The objective of this presentation is to introduce the new paradigm that will be used from 2020: the “Plug &Network” concept. This concept allows to derive new network architectures ranging from a completely centralized architecture to a fully distributed solution. We will examine the pros and cons of these different architectures to try to imagine architectures that should be deployed in the 2020s.
