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

Preface:
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

ISPs:
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

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 [CDN]

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.
    06 Multi-dimensional Multi-universe Internet Technology

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.

Conclusion:
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.

A study on Deep Space Networks (DSN) ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
When you are dealing Deep Space Networks (DSN) one among the most challenging parts is the Interplanetary distances and communicating data across such vast distances. This is where we are not dealing with common Internet type traffic such as HTTP/FTP/VoIP/etc but it is completely different when it comes to DSN so far. So optimizing data in DSN becomes mandatory. For example if you think one of the Mars Rovers, they have used LZO lossless compression.

Building my own CDN - Google PageSpeed Insights - Update: 22-Jul-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Ever since after I launched my new The TOFFEE Project website on 1-May'2016, I can see there is a steep increase in traffic. Soon after the launch when I monitored its Alexa rankings it was reporting about 12 Million or so. But once it is getting more and more traffic the Alexa rankings shot up and now currently it shows around 2 Million (as on 22-July-2016). Alexa is an excellent tool to monitor your overall website global ranking and indirectly its performance. Unlike Google Analytics which is bound one or other way into Google's SEO. Alexa gives you a second opinion about your website's growth.

Introducing TrueBench - a high resolution CPU benchmarking system ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TrueBench is an unique open-source benchmarking system in which the core system performance and efficiency parameters are measured at extreme high resolution in the order of several million/billion µ-seconds for a given specific task. TrueBench is a part of The TOFFEE Project research. With TrueBench Raspberry Pi 3, Raspberry Pi 2B, Raspberry Pi 2 and other embedded SoC devices are benchmarked and you can do a comparative analysis with standard mainstream x86 devices.

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment in Large Infrastructure and or ISP Networks ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Large Infrastructure or ISP setup: In case if you are an ISP and interested in deploying a large customer WAN Optimized network or an add-on enhanced (WAN Optimized) network for select few customers, then you can deploy something as shown below. Although this case is not meant for hobby/DIY users. This is a feasible solution for high-end professional application and the same can be deployed.

TOFFEE-DataCenter - First Live Demo and software development - Update: 26-Aug-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I have done a test setup so that I can able to connect my Android Samsung Tab via TOFFEE DataCenter. Below is my complete test topology of my setup. For demo (and research/development) context I configured TOFFEE DataCenter in engineering debug mode. So I do not need two devices for this purpose.
