In a new weekly tally of white-paper downloads from the ITPapers service, wireless networks and Web services dominate. More-general papers providing background material for VPNs or VoIP topics fill out the remainder of the top-20 list.

Drawn from the activity logs of the ITPapers library, the weekly top 20 provides a snapshot into what IT professionals are actively researching. (ITPapers, an online library of technology white papers, is a service of ZDNet.) The current rankings are drawn from download activity through May 22.
