This report is the unmodified work-in-progress monograph written by Sandy Fraser from 2003 onwards to capture his vision for a global network architecture that would scale to levels of quality and resilience beyond that of anything existing at the time. There are multiple areas of the document that are marked as “to do” or are otherwise incomplete. We believe it to be a valuable historical record of the original research that occurred first at AT&T Labs Research and subsequently at Fraser Research, and have preserved it in its entirety in this technical report.
