Traffic Engineering for Information-Centric Networks

Information-Centric Networking (ICN) proposes a networking architecture that uses methodologies such as publish subscribe to achieve a data-oriented approach as opposed to a destination based approach found in the current Internet. This new architecture brings both new problems to be solved and also natural solutions to existing problems. This paper investigates an intra-domain Traffic Engineering (TE) problem for an Information-Centric Networking (ICN) architecture where a form of source routing is used as the forwarding mechanism. The TE goal is to maximise the residual capacity in the network so that the load is spread evenly.
