Ebook "Network security technologies" presents key security technologies from diverse fields, using a hierarchical framework that enables understanding of security components, how they relate to one another, and how they interwork. This text is unique in that it classifies technologies as basic, enhanced, integrated, and architectural as a means of associating their functional complexities, providing added insight into their interrelationships. It introduces and details security components and their relationships to each other.
This Solution Reference Network Design (SRND) publication is intended to provide a set of guidelines
for designing, implementing, and deploying Voice and Video Enabled IPSec VPN (V3
This SRND defines the comprehensive functional components required to build a Site-to-Site Enterprise
Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution that can transport IP telephony and video.
The Microsoft Windows 2000 Active Directory (AD) is the central repository in which all
objects in an enterprise and their respective attributes are stored. It is a hierarchical,
multimaster enabled database, capable of storing millions of objects. Because it is
multimaster, changes to the database can be processed at any given domain controller (DC)
in the enterprise regardless of whether the domain controller is connected or disconnected
from the network.
The use of acoustic energy in food or bioprocessing operations is a relatively new
endeavor if compared with other sources of energy, such as mechanical or thermal,
which have been utilized for centuries in various applications. There are two
important factors that make the current ultrasound-assisted processes possible. One
is related with the development in ultrasound generation technology and the other
one is the better understanding of interactions between acoustic energy and liquid
media, enabling the development of important guidelines for ultrasound-based
Grid Networks describes the convergence of advanced networking technologies and Grid technologies, with special focus on their symbiotic relationship and the resulting new opportunities. Grid technology is applicable to many implementations, Computational Grids, Data Grids, Service Grids, and Instrumentation Grids.
The authors cover a breadth of topics including recent research, featuring both theoretical concepts and empirical results. Beginning with an overview of Grid technologies, an analysis of distinguishing use cases and architectural attributes, and emerging standards.
ETP2010 will build on the success of earlier editions, by providing decision makers with more detailed practical information and tools that can help kick-start the transition to a more secure, sustainable and affordable energy future.

ConnectM focuses on Energy technologies (Clean Tech) with its Energy Management Solution. Organizations spend typically about 20% of their energy on lighting, 60% on HVAC, 10% on their Datacenters and 20% on essential equipments & machineries....
Innovative developments in information and communication technologies (ICT) irre-
vocably change our lives and enable new possibilities for society. One of the ﬁ elds that
strongly proﬁ ts from this trend is Telemedicine, which can be deﬁ ned as novel ICT-
enabled medical services that help to overcome classical barriers in space and time.
Through Telemedicine patients can access medical expertise that may not be available
at the patient’s site.
The development and launch of the fi rst artifi cial satellite Sputnik more than fi ve decades
ago, propelled both the scientifi c and engineering communities to new heights
as they worked together to develop novel solutions to the challenges of spacecraft system
Optics and photonics are technical enablers for many areas of the economy, and dramatic
technical advances have had a major impact on daily life. For example, in the last decade,
advances in optical fiber communications have permitted a nearly 100-fold increase in the
amount of information that can be transmitted from place to place, enabling a societytransforming
Internet to thrive. As noted in the introduction to Charles Kao’s 2009 Nobel Prize
lecture on his work in optical fiber communications, “the work has fundamentally transformed
the way we live our daily lives.
Mobile messaging technology enables users to communicate
in an asynchronous manner, where messages are stored in the
network and delivered to the recipient as soon as the recipient’s
mobile phone can receive it. Once delivered, the message
resides on the users’ mobile phone.
SMS (Short Messaging Service) allows a mobile user to send
and receive a text message of up to 160 characters and across
virtually any operator network. This service is also referred to
as “text messaging” or “texting”. All mobile phones shipped
over the past few years support SMS.
Progress in information technology (IT) has been remarkable, but the best truly is yet to come: the power of IT as a human enabler is just beginning to be realized. Whether the nation builds on this momentum or plateaus prematurely depends on today’s decisions about fundamental research in computer science (CS) and the related fields behind IT. The Computer Science and Telecommunications Board (CSTB) has often been asked to examine how innovation occurs in IT,
It was to the author’s delight that the medical and scientific communities
have so warmly received his previous two books, also published by
Springer, on the subjects of orthopaedic trauma and orthopaedic principles.
The current text summarises the many conceptual and technological
advances in the field of orthopaedic rehabilitation that the trainee surgeons
will be eager to know.
This book provides the theoretical foundation of Finite Element Analysis(FEA) in
implant dentistry and practical modelling skills that enable the new users (implant
dentists and designers) to successfully carry out PEA in actual clinical situations.
The text is divided into five parts: introduction of finite element analysis and
implant dentistry, applications, theory with modelling and use of commercial
software for the finite element analysis. The first part introduces the background of
FEA to the dentist in a simple style.
The use of radio-frequency communication—commonly referred to
as wireless communication—is becoming more pervasive as well as more
economically and socially important. Technological progress over many
decades has enabled the deployment of several successive generations
of cellular telephone technology, which is now used by many billions
of people worldwide; the near-universal addition of wireless local area
networking to personal computers; and a proliferation of actual and proposed
uses of wireless communications.
Today's defense systems incorporate an increasing number of electronic components, intended to
enable these systems to be more accurate, more sophisticated, and more effective. Advances in printed
circuits and associated interconnection—an integral technology—have enabled this trend, and these
advances are expected to continue to enable future combat systems.
Technology and architecture includes the main content: Introduction, case study background, understanding Cloud Computing, fundamental concepts and models, cloud - enabling technology,... Invite you to consult the documentation.
This tutorial is about the evolution of speech technology from research to a mature industry. Today, spoken language communication with computers is becoming part of everyday life. Thousands of interactive applications using spoken language technology— known also as “conversational machines”—are only phone calls away, allowing millions of users each day to access information, perform transactions, and get help. Speech recognition, language understanding, text-to-speech synthesis, machine learning, and dialog management enabled this revolution after more than 50 years of research.
