Out of interest, trying to find someone with a REALLY fast internet connection and a top spec windows PC on it (at least i7/Win10) to try something for interest.

 

Only looking for connections way better than gig fibre. Hoping to find someone with 10Gbps... I don't think there's anyone around with 100.

 

Cheers - N

It's nothing that interesting... just curious about the maximum performance possible in a certain situation.

Sorry - should have mentioned that I'm keen for this to be in NZ, not on AWS or something.

I'm aware that there might be literally no-one in a position to help with the right resources - but it was worth an ask.

Probably a few people here with connections like that at work, the issue is likely more about getting approval. Plus I guess you would want the box to be on the outside of the firewall if you're hoping to get close to line speed....

 

Try emailing REANNZ, someone there might help out just for the novelty factor.

Potentially wants something:
1) peered with Spark.
2) with traffic that doesn’t go via Australia.

Really, good luck here.

@Talkiet Apologies, I'll stop...

 

In all seriousness you could also potentially ask an ISP eg 2degrees? @NickMack

Somewhere in the switchroom I have a dual 10G machine with no OS on it yet. If I can find it and get some IPs assigned then sure. But configuring it has been on the todo list for a while, so probably better chance with NZNOG/REANNZ/WAND.

Don't know what you're planning, but I like the idea of leaving it to be hacked and see what the internet does with it.

I love that you have a spare dual 10G connected machine you have lost :-)

 

Hope the CPU is good enough to stream 8K 120FPS uncompresseed :-)

OK, I found it but I don't think this is going to cut it. It's not connected to an ideal switch, and I'm doubting the specs are sufficient:

 

  • CPU 1x Intel E3-1220v5      4Core 3Ghz
  • RAM 8GB

Is streaming 8K doable with CPU, or do you need a decent GPU?

The 8K 120FPS was totally a troll to see if I could excite anyone :-) It's NOTHING like that interesting I'm afraid. I'll email you on your work address but if you have to spend a lot of time getting it ready then I wouldn't bother. Realistically this is just about verifying a new server that has gone in and checking some config parameters that we've had no need to test before for only 100 and Gig access types using it.
