Will WiFi replace ethernet cable ?

Well,

 

It has always been possible to provide wireless LAN’s. But, what has always hampered their use has been the physical environment. For example, concrete walls full of rebar constitutes an antenna array and the only way thru with high speed is via a perpendicular angle of attack otherwise dispersion becomes an issue for very low angles of attack. Second issue is security… anything wireless is unsecure (remember my old saying “if it was conceived by a man another man can figure it out”) WEP/WPA can be breached. So, my neighbor could ride my IPTV but he has to have a set top box which are available on the black market (and have always been). MIMO is a complicated technology and is heavily dependent on stable inputs to produce stable outputs (it’s nothing more than a multiplexing technology). It is heavily used at cellular sites and works pretty good…. in the home or office? Long way to go for that.

 

Last thought, any wireless RF is heavy on protocol overhead, don’t be fooled by the stated throughput. An excellent cabled Ethernet system can get a maximum of 95%, the rest is eaten up by Ethernet overhead. Wireless requires more overhead capacity due to the interference that may be encountered, extra security, compression, MIMO processing, etc.

 

There’s more but think Greenfield versus Brownfield environments. How many times has AP’s been installed and additional ones had to be installed because of unforeseen signal strength issues that weren’t uncovered in the modeling?

 

Also notice the limited applications; streaming video, large file transfers, etc. Very expensive… as a user it doesn’t help me type faster nor read faster… to me, to try and fit to the individual is a waste of bandwidth; that’s why plain old cabled Ethernet has always won out in the end for the last 35 years….

 

Add to that, I can’t tell you what sources of interference I would encounter today in the 5ghz range must less tomorrow…. How about with my neighbors? Every source of interference is added overhead…   

 

The next evolution of Wi-Fi standard 802.11ac will replace Ethernet completely due to the cheaper cost of wired connections

Innova installs wifi / 802.11n  with cloud based controller nationwide for small and large enterprise 

Both 802.11ac and 802.11n will replace the Ethernet enterprise wiring ( Cat6 and Cat5e ) . Innova has installed 900 Mbps access point and following is the speed of the desktop to the switch using 802.11n usb card .









Davis-Felner  published the following article in ZDNet on   January 30, 2012 which high lights 802.11ac . We are  not agree with him and believe 802.11ac and 902.11n will have a major impact on Ethernet wiring suppliers and installers.

This trend will start from Hotel industry, schools and universities and will carry on to large enterprise since both security and speed have been matured and  now is comparable and less expensive than Ethernet cable.

The next evolution of Wi-Fi standard--802.11ac--promises faster wireless connection speed and higher data transfer rate than its predecessor, and will boost video distribution and uploading and downloading of large files. However, it will not replace Ethernet completely due to the cheaper cost of wired connections, analysts noted.

Gregory Potter, analyst at research firm NPD In-Stat, said the new specification boasts several advantages over the existing 802.11n standard. These include faster aggregate connection speed of over 1Gbps as well more power savings when used on mobile devices, he stated.

Kelly Davis-Felner, marketing director at Wi-Fi Alliance, added that 802.11ac operates in the less-used 5GHz frequency band, which makes it a compelling option to expand home Wi-Fi networks' capacity as consumers increasingly adopt connected mobile devices and use data-hungry apps.

The new standard also achieves higher throughput by extending the air interface concepts used by 802.11n such as wider radio frequency (RF) bandwidth, more MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) spatial streams, and high-density modulation, commented Filomena Berardi, senior Wi-Fi analyst at IMS Research.

In terms of compelling use cases for the new Wi-Fi specification, Potter identified video distribution as one such example.

"Imagine having your cable box wirelessly feeding video [content] to TVs in other rooms within the house," he said, adding that large file transfers from mobile devices to home computers could also benefit.

Davis-Felner noted both consumer and enterprise products will receive a boost from the new specification. "Devices ranging from laptops, tablets, printers to TVs, home appliances and smartphones will see benefits in performance and bandwidth capacity as well as take advantage of less crowded frequencies," she explained.

The enhanced new specification will not completely replace enterprises' need for Ethernet, though, but complement it, said Berardi.

