edge

Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) (also known as Enhanced GPRS (EGPRS), or IMT Single Carrier (IMT-SC), or Enhanced Data rates for Global Evolution) is a digital mobile phone technology that allows improved data transmission rates as a backward-compatible extension of GSM. EDGE is considered a pre-3G radio technology and is part of ITU's 3G definition. EDGE was deployed on GSM networks beginning in 2003 – initially by Cingular (now AT&T) in the United States.EDGE is standardized also by 3GPP as part of the GSM family. A variant, so called Compact-EDGE, was developed for use in a portion of Digital AMPS network spectrum.Through the introduction of sophisticated methods of coding and transmitting data, EDGE delivers higher bit-rates per radio channel, resulting in a threefold increase in capacity and performance compared with an ordinary GSM/GPRS connection.
EDGE can be used for any packet switched application, such as an Internet connection.
Evolved EDGE continues in Release 7 of the 3GPP standard providing reduced latency and more than doubled performance e.g. to complement High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA). Peak bit-rates of up to 1 Mbit/s and typical bit-rates of 400 kbit/s can be expected.

    HTTPS interface and Microsoft Edge

    Is it just me, or....... but when I try to access the HTTPS UI logon page in Microsoft Edge the browser does not allow it to be viewed at all. I know other browsers say it is insecure but give you an option to proceed, it seems Edge (on Mac at least) doesn't. If there is a work around I can't...

    Hey Guys, I've just come back to a windows machine after years with a Mac, Stupid question maybe. Does anybody else find that they can't scroll in Dsm windows? I have to manually drag slider bar down. Thanks
