As the seminar introduction touched the heavily investigated and debated topic of the future of the Internet, the following three papers provide an impression of different approaches and viewpoints regarding the Future Internet and its design principles. The Stanford University paper (PDF, 111 KB) presents a so-called clean-slate approach to the Future Internet, meaning a revolutionary rather than an evolutionary approach. The FIArch (Future Internet Architecture Working Group) paper (PDF, 100 KB) collects fundamental limitations of the current Internet, while the ITU-T Recommendation Y.3001 (PDF, 241 KB) outlines a collection of high-level objectives and design goals for future networks. Understand that these papers are highly selective out of many more.


The detailed topic descriptions* are made available in a single PDF file for download.
