Professional Installer's Guide to IP Networking, Part 3

In this segment we will focus on Ethernet Switches-the backbone of your local network. When selecting a switch or a combination of switches for your network, there are several issues to consider.

Professional Installer's Guide to IP Networking, Part 2

In this article we will focus on Routers, a key element that can make or break your installation.

Professional Installer's Guide to IP Networking, Part I

This is the first in a 4 part series. In this segment we will discuss the basic components of an IP network and the functions of those components in the first segment. In segments 2-4, we will take a closer look at Routers, Switches and Wireless Networking.

Using PoE to Simplify Home Automation, AV and Security Installations

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) supported devices are becoming more common in nearly every facet of home and business networking.

Luxul Networking Review

Like most people, in the past I've bought consumer grade from CISCO (formerly LinkSys), Netgear, D-Link, etc. I've grown increasingly dissatisfied with these as time goes by. I've run across Luxul networking products in several pro-installations so when I got the chance to try them for myself, I jumped at the chance.

How to Use Existing Powerlines to Extend Your Home Network and Stream Media Uninterrupted

This article is an overview of how wired home plugs can provide an option and may in fact may be the best choice when adding a network/broadband connection to a home or small office

Demystifying Wi-Fi Roaming: What You Need to Know to Avoid Costly Mistakes

Building a Wi-Fi network that delivers uninterrupted coverage to mobile or "roaming" devices can be a significant challenge-especially as coverage requirements increase. This challenge becomes considerably more manageable when the issue and the deployment alternatives are well understood

Using WiPNET to Connect the Home With the Existing COAX Network

WiPNET at its simplest is Ethernet over coax. This means we can provide high speed Internet access to every location in a home with little more than the replacement of existing coax cable wall plates with WiPNET ports.

Home Automation Protocols, Networks and the Smart Grid

We have a long way to go before AV, lighting, HVAC, and appliances come together within a home automation network that will work with smart meters and the utilities' back office system to communicate both ways flawlessly, controlling how and when energy is wisely consumed.  Strides are being made in each area and we will see more systems coming together for the perfect balance of energy consumption and energy savings. 

Interview - Home Automation Networks

The Home Area Network has different meanings depending on the context. In the context of Home Automation, it is the wireless connectivity to enable security and convenience in the home and includes wireless home security, lighting control, HVAC control, and home entertainment control. In the context of Smart Energy, the HAN is the network of devices which communicate wirelessly with the smart meter primarily using  the ZigBee standard and includes devices like programmable communicating thermostats, appliances, in-home power usage displays, and load-control/demand-response devices. The primary purpose of the Smart Energy HAN is to make it easier to reduce power and help utilities better manage the power grid.

MOCA + BOXEE = Home Networked Entertainment

As consumers are equipping their homes with multiple HD TVs and OTT services such as Boxee and VUDU, the need for increased bandwidth and a reliable connection becomes a top priority. The overwhelming broadband traffic produced by these content-heavy devices and services raise concerns of how home networks are going to handle the growing number of connected devices and multimedia services. The MoCA Ethernet-to-Coax adapter is a single-unit solution that enhances the entertainment value of all connected electronics in the network and the overall viewing experience of the consumer.

The first Thai-developed digital embedded network is here

According to MISOLIMA administrative Director for Asia, Mrs. Phongsri FIKO, it took time to launch the next generation of the popular embedded network DOLLx8 due to the complexity in embedded software developments, but it's now tested and ready to be introduced in March of this year. New DOLLx8 devices will begin with sales in Asia and then in the United States and Canada later on this month and finally Europe expected by first week of April 2011 together with Australia and New Zealand.

DOLLx8 version 3.18 is faster and better than ever before, running a faster processor than the previous DOLLx8 version. And as expected, it comes with more functions, which also includes a complete alarm system aimed for GSM or Internet. Although the new DOLLx8 is packed with new functions and user configurations compared with its predecessor, the cost of main module is still the same as before.
