Beyond the Internet? - Innovations for future networks and services - is the
third in a series of peer-reviewed academic conferences that aims at increasing
the dialogue between experts working on the standardization of information and
communication technologies (ICTs) and academia. By viewing technologies through
a “Kaleidoscope”, these forward looking events also seek to identify new topics
Thus far, the Internet has proven to be robust and flexible and its continuous
evolution has seen growth from a small experiment into a giant collaborative
network capable of meeting the demands of more than one billion users. The rise
of mobile access and its integration with optical transport networks present new
challenges. Some experts question whether the current underlying architecture is
sufficiently robust to address future demands or if a “clean slate” approach is
needed to develop a really innovative Internet of the future.
Kaleidoscope 2010 highlighted multidisciplinary aspects of future Information
and Communication Technologies (ICTs) including future services and applications
demand as well as social and economic impacts. The focus was on innovative
technologies that could challenge the fundamental networking
design principles of the Internet.
