Internet: the INTER-connection of local NET-works

Dear friends,

from the final document of NetMundial we can see, that this organization 
has no interest to strongly support the self-organization of the people 
for their global communication systems. Rather, institutions are 
installed to continue the principles of monopolization and representation.

Now I want to submit my proposal for a real Internet in this discussion 

1) The local networks

The Internet is nothing more then the connection of local, independent 
networks. They have at least one server, which is connected to the local 
router and this router connects to the adjacent networks.

These local networks have a maximum of sovereignity and independenence, 
because they maintain all the necessary resources and functions locally. 
These local networks are organized by the local people themselves.

2) The inter-connection of local net-works

The Internet rests on three levels.

a) connection of the adjacent local networks
b) the regional network of regional centers
c) the global network of regional centers

The technology is based primarily on directed microwave radio links. The 
components are manufactured locally or regionally.

All types of data are transported. Text, graphics and speech. This 
eliminates all separate instances for the data transport.

The transport capacities are symmetric in principle. Thus, each client 
can themselves act as a server.

3) The IP address

The IP address is derived from the geographical position in the world 
coordinate system. We use 64-bit for global and 64-bit for local 
address. Because the world coordinate system WK84 is distributed 
asymmetrically, we should strive for a symmetrical system of 
coordinates. Maybe it already exists.

The routing (geo-routing) is based on the destination address of the 
packet relative to the position of the router. From the distance and the 
angle wc can easy make the decisions.

This eliminates all institutions, which deal with the management of 
number spaces and routing. There is no Internet governance more. It is 
not necessary.


This concept rests on the responsibility to all people on our planet. 
Only if they can operate at a most independently locally or regionally 
level, our global communication system can arise. People are important 
and not the institutions.

It also follows, that we have to manufacture the hardware components 
local and regional self. Any form of incapacitation of people by private 
or public institutions is terminated. But this is only possible if we 
determine the technology itself and organize itself. We do this 
according to the principle: Think globally, act locally.

many greetings in solidarity, willi uebelherr
