POINT: iP Over IcN - the betTer ip


The goal of POINT is to develop technology, innovations, and business value chains for commercially viable IP-over-ICN deployment, based on the hypothesis that many current IP-based applications can run ‘better’ on an ICN-based network than on current IP networks. To achieve this, we will first define a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to specify what exactly 'better' means. Then, we will specify a communication platform based on the ICN prototype developed in FP7 PURSUIT and develop a set of abstractions to enable current IP, TCP, HTTP and CoAP based applications to run on our platform, complemented by new resource coordination mechanisms to improve the performance of the network.
