Introducing the Virtual Quality Network

Virtual Quality Networks (VQNs) are a new category of network infrastructure. Just like how VPNs isolate sensitive traffic based on security needs, VQNs isolate important traffic based on quality needs. In this tech talk we explore what a VQN is, how they work, and how they can help you.

VUC webinar recording

This webinar recording explores the transition from broadband Internet access to cloud application access, and how VQN services from Just Right Networks Ltd enable assured quality for voice and video.

Stop drinking the 5G bathwater

The telecoms industry is fatally caught between reinventing circuits with 5G, and an envy of vertical application businesses. Survival is not mandatory.

More network quality measurements with ∆Q metrics

I am having fun running around taking measurements of broadband access using high-fidelity ∆Q metrics. Here are a few readings I have recently taken.

The great inevitable: from broadband Internet to cloud application access

Some inevitable changes are hard to see in prospect, yet are ‘obvious’ in retrospect. The next communications revolution is ‘made for cloud’ access.

The madness of broadband speed tests

The broadband industry has falsely sold its customers on “speed”, so unsurprisingly “speed tests” have become an insane and destructive benchmark.

Software has already eaten telecoms (it just has indigestion)

The unconscious and near-universal belief is that packet networks are a telecoms service, and one that constructs an ‘additive’ resource called ‘bandwidth’. This is demonstrably technically false. They deliver distributed computing services, as they calculate how to divide up an underlying telecoms transmission resource.

Examples of high-fidelity network measures using ∆Q metrics

∆Q is the mathematical language in which supply and demand for broadband performance can be expressed. Here are examples of high-fidelity ∆Q measures.

The one reason net neutrality can’t be implemented

Whilst people argue over the virtues of net neutrality as a regulatory policy, computer science tells us regulatory implementation is a fool’s errand.
