Alternate forms of wireless communication beyond radiowaves?

Does anyone have any idea as to how frequencies, and the radiospectrum can be made obsolete?

 

Smoke signals.

I'm thinking that this spectrum crunch can be solved with a little bit of innovation.

I have several generations of wireless technology planned out for the future, all of which use spectrum.

Oops, I failed to add to my post, I was thinking of "quantum Internet"

I've forgotten what I was going to summerise all of this with.

 

I have a migraine.

 

What I wanted to get at is if "sub-space" communication is actually feasible. Warp drives are feasible.

 

So, are unjammable forms of communication possible, or not?

 

I mean, you gotta' love those Cylons right?

 

How is Resurrection possible without some form of communication that isn't capped at the speed of light?

I am looking for somewhat of an intellectual discussion. Not a donkey-fest.

Sounds like you're down for nerdiness. I'll show you mine if you show me yours.

 

Anyways,

What I wanted to get at is if "sub-space" communication is actually feasible. Warp drives are feasible.

The problem is, warp travel is inherently unsafe, and communication through it just as bad. As points within the warp often have little relation to their realspace points, messages between even local star systems can take weeks, while across an entire segmentum could take only a day or so - if you're lucky, of course. Additionally, signal fading is a serious concern, as without enough signal strength, a message will arrive distorted, or not at all. And when you're dealing with things that take at least an hour minimum (say, from a ship in orbit to a planet), you don't really have the luxury of error correction. I'd say, as long as you've got the ability to utilize Vox communications (standard radio waves), go for it.

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
