Unwired to stream optimized wireless

Faster data transfers on the way

Unwired Australia is providing wireless IP optimization tool Venturi Wireless on its customer homepages.

The technology replaces Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) with Venturi Transport Protocol (VTP) which reduces latency over wireless networks by limiting packet re-requests.

Unwired product manager Jeremy Deutsch said the Australian-first technology, which is available to Unwired Broadband customers for free, will make the most noticeable improvement in data streaming.

"[Venturi] is an optimizer rather than an accelerator because it limits [packet] re-requests rather than compressing data which results in reduced quality," Deutsch said.

"Users will see the biggest difference in streaming content which will be delivered much smoother and more consistently than normal [TCP]. Because Venturi is both hardware and software based, we had to build Venturi hardware into our infrastructure, [therefore] only Unwired users can use the technology."

The software is designed to optimize Wimax and pre-Wimax networks and will be available from the end of this month.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
