Math breakthrough could lead to more efficient data transmission

The best possible q-analogs of the codes can be useful for more efficient data transmission. Image credit: Geralt. More than three decades ago, mathematicians at the University of Mainz in Germany began to develop a theory that codes could be presented at a level one rung higher than sequences made up of zeros and ones: […]

Facebook hits 20 Gbps in internet drone data transmission tests

Facebook has managed to transmit data at nearly 20 Gbps between two Southern California towers during testing of a key technology for its plans to deliver internet service to rural areas using drones. The tests were carried out earlier this year and used frequencies in the so-called E-band, a group of millimeter wave frequencies between […]
