The “VOX” or “voα” project (α = alpha greek letter, X = x variable) it stand for “Voice Over X” or “Voice Over Alpha” and it’s a brand new technology developed exclusive by MYETV; the idea was to link a key, instead of an I.P. address, to make the messenger functionalities to work outside the internet (over intranet or a shared clients browser databases) and without the need of a public I.P. address; it is builded, also, to working together at the edge of our Content Delivery Network, the keys can be stored globally so the central server can gain much more performances. To be able to better understand the potential of this technology, w ehave prepared some schemas.
The Peer-toPeer network is the new exclusive World global network builded for MYETV with public keys exchanged with a centralized storage, this centralized system can be reached via HTTP with any supported HTTP methods/protocols or other protocol; this network will give you a key at the moment of the connection, this key is the identification key of the machine that makes the request, this key will be associated to a number inside the MYETV platform and with that number other users can reach you and send to you private messages or others, if your key is exposed to the public.
For this purposes, to the users actually abled to experimenting this feature, we’ve added the “P2P Key Privacy Options” to make the key and the number associated with it public or not public; the application for the communication is the MYRC keyboard or the search engine of MYETV with the symbol “+” or “@+” at the start of the word to search. The application is actually under testing and in phase of experiment, not available over all the World; we’ll make it available when it will reach a good level of testing and usage. The application itself can be used also outside the HTTP protocol, in an intranet network or similar in the condition that the centralized system that distribute the key is present.
In these moments we have chosen to activate this new feature only on the whole Italian territory, in the testing phase; in the future we will also open this functionality for other countries, depending on the cryptography laws in force in that country. The peer-to-peer platform to work with VOX is structured like this:
The VOX project, insted of a normal VOIP project, is able to communicate with other peer also without any internet connections; in fact you should just have your key, previously received by any centralized server, and a browser with cookies or HTML5 storage engine enabled; more professionally this approach can work also inside any intranet network and without any restrictions of I.P. address (it work with only one I.P. address for every node and multiple keys). This technology is bring to you as is and we as MYETV are focused to updating the feature, to make it usage without any abuses and to improve any functionalities inside it, time to time.
That’s all, folks; we’re working hard in these days to activate this feature for everyone inside MYETV. Thank you for your patience.
