With the ever-increasing growth of media-rich applications from traditional video to virtual meeting/classrooms to tactile internet, the future networking paradigm will go away from a networking concept based on single-technology, single-flow, single-route model of information transfer, pushing the issues of usage prediction, integrated resource utilization and parallelism to all layers of protocol stack. Recent successful approaches, such as multi-homing, overlay networking, and distributed storage, deviate from this paradigm by using intelligent control to take advantage of redundancy and path diversity that already exists in the modern networks to provide a better experience to end-users.
Rather than treating the heterogeneous nature of the network and diversity of access technologies as an afterthought, this proposal considers an integrated approach that systematically takes advantage of various hybrid networking techniques to improve upon the network experience in general, and in particular upon latency in media-rich applications. These techniques include content caching, multicasting, multi-homing, multi-user coding, as well as braiding satellite+wifi+cellular technologies.
