This book accompanies the fourth annual ICMCC Event.
In the past 12 months the role of ICMCC with regards to patient-related ICT has
become obvious with the start of the Record Access Portal. It is our goal to come forward
with a recommendation to the WHO on Record Access. This recommendation
will therefore be one of the leading issues of the Round Table on the Responsibility
Shift from Doctor to Patient.
In fall 2001, the RAND Corporation conducted a survey of officers and enlisted personnel who had recently returned from a deployment to Prince Sultan Air Base (PSAB) or Eskan Village in Saudi Arabia. This documented briefing reports the results of that effort, using survey data to consider the utility of a PSAB/Eskan deployment as a setting for skill broadening and competency development. In doing so, this research addresses the larger issue of whether the learning that occurs during deployments merits tracking....
A network designer that wants to design a scalable MPLS VPN solution is always
faced with a number of scalability issues, several of them being related to the
MPLS VPN architecture:
n MPLS VPN uses internal BGP (IBGP) to propagate VPNv4 routes between
PE routers. Default IBGP implementation requires a full-mesh of BGP
sessions between PE routers—a design that is only appropriate for very small
The number of applications for RFID systems has increased each year and various
research directions have been developed to improve the performance of these systems.
Therefore IN-TECH publisher has decided to continue the series of books dedicated to the
latest results of research in the RFID field and launch a new book, entitled “Radio Frequency
Identification Fundamentals and Applications, Design Methods and Solutions”, which
could support the further development of RFID.
RESOURCE AND NETWORK MANAGEMENT
Operating a 3G network involves managing resources and Network Elements (NE). This chapter covers these two aspects to complete the deployment issues started in Chapter 7. Resources here refer primarily to the radio resources and NE refers to the 3G building blocks, i.e. elements in the CS, PS and radio access networks.
The telecom industry is on the rebound and the demand for more and newer wireless services is ever increasing. To meet these market demands, wireless providers have to deploy advanced radio access networks to enhance the mobile communications infrastructure. This forward-looking book delivers a comprehensive overview of the evolution of mobile radio access networks, focusing on high-level architectural issues that engineers and managers need to understand.
Recent DCF analysis highlighted the importance of improved national aid information management systems to better
track effective development cooperation targets, including on gender equality and the empowerment of women, and to
make a wide range of timely and forward-looking information (on disbursements, forecasts, progress on results, and
gender issues) widely available to all stakeholders for accountability purposes.
As carriers begin deploying FTTX architectures, they are focusing a lot of
attention on the outside plant (OSP) segment. And why not? This architecture
presents many challenges with passive optical networking (PON) technology,
thousands of distribution lines and connections, power and distance concerns,
and so many other issues to address. Basically, the mindset is that if a problem is
going to surface during the FTTX deployment, it will likely happen downstream.
Advances in sensor technology and deployment strategies are revolutionizing
the way that geospatial information is collected and analyzed. For example,
cameras and GPS sensors on-board static or mobile platforms have the ability
to provide continuous streams of geospatially-rich information.
In July 2009, the wife of a high-level government executive in the United Kingdom published personal data in
a social networking site. This garnered a lot of attention, not for the confidentiality of the content but for the lack
of awareness there is about the accessibility of your online content. There is also another issue at play here,
which is the fact that once you publish any picture online, you lose control over it as people leech and republish it
on places you do not even know.
This book provides an insight for students, researchers and practitioners on the area of vehicular communications explaining and presenting solutions for some of the most critical issues in this field and, hopefully, inspiring new research directions. The book is organized in Sections, which respond to different layers and aspects of the vehicular technology: infrastructures, cells deployment and its integration with the V2V part, access procedures, advanced services and applications as localization, spectrum sensing, relay-based cooperative networks....
Compiled TSPL programs are created by compiling a TSPL source module that is generated by SAS Enterprise Miner.
They do not contain TSPL source statements. Compiled TSPL programs are shared object libraries that are stored inside
the DBMS. SAS provides a collection of tools to simplify and automate the process of converting a TSPL source program
to compiled TSPL. Some of these tools integrate with specific DBMS vendor tools.
Every operator knows that a well-planned network makes for reduced complexity, lower costs
and fewer service issues. Unfortunately, the reality is that many operators have fewer resources
dedicated to network planning and design. With new network equipment options, new
transmission and transport alternatives and increased service demands, engineering decisions are
becoming increasingly complex.
