The REA project will analyze and compare proposals made by the Routing Research Group , part of the Internet Research Task Force. These proposals suggest new methods of dealing with the
scalability issues the internet core sffers from today. They suggest
ways of providing edge net multi homing, address indirection
(identifier/locator split), name space splits (core and edge
addressing) using varying solutions. The project also include an
implementation and review of components common to the proposals.
The design goals of the Routing Research Group include
- Improve Routing Scalability
- Support scalable traffic engineering
- Support multi homing
- Support mobility
The REA project is a cooperation between SICS and Ericsson Nomadic lab.
