New Control Technology for LTE and Wi-Fi Doubles Communication Speed

first_imgFujitsu Laboratories set up a Wi-Fi access point in a communication area covered by a telecom carrier’s LTE network, then placed multiple devices in the area covered by the Wi-Fi access point and measured their communication speeds, both when using existing technology, as in Figure 1, and when using the newly developed connection control technology. Measurements were taken while varying the placement of the devices, and it was confirmed that the new technology could, on average, double communications speed, compared with existing connection control technology.With this technology, services that require high communication speeds, such as streaming video, can be used even more easily in Wi-Fi service areas.Fujitsu Laboratories aims to conduct even larger-scale field trials using this technology to improve its stability, with the goal of commercializing it in fiscal 2018. They also intend to move forward on expanding functions to enable selection of radio access technologies for 5G, aiming for application from fiscal 2020 onwards. The Fujitsu connection control technology requires the install of a dedicated application on a device that communicates with the connection control function on the control server, which then predicts the impact on communication speeds if multiple devices changed their connection at the same time. It then automatically sets communications routes for multiple devices in a given Wi-Fi service area all at once based on that prediction .Features of the technology are as follows.1. Technology that estimates the volume of usable wireless resourcesWith this technology, by installing a dedicated application on a device, the server can control each device, but because devices without the application are also using Wi-Fi and LTE wireless resources, the amount of wireless resources available to controlled devices can change. Therefore, the dedicated application installed on the controlled device first collects information on current communication speeds and wireless quality, and notifies the connection control function on the control server. The connection control function then calculates the communication speed if there were sufficient usable wireless resources from the wireless quality information, and by comparing this with the actual communication speed, estimates the volume of usable wireless resources. This then enables connection control that responds to the situation in that location.2. Wireless communication route optimization technologyWith the connection control function, this technology calculates the predicted communication speed for each controlled device in a Wi-Fi service area using information about the volume of wireless resources that can be used and wireless quality information from controlled devices for each routing pattern, whether each controlled device uses Wi-Fi or LTE for its communication route. Using these results, it chooses the distribution pattern of communication routes that maximizes overall communication speed in the area, and then the connection control function on the control server notifies the dedicated application on each device that corresponds to that pattern, and then carries out switching of the communication route. Fujitsu Laboratories has announced the development of connection control technology for LTE and Wi-Fi to boost communication speed in areas with Wi-Fi.When devices doing high-load communications tasks, such as streaming videos, are concentrated on a single Wi-Fi access point, deterioration in communications speed for each of these devices is a problem. So far, devices have been equipped with technology to enable them to choose a communications route to mitigate communication speed deterioration, such as connecting to LTE instead of Wi-Fi when the Wi-Fi’s communication quality is poor. However, as each device determines its communications route independently, without considering the impact on other devices, this can cause overall communications speed to decrease.Fujitsu Laboratories has developed a connection control technology that uses a cloud-based connection control ability to predict communications speed when multiple devices change their connection at the same time, and can automatically set communication routes for multiple devices on the same Wi-Fi access point all at once based on that prediction.They carried out performance evaluations of this technology by changing the distribution of devices using a telecommunications carrier’s LTE network, and it was confirmed that this technology can increase communications speed by about a factor of two, on average, when compared with previously used technology. With this technology, mobile users can even more easily make use of services that require high communications speeds, such as videos.In recent years, with the spread of smartphones and tablets, there has been an increase in high-load traffic, such as videos. In addition, Wi-Fi is being expanded, and it is expected that, with the further expansion of areas in which it is possible to use Wi-Fi in the future, users will have more opportunities to enjoy watching videos and using other services while out and about. Current technology allows a large number of users to connect to public Wi-Fi, however, when users who are watching videos or using other high-load communications are concentrated around a single access point, the communications speed can drop, causing situations in which videos stop playing. There is a demand for technology that can avoid this type of situation, without stress on users.Technology OverviewAt the moment, several technologies have been applied as methods of improving communications speed for Wi-Fi users, such as a technology that limits reductions in communications speed by having the device autonomously change to connect to LTE, and technologies that limit the number of users that can connect to a Wi-Fi access point. With existing technologies in which each device determines its communications route based on communications quality without considering its impact on other devices, situations could arise that reduce overall communications speed, as when Wi-Fi is chosen even when users doing high-load communications are concentrated around a Wi-Fi access point, or when LTE is chosen even in situations where there are not many users who can use Wi-Fi.last_img read more

