Energy Efficiency Issues in Information-Centric Networking
In this paper, the authors address energy efficiency issues of Information Centric Networking (ICN) architectures. In the proposed framework, they investigate the impact of ICN architectures on energy consumption of networking hardware devices and compare them with the energy consumption of other content dissemination methods. In particular, they investigate the consequences of caching in ICN from the energy efficiency perspective, taking into account the energy consumption of different hardware components in the ICN architectures. Based on the results of the analysis, they address the practical issues regarding the possible deployment and evolution of ICNs from an energy-efficiency perspective.
