I was interested in learning more about VPN and what it entailed. Especially after our teacher told us to look into downloading it onto our own computer at home. Through Wikipedia, it gave a lot of info about what VPN is about and it does seem like a smart thing to add to your computer through UTEP's VPN for better protection at home.

In this document, twisted wire (copper) and fiber optics are being compared to recognize the advantages and disadvantages for each.

Speed, transmission and reliability cover fiber optics as the best telecommunications channels but they do recognize that it is more expensive than twisted wire.

Telecommunication refers to the primarily human-to-human communication facilitated by the global telephone system. The differences between these two streams are mainly due to historical reasons. Telecommunication is increasingly relying on digital computer technology, and data communication is relying more than ever on telecommunication networks.

Johna Johnson expresses the benefits of the wireless enterprise network for small businesses. Ms Johnson has a unique bird’s eye view as president of Nemertes Research, which analyzed the growing wireless network phenomenon. With a new generation of young, tech savvy employees entering the workforce, it makes sense to look at wireless technologies, since the “Y-gen” grew up wireless, and the lowered cost of implementing such enterprise networks. Yes, it is actually more cost effective for small businesses to go wireless versus the traditional LAN or WAN connections.

A router is a device that sends forward data packages along networks. For the most part, it is connected to two networks and may always be located at gateways. It was interesting to see, through this website, that routers may do very little filtering, and decide on their own which “route” is best for transferring information.

So it is nothuing but some cyber space where your data goes to and is available whenever you need it. This article explains that and recommends a system to use since ofcourse some software is not as compatible as others.

For example, I know about one provider in the United States that is offering, at this time, the services of internet with 150 mbps (Download) an 35 mbps (upload). It is Verizon Wireless, and, of course, it is a little expensive. Its prices is between 190 and 200 USD plus taxes, but, it is AWESOME!!! :)

Overall, I agree with the expected outcome of a wider broadband implementation. However, I think our country isn’t as behind as Kelly says we are. It is mentioned that nearly $11billion dollars would be dedicated to this investment. However, I think enough Americans already subscribe to internet services one way or another. It may just be another waste of tax payer’s money in my opinion.

THe structure of the Acess Network: this is a very theral process that requires many steps and time Subscriber demand and traffic forecasting is the next step in the process then the website goes into great deal explaning the planning and access networks. The last subcategory discussed is the new technologies in the access networks, which disscusses the new ideas and future plans they have for such system.

Surprising to me was that even though there is increasing use of and demand for people in the telecommunications field, job growth is actually expected to decline by nine percent over the next decade. This reduction in demand for employees can be credited to the fact that one person can do the work of many in this particular field because of the high level of automation.

Now recreational traffic is intermingling with business-critical applications on the Internet, requiring WAN managers to get a clearer understanding of what sites users are accessing and the danger these sites pose.

The router is a key element in network communication. The router takes information and send by a modem and transfer it to the computer.

Title: Metcalfe's Law and Social Media: Size Does Matter
Date: 11/05/12
Time: 11:45:28 PM

Comments

A blog from Christopher Penn, an MBA Graduate from Boston University and the founder and executive of two marketing companies, explains Metcalfe's Law in simple terms. He defines it as a law that states that the "value of a network is proportional to the square of the number of connected users to the network." In other words, the more users the better. Penn explains that Metcalfe's Law was written for hardware and it assumes that nodes are directly connected. Recursion, the process of repeating items in a self similar way, occurs less often when the network is small because there are fewer nodes to repeat back a network update. Penn also goes on to explain that simply having a network is not enough, because that network can be without a value. For a network to be efficient and useful, it is essential that it has good content. However, good content is not enough. The size and power of a network contributes to the success.

A multiplexer is a communications processor that allows a single communications channel to carry simultaneous data transmissions from many terminals. Thus, a single communications line can be shared by several terminals. They talk about a bridge is a communications processor that connects two similar LANs, that is, LANs based on the same network standards or protocols. A router is a communications processor that connects LANs to networks based on different protocols. A hub is a port switching communications processor.

