Traditional networks face many challenges due to the diversity of applications, such as cloud computing, Internet of Things, and the industrial Internet. future Internet needs to address these challenges to improve network scalability, security, mobility, and quality of service. In this work, we survey the recently proposed architectures and the emerging technologies that meet these new demands. Some cases for these architectures and technologies are also presented. We propose an integrated framework called the service customized network which combines the strength of current architectures, and discuss some of the open challenges and opportunities for future Internet. We hope that this work can help readers quickly understand the problems and challenges in the current research and serves as a guide and motivation for future network research.
