Title: Next Generation Internet

Next Generation Internet
  • Bill St. Arnaud

  • Dennis Jennings original director for NSFnet
  • The original Internet was neither pre-ordained or
    a given
  • Internet was fortunate series of accidental
  • We could have easily ended up with X.25 or ATM
    has the foundation of the Internet as we know it
  • Large part of its success was the telcos ignored
    Internet development for the first 20 years
  • Still ignoring it
  • Will a 20 year pure research program result in a
    better Internet?
  • Future Internet has to be anchored with practical
    implementation issues and business models
  • Critical role for NRENs GLIF

NSF/OECD workshop Jan 31
Social Economic Factors Shaping the Future of
the Internet
  • In terms of the Future of the Internet there is a
    current window of opportunity to consider
    economic, social and regulatory issues in
    relation to work being undertaken under the
    umbrella of the Global Environment for Network
    Innovations (GENI) and the OECD Committee on
    information and communications policy (ICCP).
  • The NSF/OECD Workshop will bring together whos
    who of economists, policy-makers, social
    scientists and technologists, to consider a broad
    range of factors which have relevance for the
    future of the Internet.
  • In considering a new infrastructure, such as
    GENI, it is important to highlight the Internets
    growing role as a driver of innovation leading to
    economic growth and social well-being.
    Specifically, Workshop participants are asked to
    draw lessons from the applications and use
    associated with the evolution of the current
    Internet and to identify the features that have
    been critical to the Internets success.
  • At the same time, the Internet faces many
    challenges which are not only related to its
    technical limitations and it is increasingly
    clear that many of the problems the Internet has
    encountered concern economic and social issues.

The research challenge
  • The Internet is a tremendous success, but
  • Can we meet tomorrows needs by incremental
    improvement of todays design?
  • NSF and its research community have concluded
    that they must take a leadership position with
    respect to revolutionary network research, and
    must provide suitable infrastructure for this

Next Generation Internet approaches
  • Incremental
  • Next Generation Internet will be achieved through
    small incremental improvements to existing
  • E.g. Phosphorous, NGI
  • Federated
  • Next Generation Internet will be a federation of
    different networks with different architectures
    and protocols
  • E.g. CAnet 4, NLR, SURFnet
  • Big Bang
  • Next Generation Internet will have to be a
    complete fresh start
  • E.g. NewARCH, GENI

Next Generation Internet Initiatives
  • FIND Future Internet Directions - 40m PI
    driven research program
  • GENI Global Experimental Network Initiative
    proposed 350m infrastructure to support next
    generation Internet research
  • NewARCH New Internet Architecture
  • CORONET - Dynamic Multi-Terabit Core Optical
    Networks Architecture, Protocols, Control and
  • CBMANET - Control-Based Mobile Ad-Hoc Networking
  • EU
  • FIRE -Autonomic networks and self organizing
  • NGI Next Generation Internet Initiative

FIND An NSF challenge question
  • 1) What are the requirements for the global
    network of 10 or 15 years from now, and what
    should that network look like?
  • To conceive the future, it helps to let go of the
  • 2) How would we re-conceive tomorrows global
    network today, if we could design it from
  • This is not change for the sake of change, but a
    chance to free our minds.

Security and reliability
  • Define the objective broadly.
  • Classic security, availability, resilience.
  • Hard because
  • Many problems are in the end-hosts.
  • Many problems involve a balance of interests.
  • Among actors, states and societies.
  • We dont have agreement about the objective.
  • Different contexts call for different answers.
  • We dont have a coherent approach.

Economic landscape
  • In 1975, it was not clear to the early designers
    that we were designing the landscape of
    investment and competition.
  • Now it is.
  • Could we do a better job to shape
  • Regulation (or lack of)?
  • Continued investment and innovation?
  • Options for user choice?
  • Deployment of new services?
  • Health of the value chain?
  • Consider the role of facilities providers, for
  • Role of advertising?

Technology drivers
  • New network technology.
  • Usual place to start, but I will get to it later.
  • New computing technology.
  • Whatever computing is, that is what the Internet
    should support.
  • The Internet grew up in a stable PC time.
  • The cellular industry evolved independently.
  • Tomorrow many different views sensors, cell
    phones, embedded processors, 100 laptops, etc.
  • Rich space of services and servers.
  • Design alternatives will have important influence
    on personal choice, control, innovation, etc.

Summary--integrative visions
  • What are candidate designs of a future global
    network suited for the needs of 2020?
  • What are good design principles for large scale
    future distributed systems and services?
  • Alternative approaches will lead to different
    outcomes in the socio-technical space.

