Future Internet

The Internet was designed about 40 years ago, and initially was intended as a means of communication only for a relatively small group of people in academic and research contexts. As we all know, the Internet has meanwhile experienced an enormous growth; the number of hosts and thus the number of users has grown by several orders of magnitude. At the same time, some assumptions that drove the Internet's original design are no longer true today: An increasing number of end devices is mobile and thus frequently changes its location in the topology. Not only some users, but end hosts and even entire networks
