Wi-Fi 6: What You Need to Know about This New Standard

2Wi-Fi is getting faster and better, many routers are already accessible with chips using draft 802.11ax Wi-Fi specifications, but the new standard should be adopted by December 2019, which will lead to a wave of updated devices with new wireless capabilities. They will help create the next generation of networks with less delays and greater speed.

The 802.11ax standard, or “high-efficiency wireless”, will now be called Wi-Fi 6. This is a new standard provided by the Wi-Fi Alliance, and the previous generations are now known as Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) and Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac). It is expected that a new type of marking will soon appear on the devices, as shown below.

1

Technically, Wi-Fi 6 will have a single-user data transfer rate, which is 37% faster than 802.11ac, but more importantly, the updated specifications will offer 4 times the bandwidth per user on a wireless network with a large number of devices. It is also more energy efficient, which should lead to an increase in battery autonomy. To achieve these improvements in the 802.11ax standard, many changes have been implemented, including some multi-user technologies adopted from the cellular industry, namely OFDMA and MU-MIMO, technologies that significantly increase throughput and performance due to a greater number of simultaneous connections and more advanced ways to work with data bandwidth.

As already mentioned, Wi-Fi 6 is expected to have a more direct effect in areas where networks are heavily overloaded, and ultimately help lay the foundation for the expected future of intelligent infrastructure (for example, the Internet of things). Along with solving problems with a huge number of devices and network deployment arising as IoT is deployed, Wi-Fi 6 will be adapted to meet the ever-growing demand for higher data rates for several users. Wi-Fi 6 is based on 802.11ac with about or even more 50 updated features, although not all of them will be included in the final specification. Here are some of the expected achievements of Wi-Fi 6:

  • Higher bandwidth per user for virtual reality andultra-HD streaming
  • Support more concurrent data streams with increased bandwidth
  • Spread spectrum (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, eventually 1 GHz and 6 GHz frequencies are expected)
  • Splitting spectrum into several frequencies, this will provide wider channels for data transmission
  • Improved performance (4 times) at maximum distance of the access point
  • Better performance/reliability in outdoor and multipath (cluttered) conditions

Wi-Fi 6 also introduces support (OFDMA) for incoming and outgoing communication lines, a modulation scheme that equates to a multi-user version of OFDM. It will reduce latency, increase throughput and efficiency, allowing 30 users to simultaneously use the channel.

Conclusion

Designed to replace both 802.11n and 802.11ac as the next WLAN standard, 802.11ax or Wi-Fi 6 is being developed to provide significant improvements in network efficiency and throughput for dense locations with moderate improvements in peak data rates that will be better supported on multiple devices simultaneously.

Zyxel Nebula Cloud Network Management System: Equipment

maxresdefaultThe network infrastructure of small companies usually consists of a router, switches, and access points. Of course, it also happens that all of them are collected in a single device – a wireless router, but in this article we will consider a larger version of the local network.

With the growth of the number of devices, the question arises about the convenience of infrastructure management. If they are not related to each other, then the administrator may need to perform some configuration operations individually on each device, which requires more time and can potentially lead to errors. In addition, the requirements for staff qualifications are also increasing. At the same time, the use of “large” network management systems does not fit into the organization’s budget or limits the choice of equipment.

The company Zyxel, a well-known manufacturer of network equipment, presented the Nebula system (its version of solving the problem of centralized management and control) last year. This product is the Cloud service for working with network equipment of the company, which can be used for networks of different scales from one small office to a company with several branches or offices.

First of all, it is worth saying a few words about security issues. Still, when it comes to Cloud products, many users care about the confidentiality of their data. Of course, if the company’s policy does not allow the transfer of any information to the third parties, the Clouds may not be suitable. However, in the modern world, many services are implemented in this way, including e-mail, instant messengers, data exchange systems, and so on, which can significantly reduce their costs and at the same time provide the necessary reliability and performance. So in this case we can talk about administrative restrictions rather than technical ones. In addition, it is no secret that SMB enterprises are completely in a situation where the system administrator is not a full-time employee of the company or these functions are outsourced to a third-party company. Therefore, Cloud implementation can be considered just one of the characteristics of the solution in question and take into account the pros and cons of this approach. As for the question of the dependence of the system on availability of the Internet access in the office, here it can be argued that modern business without the Internet is practically inoperable and providing reliable access to the network does not depend on the network infrastructure management system.

