T1.23, Turing Common Room, Turing, Wheatley Campus
Speaker: Steve Uhlig
With the recent deployment of data-centers across the Internet, more
and more services are delivering content from Clouds and data centers. With the
rise of various Internet exchange points (IXPs) around the world and hybrid
content distribution infrastructures, it is very difficult to have a timely
picture of the Internet ecosystem. Despite its importance, not much is known
about the current state of the Internet. In this talk, we'll provide an update
on recent and projected changes in the Internet landscape, and its consequences
on its evolution.