Rought bags a weekly brace

first_imgJomtien Golf with the IPGCMonday, Dec. 6, Eastern Star – StablefordMonday was a public holiday and we were at Eastern Star with six ladies and only two divisions for the men.  Pleasant conditions yet again with a cooling breeze coming from the north.  The cut today in division 1 was 6-18 and 19+ in division 2. Miss Nit won the ladies division with 37 points ahead of Miss Nut in second on 34.Peter Grant topped division 2 with 37 points, one up on Les Smith in second and Glyn Evans took third with 33.Still playing off 6, Chris Voller won division 1 with 35 points, the Irish bandit Cully Monks was second one point behind and Mikael Andersson took the bronze with 31 after beating Andy, Arvo and Taivo on count-back.Mikael and Taivo shared the ‘2’s in division 1 and Alan Duckett and Peter Grant the same in division 2.There were 32 players out today and not one person reached the green on the 6th hole and even more amazingly there were no nearest the pins in division 1 on the 17th.  Other near pins went to Taivo (2), Peter Grant and Les Smith.Wednesday, Dec. 8, Green Valley – StablefordBack to reality and there were ten groups out today with the cut in division 1, 6-15, division 2, 16-20 and division 3, 21 plus.  The greens were slightly slower from our previous visit but this did not prevent the high scores from coming in.Mike Combs was the victor in division 1 with 39 points followed by Don Head on 37 and Chris Voller in third with 36.Bryan Rought shot 40 points to win division 2, with Cully Monks beating the West Country racehorse trainer Malcolm Saunders on a 21/18 back nine count-back for second after they both came in with 39 points.In his last game before his return to Hong Kong, Martyn Arnold won division 3 with 34 points, beating Joe Kubon and Fred Duffy on a 21/16/14 count-back.Arvo Hiller and Chris Voller shared the ‘2’s pot in division 1 and there are now two rollovers in division 2 to Mountain Shadow next week.Near pins went to Kari Aarnio, Chris Voller (3), Alan Blaikey, Fred Duffy, Malcolm Saunders and Rudi Schafer.Friday, Dec. 10, Eastern Star – Stableford.A slightly larger field than that of Wednesday, with everyone hoping to get familiarized with the course before the Christmas extravaganza here next Friday.  The cut was almost identical to Wednesday at Green Valley and the scores very similar as well.In his first game after six weeks away on the African continent, Chris Slota won division 3 with 36 points, beating the Falklander Peter Grant on a 20/18 count-back after they both finished level on points.  Tom Novak was third with 34.Waiting to be cut this weekend, Bryan Rought scored 38 points to win division 2, Don Nellis was second 4 points behind and scoring 33 points for third place was Dennis Scougall.In the spotlight again but with only 33 points was Chris Voller who won division 1 after beating Pete Sumner on an 18/16 count-back.  Mikael Andersson took third after beating Mike Combs 16/15 on the count-back after they both shot 32.Miss Nut won the ladies division with 40 points and Jill Stanley claimed her first ever prize in five years after her birdie on the third hole to win the ladies ‘2’s.  There was another rollover in division 1 but Jim Connelly and Declan Lyne shared the purse in division 2 after they both birdied the 13th.Near pins were claimed by Howard Stanley, Pete Sumner, Takimoto, Chris Voller, Jim Connelly, Bernd Floethner, Declan Lyne, Marcus and Jill Stanley.last_img read more

Perez: It’s a lie that Real Madrid paid De Gea 10 million euros

first_img CEST Upd. at 16:02 After the move collapsed — due to the paper work not being uploaded on time — reports surfaced that Madrid would have to pay De Gea to compensate him for not signing him. Sport EN Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has slammed the reports which have suggested Los Blancos have had to pay David de Gea 10 million euros for failing to sign him in the summer.  “[It’s being said] by the same people who have been saying since I arrived at the club that I would make Madrid a PLC.center_img De Gea’s move to Madrid fell through on the final day of the transfer window, with the Spanish goalkeeper instead remaining with Manchester United, where he signed a new contract last week.  “Every day [since the move fell though], I have heard that we had to pay 10 million euros for not signing De Gea, but that is a lie,” Perez said.  20/09/2015 “Fifteen years later, they are still accusing me of corrupting assemblies.”last_img read more

Powered by Firework Former Manchester United and Everton long time goalkeeper Tim Howard has decided to call it a day, and is set on retiring come October when the 2019 MLS season comes to an end. The American goal stopper officially revealed the news himself via his Twitter earlier yesterday. Advertisement Howard joined the Red Devils for US $4M in the summer of 2003 and stayed at Old Trafford for further 4 years where he won the FA Cup and League Cup, before being loaned out Everton in the 2006-07 campaign, where he left his mark upon his arrival in Merseyside, as a £3 million deal was offered to him the very next season in 2007.The 39-year old goalkeeper made a club record for the most clean sheets with Everton, during the 2008-09 season. Howard even scored his first goal for the Merseyside club in a 2-1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers, as his wind-assisted 101-yard clearance went past Bolton ‘keeper Adam Bogdan’s goal line, becoming only the fourth goalkeeper in the Premier League to have registered his name on the goal scorer’s sheet.Advertisement After making a grand total of 329 appearances for Everton, Howard left England to return to his homeland in 2016, and joined MLS side Colorado Rapids. Earlier yesterday Howard tweeted that he will be retiring once the current MLS season comes to an end in October. Advertisementlast_img read more