Equipment

Among the equipment supported by the system today are security gateways, switches, and access points. Herewith, the device is hybrid and can be controlled either through Cloud or locally. We will not consider in detail the products used for publication in this article, but we will briefly describe their technical capabilities.

Zyxel NSG100 Cloud Gateway

In total, the lineup of gateways contains four models, differing mainly in overall performance and a set of ports. Of these, NSG100 is the second one in the line and is capable of providing up to 450 Mbps through a firewall and up to 150 Mbps via VPN. An external power supply unit (12 A 2.5 A), rack mount angles, rubber feet, console cable, brief instructions, warranty card are included in the delivery set of the gateway.

Zyxel GS1920-8HPv2 Hybrid Switch

There are usually rarely any special requirements for switches in the SOHO/SMB segment. But the GS1920v2 series is interesting in that it combines Smart capabilities and PoE/PoE+ support, which simplifies the use of network equipment such as access points and IP video cameras. The delivery package consists of brief instructions, a set of fasteners, rubber feet, and a power cable (the power supply unit is built-in).

Zyxel NAP102 Cloud Access Point

After gateways and switches, local access points are prevalent in local networks, without which it is not easy to imagine a modern office. Zyxel offers several product series to solve this problem. Zyxel NAP102 is the youngest in the line of products managed exclusively through Nebula Cloud. The package includes a power supply unit (12 V 1 A), a set of fasteners (frame, two variants of dowels and screws), instructions, a couple of leaflets.

Zyxel NWA1123-AC Pro Hybrid Access Point

In addition to access points with work only through Cloud, there are hybrid products with the NebulaFlex technology in the company’s catalog, in particular Zyxel NWA1123-AC Pro. The device comes complete with a mount, power injector with cable, network cable, and documentation. The case of matte white plastic has a diameter of 20 cm and a height of 3.5 cm. The model is equipped with a hardware antenna configuration switch, which allows to provide optimal modes in the case of mounting both on the ceiling and on the wall.

We hope that you received all necessary details about Zyxel Nebula and its equipment.

Money on Blockchain, or All Finances in One Mobile Application

ReccurrentIn January 2019, a new mobile application was released, with the help of which the user can simultaneously manage all his/her bank accounts. And not only accounts: Recurrent technology allows you to quickly and cheaply transfer money, open a business around the world, and invest.

Open an account without leaving the couch

Recurrent is, first of all, a convenient system for managing bank accounts. Even if you do not have an account, you can open it with this application in minutes. It does not matter where the user is located: the platform unites tens of the largest banks around the world, and you can create an account in any of them.

You do not need to go anywhere to use services, for example, Swiss banks, which are famous for their reliability. It is enough to download and install the application, take a picture of the passport, take a picture of yourself – and the verification process is completed. The banks that have a contract with Recurrent will not require anything else.

Business without borders and barriers

Not only that with Recurrent you will not have to leave the country, you don’t even need to know foreign languages because in the application interface, all information is displayed in the user’s language. A few clicks and that’s all, you can transfer money to a newly-opened account. Moreover, if you want to send rubles from Russia, the built-in converter will easily convert them into euros or Swiss francs at an adequate exchange rate.

In the same way, a company opens abroad, quickly and without the need of personal presence. The application provides the most up-to-date information on the legal and financial aspects of running a business or storing funds in a particular country of the world. This will allow the user to take into account all the nuances in advance: consider tax privileges, calculate the exact return on bank deposits, etc.

Transfer money – fast and almost free

Recurrent has many useful features. But perhaps one of the main advantages of this application, focused on both individual and legal entities, is the ability to quickly transfer any sums of money between banks around the world. Thanks to the use of the blockchain technology, remittances have become instant. In this case, the commission, which does not depend on the volume of the transaction, will be only 50 cents. For comparison, “classic” international banking transactions take from a few days to a week. The minimum commission at the same time is a few percent of the amount sent.

