The new year approaches and we are trying to make predictions of what happens in 2017. Networks have also its own predictions describing trends, investments and migrations.

Did you ponder of getting rid of the Ethernet header from the frame? This idea came to my mind couple of years ago. Weird, isn’t it? On the other side in the WAN there are many point to point connections. If you send packets through p2p links you can receive them on a far end only. No redirections.

It could be possible. Let’s have a look on pros and cons.

If you find those concepts somewhere else already please let me know. Creation leads also to duplication. But better try than do nothing.
