    Deployment Configurations for Information-Centric Networks (ICN)
              draft-rahman-icnrg-deployment-guidelines-00

Abstract

   This document provides technical deployment guidelines for the ICN
   community.  First, the possible deployment configurations for ICN are
   described including overlay and underlay approaches.  Then proposed
   deployment migration paths for these configurations are outlined to
   address the major issues facing ICN such as application migration,
   and core and edge network migration.  Next, selected ICN trial
   experiences are summarized.  Finally, recommendations are given for
   protocol areas that require further standardization to facilitate
   future ICN interoperable deployments.
