September Newsletter

We are glad to share that the IPNSIG Architecture and Governance Working Group (AWG) held a workshop on Routing in Delay and Disruption Tolerant Networking over four days, from August 22 to 25, 2022. The goal of the workshop was to look at the various routing approaches and to produce a recommendation toward realizing a common interplanetary network architecture.

During the workshop, the group looked into the following routing approaches:

As a result, AWG has produced the following recommendation:

 

The IPNSIG, as an organization under the Internet Society, advocates the concept of establishing a common, interoperable, autonomous and scalable routing framework within the Solar System Internet. We believe this is crucial to achieving a resilient and sustainable communication environment in space.  

We express our willingness to facilitate and expect interested communities to further pursue the refinement and advancement of a technical solution in support of this goal.

We underline four important aspects for the future of Routing in Solar System Internet:

  • Autonomy

    • The overall goal is to populate forwarding tables or routing tables (where appropriate) without human intervention and depart from the Earth-centric management scheme

  • Commonality

    • To enable Autonomy we need a common and standardized way of the following:

      • The population of a Forwarding and (where routes are computed) Routing Table

      • Function enabling the bundle protocol agent to access a forwarding table API that answers the question: “where should I send this bundle and with what CLA/address?”, similar to ARP lookup Interoperability
      • Define a common to every Node set of functions
  • Interoperability

    • Inter-regional routing should be based on a common standard

    • Intra-regional routing could be heterogeneous, adopting methods that suit the needs of a specific environment or a mission
    • Inter- and Intra-region routing should be interoperable
  • Scalability
    • Architecture needs to be structured in some way (Hierarchy)

    • Node IDs, Addressing Schemes, and segmenting concepts need to be further explored to accommodate the scale of the SSI

 You can find the summary report here and our recommendations report here.

Webinar coming soon: DTN Research Summary

IPNSIG Presents: Recent Firsts in DTN Research—a webinar presentation by Dr. Lara Suzuki (Google)

Date: December 10, 2021

Time: 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST

Admission is free, but you must register for the event. An announcement will be going up soon on ipnsig.org with a link to the registration site.

Vint Cerf will introduce Dr. Suzuki and moderate a short question and answer session following the presentation.

IPNSIG member Dr. Lara Suzuki has been working on a number of firsts in Delay & Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN). These include:

  • First time connecting multiple clouds via DTN
  • First time connecting clouds and loT devices and microcontrollers using multiple protocol implementations (MOTT, uD3TN, ION)
  • First time streaming video via multicasting over DTN
  • First time using DTN with Kubernetes Engine Service
  • First time performing federated queries over DTN on multiple clouds

Lara will be discussing the research above and also providing 14 Functioning Demos in a multi-cloud and multi-protocol environment. These demos include examples of AI and Machine Learning on multiple distributions of DTN.

In addition to obvious applications to space exploration, this work will also be foundational in scaling terrestrial implementations of DTN networks that will allow realistic testing of network management and network security functions.

Speaker and moderator bios will be published soon on ipnsig.org.
