Wired Wi-Fi or WiGig for enhancing Range

You have a big office of 3 Floors or a Home which is not Wi-Fi Friendly and it does not have the provision for LAN or any other wiring. Even a distant room/garage or basement beyond the Wi-Fi range.

Wireless Gigabit Alliance - WiGig 60 GHz

If we could build a Wired interface for Wi-Fi and WiGig then such rooms can be brought within range. A wired interface without wires, then you think of optics, not even optic fiber .... that will build up the cost for home networks.

Wave Guide may be an answer, a wire that pretends to be a waveguide. Let us take a thin flexible plastic tube, 2-3 mm in dia, 1mm wall thickness of tube. The outer wall of the 3mm tube is coated with a suitable copper alloy. Above that a thick insulation to protect from mechanical damage. This may act as a waveguide if properly designed, probably the way or pattern in which the metal is coated.

Fixed WiMAX SoC and RF Module - Fujitsu

If this works in theory, then Pump RF on one end with a little more juice, just like in Optic fibers. The other end may get enough signal strength for good speed connectivity. It will at least be still wi-fi on waveguide and easier to implement than RJ45, these LAN cables, connectors and switches include many components and modules, that make it very fussy and unreliable.

Wi-Fi seems to be very friendly and safety has also improved now. So a wired, one wire or waveguide to extend Wi-Fi can phase out the RJ45. I like RJ45 similar to the sentiments i have for the Printer Port and RS232. Then USB has just taken over. Change is inevitable, Find a way out of RJ45 for good.

Wireless Networking Resources

"Wireless Connectivity is very important for portable electronic devices. The technology has developed so well that small batteries, small flash storage and low power wireless is practical today. This makes Tablets and Wearable computer even closer to becoming the way computing will be done in the future.

The only bottleneck is that the mobile broadband still cannot manage that kind of data load at an affordable price. Something like the WiMax or Bell Labs' lightRadio Cube should take off and remove this Road Block.

We are now waiting for that Historic Invention that makes fiber-broadband and mobile-broadband converge to make the Digitally Connected World a Reality". - Aug 2014 delabs Notes

More of My notes

Set up your own Wi-fi Hotspots or WiMAX regions to enable broadband. One thing i strongly feel, my technical opinion only. A Gut feel that says that the Mobile type technologies like 3G or beyond are not built the way that a TCP-IP Network like Wi-Fi is. .....below

Nothing less than a Wi-Fi like Experience with same connectivity and costs, will work long term, to user satisfaction. Many Many users, Many Many Videos, Games, Video Conferencing, Downloads, Updates, Socials .. Think again.

WiMAX with Those small Cubes that Bell labs made may be just what we want - Alcatel-Lucent - lightRadio.

"Leveraging Bell Labs innovations in active antenna technology and advanced CPRI compression and partnerships with Freescale and HP, Alcatel-Lucent is first in the industry to announce products in this space."

Modbus Communication Protocol Suite

Group of individuals and firms supporting and helping the implementation of Modbus communication protocol suite and the evolution to address architectures for distributed automation systems.

Modbus Communication Protocol Suite

Some Activities of the Modbus Organization are ...to Encourage, support and evolve ...
  • Participation in standards activities worldwide.
  • Leading the evolution of the Modbus protocol and its variants.
  • Modbus across a broad spectrum of physical layers and transmission media.
  • Conformance testing program to insure greater interoperability of Modbus devices.
Some Facts -

Modbus Protocol is a messaging structure developed by Modicon (Schneider Electric) in 1979. It is used to establish master-slave/client-server communication between intelligent devices. It is a de facto standard, truly open and the most widely used network protocol in the industrial manufacturing environment.

The semiconductor industry has implemented a Network Communication Standard and an Object Messaging Protocol using Modbus TCP/IP. This allows SEMI Sensor Bus compatible sensors to communicate with each other using Modbus TCP/IP.

Spinwave Systems’ Wireless Thermostat Controller is a drop-in replacement for almost any existing conventional non-communicating thermostat, re-using the existing equipment wiring. Thermostat functions and values are accessible remotely through an embedded web page of the Modbus Mesh Gateway or via Modbus communication.



Wireless Thermostat Controller, SWC-TSTAT-1

The wireless thermostat controller is a full function wireless mesh device with integrated radio that can be configured to control heat pump systems, (with auxiliary or emergency heating if necessary), gas/oil heating systems with add on cooling, control high and low balance points as well as the number of heating and cooling stages needing precise control. It can even adapt to manage the number of fan speeds it must control.
