Citywide Free Wifi Access In NYC

Can everyone just imagine how fast the world is evolving right now? If we compare the society’s situation a decade ago from now, we can say it’s one heck of a big leap for everyone. Big thanks to brilliant people with incredible ideas and technology upgrades.

What keeps on evolving right now is the digital world that helped almost half of the population’s needs in terms of research and communication. Computers, mobile phones, machines and other electronic devices have upgraded to its new level that gives convenience to people not to mention wireless internet connections.

Most people cannot live without it because it becomes their source of communication to their love ones who are living far away from them. Researchers see the convenience in looking for data over the internet and at the same time share theirs too. Keeping people updated on what is new and trending is one of the purposes why there are technology and the internet.

Now with this kind of situation, IT companies have thought of making it more accessible to everyone most especially to the people in New York. Wifi wiring in New York made all things possible and easier for the community, especially to tourists and OFWs who wishes to communicate with their family back at home. It is the idea of the city to dethrone the reigning champs Seoul, Tokyo and Geneva, for the ‘most connected city in the world’ title as far as accessible, and high-speed internet is concerned.

In connection to that, the city has signed a $200 million dollar deal to replace old pay phone spots to high-tech, futuristic kiosks at no costs to taxpayers and New York residents. FREE WIFI, how cool is that?

These kiosks installed by LinkNYC program broadcasts a 100 times faster connection than municipal WIFI wirings. It can be used for video-chatting, free domestic calls and simple internet searches which are again accessible to anyone who wishes to use it. The kiosk cover 150-foot radius at speeds of up to a gigabit per second. It is incredible how technology made all of this work.

Not just that because LinkNYC has collaborated with transit wireless to provide free internet connection to passengers throughout the high-traffic subway.

With all these techy changes, we acknowledge those who came up with structured fiber optic wirings that make such system work with its right pace. Different companies nowadays are now offering structured cabling installation to data and voice systems that enable faster internet connection avoid distractions from system problems.

The team that will install the wifi connection that may come from different companies may have different approaches when they do the job. Therefore, it is always better to find the right group of people to do the job, the ones who are properly trained and who knows what they are doing.

Besides, who would not want a near-citywide unlimited WIFI access anyways? Pretty sure NYC is stoked for this.

Everyone cannot wait for the WIFI wiring upgrade not just in the city but all other countries of course.

Breaking News – WiFi Hitting the Security Cameras Scene

Do you know what the latest development in wireless security cameras is?

The latest revolution in security cameras doesn’t involve the sensor or the lens, it involve the transmission signal.

Wireless security cameras are now going WiFi.

Looking at the latest technologies, it is no surprise that WiFi is welcomed in to this field. Many wireless surveillance cameras are now available to make any surveillance system highly efficient and functional.

A wireless security camera can perform many functions such as remote viewing, motion detection and recording, and the best of all is that it is battery operated.

To understand why wireless surveillance cameras have become so popular, you must first understand what WiFi stands for and its functions.

WiFi is short for wireless fidelity refers to a set of wireless networking technologies and more specifically referred to as any type of 802.11 network, 802.11b and 802.11a and dual band. The word WiFi was built by an organization named as WiFi alliance. A product that undergoes the WiFi alliance analyses is given the name WiFi certified.

WiFi is a wireless technology that handles the networking/communication between devices. WiFi is caused by Radio waves that are transmitted from an antenna and WiFi receivers pick them up. These signals are then broadcasted to the device with WiFi connection.

WiFi equipped consumer electronics range from automobiles, cameras, computers, camcorders, mobile phones, video games, GPS systems, DVD players, printers, and many more. Security cameras now have joined the growing list of WiFi devices. The reason is attributed to many homes now having WLAN (WiFi local area network). You would just have to connect the wireless security camera to the network to give coverage of wider areas.

In WiFi surveillance cameras, the video signals go over a wireless LAN and then to a video server or PC. You can install a WiFi surveillance camera much faster than a traditional wired security camera. Perhaps the biggest advantage is that the WiFi security camera can be remotely controlled by laptop or phone with Internet facility and the picture quality is uninterrupted. But the disadvantage lies in the security of the video transfer. If it is not encrypted, it can easily be tapped and create security problems.

How are WiFi surveillance cameras better than regular wireless RF security cameras?

RF wireless surveillance cameras use radio frequency wireless technology similar to some high-end cordless phones to transmit and receive wireless video signals. It has many advantages such as being mobile and can be set up anywhere. A major drawback of wireless RF security camera is that the radio signals used to transmit video can be interrupted by electric motored products such as AC, fluorescent lighting or cordless telephones which affect the picture quality.

Where should you use a WiFi surveillance camera?

A WiFi surveillance camera is made for indoor use, whether for a company or home use. It must be placed at locations with minimum RF interference.

What do resellers need to be wary of when listing WiFi surveillance cameras? As a seller of WiFi surveillance cameras, you must list the compatibility properties of these cameras with the different types of networks like 802.11b or 802.11g WiFi networks. This helps the customer make an informed decision and avoid unnecessary problems of refunds and returns. You become a trustworthy seller as opposed some sellers, who claim that the surveillance cameras are WiFi enabled but they use radio waves for wireless transmission and create network issues for the customer.
