[Shane Burrell] came across a Nortel GPSTM and re-purposed it as a 10MHz reference for his lab. The GPSTM is designed to slot into a backplane, most likely for telecoms applications. So [Shane] needed to hack the board to run from a 48v PSU. Once powered up, it was relatively easy to interface as the card appears to contain the well known Trimble Thunderbolt module and is compatible with its software.

We’ve covered frequency references before and they can be a valuable addition to a lab. On the back of most scopes, spectrum analyzers and function generators you’ll find a 10MHz reference input allowing the user to supply a reference more accurate than that generated internally. Not only is an external reference often more accurate, it also allows you to keep all your equipment in sync with a common reference, which can be particularly important in some measurements. While some hackers opt for Rubidium sources, the GPS disciplined temperature-controlled oscillator in the Nortel unit should provide a nice stable reference.

A word of warning to [Shane] though, get sucked into hacking frequency references and you may become a time nut finding yourself climbing mountains to test the theory of relativity.

Killexams : The Beep Goes On Buyers Guide
The Beep Goes On
You ignore the humble telephone at your own risk.

by James Penhun

WITH MORE AND more new technology products flooding the market, that old standby, the telephone, tends to get lost in the shuffle. Even with the rise of the Internet and other electronic media, however, the phone still represents the primary point of contact between most offices and the rest of the world.

Cutting the Cord
Running a home office or small business often involves doing a half-dozen things at once, so many customers look for phones that supply them some mobility. Although cordless phones were originally positioned for the consumer market, their growing popularity and technological improvements have made them an increasingly common choice among small-office customers. Prices for cordless phones have fallen sharply in recent years, but picking the right one can be confusing, since the market encompasses several different technologies providing varying degrees of performance, security and affordability.
Cordless phones are really nothing but two-way radios that transmit conversations back and forth between the handset you talk into and the base station that connects to the phone jack in the wall. These transmissions occupy two separate ranges of the radio frequency spectrum: Older, less expensive 10- and 25-channel cordless phones use the range from 46 to 49MHz, while newer 900 MHz phones run at much higher frequencies that are less prone to interference from electrical appliances, fluorescent lights, and other radio traffic. Even farther up the spectrum are the existing phones, which transmit at the 2.4GHz frequency.
Cordless phones also use two different methods to process the voice signals they transmit. All 25-channel phones and many of the 900MHz phones sold today employ traditional analog transmission technology. But some of the more expensive 900MHz phones now transmit digitally, giving them better sound and making them much less susceptible to interruptions and eavesdropping from other phones or radios.
Some of the high-end digital cordless phones use spread-spectrum technology to transmit the same signal over multiple frequencies within the 900MHz range. That makes these phones even less prone to interference than standard 900MHz digital models. Spread-spectrum phones are also more powerful, with a greater operating range than other cordless phones.
You can buy entry-level 10- and 25-channel phones for as little as $25, while low-end 900MHz models run between $50 and $70. In cordless, however, you get what you pay for, so it makes sense to spend extra for a phone with more features that will serve you longer and be easier to use. Digital 900MHz phones start at about $120, while digital spread-spectrum units generally start at $150 or more. Most manufacturers also make cordless units that include the same message answering, caller ID and memory features available from corded phones, though cordless units with more than two lines are rare.
Nearly all the cordless phones made today use some type of security code to prevent someone with another handset from making calls through your base station. Better analog phones employ voice scrambling technology to prevent transmissions from being understood by other cordless users, while digital units may use digital or spread-spectrum encoding to deliver higher levels of security. Keep in mind, however, that call security is a two-way street: Even if your cordless phone offers the highest level of protection, an older, less secure phone used by whomever you're calling may be subject to snooping.
Don't forget that all cordless units rely on battery power. Check to see how long the batteries in the phone's handset are supposed to last before they must be recharged. Talk time, or the amount of time the handset can be used to make calls, is usually measured in hours, while standby time, the length of time the handset can be left away from the base-station charger, is measured in days.

