Beyond the Internet? − Innovations for future networks and services
ITU-T Kaleidoscope event, Pune, India, 13-15 Dec 2010


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 for standardization.

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.

Accepted papers are available through the IEEE Xplore. A prize fund totaling $10,000 was awarded to the three best papers as reported below:

First best paper: “A user-centric approach to QoS regulation in future networks”, presented by Eva Ibarrola (University of the Basque Country, Spain), co-authored by Fidel Liberal, Armando Ferro (University of the Basque Country, Spain); Jin Xiao (University of Waterloo, Canada).

Second best paper: “How can an ISP merge with a CDN?”, presented by Kideok Cho (Seoul National University, Korea), co-authored by Hakyung Jung, Munyoung Lee, Diko Ko, Taekyoung Kwon, Yanghee Choi (Seoul National University, Korea).

Third best paper: “Introducing elasticity and adaptation into the optical domain toward more efficient and scalable optical transport networks”, presented by Masahiko Jinno (NTT, Japan), co-authored by Yoshiaki Sone, Osamu Ishida, Takuya Ohara, Akira Hirano, Masahito Tomizawa (NTT, Japan).
