Mobility in ICN: Network-assisted or endpoint-driven?. A Myth to be ousted: Mobility is not solved!. Computer Laboratory. Objective of this Discussion. Debunking some of the obvious “solutions” Stimulating a discussion on what we learned from current working systems
A Myth to be ousted: Mobility is not solved!
Let us focus on subscriber mobility first!
Let us think about this in terms of numbers:
-> what is the right assumption for N?
-> Let us start with N=1000
-> that hardly scales: it is simple but ineffective!
(*) in case you use Blackadder directly on Ethernet – you need to add any overlay overhead for other deployments
Let us now move on to publisher mobility
BUT: Do we really want to rely on infrastructure nodes to handle local mobility scenarios?
Most importantly: much work is still needed!
