Applicability of the Hybrid Information-Centric Networking Architecture


This document discusses the applicability of the Hybrid Information-Centric Networking (hICN) architecture by showing examples of the development of applications on top of hICN transport and the deployment of hICN routers in the IPv6 Internet. Among the many
