What is a "Datasphere" ?
Thank you for asking!
A 'DATASPHERE' - is " an internet in a bottle. "
You pickup the SSID (like you do at any starbucks cafe hotspot.)
Here, the SSID is " datasphere ".
(Access Point) SSID: " contact ".
Your wireless capable device grabs the SSID and is issued an IP.
Then type: ' http://google.com ' in your chrome browser and surf away!
Note: Only wireless capable devices can use this datasphere.
It is wirelessly powered
by our google backbone &
Every request made (that is - when you type ' http://google.com/ '
in your browser and hit the 'enter key') is wirelessly transmitted
and redirected to your destination! Our androids do this.)
' Speed and Domain Name Resolution. '
This Datasphere boasts of speeds up to 15 MB / second - FTP.
Below is sample of DATA Transfer Speeds (DTS) on this DATASPHERE.
50 MB / second video transmission.
"Instant POP! Technology" ( this is 'hush hush',
but pages on this Datasphere 'pop!' onto your screen.)
We have resolved domains from .com to .co.uk to .tv!
( In Web & email, etc. )
Server - stress / load / user behavior / Testing.
We sent about 12 million hits to an android
cellphone in one week and experienced about 99.9 % uptime.
We are uploading ( DATA-DUMPING ) / beta-testing about 10 GB of DATA / day.
( that's about 3 months ' average websurfer surftime ' - surfing @ ~ 2 hours per day. )
Please excuse the mess, but we are trying to 'mimic The Internet' as closely as possible.
We won't say anymore, but this is no longer "High-Tech', but ' Ueber-Tech '.
