Mobility management scheme based on Software Defined Controller for Content-Centric Networking
Content-Centric Networking (CCN) attracts much attention in the ongoing research area of the future Internet. CCN treats content as the first class entity of the network and attempts at addressing challenges in content distribution scalability, mobility and security. Mobile consumers of content may be well served in CCN due to the receiver-driven paradigm. Mobile sources of content, however, face a number of intractable problems, since content names are used both for routing of Interests and content identifying. In this paper, we borrow the idea of data and control plane separation and locator/identifier separation to design a source mobility management scheme in CCN. We design the basic architecture, and describe the handoff processes for the intra-domain movement and inter-domain movement. Finally, numerical results are presented.