Potter added that small and home offices (SOHO) have largely led the trend of Wi-Fi replacing Ethernet for years now and, with the new specification, he expects this trend to extend to large-sized businesses.

There will still be companies opting to use Ethernet cables due its lower costs and a lot of office buildings are already wired for Ethernet, he said. It is also more economical for companies with growing staff numbers to opt for wired connections, he added.

Consumers need convincing 
The NPD In-Stat analyst said the research firm had earlier predicted there will be 700 million 802.11ac devices shipped by 2015. During the initial phase, though, manufacturers will face challenges in convincing consumers to adopt new networking gear, he stated.

That said, there will always be consumers who want the "latest and greatest" tech gadgets and this demographic will be the one driving initial adoption.

Davis-Felner noted that the industry standard for 802.11ac is still being developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) currently, and is expected to be completed in 2013. She added that Wi-Fi Alliance expects to see devices certified with the specification in late-2012 or early 2013, with higher uptake of these devices from next year onward.

Streaming high-definition video wirelessly, Office WiFi installation Irvine, Los Angeles

Streaming high-definition video wirelessly throughout your home will be a major benefit of Wi-Fi 802.11ac in the next few years, says NPD In-Stat.

Re post : http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-57363508-94/wi-fi-802.11ac-to-drive-wireless-hd-video-in-the-home/

Expected to receive final approval by the IEEE toward the end of this year, 802.11ac will boast several improvements over 802.11n. The new wireless flavor will offer speeds surpassing 1 gigabit per second, almost three times that of 802.11n. It also promises to provide better coverage throughout an entire home with fewer dead spots. 

From a technical standpoint, the new standard will use such technologies as beamforming and higher amplitude modulation to send more data faster and more efficiently than 802.11n, NPD In-Stat analyst Gregory Potter told CNET. And 802.11ac will help smartphones and other mobile devices by providing higher bandwidth and a savings in power compared with 802.11n.

As 802.11ac starts to hit a variety of gadgets, including laptops, smartphones, tablets, and TVs, Potter sees high-definition video as the major beneficiary.

"The primary use case for consumers using 802.11ac is for video distribution," the analyst said late last week. "One scenario would be utilizing 802.11ac in a cable or satellite set top box for distribution of video to multiple televisions outside the main viewing area. Another would be utilizing 802.11ac on a smartphone to stream HD video directly to a television."

Once 802.11ac is approved this year, it will then be ready for certification by the Wi-Fi Alliance in early 2013, Potter explained. That will then pave the way for its full adoption by technology and consumer electronics companies.

At first, though, the industry will likely release a slew of "draft" 802.11ac devices, just as was seen with Wireless-N. Several vendors already showed off some of their upcoming 802.11ac products at CES earlier this month, including Buffalo, which demoed its first wireless routerpowered by the new protocol.

The first smartphones sporting 802.11ac will pop up early in 2013, forecasts Potter. Digital televisions adopting the new standard will also appear next year, with NPD In-Stat projecting more than 2 million 802.11ac-equipped TVs .

But consumers will probably have to wait until around 2015 before 802.11ac really latches onto the market.

At that point, the analyst expects 802.11ac to appear in more than 18 million routers, 25 million TVs, 129 million tablets, 184 million notebooks, and 279 million smartphones. Altogether, around 1 billion devices equipped with the new standard are forecast to ship in another three years.



Broadcom has partnered with 14 enterprises for its 5G Wi-Fi chip solutions, including Microsoft, LG Electronics, Motorola, Best Buy, Comcast, Buffalo, Belkin, Netgear, China-based Lenovo and Taiwan-based Asustek Computer and D-Link, Hurlston said.

YouTube Facts & Figures

posted Sep 24, 2011, 4:04 PM by David Khorram   [ updated Jun 27, 2017, 11:29 AM by Blog Poster ]

An average of 48 hours worth of video are uploaded to YouTube each minute and two billion videos are watched daily at the website, according to Ferguson.





