“Looking Beyond the Internet ”


The technical structure of the Internet is now starting to undergo a major transformation into its next generation, which many are calling Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI). It will leverage today's trends in software defined networking, network function virtualization, edge clouds, and so-called “5G” wireless technologies. This transformation is opening up major new opportunities for research. We will briefly discuss this transformation as well as the next steps being planned from a United States perspective.
