#LowTechLabLondon2016

#LowTechLabLondon2016 is a project developed by Raúl Marroquín and coordinated by Daniela Medina Poch for the Educational Program of the Saatchi Gallery that will take place on January 15th, 16th and 17th of 2016.

“‘LowTech means technology that is cheap or free.”
James Wallback, LowTech Manifest for The Next 5 Minutes conference in Amsterdam, March 1999.

This experiment is inspired in the role artists have had in the development of technologies and innovation from very early stages. To mention a few, alchemy in the Middle Ages, multidisciplinary advancements throughout the Renaissance and more recently during the second half of the XXth Century and the first decade of this millennium: Video of the 1960’s and 1970’s, cable television of the 1980’s and 1990’s (USA & Canada and later in the Netherlands and Continental Europe) digital communications of the first decade of the 2000’s up to the present with user information and communication platforms, internet, streaming mobile, social media, augmented reality, etc.

As Klaus Fruchtnis mentions: “LowTech applied to communications has given the possibility of having a more exhaustive control in the management of information.”

Today artists continue to play a crucial role in the development of hardware, software and applications. The last four decades are full of examples; to mention a few: “Music Video” is based in the progress and achievements of video artists in the 1960 – 1980’s, video and media art have also influenced audio visuals in education, news gathering and journalism, activism and, last but not least, the advertisement industry.

#LowTechLabLondon2016 is a three day lab that makes use of LowTech, user and discarded technologies coupled with the repurposing of existing hardware and other facilities. It involves those present at the Educational Space of the Saatchi Gallery taking part from tabletop stations devised to interact in one-to-one and one-to-few engagements, as well as remote contributors from abroad, via social media: WhatsApp, Illustrated Twitter, SnapChat, video conferencing and live streams.

The aim of #LowTechLabLondon2016 is to generate a brief, concise and powerful event, that will include artists, students (PCA, Paris and Universidad Nacional, Bogotá, and others) musicians, writers, stage actors and directors, academics, researchers, journalists, politicians and designers realising artworks, workshops, tutorials, experiments: successes and failures, processes, interviews and discussions, presentations, discussions, performances and recitals, as well as urban bootcamps, klutges, scale models and prototypes either live or transmitted from other locations in London, the continent and the Americas.

One of the goals of the lab is to monitor the developments of LowTech throughout the last 50 years and how it has been redefined through the beginning of the second half of the XXth century. From low quality and low resolution, evolving into current user technologies were, for instance, average phone cameras are better than a betacam of 30 years ago, the LowTech have expanded and transformed into user technology.

Additional to the activities taking place at the Educational Space and taking into account the historical past of the area: Kings Road, the Punk Movement, etc, the lab includes works realised outdoors on locations such as streets, parks, shops, bars and terraces near the location of the gallery.

Social Media plays an important role in the daily coverage of the experiment: Everything will be streamed via Periscope, LiveStream, YouTube Live and ephemeral platforms like SnapChat.
A final publication will round up the event.

This event is produced in collaboration with PCA Master’s students in Transdisicplinary New Media.

HOMEGRID FORUM ADVANCES ITS C&I PROGRAM AS INDUSTRY ADOPTION OF G.hn-MIMO GROWS

image001.jpg
News Highlights:
·         G.hn-MIMO is now an ITU-T Approved standard
·         MIMO improves coverage and data rate of G.hn PLC networks in difficult noise environments and so helps the delivery of multiple, high-quality multimedia streams
·         HomeGrid Forum has added MIMO certification to its C&I program

 

HomeGrid Forum announced that it has added certification for state-of-the-art PLC Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) to  its C&I test suite for G.hn. The new G.hn-MIMO standard for PLC was recently approved by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU-T), known officially as Recommendation ITU-T G.9963.

 

The addition of MIMO to the family of G.hn standards provides increased noise immunity and can nearly double throughput. With MIMO, all powerline outlets in the home can now consistently provide high quality of service, meeting Service Provider needs with regard to the simultaneous distribution of multiple high-definition video streams throughout the home.

