NodeScale Vectoring cancels noise
across an entire network node from 192 to 384 ports or more, meeting the
deployment requirements of the world's leading service providers. With Ikanos'
algorithms, compression and coding techniques, service providers can deliver
100 Mbps performance at the scale necessary to support their growing subscriber
bases via a cost-effective commercial silicon and software solution.
NodeScale Vectoring was designed from inception to address the need for delivering
100 Mbps performance across an entire service provider network. The complete
system includes NodeScale Vectoring compatible line cards, Vector Computation
Engines and G.vector-ready customer premises equipment. The system can be
deployed flexibly to increase the performance of existing VDSL nodes, as part
of ADSL network upgrades and in copper plants that previously served only plain
old telephone service (POTS). Since the same Ikanos chipset supports vectored
and non-vectored deployments, upgrades can occur on a line-by-line basis for a
pay-as-you-go vectored network deployment.
Ikanos' NodeScale Vectoring complies with the
International Telecommunication Union standards group (ITU-T) G.vector standard
(G.993.5), which provides for dynamic spectrum management level 3 (DSM-3)
through the use of advanced crosstalk cancellation techniques.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
