Information-Centric Networks With Correlated Mobility

The information-centric networking (ICN), which is an important research direction of future internet architecture, has gained lots of attention from the research community. This paper investigates the impact of a correlated mobility on the throughput and delay performance of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) under information-centric environments, where the main concern of nodes is to retrieve contents stored by other nodes. Based on the degree of correlation among nodes, the authors consider two network regimes, i.e., the cluster-dense regime and cluster-sparse regime. In each regime, the authors study two mobility time scales: 1) fast mobility, where node mobility is at the same time scale as packet transmissions, and 2) slow mobility, where node mobility is at a much slower time scale than the packet transmissions. In each regime, the authors characterize the network performance under fast mobility and slow mobility, respectively. The results indicate that under fast mobility, correlated mobility improves delay performance at the cost of throughput performance.
