Miscellaneous News   Miscellaneous News : New transmission technique, faster Internet
   posted by Ferry on 14-Feb-2004 18:10:12 (1504 reads)
Department of nanoPhotonics from Universidad Politécnica of Valencia (Spain) has invented a new transmission technique that enables transmission speeds 1000 times faster than ADSL over cable and 100 faster than current Wi-Fi technology over radio.

Among other things, this will allow the broadcasting of high-quality video in real-time.

A quick babelfish translation followed by some corrections by myself to make it sound like English:

The Polytechnic University of Valencia has created a strategy based on optical fiber that will allow speeds to 1 Gbps and greater with secure access to the Network.

The Center of nanoFotónica Technology of the Polytechnic University of Valencia has invented a new technique of transmission by optical fiber that allows a safe connection to the Internet, through radio and cable, at a speed 1,000 times faster than that of ADSL and 100 times faster for networks with wireless technology Wi-Fi.

With this speed, of 1 Gbps, it will be possible to transmit images of great quality in real time. One of the fields that can benefit from this advance is Tele-Medicine, being possible to participate from mobile units with a remote connection.

In addition, films will be able to be streamed from the Internet in real time with much superior quality than the present one. With new techniques of encoding it will also be possible to increase the number of users that can be connected to the network based on each station, without having to increase the number of connection points.

According to the director of the Center of nanoFotónica Technology of the UPV, the university professor Javier Martí, the researchers of this center invented this new technique that "will provide a greater speed of connection, as well as more security and flexibility of access to the Network". In addition, this method "allows a permanent connection to the Internet, by cable or radio and avoids disconnection or loss of data in caused by a drop in the Network", adds Martí.

In the case of a break in the Network, an automatic transfer takes place without it affecting the user, a connection that was taking place via cable transforms to one via radio or vise versa.

The system's security aspect allows It to be used even in extremely sensitive situations, therefor offering a greater mobility and flexibility of access to Internet.

The European project that will carry out the demonstration of this new technique is called "Gandalf", financed 50 percent by the European Commission with two million Euros for a period of two years.

Apologies for any mis-translation

By the time a new technology reaches the average consumer it is actually quite dated. Remember that ADSL was invented a long while before it was actually possible for the average consumer to have it in their homes. Eventually ADSL will become to us what dialup was then. We'll probably have to wait another decade or so before the telecom corporations have squeezed all the money they can out of ADSL and we can have the luxury of this technology in our homes.

Image the situation in Australia where a government owned telecomunications company installed optic fibres into just about every telephone exchange years before anyone else was close to doing it -- then it was privatisied.

Since then nothing has been done, literally nothing, the few cable TV companies laid a little coax where it was most profitable, the newly privatisied Telcom used first very expensive ISDN and then inaquate ADSL (petering out a few hundered metres from the exchange).

And in charge of the whole abortion is an american execuative from Ma Bell.

Now the government has signed a secret deal (euphmistically called a free trade agreement) which includes the final sale of the telcom and the intrusion of American telcoms here -- in the next decade we will be communicating with smoke signals.
