STRAUSS aims to enable fibre optic networks at more than 100Gbps. MiWEBA will handle capacity by making better use of existing radio frequencies in order to boost ultra-high speed and mobile connections. NECOMA will explore new ways to enhance personal data security in sensitive environments such as medical history records by developing new metrics to evaluate threats and potential impact of cyber attacks. GreenICN will try to ensure an efficient use of energy in information networks. It will test network reliability in post-disaster situations (earthquakes, hurricanes) when energy resources are scarce and network performance is vital. ClouT will try to allow real-time control of sensors enabling smart city operations such as energy use, traffic flow or emergencies. To achieve this target, the project will integrate Cloud Computing and Internet of Things features. FELIX will set up joint EU-Japan experimental platforms that will help universities and research centres test new network technologies. Such new platforms will improve researchers' use of their experimental facilities.
I hope that this means better DATA flow all over the world.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I always thought that having 1.0 gbps meant i would have 1.0 gbps download speeds. that isnt neccesarily true. \
Little did i know the bandwidth of your internet connection is cut in half if you add a modem and split the line.
so for me with a 20 people who use the internet all day at my house, (My mom runs her home office there as well as my dad with several others working with them.) i usually only pull about 100mbps.
Well over the national average i know but still 1000gbps is glorious. i sometimes get pretty near that mark at night when the office is shut down.
i dont reallt know what to do with it.
most websites only allow Mbps of traffic so it is pretty well capped unless you go to special websites.
That has a lot to do with cable internet vs dsl internet. The former assigns x max speed to an area y (say 1gbit/s, 20 houses) with z speed being the max one can get (100 mbit/s). Everyone signs on for 100mbit/s, but not everyone can get it at the same time. (20*100=2000=2gbit/s) Often times the sold overage is much more than 50%.
On top of that, max speed is often measured to their servers. You can max speed to isp servers, but then you try your favourite gigabit ftp and stop at 40mbit even though you are the only user connected.
DSL assigns x max speed to house y, but you are z distance away from the exchange. The further away you are, the less likely you are to max your line...
