Openscmanager failed - Iperf

You see this error while running iperf on windows. This
error is primarily because you are not running the windows
command prompt in privileged mode.

To remove this error, close your command window. Right
click on the command window option through the start
menu and "run this application as administrator"
Navigate to the location with the iperf executable, and
give it another shot.

This should solve the problem.

60 ghz Wireless Applications (WiGig)

Given that you could now have superior
performance (doing up to 15 Gigabits per second) with
the 60GHz unlicensed radio band, the main
question that comes to mind - What are the
applications of such a technology?

Is it just another technology that finds limited
applications of being a single link? As it turns out
this radio range has long been used for inter-satellite
communications due to the high O2 absorption.
This helps secrecy and avoids any sniffing from within
the earth's atmosphere. Other applications could be
in the direction of TVs connected to set top boxes through
such a connection.

Though this link is limited only by the distance over which
it can be sustained, this radio is now a reality and applications
for this product are only limited by imagination.
