The Internet architecture has proven its worth by the vast array of applications it now supports and the wide variety of network technologies over which it currently runs. Most current Internet research involves either empirical measurement studies or incremental modifications that can be deployed without major architectural changes. Easy access to virtual testbeds could foster a renaissance in applied architectural research that extends beyond these incrementally deployable designs.

TLDR
There is a growing recognition that virtualization offers a means to break this impasse, making it possible for new network architectures to co-exist within a common infrastructure.
A survey of network virtualization
An Evolving Architecture for Network Virtualization
TLDR
The shortcoming of current network virtualization is discussed and a framework that improves current infrastructure by extending link virtualization with a new component which is called Multi-Hop Virtual Link is proposed.
Network virtualization : A way forward for accommodating multiple, heterogeneous architectures in a single infrastructure

  • Computer Science
    2010 The 12th International Conference on Advanced Communication Technology (ICACT)
  • 2010
TLDR
New challenges on network virtualization are discussed and a new way forward for accommodating the multiple, heterogeneous architectures in a single infrastructure is discussed.
Network virtualization: state of the art and research challenges
TLDR
The past and the state of the art in networkvirtualization along with the future challenges that must be addressed to realize a viable network virtualization environment are investigated.
Network Virtualization as Foundation for Enabling New Network Architectures and Applications
  • A. Nakao
  • Computer Science
    IEICE Trans. Commun.
  • 2010
TLDR
This paper states its strong belief in that the future network should adopt a form of a meta-architecture that accommodates multiple competing multiple architectures, and to identify challenges to achieving this architecture.
A virtualization-based network architecture for next generation internet
TLDR
A new virtualization-based network architecture is proposed, which achieves cognitive network management and direct network control by introducing the knowledge plane and is designed in the principle of incremental deployment, which makes the solutions for the next generation Internet more feasible in practice.
Network virtualization as enabler for cloud networking
The Internet has exponentially grown and now it is part of our everyday life. Internet services and applications rely on back-end servers that are deployed on local servers and data centers. With t
Network Virtualization: Technologies, Perspectives, and Frontiers
TLDR
A unifying definition of the term “network virtualization” is offered and existing approaches are examined to bring out this unifying perspective.
Virtual Network Embedding: A Survey
TLDR
A survey of current research in the Virtual Network Embedding (VNE) area is presented and a taxonomy of current approaches to the VNE problem is provided and opportunities for further research are discussed.

TRIAD: A Scalable Deployable NAT-based Internet Architecture
Network address translation (NAT) has become an important technology in the Internet, supporting scalable addressing, addressing autonomy, concealed endpoint identity, and transparent redirection.
A blueprint for introducing disruptive technology into the Internet
TLDR
This paper argues that a new class of geographically distributed network services is emerging, and that the most effective way to design, evaluate, and deploy these services is by using an overlay-based testbed, and suggests four design principles that are not widely supported in existing testbeds.
Steps towards a DoS-resistant internet architecture
TLDR
A series of architectural changes are presented aimed at preventing most flooding DoS attacks, and making the remaining attacks easier to defend against, to stimulate a debate on trade-offs between the flexibility needed for future Internet evolution and the need to be robust to attack.
A Virtual Internet Architecture
TLDR
Several implementations based on this architecture are discussed that explore the capabilities of VIs, including automated deployment and management, recursion for fault tolerance, geographic delivery, and support for peer-to-peer systems.
Detour: informed Internet routing and transport
TLDR
The inefficiencies in routing and transport protocols in the modern Internet are described and a prototype, called Detour, a virtual Internet is constructed, in which routers tunnel packets over the commodity Internet instead of using dedicated links.
From protocol stack to protocol heap: role-based architecture
TLDR
Non-layered approaches to the design and implementation of network protocols are investigated for greater flexibility and control with fewer feature interaction problems and a specific non-layering paradigm called role-based architecture is proposed.
Operating Systems Support for Planetary-Scale Network Services
TLDR
This paper describes how Planet-Lab realizes the goals of distributed virtualization and unbundled management, with a focus on the OS running on each node.
Internet indirection infrastructure
TLDR
A general, overlay-based Internet Indirection Infrastructure (i3) that offers a rendezvous-based communication abstraction that decouples the act of sending from the acts of receiving, and allows i3 to efficiently support a wide variety of fundamental communication services.

Middleboxes No Longer Considered Harmful
TLDR
This work proposes an extension to the Internet architecture, called the Delegation-Oriented Architecture (DOA), that not only allows, but also facilitates, the deployment of middleboxes.
