TCP/IP and the open Internet

October 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Being interested in technology and having played with voice over IP before, i came across the Disruptive Telephony blog. The article “Slides: How The Hidden Secret of TCP/IP Affects Real-time Communications” references the presentation “The hidden secret of TCP/IP and the internet” which raises an important point: TCP/IP and the internet enable communication from anywhere to anywhere. But the reality is that communication is divided in islands, each controlled by a different company. Communication between the islands is almost impossible. Maybe it is time to demand more interoperable solutions. The presentation focuses on telephony, but the same is true for other aspects like social networking.
