The Internet was initially designed to enable information exchange
between research institutes using the best-effort packet transport
paradigm. Since then, more and more areas of our daily live are reached
by the Internet including business critical areas, causes through its big
success, fast acceptance and emerged possibilities. A side effect of the
underlying best-effort transport principle is that for instance Qualityof-
Service and security sensitive services are difficult to realize. As a
consequence one focus of Future Internet (FI) research is on re-design of
the current Internet architecure. The so-called clean slate approach addressed
today’s demands and requirements that could not be solved by
the current Internet architecture. In this paper we present a clean slate
cross-layer architecture approach in which functionalities at the network
layer are supported by the service layer, in order to optimize underlying
connections. In the second practical part we validate the presented
architecture based on a prototype implementation. An evaluation section
discusses measurements done with the prototype. An outlook on
our future work concludes the paper.
