Smart Collaborative Connection Management for Identifier-Based Network
End-to-end transmission is an essential pattern in current Internet. It had brought obvious conveniences and potential hazard simultaneously. New network technology provides plenty of opportunities to avoid the harmful inuences. After reviewing the identier-based network, a candidate solution of future network, we proposed a smart collaborative connection management scheme for improving the dependability. Comparing with the conventional approaches, our scheme can protect the hosts via intermediate network equipments. During transmission process, the current usage pattern will not be inuenced. Traditional unicast can be easily and smoothly enabled. The details of the scheme design are presented via four perspectives of connection identier, i.e., communication mode, generation, distribution, and deployment. Then the supporting approaches of multipath transport, service migration, network mobility, P2P distribution, and application layer multicast are carefully investigated. The results of implementation and validation illustrate that the performances of new scheme are acceptable. We expect that this paper could provide a compatible and effective solution for both current and future Internet.
