Abstract

   Content Distribution Applications (e.g., Peer-to-Peer applications)
   are widely used on the Internet and make up a large portion of the
   traffic in many networks.  One technique to improve the network
   efficiency of these applications is to introduce storage capabilities
   within the networks; this is the capability provided by a DECADE
   (DECoupled Application Data Enroute) compatible system.  This
   document presents an architecture, discusses the underlying
   principles, and identifies key functionalities required for
   introducing a DECADE-compatible in-network storage system.  In
   addition, some examples are given to illustrate these concepts.

Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].
