ZusammenfassungThe history of research and development for the Internet has alternated between time periods of grand new visions and time periods concerned with integrating new advances in information and communication technology. As we entered the 21st century, many voices called for a redesign of the Internet architecture. The Internet was said to be ossified in the sense that its ability to incorporate major upgrades had been largely lost. Viewed as being in a state beyond repair, the era saw calls for and many efforts on a clean-slate design of the Internet architecture. A decade on – and with the Internet architecture largely unchanged – the appetite for big solutions has largely waned, and been replaced by efforts that seek to adapt networks and distributed systems to challenges posed by the advent of the Internet-of-Things, network softwarization, mission-critical applications, and artificial intelligence: IoT. The Internet-of-Things (IoT) will boost the number of Internet nodes well beyond the billions, which will lead to new traffic patterns (e.g., high-frequency low-volume) and resource requirements. SDN++. Softwarization is ‘conquering’ the net. Technologies such as software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) will continue to deliver increased flexibility for providing network services. As this softwarization significantly increases the complexity of today’s networks, new security problems will emerge. MCA. Mission-critical applications (MCA), which used to be confined to dedicated real-time systems and networks, such as time-sensitive networks (TSN), industrial Ethernet, and so on, are migrating to public and wide area networks. This impacts technologies and protocols, such as ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC) in 5G networks. Moreover, delay requirements of real-time applications create a need to move cloud functionality closer to the action scene, e.g., via fog and edge computing. AI. The resurgence of artificial intelligence (AI), evoked by stunning successes of machine learning, boosts the need for computing resources that cannot be embedded in IoT devices and energy-constrained handhelds like smartphones. This and the need for joint processing requires offloading approaches that shuffle data from the action scene to backend resources. The objective of this TOIT special issue was to bring together contributions to the above four and additional challenges and shed light on their inter-dependencies.
