Researchers at the Spanish telecommunications company Telefonica currently developing quite interesting technology increase the speed of the wireless connection called BeWifi. It is based on the concept of a single network, which includes several of nearby Wi-Fi routers. Due to the dynamic use of unused resources is possible to increase the connection speed users who at this time using the Internet.
Resource ArsTechnica notes that Telefonica have begun to implement this idea without making changes to the existing infrastructure more in 2008.
“First, we have investigated the possibility of what it can provide a peer in this area,” – said in an interview, Pablo Rodriguez, Head of Product Innovation and Research company Telefonica. – “Possibilities of your broadband Internet connection is not always used at 100%. If you combine multiple broadband internet connections and the mind to approach to the allocation of unused resources, you can get a whole new experience of interaction. “
Telefonica company managed to implement this idea in practice due to the firmware for routers own design. Now the software is installed is made by experts of the company, but the manufacturer promises that the next version will be much easier and everything users need to install it – is Internet access.
According to Mr. Rodriguez, specialized software allows you to create a network that combines the capabilities of all the routers, thereby increasing throughput single network to which access is provided to all participants.
“From a technical point of view it is quite a complicated task, as it is necessary to develop a software which is able to force the router to communicate with other routers, located nearby,” – said Pablo Rodriguez.
He also added that the only bottleneck technology at the moment is the maximum capacity of the standard Wi-Fi.
At the moment, the technology is moving BeWifi the vast developing countries. Telefonica company says 200 million homes in 14 countries in South America, where technology BeWifi really can have a very large effect.
