Towards Future Internet Architecture through Named Data Networking

Speaker:  Rasheed Hussain – Innopolis, Russian Federation
Topic(s):  Networks and Communications


Over the last couple of decades, the use of Internet has changed its course from people-oriented to business-oriented and from connection-oriented to content-oriented. A latest projection of Internet usage suggests that video content will claim about 80% of the total Internet traffic by 2019. It goes without saying that content is not only video, but there is plethora of different content types used in various domains such as healthcare, entertainment, business, sports, education, press, shopping, and so on. The surge in content over Internet has created a disparity between the current internet architecture and the unique requirements for handling content over the Internet in the future. Furthermore, the current TCP/IP-based Internet architecture does not, in its entirety, suit the diversified applications available today. The historical and traditional issues (such as mobility, link failure, congestion, scalability, routing overhead, and security, to name a few) with TCP/IP architecture are still lingering around and unfortunately the same traditional ‘after-thought’ and ‘patch-based’ solutions in current TCP/IP-based networking will not work for content-oriented networks. Therefore, there is a strong tendency towards content-driven network architecture for future Internet. To this end, content-centric network (CCN) has the answers to, at least in part, the afore-mentioned problems where data is treated as a first-class citizen rather than the source of the data and the path taken by the data while traveling through the network. Named Data Networking (NDN) is one of the implementations of CCN and has got ample attention from both research and academia. To date, many applications have been designed and developed through NDN in different domains. 

In this talk, the rationale for, and transition from traditional TCP/IP to NDN will be discussed. From application domain standpoint, this talk will focus on wireless ad hoc networks and more precisely on vehicular networks and its different breeds. After establishing the bridge between content-centric networking and current Internet, we will also consider some technical solutions that are currently available. Precisely, content caching and cache management will be discussed in detail. The last part of the talk will focus on the current issues that need immediate attention and the future research prospects.
