The deep integration of the Internet and the economic society has resulted in the demand for professionalized service capacity, while the existing Internet infrastructure with its corresponding technological system is still encountering a series of challenges such as intelligence, diversification, personalization, robustness, and efficiency. In this paper, we first analyze the actual foundation of innovations and specify the basic technical features of a novel network. Subsequently, we propose a full-dimension definable open architecture as the primary line, and use the reshape of baseline technologies as the starting point to discuss the core operation mechanisms of the novel network based on the reshaped baseline technologies. Briefly, we present a novel perspective to explore the possible methods for the innovations and breakthroughs of Internet technology.
