In 2013, he took Mavenir Systems, a Richardson-based mobile network software company, to the public trading markets in an IPO after several successful venture capital fundraising rounds. Two years later, the company was bought up by a Canadian firm for $560 million and Kohli went on to his next venture.

in 2016, when Ottawa-based Mitel Networks Corp. unloaded the company to a New York private equity investor for $200 million less than the original purchase price, it was merged with Kohli’s startup and another firm and he came back to lead the combined operation.

Now called Mavenir, the rebranded tech firm is once again ready for the public markets after a year that saw it bring in $427 million in revenue. Mavenir filed documents this week with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for a Nasdaq-listed IPO.

Elon Musk: SpaceX’s Starlink broadband public beta ready to go after latest launch

By iwano@_84

After several delays, SpaceX has finally launched its 12th Starlink Mission, which brings its internet-beaming satellite constellation to just under the 800 it needs to deliver moderate coverage in North America.  

With this latest launch at Tuesday, 7:29 am EDT from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, SpaceX has now launched 775 Linux-powered Starlink satellites. But, via CBS News, only 728 Starlink satellites remain in orbit, according to astronomer Jonathan McDowell’s latest Space Report.  

As noted by Space.com, before Tuesday’s successful Starlink launch, SpaceX had scrubbed four attempted launches due to weather and other issues. SpaceX integration and test engineer Siva Bharadvaj said Tuesday was “a happy end to Scrub-tober”.

More importantly for broadband-starved potential customers in the US, this latest batch of 60 Starlink satellites clears the way for a public beta in northern US and possibly southern Canada. 

“Once these satellites reach their target position, we will be

Get ready for the iPhone 12. Here are 3 ways to prepare your phone now

By iwano@_84

It’s October, and Apple’s entering uncharted territory without having announced a new iPhone by now. Typically Apple announces new iPhone models in September, but this year, things are different. We now expect Apple to announce the iPhone 12 on Oct. 13 or Oct. 14 (here’s why). The delay isn’t really a surprise, as Apple has said this year’s release date is going to be a few weeks later than usual.

Current rumors point to several new iPhone 12 models, maybe even an iPhone 12 Mini, with a new design (a dark blue color?), 5G connectivity and improved performance. 

With this year’s launch inching closer, it’s not too early to

Developers, get ready for the collision of DevOps and data analytics

By iwano@_84

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the blending of data analytics and DevOps meaning developers, data scientists, and product managers will need to work more closely together than ever before.

Dynamic Developer

, host and TechRepublic editor-in-chief Bill Detwiler speaks with Michael O’Connell Ph.D., chief analytics officer at TIBCO Software about how data analytics is merging with DevOps, the data science work his company has done helping organizations respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, and what that works tells them about the future of software development and analytics. The following is a transcript of the interview, edited for readability.

Bill Detwiler (00:16): All right. So before we get started talking about data analytics and DevOps, and how the

Quantum computing meets cloud computing: D-Wave says its 5,000 qubit system is ready for business

By iwano@_84

Quantum computing company D-Wave has doubled the scale of its cloud-based computing platform and said it is already solving real-world problems in minutes that would take traditional computers a whole day of number crunching.

D-Wave, through a service called Leap, grants developers access to a cloud-based quantum processor that can be used to test and trial applications in real-time. 

In the previous iteration of Leap, the quantum processor was 2,000-qubits strong, with each qubit capable of connecting to six other qubits. D-Wave has more than doubled the performance of the technology: Advantage’s quantum processor – which is available through the Leap platform – boasts 5,000 qubits, and each qubit can connect to 15 others. In other words, programmers will have access to a much larger graph to build their quantum applications.

As part of Leap, developers can also use a feature called the hybrid solver service (HSS), which combines both

The 5 Biggest Technology Trends In 2021 Everyone Must Get Ready For Now

By iwano@_84

It might seem strange to be making predictions about 2021, when it’s far from certain how the remainder of 2020 is going to play out. No-one foresaw the world-changing events of this year, but one thing is clear: tech has been affected just as much as every other part of our lives.

Another thing that is clear is that today’s most important tech trends will play a big part in helping us cope with and adapt to the many challenges facing us. From the shift to working from home to new rules about how we meet and interact in public spaces, tech trends will be the driving force in managing the change.

In many ways, Covid-19 will act as a catalyst for a whole
