   Deployment Considerations for Information-Centric Networking (ICN)
              draft-rahman-icnrg-deployment-guidelines-01

Abstract

   Information-Centric Networking (ICN) is now reaching technological
   maturity after many years of fundamental research and
   experimentation.  This document provides a number of deployment
   considerations in the interest of helping the ICN community move
   forward to the next step of live deployments.  The major deployment
   configurations for ICN are first described including the main overlay
   and underlay approaches.  Then proposed deployment migration paths
   are outlined to address major practical issues such as network and
   application migration.  Next, selected ICN trial experiences are
   summarized.  Finally, protocol areas that require further
   standardization are identified to facilitate future interoperable ICN
   deployments.
