    Reliance Jio 4G VoLTE technology: Here s how voice-calls will work

    Reliance Jio 4G is now open for all: From VoLTE to LTE to 4G we explain what you’re getting into with Jio service.

    Written by Swapnil Mathur | Updated: September 6, 2016 3:41 pm

    Reliance Jio 4G SIM preview offer: From VoLTE to LTE to 4G, all you need to know about the technology. (Source: Reuters)

    With Reliance Jio shaking up the market with the announcement of their 4G service, there seems to be a growing confusion among buyers regarding the technology the network will deploy. We have a small guide to help you work through the various terms such as VoLTE, LTE, 4G and the likes so that you know exactly what you’re getting into with the Reliance Jio service.

    VoLTE stands for Voice over LTE and is a new protocol for transmitting voice data over the LTE network. While 2G and 3G networks are circuit-switch based, 4G or LTE networks utilise Packet Switching. When a call is made over a 2G or a 3G network, a certain amount of network bandwidth is assigned to that call as a pipeline, which does not terminate till the call ends. On a VoLTE network, voice calls are broken up into packets of information, sent over the full data pipeline and then reconstructed at the receiver’s end. The result is that voice information can be carried over a higher bandwidth pipe, resulting in better call quality.

    LTE and VoLTE is NOT the same

    It is essential to understand that LTE (also referred to as 4G-LTE) is a wholly IP-based communications protocol. Existing carriers have all 2G,3G and 4G setups on their network, allowing data to go through the 4G band while pushing calls through the 2G/3G band. While LTE is the next generation data transmission protocol with higher two-way bandwidth, it is capable of only transmitting data. VoLTE is the way in which a voice call can be converted to digital packets and transmitted over the LTE network. In effect, VoLTE is a subset of the LTE technology.

    Reliance Jio’s network is purely LTE, and does not have any 2G and 3G bands and as such, calls made on this network will only be VoLTE based. Therefore, in order to use the feature, you must have a handset which is VoLTE enabled. While VoLTE is baked into most of the modern Qualcomm and several Mediatek SoCs, the feature may not be enabled on the handset and can be done so by means of a software update to be pushed out by the handset manufacturer.

    A phone may be able to use the LTE network, but the VoLTE feature is separate and as such, must be enabled. If you have an LTE enabled phone, you can use the data services of the Jio SIM. In order to make calls over the Reliance Jio network, you must either use the sim in a VoLTE enabled phone, or an LTE enabled phone running the JioJoin app (available only on Android phone running Version 4.0 and up).

    Its probably not the best to turn off data on your cellphone if you’re on the Reliance Jio network. Since all traffic on the network is running over a data line, disabling data would effectively put the phone in the equivalent of airplane mode. It should be mentioned that Reliance has clarified that data usage towards voice calls will not be counted towards the data allotment of the monthly plans.

    HD Calling is being touted as a major feature of the VoLTE saga, but there is a caveat. Calls are in HD only if the parties engaged in a phone call are both on Reliance’s Jio network The call has to originate and terminate on a VoLTE enabled handset. You can still make and receive calls from other networks, but they won’t be in the higher quality standard that you can expect from a VoLTE call.

    Authentication single sign on

    Authentication single sign on

    1. Wireless Auto Configuration determines the wireless network profile to use. If the wireless client has already successfully performed authentication with computer credentials, the currently connected wireless network profile is used. If the determined wireless profile is configured to perform authentication with only computer credentials, no additional wireless authentication with user credentials is needed. Steps 2 through 6 assume that the selected wireless profile is configured to perform authentication with user credentials, has Single Sign-On enabled, and the setting Perform immediately before User Logon is selected.
    2. The user types his or her credentials for user logon and wireless authentication (if needed) and initiates the user logon.
    3. Windows displays a message to the user that it is attempting to connect to the wireless network name.
    4. Windows attempts to perform a wireless network authentication with user credentials. If the Allow additional dialogs to be displayed during Single Sign-On setting is enabled and the EAP type needs to display additional dialog boxes to the user, Windows displays the dialog boxes. If wireless authentication does not successfully occur within the Max delay for connectivity (in seconds), wireless authentication is abandoned. If the setting This network uses different VLAN for authentication with machine and user credentials is selected, Windows performs a DHCP renewal of the IP address configuration of the wireless network adapter when the wireless authentication is successful.

