Ethernet Standardization Seminar March 28, 2014


A seminar featuring two guest speakers, John D'Ambrosia,
Chief Ethernet Evangelist, CTO Office, Dell Inc. and David Law,
Distinguished Engineer, HP Networking will be held on Friday, March 28
from 10:15-11:45am in 112 Chambers. Our guests will discuss how
Networking has transfigured the world as we know it, and the networking
technology that, arguably, has had the largest impact is Ethernet.
However, it is not just the underlying technology of Ethernet that has driven its success, but the very fact that Ethernet has been standardized in an open manner by the IEEE 802.3. In today’s world, the industry has grown to demand the multi-source interoperability that have come to be expected from IEEE 802.3 standards, raising the bar of expectations that products must be meeting in order to be successful.

Advanced Optical Wireless Communication Systems

Hardback

 (ISBN-13: 9780521197878)

Optical wireless communications is a dynamic area of research and development. Combining fundamental theory with a broad overview, this book is an ideal reference for anyone working in the field, as well as a valuable guide for self-study. It begins by describing important issues in optical wireless theory, including coding and modulation techniques for optical wireless, wireless optical CDMA communication systems, equalization and Markov chains in cloud channels and optical MIMO systems, as well as explaining key issues in information theory for optical wireless channels. The next section describes unique channels that could be found in optical wireless applications, such as NLOS UV atmospheric scattering channels, underwater communication links and a combination of hybrid RF/optical wireless systems. The final section describes applications of optical wireless technology, such as quantum encryption, visible light communication, IR links and sensor networks, with step-by-step guidelines to help reduce design time and cost.

University Park, Pa. -- Penn State engineers have developed a new model for high-speed broadband transmissions

over U.S. overhead electric power lines and estimate that, at full data rate handling capacity, the lines can provide

bit rates that far exceed DSL or cable over similar spans.