Telecommunications controllers worldwide are becoming increasingly stored-program oriented. Electromechanical and electronic wired logic controllers lack the flexibility, maintainability, and (ultimately) the economy of stored program processors. While similar to commercial computers, most stored program telecommunications processors have features unique either in nature or degree of application. There also exists a remarkable variety of overall architectural features which are useful in telecommunications applications, and a similar variety of administrations and manufacturers willing to espouse them. Pertinent stored program processor architectural features are discussed as a dass, then extant and proposed processors are described and placed in perspective, Finally, likely future trends are discussed.

elecommunications is a general term for a vast array of technologies that send information over distances. Mobile phones, land lines, satellite phones and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) are all telephony technologies -- just one field of telecommunications. Radio, television and networks are a few more examples of telecommunication.

Stallite telecommunication is the most mature of space application. Starting 50 years ago with the launch of Telstar in 1962, it has continued to grow ever since then. At first satallite performance was very limited, to compensate very large ground stations with dish antennas more than 20 meters in diameter were required to establish links with them.

Telecommunications, or telecom, is the transmission of signals over long distances. Early telecommunications transmissions used analog signals, which were transferred over copper wires. Today, telephone and cable companies still use these same lines, though most transmissions are now digital. For this reason, most new telecommunications wiring is done with cables that are optimized for digital communication, such as fiber-optic cables and digital phone lines. Since both analog and digital communications are based on electrical signals, transmitted data is received almost instantaneously, regardless of the distance. This allows people to quickly communicate with others across the street or across the globe.

It was so interesting learn about telecomunication network, which is a collection of nodes and links that is capable of carrying audio, visual, and data communications. While the term was once used to refer only to the collection of switches and wiring used by telephone service providers to provide audio connectivity to residential and business customers, it is now understood to include Internet, microwave, and wireless equipment as well as the more traditional forms of telephony.

network is a type of telecommunications network between data processing nodes for the purpose of data communications. It is a communications network in which the end points are computers.The interconnection of computers is accomplished with a variety of networking hardware. Two devices are said to be networked, when a process in one device is able to exchange information with a process in another device. Networks may be classified by various characteristics, such as the media used to transmit signals, the communications protocols used to organize network traffic, network scale, network topology, benefits, and organizational scope. The best known computer network is the Internet. Telecommunication is communication at a distance by technological means, particularly through electrical signals or electromagnetic waves. Early telecommunication technologies included visual signals, such as beacons, smoke signals, semaphore telegraphs, signal flags, and optical heliographs.[7] Other examples of pre-modern telecommunications include audio messages such as coded drumbeats, lung-blown horns, and loud whistles. Electrical and electromagnetic telecommunication technologies include telegraph, telephone, and teleprinter, networks, radio, microwave transmission, fiber optics, communications satellites and the Internet.

This site talks about the different types of telecommunications processors. starting with Modems. They convert the digital signals from a computer or transmission terminal at one end of a communications link into analog frequencies, which can be transmitted over ordinary telephone lines.Multiplexers. A multiplexer is a communications processor that allows a single communications channel to carry simultaneous data transmissions from many terminals. Thus, a single communications line can be shared by several terminals. They talk about a bridge is a communications processor that connects two similar LANs, that is, LANs based on the same network standards or protocols. A router is a communications processor that connects LANs to networks based on different protocols. A hub is a port switching communications processor.

I remember the old slow modems when people used dial up so I wanted to go a little deeper into the history of the modem. This site accomplished what I hoped it would. The first modems were created in the 50's when AT&T held a monopoly on the telecommunications market. It was called a digital subset and transferred at 110 bps. Acoustic coupling was an interestin aspect of early modems that I didn't know about. The article goes through voice and smart modems all the way to the cable modems we use today. Really good article.

A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a method used to add security and privacy to private and public networks, like WiFi Hotspots and the Internet. VPNs are most often used by corporations to protect sensitive data. However, using a personal VPN is increasingly becoming more popular as more interactions that were previously face-to-face transition to the Internet.