 

G.hn-MIMO is the first global standard to define MIMO capabilities for PLC. With MIMO, past PLC challenges, such as extreme noise impairments, no longer have any significant impact on multimedia streams. In addition to this improved noise immunity, MIMO can significantly increase the coverage and data rate of G.hn PLC networks. With MIMO technology in their network, the consumer can continue to enjoy a high quality of experience even when the G.hn PLC network encounters  low-grade power strips, EMI filters, and surge protectors; and must contend with common powerline noise sources such as a plugged-in mobile phone charger. Consumers no longer have to worry about which power outlet to use for their PLC network.

 

G.hn momentum has been growing since the standard’s approval by ITU-T in 2010. Since then, system-on-chip (SoC) manufacturers have been busily developing chipsets based on the standard.  Currently, five silicon vendors have announced G.hn products: Lantiq, Marvell Semiconductor, Metanoia, Sigma Designs, and TangoTec. HomeGrid Forum has been in the forefront of advocating the benefits of G.hn to Service Providers in particular and the market in general. HomeGrid is developing a comprehensive Compliance and Interoperability (C&I) program to test and certify silicon and systems. HomeGrid is pleased to expand the test suite to add MIMO.  HomeGrid has now held 5 plugfests between silicon companies to advance the C&I program.
Finally as G.hn-MIMO is an extension of the G.hn technology, new G.hn PLC products with MIMO are fully interoperable with non-MIMO G.hn PLC products. This means Service Providers need not worry over mixed home networks, customers can easily self-install the devices, and OEMs can add MIMO enhanced silicon into existing designs.

 

Malcolm Johnson, Director of the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Bureau, commented: “Months of in-depth research and study by top industry experts culminated in approval of the G.hn-MIMO. This is an exciting and logical step for wired home networking. We are delighted to work together with the HomeGrid Forum as it develops its C&I program. Ensuring conformity and interoperability is central to ITU-T’s work.”

 

“We fully support the G.hn-MIMO standard, and are thrilled with its approval by ITU-T,” said Matt Theall, president of the HomeGrid Forum. “G.hn was already the top-line standards-based wireline home networking technology globally and now, by incorporating MIMO, we will see a significant increase in the robustness, rate and coverage of G.hn PLC. G.hn continues to be the premier technology for wired home networking, and will be for years to come as other new advances are added.”

 

For additional information about the G.hn-MIMO (G.9963) standard, please download the overview document white paper from the HomeGrid Forum website at:
 
 
About ITU-T G.hn
The ITU-T, being an arm of the UN, creates standards with the label “Recommendation” as the UN cannot mandate use of a standard in any member country. While these Recommendations are standards in all regards they go beyond typical standards in that ITU-T standards are used as specific regulatory documents throughout the globe.

 

Through one global standard, G.hn unifies the home networking of content and devices over any wire – coaxial cable, phone lines, and power lines. With it, service providers are able to deploy new offerings, including IPTV, more cost effectively. Consumer electronics manufacturers are able to provide powerful devices for connecting all types of entertainment, home automation, and security products throughout the house. Smart grid devices such as smart electricity meters, managed heating and air conditioning systems, electrical appliances, electric vehicles, and lighting systems also benefit from the reliability, security, and low-power consumption provided by the G.hn standard.

 

About HomeGrid Forum
HomeGrid Forum is a global, non-profit trade group promoting the International Telecommunication Union’s G.hn and G.hnem standardization efforts for next-generation home networking and smart grid applications. HomeGrid Forum promotes adoption of G.hn and G.hnem through technical and marketing efforts, addresses certification and interoperability of G.hn and G.hnem-compliant products, and cooperates with complementary industry alliances.

SmarDTV plugs in cable ops for STB-free VOD on connected TVs

Kudelski Group subsidiary SmarDTV, in partnership with Wiztivi, is claiming to have successfully combined CI Plus content protection with HbbTV hybrid interactive technology so that for the first time cable pay-TV operators can deploy their video-on-demand (VOD) services directly to any connected TV, without using a set top box (STB).

The HbbTV VOD application is designed to be easily customised to the requirements of the operator, both for the user interface, and for the VOD back-end interaction. With interfacing between the application and the SmarCAM conditional access module provided using standard OIPF (Open IP forum) defined interfaces. This means that the solution is entirely based on open standards and will not require specific developments for each different brand of iDTV.

“We believe that the addition of video-on-demand, on top of the premium TV decryption, is a major milestone in the history of CI Plus” said Guillaume Reillon, Head of Product Strategy at SmarDTV. “By combining the successful CI Plus specification with the emerging European standard for interactive applications, we have the ideal solution for cable operators wishing to deploy VOD.”

