    The current Internet architecture curls around an original conversational model developed in the 1970's. New solutions were for a long-time built on that framework. However, the current architecture is not able to meet optimally challenges posed by new access technologies, applications and services any more. In this paper, the purpose is to bring a new clarity to the architectural issues of the Future Internet by abstract reasoning. The paper explains the importance of architecture and introduce an architecture gap (problems and bottlenecks) in the current Internet as well as some essential requirements for a new architecture. The choice of requirements set by emerging and new challenges may be the most critical issue determining the new architecture. Therefore, the development of the new architecture should be guided by an understanding of the requirements. On the basis of requirement analysis we also propose a new architecture framework, which aim is to provide greater functionality, lower costs and increased adaptability for different types of communication for the Future Internet.
