Lots of houses have WiFi so it would seem the simple solution is to use a WiFi home network rather than a wired network. All the devices would simply be a few more devices on the existing network.

I agree with you, Larry. Having a fully integrated system where home automation meets home security would justify the cost of such an upgrade. Having this wireless technology is also easier to integrate into existing and new homes, condos, and other systems (such as dorms and other larger infrastructures). What's interesting to me is that this article and the smart parking sensor article (tech like that is implemented in SF, the usual early adoptors) are originally appearing in EE Times Europe. I'm hoping other places will adopt it. I do realize that developing countries and places with either older or up and coming internet infrastructures will have a harder time adapting to this because their networks are possibly not as protected or widely connected. In addition, any information that is wireless will need special encryption, protection, and require server fail-over or back-up power. Also, with the "green" movement, how energy will the automation/monitoring be?

What I like about Android@Home is the fact that they are building a software stack that isn't hardwired into a physical layer. Where would Google be now if they had had to build a new Internet to run their software? They understand building on top of existing infrastructure. Larry M.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
