Network Trends

The year 2010 will bring about many changes in the field of wireless telecommunications – learn what you can already enjoy. In the network pane was last year was devoted to the new wireless standards 802 11n, enabling previously unattainable speeds and ranges. Although the first decision was adopted already in 2006, the final version was released only in September last year. New transfer speeds from theoretically 600 Mbit / sec enable breakthrough innovations, especially in the area of multimedia. Although many manufacturers set their devices only on 300 Mbit / s, the new year will have many innovations in the field of streaming. More and more routers provide USB slots, such as external hard drives or USB sticks are included in the network. Other devices (such as game consoles or televisions) on the media files can access this, without them having to download in advance or copy. Transfer rates currently 300 MB, it is now for the first time, also high resolution videos is done without reproduce interruption to download the movie information during playback of the movie.

In addition to video files of course also photos and audio files can be deployed across the network that you need is a computer. It is that the manufacturers have to until today only about half of the possible throughput probably a cost issue, finally technology, which allows the simultaneous use of multiple antennas, is made possible by the MIMO rate a throughput of up to 600 Mbps. Here, too many manufacturers have announced already, to fully exploit this achievement this year. First devices with up to 450 Mbits per second are already expected in the first quarter of this year. Another trend, many manufacturers have only recognized in 2009, is the design of the network hardware. Recently, begin making living room suitable for the router, the design clearly to improve. This continued in 2010 so some manufacturers already now offer devices with built-in display or picture frames, which show, for example, images from the network, or information about the network itself.
