  9. 9. Internet Development History of the Internet The start of the Internet resulted in some imaginative thinking by people in the early 1960s that saw immense possibilities in allowing computers to share information on research and growth in scientific and military fields. 1962- J.C.R. Licklider of MIT, first predicted a worldwide network of computers and moved over to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in late 1962 to help develop it. 1965- Lawrence Roberts also of MIT linked two computers together located in Massachusetts and California over dial-up telephone lines. 1966- Roberts moved over to DARPA and developed his plan for ARPANET. (Advanced Research Projects Agency) 1969- The Internet was brought online with a contract held by Advanced Research Projects Agency (renamed ARPA) which at first connected four major computers at universities (Stanford Research Institute, UCLA, University of Utah, and UCSB). 1970- MIT, Harvard, BBN, and Systems Development Corp (SDC) in Santa Monica, Cal. were added. NASA/Ames, Mitre, Burroughs, and too many more to list. Realistically, the Internet was designed to provide communications that would work if some of the sites were destroyed by nuclear attack. This was needed to keep communication open during vital periods. If one route was not available, routers would direct traffic around the network via alternate routes. There were no home or office personal computers in those days, and anyone who used it, had to learn to use a very complex system. 9
  10. 10. 1972- Ray Tomlinson of BBN modified e-mail for ARPANET. He chose the @ symbol from the symbols on his teletype to link the username and address. 1973- To enabling logging on a remote computer, the telnet was developed. This application is used to connect to remote computers, usually via the telnet port. For example, when you "telnet in from home to check your mail at work", you are using telnet to connect from one computer (your computer) to another computer (work's computer) commonly in a different location. 1978- Unix to Unix Copy Protocol (UUCP) was invented at Bell Labs. Usenet was started in 1979 based on UUCP. Discussion groups also called news groups provided means of exchanging information throughout the world. Many Internet sites took benefit of the accessibility of newsgroups. It was a momentous part of community building that took place on the networks. 1986- The National Science Foundation funded NSFNet (The National Science Foundation Network) as a cross country 56 Kbps backbone for the Internet. They upheld their sponsorship for nearly ten years, laying down rules for its non-commercial government and research uses. 1989- An archiver for ftp sites named Archie was created by Peter Deutsch and his team at McGill University in Montreal. This software would sporadically get in touch with all known available ftp sites, make a list their files, and continue to build a searchable index of the software. 1989- To make the net easier and more understandable to use, Tim Berners-Lee and others at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, more popularly known as CERN, developed a new protocol. This protocol, also known as the World Wide Web, was based on hypertext. Hypertext is a way of a system of inserting links in text to link to other text. 1991- The University of Minnesota wanted to develop a simple menu system to access files and information on campus through their local network. The first friendly interface to the Internet was developed there 1993- Marc Andreessen and his team at the (NCSA) also known as the National Center For Supercomputing Applications developed a graphical browser called Mosaic. After that Marc Andreessen lead the 10
  11. 11. development of another successful graphical browser called Netscape. Microsoft soon after developed its Microsoft Internet Explorer. 1998- Bill Gates released Windows 98 with the Microsoft browser that was incorporated into the desktop in June of 1998. 1992- The first national commercial online service to offer Internet access to its subscribers was Delphi. It opened up an email connection in July of this year and full Internet service in November. 1993-Present- 56K modems were the most commonly used speeds used and the providers who are offering them are growing steadily. 56K is not a fast connection and can only carry low quality multimedia, such as sound and video. New technologies have developed cable modems, DSL (digital subscriber lines), and satellite which offer faster and a more reliable connection In 1988 soon after the completion of the T 1 NSFNET backbone, traffic increased so quickly that plans immediately began on upgrading the network again. In 1991 CSNET (which consisted of 56Kbps lines) was discontinued having fulfilled its important early role in the provision of academic networking service. In 1992 Internet Society is chartered. Worldwide Web released by CERN. In 1993 Inter NIC created by NSF to provide specific Internet services In 1994 no major changes were made to the physical network In 1995 the National Science Foundation announced that as of April 30, 1995 it would no longer allow direct access to the NSF backbone. In 1996 most Internet traffic is carried by backbones of independent ISPs, including MCI, AT&T, Sprint, UUNet, BBN planet, ANS, and more. 1997 holding 19.5 Million Hosts, 1 Million WWW sites, 71,618 Newsgroups currently the Internet Society, the group that controls the INTERNET, is trying to figure out new TCP/IP to be able to have billions of addresses, rather than the comparatively limited system of today. 11
