Section 3 / Page79

Networks: -

Below is a picture of a typical high-speed network.

The proposed databases would sit here in this network set-up, as the content provider.

The picture above shows a typical ADSL network set-up, this is only one type of network set-up, many others exist, such as ISDN etc. The point of becoming the content provider was to bypass some of the current day latency problems (i.e. net traffic jams) that normal net use is plagued by.

QOS (quality of service) is currently a big problem for multi-media service providers, but the licensed database concept was seen as a way of side stepping some of these problems. So allowing each connected user an isochronous data stream direct from the networked databases, i.e. a good and fast link between the users and the network. The memory buffering capabilities on most new net appliances, should also alleviate some current software headaches.

Broadband networks are now the norm with bandwidth now generally starting at 2MB for most home and business users. These technologies are making distributed data processing (i.e. grid type technologies), a very real and practical solution, especially within the business world. Wireless networks will increase with the introduction of many new systems, such as Mu-Fi, dual standard WLANs, Openzone, 5G, satellite, plus many companies and governments looking to set up free to access national Wi-Fi type systems, etc. New systems such as symmetric DSL will begin to allow upload speeds to match download speeds thus turning net users into true net publishers. The networks of the future may become less centralised, there may no longer be centralised nodes, just a maturing global infrastructure built increasingly by the systems users. Hopefully Net neutrality, (see section 4), will win out, meaning we the users and not we the military / industrial / complex, will win out?

To apply meaning to all this I have included a terminology breakdown to DSL, click here to see.
