A Way to Improve Speed of Communications

by allyoop1234 / June 19, 2017 2:31 PM PDT

I think I've found how to increase communications substantially.

Might not work, but it should do. The algorithm being used to transfer internet data can be enhanced to improve the speed of data transfer substantially. Currently there is one
instruction packet in front of the data. When the rate at which the data is being transferred is so high that the instruction packet is lost, the algorithm compensates by dipping down to 50%
and resending the data that was lost.

If, instead of using one instruction packet in front, we use a number of instruction packets, perhaps 7. When one packet drops, just drop down a small percentage and keep going and when a second one drops do the same thing. The comms will be infinitely faster because you send the data at the maximum speed the line will allow you until the final packet (the 7th one) is dropped, then re-compensate as per normal. Then, perhaps in time, add more packets.

Furthermore, all algorithms appear to pretty much work the same way. That means everything from satellite, to broadband, to wireless, to bluetooth, etc.

Surely, if this works it's priceless?

Anyone, have any thoughts on it?

Anyone have any advice on where to go with this?

The current IP (internet Protocol) does some of what you wrote but let's go with what would be your next step.

-> This would be a fine thesis for your final year. That way you flesh it out and maybe build a demo.

Thanks for the response RT. This is more of a concept rather than a project. From looking at the various protocols and based on what I heard in the past on how the algorithm compensates I'm thinking this might be something to improve the speed of comms in general because they all appear to use the same approach.

I was hoping to be able to get intouch with someone who may be able to look into this rather than myself needing to go back to school, lol.

Would you have any suggestions on this front?

What you wrote is not uncommon as folk begin to learn IP (internet protocol.) To break into the light so to say you have to write the paper, build the demo and then maybe folk will listen.

That out of the way, I use FTP when I want max speed. That or I zip the file prior to sending because it's faster to zip (compress) and send than to just send.

Thanks, i'll put a pin in it then and look at it again down the line.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
