Information-centric networking (ICN) marks a fundamental shift in communications and networking. In contrast with the omnipresent and very successful host-centric paradigm, which is based on perpetual connectivity and the end-to-end principle, ICN changes the focal point of the network architecture from the end host to "named information" (or content, or data). In this paradigm, connectivity may well be intermittent. End-host and in-network storage can be capitalized upon transparently, as bits in the network and on storage devices have exactly the same value. Mobility and multiaccess are the norm, and anycast, multicast, and broadcast are natively supported.

            Information-Centric Networking: Baseline Scenarios


   This document aims at establishing a common understanding about a set    of scenarios that can be used as a base for the evaluation of    different information-centric networking (ICN) approaches so that    they can be tested and compared against each other while showcasing    their own advantages.  Towards this end, we review the ICN literature    and document scenarios which have been considered in previous    performance evaluation studies.  We discuss a variety of aspects that    an ICN solution can address.  This includes general aspects, such as,    network efficiency, reduced complexity, increased scalability and    reliability, mobility support, multicast and caching performance,    real-time communication efficien...
