Priority-based content processing with Q-routing in information-centric networking (ICN)

Priority-based content processing with Q-routing in information-centric networking (ICN) With exponential increase in the number of users and available data, service providers are facing hard times to satisfy and improve end user experience. Researchers have come up with the idea of exploiting increasing number of routers in a network, and it leads to the development of information-centric networking (ICN). Efficient usage of the in-network caches and content forwarding methodology are the key issues in an ICN architecture. ICN reduces average hop count and correspondingly average content download delay because the intra-domain routers in ICN have storage capacity and they can act as temporary content provider. In this paper, we address the content management issue in a cache with finite storage capability and propose an efficient content management policy that changes a router to a self-sustained cache. We propose a novel methodology to process content packets in the buffer of a cache and correspondingly reduce the propagation delay through a cache. We simulate our proposed algorithm over real-life network environment and evaluate the performance of different user experience metrics, e.g. average latency, throughput, goodput, and link load. Simulation results suggest that our proposed model outperforms the existing state-of-the-art on-path caching strategies. Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals
