The New Network

Part of the Internet of Things book series (ITTCC)


The future network must gear up to cope with massive data growth, but also provide what is not available on the Internet today—security, reliability, mobility, and predictability. Current Internet structures have become too rigid, and overlay solutions result in complex management. Hence, the future Internet network is evolving as a complete new concept, which segregates the network layers (Infrastructure, Resources, and Application), allowing for virtualization and software-defined networks (SDN) to be applied.