Tried and True
There's still plenty of life in the traditional corded phone. It's been nearly 15 years since AT&T was broken up, and competition between large consumer electronics vendors, specialty phone suppliers, and a host of low-end players has driven prices steadily downward. The same competitive forces have also led to some significant improvements in performance and features available from even the most basic units. Some of these improvements are built into the telephone itself, while others, such as call waiting, caller ID and voicemail, are available from the local telephone carriers through their networks.
Corded phones offer several other basic advantages: Unlike cordless units, they don't need batteries or a base station, so you'll never need to recharge them, and you won't lose service during a power failure. They also deliver better sound quality and security than most cordless models, usually for substantially less money.

The Line on Lines
No matter what type of phone you choose, the first thing to consider is how many lines your business needs. If you usually work alone, you can probably get by with a single-line phone. If you're running a slightly larger business with just a few employees, you can now get a phone that will support up to four separate lines. Each line may in turn support more than one station, or extension, provided users are willing to share the same phone number.
Prices for multiline units vary widely depending on additional features, with better-equipped models typically going for $300 to $500. Bear in mind that the phone itself accounts for only part of the total cost of supporting multiple lines. Adding lines entails installation and maintenance charges from the phone company, not to mention a higher monthly phone bill.
If you think your company's communications needs are likely to grow beyond a few lines, consider a full-fledged business phone system. The first step up from multiline phones is a key system, which uses a central processing unit like a computer's to control and direct calls. The processor and other switching electronics are usually housed in a key service unit (KSU), a small cabinet installed between the lines coming in from the phone company and the individual phones. Like multiline phones, key systems allow any extension on the system to connect to any of the lines (or trunks) coming into your office.
Most key systems are sold by large network equipment suppliers such as Lucent and Nortel, as well as a few smaller specialty vendors. Prices for smaller systems designed to support fewer than 40 stations run between $1,000 and $4,000, with significant variations depending on the features and handsets included with the system.
Several manufacturers now sell simpler "KSU-less" systems that dispense with the central processing box by distributing the intelligence needed to manage the network over the individual phones themselves. Their lower prices and ease of installation make them more attractive to small businesses, but they tend to be less scaleable, with few models supporting more than four lines and 16 extensions.

The Multiphone
The trend in telephone equipment is toward products that combine multiple functions in a single device. Indeed, the characteristics of the phone itself are arguably less important than functions such as the ability to answer incoming calls and take messages. To handle these tasks you can choose between a voice-messaging service provided by your local phone company and an answering machine.
According to the most recent edition of the Yankee Group's Technologically Advanced Family survey, nearly three quarters of all U.S. households own some type of answering machine. While the majority of these are separate units, phones that include a built-in answering device account for a growing percentage of sales each year.
Like so many other communications products today, answering machines come in two basic flavors: analog and digital. Virtually all the analog machines on the market today use microcassettes to record incoming messages and outgoing greetings. Microcassettes succeeded an earlier generation of machines using full-sized cassettes because they helped conserve space. But the smaller cassettes also mean shorter recording times, poorer sound quality and less reliability.
The alternative: digital answering machines, which use memory chips like those found in your PC to record and store voice messages. Just which messages are captured in this way depends on the machine: Some hybrid units use chips only to carry an outgoing message (which tends to be brief), while longer incoming messages are stored on microcassette. All-digital machines save even more space than microcassettes and tend to be more reliable since they rely on a minimum of moving parts.
Digital technology also makes it possible to add features that can be especially helpful if you're managing your own office. The most important of these is the ability to operate multiple voice mailboxes which can be accessed through passwords. Messages stored on digital machines are stamped with the date and time they were received, and can be accessed, played back and deleted much more rapidly than those on a cassette.
Such features make digital machines the best choice for small offices where a hardware-based approach to answering systems is preferred. But within the digital category, sound quality and recording times tend to vary considerably from one brand and model to another, so it pays to try before buying. Most digital machines offer between 14 and 20 minutes of message time, although some higher-end units deliver up to an hour's worth.
Most of the advanced features available from digital answering machines are familiar to anyone who uses a voicemail system at work. Manufacturers began to incorporate these features because customers accustomed to corporate voicemail have come to expect them from their home-based answering systems. But if professional voicemail is what you're looking for, why not just subscribe to the voice messaging services (VMS) now offered by most local phone companies?
Several factors have curtailed widespread adoption of VMS, which the Yankee Group estimates is currently used by about 12 percent of homes in the U.S. The most obvious: the high installed base of answering machines. And most consumers prefer making a one-time hardware purchase instead of paying a $5 or $7 monthly service charge.
Despite these shortcomings, voice messaging can be quite effective for small businesses and home offices if combined with other services such as caller ID and call waiting. Caller ID displays, which show the telephone number (and sometimes the name) of the person calling you on a small LCD screen, have grown in popularity as more local phone companies roll out the service. Like answering machines, most of the caller ID displays in homes today are separate units that plug into a conventional telephone. But phones equipped with built-in displays are becoming more common, particularly from manufacturers hoping to tap the home-office and small-business markets.
To exercise the maximum control over the calls and messages flowing into your office, you may want to consider one of the advanced "screen phones" marketed by Nortel, Cidco and a few others. These phones are designed to merge multiple services into a single call-management solution that helps you juggle multiple callers. If, for example, you're using the phone to discuss business with a client and another caller tries to reach you, a call waiting tone alerts you to the second call. Once caller ID lets you know who the new caller is, you decide whether you want to interrupt your conversation or route the new call into a voice mailbox.

