    • A Short Explanation of the CloverleafA more advantageous architecture for telecom processes is required: Telecommunications networks today consist of multiple networks based onmultiple technologies, e.g., Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), CableTelevision (CATV). This dilemma also extends to the structure of all present networksand their underlying technologies. [See: Problem, Overlay, Cloverleaf] Each of thesenetworks, in turn consists of disparate computing nodes. A more successful utilization ofthese networks requires a platform offering more programmability into the core of thosenetworks and that would require a cloverleaf like infrastructure. Case in point: Although the telephone network (PSTN) could be called theworld’s first distributed computing network —telephone switching systems do not have a“main” (program) architecture; there are many different applications going on inside theirsystems at one time (i.e., Internet, VOD & Video Teleconferencing). As a result, theirmarkets are dominated by many networks whose applications are decomposed intosmaller components with no common interface to access them variably and/or ondemand. [See: Problem, Overlay, Cloverleaf). On-the-other-hand, if a method to addressdifferences with and between these networks (AND THEIR COMPONENTS) existed,this would be evolutionary and cut cost to performance ratios dramatically. Becausefundamentally, at least for an agile end-user, more useful and accessible individualapplications requiring different bits (asymmetrical) would be far more useful than justmore bits (synchronous). [See IDC White Paper: Making the Case for Flexible Next-Generation Transport Networks; Sterling Perrin; May 2005]Understanding the potential opportunity:See: USPTO #5,577,042. We have a patented method for an applications programminginterface (API) that exercises control over the entire radio spectrum —including thebroadcast (TV) spectrum as well as the Telecommunications (Telco, SAT, Wireless)spectrum. [See: www. ntia.doc.gov/osmhome/allochart.pdf.] We have realized a usefultechnical advantage by utilizing an architecture (analogous to a highway cloverleaf) thatallows end users to build dynamic virtual paths that will ‘dance’ over the publiclyswitched telephone networks (PSTN) —as-well-as existing (SAT) broadcast channels.[See: Problem, Overlay, Cloverleaf] What this means is that the problem of “pulling” existing overlay roadways(networks) together can now be put into working order by simply “pushing” eachoperating (network) system onto an Information SuperHighway. In effect: MBC’scloverleaf method could leverage all old (operating systems) networks together tomaximize their combined “pull.” Just by retooling existing installed base into a “whole”network greater than the sum of their “parts.” [See: Cloud of Hot Zones]Copyright ©2006 McGraw Broadcast Communications