  12. 12. Methods for Managing Information on Internet: • World Wide Web • E-mail • FTP • Usenet • Telnet • MIRC • Mailing Lists • YAHOO messenger • Hotmail messenger • etc The above all method becomes necessary method in these days because all these are used in various ways in different field. The E-mail is one of the most important among them. The world wide web pages are also most important among all of them .WEB pages are the best way to communicate the information as whole and sole about a single company as well as group of companies. It is very important that all these communication methods are related to inter net. The inter net could be provided by ISP. Local History Pakistan • In 1996 Brain NET works was established one of the pioneers in Internet services • Incorporated in 1996 Fascom is a public limited company with an authorized capital of Rs. 200 million. • COMSATS started its Internet Project in January 1997 with Points of Presence (POP) in three major cities of Pakistan, i.e. Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad • In March 1997 Cyber. Net had made a name for itself as one of the leading ISP’s in the country within a short span of three years. 12
  13. 13. • Formed in March 1999, Paknet Limited a fully owned Subsidiary of Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) started commercial operation in January 2000 • Now at the present there are more then 112 service providers in the market, from giants to low profile . This indicate that the internet service provider have a great potential in Pakistan and it is also noted that Pakistan have some others potential aspect in internet field. Pakistan net industry: The Internet service was deregulated in the year 1995, when a few organisations from the private sector were granted licenses to launch the service. Thereafter, there was a loot sale for the issuance of licenses. PTA issued a total of 118 licenses without conducting a market study, assessing the actual market potential and educating the new applicants about the viability of the business. Since the start of Internet was easy, because of low initial investment and space requirements, the investors rushed to this new avenue without conducting market and feasibility studies as happens in most of the business areas (textile and sugar industry boom for example) in Pakistan. It was (supposedly) attractive, as the revenue was projected to be very high and the market was assumed to be all time expanding. The hidden costs were ignored, ongoing investment requirements for continuous expansion were not considered, and above all, huge number of new entrants was never accounted for. The total private sector investment in the industry is estimated to be over PRs 2.5 billion corresponded by a proportionate infrastructure investment by PTCL. According to PTA figure as published in April 2002, the total number of subscribers was about 417,000, which may be close to 0.5 million by now. The actual number could be even lower as a large number of subscribers use multiple ISPs. The limited general consumers market is dominated by five large ISPs, who share about 48 per cent of the total, using about 42 per cent of the resources. The rest of the pie (52 per cent) is shared by 55 ISPs, using 58 per cent of the resources. The following table gives a summary of the subscribers and resource distribution. The market share of most of the ISPs is less than 1 per cent, and their presence is generally limited to only one city. About 80 per cent of the subscribers are concentrated in three major cities i.e., Lahore (25 per 13
  14. 14. cent), Islamabad (11 per cent) and Karachi (44 per cent). The rest of the 20 per cent accounts for other small cities and towns. The limited demand and larger supply has resulted in a cut throat competition, pushing the ISPs into a severe price war. Despite the fact that the minimum average cost per hour ranges between PRs 12 - 15, the average sale price for most of the ISPs ranges between PRs 5 - 10 per hour, resulting in negative cash flow. Since the market growth, both in terms of size and usage, is not enough to absorb the infrastructure capacity installed, the ISP industry in Pakistan is facing the same challenge as the telecom industry is facing worldwide because of overcapacity. Under the circumstances, the large ISPs may be earning some because of not being able to achieve the economies of scale. The deployed resources are scattered all over with limited subscriber base, which is not even enough to meet the fixed cost. Under the circumstances, the same pie, the growth of which is very slow, is being shared by disproportionate number of ISPs. The current usage per subscriber is only about 15 hours per subscriber per month. The usage includes chatting and messaging (40 per cent), porno surfing (15 per cent), IP