Congestion Control and Network Management in Future Internet
Future Internet research programs try to ignore and overcome the barriers of incremental development and encourage clean slate designs, propose new visions, architectures and paradigms for the coming 10-20 years. Off late results in congestion control research has shown that networks operating without explicit congestion control (like TCP) may survive without congestion collapse if appropriately designed in network resources and if end systems apply appropriate erasure coding schemes. The exponential growth of the Internet makes it virtually impossible to manage the network with traditional centralized approaches (like the manager-agent one); hence research results of complex networks are expected to spread over the Internet with its autonomic behaviors. This paper gives overview and outlook of some interesting research areas connected to the future Internet research.
