    For packet radio networks, the AX.25 data link layer protocol is most often used. However, TCP/IP (Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is also popular. The AX.25 protocol is a variant of the international X.25 protocol applied to wireless communication and packet radio. Most networks are composed of copper or fiber optic cable and provide reliable communication between hosts. The wireles... View full abstract»

    In telephony, the loop is defined as the circuit connecting a subscriber's station (e.g., telephone set) with the line terminating equipment in a central office (a switch in the telephone network). The trunks start from the central office in the loop; they break down into several smaller bundles of circuits after moving away from the central office. These circuits are eventually separated into ind... View full abstract»

    The Arecibo radar and radio telescope stands on a triangular platform as it hovers 220 m above the ground. The spherical dish resides in a natural sink hole, one of the largest in Puerto Rico. This platform is the focal point of an isolated scientific outpost where staff and students ply their trade. The Arecibo Observatory is a US national laboratory managed by Cornell University (New York) throu... View full abstract»

    Cellular digital packet data (CDPD) offers on-the-go users access to a low-cost, widespread, wireless data network. CDPD can be overlaid on existing analog cellular systems, and share their infrastructure equipment on a non-interfering basis. Basically, CDPD transmits packet data over idle cellular channels. It autonomously switches to another channel when the current channel is about to be assign... View full abstract»
