Our client, N-trig, a leading provider of dual mode technology combining pen and zero-pressure touch for mobile computers into a single device, announced today its expansion into North America with the opening of its U.S. sales and technical support office in Austin, Texas.
This new book focuses on the specific threats to enterprise voice over IP (VoIP) networks, and is the latest addition to McGraw-Hill’s internationally best-selling Hacking ExposedTM network security book series. The series aims to educate network security practitioners by detailing actual strategies, tactics, and weapons used by hackers to penetrate corporate data networks. A companion website with free security diagnostic tools can be found at www.hackingvoip.com.
As enterprise VoIP adoption continues to increase, so will the scope, frequency, and severity of VoIP-related network attacks. Although VoIP security has become a hot topic of discussion among voice administrators, the media, and industry analysts; little is really understood about which types of attacks are likely to be most prevalent, how these attacks will manifest, and what network administrators should do to prioritize and defend against these threats today and tomorrow.

Watch out mainstream television networks and cable. The Internet is coming after you.
Today, our client, Internet Communications pioneer and entrepreneur, Jeff Pulver, announced the launch of Network2, a selection of the best independent TV shows available only on the Internet.
The site features a guide to episodic programming, ranging from reality-show style features to cooking shows to puppet theater, and including all the topics one might expect to find on TV, including sports, politics, technology, arts, and family features.
Network 2 is effectively a new, internet-powered television network, with all the characteristics of commercial networks delivered over cable and broadcast. "Somewhere between the world of professionally produced TV shows and personal video blogs lies the world of what can be best described as TV Shows Only Available on the Internet," said Jeff Pulver, founder and chairman of Network2.
"In the last year, the technology to make Internet-delivered TV happen has become inexpensive enough to make it more available for everyone. So we're about to see a boom of content by lots of people who are finally able to access the technology and show off their talent. This is another example of disruptive technology which will change media and entertainment as we know it."
Network2 allows users to rate the shows they watch and also includes a current list of the most popular Internet-only TV shows, as judged by visitor clicks. More than 100 shows can be watched on the website, including:
-- Alive in Baghdad - Citizen journalists cover the war with a camcorder. -- CC Rider TV - Videos about motorcycle design and racing. -- Channel Frederator - Some of the world's coolest and funniest cartoons. -- Cube Fabulous - A new reality web series that makes over office cubicles. -- Fearless Cooking - Gloria Piper cooks anything, including squid. -- Galacticast - A weekly sci fi comedy. -- Mommy TV - A weekly video magazine for mothers. -- Nurse TV - 13 Weeks - A travel reality show that follows the lives of six nurses. -- Rocketboom - A daily news and information show featuring technology, social issues, and more. -- Something to be Desired - A weekly web sitcom/drama set in a fictitious radio station, magazine publisher, and coffee shop. -- The Show with Ze Frank - commentary on current events.
"There is no doubt in my mind that the quality of the user experience is just going to improve with these shows, and the success of some of these sites will just encourage others to join the fray of TV Shows Only Available on the Internet," said Pulver. "It is just a matter of time before more of these shows find their way from being 'Internet Only' to becoming available for viewing on TiVo, broadcast TV, or cable, and these independently produced shows will really alter the landscape of television viewing."
To be included on the Network2 site, TV shows must be a source of video content that is original, consistently updated, entertaining, and only available over the Internet. The show must also have a working RSS feed. Unlike YouTube, Network2.tv includes only high-quality episodic shows. Network2 is a continually expanding site, and readers are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org about any TV Shows Only Available on the Internet that they are aware of.

Our client, HomePNA 3 technology leader CopperGate Communications Ltd. and BroadLight Inc., a leading supplier of ITU Passive Optical Network (PON) semiconductor solutions today announced that they have partnered on a joint solution that enables a variety of fiber based access applications including MDU access solutions and delivery and in-home distribution of voice, data, and high-definition video services - commonly known as "triple play" - over a single channel.
The solution combines gigabit-per-second access over fiber networks with in-home distribution to multi-media and computing appliances over coaxial cables and phonelines with guaranteed quality of service (QoS).
Fiber to the Home (FTTH) and Building (FTTB) are being deployed widely with the new ITU-T G.984 GPON standard," said Gabi Hilevitz, CopperGate's CEO. "With over 25 GPON design wins, BroadLight is an excellent partner for a joint reference design which will enable ONT OEMs to develop cost-effective equipment that utilizes the massive amount of data transmitted to the residence over the fiber technology."
"Telephone service providers are focused on deploying new IPTV services and see FTTH as a means to gain advantage over their cable competitors," said Didi Ivancovsky, VP of marketing for BroadLight. "This reference design leverages CopperGate's position as a major supplier of TelcoTV home networking products to deliver a solution that will lower the cost of ONT deployment and in-home connectivity for this rapidly growing application."
Coppergate's CopperStream(tm) chipsets, embedded in set-top boxes and gateways from leading manufacturers, are the first to comply with the ITU G.9954 (HomePNA 3) home networking standard. HomePNA 3 technology is being deployed today by AT&T and other major telcos for the in-home distribution of triple play services and in MDU access applications worldwide.
Together, BroadLight and CopperGate promise to help OEMs build equipment that delivers broadband media over fiber-optic networks directly to multimedia appliances in the home and apartments in MDU applications.
