Company History
 
 

    OCNET® Began in early 1998 in Long Island, NY as a somewhat underground Internet movement involving several person's) of the same or similar interest deciding that Developers of small programs needed a way to get their software published or recognized, without having to convince a major software publisher to buy their designs. At first OCNET was just an organized collection of IRC users sharing data. Since most of the original members where affiliated with programming in some way or fashion. Developing of small utilities, user requested applications, and netfixes was very frequent. OCNET didn't become much of a software developer itself until the new millennium...


 

-The President of OCNET, Christopher D. Boyd (OC) has an extensive background in Software Engineering, Application development, systems design, algorithm Analysis, Code architecture and solution fundamentals. Both MCSE & CCNA(§) Certified and a graduate of UC Berkeley CoE & Virginia Tech in Mechanical/Applied Engineering, original studies in Computer Science, Systems Engineering, Programming and algorithm analysis. He is an expert in many high-level and low-level, object oriented, structured, imperative, procedural, and stack oriented paradigm languages, micro architecture design and development, as well as Assembly language/linked static object CPU and Kernel Call specific languages etc. Including but not limited to OOP/3GL languages such as C/C++ (Native API's such as the Win32/64 Shell API, COM/OLE, WPF WFC SDK/API and managed [COM OLE API/MFC, .NET CLI/CLR API] etc...) C#, Objective C(Cocoa and xCode API), InterDEV, FoxPRO, Fortran, Delphi and MMASM Assembly for x86/IA32 and x86-64 architectures, SQL for JS, J++(Java RTE), Ruby & Ruby On Rails, etc... In addition to WWW Client/Server Object programming languages such as Java/Javascript, PHP, CGI binary for XML extensions, .ASP. In addition to these OOP languages for software development, Christopher has extensive background in hardware/logic programming and engineering such as EEPROM/ASIC programming and development of Combinational Boolean Logic firm/gate arrays for MOSFETs, PLD's and PLA's in language structures such as x86 ASM (Assembly Mnemonic & Machine Language) as well as interdev wrapper languages such as Verilog HDL and SysVerilog. Christopher was the organizer and founder of OCNET and it's guiding principals and aims, Starting which was to just provide professional level Software and systems solutions for the common man rather than exclusively to large scale companies and businesses. OCNET®, which in early 2000 to 2001 was primarily just an underground collection of application developers was pioneering many software archetypes that are considered fundamental approaches today, and to a certain extent, common-place. For instance; Early in the years of 2001-2002 OCNET along with Mr. Boyd and various other developers began writing the kernel-collective for which would be the RAS Remote Network Administration Suite Known as "NETCAR™". This was the first time that secure methods where enrolled in a simple yet powerful interface to remotely Monitor and Administer Machines along the Network Pipe whether local LAN or Global IP.  Shortly after the end of 2002 OCNET turned it's attention towards freelance programming for small proprietorships and entrepreneurs for business oriented use for the purpose of profit. However to this day as well as then OCNET/OCTP continued to release Open Source and Freeware "for the populous" software, utilities, and solutions. It wasn't until several years later when the first collective progressive software programs was released under the OCTP® Moniker. That program was 'NETCAR Pro'. ***TECHNICAL DATA*** In further detail; NETCAR was a remote administration utility which used a high level security hash to allow Novell administrators to manage their networks from a foreign address rather than be within the company's/networks intranet, yet at the same time maintaining backwards compatibility and adaptation to work inside the LAN/:L-Ethernet or Network Domain as well. The Pro series had the inclusion of a 32/64bit porting tool, encrypted block cipher, dynamic libraries and hash table, which allowed execution of software and building of RPC/IPC Event-Handler/COM Model emulator on a OS/X Operating System with shell GUI, yet still allowing the primary Network to encapsulate media access software(VPN, SOCKS Proxy, NAT, uPnP and other protocol's) even if the main IP suite(for TCP/IP, UDP, DNS, WINS, ARP, etc.) was to be of Microsoft® origin. e.g. Microsoft Networking/32bit IP - TCP/IP or NetBeui™. ***END TECHNICAL DATA*** From this point forward, During the summer of 2003 on through the end of the year. it was decided that the direction of OCNET should shift towards a potentially larger market niche, rather than thriving entirely off of freelance programming on a client-per-client basis. Eventually OCNET was releasing several small utilities and applications a month, as well as still being primarily a freelance programming & software engineering company. All under the sole direction of Lead Programmer/Software Engineer & Architect and now President of the newly Registered and Copyrighted Company. OCNET® Networks as an entity officially became © 2003, Registered with the NYS Commerce Dept. and Recognized by the regulatory bodies of the commerce and research dept. Eventually it was decided by Chris and his assistant programmers and architectural team/network that OCNET should create an entirely separate faction to handle and release software for which OCNET was primarily known for. This separate faction would also handle ALL research and development of new ideas, designs, and be the staple and corner-stone of the OCNET Development and Engineering Scheme. Also all Security oriented software, tasks, and methods are developed here, leaving the role of OCNET itself to primarily that of an administrative one.  This marked the birth of OCTP®. OCTP stands for Optical Carriers technical Programming. Now from late 2005 to early 2007 OCTP has ventured into many programming departments. However clearly the most notable software bundle that OCTP has developed in more recent times would be GRDB™, GRDB is a database application originally designed for a client of Christopher's during the freelance coding era. However after extensive development of the software it was decided to release GRDB as a public application and market it to the masses. GRDB has been extensively programmed and revised in recent months, it is an extremely secure application with wide compatibility and network-oriented features. The major difference between GRDB and other company database software/private record keeping software is the ability for GRDB to be able to work well with both a LARGE corporation, or a very small personal client database for a sole proprietorship. It is this 'scalability' of the GRDB software that sets it apart as such a broad solution.