Many individuals want to upgrade their internet speed using fiber optic technology. The problem is that not many cities have the broadband network build within their city. In effort to please every individual that wants to upgrade to fiber optics, Google is working on building a wider and bigger broadband network that features fiber technology. To make this easier, Google is asking for the cooperation of cities. They say that by doing these three steps, they would be able to be work faster and deliver the fiber optic technology to the public. I think is a great accomplishment that we are upgrading to faster internet speeds, being that today’s internet is already fast.

As our technological advances improve over time, the way we communicate becomes faster and easier. Fiber optic cable has allowed improving our telecommunications in various ways. First of all, fiber optic allows for telecommunication to be less expensive, more reliable, and is lightweight. I believe that this innovation will revolutionize the way we communicate with each other because it will strengthen the signal we have on our cell phones, which will allow less complaints to each cell phone provider. Also, it will enforce our military operations by having a more stabilize way of communicating with individuals overseas. There are many other ways that I believe fiber optics can do for our society, and most of all, our telecommunications.

The music and film industry have been hit the hardest when it comes to peer to peer file sharing. Abbreviated as P2P, this form of file sharing has been the culprit behind many declining music and album sales in conjunction with many pirating concerns in both film and music. Researchers are having a difficult time untangling the mess this file sharing system has caused with such recent events such as the shutting down of many websites infamously known for taking part in this illegal conundrum. As more legislation passes to protect music and film artists, internet users will continue to find alternative methods to continue this illegal practice.

This web site, describes what VPN is and clearly explains in detail what does each letter stands for and how it work and through what type of medium. First it clearly states that VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and that is usually constructed by using the internet to access a private network, as the name says, such as a company's internal network. However, these network use special codes to help secure the internal information of those companies. The web site gives examples of why people aquire a VPN service when they have users that can access any type of network. For example, schools , they can restrict the websites which the students access using their wifi. Another example is the wifi access, if a company of an individual has wifi they need VPN service so that it is secure and not everyone can get access to their wifi or internal records.

Telecommunication is communication at a distance by technological means, particularly through electrical signals or electromagnetic waves. Due to the many different technologies involved, the word is often used in a plural form, as telecommunications. Early telecommunication technologies included visual signals, such as beacons, smoke signals, semaphore telegraphs, signal flags, and optical heliographs. Other examples of pre-modern telecommunications include audio messages such as coded drumbeats, lung-blown horns, and loud whistles. Electrical and electromagnetic telecommunication technologies include telegraph, telephone, and teleprinter, networks, radio, microwave transmission, fiber optics, communications satellites and the Internet.

I wanted to know a little more about what exactly what thin clients were from Ch. 6 and looked it up on "technopedia". The definition says that it is a network computer that have a small amount of locally stored programs that only needs to be operated on one server. By using one server the thin clients are less money than a rich client or fat client. Thin clients are also called slim or lean clients and deals with more sophisticated software that is stored on the server, while the opposite is true for fat or rich clients. Overall my understanding is more clear on what actually this term indicates.

Title: "How Motorola came to dominate emergency telecommunications"
Date: 04/01/14
Time: 11:05:43 PM

Comments

Motorola has served as the most used telecommunications device brand for many years. It's success has been attributed to officials keeping up the same contracts with the service providers. Officials have been accused of not using tax payer dollars wisely for only using Motorola contracts that are expensive. Because Motorola is the most used company, prices have been on the rise. A couple problems have been found with Motorola: high prices and device incompatibility with non-Motorola devices. Motorola has combated accusations of its incompatibility with innovative devices that can sustain being submerged in water or dropped without breaking. Even when emergency telecommunication devices are purchased for a lower price from competitors, somehow, money flows back to Motorola.

A typical satellite link involves the transmission or uplinking of a signal from an Earth station to a satellite. The satellite then receives and amplifies the signal and retransmits it back to Earth, where it is received and reamplified by Earth stations and terminals

Metcalfe's law was first presented in 1980 but was formulated till 1993. It states that the value of a network is equal to the set number of compatible devices squared. Increasing the number of uses and devices into the world wide web increases the value and the number of connections that be obtained. This law is popular and often applied to social media sites where increasing friends creates more value to the network itslef, where only one user would render the network useless.
