conveniently with anyone, anywhere and at any time in many different ways - voice, data, facsimile, e-mail, image and video and all this at an affordable cost judging by the mushrooming number of internet cafes at every corner. Thus modern society has effectively been reduced to a global village and information exchange has experienced an enormous explosion. However, it is also said that the biggest hurdle to the full deployment of this technology is posed by the worlds fragmented telecommunications networks especially in developing countries. The colossal growth in this market has forced scientists and engineers to address the issue of the ever-increasing demand.

In Bangladesh the bulk of international telecommunication traffic still relies on the geo-stationary satellite and terrestrial

microwave link system operated by the Bangladesh Telegraph and Telephone Board (BTTB).

Unfortunately, Bangladesh is well known for its monsoon rains and the annual floods. As seen from the satellite photograph in Figure 1, the flatness combined with the large number of rivers in Bangladesh makes it particularly prone to becoming water logged during the rainy seasons.

Despite system allowances for a large rain fade margin in this region, the handling capacity of the satellite links is reduced especially under adverse conditions. Also, floods (or any other water surface) can cause signal interference due to multi-path

propagation as it travels through the microwave radio links. However, these are only the minor problems for the countrys telecommunication system. The major

natural disasters such as cyclones, high Figure 1: Satellite (obtained photograph from of winds and tidal waves originating from the Bay of Bengal that cause substantial physical damage to the towers and other equipment are by far the most significant problems. The 1991

Faced with the aforementioned fundamental shortfalls of a satellite-based system, real interest in optical communication was aroused with the invention of the laser in early 1960's. Proposals for using optical

capacity per beam is strongly affected by rain. For example, to provide the same quality of transmission during a rainy period, the capacity may have to be halved.

many unrivaled advantages, some of which are listed below: 1. Enormous potential bandwidth: the optical carrier frequency in the range 10 to 13 Hz offers the potential for a fiber information carrying capacity that is many orders of magnitude in excess of that obtained using copper cable or wideband radio systems. This enables fibers to simultaneously carry voice, data, image and video signals.

5. Low transmission loss: with losses as low as 0.2 dB/km, this feature alone has become a major advantage of optical fiber as extremely wide repeater spacings (70 to 100km) may be used in long-haul

communication links. This in turn reduces both system cost and complexity.

The second and third generation cables have extended digital connectivity to the South Pacific, South East Asia and other points. Two of such global submarine cable networks that are in the vicinity of Bangladesh are the South East Asia, Middle East and Western Europe (SEA-MEWE) and the Fiber Link Around the Globe (FLAG) long haul backbones respectively. For example, Figure 3 shows the 39,000 km long route taken by SEA-ME-WE-3 cable network that was started in early 1997 and took two and a half years to complete. It is an SONET cable system that uses the latest wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology and provides the platform to launch innovative wideband services.

inefficiencies of the latter: SONET has large fixed bandwidth granularity (1.5Mb/s, 50 Mb/s, 150 Mb/s, 600 Mb/s etc.,) leading to stranded capacity. Gigabit Ethernet or Optical Ethernet, on the other hand offers bandwidth in small granular increments (1 Mb/s).

Another one of the key capabilities of this technology is that it is cost competitive in the 40-70 km range and therefore suited to MAN applications; it is eight times cheaper than either SONET or ATM.

Therefore a color image can be represented by 3 dimensional matrices. Size = (no of rows X no of columns X 3 colors).

represents number of columns and z represents the RGB plane, then f(x, y, z) is used to represent intensity at position (x, y, z). If we use 8 bits to represent intensity of each color, then we can represent 28 intensities (levels), i.e. from 0 to 255 levels. Therefore the value of f(x, y, z) lies in between 0 to 255 (0 to L-1), where L represents number of levels.

improved by adding some suitable noise to the input image signal but the original image processing system is kept unchanged.

The main point under consideration is that the noise-free pixels must remain unchanged. The main focus will be on: Three types of SR noises are investigated here. They are Gaussian SR noise (GaSR), uniformly distributed SR noise (UnSR), and two peak SR noise (TwSR). The adjustable parameters of the GaSR and UnSR are means () and variances (2) Probability 1.

When the images are transmitted over channels, they are corrupted with impulse noise due to noisy channels. This impulse noise consists of large positive and negative spikes. The positive spikes have values much larger than the background and thus they appear as bright spots, while the negative spikes have values smaller than the background and they appear as darker spots. Both the spots for the positive and negative spikes are visible to the human eye. Also, Gaussian type of noise affects the image. Thus, filtering for both impulse noise and Gaussian noise is required before processing. There are lots of classical and fuzzy filters in the literature to remove noise. The classical filter are the mean filter, the weighted filter, the adaptive weighted filter, the adaptive Wiener filter, the Gaussian filter, the median filter, the adaptive median filter, and the extended mean filter.

