Taxi fare comparison in Kolkata : Uber/Ola/TFS/Yellow Taxi


Just like Samsung and Apple, Indian luxury taxi giants - Ola and Uber are in legal fight. Though Uber is present in fewer cities compared to India-grown Ola, Uber has stronger presence in certain cities. As I used Uber in Kolkata and Bangalore, it seems to be the cheapest taxi in the metro.

In Bangalore Uber is rocking with its UberPool (similar to OlaShare, but you can book more than 1 seats for pool). However in Kolkata Ola has launched its super cheap taxi - Ola Micro.

[Press Release] Spirent and octoScope partner to deliver testing of Wi-Fi and wireless technologies in a repeatable RF environment

Spirent Landslide and octoScope enable real access point and real client device testing in a single testbed 

 Bangalore – March 07, 2016 – Spirent Communications, the leader in networks, network services and device testing, today, announced an agreement to deliver a complete Spirent Landslide Wi-Fi and octoScope system, supporting real access points and real client devices in the octoBox testbed.  The octoBox testbed supports coexistence of multiple wireless technologies such as LTE and 802.11ac Wave-2 including MU-MIMO, while providing a controllable real-life RF environment.  The octoBox testbed automates common wireless tests such as throughput vs. range, roaming and coexistence in a completely isolated environment under controlled conditions, with common real-life impairments such as interference, path loss and multipath.

The Landslide™ octoBox wireless testbed is a powerful integration of the world’s most sophisticated protocol level Wi-Fi and multi-UE traffic generator with a completely isolated and real-life RF environment.  By emulating thousands of UEs (User Equipment) and APs (Access Points) on the access side, Landslide provides extensive support for testing Wi-Fi offload gateways and controllers deployed in carrier and enterprise environments.  Integrated with the octoBox® STACK wireless testbed, the Landslide octoBox solution combines protocol layer with MIMO-OTA throughput testing. Wireless testing requires a controlled, automated, and repeatable RF environment and testbed building blocks that can challenge and analyze the complex wireless adaptation algorithms.
