Increasing the Internet Speed using the Laws of Electromagnism

Project Description

In any discussion fast internet connectivity is a necessary requirement, for everyone who uses a computer. Thus, this idea evolved, which is a method of amplification of signal strength, which will result in a faster internet. This is done by twisting a new cable over the existing transmission cable. Now, how it works? The answer can be put in multi-dimensions relating to physics, electronics principles and so on. This explanation is done with the Physics point of view. We vary the famous law of physics and add some physics concepts to the cables conducting abilities. The laws that we use are the Gauss's law, the Ohm's law and the Kirchhoff's law. Initially, this idea was implemented over an existing simple Local Area Network(LAN) set-up (2- terminals, 1-network adapter and 1-ADSL modem). The idea was to twist a new cable over the existing cable that are of equal length and just to tape it for a firm grip. Thus, the standards are kept intact as there is no physical connection between the two cables. The challenge here is to reduce the cost and to offer the same hike in the bandwidth, some optimizations are done.

Project Details

  • Internet Speed increased by 39.2% in LAN.
  • Increase in internet speed across other nodes on the same network.
  • Cost effective and efficient method.
  • The project was awarded the Best Paper Award - Student at ICICA 2014, Coimbatore.
