Until now, network architectures have relied on 40-year-old designs that have been stretched to their limits . . . they aren’t wrong, but struggle to dynamically assign network resources, guarantee QoS, or overcome numerous security risks.
LACK OF A TRULY INNOVATIVE TOOL
If we had a tool that could assign logical names to things, manage by logical name, and control the logical associations and workflows among VPN members, without being nailed to IP addresses, we would have a perfect tool! (“Networking in the Age of Virtualization”)
COMPLEXITY AND COST
There remains a vital need to simplify and reduce the cost of configuring/managing networks, as well as the effort required to develop and maintain. RINA lowers complexity, which reduces defect opportunities and simplifies management.
