RESEARCH 》 Multi-dimensional (Multi-universe) Internet Technology - A Proposal

Kindly watch my detailed Youtube intro video to understand the context:

Currently what we have is a single homogeneous (sort of) WWW Internet. Which we can consider as a single-dimensional network. Here are the reasons why I mean its single-dimensional:

  • common IPv4 address-space (public IP) across the world
  • DNS mapping and domains (namespace across the world)
  • Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) (ICANN) controlling/responsible for domain namespace across the world

What I propose is that we can create complete independent multiple “Internets” with each Internet having its own IP-address space, Domain namespace and an authority to manage Domain names. And these networks/Internets can be entirely IPv4 only based or IPv6 only based.

01 Multi-dimensional Multi-universe Internet Technology

Currently we have only a choice to choose the ISP and by subscribing to their service we get access to single Internet. But with multiple Internets we can have subscriptions to one or multiple Internets just like TV channels as shown below.

02 Multi-dimensional Multi-universe Internet Technology [CDN]

International vs National Internets:
We have currently Internet which is a global WWW. But we can have country specific Internet, community specific Internet, area specific Internet, and so on as shown below with multi-dimensional Internets.

03 Multi-dimensional Multi-universe Internet Technology [CDN]

Community Internets:
So if it is a small community driven Internet it is nothing but an Intranet (sort of). In this case we may no longer need large ISPs. Instead this network can be built and managed entirely by community with public/community funded networking equipment.

04 Multi-dimensional Multi-universe Internet Technology

Country specific Internets:
Unlike existing Internet. Country specific Internet can have a complete Internet infrastructure heavily regulated by local country specific laws. This may help in few situations such as tackling issues like pronography, violence, drugs, etc which a specific country may wish to ban/censor all together. This is not possible with existing scenario. Internet is so vast banning outright any content is simply not always feasible. Sometimes this also means safe Internet for schools, children and family.

Some challenges:
Apart from various advantages having multiple Internets (as discussed above). I can foresee these issues. You can kindly put forward your views :)

  • Case 1: Spanning Domain names across Internets this way. But is this legal ?
    05 Multi-dimensional Multi-universe Internet Technology
  • Case 2: Phishing, security and authenticity ?
  • Case 3: Possibility of Inter-connectivity (some kind of bridging, etc) ?
    So that users connected to WWW can reach WWW2, WWW3 and so on.
    Note: Bridging I mean not L2-bridging. What I mean here is chances/feasibility of Internet Inter-connectivity.

Why and when I got such an idea:
I got this idea in the year 2014 when I was exploring about CubeSats (and such Satellite Network via Raspberry Pi soon after I purchased my first Raspberry Pi2). Satellite networks are networks of networks. Unlike land based networks Satellite Networks have no such restrictions. And I was also partially inspired by Google Loon project. Eventually it struck me that why we need to limit ourselves with just one Interent (or WWW) ? Why cannot we have multiple individual (and so multi-dimensional) WWWs ?

So I was confused how to share this view globally. Initially shared with few of my high-profile contacts who are into Internet services, Network Infrastructure domain, etc. But eventually it turned out either they are not interested, or a case that they are unable to imagine the magnitude of change this can cause globally.

Hope you guys got some big picture. I am still in the process of writing this proposal. If you have any ideas or suggestions you can kindly put forward.

Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a new innovative way to provide optimal application performance by redefining branch office networking. Unlike traditional expensive private WAN connection technologies such as MPLS, etc., SD-WAN delivers increased network performance and cost reduction. SD-WAN solution decouple network software services from the underlying hardware via software abstraction.

As a research experiment I replaced my Intel Core i7 5820K desktop PC with my Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC as my everyday desktop system. This is an attempt to reduce my overall monthly power consumption. As well an attempt to do feasibility tests and research to know how far Mini PC will dominate the market in future and to study the real potential of Mini PCs.

When you build a WAN Optimization device with TOFFEE the entire packet processing (data optimization) takes place in software layer or in other words more precisely Operating System kernel space. However if you have any compression or encryption hardware accelerator hardware card the parts of the TOFFEE packet processing modules can be offloaded to hardware layer and thus improving its efficiency.

Raspberry Pi as a Networking Device ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Raspberry Pi is often used as a single board computer for applications such as IoT, hobby projects, DIY, education aid, research and prototyping device. But apart from these applications Raspberry Pi can be used for real-world applications such as in making a full-fledged networking devices. Raspberry Pi is a single board ARM based hardware which is why it is also classified as ARM based SoC. Since it is ARM based it is highly efficient, tiny form-factor and lower in power consumption with moderate computational power. This will allow it to work several hours on emergency battery backup power supply such as low-cost domestic UPS and or some renewable energy source, which is a prerequisite for a typical networking device.
