  • Outline
    • What is Future Internet?
    • Research Roadmap of Future Internet
    • 4WARD
      • Overview
      • Research Goal
      • Key Issues
      • Work Packages
    • Summary
  • What is Future Internet?
    • Need to rethink the fundamental assumptions and design decisions underlying its current architecture
    • Two principal ways in which to evolve or change a system
      • Evolutionary approach (Incremental) : a system is moved from one state to another with incremental patches
      • Revolutionary approach (Clean-slate) : the system is redesigned from scratch to offer improved abstractions and/or performance, while providing similar functionality based on new core principles
    • Future Internet?
      • Clean Slate design of the Internet’s architecture to satisfy the growing demands
      • Management issues of Future Internet also need to be considered from the stage of design
    • Research Goal for Future Internet
      • Performing research for Future Internet and designing new network architectures
      • Building an experimental facility

  • 4WARD Partners
  • 4WARD’s Research Goal
    • Overcomes current Internet architectural impasse through a set of radical architectural approaches built on mobile and wireless background
    • Improve ability to design interoperable and complementary families of network architecture
    • Enable the co-existence of multiple networks on common platforms
    • Enhance the utility of networks by making them self-managing
    • Increase robustness and efficiency of networks by leveraging diversity
    • Improve application support by a new information-centric paradigm
  • 4WARD’s Strategic Objective
    • By creating a family of dependable and interoperable networks providing direct and ubiquitous access to information
      • Increase the competitiveness of the European networking industry
      • Improve the quality of life for European citizens
    • Goal
      • Make the development of networks and networked applications faster and easier, leading to both more advanced and more affordable communication services
  • Key Issues
    • Interoperability
      • A mew approach to a multitude of networks
      • Create a framework for many networks to bloom as part of a family of interoperable networks that can coexist and complement each other
    • Self-Management
      • Have a ‘default-on’ management entity, which is an inseparable part of the network itself
      • Capable of adjusting itself to difference network sizes, configurations, and external conditions
    • Active Network Path
      • Consider a path as an active part of the network that controls itself and provides customized transport services
    • Information-Centric
      • Build a network as a network of information and services where services and information are mobile and distributed
  • Technical Approach (1)
    • Combine
      • Innovations needed to improve the operation of any single network architecture
      • Multiple different and specialized network architecture
    • Work
      • On innovations overcoming the shortcomings of current communication networks (Internet)
      • In a framework that allows the coexistence, interoperability, and complementarity of several network architecture
      • In an integrated fashion, avoiding pitfalls like the current Internet’s ‘patch on a patch’ approach
  • Technical Approach (2)
    • Structured into 6 work packages
      • 3 packages: consider innovations for a single network architecture
      • 1 package: study the use of virtualization to allow multiple networking architectures to coexist on the same infrastructure
      • 1 package: Look at the design and development of interoperable architectures
      • 1 package: Ensure that all envisaged developments take proper account of essential non-technical issues
  • Work Phases
