Guess what? Push-to-talk is still alive, and well, apparently. While Sprint (and Nextel) and usually the companies tied to PTT services, it's AT&T connecting to this one. A new charter program will enable participants to experience new PTT communications, and in a world where everyone seems to be leaving the chirp behind, it's a strange goal to revert back and start up a new charter. The enhanced PTT solution trial, powered by Kodiak Networks Inc. InstaPoC technology, will harness AT&T's mobile broadband speeds, wireless network coverage, and broad portfolio of devices and the power of IP-based technology. That means faster and richer collaboration, lower cost of ownership and great potential... Read more...
Intel's Silicon Photonics Advancement Aims to Accelerate Future Computing, Communications SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 7, 2008 - Intel researchers have made the next advance in the field of Silicon Photonics by achieving world-record performance using a silicon-based Avalanche Photodetector (APD) that could lower costs and improve performance as compared to commercially available optical devices. The research results were published today in Nature Photonics.Silicon Photonics is an emerging technology using standard silicon to send and receive optical information among computers and other electronic devices. The technology aims to address future bandwidth needs of data-intensive computing applications... Read more...
