A new ITU-T Technology Watch Report titled The Future Internet surveys the current debate on Internet architecture.
The Internet has grown from a small experiment into a collaborative network with more than one billion users. The rise of mobile access poses additional infrastructure challenges including addressing, routing and security, which might require a review of the architecture.
The report examines the design and architecture of the Internet, and contrasts different views calling for evolutionary to radical changes to the Internet. Emerging trends and features of the Internet are identified in an attempt to provide pointers for future standards work for consideration by the ITU-T membership and the broader standards community.
The Future Internet, the tenth report of the Technology Watch series, is available to download here.
