The Future of the Internet

September 3, 2009

After 35 years of use, the Internet is reaching its design limits. The next 35 years of networking require a new architecture that can maintain the accepted services such as the Web as well as innovative new services that haven’t yet been deployed. Increased federal funding for network and broadband telecommunications research, including sectoral research consortia, small-scale research teams and large-scale testbeds will be instrumental in bringing about the new Internet architecture.
