Recursive Internetwork Architecture – Introduction

People need to be able to communicate together. They also need to be able to control the way they are allowed to communicate together, rather than being having to use a specific technology with the naming controlled by other people.

This is where the recursive internetwork architecture comes in. Rather than having a central authority on how things are named, numbered and messages moved around, Recursive Internetwork Architecture (RINA) allows a bunch of networks to come together and each control their own patches how they would like, but still be able communicate.

More on this later.