Van Jacobson
  • Content Centric Networking
  • Move from channels to platforms
  • The old Internet and telecom was focused on
    setting up communication channels to distribute
    data routers, switches, paths, etc
  • But data should not have locality
  • Convergence of cyber-infrastructure and next
    generation Internet
  • Integration of Grids, Web 2.0, SOA, P2P,
    Enterprise 2.0 and NGI
  • Possible significant impact on new business models

ISOC Internet 2020
  • Not Internet 2 too or similar incremental
  • Radical transformative network originating from
    research community
  • Pervasive Information systems
  • Terabit to the desktop

Internet 2020- What will be there
  • Optical of course
  • Terabits to the Desktop
  • Hybrid networks
  • Generic packet based IP-network and
  • Dynamically established high speed end-to-end
    optical circuits
  • Bandwidth on Demand (BoD)
  • Lambda Grids

  • Require interdisciplinary research
  • Long term research, not restricted to 4 years
  • More like 10 to 15 years
  • Meanwhile we see short term partial fixes
  • E.g. NRENs move towards fully owned optical
    hybrid networks
  • Works within NREN
  • Commercial providers work on local solutions
  • Network Neutrality debate
  • Walled garden approaches or
  • Verticalization

GENI Vision Implementation
  • A shared facility that allows
  • Concurrent exploration of a broad range of
    experimental networks and distributed services
  • Interconnection among these experimental networks
    and with the Internet
  • Real users utilizing experimental services
  • Observation, measurement, and recording of the
    resulting experimental outcomes
  • Funding for new router architecture already
  • Third RE network in the USA

Limits of Internet architecture and IP, current
  • Scalability
  • devices (users AND nodes, mostly wireless) will
    outnumber humans by several orders of magnitude
  • Not only numbering Service-centric networks
    invalidate the source-destination approach of the
    Internet (semantic addressing, space-aware
  • Need to overcome the intrinsic limitations of a
    centralised control (self-management,
    self-organisation), multidisciplinary approaches
    to cope with complexity (e.g. bio-inspired)
  • Multiple points of attachments to the
    infrastructure, edge diversity
  • Routing
  • Suitability for ad-hoc/multi-hop/mesh networking
  • disconnected operation is common (opportunistic,
    trust and privacy, )
  • Mobility
  • Mobile IP (or MIPv6) not effective, overhead
  • Transparency
  • QoS???
  • Web of trust?
  • Usability
  • Security
  • How to embed it, how to cope with heterogeneous
  • Machine-to-machine communication

Problem You cant make money from broadband
  • Broadband networks, whether wireless or FTTx,
    overbuilders, municipal or customer owned,
    requires huge capital outlay with a big risk of
    slow take-up. In addition
  • subject to intense competition from incumbents
  • High churn
  • Low takeup Tyranny of the takeup
  • Consumers unwilling to spend more than 40/mo for
  • Generally prefer lower cost, rather than higher
  • http//
  • Margins are very thin, even for incumbents
  • Many companies starting to offer free broadband,
    both wired and wireless
  • Inuk, Sky, TalkTalk, Google, Microsoft, Cable and
    Wireless etc
  • The real winners in the broadband game are those
    providing advanced services
  • Google, Inuk, Yahoo, Skype, Joost, etc
  • CBS is going to deliver prime time TV over
    Internet this fall one day ahead of broadcast

Net Neutrality CALEA- etc
  • Universities and Telephone companies face the
    same problem of small number of heavy users
    consuming expensive Internet bandwidth
  • University solution is to cap bandwidth from
    dormitories and/or block types of traffic
  • Telecom solution is to build a two tiered
    Internet or doing volume capping
  • A high speed un-congested channel for the telco
    traffic particularly aimed at carrying video
  • Universities NRENs can play a leadership role
    in piloting new last mile (hundred feet)
    architectures that address problems of
  • May serve as possible model for telcos
  • University students are ideal early adopters and
    were instrumental in diffusion of the Internet
    throughout larger community

One possible solution
  • Following is example of one possible solution
  • There may be others- this is not intended to be
    definitive or exclusive
  • Work with a few universities NRENs on a small
    number of pilots where interested students can
    lease or control dedicated fiber/copper to
    university colo point
  • They can directly peer with other students in the
    dormitory across a white light switch or user
    controlled VLAN switch and/or
  • Connect to service providers of their and/or
    setup point to point user controlled VLANs to
    other students across NLR, CAnet 4, GLORIAD,
    GLIF, SURFnet, i2Cat, KREOnet, etc
  • Primary application would be collaborative video
    such as Inuk, Joost, YouTube and/or CineGrid

Advantages for student
  • One time very small cost for UNLIMITED bandwidth
    forever to university colo
  • Cross connect to service provider of their choice
    or research network(s)
  • NO or very low monthly Internet service fees for
    connection to content providers or connection
    across research networks
  • Participate in new global collaborative models
    such as Inuk,, MySpace, Joost, Inuk
    or CineGrid
  • Direct connection to content and application
  • Student installs transceiver or simple media hub
    at their computer
  • Media hub with CWDM for about 200 which includes
    laser, Gbe transceiver etc

Inuk Networks
  • Offering free triple play to university
    dormitories in the UK
  • Free cable TV, telephony
  • Over the air channels from around the world
  • Also deliver university content to cable systems
    and other institutions around the world
  • Make money by selling eyeballs
  • Joost has same strategy
