An international, Harvard-led team of researchers have demonstrated a new type of light beam that propagates without spreading outwards, remaining very narrow and controlled along an unprecedented distance. This "needle beam," as the team calls it, could greatly reduce signal loss for on-chip optical systems and may eventually assist the development of a more powerful class of microprocessors.
At first glance Voice over LTE (VoLTE), the next generation of wireless voice technology, looks suspiciously like VoIP service over a wireless connection. At a very basic level it is exactly that: digitized voice-band audio transmitted as IP packets and demodulated into voice-band audio. Then what is the difference between VoLTE and over-the-top services like Skype, Vonage or Gizmo5?
