Is Your Wireless Network Ready for Connecting Multiple Devices at Once?

Allion Labs / Cache Her

As wireless network technologies thrive, most smartphones, computers, tablets, and IoT devices are able to connect to the Internet. According to Cisco Annual Internet Report (2018-2023) White Paper, there will be 3.6 networked devices per capita by 2023, up from 2.4 networked devices per capita in 2018. This means that for a family of four, there can be 14.4 (or more) devices sharing the same home network at the same time. In addition, video streaming, online gaming, and many more applications use a lot of bandwidth. How do we make sure that the quality of the Internet won’t get affected as more devices join the wireless network?

How to fix BSOD? Check out Microsoft Windows Dump File Analysis

Allion Labs / Joseph Lin

The Blue Screen of Death, often abbreviated as BSOD, is an error screen displayed on a Windows computer when its operating system (OS) cannot recover from a critical system error. The BSOD indicates a system crash, meaning that the operating system has reached a condition where it cannot operate normally. Many problems can trigger a BSOD, for example, hardware failures, driver issues, or a crucial process terminating unexpectedly.

LTE Routers: Throughput Conversion Performance Review

Allion Labs / Romonz Kao

Mobile communication technologies have been flourishing incredibly in recent years, and 4G LTE has become one of the most compelling innovations. These innovations also give rise to products that support mobile network applications, such as portable routers and LTE routers. LTE routers enable users to share mobile connectivity over Wi-Fi or Ethernet. When LTE routers transmit mobile data via different interfaces, defects in product design or compatibility issues between chipsets and hardware devices might degrade throughput performance.

Fixture Design – the Key Factor to Getting your Cable & Connector Certified

Allion Labs / Paul Chou

With the rapid development of technology, there is a growing demand for high-speed audio and video data transmission. The connectors and cables used by our daily public are gradually upgrading. For example, the specification of HDMI has evolved from HDMI 2.0 to HDMI 2.1, and the transmission rate is enhanced from 6.0 Gbps to 8.1Gbps. Moreover, the speed of USB 3.2 Gen 2 also reached 10 Gbps, and it is expected that USB4 will reach 20 Gbps as well, which is the same as Thunderbolt3.

Four Visual Recognition Applications and Testing Solutions

Allion Labs / Kali Chen

In recent years, image detection technology has been extensively researched and developed by academic institutions to bring the quality of smart cameras to the next level. Smart cameras have become the must-have smart gadgets for home with multifaceted advantages, such as motion detection for home surveillance system. The intelligent video analysis system in smart cameras uses computer vision, machine learning and deep learning technologies to automatically interpret the key information behind images in the same way that human vision does. This visual recognition technology has been widely employed to face recognition, human motion capture, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), and optical character recognition (OCR). In addition, smart cameras will be connected to the cloud-based platform which has implemented visual recognition technologies. It enables data to be stored cyclically in the cloud, which allows camera vendors to cut cost in host or storage equipment investment.

Key factors in Laboratory Automation

Allion Labs/ Shawn Li

Automation is currently the goal of implementation in all areas. Allion is working to transform the testing of each Logo into automation, include instrument automation, data analyzing and capturing data into a formal report. Allion completes all the test data through the instrument automation and then integrates the collected data into a complete report. Via combining these two technologies to complete the automation, it could save labor costs, improve work efficiency and reduce the error rate of human operation.

The Real Threat of Virtual World – A Probe into Vulnerability Detection Tools

Allion Labs/ Jackson Chen

Vulnerability Detection Foundation of Systems Assurance

In the APP development process, information assets and risk management are quite important, but in fact, many companies have no testers or have non-professional testers. To save money, most companies are only focusing on the development of APP instead of testing the potential risks, which might lead to crash down after the APP goes online. The current common platform is Kali Linux, which includes several types of tools for users to use, but we are not limited to this platform, we can still use other tools to make the test more complete.
