Abstract:

Networks have become the backbone of many commercial and non-commercial enterprises today. Underlying network technology has grown incrementally over the years and different technologies are deployed in different network segments. There are variousprotocols like TCP/IP, ATM, and Ethernet each with its own advantages. As the organizations are moving towards the concept of `one network', there is a critical need for a technology that can provide a network fabric that enables interoperability amongstvarious network segments with varying protocols.The objective of this proposal is to develop an innovative network technology that can provide an innovative protocol independent packet transport mechanism. The proposed technology provides an interoperable network fabric for popular protocols of today.The plans call for developing the concept in 2003 and developing the prototype product in 2004.Dunti LLC is a research and development organization located in Austin, Texas. Dunti is developing innovative networking technologies to address various problems associated with networking. This proposal will develop an innovative technology that will address the key need of providing network interoperability. Additional benefits include:1. The technology will be able to provide end-to-end connectivity across multiple network technologies.2. The technology will provide a protocol-independent network fabric.3. The technology will be able to embed the properties of each protocol into the network fabric.4. The technology will increase efficiency and reduce cost in networks.The proposed technology will be valuable in both commercial and non-commercial markets.
