Abstract

There have been increasing calls for a “clean slate” approach to developing a new architecture for the Internet, with research underway in many countries. The challenge is to identify the circumstances in which such a new design might be deployed. Historical precedents for significant network changes suggest that a tipping point would not easily be reached and might not be sus-tainable.
