WiFi/WLAN is taken so much for granted nowadays, that it's easy to forget just how far it has come in recent years. Given that it took around 15 years to get from proprietary 1Mbps technologies such as those offered by NCR (WaveLAN) and Olivetti (can't remember the product name, except that they...

I recently had the "pleasure" of visiting Milton Keynes; the railway station was packed with what were surely tourists - some mistake here? Admittedly, all looking in a hurry to get back to London... does "Stratford-Upon-Avon" translate aurally as "Milton Keynes" in some languages?

"Cloud" and "WLAN" or "WiFi" are not, to date, IT terms that are typically seen in tandem, but Tallac Systems, a new venture for a number of ex HP er, yes - let's say it - veterans (I reckon I can out-run you guys if necessary) are looking to create one from t'other.

Is Travelling A Non-Contact Sport?

As ever (it seems) been doing a lot of travelling, hence a lack of blogs - is this because we can't contact the Ether-world when travelling?

Well - obviously not, but then it's still not as straightforward as it might be. For example, why was it that one US hotel in Bay Area with free...

Holidays Still Means Emails For Many Of Us

So we're coming up to holiday time - funnily enought, the idea for me of getting on a flight to a hot destination...doesn't really work for someone whose life should be co-sponsored by Ryanair and Easyjet.

However, on my travels and the occasional 2-day break I do stay in a mix of...

So.

Yet more extensive travelling and lack of Internet (I can't rate McDonald's free WiFi very highly based on recent experience - like going back to 2.4kbps dial-up - but now I am with, not one, but two mobile data networks (Vodafone and 3) as part of our new Mobile Test Labs stuff; so...

Still Summer – Still Cloudy…

It's a very interesting scenario when you work for yourself and summer arrives.

People go on holiday. Which is very annoying when:

a) You're trying to finalise dates for the next series of test projects and
b) You're looking for news in the networking world to blog...

So the government's Digital Britain roadmap goes into operation today.

Given that there are 245 pages of the report wot launches it, I have focused on one obvious element, which is how much public money is being spent on the great new digital Britain, that amount being £200m. Now,...

CCTV Applications I Hadn’t Thought Of…

Having recently written a white paper on IP Surveillance systems for D-Link, of the many applications I described within, none were related to that which has led to my morning cuppa being rudely interrupted; namely by footage on BBC Breakfast TV of a neighbourly dispute in Lincolnshire whereby...
