Abstract

In this paper we aim to demonstrate that the emerging paradigm of content-centric networking conceived for future Internet architectures can be also beneficial from the energy efficiency point of view. The reference scenario to prove this statement is a Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) characterized by dynamic topology and intermittent connectivity. We design CHANET, a content-centric MANET that relies on a connectionless layer built on top of legacy IEEE 802.11 networks to provide energy-efficient content-based transport functionality without relying on the TCP/IP protocol suite.
