Web Access for Remote Areas on Earth and Beyond

Communications Information for Terrestrial and Planetary Use

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - April 8, 2014 - PRLog -- There are many places in remote and rural areas that do not have Internet access. A means to provide access to these locations is necessary. Originally used for network access in outer space, Disruption Tolerant Network (DTN) technology is used on networks that have frequent interruptions or long delays. DTN Setup introduced on their website (dtnsetup.com), information about how to setup a DTN.

Communication to a spacecraft on another planet will take many minutes to reach the destination. Therefore traditional network protocols are not feasible. DTNs are being used by various space agencies for communicating with satellites and space stations. As a planet rotates, ground stations will lose communications with spacecrafts or satellites on other planets. A satellite with DTN can store the data being transferred until it can forwardthe data when a signal is able to be obtained.

DTN technology has terrestrial useson Earth. Major Internet companies use a DTN to bring Internet access to remote areas that have no means of traditional Internet access. Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, and in some cases balloons with communications equipment, can provide Internet access to areas previously inaccessible to the Internet.

DTN Setup (dtnsetup.com) has training material to explain the benefits and uses of a DTN. Case studies are shown toprovide current uses of DTN applications. Software for Mac, Windows and Linux machines is available to configure a DTN.
