  MAP-Me : Managing Anchorless Mobility in Content Centric Networking
                       draft-irtf-icnrg-mapme-01

Abstract

   Consumer mobility is supported in ICN by design, in virtue of its
   connectionless pull-based communication model; producer mobility
   through is not natively supported.  This document describes MAP-Me,
   an anchor-less solution to manage micro-mobility of content producers
   in the CCN (Content Centric Networking) and NDN (Named Data
   Networking) architectures, with support for latency-sensitive
   applications.  MAP-Me consists in the combination of two data plane
   protocols, triggered by the producer movements, and leveraging ICN
   named-based data plane.  The main protocol consists in a lightweight
   FIB update process, complemented by a mechanism of local notification
   and scoped discovery suitable for low latency applications and fast
   mobility.
