The basic intention for the development of the Internet has
been the simple and inexpensive interconnection of nodes to
provide services like file download or e-mail. However, due to
its huge growth and popularity, the classical protocols – which
still constitute the basis of today’s Internet – have reached
their limits of scalability and functionality. Lots of research has
been performed in order to overcome these restrictions. On our
poster, we would like to give a survey of the challenges on Network,
Transport, Session and Application Layer, as well as an
outline of solutions which will constitute – from the current perspective
in 2007 and with regard to the standardization progress
of the IETF – the basis of the Internet in 2022.
