Computer Network Providing Redundant Data Traffic Control Features And Related Methods

UCF Office of Research & Commercialization, FL, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The invention is a robust network data access environment that may be used to provide desired data traffic management, even when there are sudden instances of unusually high demand for data. The approach enables conserving network resources and yet distribute content to different users at different times or “on demand”.

Primary Application Area: IT, Cyber-Security, Software

Technology Development Status: Concept

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: A way for smart network overlay, in which duplicate traffic may be reduced or eliminated and efficient network communication between client and video sources established. Currently, 10% of the most popular videos account for 90% of total views on YouTube, indicating that redundant data are repeatedly transmitted over the internet.
