Prospects for Internet technology

  title={Prospects for Internet technology},
  author={B. Carpenter and J. Crowcroft},
  journal={Distributed Syst. Eng.},
This paper surveys the current developments in Internet technology, with a particular emphasis on performance, and the growing need for various guarantees of quality of service. It discusses hardware technologies for increased bandwidth, mechanisms for requesting and providing specific qualities of service, and various scaling issues. Finally it discusses mechanisms needed for (but not the economics of) the Internet in the mass market. To this end, we survey changes in the areas of addressing… Expand

Quality-of-Service Routing for Supporting Multimedia Applications
This paper first examines the basic problem of QoS routing, namely, finding a path that satisfies multiple constraints, and its implications on routing metric selection, and presents three path computation algorithms for source routing and for hop-by-hop routing. Expand
IP Mobility Support
This document specifies protocol enhancements that allow transparent routing of IP datagrams to mobile nodes in the Internet. Each mobile node is always identified by its home address, regardless ofExpand
