5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Motorola has thrown its full weight behind Internet Protocol (IP) commmunications, and announced it intends to base all of business networking systems on the technology. Wireless communications in the form of cellular and private networks, satellite connections, copper networks, paging and hybrid fibre-coax (HFC) broadband systems will all soon be based on IP. All these services will be provided through a new unified architecture, the company said. However, it gave no indication as to when any of this will take place. Motorola made the announcement as it introduced the first ever cable modem/voice-over-IP interface combo, based on the recently ratified Simple Gateway Control Protocol (SGCP) for providing homes with IP services. The Multimedia Terminal Adaptor (MTA-1) combines a Motorola DOCSIS cable modem with a Vanguard SGCP voice-over-IP gateway. It connects to conventional US telephony equipment though an RJ-11 interface. ®