Among the Best
Designed with small-office users in mind, Nortel's Venture Three-Line Telephone ($299) also includes a full-duplex speakerphone and an LCD screen large enough to display names and numbers delivered via caller ID service or an on-board 200-name directory. An all-digital answering machine with 14 mailboxes is also available as an option. The Venture gives entrepreneurs room to grow through its Enhanced Feature Adaptor, an external module that provides such functions as music on hold, loudspeaker paging, and fax machine connection to as many as eight phones. (800) 466-7835 www.nortel.com

If you're happy with your current phone but still want to add the latest in network-based call management features, Cidco's DM80 Call Director Display Unit ($79) is an attractive alternative. The DM80 is an adjunct device that plugs into any phone to supply you caller ID, voicemail and call waiting, the same suite of functions usually packaged on expensive screen phones. (408) 779-1162 www.cidco.com

Positioned specifically for small and home-based offices, InteliData's 412ID Multi-Line KSU-less Phone can accommodate up to four incoming lines and 12 extensions. Priced at only $179, the 412D comes with a headset, caller ID, and a message-waiting indicator for telephone company-based voicemail. InteliData also sells one of the most affordable key systems on the market today, the IPS System, which is used in conjunction with a PC to network up to 16 extensions. Designed for maximum ease of installation and use, the IPS System has a base price of only $799, significantly less than comparable systems. (703) 834-8500 www.intelidata.com

Panasonic's new KX-TGM240B is the flagship model in a new line of gigarange cordless phones that use the 2.4GHz frequency to extend range and minimize echoes, delays and interference. According to Panasonic, the $349 phone combines 900MHz, 2.4GHz, and spread-spectrum technology to deliver an effective range nearly eight times greater than current 900MHz models. Other built-in features include full duplex speakerphone and an all-digital answering system. (201) 348-7000 www.panasonic.com

About 17,000 security professionals are expected to converge on Moscone Center in San Francisco today for this year's RSA Conference, one of the biggest cybersecurity trade shows in the world.

Cybersecurity "is getting worse as more and more devices go online," said Sandra Toms LaPedis, one of the conference organizers. "There's a need for the industry to come together and solve these tough problems."

Dozens of government officials and corporate executives are expected to speak, including Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, Palm and Numenta founder Jeff Hawkins and New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell, author of "The Tipping Point." Nobel laureate and former Vice President Al Gore is scheduled to speak on Friday, but his speech is closed to the media.

Hundreds of companies will exhibit new products designed to fix security problems. In advance of the conference, some have released reports on security flaws they've ferreted out that their products intend to fix.

AirDefense and AirTight Networks, two startups that compete to secure wireless networks, released studies revealing various security flaws. AirDefense scanned wireless networks in more than 1,000 government agencies and companies in San Francisco, although it didn't name them; AirTight has scanned wireless networks in airports worldwide, including San Francisco and San Jose.

VOIPshield Systems in Ottawa said it found more than 100 security flaws in Internet telephone systems from Cisco, Nortel and Avaya. It will be demonstrating at the conference how the products were hacked.

