The future Internet needs to provide enough flexibility to allow the dynamic deployment of new network protocols, support heterogeneous end-systems, provide novel communication abstractions, and exhibit inherent security and manageability. In this talk, I present an overview of various technological drivers that shape current developments in network architecture research. I will discuss how programmable routers and network virtualization provide the basis for adaptability in the network and present some of the related research problems. I will also provide an overview on ongoing research projects that aim to provide novel network architectures that may become the core of the future Internet.
