A variety of proposals call for a new Internet architecture focused on retrieving content by name, but it has not been clear that any of these approaches can offer the generality to support Internet applications like real-time streaming or email. The authors present a detailed description of a prototype implementation of one such application Voice over IP (VoIP) in a content-based paradigm. This serves as a good example to show how content-based networking can offer advantages for the full range of Internet applications, if the architecture has certain key properties.
