Personal P2P Mesh Network: Share Mobile Access From Your Smartphone To Any Computer

(Reuters) - "Travelling and looking for Internet access?


A new smartphone app allows users to share mobile Web access for free with other people nearby who have the same app.

 

Called Open Garden, the app forms a mesh network that enables each person connected to it to relay it to other users.

 

"Every smartphone is a computer and a router, so we thought it was the right time to interconnect all of these devices together to make general access more ubiquitous," said Micha Benoliel, co-founder and CEO of the San Francisco-based company Open Garden."

From Lifehacker: "Open Garden is both a Wi-Fi tethering app and a mesh network. Install it on your Android phone and you can use your mobile data wirelessly on your Windows or Mac laptop, as well as Android tablets.

 

Not only that—you can piggyback on others' mobile connections.

 

Once you've installed the app on your phone and the client on your computer, Open Garden will run in the background managing the connection over Bluetooth.

 

The Android app shows you all the devices connected in Open Garden, as well as the data being transferred.

 

Open Garden supposedly sniffs around for other devices using Open Garden and will manage the best way for yours to get online."

P2P Live Video Streaming Is Coming: BitTorrent Live

P2P Live Video Streaming Is Coming: BitTorrent Live | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Robin Good: P2P video live streaming is now a reality albeit still in the Beta testing phase. BitTorrent has now a live web site where you can download the P2P video streaming software for either PC, Mac or Linux computers. 

 

Once installed you can test the effectiveness of P2P live video streaming technology by checking out the test streams or the live sessions every Friday night (8pm PST).

 

"Conventional video streaming—through, say, YouTube or Netflix—eats up network resources because each user is pulling in their own individual feed.

 

The live peer-to-peer (P2P) streaming protocol created by BitTorrent founder and chief scientist Bram Cohen, instead works much like BitTorrent itself does.

 

Everybody that requests a certain video stream shares the feed between themselves, rather than just leeching the content.

 

This reportedly reduces lag drastically, network load and increases video quality for those watching.

 

And, just like when torrenting, the more people that sign on to a stream, the better it looks for everybody."
