Overview

Content networking is a set of tools and techniques that operate at the layer above the networking layer, where the networking decisions are based on the content contained in the communication pipes and packets to satisfy the expectations of the users, operators, and content providers. Contributors from companies mostly in the US and Finland, with two from Japan, explain how the approach is being used in mobile communications networks to speed the delivery of content to users. Their topics include the architecture, protocols, content caching and multicast, characterizing the web workload of mobile clients, charging for mobile content, and algorithms and infrastructures.
