CoRC: Coordinated routing and caching for named data networking

Named Data Networking (NDN) uses content names as routing entries, and thus the scalability of NDN routing is of primary concern. NDN allows in-network caching as a built-in functionality; however, if network nodes make caching decisions individually, duplicate copies of the same content may exist among nearby nodes. To address these problems, we propose Coordinated Routing and Caching (CoRC) that mitigates routing scalability and enhances the efficiency of the in-network storage. CoRC aligns the routing and caching mechanisms to manage the same content namespace for better performance. We evaluate CoRC (and its variants) with Vanilla NDN in terms of the cache hit ratio, hop count, and traffic load by running software routers on Amazon EC2. To demonstrate the feasibility of CoRC, we also implement and test the processing time of CoRC forwarding in Linux machines.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

  • Wu Q.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
