Abstract

The recent advances on networking technologies (both at the access and the core realms) together with the ever-increasing requirements of the end-users and their applications/services call for an open approach, yet with a clear migration strategy, so as to avoid the well-known shortcomings and limitations of clean-slate approaches. These requirements have streamlined the design of a novel (yet not revolutionary) architecture framework based on the identification of functional entities and their interfaces. The most distinguishing feature is its flexibility, allowing its adaptation to already existing protocols/technologies/algorithms as well as to novel solutions.
