At the end of last year, my fellow inventor Gerhard Kramer (who is now working at the Technical University in Munich, Germany) and I were honored with an Edison Patent Award from the Research and Development Council of New Jersey – for a recent patent in the VDSL2 Vectoring space. For me, this award recognizes the pioneering work of our entire Vectoring team, and highlights how much we’ve enjoyed helping to bring this exciting technology from imagination to reality.

Until recently, there was an expectation that the only way to meet the demand for increased bandwidth – to support services like video-on-demand and high-definition gaming – would be over fiber optics. With VDSL2 Vectoring technology, however, you can get to fast faster: you don’t have to wait for fiber optics to become economically viable to start getting high speeds today.

The idea is to leverage the old infrastructure that goes all the way back to the telephone – and reuse it in a more powerful way to carry modern services over time-tested telephone wires.

In DSL technology, you transmit data signals (Internet, video) over a copper wire; one wire might go to your home, and there’s another signal on another wire carrying a different video into your neighbor’s home. Some of the electromagnetic signals from one wire will couple into the other wire, however, and make it harder for them to transmit data. That phenomenon is called “crosstalk”.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
