Cisco: Nothing Will Stop Cloud Growth!

E-mail Print PDF

It appears nothing will slow the current explosive growth of the cloud down-- the Cisco Cloud Index (2014-2019) forecasts global cloud traffic will quadruple from 2.1 to 8.6 zettabytes (ZB) by end 2019.

Cloud citySuch growth outpaces total global datacentre traffic forecast to grow by 300% during the same period from 3.4 to 10.4ZB-- the equivalent of 26 trillion hours of business web conferencing or 6.8 trillion hours of HD video streaming.

W. Europe is 3rd in the global cloud traffic volume rankings, with traffic reaching 1.5ZB. On top are N. America (3.6ZB) and Asia Pacific (2.3ZB). The same goes for global datacentre traffic, as W. Europe is likewise 3rd (1.8ZB) as preceded by N. America (4.5TB) and Asia Pacific (2.7ZB).

How to Use Wifi to See Through Walls

E-mail Print PDF

Researchers at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab present a non-networking use for wifi-- as a means to see through walls, essentially making an X-ray vision of sorts.

RF CaptureDubbed RF-Capture, the technology uses variations in wifi signals to recognise human silhouettes from behind walls. To do so it first transmits wifi signals before analysing reflections in the signals to piece together a human form. In other words, it is a little bit like a radar. It requires no wearable sensors and transmission power is "10000 times lower" than standard mobile phone signals.

The researchers say the technology (or rather, the algorithm behind it) is accurate enough to know who the person behind a wall is, determine how he or she is moving and even trace a person's handwriting in air, all by piecing together a silhouette from the reflected wifi signals.
