ACPI for ARM?
LWN.net Weekly Edition for November 21, 2013
The biggest problem I have is that I cannot purchase service from an ISP with any sort of latency guarantee.
My current 10Mbps cable modem appears to give me those ten megabits once a second, at the end of every second.
Any sort of low latency ISP available in Somerville, MA?
Book Review: Hacking VoIP
Posted Feb 5, 2009 17:18 UTC (Thu) by forthy (guest, #1525)
I don't know if DSL is commonplace in MA, but give it a try. Here in
Germany, it is, and DSL latency with fastpath (non-interleaved ATM
packets) gives you a latency of a few milliseconds to other endpoints in
the same area. My DSL provider also offers VoIP, but it is in fact more
VoATM, i.e. they have a modified version of the DSL modem, which packs in
the voice stream into then ATM packets, and routes those through the
plain old telephone network (which, on the ATM level, is quite a bit more
modern than TCP/IP ;-).
