Narciso, the unique thing about SAP is that the basic engineering assumption underlying the product is the center (elites if you will) know best. Therefore everything, literally everything, must conform to the SAO engineer’s whim. Napoleanic Law plus German arrogance wtappied into one package. Having German subject object verb syntax in an English/ romance subject verb object world simply piled on to the original insult. Plus an SAP implementation forbids innovation. As do most EU laws. A perfect way to use the Chamber of Commerce vector to hamstring the US forever:

*Technical Warning*

TK - you asked about MoCA a bit back, which allows Ethernet to be run on a residence's existing Coax Cabling.

I run a MoCA Network for Tivo at home, with Bolt VOX 1 TB 4 Tuner DVR and a Bolt Mini VOX all providing Cable Services and Whole House DVR. I don't have Ethernet at the DVR, so I have a simple Motorola MOCA adapter functioning as a router at the POP downstairs connected to Coax and Ethernet (but still behind a PFSense Firewall). I have strongly considered using ActionTec Bonded 2.0 MoCA adapters and connect the Tivo boxes via Ethernet networking as they require this anyways (but separate VLAN from NetGear Managed Switch/PFSense). You cannot get ActionTec 2.5 Bonded MoCA adapters as they are only sold to cable providers, which would provide even higher speeds (grrr). I get about 630-650 Mbps measured by the Tivo boxes OVER TIME.

Items of note:

1. You MUST utilize a PoE (Point of Entry) filter inline, generally where Coax enters the residence (if you have this) . Without this in place, MoCA signals leak out of a home MoCA network which can *allow* an outside bad actor to gain control of your network and/or capture all packets on the network (data compromise anyone?).

2. Many Coax Splitters cause many problems. They all degrade the signals more and more and more, especially for MoCA as many are only 1 GHz. Get a Multiport Port Powered Splitter that goes at least to 2 GHz (MoCA 2.0 ready generally goes 1125-1675 MHz). Your Coax Cabling may have issues, so prepare to troubleshoot. I ran some new 3 GHz cables just for overkill.

3. Tivo community is your friend. Example: https://www.tivocommunity.com/community/index.php?threads/moca-networking-splitter-type.519676/

4. I think ActionTec would be the best adapters to utilize. Get the Bonded 2.0 versions as this can enable 1 Gbps networking and they are sold in pairs and singles.

5. I utilize DSLReports Speed Test for Internet testing as it measures Buffer Bloat which is a network packet backup due to multiple connection factors (visibly slower page loads, for example) . You can use this from devices connected to a MoCA network as long as they have Internet connectivity. I would test FIRST from a computer directly connected to the first secure Ethernet Network Port to understand relative speeds and test at various time periods (traffic does flow).

6. For MoCA only network testing, you can simply transmit a multiple GB file (an ISO for example) between the two connected computers and watch the speed through Windows Task Manager on the Performance tab. The single file allows the pipeline to be filled instead of finding and transmitting multiple files which slows with many smaller files. Try both if you want, will reveal local computer issues like disk access potentially that effect PERCEIVED SPEED.

If you haven't already researched this, it should give you some things to think about. MoCA is a good solution once set up.

I guess so, typos, I think I need more light shining on my keyboard.

Never used SAP. Ran multiple networks for market data. I ran the original IP network which Quotrons used. The old ones ran off custom built Quotron UNIX servers wired via coax cable and were 3270TE. The new Quotron servers ran Unix on IBM boxes and IP Ethernet and PC's.

Bloomberg, before they moved to a network used proprietary cable bundles. All of them home runs they contained red, green, blue video and a control cable. No more than 8 terminals on the back-end device. Need more, get another back=end device with dedicated phone line.Reuters used CO/DEC modems. No more than 4 terminals on one back-end. Need more than that, add another back end with a dedicated phone line. Track-Data ran on coax, need to move or add one you better where the two terminal cable resistors were.

In the history of financial firms Telcom, wiring and market data ran out of one pre-IT office. The Movell servers and networks ran on their own proprietary OS and Novell network protocol.

I got to Schroders half way through the Quotron migration to PC's with a dedicated IP network separate from the IT network.

What a nightmare that was and to make it worse the trading regularly re-configured their personnel. If they wern't networked you couldn't plug and play. You had to move cables and re-program the phone turrets.

After a few months it became obvious tbat we needed to merge the IP and Novell networks. What a freaking battle that was. The head IT guy thought my boss should report to him. The firm thought otherwise. They were co-equals in reporting.

