Technology[edit]

Qnext combines multiple technologies to connect users, facilitate communication, manage shared content and deliver shared media to anyone in an efficient way.[1] Qnext uses Java, services-delivery architecture, Unicode, hybrid P2P[2] / Web 2.0 (Peer2Web),[3] Peer2Mobile and cross-platform technologies. Qnext services are plug-ins to the Qnext core with a high security level[4] using SSL encryption. With Qnext, users can share and provide access to their digital content directly from their computers without the need to upload any of the shared content to external servers.

Currently with the 'consumer' version of Qnext, our 'Access Controls' set by the user or Discretionary Access Control (DAC). The Qnext data owner determines who can access specific resources. For example, a user can create a hierarchy of files to be accessed, by invitation, or certain permissions.

Digital content can be viewed in its orginal source which means that that vital content does not need to be stored in a public cloud. With no servers in the way to slow down, file transfers occur as fast as the Internet service connection and internet internet connected device will allow. Transfers cannot be hacked or intercepted.

Qnext allows sending and receiving files from other instant messaging services. Most services (such as ICQ, Microsoft Messenger service, and Yahoo! Messenger, etc. have a file size limit and the transfers travel through a server infrastructure. This may compromise security, privacy and quality of service.

Photo sharing is a way to share photos with anyone in seconds, even if the recipients don’t have Qnext.[5] Any photos at any file format and resolution can be shared with any IM or email contact. Unlike other photo sharing tools, Qnext does not limit the number of photos users can share at a time, or the size of each individual photo. Just select the photos to share, choose your audience (IM or email contacts) and recipients will receive a link that lets them view, zoom, run a slide show, or download any or all photos in small or original format and resolution. No need to upload any photos to public websites.

File sharing is a means to get big files where they need to go, fast.[6][7] Share an unlimited amount of files or folders of any size. Select the IM or email contacts you want to share with and that is all. Recipients will get a link in an email or an instant message and be able to download any or all of the shared files from any web browser in the world.

Streaming media (music) allows listening to an entire music library and iTunes or Windows Media Player playlists from anywhere in the world.[8] Choose up to 700,000 songs and select an audience; the tunes will be streamed quickly to any who are chosen. Whether users want to share with themselves or with friends, this is the only way to stream your music to any web browser. The users’ library can be browsed by artist, album or genre, or created and shared user’s favorite playlist. Your audience can make their own playlist from your tunes.

Data transmission is secured using SSL encryption

Qnext users can:

  • Set permission to allow themselves or others to remotely access their PC from any web browser.
  • Allow a person or a group to view and/or control specific applications on their computer as others watch in real-time (ideal for software demonstrations).
  • Request one-on-one assistance from any Qnext contact by allowing them to access your computer, as you watch their action in real-time.
