People playing an online game have to be nimble to keep up with the action. To ensure the best performance, the network should be similarly agile, but the current nature of the Internet is inflexible in many ways. On Oct. 30, however, a consortium of academic researchers will demonstrate a prototype-stage technology called OpenFlow that could enable programmers to infuse the Internet infrastructure with new capabilities. At the National Science Foundation-sponsored Global Environment for...

An enormous project to redesign the Internet is slowly moving along with $12 million in donations and government funding. Researchers wanting to rethink the Internet's structure say a "clean-slate" method is the only appropriate way to fix the various challenges that have appeared since the Internet's creation in 1969. BBN Technologies Inc. is overseeing the new design of the Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) on behalf of the government.  GENI will be a network where...

By ANICK JESDANUN NEW YORK - Although it has already taken nearly four decades to get this far in building the Internet, some university researchers with the federal government's blessing want to scrap all that and start over. The idea may seem unthinkable, even absurd, but many believe a "clean slate" approach is the only way to truly address security, mobility and other challenges that have cropped up since UCLA professor Leonard Kleinrock helped supervise the first exchange of...
