(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
As for pausing bittorrents - that's what QoS is for.
GSM security testing: where the action is

I hope the security part is simple and separate from the complex rest.

Yes designing a brand new network is a nice opportunity but... seeing is believing.

On the wide Internet it's probably not going to make much difference, anyway. Voice traffic is fairly narrow-band, even high-quality codecs do not require more than 64Kbit.

Narrow band does not grant immunity from occasional packet loss and high latencies. Only QoS helps in such cases.

Quite often voice and data backbones also use separate circuits, so QoS is not used even there.

This is actually some simple, manual, very coarse form of QoS when you think about it. Simple => works.

LTE is going to use H.323 family of standards for audio/video data
Posted Sep 30, 2010 19:10 UTC (Thu) by Cyberax (✭ supporter ✭, #52523)
H.323 is not going to be used on end-user devices. Which is a saner decision then what I expected from committees. It was still on the table last time I inquired about it, so I'm sorry for misinformation.
