The Internet Global Summit - A Net Odyssey - Mobility and the Internet

The 11th Annual Internet Society Conference
5-8 June 2001 - Stockholmsmässan - Stockholm, Sweden

Technology Summit: Infrastructure Technologies Thread

Chairpersons: Scott Bradner, Harvard University <>; Franck Boissiere, European Commission <>

The new millennium is probably opening a new era for the underlying infrastructure of the Internet. Not only is the transmission and switching capacity being multiplied by several orders, but also the IP technology is likely to become a key component of the converged telecommunication core systems. This thread addresses several of the key issues associated with these new challenges such as new approaches for routing, quality or service and network engineering or mastering the mix of wireless and wireline Internet.

IN1 Wed 6 16:00-17:30
Internet Dynamics and IP in 3GPP
This session includea 4 papers on various aspects of measuring the dynamics of the Internet, the effects of the dynamic nature of the Net and the impact of TCP performance on user perception. In addition there will be one paper about the use of IP protocols in 3rd generation cellular networks.
Chair: Scott Bradner, Harvard University <> [PC, SC]
Speakers: Title of Presentation
Attila Pasztor, Ericsson Hungary R&D, [S] High Precision Active Probing for Internet Measurement
Suyoung Yoon, Korea Telecom, [S] Reliable Multicast Considering the Temporal Dependence in Packet Loss)
Zsolt Kenesi, Ericsson Research, Hungaria, [S] On the Impact of TCP Protocol on End-User Perceived Traffic Self-Similarity

IN2 Thu 7 11:00-12:30
New Approaches to Internet Routing
The rapid expansion of the Internet challenges the capacity and stability of the global routing system; the number of distinct inter-AS routes (96,907 at 12/2/01) grows exponentially, convergence times increase, and route flapping and other instabilities appear more often. At the same time, the routing system is asked to take on additional roles in ISP policy enforcement, traffic engineering, and support for the emerging wireless and mobile Internet. This session presents some of the most promising new approaches to solving these problems
