In this talk, I will focus on my efforts in performance-oriented networking for new network technologies, using network flow-based methods. On one hand, I will show how to utilize centralized network intelligence to achieve rigorous network performance guarantee for IoT applications. Concerning different application scenarios in IoT, we propose different models along with provable flow-based algorithms to achieve various performance goals. On the other hand, I will also show how to apply flow-based algorithms in distributed and dynamic networks, by proposing a fast payment routing protocol for layer-2 payment channel networks in blockchain. This distributed protocol is able to achieve guaranteed successful payment in these capacity- and delay-sensitive networks. While the proposed solutions target concrete problems in certain networks, they also have applications and extensions beyond these specific contexts.
