Proxy App

[Generic Proxy Appliance -- concluded on 2010/02/01]

The "Generic Proxy Appliance" projects will develop and implement an (internet) proxy appliance helping to utilize unused bandwidth in (wireless) networks

A wireless community network, e.g. Wireless Leiden, can be used for various applications. First of all, it provides point-to-point communication between the users of the local the network: between individual users (using P2P, VoIP or VPN) or the user and some service provider which is directly connected to the network. Secondly, the network can be used as a Last Mile for the Internet access for both mobile and 'fixed' users.

With the current broadband services, there is unused bandwidth at any given moment in time. This project's goal is to develop an internet proxy appliance with additional features allowing to utilize unused bandwidth in (wireless) networks.

The proxy appliance will use Wireless Leiden infrastructure as breeding place for the prototype implementation.
