Layer-2 technologies, in particular Ethernet, are increasingly being used to create large-scale network infrastructures capable of sustaining many independent higher-layer (e.g. IP) networks. However, Ethernet is showing its age: it scales poorly in several different aspects. In this talklet I will outline some of Ethernet’s failings, and my work to address one of these: the requirement for switches to learn and store the location of every node on the network. My modified Ethernet, named MOOSE , addresses this issue in a novel way which solves the problem more completely than previous attempts.
