View Resource 10 Gigabit Ethernet Technology Overview White Paper

Released by the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Alliance in May 2002, this white paper discusses 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) technology and the development of the forthcoming standard. 10GbE is ten times faster than the current support for one gigabit per second, and it has the potential to be a dominant form of network technology. The report summarizes some of the key similarities and differences between...
View Resource The New Net: Grid Services for Distributed System Integration

This paper appeared in the June 2002 issue of the IEEE Computer journal. It discusses the evolution of the Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA), a standard that will define common mechanisms for use in different grid computing applications. Because grid technologies are being used more often for scientific research and intense computations, a universal set of semantics is needed for quicker,...
View Resource HyperTransport Technology: Simplifying System Design

HyperTransport technology is an architecture that allows data transfer between chips in excess of ten gigabytes per second. This white paper from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), released in October 2002, considers the potential of HyperTransport in designing an input/ output bus for a microprocessor. The technology, while accommodating high speed demands, requires relatively little power, making it...

Cooltown is Hewlett-Packard's ambitious vision of a pervasive computing environment, where mobile services, Internet, and intelligent devices are intertwined to make an omnipresent networked experience. This vision of the future makes up a high profile research effort to develop technologies that will enable such a connected world. The program's homepage has a great deal of information about...
View Resource Light Reading: 10-Gigabit Ethernet

Published on March 18, 2003, this report provides an excellent insight into the expanding 10-Gigabit Ethernet technology. The author starts by explaining what 10-Gigabit Ethernet is and what applications are likely to be the first to take advantage of its advanced, high-speed protocol. A market analysis examines current trends of the technology's growth and suggests what the future might hold. A...
View Resource Sharable

At some time or another, we all need to share files, images, documents, and more. You can access all of these files easily with Sharable. This application uses existing Wi-Fi networks to transfer files in a way that's a bit less involved than using an Internet-based service or a cable. The site includes detailed information on how to use the application with any number of devices. This version is...
