Internetworking is completely different from the B-ISDN:

•Rather than a single cell based circuit switched network - the focus is
on interconnecting networks via a common network layer protocol
•Lots of products and lots of vendors selling these products

•note: there is significant competition with a very fast development cycle

•The technology is “good enough” vs. trying to be an improved version
of ISDN (think of examples from Clayton Christianson’s The Innovator’s
Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail [32])
•It exploits the very rapid advances at the edge of the network - which
the users pay for!
•Encourages both cooperation by different network operators and
competition between different network operators!

⇒ network connectivity as a commodity using commodity products to deliver a
wide range of services
