Telecom and Networking

The Bell System Technical Journal (1922-1983) : Free Texts

https://archive.org/details/bstj-archives The scientific discoveries and technological innovations produced by Bell System research and engineering were critical not only to the evolution of global telecommunications but, more widely, they had a considerable impact on the technological base of the global economy. The invention of the transistor at Bell labs in 1947, and subsequent advances in related

Wi-Fi Gets More Secure: Everything You Need to Know About WPA3 – IEEE Spectrum

https://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/telecom/security/everything-you-need-to-know-about-wpa3 The biggest Wi-Fi security update in 14 years was recently unveiled by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3) security certificate protocol provides some much-needed updates to the WPA2 protocol introduced in 2004. The Wi-Fi Alliance also announced two additional, separate from WPA3 certification, protocols: The Enhanced Open and Easy Connect

Meet Martti, the Finnish Robocar That Uses 5G – IEEE Spectrum

https://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/telecom/wireless/full-capabilities-of-5g-networks-in-autonomous-vehicles-explored How will 5G work with self-driving cars? A new 5G-enabled robot car in Finland offers some clues. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and mobile giant Nokia have joined forces to determine how 5G networks can transmit information to and from vehicles while on the road. They are testing the capabilities of 5G network

Experts Disagree on Top Applications for 5G – IEEE Spectrum

https://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/telecom/wireless/optimisim-and-skepticism-meet-headtohead-at-5g-forum When it comes to the rollout of 5G networks, carriers and equipment suppliers are all in. On the other hand, in 5G’s current development cycle, at least on academic expert is taking a more skeptical position. It seems that the design philosophy of 5G has quite successfully achieved “green” (efficient) and “soft” (agile) aims

The merger of networking, storage, RAM, and cache | EDN

https://www.edn.com/electronics-blogs/eye-on-standards/4460689/The-merger-of-networking–storage–RAM–and-cache Since the dawn of civilization, the computing bottleneck has been the tawdry I/O relationship between disk drives and RAM (random access memory). The emergence of SSDs (solid state drives) loosened but didn’t alter this I/O bottleneck. With fast networks computers can move data onto their disks from remote systems as fast as they can

WPA3 promises more secure WiFi networking

In January, at CES 2018, Wi-Fi Alliance announced that the WPA2 encryption used to protect Wi-Fi (WI-FI) since 2004 will get a new, more secure WPA3. Now standardization is complete and new devices that support wpa3 technology can be certified. The new protocol provides a number of additional protections for Wi-Fi enabled devices. WPA3 networks
