demand for advanced telecom services including Burkina Faso, Mali, and Mauritania will also benefit from these extensions into Cote D’Ivoire and Senegal.“MainOne continues to lead the current digital transformation of the region by ushering in affordable connectivity to drive economic development. Our objective remains focused on bridging the digital divide between West Africa and the rest of the world. We have, and will continue to, invest significantly in projects to accelerate broadband access to help local businesses address the challenges they face procuring capacity at competitive rates. This extension of our subsea cable to Senegal and Cote D’Ivoire will further open up their international bandwidth markets, drive down costs and ultimately boost the economic and commercial development of the region,” said Kazeem Oladepo, MainOne’s regional executive for West Africa.“These MainOne enhancements bring two additional connectivity options to this rapidly growing region,” said Debbie Brask, vice president, project management of TE SubCom. “MainOne has also selected SubCom’s industry leading WSS ROADM technology to achieve dynamic capacity management in fulfilling the region’s burgeoning demand.”The new branches will be equipped with TE SubCom’s WSS ROADM technology that allows MainOne and its partners to match the capacity in each branch to the market need, thus optimizing cable utilization. SubCom will light the new branches with Ciena’s transmission equipment, which enables this flexibility and higher capacity. It is also an industry first for the deployment of undersea spectrum-sharing in Africa.The MainOne Submarine Cable System links West Africa with Europe, bringing ultra-fast broadband in the region. It runs from Seixal in Portugal to Lagos in Nigeria. The system first went live in July 2010, becoming the first privately-owned subsea cable to bring open-access broadband capacity in West Africa.
Senior Counsel, Anthony Astaphan.Senior Counsel Anthony Astaphan, one of the counsels on the legal team representing Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit says “enough is enough” regarding the onslaught of allegations made against him in recent times regarding sale of Dominica’s passports.At a press conference on Friday, Mr Astaphan told the media that the prime minister had not sought legal action in the past against several issues naming the “bin bobol” and “ownership of villas” scandals, as the prime minister regards these issues as “the new scavenging of politics” and did not wish to take legal redress as other prime ministers in the region have done.However, Mr. Astaphan explained that the allegations made by Dr. Thomson Fontaine via the internet and radio that the British issued an advisory on Dominican passports and the Royal Family boycotting Dominica as part of its Jubilee celebrations was the “straw that broke the camel’s back”.“The straw that broke the camel’s back was Thomson Fontaine’s deliberate manufacturing of evidence that there was the British advisory on Dominican passports which turned out to be completely and absolutely false. The sensational lie that the Royal Family had boycotted or snubbed Dominica because Dominica was not part of its Jubilee itinerary, when we had gotten the explanation from authoritative source that is, that Dominica as a republic is not part of the British realm and had not invited the Royal Family and there are in fact no significant British investments here.”He explained further that the recent postings alleging that a known terrorist is the holder of a Dominican passport “crossed the line”.“It was enough particularly when we began to see these postings of passports and profiteers of shame and Dawood using Dominica’s passports and certain articles written by Jeremy St. Clair, Thomson Fontaine then some guy from Bangladesh or India being posted in the international and regional media on the world wide web, we began to realize that there was something fundamentally wrong with that, so enough is enough”, Astaphan said.Mr. Astaphan highlighted their reasoning for naming Q95FM Radio as a party to the lawsuit.“We have decided that as a matter of policy to join the owners of Q95FM in this case because the time has come for us to make the question of the responsibility of the radio programs a landmark issue for the Courts to decide.”He also explained the legal team’s reasoning for not including Weekly Blitz as a party to the lawsuit.“Weekly Blitz is not Dominican, Weekly Blitz is a marginal fringe anti-Islamic publication in Bangladesh, he’s apologized to us, he says he was going to send me material to show why he did it and he has sent me material and we are looking at it and all that I’m saying is that my position is consistent. All that I am saying is I told you so, you guys went on a campaign to destroy the reputation of the country based on Weekly Blitz and it backfired.”According to Mr. Astaphan this was not merely an attack on Prime Minister Skerrit but an attack on the country, attack on citizens with Dominican passports and an attack on the national security of Dominica.Dominica Vibes News Share LocalNews Enough is enough says legal counsel for PM Skerrit by: – December 30, 2011 Sharing is caring!

A USC student was found dead at approximately 5 p.m. on Thursday at the Gamma Epsilon Omega fraternity house, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Though the individual’s name will not be released until the next of kin have been notified, LAPD said that he is believed to have been a member of the fraternity. LAPD and the USC Department of Public Safety are conducting an ongoing investigation and have not yet confirmed the cause of death. Paramedics were already on the scene when LAPD and DPS officers arrived and found the student unresponsive. Captain William Hayes of the LAPD Robbery-Homicide Division said that the death is currently being investigated as a possible suicide, and officers do not believe hazing was involved.Hayes said residents of the fraternity house became concerned because the student had not been seen since 2 a.m., and when they went to check his room, they discovered his body. Additionally, DPS Chief John Thomas said that the information gathered so far indicates that the student’s death was not related to academic pressures. USC Student Affairs and Student Counseling Services arrived on the scene later in the evening to provide residents of the house with emotional support. The Gamma Epsilon Omega fraternity, which is unique to USC, is the first Asian-interest fraternity in Southern California. It was established in 1963 and was the first minority organization to have a house on the Row.

It appears like Julius Randle will test free agency.The Pelicans big man is expected to decline his $9 million player option this offseason, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources. They are also expected to select Duke star Zion Williamson with the No. 1 pick on June 20.Williamson has drawn comparisons to Randle, who is taller by two inches at 6-9 but is also more than 30 lbs lighter. It’s unclear how New Orleans will proceed, as it will have two undersized, athletic, left-handed forwards on the roster if they keep both.Nevertheless, New Orleans has plenty of options.
