AO5 Research and explore possible future developments of the Internet
Global Environment for Networking Investigations (GENI) initiative
Geni is a research programme, which is run by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which was a significant development in the early years of the internet. Its aim was to resolve the current problem in distributed networking, of which the internet is an integral element. They are building their own version of the internet on which to test and experiment so that they can try to revolutionary ideas of which have not been considered or tested previously. Experiments of this size and complexity require the backing of a large research organisation such as the NSF to make them possible.
The future of the internet, as they say will be a flat pervasive network, in which users will generate and share content vigorously on an first-time scale by exploiting the high skills of their mobile devices. In addition, social users will be a main point of generation and consumption patterns. Mobiles device will form impulsive networks. Enabling users to generate content at any time.
There is a range of networks, such as bit torrent, which works with different types of distributions. Pervasive networking has just emerged as a new area of communication networks system. The objective of this is to capture recent development and publish new research activities.
Mobile, wireless and sensor network access
A mobile wireless sensor network work with mobile sink.
The positive side of a mobile with a wireless senor network is that they are better energy efficient, meaning last long then other phones, also they have impressive coverage and target tracking.Each sensor network has several parts: a radio transceiver with an internal & external antenna, also a microcontroller, an electronic circuit for the sensors and an energy source, usually a battery form of energy collecting. The price of sensor nodes is flexible; they can range from hundreds to pennies of depending on the currency, but also on the difficulty of the sensor nodes.
The security is always going to be at the top of the list for the internet.It was firstly, created as Arpanet; no one had imagined that it would be offered to such a huge number of people to use. Therefore, security features are tracked, which is a part of the system, which may may lead to improvement in certain ares. In real time, corporate are alert about the internet dangers and the updated need of the security for the business.
Non-computer sources e.g. GPS/RFID tracking
The internet is beginning to be used for system, which are not computer-based but provide foundation for them to function. Global positioning system (GPS) can locate a specific point in the world (depending on the coverage of the particle system). This has been used in a variety of system, from automotive navigation system and mobile phones to military systems.
