The approach of the projects in this cluster is based around the idea that the development of future Internet technologies should not proceed in isolation of the way networks are used. The projects start from the point of view of the demanding network problems posed by distributed media applications and content delivery systems. The cluster is therefore in a privileged position to research novel networking solutions in the context of such demanding usage drivers. The projects in the cluster have a spectrum of approaches to the networking of such applications and content, ranging from P2P overlays that make no assumptions on the underlying network through to visionary and potentially disruptive novel network architectures that are able to access, discover and route content natively. Topics of common interest that are currently under investigation include: Network architectures for supporting advanced media applications, including: • Evolutionary approaches such as overlay networks, • Interim solutions through techniques such as deep packet inspection and network virtualisation, • Visionary networking such as native content-centric networking, and, • Migration paths and roadmaps towards interim and visionary architectures. • Adaptation of content to network capabilities. • P2P applications and their interaction with underlying networks. • Distributed versus centralised media/content servers and positioning of caching functions for content • distribution systems. Proposals for new business models investigating alternative relationships between content producers, users, • service providers, ISPs and CDNs. Personalisation and enrichment of media/content according to user context. • Development of …
