IEEE To Amend Wireless LAN Standards

The IEEE has begun work on two amendments to the IEEE 802.11 standard for wireless local area networks.

IEEE P802.11u, "Wireless LAN Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications: IEEE 802.11 Interworking with External Networks," will harmonize the ability of IEEE 802.11 equipment and external networks to work together. The common wireless interworking framework it will provide will include protocol exchanges across the air interface and primitives to support the higher-layer interactions involved. IEEE P802.11v, "Wireless LAN Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Network Management," will create a complete and coherent upper layer interface for managing IEEE 802.11 devices in wireless networks. It will allow stations to perform management functions, such as monitoring, configuring and updating, in either a central or distributed manner through a layer 2 mechanism. The standards are developed by the IEEE 802.11 Working Group, sponsored by the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee.

HP LightScribe Technology

Burn, flip, burn - yep that's true. HP has introduced a new CD burning technology called LightScribe. Now you can burn your own silkscreen-quality CD/DVD labels using LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling technology. You can create customized laser-etched labels using the same laser that burns the data, right inside the CD/DVD drive.

Explore the new world of disc labeling with LightScribe technology.
