Cloudy WiFi? Why Not?

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...

Mobile Goes Data Mad

Having recently got back from several weeks travelling around Europe, including a fair chunk in the UK, me and my 3G data dongles have been keeping close company, as the very WLAN products that I've tested over the years continue to fail to work when as badly deployed as they generally are in...

This week I was at an HP press event (dusting off the journo hat) getting an update about many of the areas I've been involved in testing with recently with the company, notably the Converged Infrastructure (CI) solution and the TippingPoint-based Secure Virtualisation Framework. Key to the...

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...

This summer's been interesting.

It's supposed to be holiday time, but the IT world is mega-active at the moment. Consequently I've been out to Utah with a client there, Paris and now... er, Crawley (where the "summer" weather is 12 degrees and the sky has consisted of several varying...

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...

Interesting to hear that Virgin is piloting 200-400Mbps Broadband (in Kent, so they be hopful of a good result (bad spelling makes bad gags) without really knowing what applications it will be used for.

Here in Andorra they've also been rolling out FTTH and have that great application...

Who Really Owns The 802.11 In Your WiFi?

Interesting news from our friend HP (especially since I'm testing ProCurve newly acquired from Colubris WLAN controller) in that it has settled confidentially with Australia's science agency CSIRO which has a longstanding patent claim against many of the well-known WLAN product vendors.

Why is it that all the furniture in Sweden looks like it was obtained during a raid on IKEA and that, everywhere, you are offered meatballs?

Even at the launch of ProCurve's newly acquired Colubris WLAN technology in Stockholm, meatballs figured heavily (literally) in many conversations....
