Within the framework of the research project, scientists from the Department of etit, together with the Department of Computer Science, are identifying a solution in which precisely this growing dynamism again represents an advantage for the future Internet. The main idea is to use the different paths in such a way that they can develop their full potential. By coordinating mechanisms, for example, unnecessary obstacles in the form of overloaded networks can be removed.
The “how” also plays an important role. This is where a term from computer science comes into play, namely transition. Anyone who doesn't happen to study computer science will probably raise a questioning eyebrow here. But then the term is not so completely unknown, because it also plays a role in other areas, such as politics or medicine. Which one that is, is revealed by the translation “transfer”.
At this point, let us think again of the example of languages: The enormous diversity of the most varied expressions initially represents a hurdle. But what if one could always transfer exactly the meaning into a word from all the languages that exist, which perfectly reflects the meaning sought?
This is exactly what the researchers want to do with the different communication mechanisms on the net. By adapting them to the respective context, they want to ensure a meaningful transfer of different communication mechanisms so that they work together more smoothly and therefore lead to a qualitatively higher experience.
How might this then show up in everyday life? No more overloaded networks, faster services, for example in the sense of data transfers, and that everywhere and at any time: So we all benefit from it!