telephony (20 per cent), entertainment etc. (15 per cent) and research and information (10 per cent). Internet is a research tool being major source of information for students and researchers, an e-commerce tool for business community and a media for messaging, communication and entertainment. The mode of communication is English language. Despite its usefulness, Pakistan market is not responding well for the following reasons. • The major internet market comprises of the students, who can read and write English, primarily from English medium private schools. A small number of graduate and postgraduate students from government institutions also join the community. The size of this market segment, which constitutes about 90 per cent of the subscribers, becomes limited because of language barrier. • The education in our institutions, including the private sector schools, is not research oriented, thus use of internet in the student community is mostly in non productive areas, which does not ensure a regular and extensive use. E-mail, chatting cannot continue for longer hours. • Internet is a monster of information. The users are lost in search of specific information by thousands of websites. Exploring these sites and reaching the desired one is a laborious and frustrating job. The 14
  15. 15. user keeps counting the minutes being charged, while going through the most likely sites. • VOIP was another major use of Internet, which could not continue at the same pace because the service providers like Dialpiad, Nt2phone etc. started charging, and the PTCL started blocking these sites. • A large majority of population cannot afford to buy the computer, do not have the telephone connection or even cannot afford additional spending on internet. • E-commerce platform is yet not ready. There are neither secured payment systems nor any clearing houses established. The banking sector, which plays a major role in this respect, is long way from even being computerised. • The ISPs are primarily playing the role of retailer i.e. buying the bandwidth in bulk and selling it in retail. They are not adding any value to arouse the interest of the user and keep him connected. No money is spent on R&D for this purpose. Given the above barriers and larger supply of ISPs than the demand. There is a need to take serious steps by the concerned corners including educational institutions, the government and more importantly the ISPs themselves. Some of these steps are of long-term and short-term in nature. Some suggestions are given as follows in this respect: The smaller ISPs should join hands and form one or may be two (limited) companies, to which they become shareholders. This way the number of ISPs will reduce to, 6 to 7 only. The resources will be pooled and instead of competition with each other, and the larger ISPs individually, they will be able to compete with larger ISPs. Overheads will be cut down; economies of scale and operational efficiencies will be achieved. This new company having an immediate market share of 52 per cent should be run by professional management to achieve the desired objectives. The company will have immediate presence in all the major cities and will be able to offer roaming and other value added services immediately. The ISPs should start R&D and offer value added services, like development of portal of various areas. For example, a portal for engineering students, having engineering related educational 15
  16. 16. information and links etc., could provide ease for the engineering students. Similarly, portals for medical students, business community, welfare organisations and social services can be developed, and may be offered, even on subscription. To attract the corporate sector, DSL or Wireless Broadband services should be launched either by private sector, PTCL or under a joint venture in all the major cities at low prices. The syllabus of the schools must introduce a compulsory subject on Information Technology, including Internet at least for class 8 to 10. The education system should be turned into research-oriented system, where students are asked to prepare research papers and conduct case studies. The government should encourage setting-up computer manufacturing industry by giving incentives. The Internet community centres should be established for poor. We must remember that communication technology is converging into Internet, and we have to be prepared for that. We must take all possible measure for our benefit, our country and our generations to come. % Share ISPs Bandwidth Ports Subs Paknet 18 15 21 CyberNet 5 11 9 Brain net 12 7 7 World On Line 5 7 6 Supernet 2 2 5 Subtotal 42 42 48 Rest (55) 58 58 52 Total 100 100 100 16

