The World-Wide-Web was initially designed to enable Information exchange between research institutes using the Internet Protocol based transport network. Since then, more and more areas of our daily live are reached by the evolving Internet including business critical areas, causes through its big success, fast acceptance and emerged possibilities. However, today’s best-effort Internet still lacks wide-area support for End-to-End Quality-of-Service and security sensitive services. Future Internet (FI) related research targets at a re-designs of the current Internet while addressing today’s requirements. In this paper we present a clean-slate cross-layer FI architecture approach. In order to optimize the underlying network for services we focus on a framework able to provide service required functionalities at the network layer on demand. We validate the presented architecture based on a prototype implementation. An evaluation section discusses measurements done with the prototype and an outlook on our future work concludes the paper.