Most Recent developments in OCNET/OCTP are the recent release of two major API's that will enable 3rd party developers to easily program around the OCTP architectural standards. As well as make releasing of utility-type software, and even current platform upgrades MUCH faster and easier on the development-end.

These two API's are TRULAN™ and OCDB™ .

TRULAN was written entirely in a MFC/WIN32 port environment with classes to build sets compatible with cross communication between unix(32 and 64bit) OS's. The final compile was ported in i386ASM, and is shipped as part of the GRDB bundle. All of GRDB's network functions and routines are powered by TRULAN.

OCDB is much the same, however handles the Database and internal filesystem/io buffer routines. OCDB also manages the encryption security and hash implementation of OCTP software. OCDB is now shipped internally as part of the GRDB bundle also. Current Direction of OCNET as a whole is toward the real world consumer... as of June 2006 a new program has been enrolled by the OCNET/OCTP staff called the "NeedYourBytes™" program. This scheme is an effort to use suggestions, made by the consumers and target market of OCNET and OCTP Products, to better the software toward the needs of the buyer. The OCNET Webshell has a feedback forum to enable users to suggest there ideas. Ideas and suggestions may also be emailed to suggestions@ocnet-networks.net OR Contact@addons.ocnet-networks.net. As of late 2006 the creation of a beta testing and quality control task force was arranged to combat the presence of development bugs or software glitches. During mid 2007 The Entire Security hash and systems vulnerability of the HDEC architecture of all 3 packages (TRULAN & OCDB API, the internal hash of GRDB) was tested and ensured completely airtight. Final software versions of major consumer releases, designated for public evaluation and eventual consumer sales... including on this website, will not EVER be allowed to be licensed and declared as 'final' until the QC team passes and certifies the software. This has been a company policy since the collective path of OCNET has been towards consumer software of the highest grade.  As of August 24th 2007, GRDB received all of it's certifications. Begining, as of Sept. 2007 : OCNET® and OCTP® began the finalization processes of completely enrolling the website and domain: www.ocnet-networks.net. Several new ambitious projects have also been discussed during company meetings. A new project tentatively codenamed "Titan Curtain" (pat. pending ®) is scheduled for engineering testing. The Project is still deemed to be in "experimental' phases. Which means that it was approved for initial testing from the drawing board, and it's feasibility is currently being explored. More information about this new project will be released soon. Possible projects and applications are all conceived as ideas which are discussed and thought out by Lead programmer and Developer Christopher David Boyd, as well as Second and Third Programmers and Engineers. A crucial part now included in the process since 2007 is  the research team. A group of OCTP programmers, engineers, or Beta-testers are tasked with researching the need for a specific program or piece of software, then there findings are revealed at a second meeting, and the necessity/Demand for such a program is gone over. If the program has been considered useful and desirable, it enters the next stage, which is 'experimental development' A.K.A "Engineering testing". This is where the prototype core/kernel or engine of the software is written in the most basic format possible, and a flowchart-for-real-time developers scheme is brainstormed. These first two steps in developing a title at the OCNET / OCTP Company are the most crucial by far. Drastic changes can take shape at this point. ***AS OF*** Sept. 2010 - It has been announced by OCNET that an IRC Daemon will reside on the OCNET Main Network hub... This Daemon will be public for all to create and manage channels and bots, following and abiding by the typical IRC conduct rule set. A OCNET News and Network Status channel will exist at all times, an OCTP Developers news and project status channel will also exist. As well as OCNET IRC Server help channels. Operators will be chosen from OCNET/OCTP Staff. ***MORE NEWS*** Jan. 2013 - Backbone installed as alternate feed circuit on concentrator node. additional symmetric 45mbps T3OC1 ASTM pipe compliments current circuit for load bearing purposes. New circuit turned on Friday Feb. 13th 2013.  

 

***ALSO: As of July 2014 - OCNET is offering a full Personal and Network Computer repair service, this includes both software and hardware repair and/or installation of hardware, Cleaning of Spyware, Malware, Ad-ware, Virii, Trojans, Etc... Full diagnostics available at reasonable prices, guaranteed lower than others in the market. It was decided by Mr. Boyd himself that OCNET Networks would offer PC-repair services in order to take advantage of the considerable amount of talent OCNET maintains as a staff-entity, and also to satisfy a niche market with much more affordable prices than the competition. OCNET Networks in many cases will be able to pick up the machine directly from the customers location. This applies only to the local Long Island, NY Area.