Money can not only be sent to a bank account, but also transferred to any user of the system. This individual is free to choose to leave money in a personal Recurrent account or withdraw it to one of its accounts. And soon it will be even easier to withdraw cash. In the near future there will be debit and credit cards Recurrent. Then the money can be cashed out at any ATM.

Security questions

How safe is it to keep your savings in Recurrent? The basis of the application is a decentralized blockchain network, much more resistant to cracking than the accounts of the above-mentioned Swiss banks. The chain of many separate independent servers ensures that no one can access the account without having a password. Judge for yourself: for 10 years of Bitcoin existence, no transaction has been hacked. At the same time, about 10 thousand hacks of ordinary bank accounts occur every day. So, nothing threatens the means of users and their personal data.

Application development prospects

Recurrent is the first similar system available to a wide range of users. At first, the platform was conceived as a tool for remote management of companies and their accounts. But over time, the project has grown into something more. Now the development team is evolving the investment direction of the project. Soon, new features will appear in Recurrent that will allow the users to trade exchange assets (stocks, etc.). The promising cryptocurrency market will not be ignored either: in the application, you can buy Bitcoins and other financial assets based on the blockchain system.

Two Main Questions about Microsoft Client Access License (CAL): What Is It? and Why Does It Need?

1In organizations, as a rule, one or several servers are used on which Windows Server is installed. There are also some services (SQL server for databases, Exchange server for mail, calendars, etc.) that are used by employees. To make the use of IT infrastructure legal, it is necessary to have licenses for both servers and clients.

What is a client license?

A client license (or CAL – Client Access License) gives the users the legal right to access the Microsoft server software for Windows itself, SQL server, Exchange server. By itself, the license does not give the individuals and devices the right to connect to the server. For this purpose, each user or device must have a client license.

Server manufacturers who distribute a software with servers can supply the client access licenses. At the same time, the CALs purchased with the server provide the same rights as similar ones purchased separately from equipment. But many people do not know that Microsoft no longer delivers the client access licenses with Windows Server licensed through the OEM channel.

Types of client licenses

The client licenses are of two types, and depending on the work organization in the company (whether the employees use several devices or, on the contrary, different people work alternately for some devices), you can significantly optimize costs by choosing the appropriate type.

User CALs

image1Depending on the number of users, you buy the CAL for each employee. It does not matter how many devices are used by the workers for whom you bought the licenses. It makes sense to acquire the CALs by the number of users if your company’s employees need access to the corporate network from several different devices or if you do not know from which particular devices they will access. They are also beneficial in cases where the organization has more devices than users.

Device CALs

image2Depending on the number of devices, you buy the licenses for each device that accesses the server. It does not matter how many users work with a licensed device. The device CALs can reduce costs and simplify administration in companies where several employees can use one device, for example, when working in several shifts.

In a large organization can be multiple servers. It is useful to know that having the CAL for a user (or a device) allows him/her to legally work with any of them.

Do you need CALs if users/devices do not connect directly to the Microsoft server software?

A company may use a specific server product for personnel management, accounting, etc., with its own licensing system. If this product itself accesses the Microsoft’s server software, for example, SQL Server, then this scheme is called multiplexing, and for legal use, you need a CAL (in this example, SQL Server CAL) by the number of real users/devices.

Apple Never Ceases to Surprise: Novelties That Will Amaze Even Sophisticated Consumers

On March 25, 2019, Apple held its first press conference this year at which the company demonstrated its new products. There were a lot of rumors around the presentation, the main of which were related to the release of the iPad mini and Air tablets along with the new version of AirPods. However, Apple declared its new gadgets a week before the event. And the company did it without any preparation, it just sent press releases to journalists. Consequently, when the presentation began, Tim Cook pointed out that the whole press conference was devoted to new company services.

But let’s take a quick look at the new Apple gadgets.

