Next Generation Networks: Flexible Routing and Services

The Next Generation Networks (NGN) platform provides a flexible routing solution (FLIPS) based on an Information Centric Networking (ICN) approach. The platform is a hybrid of pure ICN and IP, to leverage the best of both: re-introducing multicast, particularly for HTTP unicast scenarios, as a way to drive down bandwidth costs. It also provides support for flexible service surrogacy as an evolution from pure content replication in today’s Internet. The underlying backward compatible architecture introduces new methodologies supported by an SDN/NFV enabled network fabric designed to meet the challenging KPIs of 5G.

The Next Generation Networks platform provides:

  • Better performance through an Information Centric Networking (ICN) approach
    • Native multicast, including better privacy, mobility, and security, for higher network utilization and lower bandwidth costs
    • Latency reduction through service surrogate capability and direct path mobility
    • Increased resilience through flexible routing at runtime
  • New service possibilities for operators through dynamic web servers utilizing in-network NFV-based computing capabilities
  • Exploits developments in software-based networks and creates an evolution path along existing system

  • FLIPS

    The innovative ICN approach for operator networks

  • Flexible Routing Solution
