I wonder how many CRS-3's it would take to simultaneously stream Avatar in 3D to every man, woman and child in China.

More on building a "5G" wireless R&E cellphone network
By Bill St. Arnaud | March 9, 2010

I would like to thank a lot of people who responded to my original posting on this subject who provided additional information. As I mentioned in my previous blog R&E networks are ideally positioned for deployment of these next generation wireless mobile networks as they have the extensive large bandwidth capability to backhaul the data from the wireless hotspot at universities and open access community networks.
[...]
5G wireless networks should not be confused with a similar cellphone standard called UMA. Several universities have installed something called Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) , sometimes integrated with unified messaging services. UMA is said to provide roaming and handover between GSM, UMTS, Bluetooth and 802.11 networks. It is largely focused on voice roaming as opposed to data roaming applications. But this is largely a telco cell phone standard that is hideously complex and not recommended for R&E networks.

Dare We Aim for Terabit Ethernet?

Craig Matsumoto | Light Reading | March 5, 2010

The next speed grade of Ethernet is only at the beer-and-pizza stage, but discussion is already heating up over whether the jump to Terabit Ethernet should be a consideration. That would represent a tenfold increase over 100-Gbit/s Ethernet, continuing Ethernet's tradition of leaping forward by factors of 10.

BM in this somewhat dated, yet still relevant, interview discusses standards divergence beyond the 100G tipping point, resulting in proprietary developments on the "line" side, mainly, and an eventual convergence of proprietary approaches into new T-bit standards... down the road.

From the Desk Lamp to the Desktop?
09 Mar 2010 | OFC/NFOEC

[cf: FAComments: #msg-24502571 ]

WASHINGTON - (Business Wire) In the future, getting a broadband connection might be as simple as flipping on a light switch. In fact, according to a group of researchers from Germany, the light coming from the lamps in your home could one day encode a wireless broadband signal.

"The advantage is that you'd be using light that is already there," says Jelena Vucic of the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich-Hertz-Institute in Germany. Vucic and her colleagues have found a way to get the most from this synergy of illumination and information and will be presenting their findings during the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC), which will take place March 21-25 in San Diego.

As of now, the majority of wireless in homes and businesses is achieved through a radio-frequency WiFi connection. But WiFi has limited bandwidth, and it's unclear where to find more in the already-crowded radio spectrum. By contrast, visible-frequency wireless has all the bandwidth one could want. The signal would be generated in a room by slightly flickering all the lights in unison. No one would be bothered by this because the rate of modulation would be millions of times faster than a human eye can see. Since visible light can't go through walls like radio, there would be no unwanted interference from stray signals and less worry of outside hackers.