“HbbTV is rapidly becoming the European standard solution for interactive services and combining it with CI Plus makes complete sense” added Olivier Cechura, CEO at connected TVs turnkey solutions provider Wiztivi.

Nokia targets mass market with touch device range

Embattled device maker Nokia announced its Asha Touch mobile device line, which it said is “taking the full touch experience to new price points.”

The products are intended to help the company defend its position in the mass-market handset sector, where it has come across “really, really aggressive” competition from both new and established rivals.

The three handsets are said to include a “fully re-designed touch user interface.” The first will reach the market imminently, to be followed by its siblings in Q3, with prices in the EUR63–EUR92 range.

In its Q1 results release, Nokia acknowledged that it its feature phone business is being challenged by “full touch” devices from rivals, which offer a user experience more akin to a smartphone.

While its woes in the smartphone sector have been widely discussed, Nokia has also seen significant pressure in its Mobile Phones business.

In the first quarter of 2012, the company shipped 70.8 million mass market handsets, down from 84.3 million in the same period in 2011, which was attributed to distributors and operators reducing their inventories of Nokia feature phones.

The new Asha Touch range comprises three devices: Asha 305, Asha 306 and Asha 311. Asha 305 includes dual-SIM capabilities, while its sibling, Asha 306, is a single-SIM device that “becomes Nokia’s most affordable Wi-Fi handset to date.”

Asha 311 (pictured) is a “fast and fluid 3.5G capacitive touchscreen device, powered by a 1GHz processor to provide a greater Internet experience.”

Among the features are a new web browser coupled with cloud service, which reduces data consumption by 90 percent, “meaning that customers can enjoy faster and cheaper internet access.”

Nokia also said that buyers “will receive an exclusive gift of 40 EA games to download free and keep forever.”

French Competition Authority to market test Canalsat-TPS merger

The investigation services of the French Competition Authority have begun a market test to gain stakeholder views on possible solutions that could address the effects of the TPS-Canalsat merger.

The market test will focus on whether any anti-competitive effects have resulted from the merger and will include some measures that were suggested by market players. It will, says the Authority, provide, in a transparent way, “the opportunity for interested stakeholders to share their analysis on remedies that could be deemed necessary at the end of the procedure.”

Interested stakeholders can submit their comments by Wednesday 6 June 2012.

Following the 2007 merger and acquisition by Canal+ group of TPS activities, 59 commitments had been implemented by the parties. On 20 September 2011, the Competition Authority established that 10 of these commitments were breached by the parties and decided to withdraw its decision to authorise the merger.

As a consequence, on 24 October 2011 the Vivendi and Canal Plus groups, which simultaneously filed an appeal against the Authority’s withdrawal decision before French Administrative Supreme Court, Conseil d’Etat, changed the terms of their acquisition of sole control of TPS and CanalSatellite. The application was then completed by the parties at the request of the investigation services. On 28 March 2012, an in-depth examination of the merger was opened.

TeliaSonera touts 4G progress and OTT alternatives

LIVE FROM OPEN MOBILE SUMMIT LONDON 2012: TeliaSonera has built out its 4G LTE network to cover two out of three of the Swedish population and three in four in Denmark, the Nordic operator’s mobility head, Hakan Dahlstrom, told delegates at the Open Mobile Summit in London this morning.

The company was the first in Europe to launch commercial 4G services at the end of 2009 and now claims to have increased sales and margins as a result – while keeping capex at below 10 percent of net sales in Sweden.

Dahlstrom said it had 140,000 4G users in Sweden but declined to give data for TeliaSonera’s other markets. “The number of [4G] customers is growing in line with [network] expansion,” he said.

The operator’s first 4G handset and 4G router were launched in Q1 2012.

Dahlstrom said the average smartphone user in the Nordics is consuming 300MB of data per month and that this is set to increase to 3GB per month in “just a few years.” Mobile broadband users are on track to consume 45GB per month within five years, he added.

Dahlstrom was broadly in favour of the so-called OTT services using its network but said that TeliaSonera was in a position to offer alternatives.

“The OTT players are increasing the value of the access we are providing to the end user [and] our role is to support this behaviour,” he said. “Access is separate from services. We will treat [the OTT players] like our own services but we will provide alternatives.”

