[en] The speed of light is an essential topic in the teaching of physics at school and at university, either with respect to the type of experiment or of course with respect to its genuine inherent importance. In reality, the various available experiments are hardly ever performed in class for many reasons. Therefore, we offer this experiment as a remotely controlled laboratory (RCL). An RCL is a real experiment setup at location A which can be controlled via the Internet by a user at a distant location B. It allows several actions like in the hands-on experiment and delivers convincing results. Finally, we present experiences of the use of the RCL, describe the added value of this experiment as an RCL and give hints for implementing the RCL in teaching.

It is divided into 13 chapters, which deals with Information - oriented society : meaning, specialty and function of the society, Elements of information and communication, Data transmit technology, Information and communication system, optical communication, Data communication network, local area network, wide area network and communications network, TCP/IP, Internet : Service, PGP, multimedia internet service and electronic commerce, Technology of data protection like DRM, Mobile Communication, and home network of summary and the direction of network technology of next generation.
[en] Studying the topology of infrastructure communication networks (e.g., the Internet) has become a means to understand and develop complex systems. Therefore, investigating the evolution of Internet network topology might elucidate disciplines governing the dynamic process of complex systems. It may also contribute to a more intelligent communication network framework based on its autonomous behavior. In this paper, the Internet Autonomous Systems (ASes) topology from 1998 to 2013 was studied by deconstructing and analysing topological entities on three different scales (i.e., nodes, edges and 3 network components: single-edge component M1, binary component M2 and triangle component M3). The results indicate that: a) 95% of the Internet edges are internal edges (as opposed to external and boundary edges); b) the Internet network consists mainly of internal components, particularly M2 internal components; c) in most cases, a node initially connects with multiple nodes to form an M2 component to take part in the network; d) the Internet network evolves to lower entropy. Furthermore, we find that, as a complex system, the evolution of the Internet exhibits a behavioral series, which is similar to the biological phenomena concerned with the study on metabolism and replication. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study of the evolution of the Internet network through analysis of dynamic features of its nodes, edges and components, and therefore our study represents an innovative approach to the subject.

[en] Content delivery network (CDN) allows internet providers to locate their services, to map their coverage into networks without necessarily to own them. CDN is part of the current internet infrastructures, supporting multi server applications especially social media. Various works have been proposed to improve CDN performances. Since accesses on social media servers tend to be short but frequent, providing redundant to the transmitted packets to ensure lost packets not degrade the information integrity may improve service performances. This paper examines the implementation of rateless code in the CDN infrastructure. The NS-2 evaluations show that rateless code is able to reduce packet loss up to 50%. (paper)
[en] The last few years the electronic highway has become quite a topic. The central issue is where and when do we have to join in? The electronic highway offers both opportunities and threats to the energy sector. The energy distribution companies' attitude should be powered by a long-term vision on the future use of the electronic highway. And in the short run the first moves can be made without the need for very high investments. 1 fig., 2 ills
[en] A review of the state of the Internet in terms of traffic and services trends covering both the Research and Education and the Commercial Internet will first be given. The problematic behind the IPv4 to IPv6 migration will be explained shortly, a short review of the ongoing efforts to re-design the Internet in a clean-slate approach will then be made.
