White-space Wireless Grows, and more...

Putting Wireless to the Test
Putting Wireless to the TestOnce again, the wireless communications market is driving growth in other sectors. This time it's the wireless test equipment market, which generated $3.1 billion in revenue last year and is expected to exceed $5.8 billion in 2017. These test and measurement tools include signal generators, spectrum and network analyzers, and telecom/datacom test equipment. And, as 3G use is on the rise, there is growing need for 3G-compatible test equipment as well as service and experience analysis tools for testing mobile data usage.

Multi-function Reader
Multi-function ReaderThis new handheld RFID reader/mobile computer uses encryption and authentication functions to read/write tag IDs and data blocks and to protect data. Tag orientation does not affect read capability as the antenna can read tags in any direction — tags that can easily shift during transport and handling operations. The company claims the device is well suited to tracking assets in industrial as well as healthcare settings.
Putting Metal to Good Use
Putting Metal to Good UseA new RFID tag developed by North Dakota State University has figured out a way to alleviate the fact that metal objects interfere with RFID tag antenna readings. The new tag uses the metal object as the antenna. A material in the tag's construction is electrically permeable, allowing RF energy to pass through in either direction.

White-space Wireless Spreads
White-space Wireless SpreadsWilmington, NC is one of the first cities in America to use a city-wide broadband technology that uses the frequencies of empty UHF TV channels. The same technology can connect rural homes to broadband. But, while being dubbed "Super Wi-Fi," the owners of the Wi-Fi trademark say calling it that is anything but super. However, a real Super Wi-Fi is expected soon: 802.11ac, or very high throughput (VHT). This will bring higher data rates and gadgets with true Super Wi-Fi are expected to debut this year.
App Ends Need for Hotel TV Remotes
App Ends Need for Hotel TV RemotesNo need to touch germ-laden hotel TV remotes anymore. A new, complimentary app turns your smartphone into a remote control. In addition to complimentary channels, pay-per-view, and on-demand options, the app provides local information about the city's restaurants and attractions. Directions around town are also available. To date, 2,000 hotels can accept the app.

Securing the Cloud
Securing the CloudCorporations often fear that cloud-based applications lack data visibility and are concerned that there is an inability to track usage. A new security solution is expected to put those fears to rest as it allows enterprises to allow only authorized services and ensures that malicious content that could attack the network is not being downloaded. Communication between the company and the SaaS provider is monitored at the network's edge.
Say Goodbye to Cables
Say Goodbye to CablesMicrosoft is experimenting with the possibility that wireless technology could replace network cables. The research team is using high frequency radio band to transfer large volumes of data between servers; antennas on top of server racks send and receive the data. Traffic speed increased by 45%. But some question the performance, reliability, and security of a wireless data network.