There also will be several panel discussions on cybersecurity and the government. On Wednesday, New York Times reporter Eric Lichtblau will lead a discussion of the story the Times broke on warrantless wiretapping by the Bush administration.

As problems with cybersecurity have grown over the years, so has the conference. Organizers expect attendance this year to set a record.

Most people who attend are technologists who handle information security for companies or government agencies - RSA is a place where they can discuss problems, debate solutions and look at new technology.

Even though many of the sessions are technical, it is also a place where the public can track their progress. In 2004, for example, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates announced a strategy to end spam.

That same year, retired Air Force Gen. John Gordon, an adviser to President Bush, said he couldn't figure out how to set up encryption on his own home wireless network and called on industry to make security products that were easier to use.

A big problem this year at the conference is data leakage - how to secure a database so information can't be stolen, how to develop software that can't be cracked, how to keep data away from outsiders and insiders who shouldn't have it.

"New classes of people are having to face these threats" without a good understanding of the problems, said Tim Mather, the conference's chief security strategist. "You have people (at companies) becoming information technology people and it's not the job description they signed up for."

Other hot courses will be electronic voting in this election year, identity management - how can you tell if the people you're talking to online are who they say they are - and the government's role in regulating security.

Many companies feel burdened with too many conflicting regulations, Mather said, but as the economy slows, their spending on security has leveled off, according to Forrester Research.

Companies want to know: "How do we do what we've been doing already but quicker and cheaper?" said Paul Stamp, an analyst at Forrester. The answer, he said, is to focus on protecting data.

Killexams : Shedding Light on Flexlume

When young Paddy Rowell Sr. first stepped into his father’s office at Flexlume on Main Street in Buffalo, NY, he asked where his own office would be. His father took Paddy to the window and, pointing to the installation truck parked next to the curb, said, “See that passenger seat right there? That’s your office.”
That was 60 years ago, and Rowell, now Paddy Sr., laughs about the education he got on the road; this after years spent in the factory, sweeping floors and playing step and fetch on Saturdays. “I was paid 25 cents an hour, and I’d go down the street to the White Tower Restaurant. I’d get two hamburgers for 5 cents each, a glass of milk for 5 cents, and a piece of pie for 10 cents. We’ve come a long way, don’t you think?”
Certainly the answer is yes, but for a company that was once so vast and busy making neon signs, it has become scaled-down and exclusive. Flexlume has gone from sheet metal marquees with letter cutouts, to neon, to Halogen-lit plexiglass sheets printed with company logos and graphics, as well as some restoration work these days.

The Early Days

Started as Wiley Brothers in 1904, by brothers Roy and Wallace Wiley. They held a patent to produce kiln-molded, white opal glass letters that were held in cutouts on the sheet metal sign face and illuminated from behind with incandescent light. “In the early 30’s neon came along, and Flexlume used neon light tubes as a way of outlining these signs. Banks, drive-ins, clubs and theaters were some of the earliest clients, according to Rowell, who also explained that the name Flexlume was a compound word derived from ‘flexible’ and ‘illumination’ used to describe the neon lighting tubes.
From St. Catherines, Ontario, to Military Road in Kenmore, New York, Flexlume started out in a few small buildings, and eventually built the brick structure now housing the Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center. In the 1920’s the Wiley brothers were the largest sign manufacturer in the world with five national locations and over 500 employees. “They rented signs all over the country, but when the depression hit, many of their customers couldn’t pay and the business went downhill,” Rowell said.
“The bank finally took over due to Flexlum’s outstanding debts. They kept the Wileys on, but only as figureheads, so the brothers left to start Wiley Brother’s Sheet Metal. The bank didn’t do well. They weren’t sign people,” Rowell offered. Then, in 1941, the government came in and, as part of the war effort, strapped and inventoried the company’s large supply of sheet metal used to make the signs. “They confiscated it for military purposes,” Rowell said. “Flexlume closed the next day.”

