Networks have become multipath: mobile devices have multiple radio interfaces, datacenters have redundant paths and multihoming is the norm for big server farms. Meanwhile , TCP is still only single-path. Is it possible to extend TCP to enable it to support multiple paths for current applications on today's Inter-net? The answer is positive. We carefully(More)
—Successful deployment of new network protocols on the Future Internet is not a trivial task. Deployable protocol design is necessary but not sufficient condition for protocol's success, unless it takes all stakeholders involved in the deployment process into account. This paper investigates the challenges of deploying a new transport protocol on the(More)
Over the past decades, the fundamental principles of the Internet architecture have not significantly changed. However, Internet evolution and its effects on participants' interests have triggered the need for redefining these design principles. " Design for Tussle " is an aspiration for future network designs , which enables the involved stakeholders to(More)
Multipath TCP (MPTCP) is a resource pooling mechanism which splits data across multiple subflows (paths) and ensures reliable data delivery. Although Multipath TCP is a relatively small technical change to the TCP protocol providing improved resilience, throughput and session continuity, it will have considerable impact on the value networks and business(More)
During the last decade the Internet has faced an architectural stagnation due to lack of wide scale adoption of new communication protocols. A significant reason for non-adoption is that the conflicting interests of networked stakeholders involved in the diffusion process are not understood or taken into account during the protocol development. This paper(More)
In Multi Route Configurations (MRC) protocol when failure is detected, it forwards the packets over preconfigured alternative next-hops and immediately recovers from single or multiple failures. Multipath routing provides multipath communication and improves network transmission reliability. However, when there is a huge amount of traffic in the network(More)
This document presents a proposal for the architecture of the Future Internet. The architecture has been developed by the Trilogy collaborative research project, whose focus is the development of the current Internet, and in particular its network and transport layers. The key challenges identified include scaling and flexibility in the global routing(More)