    How to get the best mortgage rate #what #are #points #on #a #mortgage #rate

    How to Get the Best Mortgage Rate

    You can trust that we maintain strict editorial integrity in our writing and assessments; however, we receive compensation when you click on links to products from our partners and get approved. Here’s how we make money .

    Buying a home is a huge financial commitment. Finding the right mortgage (and how to get the best mortgage rate) can be a confusing process — especially for first-time homebuyers. Comparison shopping is the key to getting the best deal, and you’ll want to ask yourself, “How much house can I afford ? before getting too far into the process.

    Here are six important questions to consider when deciding which mortgage is right for you:

    1. Should I get a fixed- or adjustable-rate mortgage?

    Mortgages generally come in two forms: fixed or adjustable rate. Fixed-rate mortgages lock you into a consistent interest rate that you’ll pay over the life of the loan. The part of your mortgage payment that goes toward principal plus interest remains constant throughout the loan term, though insurance, property taxes and other costs may fluctuate.

    The interest rate on an adjustable-rate mortgage fluctuates over the life of the loan. An ARM usually begins with an introductory period of 10, seven, five or even one year, during which your interest rate holds steady. After that, your rate changes based on an interest rate index chosen by the bank.

    ARMs look good to a lot of homebuyers because they usually offer lower introductory rates. But remember, your rate could go up after your introductory period, so be sure you’re comfortable with the chance your monthly mortgage payment could rise substantially in the future. As you try to figure out how to get the best mortgage rate. Use the terms of the loan to calculate what your payment might look like in different rate scenarios.

    2. Should I pay for points?

    A point is an upfront fee — 1% of the total mortgage amount — paid to lower the ongoing interest rate by a fixed amount, usually 0.125%. For example, if you take out a $200,000 loan at 4.25% interest, you might be able to pay a $2,000 fee to reduce the rate to 4.125%.

    Paying for points makes sense if you plan to keep the loan for a long time, but since the average homeowner stays in his or her house for about nine years, the upfront costs often outweigh interest rate savings over time.

    Alternatively, there are negative points. It’s the opposite of paying points: A lender reduces its fees in exchange for a higher ongoing interest rate. It’s tempting to reduce your upfront fees, but the additional interest you pay over the life of the loan can be significant. Carefully consider your short-term savings and your long-term costs before taking negative points.

    3. How much should I expect to pay in closing costs?

    Closing costs usually amount to about 3% of the purchase price of your home and are paid at the time you close, or finalize, the purchase of a house. Closing costs are made up of a variety of fees charged by lenders, including underwriting and processing charges, title insurance fees and appraisal costs, among others.

    You’re allowed to shop around for lower fees in some cases, and the Loan Estimate form will tell you which ones those are. Shopping for the right lender is a good way to find the best mortgage rate, and save money on a mortgage and associated fees.

    4. Do I qualify for any special programs?

    Before you settle on a mortgage, find out if you’re eligible for any special programs that make home-buying less costly. For example:

      • VA loans. If you or your spouse are active military or veterans, you might qualify for a VA loan. Such loans allow low (or no) down payments and offer protections if you fall behind on your mortgage.
      • FHA loans: Like VA loans, an FHA loan allows low down payments, but they’re open to most U.S. residents. They’re popular with first-time homebuyers, because they require as little as 3.5% down and are more forgiving of low credit scores than traditional lenders.
      • USDA loans. If you live in a rural area, the USDA might give you a low- or no-down-payment mortgage and help cover closing costs. Like VA loans, USDA loans can also offer help if you fall behind on your payments.
      • First-time homebuyer programs: If this is your first go-round in the homeownership process, check out the HUD website for helpful information and a list of homebuyer assistance programs in your state.

    5. How much can and should I put down?

    Generally speaking, a lower down payment leads to a higher interest rate and paying more money overall. If you can, pay 20% of your home’s purchase price in your down payment. However, if you don’t have that kind of cash, don’t worry. Many lenders will accept down payments as low as 5% of your home’s purchase price.

