Mobile context-Adaptive CAching for COntent-centric networking

Acronym Macaco

Abstract Finding new ways to manage the increased data usage and to improve the level of service required by the new wave of smartphones applications is an essential issue. MACACO project proposes an innovative solution to this problem by focusing on data offloading mechanisms that take advantage of context and content information. Our intuition is that if it is possible to extract and forecast the behaviour of mobile network users in the three-dimensional space of time, location and interest (i.e. ?what?, ?when? and ?where? users are pulling data from the network), it is possible to derive efficient data offloading protocols. Such protocols would pre-fetch the identified data and cache it at the network edge at an earlier time, preferably when the mobile network is less charged, or offers better quality of service. Caching can be done directly at the mobile terminals, but as well at the edge nodes of the network (e.g., femtocells or wireless access points).