We finally get a meeting. Me and my boss against their top guy, second-in-command and their Novell CNA administrator. CNA guy doesn't know if it can be done, second-in-command is intrigued with the possibilities, because he'll have access to all our cable runs and it will solve some of his problems delivering their services. Top guy is meh.

My boss says. "Tell 'em, Jim." So as a newly minted paper Novell CNE, I tell them exactly how to do it and I hand the printed instructions to the Novell CNA guy. My boss says, "I see your CNA and raise you with a CNE."

Them, looking at me, "You[re a CNE?" Like I'm a secret weapon that have just learned about. Me, "Yup, and I guarantee that will work."

After consulting with their Novell consultants to confirm what I told them we had a merged network a few days later.

Love it Jim NJ.

I cut my teeth on Windows for Workgroups 3.11 on Token Ring with LanMan/OS2 server. We also ran a Novell stack connecting the Software Development Team to the rest of the Company network.

We developed WINBEEP! Messaging software to send text messages from the computer to text pagers. The paging companies modems operated at 300, 1200, and 2400 baud, I developed a bunch of modem initialization strings for specific modems that we baked into version 2.0 of WINBEEP! . Fun first company to work for in the early 1990's.

I took that experience into a contracting gig for Ford Motor Company, who had similar issues. Great to provide value to the client.

Sorry, didn't realize my post was so long.

I think the closest I came to the SAP situation from the descriptions posted of SAP, was market data integrator firms. They promised custom solutions to get all your market data on your network with added bells and whistles.

I figured, rightly I think, that they were just re-selling a solution that they had built for someone else. The prices were ginormous and the customization fees were even worse.

Over time we got most of our market data applications onto our network. The ones we couldn't had so few users it didn't matter.

Having been a Quotron trainer before joining the firm had some advantages. I was already a Quotron super-user. I knew all the weird things the system could do.

The coolest thing I did with Quotron very early was getting them to host our stock research analysis. And it was a free feature, wouldn't cost us anything, other than us having to duplicate the feature if we left the Quotron world.

Discussed it with my boss, confirmed that Quotron would be happy to provide that to us, went to talk to the director of Research. Explained the concept to him that we could put his research on every Quotron we owned and on the Quotrons of all the firms that cleared through us and were entitled to our research. He was dumb-founded that someone brought him a solution to a distribution problem that he was already researching via a mandate from above.

IT had been consulted and were still trying to figure out how to do it. Within two weeks we implemented the idea. A designated person in research entered the data and Quotron echoed it back to us with a specific identifier. If you were watching scrolling headlines which mostly integrated Dow Jones (with a DJ indicator) and Reuters (with an R indicator) you would see a headline with our own designation. Type in a ticker symbol, use the hot key for news and our stuff was in amongst Dow Jones and Reuters stories. Big hit with the whole firm.

jim nj

PD,

Learned on Windows 3 myself. It was still the dawn of PC's and networking.

Got my CNE in 1995 when all of those networks were still being used. Novell ruled, but UNIX and IP were still in the mix.

There were other market data companies that competed with Quotron in the early 90's. One used Novell servers and a modified Novell network protocol and made fun of Quotron being old-fashioned by using UNIX and IP networks.

They were innovative, but UNIX and IP survive to this day.

At one time Quotron was the largest UNIX shop in the world. They were the ones that created the dynamic files. Ones that didn't need to be closed and re-opened to show newly inputted data.

And to talk about baud takes us way back. In the late 70's i worked for Radiofone based in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. Mobile telephones and pagers. Back then you called a phone number, waited for the computer acknowledgement, and then entered a phone number to display on the pager.

No text, just a number. And it was still such a new technology that pager users thought they could get away with not answering the page.

That's where we driver/technicians came in. We delivered replacement pagers and did education. Some of the complaints were real. Many weren't. We were world-class, but polite, insinuators.

One guy had the NYC route. He was usually home by noon watching TV. I had the NJ shore run, I traveled 50-60 miles before I hit my first customer. In summers I had lunch on the nearest boardwalk. The runs took me as far south as Seaside Heights. What fun.

Montreal (AFP) - The Quebec provincial legislature on Sunday approved a controversial immigration bill that will replace a first-come, first-served standard for accepting migrants with one tied to an applicants' skills.

Under the new law, some 18,000 applications now on file will be shredded, affecting as many as 50,000 people, many of whom already live in the province.

The 18,000 existing applicants will have to restart the immigration process.
