ANA is a project that examines legacy-free future networking architectures, with a focus on autonomicity. The programming model used in ANA dispenses with the rigid layers of the OSI model and instead uses bricks that can be combined to build a compartment offering the functionality required by an application. Restrictions such as TCP always being layered on top of IP do not exist, with e.g., arbitrary bricks offering transport functionality being usable to communicate with other nodes in a compartment. Application functionality is divided among specialized bricks, giving a clean and non-monolithic design. We have designed a P2P-like distributed streaming system from scratch, and designed an information sharing system by adapting an existing structured P2P system for ANA. In this paper, we report our experiences on the benefits and pitfalls of application and service development for ANA, and draw some conclusions on suitable design approaches for such novel “disruptive” network architectures.
