Your WiFi just got 700% better

With the dramatic increase in Wireless Networking, you may have noticed that not all WiFi is created equal.

For example, have you ever wondered why your home Internet connection is so much faster than the WiFi you connect to at the airport, Starbucks, or the train station?

While most of us understand that the more people connected to the same WiFi network the longer it takes for our browser to load, surprisingly few understand why. According to journalist and tech nerd Sebastian Anthony:

“The primary reason for this is that a WiFi access point, along with every device connected to it, operates on the same wireless channel…Each channel, depending on the wireless technology being used, has a maximum bandwidth (say, 100 megabits per second), with that bandwidth being distributed between all connected devices…If the channel becomes congested enough that the access point can no longer send out data, then the show’s over, basically.”

Luckily, engineers at NC University have invented a software, called WiFox (logo below), which they claim will help with the data congestion that leads to an annoyingly slow internet connection.

WiFox is a piece of software which uses an algorithm to detect the level of data congestion accumulating over a WiFi access point. When the congestion reaches a certain level, WiFox acts as a policeman directing traffic at a busy intersection might act: it eliminates congestion by allowing data to flow freely in one direction and then the other direction until the backlog has been cleared.

According to the NCSU researchers, their testbed resulted in a 700% increase in throughput (a jump from about 1Mbps to 7Mbps) and a 30-40% decrease in latency.

So far an exact date for the release of WiFox to the public has not been given, but we at SourceFed are looking forward to testing out the new software ourselves!

Question time, Nation:

What do you think about WiFox?
Will you purchase it once it’s released commercially?
