Fishbowl Teleseminar: New Directions in Content-Aware Networking

October 31, 2013 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Aditya Akella
Associate Professor
Department of Computer Sciences
University of Wisconsin-Madison

 

Abstract:

The Internet’s protocols and hardware were designed primarily to support host-oriented communication. In recent years, a variety of architectural proposals and router vendors have argued for making networks “content-aware”, i.e., design network elements to perform content-aware processing of network traffic. In this talk, I will describe my group’s work on this topic on three different axes: (1) building robust network support for content-aware processing; (2) redesigning network applications and protocols to leverage in-network content awareness; and (3) developing principled approaches for applying content-awareness at the right level of abstraction. I will end the talk with my thoughts on interesting future directions in this space.
