Abstract

A data-centric network architecture, Named Data Networking (NDN) has been developed to meet applications' growing demands of network effciency and resilience. Currently, the deployment of NDN in real network environments requires careful system design to not only enable NDN but also support IP traffc, considering IP network has been prevalent for decades and almost all the equipments and applications are IP-based. In this paper, we take the most popular local area network (LAN) technology, Ethernet, as an example to investigate incremental deployment of NDN. Assuming a local network with both NDN and IP traffc, we mainly layout three deployment scenarios: NDN-enabled hosts and all Ethernet switches, NDN-enabled hosts and all Dual-Stack switches (i.e., it can process both NDN and IP traffc), and a hybrid network with both Dual-Stack switches and Ethernet switches. We examine the technical issues involved in each scenario and present solutions. In particular, in the hybrid scenario, we propose heuristics to optimize the placement of Dual-Stack switches. Compared with traditional Ethernet, introducing Dual-Stack switches can improve network effciency and resiliency by utilizing more links, reducing each link's traffc load, and taking shorter paths, at the same time also maintaining the functionality of IP-based applications.
