Google, OpenDNS and Verisign Develop New Technology Aimed at Speeding Up the Internet

Internet search giant Google Inc., along with OpenDNS, Verisign and others, have developed brand-new technology aimed increasing the rate of delivery of Web-based data all around the world.

According to reports, this new technology augments the URL/Domain Name System which provides the IP (Internet Protocol) address required to send or receive data to a website or other web-based service.

Apparently, the edns-client-subnet technology, also known as "Global Internet Speedup," exploits the geographic information associated with a particular system to find the nearest and fastest server for retrieving the data.

“Anybody using OpenDNS or Google Public DNS will immediately get the benefits of this technology," David Ulevitch, OpenDNS Chief Executive, stated during an interview, as reported by Cnet.

Dave Presotto, a Google Distinguished Engineer, said in a statement: "Google is committed to making the Internet faster--not just for our users, but for everyone. We will do that any way we can, by improving protocols, browsers, client software, and networks. We will do that any way we can, by improving protocols, browsers, client software, and networks."
