Optus will begin tests of the 4G network in the 700MHz and 2.5GHz spectrum bands in Sydney soon using yet-to-be-released handsets from HTC and Samsung.
Google joins IBM, NEC, Novell, Philips, Red Hat and Sony as a full member of the Open Invention Network open-source and Linux patent protection organization.
Optus has revealed for the first time that it has sold over 785,000 4G handsets since launching the network last year.
The Linux 3.9 kernel brings with it an SSD caching, improved performance for multi-threaded network server applications and a host of other features.
Microsoft is making generally available its Linux and Windows Server virtual machines, plus its Azure Virtual Network, both of which are key to making Azure competitive with Amazon Web Services.
Users who have switched from 3G to long-term evolution handsets and network are satisfied with the speed of connection, but complain that coverage is still lacking.
The latest major Linux kernel release is here and it includes features that ARM developers and network administrators will love
Long-term evolution (LTE) subscribers in country up due to available handsets and nationwide network access, with figure expected to double by end-2012, says report.
The Linux Foundation's exec director saluted Linux distribution leader Red Hat for reaching $1 billion in revenues but pointed out that the overall Linux industry is worth many, many billions today.In a recent post, LF Director Jim Zemlin said the "collective investment" in Linux, at $10 billion, is freely available and that the resulting "network effect" has generated billions of Linux users and billions of dollars transacted on Linux systems daily.
The Open Invention Network, a Linux patent protection consortium, is expanding its defense to related open-source programs such as KVM, Git, OpenJDK, and WebKit. Mobile Linux distributions like Android, MeeGo, and webOS will also soon be expressly protected.
Following up on an excellent tip given in a comment to my previous post (thanks sahilahuja), and after quite a bit of browsing and reading, I have quite a bit of interesting new information about the Acer Aspire One 522. First, and most important, it turns out that the problem with it hanging on Linux boot has something to do with the wired and wireless network interfaces, and not getting them initialized correctly.
Its first foray into the small business Network Attached Storage (NAS) market, Western Digital's new WD Sentinel DX4000 stands out mainly by virtue of its use of Windows Server 2008 R2 Essentials rather than Linux, as on most other NAS boxes.The hardware is pretty unremarkable, Western Digital opting for a dual-core Intel D525 Atom to drive its appliance supported by 2GB of DDR3 RAM.
Compelling and affordable services and near-ubiquitous network coverage more important than price to entice consumers in emerging markets to switch to low-end 3G handsets, observers say.
It's no doubt that one of the leaders for network equipment is Cisco Systems. Newer Cisco devices are starting to use what Cisco calls its "IOS-XE" operating system, which is a customized flavor of GNU/Linux.
I dug up some notes from my own archives, and decided to post information on setting up a network bandwidth emulator with Linux. And what would anybody want to use this for?
Cisco, the networking giant and Twitter, the social networking company, has joined the Linux patent protection organization, Open Invention Network, along with a host of other companies.
Mobile handsets and tablets could become cyberattackers' only means to steal organizational data or disrupt network traffic but remain complementary entry points for now, say Trend Micro execs.
No point pushing use of such handsets to mitigate network pressure crunch as consumers will still choose apps-friendly, feature-rich devices that typically consume more bandwidth, note market observers.
Atlanta-based power management technology company JouleX, which sells an agentless network energy manager by the same name, has updated its software (JouleX Energy Manager version 2.5) to offer better integrate with VMware and better support for Linux and Macintosh client computers.
