PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- PARC, a Xerox company, today launched the Emerging Network Consortium (ENC), an initiative formed to advance the development of the next-generation Internet based on Content-Centric Networking (CCN). ENC brings together industries in different sectors to innovate, collaborate, and exchange experiences based on CCN implementations across various industries. Founding members include Alcatel-Lucent, BT, France Telecom-Orange, Huawei, MACH, Panasonic, and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. The formation of the ENC will pave the way for an entire industry to create and innovate networking products, services, and businesses.
PARC is continuing its notable legacy in networking with its work on CCN. Designed to match the way the network already works, CCN addresses many of the key problems facing the Internet today, including seamless content distribution, mobility, security, and scalability. PARC is well known for inventing networking technologies, going back to Ethernet, PUP, and XNS in the early days through significant contributions to IPv6 and Internet multicast.
"The Internet has gone from a communications channel to a media distribution channel, which has provided new and exciting opportunities," said Stephen Hoover, CEO, PARC. "The development of CCN will improve the Internet experience as people, equipped with several types of devices from smart phones to PCs to tablets, continue to share more and more content like videos, music, and photos. From business executives wanting to market products and services, to grandparents wanting to see the video of their grandkids playing soccer, CCN will improve these experiences. The formation of the ENC has the potential to help create significant, new opportunities."
"While the current Internet architecture has served as the foundation of most modern technology ecosystems today, there is huge opportunity to rethink approaches and technology to develop a next generation of the Internet that moves from basic transport to full awareness of the content, services, and higher level contextual elements that are today the key enablers for tomorrow's technical ecosystems," said John Roese, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Huawei North American R&D and Enterprise Global Competency Center. "This is both disruptive thinking and entirely necessary work to assure that the platform of our industry and global economy is always moving forward at pace with the emerging business models and user demands. Huawei is excited to be part of this leading work just as we are excited to have contributed to the scaling of the existing mobile and fixed line Internet of today."
PARC's CCN research team is headed by research fellow Van Jacobson, one of the primary contributors to the technological foundations of today's Internet. Jacobson's algorithms for the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) helped solve the problem of congestion and are used in more than 90 percent of Internet hosts today. Widely credited with enabling the Internet to expand in size and support increasing speed demands, Jacobson helped the Internet survive a major traffic surge without collapsing.
"The Internet was designed to allow conversations between computers," Jacobson said. "Today, however, we don't want our TVs, tablets and phones to chat -- we want them to deliver content in the way of movies, music, books, and magazines. The Internet has been able to handle this shift from conversation to content but it hasn't been easy. Every day millions of dollars of CAPEX and OPEX are invested in tricking it into operating far outside its design parameters. Internet-based content consumption is reaching a scale where tricks no longer work."
Jacobson continued, "The purpose of the ENC is to help people from various industries use CCN, an evolved Internet architecture that efficiently handles both communication and distribution, to transform the Internet into something that facilitates, rather than fights, new services."
There is much discussion and coverage regarding the Internet slowing down and becoming sluggish, congested, and possibly even out of date. The Internet was originally designed as an end-to-end "communications network," but has become a "distribution network" for multimedia sharing. The architecture leads to many problems as we try to adapt an infrastructure optimized for point-to-point communication to handle the exponential flood of digital media. CCN enables people to ask for content by name (rather than arbitrary address), finding it from the nearest location (rather than source server only), and ensuring greater security (by securing the actual content, not the pipes carrying it). For more information, visit www.parc.com/ccn.
CCN has gained significant momentum, including:
- An open source code CCNx release to enable network research experimentation and to establish a foundation of open core protocols for content networking
- Mobile: Released version of CCNx code for Android
- Industry: commercial, customer-facing projects with major companies
- Government: Multi-million dollar funding by the National Science Foundation's Future Internet Architecture program with a team comprising leading US universities
- An active open source community, with ongoing projects around the world, which held its first meeting at PARC in 2011
ENC is an open industry consortium of industry players that can include ISPs, consumer electronic, content providers, OEMs (from telecommunications, enterprise, healthcare, and defense sectors), Internet services and applications, hardware and chipset manufacturers, and venture capitalists collaborating to advance CCN and its applications to all member organizations. Hoping to attract additional members, ENC seeks to unite global industry efforts, foster discussion on standardization, and develop coherent vision for accelerated adoption of CCN for the benefit of member organizations. The first ENC Annual Members Meeting will be held at PARC on April 23-25. A one-day Executive Summit will be held in October, targeting strategic discussions between member representatives.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