    Be aware: Low-down-payment loans often require private mortgage insurance. which adds to your overall cost, and you’ll probably pay a higher interest rate. Put down as much as you can while maintaining enough of a financial cushion to weather potential emergencies. As you ask potential lenders how to get the best mortgage rate. many will tell you that the more money you put down, the lower your rate will be.

    NerdWallet s mortgage rate tool can help you see rates available to you with varying downpayments and purchase prices.

    Home Bed and Mattress Review and Comparison

    7 average firmness based on 8 review(s)

    Serta Perfect Sleeper

    The causes of sleep deprivation vary among individual sleepers. While you may have trouble falling to sleep because of restlessness, your neighbor across the street may wake up numerous times during the night to use the bathroom. According to many sleep studies and reviews on the Serta Perfect Sleeper. mattresses are the most common cause of poor sleep. Therefore, you should take the time to research Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses to find the type of mattress that addresses your sleeping problems.

    Serta collaborated with the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) to enhance the Perfect Sleeper mattress line. Reviews for Serta Perfect Sleepers invariably mention at least one of the features that mitigate any of the following sleep problems caused by mattresses.

    � Lack of support that leads to back pain
    � Temperature extremes
    � Tossing and turning
    � Mattress impressions
    � Partner disturbance

    The Features Discussed in Perfect Sleeper Reviews Serta has introduced a wide range of Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses, each of which possesses similar features. The company differentiates Serta Perfect Sleeper models by offering additional features.

    Total Edge Foam Encasement

    The total edge foam encasement provides stronger edges and more sleeping surface for users. This feature prevents partners from bumping into each other during the night. The stronger edges eliminate the potential for a sleeper to fall from the bed.

    StabL-Base Double Beam Foundation

    Double beam construction provides support across the entire underneath section of Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses. Reviews on Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses point out how the StabL-Base foundation ensures durability and maintains back stability.

    Continuous Support Innerspring

    Many of the reviews for Serta Perfect Sleepers mention how innerspring coils cover the entire body length to provide superior spinal alignment support. The innerspring system comprises rows of continuous coil springs that run across the length side of the mattress. Coils attached to each other provide more stability and eliminate mattress sags caused by body impressions.

    Advanced Comfort Quilt

    Uncomfortable outer mattress layers that can itch or cause wild temperature swings cause much of the tossing and turning that we experience. According to Serta, the Perfect Sleeper delivers advanced comfort on the sleeping surface that reduces sleep disruptive tossing and turning. The quilted fluffy fibers also improve blood circulation and reduce pressure points.

    Serta offers a vast array of optional features that further improve Serta Perfect Sleeper performance. Perfect Sleepers reviews differentiate between the type of foam used to fill the inner portion of the Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress. While latex foam responds to body temperature changes by expelling body moisture, memory foam addresses body position and comfort issues. The type of foam utilized for inner mattress composition comes down to personal preference.

    Serta recommends that customers test the different features and mattress options that enhance comfort before making a final purchasing decision. Remember that comfort is what you feel when you are supine on the mattress surface. The fewer comfort layers, the closer you sleep to the support system.

    Here are your comfort choices:

    � Serta Pillow Top Mattress
    � Serta Euro Top Mattress
    � Serta Plush Mattress
    � Serta Firm Mattresses

    Serta offers the Perfect Sleeper mattress line in sizes that range from Twin to California King. There has historically been a cavalier attitude towards getting good night�s sleep. Many people view sleep deprivation as a medal that designates their tireless dedication to work and family. Nevertheless, recent medical research proves that poor sleep can lead to myriad health problems, some of which can morph into life threatening conditions. If you consider yourself a sleepless warrior, the time has come to drop the false pretense of valor and start researching Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress reviews to find the right mattress that provides undisturbed sleep.

    2014 Update

    Serta updated its Perfect Sleeper line for 2014 with enhanced features and new models for its three collections, Essentials. SmartSurface. and SmartSurface Elite. The four Perfect Sleeper Essentials models are Prestbury Super Pillow Top. Prestbury Firm. Prestbury Plush. and Grenquist Firm.

In SmartSurface and SmartSurface Elite. it is the Free Flex version with TrueSense coil design for more conformity and 25% greater support in the middle third of the coil unit. The Free Flex coil count is 814.

