Title: Towards a Taxonomy of Inter-network Architectures
Author: Khoury, Joud; Abdallah, Chaouki
Subject: taxonomy
Abstract: Over the past decade, research on network architecture design has intensified. However, contributions to the field have mainly been idiosyncratic and architectural descriptions remain idiomatic. This state of affairs has led to the emergence of a large body of network architecture proposals with no clear indication of their compatibility points, their cross similarities, and their differences. Thus, a taxonomy of network architectures that provides a framework for better understanding, organizing, and thinking about the complex architecture design space would be a timely contribution. This paper presents a first step in that direction by attempting a classification based on the architecture's information model. The taxonomy is applied to a special network architecture highlighting its descriptive and classification powers.
