    The era of satellite communications, now going on fifty years in length, has in many ways only just begun. Perhaps one day we will see broadband commercial satellite systems operating to support telecommunications services for the Moon and Mars. But the excitement of the early years will be hard to beat.

    This article discusses the logical implementation of the media access control and the physical layer of 100 Gb/s Ethernet. The target are a MAC/PCS LSI, supporting MAC and physical coding sublayer, and a gearbox LSI, providing 10:4 parallel lane-width exchange inside an optical module. The two LSIs are connected by a 100 gigabit attachment unit interface, which consists of ten 10 Gb/s lines. We re... View full abstract»

    The role of forward error correction has become of critical importance in fiber optic communications, as backbone networks increase in speed to 40 and 100 Gb/s, particularly as poor optical-signal-to-noise environments are encountered. Such environments become more commonplace in higher-speed environments, as more optical amplifiers are deployed in networks. Many generations of FEC have been imple... View full abstract»

    We review and summarize several 100G per channel high-capacity transmission systems enabled by advanced technologies such as multilevel modulation format, new low-loss and large effective area fiber, hybrid EDFA/Raman amplification, and digital coherent detection technologies. We show that high-speed QPSK, 8PSK, 8QAM, and 16QAM can all be generated using commercially available optical modulators u... View full abstract»

    A situation is an abstraction for a pattern of observations made by a distributed system such as a sensor network. Situations have previously been studied in different domains, as composite events in distributed event based systems, service composition in multi-agent systems, and macro-programming in sensor networks. However, existing languages do not address the specific challenges posed by senso... View full abstract»
