Green Information Centric Networking

Prof. Yong-Jin Park
Waseda University


Information Centric Networking (ICN) has been attracting attention as one of the promising Future Internet architectures. The recent network usage is to access information rather than point-to-point communication. Therefore, ICN primarily accesses information by using its name, instead of a location address like the current IP network. In this talk the background and technological features of ICN are described. The research activities are also introduced. As one of the ongoing research projects, GreenICN is taken up and explained, which is EU-Japan Cooperation Project of FP7. The work programs include Architecture for Green Information Delivery, Information Delivery in Disaster Areas, and Energy-efficient Mobile Video-Delivery.
