Washington, D.C., broadcast operations

MHz Networks began as a project of the Commonwealth Public Broadcasting Corporation. The broadcaster's original stations were WNVT in Goldvein, Virginia, and WNVC in Fairfax, Virginia, which served the Washington, D.C., television market. International programming began on WNVC in 1996, branded "World View TV". In 2001, the two stations became known as MHz Networks, with WNVC becoming MHz1 and WNVT becoming MHz2.

In the digital television era, WNVC and WNVT placed a set of twelve international news channels on their two signals. The final set of channels consisted of TRT World, CGTN America, CGTN Documentary, Africa Today TV, France 24, CNC World, Arirang, TeleSUR, Deutsche Welle, and Vietnet. Previous channels included NHK World, BVN, Al Jazeera English, Blue Ocean Network, SABC News International, NTA, Ethiopian Television, RT America, RT Spanish, VTV4, Euronews, CNC World, and TRT Türk.[1] Two months before the end of broadcast operations in Washington, on February 1, 2018, RT America was dropped from WNVC's signal, apparently due to concerns that MHz Networks or CPBC would be required to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.[2]

In 2013, Commonwealth Public Broadcasting Corporation spun off the MHz Networks unit and sold the WNVC and WNVT towers. On April 1, 2018, MHz Networks exited the Washington, D.C., market after CPBC sold the stations' channel allocations in the Federal Communications Commission's ongoing spectrum reallocation auction.

DASH7 Alliance

The DASH7 Alliance (D7A) is a group of companies and universities managing the evolution of the Dash7 Alliance protocol. The goal of the group is to create a complete interoperable RF technology to exchange data for wireless sensor networks and devices at a block scale (300m–1 km).

Initially created with the participation of the US DoD and Lockheed Martin in 2009, the group evolved from RFID military needs (ISO-18000-7 support group role), to an industrial generic requirement. The Dash7 Alliance continued to forge an extensive experience in high reliability 433 MHz networks and extended it to 868/915 MHz.

Unlike other protocols, Dash7 Alliance published layered based protocols to ensure interoperability up to the file exchange layers. A complete Open Source implementation, OSS-7, as well as industrial implementations enabled to create a certification lab and organize regular plugfest.

The DASH7 Alliance was a privately held, 501(c)3 not-for-profit trade association founded in February 2009 and headquartered in San Ramon, California. Since 2015, it is a European NGO based in Brussels, Belgium.

Don Matteo

GG45

The GG45 (where GG stands for GigaGate, and 45 is to denote the backward compatibility with the 8P8C modular connector – often colloquially called RJ45) is a connector for high-speed Category 7 cable (generally known as Cat 7) LAN cabling developed by Nexans.

The cabling system was standardized in 2001 as IEC 60603-7-7, and then selected as a worldwide Category 7 cabling standard within ISO-11801.

GG45 connectors provide backwards compatibility for standard 8P8C (8P8C) connectors in a Category 6 cable interface (mode 1), where eight conductors are used for Cat 6 (100/250 MHz) operation.

In addition, GG45 has four additional contacts (two in each extreme corner) that interface with new high-speed Cat 7 600 MHz and Cat 7a 1000 MHz networks. Two twisted pairs are connected to these additional contacts, while the other two twisted pairs remain connected to the original 8P8C connector's most distant pins: 1 and 2; and 7 and 8. A Category 6 or 6A plug uses the original contact positions, but a Category 7 or 7A plug instead uses the contacts located in the four corners and has a protrusion that activates a switch within the jack for the alternative contact positions. This reduces crosstalk within the connector that higher speed data is sensitive to. The key advantage is that the GG45 interface therefore has plenty of headroom, combined with the ability to migrate to higher speed service by upgrading to Category 7A patch cords that activate the switch in the jack.
