As the high speed Internet and the smart devices become prevalent, it is expected that the traffic volume of the video conferencing/broadcasting on the mobile devices is increasing explosively. One of the promising solutions for the traffic explosion problem is the Content Centric Networking (CCN), which solves the problem by focusing on the content instead of the location. Even though CCN can provide better delivery efficiency, robustness, security, and native subscriber mobility, little attention is paid to the publisher mobility problem, where the mobile devices produce the real-time traffic. In this paper, the authors propose PMC, a publisher mobility support protocol in CCN.
