Supporting Mobility in a Publish Subscribe Internetwork Architecture
The current Internet architecture is based on End-to-End point (E2E) communication, covering the needs of the time when it was designed. The former is widely considered as the root cause of many of its limitations and inefficiencies. Add-on solutions such as NATs, CDNs or Mobile IP were introduced in order to mitigate problems, even though they tend to violate aspects of the Internet architecture. Publish/Subscribe (Pub/Sub) continuously gains popularity within the research community as a clean slate Future Internet (FI) architecture due to its inherent information-centrism that manages to decouple information from its location.
