Thank you Fanny & Alex.

Iron

Thank you Fanny and Alex!

some wireless networking experiments at home

This was very informative.  Thank you Fanny and Alex.

Iron

I am primarily hardware, but I am beginning to work more with software on a day-to-day basis.  

Iron

Basically information on general, but also one area springs to mind that is fairly well isolated (no cell reception inside).  

Iron

I understand some of the theory behind these, but as far as the schemes themselves, I will definitely need some more time with these.  

Iron

What I would like to learn from this are some basic lessons on it, as well as the pitfalls from others who have more experience with this.  

Iron

I have not done a wireless network, and no plans to do one at this time, but I have been toying with the idea for awhile and would like to learn more about it.  

Iron

Good general overview. The Frequency Spectrum charts are helpful.


I have installed wireless networks -- looking at more for low level data collection.

Iron

I am Systems Engineer working on commerical avionics

Iron

I am fairly and  do not know nothing about the modulation schemes. I am sure after attending this lecture I will walk away with an abundant information

Iron

Hi everyone this is Kamran from Pakistan

 

Iron

Thanks. The Slides Are helpful

Iron

r&d hardware and software

Iron

The slides are very informative and brushed all the wireless topics I have studied in my bachelors degree.... 

Iron

Do not use NFC in business.

 

Iron

Best ways to implementing the newest changes in Wireless Networking.

Iron

I just listened the first lecture that I missed. Good presentation. Thanks a lot.

Iron

In answer to your question about each of us, Alex, I'm an electrical engineer, but focus primarily on software. In my job, I'm somewhat concerned about harsh environments, but I'm enjoying getting a broader picutre since that can stimulate free thinking.

Iron

A day late, but here nonetheless.

Iron

Great presentation too many audio interuptions

Have to pick up the tail end of this presentation

Very good presentation, I wish there was more time alloted.

Iron

thank you for a good background.  I see there has been a lot of development since I was in grad school in the early '90s.  I'll be back tomorrow, but probably need to listen at night since the audio won't pass the firewall at work.

Iron

Interesting presentation. Be back tomorrow.

Iron

thank you for a "lot" of information

Iron

Good evening - have to use the archived version

Iron

THANKS BEback tomorrow

Iron

come accross this alot, different routers, dead spots

Iron

hardware, software consultant, but hardware is more my line.

Iron

building networks, yes

 

Iron

some are familiar, really ned to learn more

 

Iron

We do not use it.

Iron

Network administrator

Iron

Harsh enviroments lots of CNC machines.

Iron

Yes, Wireless set up in warehouse and manufacuring plant.  Interested in controllers and wireless.

Iron

Thanks for a GREAT presentation - looking forward to tomorrow!

 

Platinum

Nice explanation of  Multipath and Doppler fading - something I think we have all experienced and didn't know why.

Platinum

Got called to a meeting today - for those who are unaware you can - its really nice to be able to catch up on the archive and slide presentation!

Platinum

Appreciated the important and sometimes neglected look at guardbanding!

Platinum

I recall hearing about UMTS and it was supposed to be a big deal, any information on that?

Platinum

I am working on a Telecom/IT Acronym Dictionary. Right now I got 35,000 from an anonymour source and a few from my own. If you are interested in contrinuting, please, send a text to 6162380545 with your e-mail.

Iron

I enjoyed hearing about the modem you built - Fanny. I remember a little wireless transmitter I built that was a lot of fun. It is amazing how far we have come!

Platinum

Alot of information to absorb - I'm looking forward to seeing how this comes together in future presentations.

 

Platinum

Thanks everyone. See you tomorrow 2pm eastern for Part II:  What You Need to Know about 802.11

Blogger

This is great for getting a basic understanding - I really appreciated your explanations of the different protocols!

 

Platinum

Thanks again, I can't wait for wireless sensor neworks!

 

Iron

are you going to cover OFDMA in tomorrow's session

 

Iron

e-see you tomorrow.

Iron

Thank you Fanny and Alex.

