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

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 [CDN]
  • 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.

First TOFFEE Code Release ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I started working on the new TOFFEE project (which is the fork of my earlier TrafficSqueezer open-source project) starting from 1st January 2016 onwards. Ever since I was busy in research and altering certain old features so that it is more minimal than TrafficSqueezer, a more focused agenda, deliver refined code and a broader vision. I have lined up more things to follow in the upcoming months. I want to focus about all aspects of WAN communication technologies not just on core WAN Optimization research and technology.

Building my own CDN - choosing a web-hosting to deploy my CDN - Update: 28-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
The TOFFEE Project website is hosted on Inmotion Hosting. And so I am looking for alternate hosting provider to build my first CDN node. My plan is to make multiple sub-domains of my website such as cdn1.the-toffee-project.org, cdn2.the-toffee-project.org and point each of this corresponding subdomain(s) to various alternative web hosting servers geographically spread across the world. Sometimes choosing the same vendor for multiple CDN nodes may result multiple servers existing in the data-center. And this becomes an issue if there is some catastrophic network disaster.

Recording Lab Monthly power-consumption readings for Research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is my home lab monthly power-consumption readings for research. This will help to measure and monitor the overall power usage and assess the power requirements. This will help me in future purchases such as UPS, battery upgrades and so on. And as well remove replace old obsolete hardware with new less power-consuming devices.

CDN Hosting ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
It is quite interesting that there are few web hosting firms are offering direct CDN based hosting services. Since it is a direct CDN based hosting, it is cheap, extremely easy or transparent CDN service. It is transparent, since each time you publish your content in the hosting web-server (origin server), it is immediately is in sync automatically in the user-serving CDN caching machines. Since the hosting vendor and the CDN vendor are all the same, it is also easy to use their services. There is no incompatibility issues, interoperability issues, and better integrated analytics, are all the benefits of CDN Hosting services.

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-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 20-Oct-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I was doing some specific tests in my TOFFEE and TOFFEE-DataCenter (WAN optimization) scenarios such as variable upload and download speeds. And I was also doing some experiments with speedtest.net and I did some of these tests with TOFFEE-Mocha. I realized there is a case that I can introduce asymmetric constant delays so that you can get different download speed and a different upload speed. And in some cases much faster download speeds and relatively slower upload speeds.

TOFFEE Fudge is a simple intuitive Network Packet Generator which can be used to create custom test synthetic Network Packets and can be used in various applications such as networking research, network infrastructure troubleshooting, ethical hacking, as a network software development tool and so on.

TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization software development - Update: 13-Aug-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Earlier the TOFFEE is intended to work on IoT devices, Satellite Networks, branch office/SOHO deployments. In most cases the users may deploy just one or couple of TOFFEE devices per site. But in the case of TOFFEE-DataCenter, users can scale-up deploying the same in multiple servers in a sort of distributed cluster computing scenario. Besides the core TOFFEE-DataCenter components (such as packet processing engine/framework), I need to do lot of changes in its Graphical User Interface (GUI) too to address these new requirements.
