"Tracking the Internet into the 21st Century"

(Gemeinsames Kolloquium der TU-Kaiserslautern und der Universität des Saarlandes)


In this talk, Vinton G. Cerf will try to cover the current status of the Internet, some of the technology changes that are driving its evolution and some of the policy issues that have to be dealt with. These include IPv6, mobility, increasing capacity in the core and the edges, broadband alternatives, competition, security, authentication, among many others.

A number of new applications relevant to business and research will be suggested. Then we will turn to the device-driven Internet that includes sensor networks, control systems, Internet-enabled appliances and so on.

Finally, a report will be given on the status of the interplanetary extension of the Internet now underway at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