  23. 23. Important of interlink net: No body can deny the fact that net is become an essential thing in today life. The interlink net provide a 24 hours in 7 day a week service .it is also used fiber optics technology as well as the complete DSN connection. Concept and used in interlink net: The Internet is truly an amazing tool that allows communication and data sharing throughout the world. Ever wonder how the Internet works? Not many Internet users do, but for those with the inquiring minds read on. The interlink net provide this facility for their consumer that how inter net work. What's A Server/Client? By using the interlink net we only used the concept of client and server In order to connect to a home starting page or an Internet website, you have to connect to something that is called a "server". These servers work all night and all day, 24/7, unless there is a problem. Interlink net have its own Servers send information and data back and forth. Internet users that request information from these hardworking servers are called "clients". The computer you are on using right now is a client that has requested information ISP- Connections server of interlink net. Computers Talk to One Another By Using Protocols The interlink net servers and its clients communicate with each other through a computer speak (languages) called protocols. When you are surfing the Internet from web site to web site, have you ever noticed that every single web site address starts with "http://"? This stands for "hypertext transfer protocol", which is how the World Wide Web works. There are several other protocols for electronic mail, computer file transfers and much, much more. All these work very well on interlink net. 23
  24. 24. Each Computer Has a ISP Address: Packets of computer information are sent from computer to computer using numerical addresses called IP addresses. (Kind of like each computer has it's own P.O. Box number).The IP address tells each computer where the packet came from or where it needs to go. An IP address is a series of four numbers connected by dots. For example, a servers packet could read something like this: "123.345.666.1".Finally, Internet Browses Enable You To See/Read This Information In order for a client to see and view the information/data that a server sends, an Internet browser is needed. The leading Internet browsers such as Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera and others translate the information a server sends to a client. It's all done nice, neat and easy for the Internet users viewing pleasure. Compare high speed dial-up Internet access providers. Each high speed dial-up provider has special technology integrated into their software that allows you to connect to the Internet at faster Internet speeds then ever before. Best of all, setup is easy and the more you use your high speed connection, the faster it gets. You will notice the speed difference! What's gets accelerated: HTML, Markup, Javascript, Graphics and Email. What does not get accelerated: Steaming media, audio, video, uploading and downloading. With a high speed Internet provider, enjoy these outstanding features: • Internet connection speeds up to 50% faster than a standard dial-up modem. • No new equipment is required - use your current modem and phone line. • No contracts, set-up fees, commitments or cancel fees. And the interlink net is provide a high speed internet services I all over the Pakistan .the reason behind that is that it is contain fiber OPTICS cable. 24
  25. 25. How Fast/Benefits of a Satellite Internet Connection? Satellite broadband is the only high-speed Internet technology that's available everywhere in the United States. Compare to a typical dial- up service, the difference in the amount of speed is night and day: • You can download software, streaming media, videos in minutes. • There's no more waiting for web pages to fully finish loading. They are typically done within a couple of seconds. • Always on Internet connection - no logging on or off. In Pakistan we interlink are going to introduce this facility in coming soon and we hopeful this facility introduce a new trend in Pakistan. Minimum PC Requirements/Operating Systems Interlink net only works with the windows operating systems of Windows 98, Windows Me, and Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The minimum PC system requirements are as follows: • Pentium II 333 MHz or faster • 64MB RAM (Windows 98SE and Windows Me); 128MB RAM • 20MB of free hard drive space • Analog modem - used only once for commissioning the account • One available USB port These all thing are easily available in these areas of Pakistan and we provide facility for these features. Customer Service and Account Activation Inter link net 24/7 toll-free customer support for your convenience. There are online facilities and frequent issues to browse while troubleshooting technical questions. Account activation takes place after all equipment is installed, and an Internet connection is established. These all above things required a proper ISP service and the INTERLINK NET provide these facilities as much as posible. The 25
  26. 26. services provided by INTER LINK NET is quite good and well because of the following features. Fastest because of fiber base technology Innovative technology Configure with your pc Client service available on 24 hours TREND AND BARRIERS IN CREATION OF INTER LINK NET: Trends and Barriers • Government initiative • Teledensity • Copyright violation • Insufficient phones • PTCL monopoly • Bad consequences The interlink net face the all following sort of problem that a other company faces in these days in the net services industry.
