An Energy-Efficient Routing Protocol for CCN-based MANETs

The Content-Centric Network (CCN) paradigm is well suited to Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs), because MANET scenarios are data-centric in nature. CCN-based MANETs implement named-data routing, in-network caching, and receiver-driven data dissemination. However, because resources such as energy are limited, this network faces many challenges, such as reduced lifetime of the entire network. Therefore controlling energy consumption is important for effective communication in MANETs. If popular contents are transferred repeatedly in the same routing path, each node is down by short of energy. Then node carrying data packet may fail and energy imbalance occurs in entire network
