Grand Challenges in Networks for the Next 15 Years

Slashdot points to a paper by some of the researchers responsible for the Internet, including Bob Branden of ISI and David D Clark from MIT, “who have outlined what they see as the grand challenges for internetworking and computation in the next 10-15 years (PDF). The report from the IRTF’s ‘End-to-End Research Group’ discussed the question, ‘How might the computing and communications world be materially different in 10 to 15 years’ and how do we get there? From a universal system for location, to small-area networks, to operation in time of crisis, software radio and an agenda to reduce the energy required for communications this document tries to imagine what will be like packet-switching was for the past 15 years.”
