DTH for Software Downloads and Updates

Here is an example how i feel a DTH portal can interleave with interactive optical/wireless networks on land.

Let us assume Simtel has a DTH Channel. They broadcast MS updates from 10.00 AM to 10.30 AM. Linux updates at 11.00AM and Mac at 9.00 AM. All updates, some repetitive in gzip format and a advance xml feed indicating and enabling parsing of content on a digital device.

DTH for Software Downloads and Updates

From 1.00 PM to 5.00 PM is subscriber time. “Your favorite software is ‘played’ at these times”. A user can use his phone or tablet to request a media. paid or free. All software will be broadcast at the time slot. With a xml feed/sitemap.

The user transfers the software from dth box to his computer using usb/lan. If he has been mailed dual layer decrypt keys he will be able to unzip the paid software. Else he can look thru the formatted/presented xml for any free software/media he would like to use.

DTH software providers can monetize using software developers to publicize their demo versions. Other firms from computers to toothbrush providers can give a “Media Promotion Pack” with wallpapers/freeware/video/audio/presentations and discounted/free offers.

Auxiliary Software Media DTH Download Box – Reduce Net Congestion

# Either you connect the USB of this Download-Box to Router to make a media server for your Netbooks & Tablets or plug it to your Desktop PC.

# This has a Tiny LCD Touch Screen, Key in the URL & Press Get, Wait. Media ready beep will come in a few secs. Satellite Delays don’t matter.

# Invent something like Satellite Software/Media Download DTH Service – Small dish on Roof, A Stand alone Box with One Tera Byte HDD and USB.

Wired Wi-Fi or WiGig for enhancing Range

You have a big office of 3 Floors or a Home which is not Wi-Fi Friendly and it does not have the provision for LAN or any other wiring. Even a distant room/garage or basement beyond the Wi-Fi range.

Wireless Gigabit Alliance – WiGig 60 GHz

If we could build a Wired interface for Wi-Fi and WiGig then such rooms can be brought within range. A wired interface without wires, then you think of optics, not even optic fiber …. that will build up the cost for home networks.

Wave Guide may be an answer, a wire that pretends to be a waveguide. Let us take a thin flexible plastic tube, 2-3 mm in dia, 1mm wall thickness of tube. The outer wall of the 3mm tube is coated with a suitable copper alloy. Above that a thick insulation to protect from mechanical damage. This may act as a waveguide if properly designed, probably the way or pattern in which the metal is coated.

Fixed WiMAX SoC and RF Module – Fujitsu

If this works in theory, then Pump RF on one end with a little more juice, just like in Optic fibers. The other end may get enough signal strength for good speed connectivity. It will at least be still wi-fi on waveguide and easier to implement than RJ45, these LAN cables, connectors and switches include many components and modules, that make it very fussy and unreliable.

Wi-Fi seems to be very friendly and safety has also improved now. So a wired, one wire or waveguide to extend Wi-Fi can phase out the RJ45. I like RJ45 similar to the sentiments i have for the Printer Port and RS232. Then USB has just taken over. Change is inevitable, Find a way out of RJ45 for good.