Iron

I'm looking forward to learning more about Blue Tooth technology.

Platinum

the guardbands for CDMA and OFDMA channels are comparable

 

Blogger

@Fanny.  Thank you.  I will be listening to the rest of the presentations.

Iron

Wonderful presentation

@Ran: Guidance to the presenter necessitates interruptions if it cannot be coordinated prior to lecture start, but survey questions and other background observations could be made in the live chat less obtrusively.

@Alex: I appreciate what you are doing to try to keep things moving along, and very much appreciate Digi-Key for presenting this series. No offense intended, and I hope none taken. Our comments are purely intended to maximize the benefit of the presenter's, your, Digi-Key's, and our investment of time.

Iron

FANNY: Practically speaking, CDMA and OFDMA have the same comm. channel density?

Iron

Thanks for slide show - excellent for clarification!

Platinum

otoSocpe is Fanny Mlinarsky

 

Blogger

luizcosta and everyone else. I appreciate your suggestions. Much of the stuff we do, we do it because it's part of the overall formate. So, we're not ignoring your suggestions when we ask questions, provide instructions,  or queue slides. I wanted to note that because your suggestions are legit but so is our need to keep the format. Maybe the trick is not to consider them interruptions, but consider them housekeeping. One regular radio, you don't get annoyed because they say the call sign every 10 minutes (by law), so why here?

Blogger

effective ways of dealing with multipath are a number of TX and RX diversity techniquest wich use frequency and phase diversity.

Blogger

FANNY: Is 'octoScope' you? If so, can you add the question to your answer?

Iron

Great presentation as many of the previous have been. Alex, the fewest possible interruptions the better. Thank-you both for making this available.

 

 

 

 

 

for longer range outdoor networks, watch some of the emerging standards, such as 802.11ah and 802.15.4g, which we will discuss later this week.

Blogger

OFDMA is the most efficient, but may be also the most expensive

Blogger

there will be Bluetooth discussion later in the week along with ZigBee

Blogger

@Fanny.  Our biggest problem with our wireless connection is range and reliability.  We are connecting two control units (ex. handheld unit to truck or control panel) which is used in many environments from delivery trucks in urban areas to indoors at manufacturing plants.  We also have to keep mind international regulations due to sales world wide. 

 

My question would be what protocol should we be looking at for longer range for systems that could have multipoints to multipoints but require low power and quick response?

Thank you

Iron

Thanks for the presentation!

FANNY: In your opinion, what is the most efficient EM scheme: CDMA, TDMA, GSM, ODMA, etc.?

Iron

IMS will be very important for:  enabling voice over LTE (VoLTE) and for prioritizing traffic for mission critical applications.  IMS defines 15 levels of priority.  It is expected to be depoyed by all the major carriers in the next few years.

Blogger

Thanks for info. Nice slides.

Iron

Thanks for the intro. Until tomorrow

 

Iron

For multi path interference, I always suspected phase shift detemination as a process to follow.

Any thoughts?

Iron

This lets you know what the radio receives rather than what the test equipment receives.  Sometimes it is possible to incorporate diagnostics softare in the radios performing the test so these radios can report signal strength, association information and roaming conditions.

 

Blogger

Yes, Alex: Perhaps the number of real-time survey questions should be limitted to one or two per lecture.

Iron

@Alex - I disagree with Mr. E's posting below.  Your guidance may be a bit intrusive, but it is a necessary evil to guide the presenter for our forum so they can tailor what is given for the intent of this forum and the level of our attendees.

Iron

thanks for the presentation. Have a nice day.

 

Iron

Thanks Fanny, Alex and all. See you tomorrow.

Iron

Fanny, I see the week covers WiFi, ZigBee, 900 MHz, etc... but will there be any Bluetooth discussion?  (Oh yeah - thanks for all the great info today!)

Iron

Hi Fanny,

Lots of good information and I hopr that you can provide some refernces or links to elucidate some further research after hours (homework?).

Iron

The best way to perform measurements in a factory is to use the actual radios being deployed.

