Distributed Internet

An Internet of intelligence requires new architectures and services that could interconnect people, objects and nature in more efficient and dynamic ways than the current Internet.

We also need new systems and protocols which can transform information into new knowledge allowing the management of it by creating intelligent environments. Users can be empowered to design, reconfigure and manage the networks based in their own interests and needs.

i2CAT is focused on exploring and defining new ways to manage the Future Internet networks, enabling new functionalities and business models by means of integrating technologies like Cloud, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization, and developing new pioneer Internet architectures based on new paradigms beyond TCP/IP.
