5G C-band rollout at US airports slowed over radio altimeter safety fears
Tuesday, 28 June 2022 07:00

America's aviation watchdog has said the rollout of 5G C-band coverage near US airports won't fully start until next year, delaying some travelers' access to better cellular broadband at crowded terminals.

Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen said in a statement this month that its discussions with wireless carriers "have identified a path that will continue to enable aviation and 5G C-band wireless to safely co-exist."

5G C-band operates between 3.7-3.98GHz, near the 4.2-4.4GHz band used by radio altimeters that are jolly useful for landing planes in limited visibility. There is or was a fear that these cellular signals, such as

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise adds Wi-Fi 6E to 'premium' access points
Tuesday, 28 June 2022 01:30

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is the latest networking outfit to add Wi-Fi 6E capability to its hardware, opening up access to the less congested 6GHz spectrum for business users.

The France-based company just revealed the OmniAccess Stellar 14xx series of wireless access points, which are set for availability from this September. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise said its first Wi-Fi 6E device will be a high-end "premium" Access Point and will be followed by a mid-range product by the end of the year.

Wi-Fi 6E is compatible with the Wi-Fi 6 standard, but adds the ability to use channels in the 6GHz portion of the

Zero Trust: What does it actually mean – and why would you want it?
Thursday, 30 June 2022 19:32

Systems Approach Since publishing our article and video on APIs, I’ve talked with a few people on the API topic, and one aspect that keeps coming up is the importance of security for APIs.

In particular, I hear the term “zero trust” increasingly being applied to APIs, which led to the idea for this post. At the same time, I’ve also noticed what might be called a zero trust backlash, as it becomes apparent that you can’t wave a zero trust wand and instantly solve all your security concerns.

Zero trust has been on my radar for almost a decade,

NOBODY PRINT! Selfless hero saves typing pool from carbon catastrophe

On Call "Because that's how we've always done it" is a mantra we've heard all too often. But what happens when you suggest something different? Take a trip back to the days of carbon paper with On Call .

Dan was working in IT support for a UK local authority. "IT support," he told us, involved "anything with a plug on it." It was fortunate therefore