 

Blogger

Thank you, see you tomorrow.

Iron

Oops! Optimum latency is 10mSec or less

Good intro.  Perhaps this should be two lectures.  I will look closely at the slides.

Blogger

My area of interest is in minimizing latency for audio communications, as when it exceeds 40 mSec the synching of lipreading cues is lost, and also the "comb filter effect" comes into play

thanks so much!  Very interesting

FANNY: From a wireless perspective, what do you think is the future of IMS as an infrastructure for pervasive telecommunications?

Iron

Thanks, Fanny and Alex.  This slide deck will be helpful in the future.

Gold

Thank you, Fanny!

Iron

How do I get to the chat page ?

Iron

What is the significance of the white space technologies and white space part of the spectrum?

 

Blogger

Equipment to test coverage includes devices like AirMagnet and others.  No equipment specifically maps multipath, but you can find nulls by looking at signal power. 

 

Blogger

Merci beaucoup !

Iron

Thanks for the Great Presentation

Iron

Great introduction to wireless...A lot of great information.  Very interested in looking further into the more robust wireless protocols.

Iron

 FANNY. GREAT LECTURE

Iron

Good presentation Fanny.

Iron

Like @Danlafleur, I'm interested in mapping the RF environment within a plant.

Iron

Thanks for a great session!

Thank you Fanny.

Iron

Thank you Fanny

 

Iron

Fanny, great deck. Any recommendation on resources and book for technical folks but not in wireless area? Thank.

Iron

thanks Fanny. great intro covering a wide range of topics

Iron

Thank you Funny, great presentation.

Iron

Alex, Fanny did a great job of preparing a lot of interesting and worthwhile information, but was unable to present it all due to constant interruptions from you. I would rather hear her entire presentation and less interruption. The slides are really good but not completely self-explanatory.

Fanny, thanks for your great presentation and preparation!

Iron

Thanks for an interesting presentation

Iron

thank you Fanny,

Iron

not really working with near-channel

Blogger

@fanny, from danlafleur is there a method or test equipment that will sweep through the range of frequencies in a plant and use a mobile unit to map the multipath losses?

Blogger

I'd answer you, Alan, but I don't want to interrupt Fanny and go off topic :)

Blogger

On slide 35, the summary of global unlicensed bands, the "Consideration" column for the 433 MHz band states "voice, video, audio and continuous data transmission are not allowed in the US." Why is that so?

Blogger

On slide 28, are those power limits for unlicensed ISM use?

not efficient though

Iron

If the iphone 5 doesn't have NFC I'll be very sad.

Iron

iphone powermat wireless charger also has some communication protocol between the phone piece and the powermat..may be nfc..what do you think?

Iron

TI and NXP are a couple of examples of chip vendors.

Iron

There are many reference designs from different vendors that are essentially off the shelf.

Iron

Depends on the signal strength and antennae

Iron

is there an off the shelf chip for nfc?

Iron

i mean 4 cm not 40

Iron

@gaghu - I think NFC is defined as 4 cm or less.

Iron

1cm is too less for some applications .. how about 1.5 inch? ..say 40 cm?

Iron

I'd answer you, Alan, but I don't want to interrupt Fanny and go off topic :)

Blogger

OFF-TOPIC: Can anyone tell me how to directly send a note to a specific participant?

Iron

NFC near is less than 1 cm

Iron

how near is near for NFC? in inch?

 

Iron

LTE is offered w/100 Mb - what hapenned w/ Google one-giga?

Thanks folks for the acronym help.

Iron

@fanny, is there a method or test equipment that will sweep through the range of frequencies in a plant and use a mobile unit to map the multipath losses?

Iron

For a direct idea of how Near Field is used by many hundreds of thousands of hearing impaired people, including myself right now as I'm listening to this lecture, check out the Widex Link links starting on this page: 
http://www.widex.pro/en/products/hearingaids/products/series/clear440/

 

 

how do you deal with moving location?  example: Delivery trucks in city areas.