A week before the event, Apple announced new gadgets. Three days in a row, one after another, the company introduced the new iPad, iMac, and AirPods. First, the new iPad mini and the iPad Air were shown, which received the A12 processors and the support of the 1st generation Apple Pencil stylus. The Mini comes in the same design as its predecessor four years ago, and Air got a 10.5-inch screen, like last year’s iPad Pro. The cost of Mini starts from $515, and Air – from $670.

iMac received only the updated hardware without any redesign. So, iMac 21.5 is now equipped with the 8th generation Intel Core processor. Also, Apple will begin to release a version of this monoblock with a video card Radeon Pro Vega. iMac 27 is equipped with the 6th and 8th processors of the 9th generation. The iMac 21.5 cost is about $1,680, iMac 27 – $2,380.

AirPods received only a new processor, thanks to which the headset time during a conversation increased by 50%. They also received the function of calling voice assistant Siri using voice. At the same time, a wireless charging case for AirPods appeared in the market, which was announced in 2017. The cost of new headphones with a standard case is $210, and with a new case – $265. You can also buy it separately for $100.

Apple & a Subscription to Games and Magazines

pic_c7140512d4017bd96d50a1be5102b2b2

The Apple News application will include a News+ subscription, which allows the user to access the articles in more than 300 different magazines with a monthly fee of $10. Along with this, the articles will be available in online publications with a paid subscription (i.e. The Wall Street Journal). This is a peculiar restructuring of the old application – Newsstand, in which the individual could buy new issues and had to manually subscribe to magazines of interest. The subscription cost is $10 per month; the first month of use is free. Apple claims that the total cost of subscriptions for all media available in News+ is about $8,000. In addition, the company was announced the Apple News application in the UK, Australia, and Canada at the end of 2019.

The Apple Arcade subscription gives the user access to more than 100 exclusive games. The company didn’t disclose any details, even the cost of the subscription, it only demonstrated parts from various projects. Konami and Sega are among the game developers for this new service. But it will be possible to play on the iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV, and in the autumn of 2019, a subscription will be launched in more than 150 countries.

Apple & a Credit Card

The company has presented the credit card – Apple Card, which can be issued by any owner of the iPhone. There is no a service charge. At once, the users of Apple Card will receive a daily cashback of 3% of the purchase amount at Apple stores, 2% for purchases via Apple Pay, and 1% – via a physical card. Nonetheless, it works only in the USA, the company did not say anything about the appearance the card in other countries.

Apple & an Online Cinema with Exclusive Shows

pic_3a4699dc93cca5a767b0fd2b7a39fac7

Most of the presentation was devoted to the new streaming service Apple TV+ with exclusive movies and TV shows. The projects of Steven Spielberg (who previously spoke out against Netflix), Jay Jay Abrams, Damien Chazelle, and other directors were announced. Famous actors, including Steve Carrell, Reese Witherspoon, and Jason Momoa, spoke about the shows available on TV+ where they will be filmed.

Along with this, Apple has completely updated the Apple TV app. It will be available on macOS and on TVs by Samsung, Sony, LG, and Vizio. With this application, you can watch the shows of HBO, Showtime, Starz, and CBS channels, as well as streaming services like Amazon Prime and Hulu. A new Apple TV app will launch with a subscription to channels and streaming services in May 2019, and TV+ will be available in the autumn of 2019 in more than 100 countries.

It is an interesting fact that Apple has already tried to present their own shows. In 2016, Apple bought the rights from CBS to the Carpool Karaoke rubric in the American show – The Late Late Show with James Corden. The first episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series was released in August 2017, 21 episodes were produced during the first season. The second season of the show began in October 2018, and at the moment there are 18 episodes.

Also, in June 2017, Apple launched the Planet of the Apps show, in which the developers had a minute to tell the jury about their application and convince them of the importance of their product. If at least one of the judges agrees to listen to the idea, the developer was given more time for the presentation. In total there were 10 episodes, after which the show was closed.

As you can see, Apple can surprise. The year 2019 has just begun, so many new products await us. To be continued…
