The 2005 IEEE International Conference on e-Technology, e-Commerce and e-Service (EEE-05)

Minimalistic Internetworking - Meeting the Needs of Tomorrow

Gong Li

PhD, GM of Sun China ERI


The internet conceptually includes everything with a digital heartbeat, and increasingly anything that matters in our lives does have a digital heartbeat, from office equipments, to everyday electronics, to medical devices, to RFID tags, and much beyond. As millions of such devices of a huge variety pour into the world, it is desirable to keep them interconnected, because connectedness is the primary value of the Internet. However, two major factors work against this already daunting challenge -- our technology legacy that pushes things into more complex forms and the business tendancy to fragment the Internet. This talk borrows ideas of how the human world stays connected, draws from past experience in designing P2P networks, and outlines a small number of basic components that would be sufficient to form a minimalistic network that can connect everything yet maintain its simplicity in the face of continued technology innovation.
