2007, I wrote an ebook called “Save the Pixel—the Art of Simple Web Design,”
which teaches that simplicity is the key to designing web pages that work. Th e book
has sold more than 8,000 copies, and my agency Scratchmedia has become well
known for the clean, spacious design style.
Aft er I presented on simple web design at Ken McCarthy’s System Intensive seminar
in 2008, I was asked what evidence I could share that proved the eff ectiveness of my
approach. I was shocked to realize I had no numbers to prove that simplicity works!...
Advanced TraÆc Management Systems (ATMS) and Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) are promising technologies for achieving eÆciency in the operation of transportation systems. This paper presents a simulation based laboratory environment, MITSIMLab, designed for testing and evaluation of dynamic traÆc management systems. The core of MITSIMLab is a microscopic traÆc simulator (MITSIM) and a traÆc management simulator (TMS).
This book is the product of over 15 years of working with RTT, delivering strategic
technology design programs for the cellular design community. This has included pro-
grams on AMPS/ETACS handset, base station, and network design in the early to
mid-1980s; programs on GSM handset, base station, and network design from the late
1980s to mid-1990s onward; and, more recently, programs on 3G handset, Node B, and
This revised edition contains over 5,000 terms used by air traffic controllers, pilots, cabin crew, maintenance crews, ground staff and other airline personnel.
Designed for those specialising in aviation and related industries, including trainee pilots, maintenance engineers and other professionals, this dictionary has all the words you need.

Multiprotocol Label Switching
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a standards-approved technology for
speeding up network traffic flow and making it easier to manage. MPLS involves
setting up a specific path for a given sequence of packets, identified by a label put
in each packet, thus saving the time needed for a router to look up the address to
the next node to forward the packet to. MPLS is called multiprotocol because it
works with the Internet Protocol (IP), Asynchronous Transport Mode (ATM), and
frame relay network protocols....
This study focuses on the future direction in wireless/mobile telecommunications as a standalone concept for building wireless IP systems, including commercial, campus, local and global networks. It examines the integration of the Internet and mobile networks, which are merging as a result of global demand for seamless mobile communication.
The purpose of Top-Down Network Design, Third Edition, is to help you design networks that meet a customer’s business and technical goals. Whether your customer is another department within your own company or an external client, this book provides you with tested processes and tools to help you understand traffic flow, protocol behavior, and internetworking technologies.
In this module, students will learn how to determine threats and analyze risks to
data transmission in an organization. Students will also learn how to design
security for different types of data transmission, including traffic on local area
networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), virtual private networks
(VPNs), wireless networks, and the Internet.
Transport diversity is a general terminology used for selecting or preferring a network exit-point for
end-user application traffic across network topologies that have a variety of characteristics. These
characteristics include things like monetary cost, reliability or availability, availability of bandwidth, and
One example of transport diversity is a branch office environment that has a primary path using Frame
Relay and a backup or alternate path using basic rate ISDN.
Dashboards have become popular in recent years as uniquely powerful tools for communicating important information at a glance. Although dashboards are potentially powerful, this potential is rarely realized. The greatest display technology in the world won't solve this if you fail to use effective visual design. And if a dashboard fails to tell you precisely what you need to know in an instant, you'll never use it, even if it's filled with cute gauges, meters, and traffic lights. Don't let your investment in dashboard technology go to waste. ...
Compression of executable code in embedded microprocessor systems, used in the past mainly to reduce the memory footprint of embedded software, is gaining interest for the potential reduction in memory bus traffic and power consumption. We propose three new schemes for code compression, based on the concepts of static (using the static representation of the executable) and dynamic (using program execution traces) entropy and compare them with a state-of-the-art compression scheme, IBM’s CodePack.
This module provides the information needed by students to design site
topologies in Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Active Directory directory service
in order to optimize replication traffic. The module begins by explaining how to
assess the need for sites. Next the module describes how to use site links in a
network. Finally it covers how to plan for an inter-site replication topology and
plan for server placement.
The Check Point VPN-1 Edge appliance is a unified threat management (UTM) appliance
that enables secure high-speed Internet access from the office. Developed by SofaWare
Technologies, an affiliate of Check Point Software Technologies, the worldwide leader in
securing the Internet, the VPN-1 Edge appliance incorporates the X and W product
families. Both product families include models with and without an integrated ADSL
modem, and the X family includes an industrial model especially designed for use and
durability in extreme environments.
The use of satellites in communications systems is very much a fact of everyday life, as
is evidenced by the many homes equipped with antennas, or dishes used for reception
of satellite television. What may not be so well known is that satellites form an
essential part of telecommunication systems worldwide, carrying large amounts of
data and telephone traffic in addition to the television signals.
Many pavements, which are considered to be structurally sound after the
construction of an overlay, prematurely exhibit a cracking pattern similar to that
which existed in the underlying pavement. This propagation of an existing crack
pattern, from discontinuities in the old pavement, into and through a new overlay is
known as reflective cracking.
Reflective cracks destroy surface continuity, decrease structural strength, and allow
water to enter sublayers. Thus, the problems that weakened the old pavement are
extended up into the new overlay.

An association between exposure to vehicular traffic in urban areas and the exacerbation
of cardiovascular disease has been suggested in previous studies. This study was
designed to assess whether exposure to traffic can trigger myocardial infarction.
We conducted a case–crossover study in which cases of myocardial infarction were
identified with the use of data from the Cooperative Health Research in the Region of
Augsburg Myocardial Infarction Registry in Augsburg, in southern Germany, for the
period from February 1999 to July 2001....
Since it has been shown that car-sharing can contribute markedly to reducing the
burden of automobile traffic on the environment, the Swedish National Road
Administration considers it important that the establishment and growth of car-
sharing schemes be enouraged. There is a need of clarifying, however, just what
car-sharing is and what quality requirements should be met by car-sharing
groups in order for public benefits and support to be provided them.
Interactions between two or more categories occur. For example, a car radio can be used as entertainment, but may
also provide the driver with traffic information. The interactions between categories should be an important
consideration during the further design and research on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. The interface in
particular should provide the user with means to safely use all three categories.
This research will primarily focus on the safety systems.
