NCompass Live: Technology in Libraries: What's Next?

950 views

Published on

In 1957 an article in Wilson Library Bulletin complained that with the advent of the telephone at the reference desk, librarians couldn't provide appropriate service to patrons that come into the library. These days libraries are trying as hard as they can to provide 24/7 services whether the patron is in the library or not. In this session, Michael Sauers, Technology Innovation Librarian, at the Nebraska Library Commission takes a look at some of the state of the art technologies that are starting to be implemented in libraries today, and then presents technologies that you may not have even heard of yet, that may just change how libraries serve their communities.

Peopleconnect to the balloon networkusing a special Internet antennaattached to their building. Thesignal bounces from balloon toballoon, then to the globalInternet back on Earth.

Data rates of up to 800 Mbit/s werereached by this optical WLAN under laboratoryconditions, while a complete real-time systemexhibited at trade fairs reached data throughput of500 Mbit/s. The newly developed patent protectedcomponents have now achieved a transmission ratein laboratory experiments of over 1 Gbit/s per singlelight frequency. As off-the-shelf LEDs mainly usethree light frequencies or light colors, speeds of upto 3 Gbit/s are feasible."3GBPS "LiFi" via Light Bulbs
