OFCOM Technology Discovery Programme on Future Internet 2020

30 October 2020

I gave a presentation entitled Evolving the Internet to the OFCOM Technology Discovery Programme on the Future Internet.

In the talk, I discussed some recent and ongoing activities in the IETF and IRTF, and highlighted tensions between the different directions in which work is developing. In particular, I noted differences in the approach to protocol development between the work driven by network operators and that supported primarily by large-scale application providers, and considered some implications of this for the evolution of the Internet.
