IP Design Principles

Recently, I have found a very interesting article that revisited a discussion on the IP packet switching foundations versus circuit switching.

I particularly liked the article structure and agree with some points exposed by the authors. Mainly, the question whether there is an approach to guarantee non-trivial QoS levels over IP other than overprovisioning the links.

Yet, the most important aspect in the article is the attempt to uncurtain new perspectives for packet switching and circuit switching as well.

The paper is short, contains good references and it is definitely worth reading.

Is IP going to take over the world (of communications)?
