Realizing ICN as a Network Slice for Mobile Data Distribution
Network slicing in 5G allows the potential introduction of new network architectures such as Information-centric Networks (ICN) as a slice, managed over a shared pool of compute, storage and bandwidth resource. Services over an ICN slice can benefit from many architectural features such as Name Based Networking, Security, Multicasting, Multi-homing, Mobility, Caching and In-network Computing. With the current move towards Application defined or Service Centric Networking, ICN offers very rich naming abstractions common to both the application and the network itself, allowing efficient delivery of services while offering significant bandwidth efficiency, low latency service delivery and even support Ad hoc communication catering to vehicular scenarios.
