Description

The Internet is suffering from a broad spectrum of technical, sometimes performance-degrading, issues which may eventually question its graceful evolution in light of the observed and foreseen exponential traffic growth. Some of these complications are key challenges to Internet growth, while others are likely to challenge the introduction of innovative services at large.

Various proposals have been made to maintain the original design principles of the Internet model (including simplicity, flexibility and extensibility principles) while allowing for more dynamicity in the way networks are designed and operated. Such dynamics are manifold: introducing some intelligence in the networks facilitates the progressive automation of device configuration tasks and overall service delivery procedures, whereas device autonomy improves decision-making processes and self-repair capabilities, thereby removing the constraints imposed by physical topologies. Advanced context-based routing and forwarding schemes are also nurturing, thus paving the way to implementations that can overcome complications related to multi-vendor networking environments. Some of these proposals are evolutionary, others are rather revolutionary.

A huge “buzz” around several concepts that include Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) has been observed in the recent years. Before the advent of SDN and NFV concepts, the research community investigated so-called “clean slate” proposals that have emerged, mainly thanks to important investment efforts (generally funded by public bodies) although hardly experimented (let alone deployed) at large scale. Assessing to what extent those architectures were deployed is a valuable input to the community.

Various promising techniques and solutions have been proposed; some of them are being specified within SDOs (Standards Developing Organization) while others are perceived as a “buzz” without any concrete deployment plans disclosed by Service Providers. An in-depth understanding and analysis of these proposals should be conducted so as to help Internet players in making appropriate design choices that would meet their requirements.

This book aims to shed some light on the foreseeable yet dramatic evolution of Internet design principles and will also echo the deployment of some of the architectural designs discussed in the “Handbook of Research on Redesigning the Future of Internet Architectures”. Its major ambition remains to offer a comprehensive overview on the recent advances in networking techniques that are likely to shape the future Internet and which also mitigate currently known issues. Towards this end, we solicit contributions on relevant techniques that fall into the scope of the topics listed below.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Christian JACQUENET graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Physique de Marseille, a French school of engineers. He joined Orange in 1989, and he’s currently the Referent Expert of the “Networks of the Future” Orange Expert community. Until recently, he was the Director of the Strategic Program Office for advanced IP networking within Orange Labs. He is also the head of Orange’s IPv6 Program that aims at defining and driving the enforcement of the Group’s IPv6 strategy. He conducts development activities in the areas of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), IP networking, automated service delivery procedures, including service function chaining techniques. He authored and co-authored several Internet standards in the areas of dynamic routing protocols and resource allocation techniques, as well as numerous papers and books in the areas of IP multicast, traffic engineering and automated IP service delivery techniques. He also holds several patents in the areas of advanced home and IP networking techniques.
