Description of InfBASE-Q
InfBASE-Q is a theoretical link-layer addition to Ethernet for transmission of signals across a link between two ansible connections. Because there is no transmission delay across an ansible link, the bandwidth is limited only be the time to read the signal off the ansible connection. As switching hardware improves in its ability to push data into and read data out of an ansible link, data transmission speeds will approach infinity.
I have a good friend, a fellow math major here at Rocky. He's a smart guy, but never really "got into" computers- he uses them for school and is as good as anyone researching on Google, but he never really had the time to learn about what makes a computer work. Not to say he's not interested, or wanting to learn- he's just been involved in other things.
