ZDnet, April 18th 2017

Getting a Wi-Fi network up and running is easy, but putting in place frustration-free Wi-Fi takes thought, planning, and new hardware

"Regular readers will know that I've been busy kitting out the PC Doc HQ with a new Wi-Fi system. The old one was old, tired, and kludgy, with too much of it fabri-cobbled together using old gear, with routers hooked up to routers, and a mish-mash of Wi-Fi extenders thrown into the mix for good measure.

17 Apr 2017 Infrared Much Better Than Wi-Fi [62590]
Network World, April 17th 2017

Using open-air light waves instead of radio will solve bandwidth congestion resulting from internet-connected devices, researchers say

"A few special 'light antennas' dotted around a room would provide significantly more bandwidth for internet-connected devices than traditional Wi-Fi, says a Dutch scientist. Wi-Fi's days could be numbered if the technology works as suggested.

With this new Wi-Fi replacement system that's been proposed, benign, infrared rays of light emitted from ceiling-mounted transmitters would beam bandwidth-intensive streams of data at smartphones and laptops within the room. And each ray of light could provide 40 gigabits per second, says Joanne Oh, a Ph.D. researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in a news article on the university's website..."

16 Apr 2017 5 Ways Your Company Can Benefit From Using A VPN [62298]
ComputerWorld, April 7th 2017

Increasing your company's security doesn't have to be timely or expensive

"Is your company using a VPN -- or just letting it all hang out?" asks Andre Bourque in ComputerWorld.

"A VPN, or a virtual private network, is a technology that lets you create a secure network connection while using a public network. Using one might seem like something as obvious as 'the internet' as a tool that businesses should have in the bag.

And with security issues like Wi-Fi spoofing, Firesheep and more, it's more important than ever to keep your online activity safeguarded. Plus, with telecommuting and virtual offices becoming more and more mainstream, employees are taking care of business from just about every corner of the world, and often relying on unsecured public networks in the process..."
