Popularity-based caching in Content-Centric Networks
Talk abstract
Information-Centric Networking (ICN) is expected to be at the core of the Future Internet. Indeed, users are only interested by content and there is a need to change the traditional "host-to-host" communication paradigm of the Internet to a "user-to-content" paradigm. Content Centric Networking (CCN) has recently emerged as a promising architecture. It is based on named-data where a packet address names content and not its location. Then, the premise is to cache content on the network nodes and an important feature for CCN is therefore the cache management. In this presentation, we will discuss about the caching strategies and present our new popularity-based caching strategies designed for CCN.
