Each wireless connection point requires, notwithstanding the name, a cable with a connection to the Internet. But these problems are now being solved by Andreas Kassler, professor of computer science at Karlstad University in Sweden, and his research team.
This research has been underway for a couple of years at the university. Now they are launching collaboration with Deutsche Telekom Laboratories to test new technology. During the year the technology will be tested in Vänern House at Karlstad University and after that in a real urban environment in Berlin. These tests will primarily involve IP telephony.
"We are researching entirely wireless connection points, or Mesh nodes, that is, the points where users connect their computers to the Internet," says Andreas Kassler.
The idea behind the new technology is that the nodes communicate with each other instead of each node having to have its own connection to the Internet. Today, however, this technology poses a problem, since the capacity of the networks drops rapidly. The connection nodes have a hard time communicating with several nodes at the same time. This problem will be eradicated by the research being pursued by Andreas Kassler's team. Karlstad University has one of the first experimental environments in Sweden in which each node can use several network cards and communicate on different frequencies simultaneously. This means that the capacity is the same throughout the network.
Telephone and Internet operators are interested in this technology since it makes it less costly to build networks. This should ultimately lead to lower costs for users, according to Andreas Kassler.Andreas Kassler, Professor in telematics (datavetenskap)

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
