What internet bandwidth/speed was this project designed to make use of?
This project was designed to make use of broadband networks such as CANet 3 or 4. Several workarounds were devised to address the lack of access to broadband by project partners, including local caching of server content.
Is this project viable using the presently available commercial internet
The project is viable when using “high-speed” access such as provided by cable companies and Sympatico.
Is the application developed through this project designed to make use of
Because the tools transmit multiple audio and video tracks which must be synchronized and because the server must respond to “on-the-fly” user preference changes, broadband networks are ideal.
Describe the extent to which the application developed through this project
would be made more viable/improved/accelerated using higher speed bandwidth
than presently available?
As discussed above and in section 2.1 the serving of personalized learning object assemblies would greatly benefit from higher-speed bandwidth. The server can be more responsive, video can be streamed and adapted without noticeable delay and distortion using higher bandwidths.
