At Computex 2018, Killer Networking is debuting Wireless xTend to improve the home networking experience. Here’s what you need to know. What is Killer Networking, and what do they offer? For the uninitiated, Killer Networking is a subsidiary of Rivet Networks, focused on manufacturing gaming-centric networking hardware included in high-end motherboards, gaming PCs and gaming laptops. The main feature that attracts people to Killer hardware is in its network prioritization features. Killer hardware will prioritize gaming and other low-latency traffic over, say, large file downloads or streaming video, which don’t need nearly as much prioritization as real-time gaming does. How does Wireless xTend change things?
Chances are, somewhere in your home, there‘s a tangled mess of wires and blinking lights that make your Wi-Fi work. Your router likely isn’t the most sightly thing, and you probably hide it behind a curtain or under a bookcase—out of sight. Same as we all do honestly.

While Glenn Greenwald doesn’t specifically implicate any networking companies, it would be safe to assume that companies like Cisco, Juniper, Brocade, Dell, HP and many more. This is in the face of the fact that the US government had been criticizing the use of Huawei networking hardware due to the beliefs that the Chinese would be presenting a security risk to the US. They essentially claimed that Huawei was bugging their networking equipment for the Chinese government and that their
Last week ARM invited a group of journalists and analysts to Austin Texas to hear about their server, mobile, and wearable developments. ARM and their partners presented in-depth explanations of their version of the ARM architecture. On the first day of the conference, HP’s Dwight Barron gave an overview of their Moonshot system. They have been refining the specifications since its late 2009 inauguration. Moonshot’s design differs from the traditional servers which have been the general-purpose workhorses of the data center. These boxes have proved to be jacks-of-all-trades, able to run operations for organizations of every shape and size. They started with proprietary operating systems and a
Recently, I received a report from TXP Corporation about the growth of FTTH (Fiber To The Home) market in the North America. According to their report, US now has 3.3 million households that have access to the fastest Internet connection (25, 50 Mbps) in the North America. In the report, it states that the number of installed FTTH households grew by 33% between Q4’07 and Q1’08, with continuous growth between Q1’08 and Q2’08, and same pattern even increasing in Q3.

In a presentation given by Dr. Albert Yeh, VP of OvisLink Corporation, some harsh words were spoken on the upcoming network standards. OvisLink Corporation is mostly known as the umbrella company for the AirLive brand, progressive networking brand that is gaining a lot of ground on emerging markets, thanks to innovative products such as WMU-6500FS, device more know as the pr0n box, “smart” hard drive enclosure that includes integrated BitTorrent, iTunes, e-Donkey and similar clients.