To this end, he said that TeliaSonera was planning an RCS-based communicator to compete with the likes of WhatsApp and Skype. “Not everyone needs to go with our communicator but our customers are asking for this.”

Transition Networks Delivers SLA Assurance to Telecoms and Cable Providers at CommunicAsia 2012

Singapore — May 29, 2012 — Transition Networks Inc., the fiber access technology expert, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ-GM: JCS), today announces the Asian launch of its latest Network Interface Device (NID): the S3280, ahead of CommunicAsia 2012. This device expands on advanced timing over packet networks and is specifically designed to allow telecoms and cable providers to deploy scalable services quickly, and verification of service performance promised in Service Level Agreements (SLA’s) to customers, while minimizing capital expenditures. 

 

The S3280 allows service providers to offer their subscribers tiered Ethernet services, based on advanced features like differentiated Quality of Service (QoS) and bandwidth allocation per Ethernet Virtual Circuit (EVC). This device also enables service providers to offer SLA-quality service and support through scalable, intelligent User Network Interface (UNI), creating a greater differentiation of service offering from their competition. Within these tiered services SLAs can be supported and verified through the use of built in performance monitoring statistics. S3280 reduces Operational Expenses (OpEx) by providing methods to quickly detect and resolve faults without the need to dispatch a technician to remote locations. Remote fault detection and troubleshooting help increase customer satisfaction while minimizing operational expense. 

 

The features of the S3280 are geared for mobile backhaul and business Ethernet delivery, while also designed to support Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0) applications. The S3280 represents a compact platform designed to accommodate today’s demands and grow with tomorrow’s Ethernet requirements – ideal for Asia and beyond. The S3280’s capabilities are based on precise end-to-end performance measurement tools that allow providers to deliver a myriad of services from a single platform.

 

Jon Collins, Senior Product Manager at Transition Networks, says: “We have a new product line built specifically to meet the increasing demands of customers in the region, who continue to put more demands on service providers to offer reliable services that are faster yet more cost-effective. Transition Networks is committed to helping Asian service providers exceed their customers’ expectations as well as their competitive edge and profitability as a result of adding new services more quickly and more efficiently.”

 

“The new S3280 provides a cost-effective way to meet even the most stringent customer demands and addresses wide-scale deployment challenges while providing deterministic features similar to traditional TDM circuits such as: Service OAM, Frame Delay (FD), Frame Delay Variance (FDV or Jitter), Frame Loss Ratio (FLR), single and double tagging, Quality of Service (QoS), bandwidth allocation and remote diagnostics.” 

 

Product Features
The new S3280 builds on Transition Networks’ existing S3240 platform by adding additional port configurations as well as increasing the features of the device.  All of the ports can either be customer or network-facing, allowing for fiber to fiber, copper to fiber, or copper to copper handoffs. Some of the new features and capabilities include a complete Ethernet OAM suite that includes Ethernet Link OAM (IEEE 802.3ah), Ethernet Service OAM (IEEE 802.1ag) and Performance Monitoring (ITU-T Y.1731). This device also fully supports IPv6 and SNMPv3 making it a viable solution for next generation networks.

This feature-rich, intelligent Network Interface Device incorporates both E-Line and E-LAN services for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint connectivity between locations.  Included are additional advanced security features such as:  SSL, SSH, Multi-layer Access Control Lists (ACL), TACACS+, and management VLANs to prevent unauthorized access to anyone who isn’t a network adminstrator.  The S3280 incorporates a standards based SONET-like ring recovery mechanism titled ITU G.8032v2, which guarantees sub-50ms recovery in the event of a link failure along with interoperability between different manufacturers. The S3280 also adds 1588v2 clocking mechanisms, which is critical in ensuring proper timing and packet delivery in high-quality mobile services.

The S3280 has a normal operating temperature of -20°-65°C but offers providers a short-term extended temp range of -40°C to 75°C, allowing deployments in semi-controlled backhaul applications. The S3280 has three power input standards.  Either 100-240VAC, or dual redundant DC power inputs ranging from 18-57VDC. The fanless design of the S3280 increases the product’s reliability over the duration of its deployment. 

Provisioning, management and monitoring of the S3280 can be performed from a web-browser, the integrated CLI (either via telnet or the console port), or with an SNMP system.
