    The evolution of telephone communications over the past one hundred years has become and will continue to be an important part of our life. The purpose of any communications service is to transport the signal, either voice, data or video to its destination, any corner in the world, with an acceptable quality. The availability of these previously mentioned services is different for different service environments. To provide these services, various access facilities used by the end users to access to telecommunication networks must be made available to all of the users. The (public) networks covering different parts of the world must be interconnected so that the global communication can be implemented, that is, the so-called global network must be realized. The author briefly discusses early voice communication and then describes the present telephone networks including access facilities, and T1 and E1 facilities. The author briefly discusses future developments View full abstract»

    Submarine antennas can be divided into two broad categories: mast and towed systems. In a mast system, a set of antennas is erected from the ship's sail to enable communication; several typical antennas used in a mast configuration are shown. A towed system, in contrast, is trailed behind the submerged vessel. The towed antenna system is probably the more complex design challenge of the two categories mentioned above, since issues such as buoyancy, mitigation of signal outages due to seawater wash-over, physical robustness and stealth must be simultaneously addressed if the system is to be used effectively in coastal warfare scenarios. Therefore, this paper focuses on submarine towed antenna design. View full abstract»

    From a macroscopic viewpoint, the underlying concept for search and rescue (SAR) involving radio beacons is a communications channel. The communications channel should establish a two-way link by providing confirmation of the message received. The author outlines the different aspects of the SAR communications channel from its very beginnings to the current COSPAS-SARSAT satellite system, and he attempts to predict its evolution into the next century. The first SAR communications channel was instituted with legislation mandating the installation of 121.5-MHz emergency locator transmitters (ELTs) or crash position indicators (CPIs) on all aircraft. Improvements in the communications channel through faster detection of the ELT and better location accuracy were made. The world's first prototype local user terminal (LUT) was introduced in the late 1970s. This is a satellite receiving station designed explicitly for the SAR communications channel. The LUT itself now detects and locates the beacon transmitter. A global communications network, specifically for SAR data, should eventually emerge View full abstract»

    The successful launch of OTS in 1978 has demonstrated in orbit the capability of European Industry to produce a number of microwave "firsts" in the 14/11 GHz band. Some of these "firsts" e.g. parametric amplifier, downconverter and TWTA's are or will be reused in other satellites. Such equipment was the outcome of a preparatory programme started in the early '70 and intended to foster development of space hardware for the Ku band. View full abstract»

    While many of the technical foundations of information systems have roots in computer science, this discipline and its application on the job is much broader. Information systems professionals no longer deal exclusively with computer domain experts; they now have to communicate as well with a variety of individuals who come to the table with varying views of the problems they are trying to solve. This idea market session will explore the implications of this changing role for the students of information systems, the courses they take and the instructors who teach them; the technical communication skills and concepts needed to succeed in that role; and the applicability to the training of technical professionals in general.

    Today, the primary motive power unit employed by U.S. railroads is the diesel engine. The steam locomotive has been phased out, and the use of electric traction has declined markedly. Until recently, the trend was against the further extension of electrified operation because of high initial costs. Further, the diesel locomotive can be operated throughout a railway system??in both electrified and nonelectrified zones. Now, however, with the advent of extensive electric power grids, rectifier locomotives, and ambitious plans for extensive rapid-transit systems, electrified operation has obtained a new lease on life. Signal system development has brought notable improvement in railroad safety and operations. Most important in this category is centralized train control, by means of which a single tower can control all switches and signals over more than a thousand kilometers of mainline track. And with automatic train stop equipment and speed control, a train running through a stop signal or exceeding a speed limit can be electronically stopped or slowed, thereby eliminating the possibility of human failure. Two-way radio communications have done much to expedite freight-train operations. Many locomotives, cabooses, and signal towers are equipped to permit train conductors to talk to engineers or tower personnel, and to receive orders while en route. View full abstract»

    Modern communication theory originated from the attempts of communication engineers to understand what they were doing, in the most general terms. When the mathematical concept of information had crystallized out of these attempts, it was found that a track beaten by theoretical physicists led to the same idea, and, as usual, it was found that pure mathematicians had prepared the way to even more general developments. The new science of information theory thus connects several fields of research, old and new, each with its own techniques. View full abstract»

    The 10 year process of selecting European and international communications standards for use in building management has given official recognition to those standards gaining some success in the market. Meanwhile, the uptake of new open standards developed for the data communications, industrial control and IT industries continues irrespective of the official situation. In addition to employing Ethernet and TCP/IP data transport standards, higher level Internet protocols such as the HTTP, used for World Wide Web pages and XML data, are rapidly being adopted for building management. The industry now needs to adopt the XML format for the transfer of data into IT systems. The objects and services currently embodied in the BACnet protocol should be employed for both XML and other new technologies as they become adopted for building management. View full abstract»

    Mobile communications have evolved through countless innovations that have resulted in massively improved performance and significantly lower cost with each technology generation. Beginning with the firm theoretical foundations for communications laid by Claude Shannon in 1948, successive improvements in cellular technology have been achieved through a combination of advances in communication theory, computing power, and analog radio frequency (RF) circuit electronics. In this paper, we chart the course of successive generations of mobile technology highlighting some of the key innovations resulting in the major performance improvements that have been achieved over the years. We begin with a high-level discussion of the key technology generations starting with the analog cellular systems deployed in the 1980s through to the 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) system being deployed today. We highlight the 11 major technical advances that have led to the most significant improvements in cellular technology and then present a view of the future wireless evolution to the beginning of the 5G era.

    Discipline maturity and, more often, discipline development are recurrent themes in technical and professional communication scholarship. This paper reviews 25 years of the IEEE transactions on professional communication in terms of how and who creates knowledge. Specifically, we identify methods used by whom in an attempt to explore how the journal has developed complexity. We posit that the journal has evolved from describing practice to positing theory and finally to employing empirical research methods to evaluate theoretical application. View full abstract»

    Downlink amplifiers on geostationary communications satellites are required to operate in harsh environments for extended mission lifetimes (of up to 20 years) with a challenging combination of performance parameters and ultra-high reliability. TWTAs were the only option for systems designers nearly 50 years ago at the birth of the space age that were capable of providing the required power/frequency product for communications links. This history is similar to that of many other applications (radar, ECM, etc.). More recent history, however, shows that satellite communications payload architecture continues to use TWTAs for the vast majority of downlink amplifier applications while many other types of systems have moved away from TWTAs into alternate amplifier types and/or architectures. This presentation will highlight many of the key differentiating capabilities of modern space qualified TWTAs that have enabled them to maintain and grow a competitive advantage versus solidstate amplifier in satellite communications payloads. These differences are worth noting by designers of all types of systems requiring microwave amplification. View full abstract»