Citi analyst Mark Mahaney breaks down some of Google’s opportunities for new billion-dollar businesses in a new research report he released this morning. In particular, he focuses on two of Google’s most promising growth opportunities: YouTube and local advertising. According to his estimates, YouTube’s gross revenues hit $825 million in 2010, and will reach $1.3 billion in 2011 and $1.7 billion in 2012. After stripping out revenue share, the net revenue contribution Google will get to keep from YouTube is estimated to go from $544 million last year to $1.1 billion in 2012 (see table above). Mahaney also tracks ads on Youtube’s Topp 100 videos. Currently, 81 percent of YouTube’s Top 100 videos show ads, compared to about 60 percent a year ago.

2011-09-21

FTM Consulting has announced the release of its latest study, entitled the Wireless Impact on the SCS Market.

"Until recently, wireless did not provide the performance capability of structured cabling systems (SCS) using copper and fiber cabling," said Frank Murawski, President of FTM Consulting. "(But) newer technologies, such as 802.11n have now placed wireless on a par with structured cabling systems' performance. 

He added that future technologies including 802.11ac and 802.11ad will provide further performance improvements.

In addition, the proliferation of newer mobile devices, such as newer smartphones and tablets, especially the Apple iPad, has placed increasing pressures on enterprises to allow for these devices to be connected to the enterprises' network. 

"We view the Apple iPad as a game changer, being universally accepted, in conjunction with enterprises' apps being developed for use within enterprises," Murawski said.

The study indicates the following:

* Moderate impact on the SCS market over the short term with SCS market growth declining from 22.9% in 2011 to a 14.7% growth by 2016.

* Severe impact in the far term, starting in the 2016 to 2017 time period. 

Factors considered in the analysis included:

* Sunken investment in current networks

* Newer networks likelihood to go wireless, bypassing SCS, especially small remote offices

* High-speed applications, such as data centres and video, to be mainly immune to wireless

Foot note:

The 802.11 family consists of a series of over-the-air modulation techniques that use the same basic protocol. The most popular are those defined by the 802.11b and 802.11g protocols, which are amendments to the original standard. 802.11-1997 was the first wireless networking standard, but 802.11b was the first widely accepted one, followed by 802.11g and 802.11n. 802.11n is a new multi-streaming modulation technique. Other standards in the family (c–f, h, j) are service amendments and extensions or corrections to the previous specifications.

802.11b and 802.11g use the 2.4 GHz ISM band, operating in the United States under Part 15 of the US Federal Communications Commission Rules and Regulations. Because of this choice of frequency band, 802.11b and g equipment may occasionally suffer interference from microwave ovenscordless telephones and Bluetooth devices. 802.11b and 802.11g control their interference and susceptibility to interference by using direct-sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) andorthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) signaling methods, respectively. 802.11a uses the 5 GHz U-NII band, which, for much of the world, offers at least 23 non-overlapping channels rather than the 2.4 GHz ISM frequency band, where all channels overlap.[1] Better or worse performance with higher or lower frequencies (channels) may be realized, depending on the environment.

The segment of the radio frequency spectrum used by 802.11 varies between countries. In the US, 802.11a and 802.11g devices may be operated without a license, as allowed in Part 15 of the FCC Rules and Regulations. Frequencies used by channels one through six of 802.11b and 802.11g fall within the 2.4 GHz amateur radio band. Licensed amateur radio operators may operate 802.11b/g devices under Part 97 of the FCC Rules and Regulations, allowing increased power output but not commercial content or encryption.




EEE 802.11ac is a wireless computer networking standard of 802.11 currently under development which will provide high throughput Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) below 6 GHz[1] (what is commonly known as the 5 GHz band).

Theoretically, this specification will enable multi-station WLAN throughput of at least 1 Gigabit per second and a maximum single link throughput of at least 500 megabit per second (500 Mbit/s). This is accomplished by extending the air interface concepts embraced by 802.11n: wider RF bandwidth (up to 160 MHz), more MIMO spatial streams (up to 8), multi-user MIMO, and high-density modulation (up to 256 QAM).

On January 20, 2011, the Initial Technical Specification Draft 0.1[2] was confirmed by IEEE 802.11 TGac.[3]

Standard finalization is anticipated in late 2012, with final 802.11 Working Group approval in late 2013.[4] According to a study, devices with the 802.11ac specification are expected to become common by 2015 with an estimated 1 billion spread around the world.[5]

As of September 2011, there are no consumer devices implementing the draft specification.
