Congestion on the Internet : A 10 page paper discussing
some of the ways it could be possible to reduce the increasing
problem of Internet congestion. The paper discusses ISDN,
ADSL, cable modem connection and DirecPC, but high-speed
connections do little to ease congestion aside from perhaps
allowing the user to spend less time to accomplish what he
needs to do. Infrastructure needs to be shifted away from
dependence on the circuit-switched voice system that existed
long before most could conceive of computers. To accomplish
that shift, it would be beneficial to look at IP telephony more as
a method of data transmission rather than simply a low-cost
alternative to conventional telephone service. In the meantime,
the combination of the cable modem and the virtual private
network appears to be a workable way of easing Internet
congestion using available technology that could be
implemented right away. The Internet is doubling every nine
months, and there is little space for esoteric theorization without
first ensuring that progress is made in practical areas.
