EU, Japan team up for better Internet

MANILA, Philippines - In today's data-driven world, the ability to send and receive data quickly and effectively is just as important as simply having access to important information. This big data revolution is prompting the call for better networks.

The European Commission and Japan responded to this by announcing 6 projects they have funded to attend to the explosion of data and the human need for better connectivity. The projects are intended to find ways to improve the Internet architecture and enhance a network's efficiency in carrying data.

The 6 projects, which will receive a total of 18 million euros (approximately P1 billion) in funding, are:

With data volumes doubling between 2012 and 2013 and expectations for people's data growing 12-fold by 2018, finding better ways of sending more data does show itself to be an important step for the future. - Rappler.com
