    Mobile television is handicapped by a divergence of standards. Amidst the runners and riders, odds for DMB/DAB-IP and DVB-H has been shortening, as mobile operators place their bets. The comparison of DMB/DAB-IP and DVB-H is discussed in terms of spectrum availability and network cost View full abstract»

    The Internet is changing - as it has to, because IPv4 does not support enough addresses for everyone alive today, let alone proliferating embedded and mobile devices. This paper discusses the advantages of Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) over IPv4. The main advantage of IPv6 is the increase in the number of addresses available for networked devices, allowing, for example, each mobile phone and ... View full abstract»

    The pace of growth of licence-exempt devices is set to continue. DECT phones, car key-fobs, baby monitors, garage-door openers, wireless headsets, WLANs in home and offices, wireless alarms, anti-theft systems, RFID chips: are all examples of license-exempt devices. From the point of view of a spectrum regulator there are broadly two reasons why devices might be exempted from licensing. The first ... View full abstract»

    Some people have RFID chips implanted in their hands so they can open their doors by waving at them. A US-based company, VeriChip Corporation, is the main driving force behind this application. Called the VeriChip, each device comes in the shape of a glass capsule containing a microchip and a copper coil that works as antenna. The chip is injected with a needle just under the skin in the triceps a... View full abstract»

    Moore's Law has proven a remarkably useful rule of thumb in the semiconductor industry. But technological progress in industries that rely on partly analogue technology - such as the mobile phone industry - obeys different laws. Digital technology is about information storage and processing: Moore's Law reflects the ability to reduce the amount of energy (electrons) needed to store and read a sing... View full abstract»

    The effectiveness of highly elliptical orbit (HEO) and geostationary orbit (GEO) in providing a satellite platform for the delivery of mobile multimedia content in Europe are discussed in this paper. ONDAS has conducted extensive studies comparing the merits of GEO and HEO-based systems for the delivery of satellite-based mobile multimedia in Europe, and finds that, for a European service, the eco...
