Standards Are In

A monotheistic body or group that manages the development and growth of IP communications might stifle innovation. But unless we want to see progress devolve into islands of technology and fractured groups, we do need to embrace some standardization.

Finally! IEEE Ratifies 802.11n Super Wi-Fi

The IEEE said late Friday that its standards board has ratified the 802.11n Wi-Fi standard, which offers throughput speeds of 50mbps. The final spec is interoperable with draft certification versions of the standard, which is critical for vendors. The 802.11n standard has been around for a while – years, really – without being ratified by […]

OK, Heres the Scoop on WiMAX

By Peter Radizeski, RAD-INFO It happened again today. People asking when WiMax will be rolled out to solve all of their problems. I had to explain what WiMax is. So here it is: 802.11 is a family of specs (a, b, g, n, s) for wireless LAN from the IEEE standards body. While Wi-Fi and […]

Phihongs 30W Midspan Powers WiMAX Access Points

The 30W one-port midspan from Phihong USA is now being implemented into high-power applications that implement IEEEs 802.11N standard. Designated the POE30U Series, the midspan is designed to power wireless and WiMAX access points that require up to 24 watts of power. IEEE 802.11N, the new broadband wireless standard, has driven up access point power […]

Samsung BCS Releases IP-Centric WLAN Solution

Samsung Business Communication Systems (BCS) has released the latest addition to its OfficeServ suite, the IP-centric WLAN Solution for wireless convergence. The IP-centric WLAN Solution comprises an access point, which supports both IEEE 802.11a and IEEE 802.11b/g wireless technologies; Samsung’s WIP-5000M Wireless IP handsets and a media gateway interface card. This solution allows SMBs to […]

RAD Delivers End-to-End Ethernet OAM

RAD Data Communications Inc. says it has the worlds first-to-market pre-standard implementation of ITU Y.1731 and IEEE 802.1ag, which allow for end-to-end Ethernet operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM). Y.1731 and 802.1ag define end-to-end OAM capabilities intrinsic to Ethernet technology, enabling service providers to monitor the Ethernet service the customer receives. The IEEEs 802.3ah OAM, in […]
