IoT is one of those buzz words that is currently making steady progress along the ‘hype cycle’. Where exactly it is, be it on the upward curve of the ‘innovation trigger’ or at the top of the ‘peak of inflated expectations’ is arguable. What’s clear though is that it’s a long way from maturity as a concept but also that … Continued

There is an ever-increasing demand for more functionality and complexity to be added to wireless access points. To address these requirements, systems designers must rely on hardware implemented features like dedicated programmable classification, hardware-based queuing and QoS with inter-layer optimization; these provide superior performance versus software-based implementations and also provide tight latency bounds in serving low power clients. In this … Continued

Policy frameworks usually can vary broadly from one system vendor to the next, from a no-rules approach to performing deep packet inspection-based classification. However, all policies need to be based on Mobility policies per user ID Applications like SIP, H.323, Skype, MSN Messenger AP and station location Port’s subnet SSID of the wireless network It is also essential that the … Continued

The data bandwidth requirements of Wi-Fi devices have been increasing tenfold every five years while the number of Wi-Fi devices inside the home is doubling every year. This means the data processing requirement of wireless access points is growing at a compounded rate. With the advent of devices with 802.11ac connectivity, the trend is expected to continue at a much … Continued

When we originally introduced the Ensigma Series4 RPU family, we mainly focused on the support for different connectivity standards such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. However, there were also several mentions of the Ensigma’s capability to support broadcast TV and radio standards. In this two part article, I would like to reveal some details about a next generation broadcast TV standard … Continued
