Content-centric networks promise to address content networking issues in a better way than today's host-based networking architecture. But content-centric networking does not inherently address the issue of services, particularly service scalability and mobility. The authors present their work on CCNxServ, a system that allows for dynamic service deployment and scalability in a Content-Centric Networking implementation (CCNx) through an intuitive use of the content naming scheme. It thus extends the concept of content-centric networking towards services.
