Network anomalies such as packet reordering and delay spikes can result in spurious retransmissions and degrade performance of reliable transport protocols such as TCP and SCTP. Past research showed that in certain networks or paths, such anomalies were fairly common. The result was a series of proposals (Eifel, DSACK-based, F-RTO) targeted towards making a(More)
— In this paper, we describe the approaches taken in the 4WARD project to address the challenges of the network of the future. Our main hypothesis is that the Future Internet must allow for the fast creation of diverse network designs and paradigms, and must also support their coexistence at run-time. We observe that a pure evolutionary path from the(More)
One of the primary principles of Software Defined Networking (SDN) is that representing networks as a collection of simple abstractions implemented as an API - rather than as a collection of standardized and proprietary protocols and command line interfaces - will lead to networks that are easier to build and manage. Application of this principle has(More)
Extended Abstract Today's mobile and fixed communication networks have evolved over several steps to enable both people communication and content communication. Internet technologies are already embedded in modern mobile communication networks and the Internet as such has enabled new communication forms and business models not conceivable just 10 years ago.(More)
