Comments on news posted 2004-09-03 09:22:35: The next generation Internet2 network has once again broken a data transmission speed record, according to PhysOrg. Scientists transferred 859 gigabytes of data in less than 17 minutes at a rate of 6. ..

Internet2 has been JUICEBOOSTED!

Turns out they were just using a pool of 30 OLD(as opposed to new) 9600 Baud Hayes modems held together with bubblegum & kite string. This connection did feature Juiceboosted's 23 herbs & patents!

Re: too bad we will never see those speeds .... :(

It will probably go up due to inflation like gas prices have. But the true inflation adjusted price will go down just like gas prices have. But we will still be bitching about broadband prices just like we have been doing with gas prices.

Re: Internet2 has been JUICEBOOSTED!

The funny part is that we couldn't transfer that to our computers at much faster than 50mb persecond unless you have raid 0 striping.

Poor internet2 users

These scientists are the bandwidth hogs of the future. Can you imagine you're doing your thesis using internet2 and these guys decide to shove a big load of 859 GB through the pipe at you.

Gates NEVER said this.

Your statement is in caps and it sounds very interesting indeed because it goes against mainstream lore. Can you actually prove this?

Please note that I'm not asking Jon Geb See Profile: to prove his.

Re: Poor internet2 users

Yeh, but the bandwidth hogs only used it for 17 minutes, haha.
Also, the chances of this data being moved to a physical storage device like a hard drive is slim, I would assume some sort of fast solid state device. On the other hand, who is to say the data was even saved after being transferred? Toss it in memory and delete it immediately... it was transferred!

6Gbps

Reality check, I get 1.536mbps/384kbps. And when I heard of DSL Extreme's 6mbps/608kbps I thought that was excellent. This won't reach my rural home until cars can fly.

Maybe I missed something in both of those links. But both links seem to support the fact that the comment was made. I could care less either way. But I just didn't see anything that clearly stated the comment was not made.

File size

I wondered what kind of a file they transferred that was so big, so just to make the picture clearer I came up with some numbers. The amount of data they transferred was +/- equal to:
-343,600 MP3s
-214 DVD movies
-1321.5 DiVX single CDR movies
-11,453,333 pr0n pictures at an avg. size of 75kb

Cool...

Re: *YAWN*

why would i need 6.63 Gigabits per Second
my 4.8mbps is just as good pages would load @ the same time as the 6.63Gbps. it would bacuse the Server dose not have the same speed as the 6.63Gbps speed so it would take the server 6.63 gbps too for it to load faster

Re: Intresting!!

SPECIFICALLY because the internet '1' was so open and flooded.

i2 will never be open to the general public. It was meant to only hold schools / research labs.

where did the internet we have now come from remember the 70s text only that was for universitys an defense now internet expanded to grghics as well ?how old are u to say it will never be open to general public? wheres the progress if its not open to public ?

Never = 30 years

An IEEE Spectrum article within last couple months concludes that bandwidth in wired, local wireless and wide-area wireless communications has followed Moore's Law, just like the number of transistors on a chip.

And everybody projects the trends to continue for decades, even without the possibility "paradigm-shifting" technologies.

So, whatever you can afford today, expect to get 2x more in 3 years, 10x more in 10 years, etc.

Personally, I'm gaga for gigabits.

I want infinite real-time HDTV selection. Actually, this only needs a high-bandwidth pipe and fast switch, and I can get by with 25 Mbps or so. So, this will be practical next decade.

I want Library of Congress-researched tutorials prepared in real time to explain the answers to my dumbest questions. Well, a really fast database engine at the central server could presumably create the content and forward it as an HDTV stream for the same measly 25 Mbps, but for a large number of users, it's probably necessary to ship the raw data and let the distributed 300 GHz computers do the data crunching about 20 years from now.

And I want enough bandwidth for the virtual reality implants that will be waiting for me in the nursing home.

On second thought with 6 Gbps coming in only 30 years (based on 6 Mbps today), I hope I'm not ready for managed care by then!

Otoh, imagine all the privacy that can be invaded with all the internet cam and RFID traffic that will be available.

The NSA supercomputer needs to be able to keep up with the bigger bandwidth we are getting. The keyword sniffer is already pretty much useless for doing much of anything anymore.

Re: *YAWN*

They did transfer 10GB/s but the overhead of IP does not allow one to utilized the full 10GB/s for user data. The limitations are the end-machines adapters and not Internet2 backbone.

Next, it does effect you indirectly since the traffic utilitzed by the Internet2 community is not being use on the regular Internet. So all those students and professors on-campus are transferring data without effecting our bandwidth depending on the particular institution's policy for their Internet2 traffic. I see the cable traffic pattern change in my area when the off-campus students arrive for school.

Re: This is Depressing

The statement was made, but as for it being attributed to gates and the PCs memory, I dont believe thats the case:

This article, from Wired.com, has good info from gates himself (according to Wired)
