Forty data communications research questions

Craig Partridge
2011 Computer communication review  
About ten years ago, Bob Lucky asked me for a list of open research questions in networking. I didn't have a ready list and reacted it would be good to have one. This essay is my (longbelated) reply.  ...  Done right, this work will give us that roadmap and may open the door to even greater energy efficiency (99.99% anyone?). Packet headers for energy efficiency?  ...  However, this early in the study of energy efficiency, I believe that having a common set of tests would be valuable.  ...
