The United States to use 4G in Waters of the World

Internet Techonology has had a great impact in the history of mankind. Picture shows a ship sailing in water

United States. March 6. UITV. The history of the Internet begins with the development of electronic computers in the 1950s. The concept of data communication – transmitting data between two different places through an electromagnetic medium such as radio or an electric wire – predates the introduction of the first computers.

As a globally distributed network of voluntarily interconnected autonomous networks, the Internet operates without a central governing body. It has no centralized governance for either technology or policies, and each constituent network chooses what technologies and protocols it will deploy from the voluntary technical standards that are developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

The IETF is a loosely self-organized group of international volunteers who contribute to the engineering and evolution of Internet technologies


Connecting the world using Technology


Due to its prominence and immediacy as an effective means of mass communication, the Internet has also become more politicized as it has grown. Examples include political activities along with the following:

  • The spreading of ideas and opinions;
  • Recruitment of followers, and "coming together" of members of the public, for ideas, products, and causes;
  • Providing and widely distributing and sharing information that might be deemed sensitive or relates to whistleblowing (and efforts by specific countries to prevent this by censorship);
  • Criminal activity and terrorism (and resulting law enforcement use, together with its facilitation by mass surveillance).

Bandwidth on navy ships are scarce, expensive commodity. But by the end of the year, for the first time, the Navy will put a 4G LTE wireless network aboard some of its ships.

The idea is to allow sailors and Marines with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit to take part in what the Navy calls the network’s first at-sea “planning vignette”.

Abbots says that the sea trial will be a test case for the first-ever Navy wireless network. “There are several agencies interested in the evaluation of the system in a Maritime environment,” he tells Danger Room.
