    7474The COIN research group wants to explore the research on how to make use of new programmable data planes and distributed computing to introduce non-forwarding functions into networks and functional federation to improve network and application performance and user experience.

    76 In order to achieve this goal the methodology will include specific future-looking use cases with their outcomes, the trade-offs between the benefits from the new functionality in network and the extra cost to network devices, related research on edge computing applications that benefit from programmability and research on applications that could be moved into the network to provide added functionality. Use cases will include the collaboration between centralized and controlled environments like DCN, and the widely distributed networks characterized by edge/pervasive computing. While it is not mandatory it is hoped that later in the RGs work the combination of both approaches in a common architecture may lead to common protocols.

While it is not mandatory it is hoped that later in the RG's work the combination of both approaches in a common architecture may lead to common protocols. With it's focus on research in the overall field of computing in the network the RG will not address a specific architecture, system or protocol but will assume that for example specific solutions in COIN may have the equivalent of a transport layer to consider both network and compute resources jointly.

    7878The use cases and related research may lead to new architecture and layering design with comparison to traditional architectures in terms of complexity, performance and cost and create incentivesthe research into new abstraction of the data plane and the development of some potential new protocols. Finally the impacts of COIN on transport protocols, security and privacy in different environments, and the incentives for both the network providers to provide the capabilities and the application developers to use them will also be investigated.
