Dutch researchers say a new wireless network employing harmless infrared rays will make Wi-Fi speeds up to 300 times faster. “What we are doing actually is using rays of light which convey the information in a wireless way, and each ray is acting as a very high-capacity channel.It’s actually the same as an optical fibre without needing the fibre, and what we achieved up to this moment is 112 gigabits per second,” Professor Ton Koonen of Eindhoven University of Technology said That’s the equivalent data of three full-length HD movies being downloaded per second. Light antennas radiate multiple invisible wavelengths at various angles. If a user’s smartphone or tablet moves out of one antenna’s sightline, another takes over. Infrared wavelengths don’t go into your eyes, making them safe to use. The lack of moving parts makes the system maintenance and power-free. Each user gets their own antenna.
“The big benefits we see of our technique is that you offer unshared capacity to each individual user, so you get a guaranteed capacity. Next to that you only get a beam if you need the traffic. So we’re not illuminating the whole place where maybe a single user is there. That means it’s much more power efficient,” Koonen said. “Another efficiency, another advantage, is that light doesn’t go through walls. So that means your communication is really confined to the particular room. Nobody can listen in from outside, so it offers you a lot of security,” he added. The team is seeking funding to help make the technology widespread within five years.

P.V Krishnamoorthy, former Director General of Doordarshan, recalls moments of joy and despair when I-Day became a reality
Seventy years ago, P. V. Krishnamoorthy, a programme assistant in the Tamil unit of the external services of the All India Radio (AIR) in Delhi, was just 26 years old, with barely three years of experience. As he could not make it to Parliament on the night of August 14, he was keen on being present at the studio of the AIR.
He was tasked with the crucial assignment of carrying out recordings of the historic event, and moreover, such recordings had to be made available in other languages including Chinese, Japanese and Burmese. As the clock approached five minutes to midnight, Sucheta Kripalani, a prominent member of the Congress, who would go on to become the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, rendered melodiously the first stanza of ‘Vande Mataram’. Then came the inspiring speech of Jawaharlal Nehru.
Having studied English literature at the Yangon University in Myanmar [earlier known as Rangoon University, Burma], Mr. Krishnamoorthy enjoyed “every bit” of Nehru’s “faultless, excellent” speech. But what struck him the most about the speech was Nehru’s reference to the absence of Mahatma Gandhi in Delhi on the occasion of the country’s first Independence Day. Gandhiji was in Kolkata — then reeling under communal riots — to bring about harmony. Referring to Nehru’s observations on the need to wipe the tears of the poor, Mr. Krishnamoorthy, who became the first Director General of Doordarshan (DD) in 1976 and held the post for three years, feels that those words remain relevant today. “Have we wiped the tears of the poor?” he asks. Along with his recollection of cycling around Delhi to observe how the people were celebrating their very first Independence Day, he also speaks of “terrible killings” that took place there a few days later. He recollects vividly the “small role” he played in saving the life of a Muslim watchman. It took some time for the government to bring the situation under control.
Even against a backdrop of gloom, Mr. Krishnamoorthy is able to spot some finer qualities among the affected people. Speaking of refugees who came from what was then western Punjab [now part of Pakistan], he says, “They didn’t want the dole. They wanted to stand on their own feet. They wanted to work and earn a decent living. Despite losing all their properties [in Pakistan], they did not lose hope.”
The role of TV
Mr. Krishnamoorthy is a veteran broadcast journalist who played a key role in the production of 1,320 hours of television programmes on science education in four languages, which were beamed to 2,400 remote villages in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Odisha and Bihar through a satellite lent by NASA [the U.S. space agency]. He says, “For this country, television, a powerful medium, should be used for development and social upliftment. At the same time, I am not against entertainment being accorded importance, but there should be proportion.”
He adds that AIR and DD should remain public service institutions.
