WHAT IS RINA?
Recursive InterNetwork Architecture
RINA is a new computer network architecture, with a back-to-basics approach, proposed as an alternative to the mainstream TCP/IP model.
The recursive structure scales indefinitely. No more router table size explosion.
With its new back-to-basics architecture approach, RINA is an immutable and common structure with a single recursive layer.
Each layer is a securable container. Firewalls, session border controllers and intrusion systems are not needed.
The overheads of routing are far lower.
You can implement QoS mechanisms within the architecture, not just ‘best effort’.
Minimal ‘necessary and sufficient’ amount of functionality needed.