    The quilted cover has been enhanced in the two upper collections of Perfect Sleeper mattresses. The quilting includes foam with MicroSupport Gel to make it more supportive.

    There is perhaps no phrase more hackneyed in the corporate world than: “good ethics is good business”. Against the image of the ruthless business baron who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of wealth and power, the slogan tells us there is no friction between being good and being successful.

    As luck should have it (for corporations that is) it is argued organisations can stand up and be righteous about their do-gooding, and this will actually lead to the achievement of self-interested business results. The cake can be had and eaten.

    But does this ethical catch phrase really hold sway in the corporate world? Events this September suggest not.

    The month of the corporate scandal

    September 2015 was mired in corporate scandal. German car manufacturer Volkswagen was raked over the coals for installing software in its cars that ensured it falsely passed emission tests. Eleven million cars were involved over a period of seven years. VW’s CEO Martin Winterkorn resigned over the affair and now faces possible criminal charges .

    American corporation Turing Pharmaceuticals was publicly vilified for its predatory pricing when it raised the price of the drug Daraprim by 4000%. This is a drug used to treat infections associated with HIV and AIDS. Turing’s CEO Martin Shkreli was described by the Washington Post as “the most hated man in America”.

    In Australia trouble arrived at convenience store chain 7-Eleven when the ABC’s documentary series Four Corners revealed its use of exploitative and illegal work practices to reduce its labour costs. Employees were being paid less than half the legal minimum wage. Young and foreign workers were especially targeted. The scandal saw the resignations of 7-Eleven’s chairman Russ Withers, and its CEO Warren Wilmot.

    Bad ethics is good business

    Each of these scandals has been scrutinised in terms of business ethics. We are not talking here about contentious and nuanced debates about the nature of morality. In these cases the ethical issues relate to cheating, lying, deception, law breaking, exploitation, and merciless profiteering. As far as any common understanding of ethics is concerned these things are on the far side of the thick and grey line that separates right from wrong.

    What do these cases have in common? Each one suggests there was an ethos in place in these corporations that held that “bad ethics is good business”. Seven years of highly orchestrated cheating at VW meant increased sales. In 2009 VW became the world’s biggest car manufacturer .

    Institutionalised wage fraud and labour exploitation at 7-Eleven kept store costs down, increasing profits both for franchisees and (especially) for the parent company. 7-Eleven has twice been names Australia’s “franchisor of the year”. Price gouging at Turing meant a drug listed on The World Health Organization’s essential medicines list could bolster the company’s profits by exploiting the sick and vulnerable.

    Just don’t get caught

    The “bad ethics is good business” approach was going well for these businesses until they got caught. These three cases have triggered debates still raging in all sectors of society. Heads have rolled and bottom lines are jeopardised.

    Does this really confirm that “bad ethics is bad business”? Of course not. There is no doubt many other corporations are profiting handsomely from deceit, lies, fraud and exploitation. The scandals of September 2015 show that “bad ethics is good business … unless you get caught”.

    It’s not just about not getting caught. It is also about the political, legal, social and economic implications of being found out. In the cases of VW, 7-Eleven and Turing there has been a massive public and media outcry about their reprehensible and selfish behaviour.

    Bringing these corporations to justice was not the work of one heroic individual, nor the result of government action. It was a collective effort that involved NGOs, scientists, academics, politicians, the media and the general public. This was a victory of civil society and democratic dissent.

    So, we can reformulate our proposal: “Bad ethics is good business … unless you get caught … and as long as you aren’t the subject of a public outcry”.

    Democratic business ethics

    When corporations speak of business ethics their idea is that they can keep it all in house. The ethics of business is largely seen as a matter of corporate self-regulation so that pesky outsiders won’t stick their noses into corporate affairs. The September scandals suggest an entirely different ethics.

    If we want ethics in business, what we need is more corporations being caught and more public outcry. For business ethics to be effective they must be pushed onto corporations against their will. Business ethics is democratic, not corporate.

    What we can learn from the business events of September is that ethics cannot be left to corporations themselves. Business ethics requires a vigilant democracy where the public and its institutions will hold corporations to account for their actions.

    Business ethics, to borrow a phrase, is about keeping the bastards honest.