DSC_0022.jpg

A New Start

In 1944, Flexlume went up for auction, and Rowell’s father, who owned the White Sign Company at the time, bid and won, taking on all of Flexlume’s “good and bad customers in the bargain,” according to Rowell.
“My father bought this building from Joseph Schneider,” Rowell said, referring to the present Main Street location. “It used to be the Martha Washington Laundry.” That was back in the day when young Paddy Rowell used to climb ropes to install and service the signs his father’s company manufactured. He brings out a photograph of a newspaper clipping to illustrate this , wherein he is seen midway up the sign face, clinging to ropes. The caption reads: ” Paddy Rowell, The Human Fly”.
After the war, Rowell said that most of Flexlume’s work involved automobile dealers along with banks and theaters. Some of the more notable clients, with signs that many who have lived in Buffalo for a number of years will remember, include Tinney Cadillac, Pierce Arrow and Maxim Cadillac, as well as every incarmnation up to present of the Shea’s Buffalo sign.

DSC_0066.jpg

Today

Rowell brought all three of his sons into the business at some point. Paddy Jr. is the current president, Bruce was a glassblower and Paul works part time on the installation truck when he’s not wearing his other persona—that of Charlie the Butcher at a Wegmans grocery store.
There has been ongoing maintenance, such as the original sign on the Nortel Grill that Buffalo Rising Online reported on a few months back. They also renovated the Seneca Plumbing sign for the company’s 75th anniversary. Add to that the restoration of a 12-foot-long Jantzen bathing suit-styled swimmer that came from a motel down south, who in her day, let weary highway travelers know there was a refreshing pool to be enjoyed with a nights stay. Keeping the past alive, the Rowells have also donated retro signs to a sign museum in Cincinnati.
Flexlume now has around 10 employees between administrative and artistic personnel, along with an installation fleet that mans three crane trucks. As for modern day work, most of the new clients coming Flexlume’s way are looking for low-maintenance, high-quality, vandal proof signs that beckon to the general populace in a conspicuous, if less artistic way. It’s the nature of things.

DSC_0037.jpg

To answer Paddy Rowell’s question: We have come a long way, and much of what we’ve lost on the way was simply a matter of changing with the times.

Killexams : IPTV pioneer causes a ruckus

Although revenues are still a fraction of the global telecoms market, at the IPTV World Forum in London earlier this month there was plenty of optimism that just around the corner awaits a market of millions.

Triple play refers to a combination of wireless TV, internet and digital telephone services provided via broadband connections to the home using the new generation of wi-fi technology.

Western Europe currently has the largest number of IPTV subscribers of any region - 1.6 million - with France accounting for approximately half of them. Global customers are expected to double each year from 6.4m at the end of 2006 to nearly 50m by 2010, according to analysts Gartner.

Home internet and VOIP using wireless makes sense for consumers who want to move on from broadband cable and fixed line or mobile phones, but how many people are desperately waiting to get their TV piped via wireless into their bedrooms?

Well, they might do when the technology is sold as a package by your broadband carrier, and the technology provides consistent high-quality pictures and sound. In France, early adoption of IPTV by France Telecom and aggressive competition among players including Free and Neuf helped push up subscriptions.

Making the switch to IPTV happen was the challenge that inspired Selina Lo to found Ruckus Wireless, an IPTV pioneer, in 2004. At the IPTV World Forum in London last week, Ruckus Wireless was named Best Distributor of IPTV. According to Lo, the show has doubled in size since last year.

Earlier this year Lo attended the World Economic Forum in Davos and mingled with the world's top CEOs, which she says was an "amazing experience". The feeling was apparently mutual, with WEF's technology panel picking Ruckus Wireless as a "technology pioneer" for its "smart wi-fi" home networking technology.

Hong Kong-born Lo, who took her computer science degree at Berkeley, stands out in this male-dominated industry for being an Asian woman technology entrepreneur - the company website advertises her love of shoes, shopping and one-word answers. But her record for technology start-ups, industry awards and multi-billion dollar IPOs speaks for itself.

Ruckus's CEO and president has built a career and fortune by setting out to solve big problems. This time it is the following: "The problem all IPTV service providers have is the destructive customer experience when they get IPTV to the gateway. They start having to wire the set-top box to the DSL modem. Most people don't like that and there is a rejection rate of 30%," says Lo.

Then comes the pitch: "There are thousands of wi-fi players and IPTV service providers - it's a very competitive market. But we are the only one known to support video, voice and internet with a reliable signal that a consumer can set up at home without a complicated registration process. Once they take it out of the box and connect it up, it's ready to use."