Adaptive weighted mean filter is similar to mean filter where the gray level is replaced by a weighted average of the gray values. Weights are calculated from the gray-level difference. If this difference exceeds a certain threshold, then the pixel is a noise pixel. Adaptive Weiner filter replaces the center value of the pixel by sum of the local mean value and a fraction of contrast, where this fraction depends on the local estimation of the variance .

techniques include point to point mapping of The mean filter or the average filter helps in smoothing operations. It suppresses the noise that is smaller in size or any other small fluctuations in the image. It involves in calculating the average

The most common technique includes global histogram Stochastic Resonance - An Outline: The term stochastic resonance (SR) is given to a phenomenon that appears in non-linear systems whereby the addition of noise to a system enhances its performance. The effect requires three basic ingredients: a form of threshold, a source of noise and generally a week or sub-threshold input signal. It is fundamentally a threshold phenomenon. The deterministic transition of the signal either to high (one) or low (zero) depends on the value of threshold. Threshold is taken as the 1. Minimum mean brightness error bihistogram equalization.

ABSTRACT

In recent years, periodic patterns are gaining much importance, so various periodicity detection algorithms were developed. Time series database is a collection of data gathered at certain intervals to reflect certain behaviour of an entity. By analysing time series database we can find how frequent a particular pattern is present and the number of occurrences can be counted. Temporal regularity of a pattern can be found using periodic pattern mining technique. Periodic pattern mining can be used to find periodicity of many real life problems and can be used for prediction. Various are

The mining technique can convert the extracted data to understandable format. Data mining task can be either automatic or semiautomatic. This technique helps in extracting previously unknown interesting patterns, unusual behaviour and other dependencies. Several data mining techniques are available and are emerging today.

In this paper we deal various periodicity detection in time series database. Time series database is a collection of data gathered at regular intervals of time. The data will be a sequence of data values which

To efficiently handle different types of noise, WARP can be extended or shrinked on the time axis at various locations and this helps in removing the noise efficiently.

It was observed that the data can be transmitted through LED light. If there will be an LED, there will be data. Whether you are using wireless internet in a coffee shop or trying to steal it from the guy next door or competing for bandwidth at a conference, you have probably gotten frustrated at the slow speeds you face when more than one device is tapped into the network.

Through this technique has taken the optical part of fibre optics and sending data through light bulbs [1]. It was called D-light, can produce data rates faster than 10 megabits per second which is speedier than your average broadband connection.

LiFi is transmission of data through illumination by taking the fiber out of fiber optics by sending data through a LED light bulb that varies in intensity faster than the human eye can follow.Li-Fi is the term some have used to label the fast and cheap wireless-communication system, which is the optical version of Wi-Fi. The term was first used in this context by Harald Haas in his TED Global talk on Visible Light Communication. At the heart of this technology is a new generation of high brightness Harald light-emitting from the diodes, says

More sophisticated techniques could dramatically increase VLC data rate. Terms at the University of Oxford and the University of Edinburgh are focusing on parallel data transmission using array of LEDs, where each LED transmits a different data stream. Other group are using mixtures of red, green and blue LEDs to alter the light frequency encoding a different data channel.Li-Fi, as it has been dubbed, has already achieved blisteringly high speed in the lab. Researchers at the Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin, Germany have reached data rates of over 500 megabytes per second using a standard white-light LED.

3. LI-FI AT A GLANCE

The LED bulb will hold a microchip that will do the job of processing the data. The light intensity can be manipulated to send data by tiny changes in amplitude. This technology uses visible spectrum of light, a part of the electromagnetic spectrum that is still not greatly utilized. In fact the technology transfers thousands of streams of data simultaneously, in parallel, in higher speed with the help of special modulation using unique signal processing technology.

4. HOW IT WORKS

This brilliant idea was first showcased by Harald Haas from University of Edinburgh, UK, in his TED Global talk on VLC. He explained, Very simple, if the LED is on, you transmit a digital 1, if its off you transmit a 0.

causing the light source to appear to be on continuously, even though it is in fact 'flickering'. This invisible on-off activity enables a kind of data transmission using binary codes: switching on an LED is a logical '1', switching it off is a logical '0'. Information can therefore be encoded in the light by varying the rate at which the LEDs flicker on and off to give different strings of 1s and 0s. This method of using rapid pulses of light to transmit information wirelessly is technically referred to as Visible Light Communication (VLC), though its potential to compete with conventional Wi-Fi has inspired the popular characterisation Li-Fi.

