Future Internet Is by Ethernet

  title={Future Internet Is by Ethernet},
  author={Marko Luoma and Raimo Kantola and Jukka Manner},
This is a position paper describing an approach to the creation of the Future Internet. We argue that the new architecture must respond to two key challenges: (1) increase trust among Internet stakeholders and (2) provide cost efficient scaling of the network to new levels of capacity, number of users and applications. We argue that the solution is to redesign the Internet by gradually replacing IP with a carrier grade transport system. In practice such a packet transport system can be created… 

Implementing NAT traversal with Private Realm Gateway

The paper shows that the PRGW is most applicable for connecting mobile and other wireless hosts to the Internet.

Traversal of the customer edge with NAT-unfriendly protocols

The proposed approach significantly cuts the session establishment delays typical in SIP and the implementation of Application Layer Gateways for these two protocols is reported and guidelines for processing other protocols are provided.



Transport for Carrier Grade Internet

The paper shows how the idea of recursive routing can be engineered to work with different forwarding protocols and how this idea can be implemented by leveraging the Ethernet technology.

Control Plane for Carrier-Grade Ethernet Network

The control plane is developed as a part of a more complete system, which includes forwarding plane realized with network processors and a management plane for provisioning both intra- domain services, and inter-domain services between multiple domains.

Minimizing ARP Broadcasting in TRILL

A solution and a proof-of-concept implementation on how to eliminate one of the largest sources of broadcast traffic in an Ethernet network, the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) requests, and a solution that proposes building a distributed hash table based ARP information store, across the whole Ethernet network.

This paper proposes the replace NATs with a more comprehensive concept the authors call Customer Edge Switching (CES), which assumes connection state on the trust boundary between the user and the core networks.
