European Commission Backs Latency Elimination Research

14th February 2013

The European Commission recently put forward €3.57 million towards a new research project with aims at reducing connection latency across the internet.

The Reducing Internet Transport Latency (Rite) project is being led by Norway's Simula Research Labs, with help from Alcatel-Lucent, BT and the University of Aberdeen, and it's hoped that the research could lead to faster web operations without the need for internet users to invest in state-of-the-art technology.

Internet latency is the time it takes for small messages to pass between two linked computers and a reduction in this time would allow computers and servers on the internet to communicate more effectively. The research could also lead to improvements in smaller networks, with spin off technologies helping improve business networks.
