The current technology of the Internet with protocols such as Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP) comes mainly from the 1970s and 1980s. Relatively new applications such as video telephony via Skype, online games, and the rapidly increasing use of mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet computers make new demands on Internet technology. Requirements, for example, for advanced security, mobility, and routing mechanisms are not adequately covered by the existing protocols. The G-Lab project has been researching this topic since 2008 with over 30 partners from industry and academic research and has built up a test network for the development and trial of new techniques, protocols, and algorithms.