Iron

@luizcosta - NFC = Near Field Communication

Iron

@luizcosta: Near Field Communication - a short distance wireless technology, used for Point-Of-Sale wireless payments and other things

Iron

nearfieldcommunications(nfc)

 

 

Iron

I should not have clicked that.

Iron

question from comment here - does highway toll-paying actually use NFC?   N=near...

Alex..is there a question on multipath ?

Iron

Not familiar with acronym NFC.

Iron

sound just stopped

Iron

(off-topic; answer here or later; don't bother interrupting audio) - what's the 'IRON' following our names?

 

Wait - What was the question again?

Iron

For multi-carrier, we will need to introduce quantum mechanics concepts to estimate position or time of events. :o)

Iron

Have used NfC at gas station, paying with attachment on my keychain.

Used NFC installed in my car topay highway toll.

Iron

i need all the info i can get

NFC Neutralize Fantasy Content?

Iron

@caa028 - I got an email for the Starbucks card for the last presentation a couple of weeks ago.  I posted a question to Alex about how we are supposed to receive it, but I never got a reply, and I never received the Starbucks gift.  I now have another email for today's presentation, but I don't think I should take it too seriously.  I suppose it's some sort of humor.

Iron

aware of it, but not in detail

Iron

Unaware of NFC but interested

Iron

The only NFC so far I was involved: RFID

Iron

Near field for mobile paymen - not interesting to me at this time.

Iron

Near Field Communications is VERY IMPORTANT to hearing aids, for inter-ear communications, and also communications between streamers and hearing aids -- I deal with that EVERY DAY!

Indirectly familiar with NFC

 

Iron

NFC is used in our badge access to the building at work.  Also experience it with POS, which I think could be the future of credit or money transfer.

Iron

I have read about NFC.  This is not needed in my products.

Iron

Familiar with NFC but not using it at work.

Iron

Actively researching NFC for project.

Iron

not aware of nfc and not relevant to what i do

Iron

Hello everyone. Looking foward to this new lecture.

Iron

Good morning all!

 

We need very strong and safer WiFi

Hi, guys and girls!

Iron

just one person's opinion, but i'm able to understand cdma concepts w/out needing powerpoint animations, and in the year 2012 my preference is for cloud based documents viewed in a standards compliant browser, vs. needing to install MS software on whatever computer i'm using to view the docs.  

animation on page 8 works in ie8

Iron

good afternoon everyone...

Iron

probably there are some MS specific animations or something in the slide decks.

I had been downloading the ppt files and uploading to my google docs account so i could view them from anywhere in the cloud.  i was not viewing the ppt files directly in chrome.  uploading to google docs allows an optional conversion step.  conversion worked for sessions 4 & 5 but 1, 2 & 3 failed.  had to download free MS powerpoint viewer to local computer to view ppt for session 1/2/3 but google docs in the cloud is preferred solution.

By the way, good morning all.

Iron

I just tried opening the ppt in a google chorme tab, it wanted to download instead.

Iron

I haven't tried goggle chrome yet, but the session 1 ppt is OK in ie8 when I open it in a new tab.

Iron

Again, the ppt for this week's session fails to convert in Google Docs for sessions 1, 2, and 3, but converts for sessions 4 and 5.  Can the presenter check what might be different between the failing vs. successfully converting slide decks?

The ppt looks to have been created using a very current version, thus I lost some of the data, but otherwise was able to retrieve

Iron

Be sure to click 'Today's Slide Deck' under Special Educational Materials above right to download the PowerPoint for today's session.

Hello, for those of us using alternatives to Microsoft products (e.g. Google Docs in my case), all of the powerpoint docs posted for prior weeks of this continuing education series have converted without severe problems.  However, the powerpoint for sessions 1, 2, and 3 of this week's class fails to convert.  Sessions 4 and 5 converted ok.  Could you please check if you are using any esoteric powerpoint features in the slide decks for sessions 1, 2, & 3, and if they are not essential to the presentation, alter or remove them?  Thanks for you consideration...
