Abstract—It is well known that internet will play a key role to the infrastructure of metaverse, while different immerging virtual worlds communicate with each other. However, the common TCP/IP model is not suitable enough for metaverse networks. To this end, we explore a preliminary frame of revised TCP/IP model. At first, a new layer called metaverse layer is defined. And then, this layer is placed as the top layer, i.e., the upper of the application layer in TCP/IP model. As a result, a novel network model having the six layers is obtained. Our simulated experiments indicate the feasibility of the new model. Furthermore, we explore several potential application scenes of metaverse networks in this paper.

Index Terms—metaverse network, virtual world, TCP/IP model, metaverse layer.
