Prüfung nicht bestanden!

Prüfung nicht bestanden.
Nicht in Betrieb nehmen!

Prüfung nicht bestanden! In einem Büro, in dem Elektroinstallation nicht vollkommen neu ist und trotzdem sehr ernst genommen wird. Selber musste ich über 40 werden um zu lernen, dass eine Steckdose eine Prüfung erfahren muss und in dieser auch durchfallen kann. Alles andere als alltäglich, und das obwohl ich sogar in der Licht– und damit Elektro-Branche tätig war.

New Years Resolution

New Years resolutions follow the same procedure as every year.

It’s “write more” this year again. Things noteworthy today include my appointment to the IEEE R8 Committee, in particular to the “Action for Industry” committee.

A similar position existed until two years back, when it was still called the “Industry Relations Subcommittee”. Outreach to industry is of particular focus for IEEE for a while already, while the committees recruit themselves from volunteers. One of the reasons this exists is that IEEE has a (felt?) dominance of academia in it’s membership, or at least in the active volunteer base.

And in 2017 it will be my honor to contribute in this role and change the world toward the better.


Zigbee for #IoT

Dresden Electronic Raspbee

Zigbee is a wireless protocol for applications not requiring lots of bandwidth, e.g. home automation, lighting or sensor networks. The idea is to create so called Personal Area Networks. The specification is standardized as IEEE 802.15.4.

Dresden Electronic offers the Rasbee (Picture to the left) to get started with low budget Raspberry Pi Hardware.

Software Defined Networks

For the most of my career I spent time configuring TCP stacks, IP ACLs, firewall rules and layer2 links. I worked with devices of multiple vendors, pulled together hubs, switches, routers and packet filters, used hardware and software tools to find why an application won’t connect to a remore peer. For the most time. Still, these days are over, since I’ve choosen a career working with customers a few years back. And while the interesst in techology is still there, the desire to dive into cabling and repetitive flipping switches has become very low over the years. Just as everything else in computing has been consumerized by the cloud, the network itself is still manual work (if done properly).

Software-Defined Networks may be here to overcome this perpective.

Having participated in the IEEE Volunteer Leadership Training (VLT) was a great experience. The program was comprised from more than 20 sessions, covering IEEE Bylaws, Publications, Affinity Groups, Educational Activities, MGA and other relevant topics.

In a class with 32 graduates from 19 countries across all continents was a unique opportunity to make new friends!

Special thanks for running the program has to go to Maria Schneider, Cheryl Sinauskas, Loretta Arellano (Chair), Scott Tamashiro, and Ali Abedi
