Content Centric Networking represents a paradigm shift in the evolution and definition of modern network protocols. Many research efforts have been made with the purpose of proving the feasibility and the scalability of this proposal. Our main contribution is to provide an analysis of the Pending Interest Table memory requirements in real deployment(More)
— Because of the constant reduction of available public network addresses and the necessity to secure networks, devices like Network Address Translators and firewalls have become quite common. Being designed around the client server paradigm, they break connectivity when protocols based on different paradigms are used (e.g., VoIP or P2P applications).(More)
—Current Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file sharing systems make use of a considerable percentage of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) band-width. This paper presents the Collaborative Locality-aware Overlay SERvice (CLOSER), an architecture that aims at lessening the usage of expensive international links by exploiting traffic locality (i.e., a resource is downloaded(More)
— This paper reports on the implementation of Time-Driven Priority (TDP) scheduling on a FreeBSD platform. This work is part of a TDP prototyping and demonstration project aimed at showing the implications of TDP deployment in packet-switched networks, especially benefits for real-time applications. This paper focuses on practical aspects related to the(More)
As traffic on the Internet continues to grow exponentially, there is a real need to solve scalability and traffic engineering simultaneously — specifically, without using over-provisioning in order to accommodate streaming media traffic. One of the threats to the current operation stability of the Internet comes from UDP-based streaming media applications,(More)
Future Internet traffic will be dominated by on-demand streaming media flows, such as IPTV, 3D/HD video, gaming, virtual reality, and many more. Consequently, future network architectures will need to offer predictable performances to such applications. In order to achieve scalable IP packet switching it is essential to minimize " stopping " of the serial(More)
—Preemptive contention resolution schemes are very effective solutions for providing service differentiation in optical burst switching networks. However, they cannot be applied together with the just-in-time signaling protocol because of the great loss in efficiency in terms of wavelength utilization and maximum achieved throughput that results when the(More)
