How the world will use the internet in 2015 RELIABLE data about internet traffic is hard to come by. One of the better sources is Cisco's annual Visual Networking Index , which was published on June 1st. Internet traffic, the world's biggest maker of networking gear predicts, will quadruple and reach 80.5 exabytes per month (80 exabytes would fill 20 billion DVDs) by 2015. That year, for the first time, Asia will generate more traffic (24.1 exabytes per month) than North America (22.3 exabytes per month)—although Amercia still beats China (6.9 versus 5.6 exabytes per month).
The goal of DiffProbe is to detect if an ISP is classifying certain kinds of traffic as "low priority", providing different levels of service for them. DiffProbe actively (and non-intrusively) probes the network path and tries to diagnose the nature and extent of traffic discrimination. This page presents a module of DiffProbe, called ShaperProbe. ShaperProbe tries to answer the question: We detect traffic shaping, which means that the customer gets a large rate for a certain number of bytes, and then the rate is dropped automatically to a lower value.
Site Index • Wiki • Blog Verizon DSL Router Caught Red-Handed ! My in-home network was working fine with a Netgear WGR614 ver 7 wireless 4-port Ethernet router using a 192.168.1.1/8 subnet LAN. I signed up for the Verizon DSL service. Verizon's ads show up many on this page in the ad bar on this page.
Common economic wisdom suggests that if markets are free to operate without intervention, the good times will roll. The recent world economic crisis, now sometimes referred to as the Great Recession, seems to suggest a more complex reality. Much of modern economics is based on the assumption that the "human actors" in the "economic drama" behave rationally.
It’s clear from discussions across the supply chain that the industry is considering launching 4K x 2K (3840×2160) resolution TVs, which have four times the information content of current 1080p products. This increase in resolution is a sign of the growing maturity in the TV market, and the price erosion that continues to damage the business. Set and panel makers are seeking the next innovation that can boost pricing. So why 4K x 2K?
Comment First, a declaration of interest. Before I joined El Reg , I was working on an analyst project (PDF/721 KB) with Sydney company Market Clarity led by long-time friend Shara Evans. This project yielded a couple of data points that are relevant to claims about internet piracy in this country. The first is that while most broadband plans in Australia offer very high download allowances these days, household users still average only around 6 to 7 GB per month.
Leading from some conversations over the last couple of weeks I thought I’d have a look to see if there exists any link between EU State Aid rulings for broadband projects and that countries ranking in the fibre league tables. At the moment, this is little more than a work in progress while I try to understand why some countries make a big deal out of EU State Aid rules (UK tends to top the list) and how some countries seem able to make progress more efficiently - please drop me a line if you can help! This is what the data so far seems to suggest: The more fibre you have, the less your Government feels the need to refer decisions to the EU for approval This table ranks EU countries according to the FttH Council League table, along with the the proportion of EU state aid decisions since 2003.
Standards and protocols
National Fibre Optic-based broadband networks are being installed right now in Australia and New Zealand. I read every day criticism about the slow progress, and even the overall justification of these two major projects. Typical of this is “ Why the NBN could be a white elephant “, published by a reputable news source. This journalist bemoans the slowness of progress and questions whether the fibre network could be left behind by the new 4G (LTE) wireless network.
I get questions on telecom, mobile and Internet topics from students in different parts of the world and I try to reply to them all as best I can. One kind of question that comes up repeatedly has to do with "Next Generation Networks" or NGNs - what are they? why are they based on packet technology?

In two previous messages we looked at the question of how hard it will be to get IPv4 address space once the original supply runs out, and how much v4 address space people really need. Today we look at e-mail and IPv6. Of all the applications on the net, mail is probably the one that is least affected by NAT, and will be the least affected by running out of v4 addresses. For one thing, mail doesn't need a whole lot of IP addresses. You can easily put 10,000 users behind mail servers on a single IP, and even a giant mail system is unlikely to need more than a few hundred IPs. (For example, all of Hotmail's inbound servers sit behind 24 IPs.)
Thanks to iPhones, tablets and Netflix, the demand for bandwidth is back, and that’s drumming up interest in expanding and building out fiber networks. Today we think 1 Gbps fiber networks are enough, but soon we’ll need 100 Gbps, and a host of infrastructure companies are gearing up to provide it. Unnoticed by Silicon Valley, telecom is on the move again.
By the end of 2012, South Korea intends to connect every home in the country to the Internet at one gigabit per second. That would be a tenfold increase from the already blazing national standard and more than 200 times as fast as the average household setup in the United States. A pilot gigabit project initiated by the government is under way, with 1,500 households in five South Korean cities wired. Each customer pays about 30,000 won a month, or less than $27. “South Korean homes now have greater Internet access than we do,” said in his last month. Last week, Mr.
