Excerpt: This is a list of device bit rates, or physical layer information rates, net bit rates, useful bit rates, peak bit rates or digital bandwidth capacity, at which digital interfaces of computer peripheral equipment and network devices can communicate over various kinds of buses and networks. The distinction can be arbitrary between a bus, which is inside a box and usually relies on many parallel wires, and a communications network cable, which is external, between boxes and rarely relies on more than four wires. Many device interfaces or protocols (e.g. SATA, USB, SCSI, PCI and a few variants of Ethernet) are used both inside many-device boxes, such as a PC, and one-device-boxes, such as a hard drive enclosure. Accordingly, this page lists both the internal ribbon and external commu...
Description : Fiber Optics Vocabulary Development In 1979, the National Communications System published Technical InfonnationBulle tin TB 79-1, Vocabulary for Fiber Optics and Lightwave Communications, written by this author. Based on a draft prepared by this author, the National Communications System published Federal Standard FED-STD-1037, Glossary of Telecommunications Terms, in 1980 with no fiber optics tenns. In 1981, the first edition of this dictionary was published under the title Fiber Optics and Lightwave Communications Standard Dictionary. In 1982, the then National Bureau of Standards, now the National Institute of Standards and Technology, published NBS Handbook 140, Optical Waveguide Communications Glossary, which was also published by the General Services Admin istration as PB82-166257 under the same title. Also in 1982, Dynamic Systems, Inc. , Fiberoptic Sensor Technology Handbook, co-authored and edited by published the this author, with an extensive Fiberoptic Sensors Glossary. In 1989, the handbook was republished by Optical Technologies, Inc. It contained the same glossary. In 1984, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers published IEEE Standard 812-1984, Definitions of Terms Relating to Fiber Optics. In 1986, with the assistance of this author, the National Communications System published FED-STD-1037A, Glossary of Telecommunications Terms, with a few fiber optics tenns. In 1988, the Electronics Industries Association issued EIA-440A, Fiber Optic Terminology, based primarily on PB82-166257. The International Electrotechnical Commission then pub lished IEC 731, Optical Communications, Terms and Definitions. In 1989, the second edition of this dictionary was published.
Description : Radio broadcast engineers seeking to design and operate HD Radio(TM) transmission systems will benefit from the detailed exposition of the technology. The book lays out the entire structure of this digital transmission system. System equations are presented in a manner that is useful to those interested in them, while retaining a clear narrative for those who seek a general understanding of how the technology works. The book also presents a summary of the history of the technology and the NRSC-5 standard, as well as forward-looking information on emerging technologies and applications.
Description : These proceedings contain the papers selected for presentation at the 23rd Inter- tional Information Security Conference (SEC 2008), co-located with IFIP World Computer Congress (WCC 2008), September 8–10, 2008 in Milan, Italy. In - sponse to the call for papers, 143 papers were submitted to the conference. All - pers were evaluated on the basis of their signi?cance, novelty,and technical quality, and reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Reviewing was blind meaning that the authors were not told which committee members reviewed which papers. The program committee meeting was held electronically, holding - tensive discussion over a period of three weeks. Of the papers submitted, 42 full papers and 11 short papers were selected for presentation at the conference. A conference like this just does not happen; it depends on the volunteer efforts of a host of individuals. There is a long list of people who volunteered their time and energy to put together the conference and who deserve acknowledgment. We thank all members of the program committee and the external reviewers for their hard work in the paper evaluation. Due to the large number of submissions, p- gram committee members were required to complete their reviews in a short time frame. We are especially thankful to them for the commitment they showed with their active participation in the electronic discussion.
Description : Pick up where certification exams leave off. With this practical, in-depth guide to the entire network infrastructure, you’ll learn how to deal with real Cisco networks, rather than the hypothetical situations presented on exams like the CCNA. Network Warrior takes you step by step through the world of routers, switches, firewalls, and other technologies based on the author's extensive field experience. You'll find new content for MPLS, IPv6, VoIP, and wireless in this completely revised second edition, along with examples of Cisco Nexus 5000 and 7000 switches throughout. Topics include: An in-depth view of routers and routing Switching, using Cisco Catalyst and Nexus switches as examples SOHO VoIP and SOHO wireless access point design and configuration Introduction to IPv6 with configuration examples Telecom technologies in the data-networking world, including T1, DS3, frame relay, and MPLS Security, firewall theory, and configuration, as well as ACL and authentication Quality of Service (QoS), with an emphasis on low-latency queuing (LLQ) IP address allocation, Network Time Protocol (NTP), and device failures
Description : In the wake of the growing use of wireless communications, new types of security risks have evolved. Wireless Security covers the major topic of wireless communications with relevance both to organizations and private users. The technological background of these applications and protocols is laid out and presented in detail. Special emphasis is placed on the IEEE 802.11x-Standards that have been introduced for WLAN technology. Other technologies covered besides WLAN include: mobile phones, bluetooth and infrared. In each chapter a major part is devoted to security risks and provisions including encryption and authentication philosophies. Elaborate checklists have been provided to help IT administrators and security officers to achieve the maximum possible security in their installations, when using wireless technology. The book offers all necessary background information to this complex technological subject. It is at the same time a guideline and a working tool to implement a security strategy in organizations, assists in documenting the actual security status of existing installations, helps to avoid pitfalls, when operating in a wireless environment, and in configuring the necessary components.
Description : This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the exploitation process of shovel-truck systems using modelling, analysis and calculations following specific procedures: - analyzing the reliability and accessibility of shovels - discussing the functioning of a truck-repair shop system - reliability of trucks - existence of haulers reserve - repair shop service capability - possibility of occurrence of a queue of failed trucks - selection of structural truck system parameters - reliability of repair stands - constructing a set of unconditional efficiency measures for the system - outlining of system productivity measures The book also aimed to provide a penetrative analysis of 6 stochastic mechanisms, namely the: (1) Influence of reliability and accessibility of power shovels on system efficiency and decisions making (2) Influence of reliability of hauling machines on the number of repair stands and trucks needed (3) Influence of truck accessibility on the number of haulers and repair stands needed (4) Influence of reliability of repair stands on the number of failed trucks in a queue waiting for repair, on the number of trucks in work state and the number of repair stands needed (5) Influence of all these properties on the number of trucks at power shovels, system efficiency and productivity (6) Influence of implementation of type of priority in truck dispatching on system performance parameters. The book will be of interest to all mining engineers and civil engineers involved in use and development of shovel-truck systems, technology and planning. Moreover, it can be used as textbook for advanced courses in mine mechanization.
