Home Wi-Fi Using Soft Access

The Segue™ SoftAP software creates an instant Wi-Fi network for home or office by simply installing it on an ordinary desktop, laptop or PDA computer equipped with a wireless client adapter, obviating the need for additional access points or complex configuration of access points and routers.

HomePlug AV: The consumer's network

HomePlug AV is an easy-to-use, easy-to-install, home networking technology that offers up to 200Mbps - enough bandwidth to cover all applications for the home, including multiple HDTV streams.

Innovative Service Provisioning

ProSyst's Environment for Service Provisioning and Activation (ESPA) supports operators, service and content providers in creating new business.

PLC - Memory Map

The memory is divided into three parts: program, word and discrete registers. The program (ladder logic) and word registers are usually stored in FLASH memory, while the discrete registers are stored in RAM memory.

Sound Solutions for Wireless Woes

Several new technologies will improve the range and speed of wireless networks, with a combined effect of 10,000 times the capacity of dialup 56 Kbps modems. With such advancements, networks that use radio signals for communication could replace most of the network cabling we now use. How real is this promise? When will we see it? And what will it mean for equipment manufacturers, service providers, homebuilders, and homeowners?

THE NETWORKED HOME

With predictions that there will be more than 28 million networked homes in the US by the end of 2008 (CyberAtlas), it is possible that traditional technology such as the VCR and the set-top box will gradually disappear and be replaced by all-encompassing home networks.

Thinking Inside the Box

Almost every SOHO and small business is limited by three things; time, money and space; and at the end of the day what they really want is an IT environment that allows them to do their work.

WWL - Wiring Without a License

Naturally the Integrators who have been out there for a few years kind of like the free-wheeling Old West environment of the Low Voltage Industry. Like the Old West this will not last forever, standards have risen to the surface. Not so new concepts will begin to take on larger meaning.

X10 Automated Outdoor Lighting

It took a while, but I figured a way to solve my needs to "smartly" control my outdoor lighting with X10 that I'd like to share. Basically, I found a way to get different modes of control for my unintelligent outdoor sensors based on time of day periods.

Connected by Design

What really differentiates the house is not all these interesting parts, but why real families would likely use them. And the fact that they are put together in a really attractive home-but one that is not "over the top". Real people could afford to enjoy living here.

Dealers Revenue to Reach $5.7B

Continued growth of new construction coupled with consumer demand for the latest entertainment systems is driving sales through installing dealers to grow 8% in 2003 over 2002. The results of Parks Associates latest survey of the channel indicate that next year looks even better with nearly 60% of dealers expecting their businesses to grow more than 10% in 2004.
