Initial  Release April 1, 2001; Updated April 1, 2004

A revolutionary new technology innovation will redefine core networking within the next 12 months. The key component to this new technology is the use of gravitons - those tiny little particles of gravity. Since gravitons have zero rest mass, they are similar to both photons and tachyons. However, the fact that they travel at the speed of light makes them simpler to study and implement than tachyons. Consequently, there are more immediate applications than for Tachyon Transmission Mode. For more background information on both gravitons and TTM, please see the links on the Graviton home page.

The telecommunications potential for graviton networking is immense. It is well known that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. However, in limiting implementations to traditional networking technology, today's telecommunications providers end up taking the longest path when building global networks. Consequently, the global economy is supported by paths that go around, rather than through, the earth. This adds at least 50% to the transmission path distance in many cases.

Graviton-based networking uses a technique called chordal transmission, whereby the absolute shortest path is established using a chord. (In three-dimensional geometry, a chord is a line segment that connects two points through, rather than around, a sphere.) Using chordal networking technology, the shortest path transmission is established between any two points on earth by simply transmitting gravitons, also manifested as gravitational waves, between the two points.

This technology is rather similar to DWDM (dense wavelength division multiplexing). In this case, though, the wavelengths are extremely short since they are based on the mass of the gravitons, which are 10^42 times lighter than photons. The relationship to DWDM also is strong in the area of density. Graviton-based networking is, in fact, very dense as it goes through the core of the earth. Consequently, initial implementations are known as DGCN (Dense Gravitational Core Networking).

The metallic nature of the core makes DGCN even more efficient. There is no need for fiber optics, microwaves, or other transmission systems. Just drop something heavy and the gravitational waves take care of the rest.

The proximity to the core of the earth also introduces relativistic advantages to DGCN. For instance, the propagation of light in fiber optics is really rather slow. Since the index of refraction is relative to the speed of light in the material, and the index of refraction for most types of glass is roughly 1.5, the speed of transmission in fiber optics is only about 66% of the speed of light. With DGCN, the gravitons start off at the speed of light. But they are then accelerated by the relativistic effects of passing near the extremely dense core of the earth, creating a gravitational slingshot effect.

In fact, this gravitational slingshot effect, combined with the topology of population centers, means that most transmissions do not pass through the central core. Instead, they stay primarily within the area between the crust and the core, commonly known a Middle Earth. Consequently, the first commercially planned products are for Graviton-Accelerated Gigabit through Middle Earth networks - or GAG-ME nets.

But how are graviton-oriented messages detected? It turns out to be rather simple - a lot like a seismograph detects earthquakes halfway around the world. A laser is aimed at a mirror embedded in bedrock. Very minor gravitational changes are detected by the deflections of the mirror. This technique is called Ultradense Gravitational Laser Indication (UGLI) technology.

The next generation of UGLI technology will increase speeds to many times the current levels, to terabit levels and above. In this implementation, designers plan to detect the gravitational waves directly. In this implementation, known as Ultradense Gravitational Laser Indication with Enhanced Seismic Terabits - or the UGLIEST technology - commercial applications will soon eclipse all known transmission systems.
