The existing Internet ecosystem is a result of decades of evolution. It has managed to scale well beyond the original aspirations. Evolution, though, highlighted a certain degree of inadequacies that is well documented. In this position paper we present the design considerations for a re-architected global networking architecture which delivers(More)
This paper describes ideas and items of work within the framework of the EU-funded 4WARD project. We present scenarios where the current host-centric approach to information storage and retrieval is ill-suited for and explain how a new networking paradigm emerges, by adopting the information-centric network architecture approach, which we call Network of(More)

Today's cellular networks make access evaluation and selection based on pre-defined rudiment policies and rules. It works in the current networking environment that is fairly homogeneous. However, it would not be feasible anymore for the heterogeneous networking environment in the future. The future wireless networking environment will consist of(More)
Battery-powered multiaccess devices, with their increased flexibility and reachability, are becoming common. Such devices would have to disassociate their radio accesses from the surrounding networks whenever they are left unused, in order to address battery lifetime limitations. In single-access networks, paging has been proven an effective method for(More)
— This paper presents an overview of the Radio Resource Management (RRM) functionalities needed for Non-Conventional and Low-Cost Networks. These types of networks are characterized by increased cooperation between different types of networks and providers and they are believed to play a fundamental role for future wireless network networking. The paper(More)
—Wide spread adoption of mobile Internet services will increase the demand for low cost high capacity wireless networks. Cooperation between different types of operators will enable increased network utilization and availability for the end-users. This will lead to more satisfied customers and potentially both more users and increased usage. The benefits of(More)
