Abstract

Telecommunication networks enable connecting of users at different places so that the users can simultaneously use the same multi-user virtual environment. This enables collaboration between the users of the virtual environment over the network because they can interact with each other and manipulate the same objects in real time. In addition to the network and user device, a protocol is needed to transport real-time data between the users. Although transport protocols that are suitable for real-time interaction should be used, their use can be denied for security reasons. But, transport protocols that are not restricted for security reasons can have other characteristics that make them unsuitable for real-time interaction. The subject of this Master's thesis was to research what kind of transport protocol should be used to achieve real-time interaction over the network. As a result of the research, the constraints of the current Internet transport protocols are avoided to enable collaboration of distinct users in the same multi-user virtual environment. As the practical part of this Master's thesis, the author has developed the concept of fake tunneling used on the Internet Protocol (IP) based networks. Fake tunneling is designed according to the current Internet transport protocols and implemented according to the standard, de facto, interfaces. Fake tunneling was compared to the current transport protocols and was shown to be superior.
