Ethernet And The Cloud Storage Speed

Ethernet And The Cloud Storage Speed

Everyone likes the work to be done fast. Especially when it comes to tons of work under just a matter of days, hours even. The need for more and more agility comes in handy when we talk about computer networks. Many bigger files are often needed to be left in the cloud storages or sometimes require going from one system to another. How is all of this done? By all means with either cloud storage built to put in all the pictures, videos, documents or by the Ethernet that gives rise to the cloud storage. As we move forward with time, the files are going to get bigger and bigger, more and more challenges are going to line up. But what about the load the Ethernet is going to manage? Now there’s a need of it to be even faster. More like a formation of meta-Ethernet. That has the ability to move more and more data in less time. An Ethernet that is fast, yes! But also cost efficient. That has the ability to move 20 to 50 gigabytes of data in a second.

            The new system is introduced in such a way that it also reduces the cost of putting more and more coppered wires along the network. This system is going to be made of SerDes silicon IP and cabling technologies. The use of silicon in place of regular copper wires is going to give us a cost efficient increase in the CPU and more data hubs serving as centres. That are not a luxury in the current systems under use.

A Wi-Fi Router To Outlast Them All In The World


The world is moving on fast. Everyone likes to keep things simple but efficient. For example cell phones, they were very simple in the beginning and the number of functions they could do was very limited. But soon the term changed into smartphones and now these devices walk on the face of the earth changing everything. How about at this point we toss up the term called the “Smart Routers” or the OnHub series. Surely sounds something from the future right? But here’s the catch. It’s not from the future. It’s here. The tycoons known as Google, TP-Link and ASUS have come together to give rise to a new line of WiFi routers. The reasons why they’re being called smart are simple. Firstly this router knows what to do and how to set itself up.

Having 12 antennas, giving them strength there’s another way just to scan the area you put it in. And it will have the ability to adapt in the environment too. Next, in the line is having this router linked up with your smartphone and play with its settings remotely. Also that there are a lot of problems we face when putting the router in such a place, which is not suitable for the signals to reach every corner. OnHub is designed with the state of the art, not to be put in some corner of a house but to stay in the middle and with the help of the powerful antennas throw the signals all over even where normal routers can’t reach. The last astonishing feature to include is the onboard Bluetooth. That allows the home networking and automation. Even with all of these possibilities. OnHub routers are still to hit the market and perform. So maybe all we can do is wait and see.

Celebrating 40 glorious years of Ethernet

Ethernet cables

Well with the advent of the Ethernet in the horizon of the technology industry, the mankind has witnessed; what previously thought to be impossible. This world will always remember the year 1973 for two reasons, one for the launching of Skylab into space by the United States and secondly for Pink Floyd for singing the ever famous song with dope guitar riffs and solo “the dark side of the moon.”

Ethernet, which allowed us to connect our computers and laptops to each other and to the adapters with the help of networking standards. Without any fraction of doubt, it is still the vital organ to the many networks we connect to in our daily endeavors. Ethernet’s applications are everywhere, as it has moved ahead of the enterprise of the 1990s to take over the service provider and home networks industry. Now it has become the central dogma of state of the art future generation data centers. There is no limit to its use, bringing connectivity access to enterprises, business firms, service provider. It is because of this Ethernet that Silicon Valley came into existence and we can have connectivity even out on the roads.

Starting from just a room Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) in 1973, with their first cable which was a fat coaxial cable with extra shielding that seemed like a stiff garden hose and with a very slow speed of data moving, by slow I mean 10 megabits per second. It was a nightmare as compared to 100-gigabit speeds which is offered by the much more thin and reliable cables today.
