Even if it was a problem (and it isn't), the answer is to just have the major backbones enable multicast.

/Or get Al Gore to unclog teh tubes

hmm what? Multicast is only really good for live content. Video on demand (youtube stuff etc) is better handled by unicast traffic. I know of alot of backbone providers that do multicast already... so yeah.. you be wrong.

TFA given that a minute of video requires 10 times the bandwidth as voice

So it's TiVo's fault?

"Those amusing YouTube video clips that Internet users send to friends gobble up large chunks of bandwidth and may cause the Net to crash, some elements of the telecom industry warn."

It's amusing they are saying that over years internet users will basically become one big DOS attack and boom, everything will fall to pieces. What, they won't notice increased usage over time and add resources to handle it?

More users = more $ = more money to spend on services to support these users. It works like this in any business.

Whole lotta bullshiat in the article with no real data to back it up their position.

The problem, Poll said, is that traffic volumes are growing faster than computing power, meaning that engineers can no longer count on newer, faster computers to keep ahead of their capacity demands.

This article is full of BS. The above quote doesn't even make any SENSE. The power of the end user's computer has NOTHING to do with the ability of the internet backbone to transport data.


icecelt: Are there any network engineers here - you know, people who work on the actual infrastructure, who can say that this is, indeed, bullshiat?

Well, I worked as Tier 1 internal tech support at SBC/AT&T for several years, and yes, I can confirm that this is Grade A bullshiat. That company has plenty of fiber running between it's offices, half of it goes unused. Furthermore, all that is needed to upgrade the bandwidth of the backbones are new end equipment (extra OC48 shelves and such), no new fiber needs to be run to upgrade the interoffice bandwidth available. The only problem is that AT&T is a chintzy company who will only spend as much money as it takes to make their stock look good (mostly because they were bought by SBC, who took their name because everyone hates SBC). They refuse to even keep sufficient spare circuit packs for the equipment they DO have. No revolutionary new solution is needed to fix the internet, AT&T just needs to ante up the money to add a swath of new OC48 or OC-192 shelves instead of the 3-decade old pieces of crap that are currently in the central offices, busily shoveling your pr0nz down the glass tubes.

Hi all,

Friendly neighborhood network engineer here. In my case I don't work for an ISP, I work for a science museum ... and let's just say our setup is exotic enough that probably know more than most.

(Put on labcoat and a graps a clipboard)

This article is bullshiat. For the reasons stated already, and because we haven't even begun to tap the true carrying capacity of fiber optic cable. While the limiting factors on network performance have traditionally been on the network switching side, there are shortcuts we can (and do) take for big ticket items like video.

And even cooler things like putting bulk downloads in the "Slow" lane while we allow interactive traffic to go through lightning fast.

Some of the stuff I work on is LIVE video across the web. That's a bit trickier because not only do you need to move a lot of data, it all has to arrive in time to be decoded into a stream.

We don't use the main intertube for that. That's what Internet2 is for.

That's awesome!! What sorta shelf is it?
AT&T pretty much buys Nortel and Alcatel (don't like Alcatel's TL1 command format, bleh), the DWDM cards are way cool.

It's scary stuff when those things fail though, an OC192 on protection is 1 idiotic mistake away from being a huge FCC-reportable service outage.

C'mon guys, stop with the quotes. You're going to fill up the internets and then all we'll have is spam and stupid anime clips set to happy hardcore.

Dear Mozilla,

I love the internets! Growing up, I didn't really have any friends aside from baseball cards and that kid my mom made me hang out with because no one liked him because he picked his nose and ate it. I learned to be happy being alone, but then grass started to grow around the ol' may pole, and my emotions went all drunken father on me. Suddenly, I wanted to have friends! My crude tales of masturbating in theaters were a little ahead of their time and therefore did a poor job in helping me gain friends. After a string of lonely weekend nights, I decided that perhaps I wasn't meant for this world. So, I turned to a virtual world: Internet Explorer. It was just the ticket! I found people in Athens, Georgia who engaged in acts similar to mine: genital mutilation, eyelid piercing, and crocheting!

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that Internet Explorer has opened up a whole new world for me in which to fit. But ever since September 11th We Will Always Remember, I have been told that Internet Explorer is not the way to go, that it is vulnerable to terrorists. See, the terrorists have a plot to take over the internets, and by using Internet Explorer, I am supporting terrorism. I think it was somewhere in the Patriot Games that Congress passed in Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 451 movie. I really don't want to stop using Internet Explorer: all of my friends are on there! So, I was wondering: does Firefox have all of the necrohemophiliacs, nymphrodites, and housewives whom I've formed close bonds with on Internet Explorer? I am very fat.

Lastly, I've heard that the internets are running out of space with all of the illegal downloading and cooking recipes and everyone driving SUVs and such. They say that by the year 2021, there will only be space on the internets for SPAM and pornography and New York City will be flooded. I was wondering what the Mozilla Corporation is doing to help avert what could perhaps be a possible catastrophe maybe. Since the internets are my world of choice, I don't know what I'd do if they disappeared (suicide).

Well, I thought I would give you guys a chance to convince me that Mozilla is the internets for me and that it will have the same kinds of people as Internet Explorer. Also, I'm currently unemployed and think I'd make a great addition to your staff. I'm always coming up with great ideas, like, I'm sick of having to click on so many things. I think there should be a toolbar with links to the sites I go to most. Well, let me know. I look forward to hearing from you. Until then, I remain,

Tintinambulantly yours,
James
