报告题目：Joint Dynamic Forwarding and Caching in Named Data Networks
报告专家：Ying Cui （SJTU）
Abstract--- Emerging information-centric networking architectures seek to optimally utilize both bandwidth and storage for efficient content distribution. This highlights the need for joint design of traffic engineering and caching strategies, in order to optimize network performance in view of both current traffic loads and future traffic demands. In this talk, I will present a systematic framework for joint dynamic interest request forwarding and dynamic cache placement and eviction, within the context of the Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture. The framework employs a virtual control plane, which operates on the user demand rate for data objects in the network, and an actual plane, which handles Interest Packets and Data Packets. Then, I will present distributed algorithms within the virtual plane to achieve network load balancing through dynamic forwarding and caching, thereby maximizing the user demand rate that the NDN network can satisfy. Finally, I will show numerical experiments within a number of network settings to demonstrate the superior performance of the resulting algorithms for the actual plane in terms of low user delay.