Imagine only needing to hover under a street lamp to get public internet access, or downloading a movie from the lamp on your desk. There's a new technology on the block which could, quite literally as well as metaphorically, 'throw light on' how to meet the ever-increasing demand for high-speed wireless connectivity. Radio waves are replaced by light waves in a new method of data transmission which is being called Liwww.ijrfe.com

rapidly increasing reliable signal is bound to suffer. Speed and security are also major concerns. They are vulnerable to hackers as it penetrates through walls easily. LI-FI is said to overcome this. This new technology is comparable to infrared remote controls which send data through an LED light bulb that varies in intensity faster than the human eye can see. In near future we can see data for laptops, smart phones and tablets transmitted through the light in a room.

And, as Haas mentions in his TED Talk, Li-Fi has 10,000 times the spectrum of Wi-Fi, so maybe we can, I dunno, delegate red light to priority medical data. Code Red!

savings from proper monitoring at a single power plant can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Li-Fi could offer safe, abundant connectivity for all areas of these sensitive locations. Not only would this save money related to currently implemented solutions, but the draw on a power plants

The best Ive heard so far is that passengers will "soon" be offered a "highspeed like" connection on some airlines. United is planning on speeds as high as 9.8 Mbps per plane. Uh, I have twice that capacity in my living room. And at the same price as checking a bag, I expect it. Li-Fi could easily introduce that sort of speed to each seat's reading light.

6.4 Undersea Awesomeness: Underwater ROVs, those favourite toys of treasure seekers and James Cameron, operate from large cables that supply their power and allow them to receive signals from their pilots above. ROVs work great, except when the tether isnt long enough to explore an area, or when it gets stuck on something. If their wires were cut and replaced with light say from a submerged, high-powered lamp then they would be much freer to explore. They could also use their headlamps to communicate with each other, processing data autonomously and referring findings

The average New Yorker may not know what the protocols are for those kinds of disasters. Until they pass under a street light, that is. Remember, with Li-Fi, if theres light, youre online. Subway stations and tunnels, common dead zones for most emergency communications, pose no obstruction. Plus, in times less stressing cities could opt to provide cheap high-speed Web access to every street corner.

8. CONCLUSION

The possibilities are numerous and can be explored further.If this technology can be put into practical use, every bulb can be used something like a Wi-Fi hotspot to transmit wireless data and we will proceed toward the cleaner, greener, safer and brighter future.The concept of Li-Fi is currently attracting a great deal of interest not least because it may offer a genuine and very efficient alternative to radio-based wireless.

Second, the framework discriminates those steps in the materials management process that are straightforward applications of methods from those steps that are decisions. For these decisions, that are critical to the performance of the materials management process, the research introduces the concept of a decision model and describes how such models can be incorporated into an advanced materials management system. This phase of the research developed a structured systems design of distributed, integrated decision support systems for materials management of the electrical contractor.

ABSTRACT The project aims to develop various network utilities which are required to effectively monitor a LAN network.It aims to develop an integrated software solution that allows a network administrator to remotely monitor his LAN by his cell. In a concern, computers are grouped together to form a network to manage and control activities of network while in office is an easy task, but while you are outstation/away from office to monitor and controlling of network instead of depending on third party information you can always have your cell phone serve the purpose login anytime to application and see who is busy with what in the office. This project is to provide the maximum details about the network to the administrator on their mobile phone, when administrator when administrator is away from office/goes out station. Sitting at home you want to learn the LAN status. You can do so by storing this project in your cell phone and executing the same. In the era of project mobile devices, wireless devices are widely used and it has penetrated every part of our life,but remote monitoring of network through mobile device is still a mirage, this project is an effort to make this mirage a reality, and this is where the genesis of this of this project lies. Consider a LAN setup with the server machine connected to GSM service provider via a GSM modem. The interaction between the clients and the wireless media happens 1. INTRODUCTION through this server.

communication is unidirectional it is not two way.The mobile used can be any mobile having GSM facility in it. Also the administrator can check the network load on the LAN by typing only a command. In this also serial USB interface and set of commands is used for administrator to communicate to clients. Fig.1: Architecture of mobile(GSM) Based LAN monitoring and control.

The efforts that have been made regarding developing a LAN monitoring system are increasing every day. But a lot of them are still in their initial stages. One of the softwares that are available inthe market is ActiveXperts SMS Messaging Server but it has quite different application from our project. Active SMS messaging server is windows based software package that enables you to send, receive and process SMS and email messages.

4. BLOCK DIAGRAM OF PROPOSED SYSTEM

From the block diagram of proposed system we see that from mobile SMS is send to server through GSM modem. In SMS there is mobile number of the user, client name and operations to be perform on the client. That SMS is send to server then server recognizes the client from all clients.

By using SMS parser we recognize the SMS User can use his/her mobile phone to query a database in his computer via SMS.LAN fully, by process builder class we perform that process on that client.

Not a word was spoken, I was brought here, I was brought to my living grave.