Ruckus's biggest market is Europe, which is not as saturated with cable and satellite as the US. "Cable and satellite in the US are pretty well penetrated but that is not the case in Europe, so new cable is being installed with higher bandwidth. Satellite is not so popular in Europe either," Lo says

She says that Belgium's biggest telcom Belgacom took a "visionary position" in their approach to wireless at home. "They knew they had to make it [triple play wireless] a self-installing service otherwise people would not be interested. They now have 130,000 subscribers a year. You have to remember that when a provider has to install they can only do two jobs a day so it would take forever to do this number.

"Belgacom looked at our solutions - they plugged our router into their DSL gateway, and our adaptor into the set-top box. O2 telephone in the Czech Republic did the same." Ruckus are now in around 12 markets - the biggest being Italy and France. Its first customer was IPPC Hong Kong.

The market, of course, is not just about TV -internet and VOIP telephone are equally important. Fixed line and mobile phone telecom companies are losing minute usage to VOIP services, and small and medium businesses are leading the charge to VOIP. Last year around 58 percent of IP lines shipped went to medium-sized companies, while an increasing interest from small businesses saw them buy 18 percent of IP lines sold, according to IDC.

"There is a very competitive market for creating system infrastructure. Alcatel and Siemens now working on IPTV, and Nortel, Cisco and Ericsson are jumping in. We are just one player at the end of the broadband tunnel," says Lo.

But while wi-fi is becoming more popular, most consumers still haven't heard of triple play. Part of the reason for this is problems with the quality of the signal and the long lead time for the telcoms to test and market wi-fi products. Normal wi-fi antenna send a signal evenly in all directions and are susceptible to interference from other signals in the vicinity. In addition, the range of normal wi-fi is often very limited. The Ruckus technology is more like a beam with software that chooses the most efficient route to the VOIP phone, computer or TV set-top box. Lo describes it as "just like a torch compared to a lightbulb.

"Bluetooth, microwaves, cordless phones and a lot of consumer electronic household goods generate noise and interfere with signals. Most antenna in the market don't have a way of stopping the noise. We have created a smart signal that can get around obstacles in the home."

This is Lo's third start-up in the network communications field. The second, Alteon WebSystems, went public in 2000 and was sold to Nortel Systems for a cool $7.8 billion. The timing -just before the bursting of the dotcom bubble - was fortuitous. "Those were good times," says Lo wistfully.

Lo went from being Alteon's VP of marketing to become VP of Nortel Networks' content business unit following the acquisition. Her first start-up, Centillion, was sold to Bay Networks in 1994 for $150m, where she joined Bay Networks as a VP of marketing.

Lo tells the story of how, having quit Nortel Networks to "try out semi-retirement" the seed of the Ruckus idea was born when she decided to get a cable TV in her bedroom. "I had to get a guy to do it. It took six hours and they had to come back to fix it later. He had to run a wire through my ceiling." The experience was "tremendously irritating" and got her thinking. "I just started looking for telecoms companies doing wireless television. I found two guys developing the technology - William Kish and Victor Shrom - at an incubation research centre, with funding from Secoya Capital."

Secoya Capital is synonymous with the rise of Silicon Valley, having helped create most of the household names one associates with the 1990s digital boom - Yahoo, Google, Cisco, Paypal and many others. Lo met the technical founders and decided their ideas were worth funding. Major telecoms have been trialling the product, but progress is slow. "Practically every major telcom has IPTV in the lab, in home trials or in production. It takes a long time to work with the carriers. We have chosen a path that is a lot more difficult than working with retailers but hopefully the payback will be worth it."

She adds that Ruckus is talking to all the major telecom companies in the UK. The advantage of going with the carriers is that they can offer a ready-made package which removes the need to navigate through an electronics shop or online retailer and find the right package for your needs.

So far Ruckus has shipped around 100,000 units of branded technology and more than that number again as licensed technology under the Netgear brand for its routers and DSL gateway.

Lo, naturally, is optimistic. She expects company revenues to more than double in 2007 although going public "is not in our plans this year", she adds with the clear implication that it will be in future. "We are not Cisco yet, but we are on our way there."
