Researchers from the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute discuss the implementation details of a virtual Internet (VI) architecture in this March 2003 technical paper. Similar in concept to virtual memory, "VI's manage concurrent sharing of resources, provide protection, and present an abstraction of the underlying service." Networking specialists could benefit from such a system, since dealing with low-level operations would be much more transparent. The paper outlines the motivation for VI research and presents technical details necessary to implement a VI.
