The Internet has changed the way we work and live and has contributed positively to the growth of business and industry. Nonetheless, many parts of the Internet architecture were developed 30+ years ago. In these 30 years, we have learned a lot about networking and packet switching.

Ten such problems and proposed solutions will be presented in this talkThis lecture covers the following topics:
