A Lightweight Protocol for Interconnecting Heterogeneous Devices in Dynamic Environments
In the near future people will be able to move freely and still have seamless network and Internet connectivity. One implication of this new style of interaction is an increased diversity in the types of devices which will be used to maintain connectivity. While many of the Internet protocols have proven successful and long-lived in traditional networks, we believe they will be inappropriate for use in communicating among limited-capability devices. In this paper, we introduce a new network layer protocol for intra-network communication in clouds containing devices with varying processing and communication capabilities. Our proposed protocol, called Pseudo-IP, is designed to operate among devices in the farthest branches/leaves of an intranet while providing inter-network connectivity with other clouds and with the existing IP-based Internet infrastructure. PseudoIP will accommodate a wide range of devices with varying power, processing, and communication capabilities, while supportin...
