About Anternet

Did you know that Anternet could be the Internet of Today!

We want to share a little history about our name Anternet

Years ago two professors, one biology professor that studied the Ants and found out that the Ants the way that how they decide how fast to send out ants to gather food—she thought that the ant algorithm could apply to other types of networks.

Did you know that Anternet could be the Internet of Today!

So she asked Balaji Prabhakar the other professor of computer science and electrical engineering at Stanford University  

with her idea. Prabhakar realized that the way her harvester ant network worked sounded a lot like Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), the algorithm that keeps the data traveling the Internet from bogging down when congestion increases or bandwidth decreases.

We here at Anternet are sure that if these studies would have been done before that the Internet was born that the Internet of today would have been called Anternet in response

to crediting the Ants for developing this  communications network
