RESEARCH 》 Optimization of network data (WAN Optimization) at various levels

WAN Network data can be optimized at various levels depending upon the network applications, protocols, topology and use-cases. So the amount of data you can optimize will depend on the strategy you choose to optimize.

Network Packet level optimization: You can optimize your network data down to individual packets. This may be useful to optimize discrete network data such as VoIP and streaming networking applications. So depending on your network you can do frame level optimization in case if it is a Layer-2 switched network something like MPLS/VPLS scenarios. And in case it is a IP based routed networks you can do IP packet level optimization. So that the IP-header is intact where-as its other protocol headers and the payload is optimized. Hence packet level optimization suits for discrete network data and corresponding network applications.

Session level optimization: Session level (or session based) optimization is suited for complete/full sessions bound by a network connection. For example TCP-connection. A remote MySQL or Oracle database access involves a TCP-connection (or a session). So in this case we are not talking about discrete packet level access (although a session will always comprise multiple packet transfers to and fro) and we are not talking about individual file-level access, instead it is a session-level bulk data transfers. In this case we can employ different network optimization strategy so that the entire session can be optimized.

File level optimization: Last but not least a file-level optimization involves a typical file-download/file-upload scenario such as HTTP, FTP and so on. In this case in general even before sending across the wire we can do lossy (and lossless) compression of these files depending on its contents. But when it is being transferred across the network we can employ a network optimization strategy where an entire file transfer is optimized. We can also implement both above discussed techniques such as network packet-level and session-level to optimize file-level network data transfer. Some of the examples which comes in this category are CDN networks, HTTP Cache Proxy (such as Squid-Cache) and so on.

Case study :: Dolby Servers in movie theaters: Movie theaters these days get digitized extremely high-quality movie files from film producers/distributor channels. Since these files are so huge they are transferred via high-speed wire (fibre-optic) networks. But in case if the movie theaters lack high-speed network connectivity then they ship these movie copies on a regular computer hard-drive. This is a good case study and use-case where file-level network data optimization can be deployed.
Here are some interesting videos on Digital Cinema movie servers and projection technology:

In case if you are having a company and if you are looking for ways to optimize your network, performance tune-up and or building network optimization product(s) (which may or may not include porting/integrating TOFFEE on to your product), in that case I can offer my technical consultation services. If you are interested you can contact me for the same.

Communication data network standards and data transfer speeds :: Chart ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is a complete chart comprising popular communication data network standards and their respective transfer rates. I hope this reference chart will help network engineers and network software developers while performing networking tests and experiments, building WAN/network products, building WAN simulated networks of a specific standard and so on. This may also helps us to track technological advancements of communication data networks.

Detect and Monitor Failing Harddrive in Linux - My Seagate 500GB HDD Died ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
My 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM hard-drive suddenly started making mild clicking noise. I found this happening since morning. I was suspicious that something wrong in this drive and when I opened the Linux Disks app, I can find the cause of this issue. The disk is increasingly getting read errors. Besides I can see various other parameters such as Power-On Hours, Temperature, Head flying hours, etc.

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 1-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I got a feature request from Jonathan Withers. Jonathan is from a company called MultiWave Australia. He said he is able to get the TOFFEE-Mocha Raspberry Pi setup up and with that he is able to emulate geostationary satellite link. But he requested me is there a way to extend the constant packet delay from 40mS to 500mS. So as a part of his request I supported the same in the current ongoing development version of TOFFEE-Mocha.
