RINA discussed in ETSI’s Next Generation Protocols ISG

ETSI, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, has launched a new Industry Specifications Group (ISG) to start work on Next-Generation Protocols (NGP) that go beyond what the current TCP/IP Protocol suite can provide. The ISG had its kick-off meeting in London during the third week of January. Amongst others, RINA was presented by PRISTINE and ARCFIRE representatives as an architectural framework that has the potential to solve the problems that this group wants to tackle. Interesting discussions and hopefully specifications and recommendations on the infocomms protocols for beyond 2020 should come out of this group, so, if you are interested, stay tuned!
