Wireless Local Area Networking: <BR>An Introduction.
Краткое содержание статьи: Wireless Networking is on the rise and adds a whole new level of convenience to networking. It has the ability to reduce the costs of setting up and maintaining a computer network. It does, however, pose certain risks that might be considered too big for high end corporations as well as high end users.

IEEE 802.11, 802.11a, and 802.11b, Continued

DSSS works in a different manner altogether. DSSS combines the data stream with a higher speed digital code. Each data bit is mapped into a common pattern of bits known only to the transmitter and the intended receiver. This bit pattern is called a chipping code. This code is a random sequence of high and low signals that signify the actual bit. This chipping code is inverted to represent the opposite bit in the data sequence. This frequency modulation, if the transmission is properly synchronized, offers it's own error correction, and thusly has a higher tolerance for interference.

IEEE 802.11, 802.11a, and 802.11b, Continued

The MAC layer defines a way of accessing the physical layer and also controls the services related to the mobility management and the radio resource. It is similar to the wired Ethernet standard for data transmission. The differences arise in the way data collisions are handled. In the wired standard, data packets are sent out to the network indiscriminately. Only when two packets in a sense "collide" does the system use additional measures to ensure packets get to their destination. In the 802.11 standards, collision avoidance is implemented. In these, the receiving wireless host sends an acknowledgement (ACK) packet to the receiver once it has received the data successfully. If the sender does not receive an ACK packet, the sender then waits a period of time before it attempts to resend the data.

Unfortunately, there are some unresolved issues about the 802.11 standard that need to be addressed. Standardization and interoperability are the goals of the standard, yet there are some key issues necessary to achieve multiple-vendor interoperability are absent in the standard. These include access point coordination for roaming - there is no hand-off mechanism in the standard as one moves out of range of one AP and into another. Also, there is no test suite designed to test whether or not a device actually conforms to the standard.

История мейнфреймов: от Harvard Mark I до System z10 EC
Верите вы или нет, но были времена, когда компьютеры занимали целые комнаты. Сегодня вы работаете за небольшим персональным компьютером, но когда-то о таком можно было только мечтать. Предлагаем окунуться в историю и познакомиться с самыми знаковыми мейнфреймами за последние десятилетия.

Пятнадцать процессоров Intel x86, вошедших в историю
Компания Intel выпустила за годы существования немало процессоров x86, начиная с эпохи расцвета ПК, но не все из них оставили незабываемый след в истории. В нашей первой статье цикла мы рассмотрим пятнадцать наиболее любопытных и памятных процессоров Intel, от 8086 до Core 2 Duo.
