An analysis of NDN Congestion Control challenges

Abstract : Named Data Networking (NDN) proposes to change the core of the Internet. Based on mechanisms successfully used in P2P or CDN, it focuses on content and thus the Quality of Experience of users. Such an ambitious plan raises great challenges: caching, multipath, multi-producers, multi-consumers and security. This paper focuses on one of them: the control of congestion. Several studies have proposed congestion control solutions that fall into three kinds: the end-to-end solution, the hop-by-hop type and the hybrid one. However, the community lacks proper evaluations of such specific algorithms. In this work, we have implemented representative solutions on ndnSIM. In a first step, we have tested them on a small scale topology to ease their performance analysis and highlight their strengths and weaknesses. We complete this study with simulations on larger networks in order to confirm our conclusions. Furthermore, all results are reproducible. Eventually, the paper drives a discussion on how application needs could be considered in the design of a NDN congestion control.
