New technology developed by researchers at Aalborg University, MIT and Caltech may increase Internet data speeds by up to 10 times, and play a role in future 5G mobile networks deployment. The technology proposes smarter and more adaptable network nodes that could replace the way Internet works today – relying on the 40-year old TCP/IP protocol can be inefficient and less secure. Researchers have come up with network coding, which is a way to make each node of a network smart enough to reroute and re-encode data packets as needed. By comparison, current nodes in TCP/IP networks only forward data packets as they are received to the next node, in the order they were received. Smarter nodes could also be more secure,
